Is it dual sim?
Aldi will have to do better price-wise than this. 3 yr guarantee is good, yes, though no one expects to keep it that long (unlike their Bauhn TV`s) , but spec to £ ratio is average. Not stand-out, barring warranty.
Spec-wise it's virtually identical to the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, which my 10-year-old hopes to receive for Christmas. The Samsung is around £80 best-price PAYG (inc mandatory top-up), £100 SIM-free, so seems a decent price.

I've not voted hot or cold, however, as I can't find any reviews to know whether it actually stacks up well against the Samsung.
Good little starter phone for someone thats never had a Smartphone.
1.2 Quad core processor, 1gb Ram, 8gb Rom/storage, Sd memory card slot...can't think of any other smartphone with them specs for that price.
Try this : amazon.co.uk/dp/…ics
720p , 5 inch, dual sim , fulfilled by amazon, good reviews AND it can be bought by the ubiquitous Gearbest for under 37 quid! gearbest.com/cel…d=1
Does anybody know the actual manufacturer for this one? The previous model (E4503) was manufactured by Lenovo, but I'm not sure who makes this one.
lenovo owns the medion brand.

Is it dual sim?



There a pdf manual on the website here

It suggests there is 2 sim slots, if that's correct for this phone then yes is dual sim.
not sure how this is cold, good spec minus the screen/camera and a 3-year warranty is brilliant. Suppose people would rather buy an elephone from China with no warranty oO
looks like a good basic phone to replace an original series moto g.

Looks as if it's unlocked from the manual so I'd guess yes.
Seems like a good deal so voted HOT.

can you get whotapp on it
Hi I'm looking on getting this phone but I was wondering is there google play on it where I can download apps such as snap chat instagram,pintrest, facebook and others and can I use my Vodafone sim in it x
does its screen use capacitance or resistivity please?
please help??!!! how do you get back off!! instructions say remove back to install battery,shows opening from bottom.but not how,dont want to force it, many thanks ( maybe a bit long in the tooth for this modern tech):|oO,
My brother just got this today, his first ever smartphone.

Considering Lenovo own both Medion & Motorola, and this is £60 cheaper than the Moto E (RRP) and exactly the same specification other than a lower resolution screen... I think it's a fine deal!

in the r/h corner there is a little spot to put your nail in hopes this helps
Got this phone this morning for 49.99 at ALDI, they only had six come in so lots of people disappointed. Its plasticy and cheap tot he feel but the phone works well. Its dual sim however only 3G not capable of 4G.
Kayleigh078 all smartphones have google play available on them. A dual phone meaning it can take two sim cards on different networks. This phone is also availbale on medion.com for £65 http://www.medion.com/gb/shop/smartphones-medion-life-smartphone-e4503-md99232-130019069.html?searchTerm=medion+E4506
Now I am looking for a flip cpver they dont seem to be available for it.
Just bought one and it appears a fantastic piece of kit for the money (£50). The girl in a Virgin Media store where I got a sim only package could not believe it especially as it has dual sim capability. She's off to get one before they sell out.
This seems good value. I bought one as my old iPhone wouldn't support iOS 7. Menu a little tricky. Took a while to suss how to assign specific ringtones to contacts. Does anyone know if this phone has a magnetic field sensor? I tried using compass apps and they don't work. Neither did the astronomy app. Says it has GPS but I've yet to try this outside. Hope it works as I use my phone as a satnav. Camera is OK at 5MP. Not bad for fifty quid.
I bought one on thurs, still playing with it ,any one know how to set up the sat nav ?
This is my first smartphone but I do have an ipad so have a vague clue of how to use it. Only seems to have one ring tone. Any clues on if it has more and how I can find them?
My micro SD card (M2) from an old phone doesn't seem to fit. Have they shrunk?

I would like to point out that NOT all phones have Google Play Store available on them. I think you may have meant all ANDROID phones, since my iPhone and Lumia do not have Google Play Store

The phone? I'd give you a tenner for it (I'm serious) as a spare; why anyone would consider this as a SERIOUS, main phone, is beyond any belief or common sense. I've had Moto G 1st and 2nd gens and also a 1st gen Moto E (to test, not as a main phone) and ALL of them trounce this toy phone, hands down, absolutely no doubt. To make matters worse, it's a Medion product; that about sums it all up, so, in my humble but informed opinion, I recommend passing it by and keeping your money for a better purchase.

Cheerio
I jus bought this mobile phone from Aldi, but I cant download What's app or Facebook I don't know why?
Purchased one of these for Christmas, The battery charge is very disappointed as it needs charging every 24 hours even when it is not connected to WiFi
I bought one of these a month ago to move up from an ordinary mobile. While I am quite pleased with it, it has some limitations. Camera for indoor use is no good - outdoor ok. Battery is poor and needs recharging nightly. However it has Google Playstore and I have downloaded facebook, whatsapp and others including more ringtones. So I am ok with it at present but will probably get a Samsung A3 later in 2016.
Is it possible to increase the keyboard size
Does anyone know if it has call duration timers like the samsungs ?
How do I take the back off of it? The instructions are written in german!
