Single Sim which is a shame.

Asus only sell unlocked phones.

I best get in there before "weak battery" comments - as per my £100 Zenfone deal. It charges back up VERY fast. And I went from a 3100mah battery (Xperia Z2) back to this phone - as it's such a joy to use and it so faff free. If you're thinking of getting something that is responsive, simple and really great for gaming too, get one of these.

Saves your battery and your body from excess radiation.
Cracking phone for the price. Really intuitive and simple UI. Agree with the comments regarding battery life, the reason I got rid is because it wouldn't last a full day. Have a Huawei Mate 7 now that runs and runs. I'd certainly not put anyone off buying this unless you're a power user life myself who needs 3.5hrs + screen on time.
anybody ordered from asus before ?
wondering if i ordered now, would it be delivered for christmas
cheers
Been this price on scan for months. Good phone but not on the list for marshmallow
