doesn't look too bad a price for a sim free phone
#3
Specs seem good for the price
#4
Dunno about decent or not, but a fiver cheaper via laptopsdirect if you can wait on their cheapest delivery method.

Could u not stretch another 40 and go for p9 lite or Moto g4

Not the Moto G4. At least, not direct from Motorola.

Smaller screen, worse battery, worse processor, same ram, and ROM, I'd say it's a slight step back from the su6 but it's ok for the price. I had and Umi super for a day last week, it seemed very well made and was super fast but I sent it back after suspecting it had a dodgy ROM installed.

camera is only 8 mp but can only be better than the SU 6 which wasn't great

I think the delivery time would be the same as they're coming from the same place.

If you aren't a real big user of apps and camera then yes. It's a little light on storage with 16gig but the 2 gig of ram is bare minimum to run smoothly, that's a plus. Camera won't be great but daylight snaps or close up with flash will be ok. If your skint and can't stump up £30 more with a 2 week wait for a redmi note 3 Kate then it's ok I guess. Go for it

Thanks for your replies.
The only prob I'm gonna have if I buy this is the change from nano sim to a micro sim. Gonna have to see if TalkTalk will charge me to send one out.

TalkTalk should not charge for the SIM swap. The details are here: https://help2.talktalk.co.uk/talktalk-mobile-sim-swap

SIM size!.......use a simple adapter (pennies on ebay) to convert to micro sim

As DP won't sell you the phone for £5 less than OP, no delivery is somewhat longer than LDs cheapest delivery method.

159 for p9 lite plus beats headphones plus 10 Ee credit and free unlock
Sell ur headphones for 40 which is 20 less than what they selling for on amazon n u left with unlocked phone n credit for 120

Much better phone and very popular on HUKD is the Xiaomi Note 3 Global
Or they have Xiaomi 3S Global for around £85, both excellent phones

I had a look on both websites and they were both quoting the same earliest delivery date. Or was it more than £4.95 if you wanted next day delivery with Laptops Direct? I didn't really look into that when I ordered from them as the phone I wanted wasn't in stock so I had to wait a week or two anyway. I did like that you could nominate a delivery date at no extra cost.

I see what you mean now - although I only paid £4.95 and it allowed me to nominate a day, albeit not the next day.

My SU6 is packing up and need a new phone. Problem is I'm skint.
Is this mobile any good and would it be any better/worse than the SU6?
You could consider replacing like with (non-busted) like for £9 less than Debs cost, with benefit of familiarity & spare used battery etc:
