Hi everyone I'm gonna be buying a smartphone to take to Thailand with me. My price range will be 150-250. It needs to be unlocked and gsm. I'm basically just looking for the best overall phone for my money.

Right now I'm leaning to the moto g. Seems to be the best new phone in this price range am I correct?

I know nothing about smart phones and would be fine spending my money on a used one if that's better value. Any suggestions on a good used phone? Is getting used or a cheaper new one the way to go?

Thanks for reading. I'm a complete smartphone noob. Gonna be purchasing soon so this is a huge help!

Look for a used nexus 4 or 5. They are great phones and are the first devices to be updated with the new version of android, as they are phones contracted by Google themselves.
