CHEAPEST EVER, rebranded ZTE Crescent/Orange San Francisco II, with huge developers' support, easy to unlock. I paid 99 for mine and my wife is happy with it... Quidco paid after 3 months (£20 on that occasion).

Quidco is £10 not £20 (for PAYG Handsets worth £20-£59.99)
- haq

-To haq - I received £20 when paid £99 in Jan 12 :)

Quidco is £20 not £10 (it shouldn't be, technically haq is right, but £20 tracked on mine!)
- Rubisco

Quidco could track at £20 but could change to £10 when your not looking.
My advice: Don't hold your breath.

As of August Quidco / TCB now tracking @ £10

ok ive had the phone for about 12 months , so will give my personal review

pro+
good looking phone simple and due to its silver strip alot thought i had a iphone 4
screen resolution is more than excellent and good size 3.5 inch
runs just about all apps and games i have tried
cheap to unlock , i risked it and did it for free myself
everything on the phone works ie wifi/sat nav/app store/
speed wise its ok but not up there with the best 800mhz processor arm6
love the tether option works excellent
will work with orange swappables if you know how to, i get sky sports1 2 3 4 on mine

against -
touch screen is not very accurate and can be a pain to text constantly missing the wrong button, but you do get better with practice
battery will only last a day with a lot of use ( but thats common with most android phones )
touch sensitive buttons dont always light up in dark so your guessing which of the 4 buttons you are pressing
doesnt support flash due to being arm6 processor so im told. DOES NOW WORK
have tried some top games like gta not really upto it too laggy (its only a budget phone after all)

end of the day best £50 phone out there by a long way only other phone i might be tempted with is the g300 but thats £100 so cant compare really, other phones in the house i have to compare with this are sanfrancisco 1, samsung galaxy y , lg optimus one, samsung galaxy europa and this vivacity is better than all these ,

Is it just me or does this look a LOT like an iPhone 4? I guess apple didn't think this was worth getting blocked so they went after the tablets and SGS line with the patent suits.

Apple don't care about patents or people copying them, they just want to kill viable competition and innovation.

Please could you list the faults and strengths from a long standing user's point of view?

The specs are same as sanfrancisco, it is cheaper than sanfrancisco, if so why is not getting hotter?.

sanfrancisco deal went to 704 degrees ->http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sanfrancisco-2-with-20-credit-84-99-argos-1265140

Quite frankly any armv6 device these days is not worth buying, unless the price is something ridiculous like 20 quid.

Yes I am serious and I was not saying that. I said there was no point buying a armv6 device now as both android 4.0 and 4.1 do not natively support that instruction set, if you've currently got a armv6 device going strong, then keep it, definitely!

Edit: Can we get £10 cashback from Quidco as well as £10 from TCB?

no its either quidco or tcb not both , i still think this will get very hot when ppl relise this is a sanfrancisco 2 clone for £50 and you wont find a better phone around that price , and whats up with gingerbread anyway does everything i want it to , got ics on my tablet and cant see what all the fuss is about, believe it or not not everyone as the cash to have the very latest upto date phone and have to make do with last years model , this is last years model at a very good price, its not a s3 but as good as my brothers samsung ace and that was like more than double price of this phone.
I can afford any phone i want but my choice is i dont want to carry a £400 / £500 phone around due to greater risk of theft and risk of losing it , but thats my choice this phone as done everything i have ever wantted it to do and i prefer it to my mates iphone 3 .

you get orange swappables on orange panther contract, you have options of book club/music club/tv chanels/ sky sports channels things like that , i choose sky sports swappable , so i get sky sports 1 2 3 4 and espn and a few other sport channels on my phone for free and can view as much as i like on wifi or 3g at no extra cost, data usage for this service is unlimited and does not come out of your normal internet allowance.
