what's going on? a seemingly decent spec windows phone from Bush? Heat from me.
Seems like a decent WM mid-ranger. Personally I'd rather go for lumia 640 refurbished from o2.

Thanks for the Topcashback info. Was just about to add that myself lol.
It's a rebranded Archos 50 Cesium (oddly the Bush includes more storage at 16GB, and a higher res front camera), which is £20 more expensive. The processor is a Snapdragon 210, which is basically the same as the older SD400, just clocked 100mhz slower.

I like that they include an extra white battery cover, clear protective case and screen protector, as these are often hard to find for slightly obscure phones.

Hot from me.

To anybody buying this: Make sure to update the OS to the latest version, and also the store apps. I'm using a Lumia 550 at the moment, which still has a few niggles and bugs, but no showstoppers. Initially the phone was so buggy that it was almost unusable, the initial OS build (10586.0) isn't great, and the apps (such as 'Phone', 'Messaging'...etc) were beta versions from October 2015. Microsoft should really look into putting a sticker on the box warning people to expect a broken experience if updates aren't performed.

Makes sense.

There are separate phone and messaging applications for each SIM. You can switch between SIM's on the fly using a switch available in each app.

Only 1 SIM can be used for 4G data at any one time. You can switch which SIM you need for data in the SIM settings page. The secondary SIM will only work for calls and texts.
Anyone able to compare this with the blu win hd lte? In particular the camera?

Or a German health spa.
This is a really good deal. My dad would love this, and agree Microsoft really should ensure retailers remind customers to update their purchases just in case. Makes absolute sense.

with the dual sim you choose what sim you want to use to call someone
so for example when you find the person you want to call it will come up with "call terry Number using sim 1
or "call terry number using sim 2)
Can anyone confirm if this is dual sim active.

It appears it's a rebadged Archis 50 cesium.

Would you know if the bush/Archos are Dual Sim Active. Thanks

Both SIMs are active, but only one can be used for mobile data at a time (you can choose which SIM to use for data in the settings).

Good spec but no way gonna answer this in the pub with BUSH written across the back unless you can trim it down lol, hot though.
These are really unpopular in Hollywood and Brazil.
Jesus.....Archos must have the worst brand image ever if they need to rebrand to BUSH to sell more!

Yes, I believe its call quality can be a 'hairy' experience when out West

It's quite a thick bush
Thinking of getting a WM phone for my mum.

I already got a Blu Win HD 5" LTE for my GF - and she's found it really easy to use + snappy (and it has all the apps she needs) Unfortunately Amazon have stopped selling them, and I cant find anywhere else to get them from so need to look at alternatives.

So its probably a toss up between this and the Lumia 640 (available from vodaphone for the same price, and I don't think any top-up is needed!)
I mean for a budget phone,you can not go wrong! Who would have thought Argos making phones back in the day?
