Has two cartridges tricolour and black, so at least you can change black separately, and printing colour should use the different colour inks roughly equally. You have to do the maths I suppose, to come to a conclusion. But it seems that for everyday use, if you are printing mainly photos, the instantink service is the way to go, even at full price. There are still offers with instantink free months or credit.
This or a canon mg5750 ? Doesn't this use a tricolour cartridge, meaning if you run out of one colour (after free ink is over), you need a whole new cartridge? I've missed the instant ink deal and have no intention of deliberately adding to landfill by replacing a printer every time I need to replace cartridges.
You may be able to direct the printer to use your phone as a hotspot. I'm no expert on that. It may be different on different phones and phone operating systems. During setup when it asks for the wifi you may be able to direct to your phone's hotspot. Someone else, more technologically savvy, may know more. Regards and best of luck!
Need help- can I use my three network data to use to print wirelessly instead of WiFi?
I registered on 7th June and got 14 months free ink (party)
