    Not seen this smartphone in the UK yet
    Next time I go too Tesco I be able too say either way
    If available or not

    The UK market got rather weak offerings so 80 pound with 2gb ram & 16 storage

    It will beat most of its competitors that you can buy in a shop in the UK

    The Nokia c01 plus is horrible £75
    Alcatel 1 poor phone £60
    Alcatel 1b is the one too beat £80

    Probably a second best too the Alcatel 1b 2022

                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.

                            CompactPhones5ever, 18 Nov 2022Did anyone else notice how HORRIBLY is that phone photoshop... moreif their face unlock feature can be defeated by a photo, they shouldnt use that.

                              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🤣🤣

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.

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 ...
