Same price in China, but backed by amazon in the UK, I know which I'd choose, collect the £15 voucher.

Killer specs, that massive battery (5150)and nfc.

Great specs for this price imo.

Girl on screen is interesting too, kinda my typeHot (the phone)


Slightly unbalanced looking lady I thought like she'd just eaten a wasp willingly and wasn't quite sure if she like it or not.

A most curious choice of model to promote a phone.

used one of these for a few weeks when i flogged another handset, got it for this price a few months back on same type of offer - well built, fast and the battery regularly did for 2 days messing about - screen is cracking too - heat for sure, silly specs for the price!

Hot (the phone deal); Moto G7 Power competitor, probably better in some specs (not difficult: NFC for example), probably worse software support

Do you happen to know if wi-fi calling is supported on this model? I know it may depend on network too.
Attractive phone. They usually suffer with a mammoth chin around this price. Good price

I used this phone on Vodafone and there was a WiFi Calling switch ready and waiting in Settings. Worked perfectly, on Voda anyway.

I would think it is baked into stock Android now. VoFi also works on the cheap A5 Pro.
I've had this phone for about half a year now, I'm very happy with almost every aspect of it, except for the camera. The picture quality is good, but it seems to really struggle to focus, resulting in loads of blurry pictures/videos.

To be honest I would go for a different phone if I was buying again, as personally I feel the camera is one of the main functions of a phone these days. If you aren't too fussed about the camera though I would definitely recommend it. It's very fast, and has a brilliant battery. It usually lasts all day, even with heavy usage of games and web browsing, with the screen brightness set high. It charges very quickly, I'd say it probably charges fully within an hour.

I'd be happy to try and answer any questions about the phone, full disclosure though I'm not the most technically enlightened person around so my knowledge may be quite basic, lol.

Thanks for info,just left vodafone.Thinking of going BT mobile sim only route but restrictions on wi-fi calling from non BT handsets so a bit of a lottery if it works but at least handset is capable of it.Thanks again.

Thanks for the feedback esp regarding fast charge.
Does NFC actually mean anything on this model - does Google Pay and banks support it for payments?

Yep! Don't see why it wouldn't?
Can this be rooted? I'll need to do some research.
Probably not as MTK.

Yes, GooglePay works aok.
I've got the UMIDIGI z2. Nice phone, not as good as this one but credit to UMIDIGI, they are offering some nice handset.
MrSwitch30/09/2019 20:08

because most aren't Google Certified so Safety Net isn't valid which is required for things like Google Pay.

I don't own the phone but I was thinking about getting one and already did the research.Root guide: https://community.umidigi.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=18657It's also Project Treble compatible, so there should be a good selection of custom roms too!https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/psa-project-treble-t3917284


Nice, thank you! Just need to check some reviews on the performance of the chipset.
Isn't it a rarity to find a mediatek phone that can be rooted?

I've had an F1 play for 6 months now with regular updates, probably one a month.
