1.5GB RAM -> gsmarena.com/sam…php

Looks this is cheapest price this has been. Hot deal then.

How does this compare with the s4/5

Ive just had one of these on contract ( I had an old S3 ) its loads faster, and is a lovely phone. A bargain for this price!

About quarter of the price, less memory and much lower spec processor and display.

It's a nice phone, certainly one of the best available for this price. Unlock codes are about £5 on eBay.

I didn't rate the camera much when compared to the Moto G 3rd, but otherwise it was pretty responsive.

This does seem a good price, but I'm waiting for the Smart Ultra 6 to come back down to £100 as I assume that it's a better phone. Heat for the price.

Is this dual sim?

720p amoled will make other £100 phone screens look pathetic

You would think so, but I found it a bit soft looking and grainy, especially around text, due to the pentile arrangement of the pixels.

A full RGB IPS screen looks better at 5" and 720p in my opinion. 5" and 1080p would be preferable where a pentile matrix is used.

The J5 also lacks a colour profile app and is set to natural colours by default, so there isn't much of that saturated colour pop that is normally associated with Samsung AMOLED screens.

I think the M4 Aqua is better than both and is also £99

The Moto G 3rd Gen has been on sale for less than this for months - it's even on the same website as this deal.

shop.vodafone.co.uk/sho…965

bare in mind the j5 only has two point multitouch while most other phones have five point multitouch. Although not function breaking it is a minor annoyance.

​ok,any reason why it doesn't state it is 3gen? and its only 8gb,I thought the 3rd gen was 16gb?

The spec is for 3rd Gen. As per usual the Moto G has different variants of each Gen. There is a 16gb ROM 2gb RAM version too

Good price and a nice phone.

Odd description on the Vodafone website though as I thought the J5 was 4G compatible?

The specs on the Voda website are incorrect. The phone supports all UK LTE (4G) bands.

​I tried to buy from Argos last week as had an Amex £10 off £100 but they were out of stock.

I have this.
Bought it from ebuyer for £150 3 months ago.

It's a very nice phone and the 13MPx camera is brilliant. Downside it only has 1.5GB RAM and 8GB onboard storage and requires a SD card.

Funnily enough I was comparing this to the S4 on YouTube earlier and although on paper the S4 looks better in some ways, menus etc. at least were speedier on the J5.

Does the 20% apply to even Pay As you go phones?

The new phones have much lighter TouchWiz slapped on them.

There are 2 versions of 3rd gen Moto 1GB RAM/8GB storage +2GB/16GB storage. Anf this is 3rd gen 100% in the link(13MP camera + the picture of it + waterproof)

​Finally someone that looks at more than just PPI. Personally I prefer LCD as they look much sharper and accurate. I don't find an over saturated screen very useful. What I do like about AMOLEDS is that it doesn't have to illuminate every pixel which can save battery. Considering AMOLEDS degrade over time and suffer screen burn as well I'm not very keen, even though the S6 edge screen does look incredibly nice...

In layman's terms AMOLEDS are more vibrant but less accurate with colour reproduction. LCD's look sharper and 'cleaner' but do not look as vibrant as AMOLEDS. Very much a personal preference and best to use both in a shop to see which one you prefer.

The specific phone models, or just in terms of Android? If the S4 receives the same update then shouldn't it be able to keep up at least?

Ultimately I suppose that could mean that apps generally run better on the S4 but not general UI usage.

There is a name to my pain, and it is TouchWiz.

Can these be unlocked?

Yes, about £5 on ebay. Search for "Samsung j5 unlock code".

If the S4 received latest TouchWiz it would perform better. It has stronger CPU+RAM than J5 so it should be more snappy. According to Wiki S4 will not get the latest TouchWiz Nature UX 5.0.

Hi I am interested in the Moto G.
If I get that PAYG, can it be unlocked to work with an O2 sim?
Is it a simple ebay jobbie for unlocking?
