Found 19th Jan 2014
Locked to T Mobile, phone is £79.99 but must be purchased with a £10 top up bringing total cost to £89.99. It's no Moto G but it might appeal to users who need expandable memory.

Dual sim on some models.. wonder if this is..

Crap phone get a 5s

90 GBP is way too expensive. CPU, RAM, and screen are worse than Moto G. and it doesn't get the latest update from Google.

Did I say you can get a 5s for £90 . I was just recommending it for whatever price it is.

Hmmm shall I spend £90 or £500...? I know, I won't buy either and I'll hit the ignore button on the SteTheDon instead.

Good phone for the price!

5s ?????
you don't mean an iPhone, do you

Don't be fooled by the price Argos are offering and claiming you are saving £50. Orange are selling the phone for the same price.

Also don't mistake this phone for the Alcatel One Touch Idol S, which has a full HD 4.7 inch screen, 8MP Camera, 1GB RAM and only £129 from Orange, T-Mobile and EE.

On paper the spec does seem OK, but there is however one major floor and that is the RAM... It only has 512MB!

To non-geeks this is the memory the phone uses to run applications and the Android operating system. You really need 1GB of RAM to run the phone smoothly and use the latest apps from the Android Play store. Otherwise the phone is likely to freeze if you run several applications and judder a bit.

To be honest the spec of this phone is no better than the Huawei Ascend Y300 which the Carphone Warehouse sells for £39-59 (depending on the time of day!)... The only difference being is that phone has a slightly smaller screen at 4 inches instead of 4.3 inches. In forums discussing this phone, even though people have been full of praise for the value, the lack of memory at 512MB has been an issue with users.

There is no way T-Mobile will be offering this version as a Dual SIM.
