That sounds quite nice. Would have been perfect if it had a 1080p screen...

I really am puzzled with this. The cost of increasing the RAM from 512 to 1MB must be minute to the manufacturer and since they've chosen to use the latest Android version, 1MB has to be a must to gain the full benefits it has to offer. Once you've loaded a couple of apps this device will surely start to lag.

It might be perfect for users who simply want to make phone calls, text and browse but anything else forget it. Looks good though design wise.

Not £39.99 though is it!
Although for around £60 it looks pretty good - Doogee been making phones for a while now, last year they have a few posts on here & people seemed pretty happy with their handsets

We like to think our text messages and other information stored on our cell phones are "For Our Eyes Only," but unfortunately, that's not always the case.

That couldn't be more true today as it was discovered some Android devices from Blu Products, the leading provider of unlocked smartphones in the US, sent full-body text messages, call logs, contact lists, and other sensitive information to a third-party servers in China.

Mobile security firm Kryptowire made the find, noting the information was sent without users' knowledge or consent. About 120,000 of its phones were affected, Blu tells The New York Times.

The information was gathered and sent via a third-party application preinstalled on select Blu devices, such as the R1 HD and Energy X Plus 2. Text messages and call logs were sent over every 72 hours, while other personal info was shuttled every 24.

Thanks for the heads-up. Just ordered an Xfire 2 and while not on the list of affected handsets, I'll be checking out the installed s/w closely 8-)
