Great phone - Purchased one a few months back.
I have this phone,really like it. Good deal.
Is it laggy after windows 10 upgrade?
Is this phone pretty big? It seems most phones are getting bigger these days...

Is it laggy after windows 10 upgrade?



No it runs Windows 10 smooth as butter, I have it installed on 2 640's, runs almost as well as my 950 XL apart from apps loading faster obviously.
Looks good, but I'm holding out for the 650 / 650 xl now my smart 6 ultra is doing its usual androidness of lagging.

650 looks great! It's a shame it's a budget phone or I would have been more tempted to go with it over the 950XL.
Thank you
Flubit offering it to me at £90.50 but if the 650 is released in a few months I might hold out for that.
I'm torn between this and the smart 6 ultra i have coming from Amazon tomorrow (payed £115) my old sony M2 died last weekend. I have used windows lumia before (i don't remember the model) and i loved the smoothness of windows, but has the app situation improved? windows app store didn't even have a decent eBay or BBC news app before.

Mrs had the SU6. Got rid as camera was dreadful.
Looked at this but ended up buying another 535 for £39.99 - bought one for my pain in the butt teenage son about 6 months ago after he had lost, smashed, dropped, destroyed his third nice phone in as many months. He drops the 535 daily but it seems to have survived, would recommend it.

Should add this is on the o2 website piotrb linked to - locked doesnt matter because we use giffgaff.

The 640 is a good all rounder [had the dual sim] for most everyday tasks, bit of social stalking, some game
playing and MS outlook app rocks on it ;-)

The 650 will have the crappy SD200 [slightly updated 212] in it [unless it changes] so will be slower than the
640 range anyway.. and as already mentioned [unless dual sim hits UK first] will be aimed at "SME/SE/Small Business" targets..

The Ultra6 is a cracking phone for the £ and fast for what is under the hood..

If you fancy a Windows change, the Blu Win HD is brilliant [win 10 rom coming jan] or
Android best value V speed, would be the DooGee X5 Pro [currently running 5.1] both
are on hukd deals..

Worth a play with the Ultra6 and if you do not like it, send it back ;-)

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, i was most tempted by the doogee x5 pro but all the EU stock is gone and i cant be without a phone until one ships from China, up to 5 weeks. If there was eu stock at that £50 odd quid price i would have gone for that for sure. I think perhaps your advise to have a play with the smart ultra 6 and then decide is best and i wil do that over xmas and maybe doogee x5 pro will come back into stock. Don't know if the camera is any better though, or indeed is as bad as people say.

Cool, glad it helped ;-)

The new [eu] Doogee X5 Pro stock should be back in on either 28/29 or 5/6 so worth
a peek after you have had a play with the U6..

Snappy at - what cover did you buy your son for the 535? My son has the very same issue?
Can you use a Tesco mobile sim on a 02 locked phone, in particular the 640 ???
Paid this at CPW in November and still £79 at Vodaphone
