Prospective buyers will want to know if it's sim-free or whether they are tied to an (expensive) deal!
Who with?
The freezer aisle? oO

what does it mean by powerful quad core processor, is it 1.2 Ghz or less?

I would not buy it, but maybe that is interesting for someone. Some heat added.

Mine was fine until I fell off a chair and sat on it.
I, on the other hand, would never have a Samsung or iPhone.
I've never had one of them but would just like to join the "I've never had one so cannot judge them but they're rubbish" Looney club. :p

in all reality how much extra would it cost manufacturers these days to put 2gb ram instead of 1gb? im sure for only a few quid more it would make these cheap phones much more pleasurable to use. get with the programme phone manufacturers!

Is it simfree? Or are you tied to a deal?
Can you have Pay as you go?
#14
The phone is SIM free and unlocked, so should be able to use pretty much any SIM card on contract or payg.

Elephone p9000, Xiaomi Mi 5 or if your looking a bit cheaper maybe the bluboo X9 or maybe the honor 6. Some need tinkering installation of google play like the Xiaomi and blu boo so if your used to androids is easy enough

You can take it for granted if you are buying from Aldi you are getting a good quality product at a very good price. I have bought various products under this brand name and all were top class
#22
Have bought one of these today. Having problems loading Facebook, rebooted the phone 5 times still not working, screen freezes so can't use icons. Reboot takes forever. DON'T bother buying one, mine going back tomorrow for a refund

Thinking about buying this phone as a sort of spare to my iPhone 5. Wouldn't be a huge tech genius, so would someone explain what is it that's bad about 1GB RAM, thanks. Also, can you get snapchat on it (sounds stupid but I need to make sure)

Processor and RAM aren't adequate for a decent user experience on this device in my opinion. I'd avoid. Sorry OP :(

Not funny, I have a speech impediment and underwent therapy for my stutter and lisp for years as a kid.

I'm reporting you to the modths. ;)

Like too many Aldi specials there'll be 10 at each store and once sold out, end of.

Pity because on paper, not a bad deal for something unlocked, dual SIM, available in-store and easy to return if faulty. The 1GB RAM is fair enough at this price.

Seems a good deal although I'm no expert, I went for the BLU phone that was posted. Similar specs I think but an extra 1GB of ram.

Damn. Good to see Aldi selling phones that are about the same quality as their food then.

Mediatek and 1gb ram, and for the hat trick of crapness, it has circa 1996 screen resolution ... At least it ain't from gearbest.

1 GB ram are you for real? I'm sure there is better options out there which comes with a dual sim surely..

Much better phones out there for the money.... Good warranty on a phone though...

awful price for a 1gb phone

For the money you can get better dual sim phones on amazon, Aliexpress, gearbest, geekbuying, coolicool.

No-one seems to have any perspective or context whatsoever on this phone. Its for £69 for God's sake not £269
Actually couple months back I got a BLU Windows Phone which I upgraded to Windows 10 dual sim etc etc as a back up phone for £29.....(off Amazon)
