I had two as emergency spares and for young children to get use to. Paid £18 each. Loaned out several times as emergency temp phone for a few friends who’s phones broke. As stated they are dog slow but ideal for the time you are without. Unlock codes work fine. You could explore rooting knowing that you won’t ruin an expensive phone. As a five pound “toy” / learning / emergency smart phone you really can’t go wrong. I can recommend for £5. Just my opinion and experience. Ypymytyc.

How does it video capture in 720p HD with a 2mp camera???? How does it video capture in 720p HD with a 2mp camera????


A single 720p frame is less than 1mp (720 x 1280 = 921,600 pixels)

I had one of these phones, not for long though. They are absolutely awful, really clunky and have a mind of their own. Mine would dial random numbers whilst it was being carried.

I really could not recommend this phoneat any price!

shouldnt there be an "a" in the middle there?? ypymaytyc.
Ideal for someone who wants a cheap Android device to drive the RM Pluggin for the Broadlink Pro Alexa intergration.
Pain im the back but ideal as spare phones for a day or two. Internet is really slow but if you are using it just to make calls then good one
Store specific. Scanning full price at my local
I have this too bought as a temp phone when my other had an accident with a wall Not bad as does do calls, texting etc but is slow my only gripe was the screen does not do landscape for texting so has a very small area to scribble your texts in but for £5 worth it as temp phone.
Great buy my daughter bought 8 yr old grand daughter this £20 in Asda , she has some games on it but more for contacting her ideal for kids

For £5 for an emergency back up or for children to stay in touch I don't think you can complain too much if it has limitations. Heat from me.

The landscape thing will be a limitation of the SMS app, not the phone...
Chomp SMS (among others) will go landscape for texting.

opera mini browser <might> help. They process all the internet content in the cloud and send you a dummed down version. At the highest compression and lowest quality pictures it gets rid of all flashing stuff and just shows you what you need.

Depend's on the 'timeline'?, lol.

I got a few of the exact same Phone's around April kind of time last year ...

And they cost me only £14.99 each, from Argos - via Argos fast-track I avoided the £10 top-up thing (as did MANY at the time also - hence having the fast-track 'element' mentioned at the time on HUKD, etc?).

And yes, it was also locked to Vodafone, but nothing a 99p Code off of eBay wasn't able to fix? (which it did). :-)

Coma maybe. As a northerner I would always omit the “a”.

Heat added. Difficult to criticise for £5
