No microsd slot.


Not an issue for me with the rest of the spec.

Was going to say 204 for lte version from the same retailer. But 150 for non lte is a lot of phone for the money

Yea. I don't get 4g so non issue for me. Understand it's a deal breaker for some...

Just noticed that is is shipped from eu warehouse as well so no import duty or tax makes its even better

fantastic spec. But no sd card means i am out.
I have a Samsung S4....even with the sd slot it irks me with only 16gb internal memory as some of the apps like whatsapp cant be moved to sd card.
with just 16gb on board and no memory card slot is a killer for me......but fantastic specs and superb company.....not voted though.

good spec on this phone, I did want this phone last December, but was about £320 shipping from US

is the battery removable??

Nope

No gorilla glass or micro sd slot is a shame, this phone is known for getting very hot too

If the 16gb OnePlus One was still available I would say go for that instead of this due to support and warranty on all fairness for a extra 30 I would say it worth it.

UMI launch a similar spec phone on 20th July.
UMI IRON 4G LTE 5.5 Inch 3GB RAM MTK6753 1.5GHz Octa-core alloy cased Smartphone.
At £118 a better price and if it gets good reviews maybe worth waiting for.

I would agree but for me 5.5" is just too big for screen size

Will this work with all UK network providers? For example, Three?

The spec says: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz FDD-LTE 1800/2100MHz

Hi, yes the 4G one will

Banned

Junk phone

can it be rooted?

Rooted (but disabled) out of the box, great device. Been drooling over the 64gb 3g version at £200 on ibuygou.com. Never used DX, I think they're legit but there's lots of fake xiaomisfloating around so be careful!

Never heard that name before.
Snapdragon chip set means gps can be used without data connection. Will be handy in places like Scotland

Do you never leave the house/area?

Will probably come full of spyware like my jiayu s3 did.
Vodafone ultra 6, here we come.

Sometimes when I need food and drink. Cornwall isn't the best place for 4g...

Over on tthe Elephone P7000 thread some posters ordered from these guys a few weeks back and never got their phones. Worth having a read of that thread or asking over there.

That's interesting - spyware put you off the Chinese phone.

Yep, have to say that the Vodafone appeals for a variety of reasons - not least that you can return it in the UK if faulty.

It won't work on 4G with O2 as they are 800Mhz only, will it? 4g.co.uk/4g-…ow/ or am I missing something?

The V Ultra 6 does seem good vfm, shame its single sim only, which is why a lot of people look at the China phones. Still running a 2nd Gen Moto G with dual sim (Argos) which still seems to be just as good as anything in its price range.

Avoid like the plague. Bought a P7000 from them from their EU warehouse. Never received it. Currently have a PayPal dispute with them.

What is the best from those:
Xiaomi Mi4
Lenovo K3 Note
or OnePlus One?

Although I have never dealt with DX the P7000 issue is more to do with Elephone than anybody else. There have been thousands of pre-orders and orders not fufilled by re-sellers because Elephone operate in a shady way it would seem. Rumour has it they use the pre order money to pay for the build of the phones which is why people are having to wait upto a month just for the stores to get stock!

Xiaomi though is a safe bet and this was one of the best phones of last year and at this price it is a steal. Shame I just bought the Ulefone Be Touch 2 although I did get it at the special discount price of $179.99 which equated to £115 so I should be ok. Xiaomi will be a big player in the phone industry in the years ahead
