Those who are voting down, can you please let me know why? I suspect it's the apple and samsung trolls/ fanboys.

This isn't made by a slave and is therefore fantastic value.

So this isn't made by an Egyptian super race, I am disappointed.

Can you prove that other phones are made by "slaves" ?

"Conflict-free tin" - they must be clutching at straws if this is the best their marketing team could come up with.(_;)

Slaves? I'm sure no one is forcing them to work for Apple.

Of course they are not made by slaves.
BTW, are the workers at the iphone factories still routinely killing themselves?

Yes no one is being forced to work for them, just thier subcontractors are being worked to death. What a L*ser, look up Foxconn.

You could get a t-shirt from a Chinese sweatshop for 1p, it's doesn't make it a good deal you are pathetic, stop trolling. The specs are actually about right for the price point.

Using your rather twisted logic, maybe you should be more concerned at the numerous people in the UK working for the minimum wage?

In fact, you probably use a lot of products and services resulting from people on the minimum wage yourself. Which could be termed hypocrisy.

£250 for that spec in 2014 - Yikes?
For 30% of that - ie £75 you can get say a ZOPO ZP700 delivered from China within the week with Dual 3G SIMs on KitKat and a 4.7" QHD display.
eg etotalk.com/zop…tml
Had my better Lenovo A820 at c£120 from them over a year ago, and it's now c£95 though not on KitKat

Get lg g2 for this money

That's right the OS isn't capable of 64 bit (yet, anyway), and there's Apple stealing all these features from Android.Apple had this over a year ago.

People in the UK are not forced to work in these slave labour camps. AND we can up and go for a better job any time. You can go to London and work as a street leaner for 20£/hour. Your comment has nothing to do with the take home message. haha pathetic.

Don't ask for people to say why they are voting cold if you don't like the answer.

Theres a quick result of a google for a octa core phone with just as good, if not better specs, for less than half the price

lets see how cold this is by the time you are unsuspended



Ohhh my feelings are really hurt

Can see ban comin

The claim it hasn't been built using slave labour but are using MediaTek chips which are the lowest price chips on the market, want to know why? Because they use cheap labour. OP get off your high horse.

Such an angry little man you are, I see a ban coming you way very soon. Voted cold, ugly phone wouldnt have it near me :p.

If charity begins at home then don't buy from massive multinational (amazon, apple, samsung) companies who pay the UK workers peanuts.

Wrong again, i checked the website, nothing on it about MediaTek funnily enough because they know that by licensing the chips from MediaTek they are indirectly supporting cheap labour. If you want to give me a link to prove me wrong please do.
