4.0 out of 5 stars A bargain for Android enthusiasts with great roaming capability., 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this to replace my ageing Nexus 4 and have to say it was a good move. The hardware specification of the phone is excellent and performance reflects this. One important criteria for me was support for a wide variety of 3G / 4G frequencies so I can use this with a second SIM when I travel to the US later this year. This phone supports a far wider range than the majority of imported devices.
Criticism of support from MLAIS is a little harsh. There have been two significant updates since I made my purchase and I now have a stable installation of Lollipop. That said the move from KitKat to Lollipop is fiddly, so if you're not tech savvy you might want to wait until the handset is sold with Lollipop pre-installed. The camera is not bad, screen is big bright and clear, speaker is a little tinny but for £130 it's a steal.
I'd also recommend that you get a tempered glass screen protector and the official case. I picked the two up for less than £10 (total) online.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this for use with a Archos Cobalt 80 tab bought from Tesco on Boxing day. I have to say that, whilst the fit is good, the quality of the case is very poor. The external finish is nothing like the one in the picture (it has a poorly embossed Android logo, not the wording as shown) it's not 'padded' at all and really seems like cardboard with a poor layer of rubbery laminate stuck over it (with bubbles where it's not stuck down properly in places). The internal lining looks more like the picture, but mine was actually torn in one place. The fastening looks like it won't last long. The stitching is all over the place and actually goes off the edge of the case a couple of times.

I can only think that they've replaced this with a different product since the original reviews. I'll certainly be sending it back if the postage is not too expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine for charging and sync, 17 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this tentatively thinking that 'worst case' it would be good as a second cable for charging only. I'm pleased to report that charge and sync works fine, with the plug inserted into the phone either way around. Time will tell on the build quality, but as things stand it's a major bargain at this price!
