i have this phone.
steal at this price personally i'd say. UI is great and stunning design.
only down side is doenst have 4g but unless thats something you really want/need then i'd say go for it!

269.99 on website

Had this phone for a little over a year, personally i couldn't get on with the ui but that was soon sorted by installing another launcher. The ota updates are a little slow to come through but if you go on the xda site there will be links to the latest firmware updates which are a piece of cake to instal, at the moment it is upgradable to kitkat but so far no word on android l. Overall I've been very happy with it

Can you explain How can I get it on this price
Thanks

No problem you goto o2's website find the phone select pay monthly option and choose the option pay £96 upfront and £8 airtime, give o2 your details and pay once you receive the phone call o2 and tell them you want to cancel the airtime simples

for more information on O2 refresh please check o2s website

Sounds good, thanks
Heat from me

go to huaweinews.com/201…12/ to download kit kat update walk thru guide on here also looks good for 96 quid

So for £96 priced you need to get O2 refresh deal, not payg deal

Any ideas if this will have an unlockable bootloader ? I I had a Sony Experia P off O2 and was unable to install Cyanogenmod because of this issue , I think O2 are the only ones to do this to their phones .
Voted hot as it is a cracking deal regardless of this :-)

Its a 24 months contract, O2 may refuse to cancel the airtime

Seems a lot of phone for the money.

Pretty competitive with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Just lacks NFC and wireless charging from what I can see.

This or moto g 4g which is better ?

This or moto g 4g which is better ?



Depends if you need 4g ? The moto 4g has 4g and uptodate software while the p6 has much better camera ,build quality,more ram and a slightly larger display . Other specs are about the same. Moto g has a near stock android which people might prefer while the p6 has huawei ui which has some cool features but i don't think will get updated beyond kitkat. i think you also need to compare price and saying that p6 is £20-£30 cheaper

not sure about locked bootloaders but regardless of network I know a warranty is automatically void if you root a phone

No they won't. Not if you've paid the device plan off.

Cheers for the info regards locked boot loader :-) so it looks like this will be OK even for O2 phones .
Yep thanks for pointing out that rooting would invalidate warranty but I am sure those rooting and flashing could also restore stock if they got that far but its a fair point .
Great phone for this price

Very tempted to get this, but reading reviews about over heating and decided not to buy.

I was sorely tempted, but read the reviews. Battery life is a major problem; pocketlint mentions they couldn't get it to last past lunchtime with moderate usage. You've been warned.

Never had a problem with mine, with moderate useage i've always had plenty of juice left in the battery after a full day

If you don't mind, can you post a screenshot from the battery usage? What's moderate usage for you?
I genuinely love the appearance of the phone (and I really want to like it), but a phone that dies mid-day is pointless for me...

this is only 8GB. You only probably have only 5gb left for storage! 5gb storage is nothing these days. Go to oppomart or aliexpress you can get a better phone with £96.

4G is nice to have. HD video streaming, maps & webpages load in an instant, downloads at fibre optic speeds. Certainly makes for a more pleasant mobile experience and all those seconds and minutes spent buffering and waiting add up. Why tie yourself down with old 20 y/o tech of 3G?

Hi OP,

Nice find, just wanted to clarify a couple things.

So you take this phone out on pay monthly on the lowest contract, pay off the £96 for the device, then cancel the contract... O2 allow you to do this? surely they must know people would take advantage of this.

Thanks in advance

Yes, there are numerous treads on this on HUKD going back a couple of years. Just search for "refresh" and read up. It works. Some people have found that O2 tried to charge them an early termination fee of the entire airtime contract so cancel any direct debits you have with them.

Thanks for the reply, I wasn't aware of this before, Cheers

Correct me if I'm wrong but:
"Your monthly bill is split into two parts – the Airtime Plan and Device Plan.

At the end of your 24 month contract, you stop paying for your phone and just pay for your Airtime Plan – saving you money on your monthly bill.

And if you want a new phone before your contract's up, just pay off whatever's left of your Device Plan. Then choose your new phone and start again.

You'll pay
£96 upfront cost
£0 Device Plan Device Plan Information
£8 Airtime Plan Airtime Plan Information
£8 a month" Source: O2 Website

So if I want to end the contract I need to buy another phone from O2 and make a new contract?
Edited by: "jotapb" 27th Oct 2014

don't like the fact that it's BT3.0 as opposed to the now commoner Bluetooth 4

If it's ROM what am I supposed to do when I've filled up all the space? Throw it in the bin?

I had this mobile a few months back, I would suggest stay with JB as kitkat update is still buggy, it's slowing down device, also had problem with gps navigation on JB and kitakat, its very inaccurate, not for gamers too as it has Huawei cpu and slow and problematic gpu. Pros: excellent design, good screen, nice camera, adobe flash support under JB, text reflow on stock browser, good loudspeaker and calls quality. Overall stay with Moto g unless you need good camera and superb design

Hello

Can the Airtime be cancelled after few months of use? Or does it need to be cancelled immediately up on receiving the phone?

From what i understand, your paying £96 upfront as with any other mobile contract that involves paying towards the device upfront.

Then you would normally have a monthly fee that is paid for 24 months - but with this contract, that fee is £0. There is an £8 per month charge for Airtime which would continue even after the 24 months and therefore is not on a fixed 24 month contract - ie, it can be cancelled at the beginning.

This would mean that in total, you pay the £96 upfront, cancel the £8 airtime plan (not a 24 month contract) and thats it, no device plan to pay !
