Thanks to rflfimo on pointing out this deal in my previous deal:

hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…182

This phone is priced as £35 with Mobile by Sainsbury's but I can confirm that it is Unlocked to any networks. THis has been tested so far with EE and GiffGaff and works great!

Talking to the lady in Sainsbury's yesterday, even though those phones are bundles with a Mobile by Sainsbury's box, they are all unlocked.

The phone is a temp for for myself however for £35 it isnt too bad at all! It does only have a 4 inch screen, 512mb of RAM and a 1.3 dual core processor but it Does have an SD Card slot for up to 32gb. I noticed last night that you can actually specify to use the SD card as the main storage which is cool

>>>>>
Also you can get Double Top Up of your payg credit until Xmas Eve!

Brilliant find Darth! Was going to add 512mb of Ram, but sure you can do it! As you might get the "oh it only has 51mb of ram comments" here

7 month old tech for £35, crazy money!

Stick Android Lollipop 5 on these and she will fly!!!

nice find sir good shout!

Its a really good price and im surprised how well it works too. With the SD card slot you can just use app 2 sd or something similar and job done ok, there is a little bloat but not as much as most

Looks like there is a way to get 5.0 on there:

has it expired? I searched before I posted and couldn't see it

Confirmed. I believe this price is active until Dec 24th.

Ordered 2, lets see how long they take to arrive, compared to the Vodafone Moto E and Vodafone LG G2's that are still pending from our orders on the HUKD thread before BlackFriday!!!

Gifting one to a local charity xmas raffle, keeping the other to put Lollipop 5 on ;-)

Can someone test and report back on Viber usage with this phone? Can it cope or is it bringing it to its knees? Thanks

Viber is fine on the stock OS 4.4.2/4.4.4

Been messing around with Lollipop 5 on a couple of these purchased at £35 and Android 5 on this handset [as predicted above!] is so fluid/lag free, you would think it is a Note4 or Nexus 6!!!

Has anyone else put Lollipop 5 on this handset yet?

i think i have to give this a go. if it makes the phone that much better, thats a bonus!

Just purchased as a present for my mum - has large easy to read menus so will be perfect as her first smartphone. Excellent price as well - thanks to the poster.

This phone was available in the black friday sales at CPW along with the better y530 for £20 and £30 respectively. Considered this phone before from here, has been on offer a while and is a good price however I have a suspicion it will appear in sales again after christmas.

Just thought I'd mention it.

Problem with CPW deals though, is ELIGIBILITY. Few can get them, so, they can offer what they want.

Lol darth ninjad this from this thread......

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2

Suppose ninjaring from own thread is ok?

Any way i got one and its worth £35
Edited by: "seanmorris100" 18th Dec 2014

I paid £80 for mine, and then bought one each for my sister and her boys. Great phone for that price then, scorching now!

I've just grabbed the S5 for £240, but I still keep the Y330 as my second line.

very nice! my daughter has got this one and it is very good

Do these come with any Sainsbury's branding on them? I fancy picking one up for my mum, but she's on Asda/EE and any Sainsbury's apps would probably confuse her.

Been looking for cheap androids to use as IP cams - these will do nicely. Hot!

I did yes, sorry! I thought it was a better deal and i did try to give some credit to rflfimo on pointing it out

Good price though i dont think is as good as the y300 which it replaced. You could pick the y300 up for £50 after last christmas. As a basic phone though it's good value. Voted hoot.

just had a look and there are options for other languages.

So a Three PAYG sim should just work on this phone? Cheers.
