Saw this deal and thought it was a good buy considering the features. Sony camera and fingerprint technology. The spec I've pasted but have a google round for the reviews.

Meet The S1

The Elephone S1 is a premium, high-quality phone at a low cost. With all the features of a top-quality smartphone and a stunning display and camera you can't go wrong with this phone!

Remarkable Sony Camera

The 13MP Sony camera in the S1 supports 1080P video shooting along with enhanced photography effects. The Sapphire crystal lens covering the camera is built to higher hardness tolerences to better protect the lens from falling and scratching.

360 Degree TouchID Fingerprint Sensor

Equipped with a 360 degree touch identification sensor, the Elephone S1 can accurately unlock upon touch no matter what direction your finger is on the sensor.

The sim only deal posted by naffthedesimundaa would be a great sim only plan to match up with this. http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/3-sim-4gb-data-unltd-mins-unltd-texts-9p-m-108-term-possible-quidco-2505078

Only 1gb ram and Android 5.1. If it was 2gb or more ram and Android 6.0 it would have been ok.

And the moon on a stick would be nice as well.....

It's a £70 phone!!

Marketplace sellers usually do this when they don't have stock.

If it came with 2GB and 6.0, sam_of would tell us it needs 3GB and 6.1, it's almost as though he's a bot, reliably jumping into every post about a phone/tablet/PC with the same story, doesn't seem to worry about the cost or the fact that some people are more than happy not running memory guzzling apps.

Some of us are very happy with a budget phone offering these specs... A **** lumia costs around this price without half of the specs and limited apps. If only we could have everything we desire.... *Goes to live in a dreamworld.* However, all inputs are welcomed.

Phoned EE and got myself a 2GB data plan, unlimited calls and texts for £9.99 a month... Although I can get a 5GB of data upgraded because I have EE fibre. I'm happy.

Absolutely. The camera alone and software is. A year newer too. I have Sony Z3 compact and picked this one.

​I would not. There are minimum hardware requirements. In case of Android phone it is 2gb ram at least . Buy this you will waste your 70 quid and get a crap phone.

I've bought it since company is in uk. I paid via paypal . so i hope i have some assurances if it isnt up to scratch i have possiblity to return/refund etc
Thanks for this :)

i'd suggest you check out gearbest or banggood websites for the similar priced phones with at least 2-3gb ram or my favourite budget phone : Bluboo jus under £100 with 3gb ram.

Not unreasonable to expect better spec at £70 when a £75 phone fulfilled by Amazon has Android 6, twice the RAM at 2GB, twice the storage at 16GB, all the UK 4G bands (unlike the Elephone), fingerprint ID, fast charge, etc. It would be difficult not to justify the £5 difference, unless 5.5" screen is 0.5" too big.

Hands up...that's a cracking find at that price. Especially fulfilled by Amazon
You should post it as a deal....

Would this be a better buy than the Moto G4 and Vodafone ultra 7??

Sorry for all the questions but with all the different phone options out there I think I'm sorted then another comes up :-)

Only if you browse the net on your phone for calls texts and whatsapp these specs are fine, wouldnt go the elephone route though. My father is still on a 1st gen moto g and it does everything he would ever need until the battery gives out.

​When his phone runs out memory and gives memory errors, he will know what crap phone you bought for him. Better install clean master on his phone and ask him to run it when he gets memory errors.
#27
You'd be better off with the p6000 pro 3gb ram 16gb ROM octacore which can be had on eBay for around 20 quid more. The phone in this deal is not 4g.

No it doesn't, you might need 2GB to do what you want on it, but Android itself will work fine for phone calls and a lot of applications in considerably less memory. The amount of minimum amount of memory required to run Android 6.0 on a device with a 64-bit processor and a small/normal screen at 560dpi or more is 1824MB, but it drops to as low as 424MB with a 280dpi screen with a 32bit processor.

This is incidentally the same for 5.1 and specified by Google themselves, quite why they use a DPI figure is a bit puzzling since number of pixels is the important figure, i.e. size + density need to be taken into account, quite what they mean by small or normal is anyone's guess but that's Google's specification.

As far as I can tell the screen is XHDPI and it's a 32-bit processor, which according to the specification requires a minimum of 512MB.

That does sound better but that rather assumes the camera is up to scratch, by the way remember that a 64bit processor requires on average 50% more memory than a 32 bit processor, so it's not like you're doubling the specification, but it is better.

I know right? also the Gear VR isnt compatible with it, there's no phase or laser focus. Storage needs to be 64GB these days to be worth considering and battery really should be 3500mAH+. Also no quick charging 3 is deal breaking on its own. I'm not sure what the support and aftercare is like, do they have shops around the country like Apple do for aftersales? That's pretty much required tbh. You're also going to want 4 year warranty incase you hit any problems. I think it should run iOS as well.

I dont understand why they didn't include an FM transmitter, Retina scanner and an octa core processor.

If they upgraded those things and kept the price the same it would be hot from me, but as it stands. Its cold. Missing too many key features TBH.

Hello Does anyone know of a reasonable spec phone, max 13cm in length, preferably less, that can be bought for around £100. I am not interested in games or watching films on it, just phone calls and whatsapp and a bit of internet.
Thanks

there are those crappie alcatel pixie 3.5 phones which can be bought for around 20-30 quid depending wether it's on offer. They are no good for gaming. but will be fine for calls and Whatsapp viber skype etc but it only hs back camera. it has gps which why I use it to keep track of my kids when they go off to play and if they lose it its not a big loss.

1GB Ram? I expected a Elephone to have a longer memory :)

Seriously though, not sure why you would buy this instead of a Moto G 3rd Gen at a similar price.
