This is actually 1.5GB RAM and 16GB storage. Tesco don't advertise it correctly. Impossible to unlock though but a SIM FREE version is available from Argos for £100

Oh, it's also 4G capable.

There are multiple versions of the Pixi 4, with *vastly* different specs.

I've no idea why they're all called the Pixi 4, it just confuses the consumer.

I know it's only £75 though low resolution and Mediatek processor would stop me from buying.

What is the pixel density?

What are you basing that on as they seem to be selling this

Thank you. Correct I was unable to locate this information anywhere in the description on tesco website. I found this here link and wanted confirmation.


I bought one myself from Tesco 2 weeks ago. I was certain the specs were different to what they were advertising as I'd read online what others were saying. They were adamant the phone was 8GB storage and 1GB RAM but it's 16GB storage and 1.5GB RAM. Runs on a Snapdragon 210 quadcore processor at 1.1GHz

Resolution is 1280 x 720

Oh, can the OP tell me which sellers on eBay unlock this phone please? I've tried 3 sellers and they've refunded me saying they can't do it. This is the 9001X model and many sellers state in their listing that they can't unlock it

Love the sales patter, "Large but compact" WHAT?

​definitely 1GB Ram. 8GB storage. they don't do a 1.5GB Model. think you must have bought something different

​and that's after checking the box at Tesco's today. they are locked to Tesco's also. think maybe you could send a pic of the specs on the box?

Anyone actually found a case for this phone?

​The box doesn't contain information about RAM or ROM

Read the opinions on GSMarena page and someone on there even says what I've said about it

Just checked on Argos and their version has 16GB ROM and 16GB RAM! That's going straight in my basket :P

Sounds like I found the wrong info, assuming waynester21 is correct. In which case this looks like a good deal if cheap to unlock.

I still can't find info on the net about all the different variants. Their own site says it's available in 16GB/2GB and 8GB/1GB variants but it doesn't mention the 1.5GB RAM version.

There is no way on earth that the Argos variant will have both 16Gb RAM and 16Gb storage.

Argos do supply 16gb version. I know someone who has brought it from Argos. Though they cannot find any case for it.

​I know, I was only kidding. It'll either be 1.5GB or 2GB I'm assuming. I don't know if any of you guys have this phone but there are some issues with it. Sometimes the back capacitive button thinks it's the recents button, and sometimes when you're scrolling through webpages it'll randomly click on something which is very frustrating

Got one other week and it's spot on... Better than my xperia n cases are on amazon

I know I'm a bit late, but I had to get this phone unlocked through Tesco. I normally use eBay but there were no codes for this model. You have to buy a Tesco SIM then top it up with £10. Call them and tell them you'd like to unlock the phone. They'll charge you £10 (the £10 credit you topped up with) and they'll send you the codes, just try them separately. They sent me five different codes, the very last code worked for me. They say it can take 7+ days but I got mine the next day day. Hope this helps someone.

Anyone know for sure about the amount of RAM on tesco vs Argos? 2gb I would consider buying...

its 4g...go through the network settings and you will see..its also 16gb not 8gb...for a cheap brand you cant go wrong for the price.i got my son one in early nov from tesco,at the time it was £70 with no top up required..great thing is the big screen. might get one myself,and unlock it as im on ee...
