​No, because it's obvious.
Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 <--- worth about £99 at most.
I personal go nowhere near the SD6xxx unless it's the >= SD652. This is the minimum for a 1-year of hardware future proofing.

Not even an Alcatel.

Name is licensed to TCL Mobile.

As someone who's been in mobile business for 20 years I wouldn't go near this.

Yep an Alcatel with very decent reviews and spec. Amazing. But will they cut the mustard over time. Remains to be seen so jurys gotta be out on this one. Those brave enough to chance their £200 (approx) can feed back in due course.
got excited but then realised it's not the 4s.....still a great deal!!.....One of the reasons I'm going sim only and buying a thoroughly decent for around 200quid when my contracts are up :O) Heated up and thanks for posting :O)
Had this phone for almost 2 weeks now. Went form a Moto G 3rd Gen to this. Great phone and love the screen. Sound quality is really good for a phone. Used it with the VR headset a few days ago (first time trying VR). Very good experience but a little annoying to set up at first.

Having to turn on VR mode on the phone then carefully snapping it into the head without pressing anything and/or the flipping the phone the right way as it will take it out of VR mode.

Tried the pre installed bug lamp game which was ok for a few minutes. Then tried some VR video's which was amazing. I wanted to try a VR roller coaster game but for some reason I could not get it to work. It would load up but one inside the VR headset I could not do anything to start the game.

Vodafone have already released the idol 4s under their own brand name (Vodafone smart platinum 7) £295.

So that will sell FA units then. £100 less and it would be a game changer, like the original smart ultra 6 which was soon available for £99.

After playing elite dangerous on my 1080p nexus 5x with my bobovr headset, my next phone will need to have 4k, and a better battery.

If the headset doesn't gave any sort of button, you'll need a little Bluetooth controller of some sort to activate things once the phone is inside the housing.

The only accessories listed on their website are a mains charger, USB cable and headphones.
Not all that great for headset, but if you aren't too picky, the price is good.
