This much better than the BQ Aquarius X5 on Clove? I quite like the look of that one at the same price.

Also unofficial cyanogen-edition for this model too.

Thats a pretty bad value for money. Heck, you're better of with a bunch of phones at the moment.

​Well, I've bought a Huawei P8 (not lite) 2 weeks ago from Carphone for £150, so... check your COLD meter above:)

Great support from BQ for their phones with android updates pushed quickly.

Hot or Cold dont mean nothing to someone like me, most ppl on here want and vote for brands they know and that what clouds their thinking or judgment...to those who are not 'brand-fanatics' this phone is top notch!

By the way i too bought a Huawei p8lite from carphonewarehouse recently but willing to sell it for this, as maybe you dont know - 'Xposed framework' doesnt work with Huawei phone, also the p8 or p8lite do not have a separate sdcard slot and so less convenient than this.

The P8 has a 2,680mAh battery and this has a 3120 mAh battery.

​I bought that too, I'm fact I posted the deal...and while I am enjoying the P8, that deal is done and dusted and does not stop this being a very decent buy for the money. I believe people are voting cold cause of the relatively unheard of brand outside of Spain. Their loss, BQ phones are very nice.

totally agree and their loss indeed

Bought it and have it and its great, its replaced my ageing and slowing HTC One M7. Was going to go for a Moto G glad I didn't. A few friends have Moto G 2nd and 3rd gen still good phones but this is a much better for similar money, hi-dpi screen, big battery, 5 year warranty, great build quality feels light but solid. Quality packaging this has a real feeling of quality and some care about it.

Thanks OP very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend to anyone. Plus its given me some kudos with my manager who is from Spain and loves BQ products.

No problemo

and i agree, very good value for money indeed and that huge batt mah is a particular bonus plus the separate sdcard slot which makes it a 'true' dual-sim phone indeed.

re kudos acquired, thats make it even sweeter hey

Looking at the Bq aquaris x5 if anyone can offer an opinion? How is this one different?
