4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money and very fast., 22 Jun. 2015
It's an excellent phone for your money. Not perfect, but until they invent Paul Ross phone covers, nothing is.

The phone is fast to boot up, has been rooted and comes with a customised version of Android 5.0. I've replaced Elephone's stock search/layout with Android, which means I can now 'OK Google' to my heart's content.
It's already received an OTA update but not to Android 5.1. Am sure this won't be far away.

The battery is 2,700, it is removable and there are two SIM sockets plus space for a micro SD card. Not bad.

Some niggles.

The camera gives mixed results and mine is blurred at the edges.

You will need to download many of the core Google programmes from Play, no big hardship, but stuff like a PDF viewer, Drive and Camera all need to be installed.

The Android home/back buttons are swapped round and I have no idea how to change them round.

The battery life is so-so. I can get four hours out of a charge, I can get all day. I can't fathom out why some days' usage is better than others when I do the same things day in day out. At the moment, it's on from around 6.30am and needs a charge by teatime.

It doesn't come with a case - you will need to order one separately.

Call quality can vary, but this could be more reception than anything else.

Definitely value for money.

Packed with Billyfluffs, creative set dressing and wobbly sets, this is everything a slice of 60s Who should resemble.

Occasionally the camera has trouble reading from it and requires a 'reformat', but thankfully nothing lost yet and it's working well. Bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't just pass through this., 26 Sept. 2014
Kate Robbins has an incredible voice, rich, warm and powerful. Nicky also has a great voice but only sings on one track, which is rather a shame.
The songs are beautifully crafted, the arrangements are uncluttered with effective layers of sound and the backing vocals stand out in a good way. The harmonies, jazz-inflected chord progressions and melodic piano make for an album which is very easy to listen to.
The care and passion that went into writing and performing the songs is obvious.
The collaboration would seem to be a fruitful one. Long may it continue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness they're abridged versions, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shorter and it means you get through the whole book more quickly, making it less of a chore.
Would have made it five stars had it included some pictures of Paul Ross, Su Pollard and some kitchen foil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with the display, 9 May 2014

Love the display, but there's some fuzzy logic to the menu and how to access it from the buttons on the side of the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a small office set up, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've got four PCs, a modem and a printer all hooked up into this baby. And it works brilliantly with our machines, apart from the Windows 8 ones that had to be bludgeoned to an inch of their life. Why, oh why oh why oh why did Mircrosoft not learn a single lesson from the Vista debacle?
Whinging aside, this is a neat piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a keyboard and mouse that's wireless, this is a keyboard and mouse that's wireless., 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap and cheerful, it does what it says on the tin. Keys can feel a little flimsy compared to others that I've used but it does what it needs to do and without any fuss and bother.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great wrist rest, mouse pad wrist rest a little small, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't use a mouse without a wrist rest, so bought these for my office staff. They don't use the wrist rests, so think I'm daft. But I love it.
I feel the wrist rest on the mouse pad is a little too short: another couple of inches would have been perfect. That what's she said.
