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!

Minu, 6 hours agoSurprisingly there are much cheaper Nokia phones offering much better specs for the same price… moretrue

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.

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 as you don’t turn them into a playstation🤣🤣

IpsDisplay, 17 hours agoPeople 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 person who saved up for 2 years.. This, is beyond saving. Firstly, don’t buy. Why? Simply because I 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, 17 hours agoPeople are going through it in life That 20 to 30 could mean no bus fare, or missing a meal… moreYou are better off getting a 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 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, 17 hours agothis gotta be the worst attempt at a strawman i’ve ever seenSo, just another mobile phone connoisseur 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
