Cashback paid out at £40 rather than £50 so all in all cost me around £50 from CPW
Just got one , They had to change it from a contract phone to a PAYG one but all sorted. Only thing thats bugging me is the included headphones. They are a generic black plastic and very cheap unlike my P9 lite ones. Have searched up and they dont seem to be standard when bought unlocked from Huawei. Anyone else have the same pair of headphones ?

Only reason I ask is that I would not be pleased if i was sold a refurbished unit and not told. To be honest the headphones they have given me are awful while Hauweis own are quite good in my opinion.

Phone is on the EMUI 5 with the 1st of January 2018 security patch so very nice. I did find it odd that you have to use the Vodafone sim to get and download the update so might be an issue in future as I plan on unlocking it and giving it to my mother who is on plusnet.

is it good to use as an mp3 player?


If you're wanting it as a multimedia device then yes it will work fine for music. It even has a few audio enhancement tools built in.

If you're going to be using it much with videos as well as music the screen leaves quite a bit to be desired however
shikztheurbanlegend16 h, 54 m ago

will this play pokemon go?


It should run but I'd expect it wouldn't be too smooth or stable, and probably hammer the battery by forcing the phone to give everything it has to try and run.

It's below the system requirements, but I've seen it run on much worse hardware before!
1gb ram is a bad deal because for about £10 more you can get a much quicker phone e.g. wileyfox swift £60 today ish on warehouse?... The saving vs irritation just isn't sensible imho.

More likely just staff who know less about phones than they ought to. I guess the inherent irony of phone shop staff is that many of them have very little interest in the thing they're selling and therefore develop very little knowledge on the subject.
