All reviews on this phone are based on a rrp of around £450. For £100, you can't go wrong.

Needless to say, im not surprised the reviews suck lol
Edit: as jjokers below said, this review is based on the price of £450 though, so grain of salt i guess

Bad reviews... Cold
Mediatek processor...cold.

Doubt this will get Android 7.

Tiptop price & spec, was tempted by this cyber week at £129 so for the quality
and retro throwback, its worth £99 all night long... all night... all night long..

I think it would be hard to beat at this price, just bear in mind there are a lot of compromises with this phone - suggest looking at various reviews available.

It's not any old mediatek, it carry's a Hekio X20, ten core which
is used in a lot of Q2 2016 on much lower spec than this Kodak
chinese junko handsets for £200+


Supports RAW files with an ota software update from sept, so
you never know if a 7 or 8 update is still on its way.. got to be
worth biting the Bullitt on this one
Showing as £99.97 for me, but there is also 1.6% cashback with Quidco

Delivery charge needs to be added
If this had an optical zoom, I'd be all. over. it. As it is, you can get similar (better?) quality photos and faster UIs on a range of Xiaomi and Huawei phones costing £100-150. Still tempting though
wife needs a replacement phone, can anyone suggest something like this, i dont like the curve bottom bit. it needs to be 5" or smaller
Reading through some reviews and it seems like it's a great phone for the money but looks like it has no band 20?

Can you suggest either some xiaomi and Huawei with great battery life and possible 4gb ram Plz? Thanks
(I have Huawei p8 lite 2017 and P10 lite - camera are rubbish)
Anyone know if this can be updated to Nougat? Price seems a bargain - obviously no one bought it at RRP though

That's strange - my mate has the P8 Lite and finds the camera fantastic
Sunny outside pictures are okay, but dull day and night pictures are awful.

You don’t know what you are talking about....The camera and video on this phone is BRILLIANT! Great for YouTube.
This is cheaper than any standard compact camera and probably a good iPod replacement too
Why so cheap?
The reviews are pitting this with top of the range models like Hauwie 10, iphone and pixel, but the price is in the range of the budget smartphones. This seems like a bargain to me.

This is already 2 major Android releases old. I was hoping there might be signs that they'd be providing an Android 7 update but I can't find anything.
Good spec for the money! Nuts how much you get for your money with Android phones now
Thanks OP. Ordered from LaptopDirect but have not yet received any email from them to confirm the order. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for them to send email confirmation?
I remember my girlfriend was tempted to buy this phone on pre-order before it released, the specs told me she should wait. She also bought it at £400, I get to say I told you so now it's at £99. Fortunately I got her an Honor 7X instead recently. Tempted to buy to just replace my recently broken S5 as I've realized I don't need an all singing/dancing phone. Hm
I bought one off eBay last year (at more than this!) and have used it on a couple of holidays. I can happily say it's an excellent device. Great pictures and plenty of controls. I also have an iPhone 6s (and 2 DSLR's) and I prefer taking pictures with the Kodak; depending on the subject, the Kodak is usually better. As a phone, it is fine as a mid-range device; I doubt it will ever get a newer OS but the one it's got is fine for most people I would say. It's only drawback is the 'grip' which is great when holding it as a camera, but bulky if you keep it in your jeans pocket.

If you regularly use your phone to take photographs, buy this!

Higher price than you suggested and horrible reviews. Any other suggestions for a good practical case?
All in all reading the comments above - at THIS price i guess it is fair to say this is a good deal. Looking around and some of the RRP for it are at least 3 times as much!

Yes, you CAN pick it up elsewhere NEARLY as cheap as this - but WHY - this looks like a great phone for the money.... ..

Although, when i am being a poser in the rub-a-dub-dub with my new trendy fone, I am sure I wont be getting looks of WOW!! More like.. .. ... Errrrrrrrr>>>>>>???? LOL!!!!
I am sorely tempted!!! But - I have NEVER seen this make at all in any of the stores.... I like the sound of the camera etc
