Found 15th Feb
Gotta pay the £10 for a Vodafone SIM, but £5 CB with Quidco.

All-in-all, seems like a lot of phone for the money.

2GB RAM, 16GB Storage... 13/5MP cameras.

Sorry good price and have some heat
No, I don't believe it has any fingerprint sensors. I think the 'Pro' version does, but commands twice this price...
Yes! Good first post cracking price, I won't be buying it, but this is a deal hunting website, so I've voted hot!
Great first post , Heat Added . Hope you keep going with deals like this .

good points decent battery and a compass which is usually not on cheaper phones and moto mobiles - people seem happy with performance

That's what worries me, there seem to be multiple version (the manual on Huawei says yes and mentions dual sim too!)

quidco.com/car…cts £5 for all PAYG Handsets
Does the phone have led notification??


and if get it with £10 vodafone can i sell the credit? or phone locked?
I'm no expert, so could someone please explain how this can be unlocked to any network when it's only the Vodafone option that's this price, and O2 and EE options are £20/25 more expensive? Surely if unlocked it wouldn't matter which network you started with, so no difference in price? The SIM free option is £109.99.....advice please!

i just bought one , if anyone like to have my £10 vodafone credit let me know i can send to you the sim for small change.pm me,

All carphone warehouse handsets are unlocked regardless of which pay as you go sim you go for.

I bought two of these phones as gifts 3 days ago for £69.99 plus £10 topup each with a EE sim as that was the cheapest then (a bit gutted at seeing this deal ) and both are unlocked to all networks.

Typically it's just the network subsidising the phone, hence it being cheaper on one than the other.

All it means is you end up wanting a tenner on a network you don't want, but hey, if it still gets it for you cheaper.

When you buy direct from Vodafone as an example, they can insist on a network level SIM lock and normally do crap like a Vodafone boot loader etc as they only have their stock.

Cpw can't have 4 versions of the same phone knocking about, hence them being unlocked.
I got this phone a few months ago and had to take it back as it took 8 hours to charge each time. Maybe I was just unlucky but I couldn't put up with that every time, every day.

Its to get you to buy a Vodafone £10 sim card with £10 credit - Vodafone are hoping you will stay with them but you can just bin the sim which will be in the box or given to you with the phone and pop your current sim straight in - Its Nano sim the smallest size but you can cut down a micro sim or might be able to pop it out from current sim

Basically you are paying £70 for the phone - sell or give away the sim

Its strange that only Vodafone is this price but quite often its EE with a £10 sim which you can bin as well

Were you using a good quality charger or just a usb cable?

Should not take that long - Would expect 2-3 hours max - 1 hour would usually do about 50%

I used the Huawei USB and plug that came with my old Huawei phone (Y6 II Compact)
cracking price but guys is this still running android marshmellow as its latest operating system? seems a bit outdated
Great price for the device, but I will spend the extra and get a nokia 3 - at least its going onto Oreo, and it covers more radio bands

Extra £30 of course... Quite like the look and feel of the Nokia 3 in the shop but don't know what it's like with real time usage
