None of the UK variants of the Moto G5 have a compass (including G5 plus, G5S and G5S plus).

Bargain. Was looking out for this one a few months ago but was put off by the high price.
What's the easiest way to get these unlocked?

Samsung for ever
Personally I'd rather get a SIM free Moto G5 with it's 1080p screen and stock Android for £10 cheaper but this does have NFC and a compass which some people will want.

Apart from the OLED screen, I really don't see the appeal here. There are better phones with 3GB Ram for this £.

From the phones currently available around this price (and intended for sale in the UK), I found the Vodafone Smart V8 to be the best of the bunch. Great screen, surprisingly great camera, Snapdragon 435 (an improvement over the G5 and G5S), 32GB, and 3GB RAM. Cheap to unlock too.
I have a Vodafone Smart V8, it's a great phone. Got an unlock code off eBay for £1.29 and now I'm back on Three. There is some Vodafone software built in but you can delete some of it and the remaining software is very unobtrusive.
Hello there, can anyone confirm if battery is removable on this model or not. Thanx.

It's not removable.
This is a £100 phone with £60 tacked on for the 'brand'.
I'm sure you can list 5 of these £100 phones then

There is some rubbish on these threads. Good find OP

I got one too for same price. Seems a good phone so far.
Decent phone but you'll need to root as the internal storage is a pathetic 8gb. Just a few apps and my mum's phone was reporting out of storage. Got sick of moving things and used ADB to set the external SD to adoptable. Much more usable now.

What a wally

None of those are superior to the phone in question. Cubit and bush do me a favour

The only ones close is the phone I bought my kid the e4 / g4 plus which ain't your £100 are they. Thanks for the laugh though.

Cubit and bush, you just proved my point about paying for the brand. Theyve all got full hd displays too bar the cubit which is half the price but same as this. Spank you very much.

Have you got the v8? Be interested to know what the camera is like. Have the smart ultra 6 and the only thing that let's it down is the camera particularly in low light. Would like something nearer the performance of the s7

I've had this phone for 3 weeks now and out the box you have 11gb not 8gb. The storage is 16gb not 8gb. I've been surprised how good the performance is too, very smooth and the other day Samsung updated Touchwiz in the Play Store and it's been even smoother since then. Fantastic build quality and great battery life, decent camera as long as you stick to using HDR in high contrast situations as otherwise it comes out too dark

So you would buy a Cubot or Bush smartphone based solely upon a higher res screen over a Samsung, priceless and clueless. You think simple resolution of screen is an indicator of quality do you? No thought to screen quality, cpu, wifi, amoled, cameras, look/feel, os installed, possible updates etc?

In addition none of those prices are available the Bush has been junked it looks like, the Cubot is near same price and The Medion is near £200

Seems you have really struggled here

You won't find S7 performance on any new phone at this price point. It's a lot to ask for £160. Even the £220 Moto G5 Plus, which uses the same sensor as the S7, produces significantly inferior photos.

The camera on the V8 is not amazing in low light, but the camera quality is still a massive as step up from the Ultra 6.

Rooted using Odin (tutorials abound on the interwebs) then used a combination of ADB and an app called root essentials from the play store
paid 209 will they refund price difference or gotta buy again?

The Bush phones are actually made by Archos which is a French brand
do these work with tesco/giffgaff ?

Being Archos branded in no way improves things, very low rent products presently. Plus I still have nightmares about having to pay for their codecs to use their media players.

Hi mate can you let us know if you have any luck with this? Planning to take the phone abroad so its useless if I can't unlock it. Cheers
This seems like a great deal to me - we've been out looking at a variety of Motorola's but the build quality seems worse than the Motorola's I've had before - might be time to change brands!
