Asus Zenfone 5 (A500KL) 2GB RAM 16GB ROM 4G 5" IPS screen QuadCore £96.99 (RED) DELIVERED at Ebuyer.com

Found 24th Jan 2016
5" IPS LCD Display / 1280 x 720
Qualcomm MSM8926 Quadcore 1.2GHz
16GB Storage
8 Mega-pixel Sony BSI Sensor
Android KitKat 4.4

YES, the battery is not 5000mah or even 3000. Point is, the Asus charger is VERY fast. So don't think you're going to be waiting 5 hours for it to charge back up from empty (provided you use a wall socket, not your weedy laptop, obviously).

Please note this is not a Sony phone, or a Motorola. For deals featuring these 2 products, please enter "Sony M4" or "Motorola" in the search box accordingly. Thanks.

This seems to be currently the cheapest price for this phone from a reputable source (i.e. not Expansys). Therefore I have posted it.

Yeah. Exactly. I asked where you can get an unlocked Sony M4 Aqua for £96. Or £97. So the correct answer would have been "oh yeah....nowhere".

£7 more is within the same price point for a significantly better phone...

Totally Agree. The Moto G 3rd Gen which is £89 from Vodafone and a £3 unlocking code off Ebay is much better value. Will probably get a decent amount of future updates also.
I bought moto g third generation from Vodafone and unlocked for £2 from ebay. Unlock code arrived within one hour. Its great phone and will be upgraded to marshmallow very soon

It would be if the decimal point had been in the correct position! Further down the page it confirms "Capacity 2110 mAh". That is a pitifully small battery for this type of phone.

Not sensitive just baffled really as to what a Sony deal has to do with an Asus deal but that's just me : logical.
Post the Sony deal - except oh wait no it wasn't at "this price point", so not happening. Ho hum, moving along, etc etc.

The Vodafone MotoG is the 8GB model, which only has 1GB RAM. I think phones are heading towards needing 2GB RAM these days (the MotoG 16GB has 2GB).

Yea, I know but it's still the one that SDBradfo said they couldn't find, so I linked it for them.

Even though it's only 1gb ram I think it's better than this Asus.

Only 8GB of internal storage kills this for me.
Smart 6 ultra blows this and any other sub £150 phone out the water, even though its been on the market 6 months. Only thing against is it is looks as cheap as it is. Motorola execs probably committed suicide after thinking the 3rd gen stood a chance.

My problem with the Smart Ultra 6 is the sheer size of it. If I wanted something that size it would be a contender (along with the Honor 5X, though the price of that still isn't published yet).

I have the SU6 in white, I think it looks alright and have had several people ask if its a samsung (make of that what you will!). I agree though, theres nothing under 150 that comes close, and it matches many phones around the £200 mark. I also have a Z2 which went in for repair, it was hard going back to it from the SU6.

White wasn't around when I got mine on launch day, I can imagine it looks a lot better, if I didn't need something at the time I might have waited. Grey just looks.... Grey. And plasticky.
why is this so hot
i posted this for £2.01p more with double the memory ie.16gb NOT 8gb and direct from Asus

am with jrussd when comparing the mobile phones (rather than the illogical brand premise) - the Sony seems to offer better value for money including protection from being pee'd on
