After the earlier postings from John Lewis and Tesco over the past few days for the phone Amazon have now dropped the Lunar Grey 2GB (Single Sim) version to £139.95. Full specs can be found on the website.
Even camelcamel was still showing lowest price of £158.72.
Realise it has been around this price a few months back but unless your Cher and 'can turn back time'!

I find the absence of a compass/magnetometer a bizarre omission, but otherwise decently cheap phone which makes the step up in price to g5 plus a difficult choice

I agree but nothing new though, the G4 didn't have one either
Rather have 2 year g/t from JL for a bit more!
I believe this should have been the rrp at launch for this version of the G model. If the 3GB / dual sim model was £10 extra I'd look to purchase. Are members who have one happy with the quality of the camera?
this or xiaomi redmi 4x ( not note!)
O2 did it at this price as a 'launch special' - but it was locked to O2 (Tesco).
still can't believe they put a Snapdragon 430 in the moto g5.

It's a budget phone with a budget soc. I had a go with a wileyfox swift 2 plus using the same soc. That phone seemed fine so I imagine this to be also. If it lags, I'd be looking at the RAM.

None. LG G3 from ebay for £90 custom rom it you have a phone still kicking ass and alot better than this turd.
Camera has no stabilisation, unlike ipod or iphone so unless you have steady hands shots will be blurred.

I have had a G5 for a couple of months now and very few of my photos have been blurred! I also like the size of the phone, at 5" and I haven't experienced any lag at all. In fact I'm very happy with the G5 in all respects.
surely the xiomi note 4 is a better choice? or is there something I'm missing?
Failing to see how this is an upgrade from the Moto G4, unless you prefer a smaller screen?

Its got a FINGER PRINT READER.
Easier to unlock than entering a pin every time. Also a quick removable battery
For those saying the LG G3 would be a better option, would they recommend the following import (I've no idea on bands etc)...

bit of a pain when you're trying to navigate by walking but not noticed it otherwise - priorities I guess, for me it was a cheap replacement for a broken nexus 5x (bootlooping) and taught me not to spend much on a phone in future!

The lack of NFC bothers me more but....whatever, I'm not buying a random chinese brand and I'm not spending £700+ on a samsung flagship

yeah that's the G5+ which is a lot more money, or was at the time I bought the G5..I think it was over £200, but fair point.
