Think this is actually fairly normal for this phone, so not outstanding value on phone - but about the best deal I can find from a UK seller for a new phone under £70.

2GB RAM, 16GB Storage, Dual SIM, 1.3 Quad Core, Android 7 & 13 MP camera + fingerprint scanner & a metal body.

If anyone can find a better deal, I'd be glad to see it for a cheap everyday sim-free phone.

Was 50/50 on whether to vote (being VERY happy with my ZTE Blade A512 which is the same price)

But the dual sim, fingerprint scanner, Android 7 and metal body I think are decent extras over the A512.

Only considerations against for me are the brand (and A512 has 5.2" screen)

TL;DR - voted hot :-)
I would say no as its not 4g unlike the blade a512 that is.

Is the A512 still this price somewhere?
3G? Stone cold
Cubot - Bought the Cubot Cheetah 2, £125.99 amazon it was at first a fantastic phone for price, so impressed that my mother decided to buy one too - them 3 weeks on it started to overheat and switch itself off, got worse and worse to the point where it overheated within 5 mins of switching the phone on and using the Internet, so returned got full refund, my mother's developed the same problem so back hers went too!

Cool, where did you get that for under £70?
I agree with the brand & that zte looks like a better chip too.
I'm not fussed with the fingerprint scanner or dual sim, as I'd never use either.
I suppose it might get an upgrade to nougat at some too.
If you post a deal I'd maybe go for it.
Price aside, is this Phone any good though?.

Eg. is it better/inferior to say a Doogee X5 Pro for example?, or .....

Thanx. :-)

Is this UK based?
Doesn't look like it..
Looks like djbe's comment is fake - I can't find it anywhere for "the same price" & he/she isn't answering to the various questions, asking for proof.
So, I'm still looking for a better UK phone. Other one someone added was Chinese..
Better UK phone under £70 I should say
This is the best spec UK phone I have seen in that price range, and i've been looking for a while. I'm not bothered about about 4G so this is a strong contender.
Good value for money. 2 downsides:
- charging port is at the top of the phone
- back button is on the right and open apps on the left
You get a screen protector and basic case, UK charger and cable.
