A lot of other cheap phones allow you to zoom in or out when taking pictures. £40 is not cheap! If you want a cheap phone, get the Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3
Here. Stop being so aggressive! I am merely making people aware that this phone is not great for pictures!!!!

Does your Alcatel Onetouch Pixi 3 have a personal assistant? Or does it have the latest of operating systems? Or does it have over 1GB RAM and 8GB Storage?

Most of these cheap phones only zoom in digitally, basically meaning the same effect can be achieved in editing software on the phone or a computer, it's all pretend.

Listen Billy Bob. I am not comparing this phone to the Alcatel one. You asked me what I expected for a cheap phone and I replied telling you that this phone, in my opinion, is not cheap given the poor camera. I reinforced my argument by presenting a phone that they are giving away for £15. OK! On that note, I will leave you and your phone alone. If you want one of these in like new condition for £20, you let m know. I have one sitting at the bottom of a cabinet. Merry Christmas and happy new year!!!!!

I wonder why it's at the bottom of your cabinet??!! Oh, I worked it out. It's because it's a piece of crap, and why would I pay you £20 if, like you just said, it is being 'given away' for £15 elsewhere.

Well said. In fact, even most of the expensive mobiles only have a synthetic digital zoom 'effect'.
I think even Windows phones have the synthetic zoom which is achieved using pinch/pull gesture when in camera mode.

You make me laugh... You said so yourself. This phone is a piece of excrement... http://previews.123rf.com/images/yavuzunlu/yavuzunlu1210/yavuzunlu121000017/15804975-D-Baby-s-dummy-on-white-isolated-background-Stock-Photo-pacifier.jpg. This phone does not have a digital zoom. Most people use phones to take pictures nowadays... Just carry on having a lovely conversation with yourself.

I'm talking about your crappy Alcatel, and to be honest, in case you didn't realise, phones don't actually have zoom within their cameras. It's an effect! This effect is used differently in different operating systems, so for example, using your crappy Alcatel, you can do it before/while taking the photo, whereas on a Microsoft phone, you do it after using the editor which is built into the camera app. Well done for your great technical and reading skills!

Does this come locked to O2?
How easy to get it unlocked?

It's SIM free

Hi. I received mine today, seems a nice phone. However, I inserted a SIM card that I have (Vodafone) but it says it is locked. Any ideas @Prodeal as you mentioned that it is SIM free? Thanks

When I first looked at the site it said it was SIM Free, if not, contact O2

"If you're on Pay As You Go, your O2 phone can be unlocked 12 months after you bought it. It’ll cost you £15, which we'll deduct from your airtime balance."

Looks like you should just send it back unless you want to use it on the )2 network.
