If you're looking for a budget phone - this one is pretty decent. But remember it's budget so don't expect the best performance in the world from it.

Decent spare phone / phone for the kids or older parents etc.

Only issue with this deal is... lightinthebox.com

If you do take the risk; the lightinthebox coupons page has a £2.38 off voucher which can be applied to this. ( code 2017CMONDAY1 )Code doesn't work on the phone. 10% topcashback tracking may work.

Be aware that shipping costs are added. If you go for free shipping you get no insurance and no tracking. £69.64 is the cheapest if you want customs insurance and tracking. (9-12 business days)

Insurance is their problem if it doesn’t turn up isn’t it?

great price, especially for 32gb version.

Ordered an item from light in the box in September, it still hasn't come. Got to wait 2 months while they "investigate". Won't give a refund till then.

Insurance for duty costs. If you get charged, they cover it.

Didn't you pay using PayPal?? You should easily get money back through PayPal.

I ordered this phone on Black Friday for £67.83 from LITB so great price and some heat. Just proves what a farce BF is though with sites inflating prices so they can reduce them again.

Phone was dispatched yesterday/ today so a reasonable turnaround. I paid for shipping insurance which added an extra £1.59 to the order. I also went for snail mail shipping which hopefully will avoid the dreaded customs.

Tracking seems to be spot on and much better than other companies I've used. I'm quite happy with the way things have went so far with this company. I expect a 2-3 week wait before the phone arrives.

This was for my missus who won't have a clue on specs.

Topcashback tracking 10.5% for me. Whether it pays or not is another question. It said quick tracking.

Bought one to replace my 65 year old mums crappy Windows phone which confuses her and me.

Excellent post and hits the nail on the head.

SAR value for a under 16 year old, tick.

inexpensive if / dropped, school friend runs off with it, tick.

spare phone, tick.

daily driver, NO

Brilliant deal. Whilst the specs aren't going to set the world alight for the cost, you will find it very hard to beat. I have had the Xiaomi Redmi note 4 64gb, 3gb RAM and love it. This is for my wife for Christmas. 65 squid for a decent entry level phone with good reviews.

Don't forget to add the fiver cost for a tempered glass screen and a case

Happy to see someone posted this. I had commented (https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/32578789) but I swore never to post deals after abusive messages.

Save yourself a fiver as it won't help. They just lose it or put it in the wash, or drop it down a well, or lose it in a wager or, "what phone?" Or ... You get the idea.
Buy a zorb and put it inside that. That should give it a few weeks longevity.

Chinese bric-a-brac.
You could buy the G5 for £90 a few days ago. Arrived right away, worry free, you don't like it you send it back or they replace it for you in no time. Plus your dealing with a big UK company. 2 years warranty too.
I wouldn't waste my time and money on this Cr....ap when there are alternatives like that.

And Lenovo are what? British? And you've written "You could buy" but also it, "Arrived right away" - what tense is this?

At least Xiaomi devices don't have bootloop issues which now comprise a class action against LG.

It's interesting how some of us still diss Chinese companies when approximately 40% of everything we use is made in China. Hell there was someone saying the other day that they would buy a laptop made by Lenovo over other brands as it's not Chinese

Can you download Android apps on these phones?

Yes, it's no different from one you would buy here. It's the phone I use every day, had it about 4 months. I got a mofi case for it, it's got a full surround, for protection, better than the hard plastic surrounds. m.aliexpress.com/s/i…tml

I buy Chinese product as there's nothing else really but dealing with a Company based in that country can be a lot of hassle...it's a big problem that we depend on them so much but that's a different discussion.
Last time I bought a product that was faulty and they asked me to record a video of it and send it over.. what??
They must be joking..I want them to deal with their faulty product..I need none of that kind of nonsense!

Sorry to point this out being the grammar police, but it is either "you are" or "you're" not "your". We have a great language so let us use it properly.

This or the ZTE Axon 7 MINI for £107 on HUKD?

This or the ZTE Axon 7 MINI for £107 on HUKD?


Axon 7 mini for Snapdragon 617, AMOLED screen, 3GB RAM etc. The hardware is almost flagship level.
For updates however, I'd go with this. Xiaomi update their phones for years after release, it's a part of their strategy to sell the same hardware for an extended period and capitalise on falling component and assembly costs. ZTE are notorious for slow or nonexistent updates.

Euh, grammar Nazis. Do you correct people who mispronounce words too? Yeah, thought so. Some people are dyslexic. Do you make fun of deaf people? Get over yourself, there's no ego trip to be had here.

This was a "lightning deal" which has since expired. I commented about this deal some time earlier, before it was posted as a deal, because I have sworn to never post deals again after receiving abuse. Sorry to those decent people who would have bought had it reached a higher temp sooner. This is now an old phone and will be sub 60 on similar deals. in the New Year.

How do you know they're dyslexic?

AgentDaleCooper19 m ago

How do you know they're dyslexic?


I don't, and I didn't say they were dyslexic either. I said "some people are dyslexic". This is the point, when someone belittles someone about the way they write, how do they know whether or not that person has some disability that may affect the way they write?

Regardless, no one should be made to feel ashamed of how they communicate - learning disability or not.

PS. I didn't call you out on what you said, because you were just stating that you didn't understand what he wrote, which is fair enough

There is nothing in my post that should have made you jump to that conclusion.

It's a budget phone. It'll give same performance as other budget phones. Specs make it look high end. It's not. It will lag at times.

Actually, Dale wasn’t belittling anyone, I was. But I wasn’t belittling Andreas BECAUSE of the way he writes (that was just the instrument), I was belittling him because he was being an a&&$#@!. Being illiterate is no excuse for that.
