Yep, good price for a decent phone - its no Samsung or iPhone beater but for sub £100 you cant go wrong.

Good price.. Heat added
Guess it ll be locked to Vodafone and would need unlocking. Correct me if wrong.

Its good price for specs wise. However not sure it will be locked or unlocked. Heat added though.

Most likely locked to Voda, £9.50 to unlock on eBay

I've had it for a year. No regrets, as fast as the day I bought it. A little disappointed with the camera, colours a bit insipid in daylight. But then again I'm fussy.

Did you get it from Vodafone? If so was it locked?

I got an unlocked one from carphonewarehouse and it was fairly simple to update to emui4/ marshmallow. Not sure if it works for a network locked one though.

​No, mine was from CPW and was unlocked.

Thanks.

Anyone know how this compares to Moto G4 ?

Yeah it's a decent phone , the camera was alright , capable of an okay picture but struggled quite a bit with too much or too little light but for under a £100, you cant go wrong

anyway of getting around the £10 top up

Bought this last week same price and asked if I could swap the top up for a case but sadly not. Bought a decent looking shockproof case for a fiver delivered on eBay.

i posted the same deal week ago it was cold

lol, posted last week and the week before

​i bought one previously from Vodafone, and was locked. Vodafone startup screen, apps etc. someone previously posted a guide to unlock which I followed. was like four quid.

agree with the comments on the camera. it's a little weak, but then you aren't spending premium money.

How does this compare to the 2GB Moto 4? (apart from small difference in price after unlocking). Not sure which to go for

If the prices were the same you'd take the moto all day long due to the better screen and stock, (almost,) Android.

As the prices are different by a good chunk, it's your choice as you get what you pay for.

Sorry. My mistake. I thought you were talking about the moto g which has 2gb ram.

To answer your question. I'd nearly always take the device with the most RAM if prices are equal.

I have one of these.
Its an excellent phone except for the battery life which is appalling .
The battery is only 2200 mAh and I barely get a day out of it with minimal use.

thanks for that!!

sterion75

thanks for that!!


No bother

Its very frustrating that the battery is so poor as I cant fault the phone otherwise.
Marshmallow is slightly better than Lollipop for battery life but its still very poor.
Its also very slow to charge .

Edited by: "Fano" 11th Dec 2016

Can unlock Vodafone handsets for free now anyway

Only comment I can make on battery life is that it's better than the iPhone 5S it replaced. Charge it every day but it gets quite a hammering.

had for about 6 months and find the battery fine on mine ...people walk around with GPS on WiFi on and screen brightness at full you just need to learn to optimise any phone to get a full day out of a battery . I also find the camera very good ..yes I don't think you are going to get great photos on any phone in the dark with little flashes they have on phones . overall very happy with my p8 lite i would snap up at this price .

Just a word of caution Moto G4 play isn't the same as Moto G4. play is a lite version not so good

This or the smart ultra 6

This or Sony Xperia XA

anybody know can this be sim unlocked??

Missus has this phone, word of warning, her years old Sony M2 out performed this.

​Unbelievable how everything has timing even people's opinion. You didn't post on the weekend buddy

If it was the p9 lite at that price this would be scorching. I only buy 30 max off ebay got a right bargain z1 compact. Looking for a cat 6 lte phone as my mast is bound to be upgrading soon to lte a will jump on the first p9 lite thays under a ton. Vodafone is free unlock to payg sim owners with a chargable call in last 3 months. Visit www.vodafone.co uk/nuc and fill the form in

considering to replace this dire Lenovo

can you tell us all about this simple update to marshmallow please?

as i`ve had this phone for over a year and can`t stand emui,

put a launcher on it but the phone is a bit flaky using a different launcher,

all updates ive tried have failed, in my opinion theres nothing simple about upgrading this phone.
