This phone is a clone of the Blu Win Jr and actually has some half decent reviews.

We bought this for our son. Very impressed with the features you get for the price - including earbuds with a mic, gel skin, screen protector and additional coloured back! We're in awe at how fast this unit is. Its snappy and the screen is bright. The build quality is good. It is a dual sim phone. Overall, we would recommend this as a entry level phone that performs well and has two cameras and one flash. You will need a SD card if you want to load apps, music or take pictures and video. Oh and Cortana is awesome!

got one friday took it back today, no matter what I did battery life wasn't as expected so on Monday I had every battery saving option set to on, no wifi or data or bluetooth I pretty much made it a 2g phone, 100% at 9am and at quarter past 8pm phone dinged to tell me it needs to go on charge as only 10% left, phone had only received 2 and sent 1 text all day. apart from that its pretty snappy to use and a decent screen, its a rebadged Archos 40 Cesium

I also suspected a duff one but couldn't be bothered risking a replacement and having to drive back and forth again if that turned out to be a lemon too.

Looks like a great price. Not seen too many dual sim windows phone available easily in the uk. Would buy this but with the recent purchases of the linx tablets, I've had my fair share of new gadgets to play with.

In response to a question about the Nokia Lumia 930, Microsoft's official Lumia account tweeted that "we plan to upgrade all Windows Phone 8 devices to Windows 10 in the future."

The reviews on Argos site are in majority rating the phone highly. Furthermore, this is a clone of the BLU Win Jr. and there are lots of good reviews for this as well.

As mentioned above, we have been very impressed by this phone. The UI is slick and smooth. Battery life is very good. We have not had any problems at all. For the money, in terms of the features, it is a bargain.

As their son is happy with it I don't suppose anyone really gives a toss how you feel, with all due respect.

I cant wait for a high end manufacturer to make a dual sim phone. An iPhone 6+ with dual SIM capabilies or a Note 5 would be a dream come true.

But not likely to happen during my lifetime.

RAM of 512MB is the main issue here ....

I need a budget (under £80)smart phone with a decent camera, is this the one??

To all the moaners seems like a lot of phone for £60 for that price who cares about os updates?

You tell him F4STFORW4RD!:D

You buy a phone for 60 quid, you don't seriously expect it to receive every update going forward do you?

If you can stretch an extra tenner, the lumia 535 (cheetah at argos) is a deecnt snapper for the price... auto focus and flash, only 5mp, but good for what it is, also has a 5mp front cam too!

From my experience with a Lumia 520, the low RAM does slow the phone down. Some major apps also won't install on devices with ram under 1GB.

You need to compare like with like....this has a better processor than 520...this phone has Quad core rather than Dual core in the Nokia 520.

512MB RAM ? Move away, nothing to see here...

Yes but a long wait for delivery, and if something is wrong, a long wait to sort it out. I have had 3 Chinese handsets, and they have all been OK, but if you want something NOW then Argos is the way to go.

What is the advantage of a dual SIM phone, sorry but this is the first I have heard or read about it

So what version of Android is Windows 8.1?
