It's getting a little long in the tooth now but these are still pretty amazing specs for the price, and this is a phone that got universally good reviews when it came out.

Price is for the white model, which is good, as the cheapest prices for import phones are usually on the golden model which I'm generally not that keen on.

I know it was a couple of quid cheaper in a flash deal a fortnight ago but I seem to have lost the keys to my Delorean X)

No Band 20/800 mHz but other than that nothing to moan about in these spec.

Sam I love waiting for your comments. Despite wind, rain and snow your constructive and forthright opinions are much more reliable than public transport.

I'm on Vodafone, which does use B20/800 mHz as part of their 4G offering, and I never have any problems with my Redmi 3S which is lacking these bands. In daily use I wouldn't even notice that B20 was not supported.

Please feel free to share any deals to Snapdragon 820 series phones for less than £200 as I'm sure they will catch fire

​You won't even know the difference. The best part of snapdragon 820 is cat 12 X12 modem with carrier aggregation . If you want to live with 3g data speeds from 5 years ago, no one can help you.

XDA is working on unlocking these bands so I think one day we'll have support

Not everyone is, or has the pointless needs of a 12 year old and needs to have 4g to play some mindless game. Some of us, maybe most us, are adults and just need a phone to be a phone with occasional access to websites and email.

If you mean you don't like the spec of a phone, that's your opinion and you're entitled to it. Just don't try to force that view on other people. . .

Why don't you sell this Chinese rubbish from a Chinese seller made only to work in China, in China ​and not here.

Me? I don't sell anything, just give advice.

You have so much anger, you should go and see someone, it's not doing you any good. There are lists of good councilors online.

​Yes I am angry as I got duped here by buying a Chinese phone highly recommended here, came with viruses. It was a nightmare to return it. I just feel sorry for people buying Chinese phones not compatible with UK networks as recommended here or having viruses and root kits in firmware which cannot be easily detected or removed . There are much better choices at this price with all UK bands from EU sellers.

You're seriously like a broken record who repeats the same old bias views every thread. Mind disputing the points made in this comment? Or will you just continue to ignore all points anyone makes against your 'opinions' and continue to whine about the same old stuff whilst being blind to the fact people in UK use mobiles with lack of B20 perfectly fine as fully functioning phones?
