Meanwhile also available at Tesco Right now, Alcatel 1 with practically identical specs for £40…. ummm yeah

No doubt this phone will be met with derision on here . It’s clearly a phone for people you just aren’t bothered about their phones and just want something basic.
That will be a complete pile of plop, small battery on Android 12 why on earth did they not put a skimmed down Android Go version on this would run better!
well, it has the unisoc sc9832e, which uses ancient cortex a53 cores from 2012. not to mention its fabricated on 28nm process. couple that with the 2500 mah battery, and you’re going to have a phone that will lag and stutter doing basically any task, as well as suck in the battery department
if people recommend this phone, its simply because it is a smartphone that exists and can be bought for £80. the fact of the matter is that if you are so poor that this is your only option for a smartphone, and buying something even slightly more expensive means missing out on food, then you simlpy shouldn’t buy a smartphone
What year is this? With these specs, you can easily time travel to 2011 when opening apps took forever
Redmi 10 which is regularly on sale for £15-£20 more is a much better buy.
Zygosepalum, Nov 17, 2022if you don’t have a phone and you are so strapped for cash that you are considering this … moreSurprisingly there are much cheaper Nokia phones offering much better specs for the same price. No hate but I wonder how this phone would perform in real life usage

Did anyone else notice how HORRIBLY is that phone photoshopped into the woman’s hands in the photo? LOL
Also I’m pretty sure that “face unlock” will be 100% secure and totally not “unlock by any human-resembling face”. btw. what kind of unholy retribution is a “VGA unit”? Is that just 0.3 MP sensor with no special purpose? Like, it has one bad camera and one horrible camera?
for that £80 price (1.49M IDR) i’d rather just buy oppo a3s or redmi note 4 in used conditions. but a bit sluggish as long you dont turn them into a playstation🤣🤣
Success Nsorzy, 17 Nov 2022more like, hey if u want a phone that will lag n annoy u.. am here? 🙄Only if it’s the ‘Android go’ version, then this phone will be usable.
IpsDisplay, 18 Nov 2022People are going through it in life That 20 to 30 could mean no bus fare, or missing a meal… moreThis is serious and although I do agree, the human who saved up 2 years for.. This, is beyond saving. Firstly, don’t buy. Why? Simply because can’t afford it. And if there’s a mighty compulsion to buy, then let them look at something like previous gen Redmis or Realmes (can get new, most are better anyway) or some good deals on devices like LG G8x, S8, Mate 20 etc. rather than this new steaming pile. To sum it up, that’s an irrational argument you’ve presented.
IpsDisplay, 18 Nov 2022People are going through it in life That 20 to 30 could mean no bus fare, or missing a meal… moreYou are better off getting an used phone, then. I mean, if you are so short on money, any old device like a Note 4 or S5 could work for you, if its mostly calls and basic stuff like that
What an out of the blue article.. is this a paid article?
Anyways … If £80 is the budget then I’d go for a blackview, cubot or oukitel
Those are the “premium” entry entry level brands
Oukitel you get top tier batteries they make there own batteries and even sell portable power generators
Blackview have decent enough quality control
And cubot has the most polished software optimization even getting a proper GMS cert
But give up on camera quality no chance…
Zygosepalum, Nov 18, 2022this gotta be the worst attempt at a strawman i’ve ever seenSo, just another mobile phone connoiseur who cannot stand the thought that somewhere there is someone making phone calls on a phone that did not cost €1000 or more.
That 20 to 30 could mean no bus fare, or missing a meal some people are feeding families of 6 or more on 3 dollars
Some folks just have £80 and nothing more it might have taken them a year or two just to save that up
