I'd be interested to hear what people think of this phone, as I'm in the market for a 5.5-6 inch phone under £150.

Personally I would prefer a Chinese phone with snapdragon processor as I always use the Gps. Mediatek don't perform anywhere near as good. Otherwise i'm sure it's not a bad phone

Yes, as soon as I saw Mediatek I thought no thanks, need Google maps.

Overpriced as its Mediatek and doesn't have a FP reader.

That's what I'm thinking, too. There are so many well specced Chinese phones available which have Mediatek processors.
I'm currently using a Doogee X7 Pro which is just about passable, but even with tinkering about with the engineering mode the GPS is usually about 10 metres off.

I'm sorry to say it but I think that Chinese phones are in the main cheap for a reason.

Around this price range, I'd try getting a Moto G4 Plus. amzn.eu/1Xs…XMo
New, its a little above your 150 budget, but I myself bought a used G4 Plus for under a hundred quid (white colour is cheaper). Mine was sold as 'Good' with screen marks, and you could see really fine scratches, but once I put a tempered glass protector, they melted away to the naked eye. The body was fine.
It is a good phone with solid performance. The full HD screen is a bit of a rare treat in this price range, most being somewhere in the range of 1280x720.
