Good price for 4G, dual sim, Marshmallow phone. Locked to o2 - £39.99 'launch price' until 16.11.16. Specs otherwise are reasonable, not top of the range. Good option for nieces and nephews (or grannies and granddads) at christmas, perhaps. Free delivery. If you can suggest better then let me know, cos I'm seriously thinking of getting this to replace my ageing Kazam. Looked at Wileyfox but reviews are discouraging. Marshmallow is a must, I think, to make best use of the microSD card. Probably won't run as hot as a Galaxy Note 7, so I'll buy a toaster separately.

Can anyone tell me if both sim slots are locked to O2 - cos that would rather undermine the point of having a dual sim phone...?

I would doubt it is Dual SIM phone. O2 has never sold Dual SIM phone. They would be selling the single SIM version only.

Can this be unlocked?

Will this run Pokémon Go?

Not true.

£59.99 In Argos. Dual sim slots, so you can use your phone on a local network while travelling abroad or use different plans to improve your chances of getting signal wherever you are.

​o2 do sell dual SIM, the oneplus 3 is a dual SIM!

but I take your point, they haven't sold dual SIM before. but they may do from now on tho

Got a refurb LGK4 as a backup from the same place , came as new (with generic usb cable only), you choose a tariff but pay no extra, next day free delivery....

And (for me) you can just shove a giffgaff sim in with no messing with unlocking.......

Only 1 gb ram otherwise I would have bought O2 website does not mention ram. Android phones with one gb ram give memory problems.

​Perhaps, but the battery won't usually last long enough to do anything that advanced.

The One Plus 3 is a dual sim phone sold by o2.

It's single sim. Just confirmed from O2 chat

I can't buy without adding at least a £10 SIM. Is this corrrect?

Only 8GB Internal memory. Just not enough.

anyone know how this phone can unlock please

True, but there's also a micro-SD slot for extra storage

​Extra storage. But can you move apps onto SD cards?

​If it has marshmallow then you can use the sd as app storage.

Could not find anything on google to unlock it?

Not sure o2 will unlock it?

Great deal if you are in the Android market, HEAT op

​That's not entirely true. Majority of apps don't run off sd cards, they cannot be moved from internal storage. Even when downloading apps that can be stored on sd cards, they need to download to your phone first so you'll need the space for that to begin with.
8gb will leave you with around 3/4gb of free space which if you're planning to use a lot of apps, is useless.
I have no games on my phone and very few apps and yet it's over 8gb.
8gb is only useful to use a phone as a phone, not a media device.

hot if it's dual, cold if it's not..and it seems not confirmed by 2 people

On the topic of 8GB of storage, it might be just down to the version of Android you at running as to what it will allow - and it's not as simple as just 5 / 6.
I moved from a Moto 4G (3rd gen) to a Moto G4 Play.

The 4G had 8GB internal storage, and I added a 32GB microSD card. I installed apps on it, ran out of space, then tried to get apps to move / install on the SD card, but found in most cases with large apps I could only move the core of the app, but the "data" portion of it, would remain on the internal storage. Since for many games the bulk sat in the "data" rather than the app, it made the microSD useful for only pictures, music and videos.

Now on the G4 Play I have taken the same SD card with me, formatted just for this device and it not only allows me to install to the SD card, it seems to now use that by default.

Oddly both devices were running Marshmallow, and to my knowledge were as up to date with versions as the handset would allow. I've not bothered with rooting / sideloading etc. just taken what the phone could find when looking for software updates.

Now being able to properly expand the storage makes a load of difference and as we all know, it is far cheaper to buy 32/64GB micro SD cards than it is to pay for that to be built into the phone originally.

No, this is not correct.

8GB should be banned, it can't cost manufacturers that much to double the storage to 16GB and make it an infinitely more usable.

good price, probably one of the cheapest phones around for 4G
