Maybe you should look at Xiaomi products, plenty of usable cheap phones

Voted hot for the price.
But keep away from mtk CPUs IMO
This has e compass and gyro, may be good for navigation but unusual at this price point.
can you use banking apps and youtube and whatsapp on this phone? thats all i use my samsung s7 for and that costs hundreds

Yes but for the price difference you could buy a new phone every year for fifteen years for the price of a top end phone. I doubt even the iPhone X will be usable in 15 years.
just because it's a SIM free phone doesn't mean this deal is a freebie!

Nah. Had my fill of barely-working tat from the other side of the world which is deliberately hard to return. You shop at AliExpress If you like but I'll stick closer to home.

I'd do a bit of research on xiaomi before calling their phones tat... they are anything but tat.

Xiaomi Phones aren't tat the build quality is up there with Crapple sorry Apple they use Snapdragon processors and they are a third of the price of similar specced Samsung, Sony and LG phones.

Fair comment, I know nothing about their phones and I can see their reviews tend to be good. It's more the customer servivce offering from the retailers I have issues with.
Wen are Three (stores?) due to stock Xiaomi?
Excellent price, voted hot.
May pick up one of these for my mum and dad who are forever managing their apps/storage space on my old 8gb Moto E phone I gave them!

Worth adding to description that this is dual sim or can accept up to 128gb SD card in 2nd sim slot.
I had a Bush phone before I bought a Galaxy S7 Edge and I've still got it, it runs perfectly with no problems at all, in fact as it's sort of redundant I've got it running "Dramlab" 12 hours a day flat out. Think of it this way, my Samsung is like the Mercedes of the phone world and the Bush is a Dacia, both do more or less the same thing but obviously one is faster and better in almost all respects...but they both work

My old Bush phone came with a 2 year guarantee and despite being in semi retirement is working perfectly
Thanks op.
Will do as a replacement for the wife's phone which she recently dropped down the loo (but was ashamed to admit and ignorant of the damage caused by repeatedly trying to boot it straight away after )
Using a Xiaomi Mi A1 from a deal on here, replaced the original one plus one that was a bargain for its spec in its day but now oneplus want too much for their phones. For the spec with exception of camera that is not as good not terrible as one plus for the price its a good phone.

No. You can only call people on it. But the new feature of this handset is people can also call you.

AliExpress isn't the only website

Xiaomi products are not barely working tat, i can't say so much for other brands, they're actually great products, maybe you should check them out when Three store stocks in the UK

If they made bad products they wouldn't be one of China's biggest companies

As I said, my beef is more with the suppliers than the brand.

That review seems to have been ghost written by Yoda. The fastest it is not.
Any glass screen protectors? Got a film (that is what they call it, right?) one in the box...
Can any D5 owners confirm if it has LED notifications?
