3 megapixel camerahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

ordered

Is it unlocked?

I think it's locked to O2

The 512mb of system Ram is not good for intensive apps or gaming.

Stick a 128gb microSD amazon.co.uk/San…8gb and you got your self a nice mp3 player for less than £70.

I would not recommend this phone to anyone because a Samsung phone with 512mb RAM and 4GB internal memory is not any good at all. You will struggle to use basic smartphone purpose (call, text and email). This is because Samsung phones heavily contain boltware which uses lot of RAM and space.

Sorry, thats absolute nonsense. This phone will be perfectly capable of texts, emails, browsing, music etc just like any other phone, provided you don't try to do all things at once.

That probably will depend on whether you can live with the low-grade, smaller screen on the Pixi.

What phone would you be able to offer for £29 quid with these specs and brand new with warranty, please ?

Can anyone please let me know if this is Dual Sim or Single?

11 year old daughter wants a Samsung phone for her birthday because "all her friends have a Samsung"
I'm now so tempted to get this as she doesn't know the difference between this and the latest model xD
Mean mummy?

ss wrong person *edited lol :-)

cex pay £37 (tho not totally sure the same phone, but from matching the o2 phone to the GT number of gt-s7390, and the info for the s7390 / name to the cex name of galaxy trend lite) they should be the same, tho ofc o2 like the make things hard to say 100% they the same with adding the number 2,

so £6.01 profit, and ofc not an upgrade via cpw so easy to bulk buy (2% cashback via the normally places to)

In the link you provided, you compared the Alcatel to a model of Samsung phone that has Android 4.1 installed, whereas this has 4.4. Apart from that, the specs look identical to here.

This Samsung is better spec-wise. It has a faster processor (1.2GHz vs. 1GHz), larger screen (4" vs. 3.5") better camera (3MP vs 2MP) and larger capacity battery (1500 mAh vs. 1300 mAh).

Disadvantages:
- The Alcatel has a front-facing camera, which I'm not sure the Samsung has.
- The Samsung would probably be locked to O2, and eBay doesn't seem to have any solution under £15 for unlocking.

Sensible mummy imo! Though are you 100% sure she won't know the difference... kids today tend to know way more than back in the day! lol Good luck!

​****, I have this phone and have no problems whatsoever!



Definitely sure - I asked her "what Samsung phone" and she replied "the Samsung phone that's out" O.O lol. Not that I mind she doesn't know - I am however honestly considering getting her the A3 as it's down to £125 on vodafone at the moment and the fact it's meant to be a/part of a birthday present (not until Dec) would make me feel less guilty BUT she constantly loses things and I'd be a bit more peeved if she lost a £125 phone rather than a £30 one

**** - replied to wrong comment >

Would this be suitable for use with an ip webcam app?
We've tried successfully with such an app to make a baby monitor that we can vote on smartphone. Trouble is, the nexus 7 isn't easy to mount in a good position to use as the camera. This could be mounted much more easily, provided is powerful enough to stream the video.

I had a Panasonic phone with 2 MP camera & it would knock spots off many larger MP phones, it's not all about the mp size, so they say ;-)

touchwiz and 512mb ram?

£15 to unlock on eBay

I got the alcatel pixi 3.5 from sainsbury for £20 during the intro offer but it doesn't have a front cam even though the specs on the net say it does

nope i agree with qwe, take the galaxy ace for example. seen it happen loads of time for different people with similar phone. basic functionality doesn't work and freezes

The Galaxy Ace specs wise is a million miles behind this one so how can you even compare the two in terms of what works and what doesn't?

My other half has this phone (hence why I said earlier that its perfectly fine for "everyday" use) and there are no problems with it. Yes, you cannot realistically have loads of apps open at once but so what? Its a perfectly capable phone for £29. Yes, it wont play the latest and greatest 3D games but again, so what, its a phone? It plays time killers like Candy Crush, Bejeweled Blitz ( I know, I hear the awful music all the time coming from it) just as well as my HTC M8 does albeit on a lower res and lower quality screen, but again, for £29 thats not even a slightly big deal. Of course there is an element that you "get what you pay for" but to suggest it doesn't do the basics that it sets out to do, is frankly, garbage.

I had an Ace 2 before with 768mb RAM and after the 4.0 update it was practically useless. Even opening texts would cause it to freeze up. Don't get any phone with less than 1gb RAM especially not a Samsung due to the bloat.

The 512mb of system Ram is not good for intensive apps or gaming.


You'd be insane to even attempt it on anything like this. Would probably do as a music player and web browser OK though.

Just ordered for the ex, hers has just gone bang, it will do as all she does is talk and text.......


Anyone know what size sim card it takes...

Thanks Deano....

The girl I spoke to later on the O2 chat said standard size, but I don't have much faith in that so ordered a new 3 in 1 sim for her from Giffgaff just to be sure .............

Will confirm size later when it arrives, I was quite surprised with the "Free next day delivery if ordered before 10pm"

Edited by: "mfactor" 7th Aug 2015

It is indeed micro SIM according to Samsung's website: samsung.com/es/…PHE

Yep Micro sim just had to cut one down....

Another thing if anyone buys one is that when making or taking a phone call a padlock appears saying double tap to make/receive call........

After an hour on the net with loads of advice about turning things on off , I finally sorted it, well it still does it but it is supposed to , apparently there is no proximity sensor to tell the phone you are putting it to your ear, so the double tap turns off the screen sensor so you don't do things with your cheek whilst in call....

Still I had a play with it this afternoon a little slow but perfectly adequate for £29 delivered,

Just bought one for elderly mother - her first smart phone. She needed something with a better keypad than her old Nokia brick. Had her number transferred to it and it seems fine for what she'll need. Well impressed for £29 inc delivery (next day in my case).

Heat.

coming up at £49
