I'm minted, you get what you pay for with a few exceptions in life. Don't get me wrong the Y56O certainly represents great value for money and you can pick it up at a bargain price, but compare it to something like the new Samsung S6 edge or even the older S6 edge, they are worlds apart, the S6 edge for example came out just over 2 years ago and can handle latest nougat OP, the display is 4K, its encased in luxurious gorilla 4 glass (back and front) a sheer delight to hold in the hand, WoW and as I said its over 2 years old. I would argue you get what you pay for.

Then the mobile vendors will either drop their HUGE prices or stop selling mobiles that cost R10000 - R12000 for a phone (which is a rip off for such a small device).
Terence, 24 Jan 2016WOW! great phone!That's why I rather buy huawei
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2016Where can I find a punk huawei y560? Does anyone knowThe Y560 display might not be the best, but honestly you only notice it if you play games or view pictures, for everyday usage, you won't need an HD display anyways.

There is people who are able to reload operating system with custom rom (and the phone responds faster and not bricked), but it's not for the average user out there, also don't download custom rom from any website, you might regret it.

Instead of paying R15000 for a phone, I'd pay R10000 for a laptop, and R5000 for a 40" Samsung TV, don't you agree. The max I'd pay for a mobile phone is R2500 (being fussy), else R1200.

This happens due to new models coming out every few months. It's just like with cars, only the rate at which phone models are replaced is much faster.

Perhaps your battery has an issue, who knows. Perhaps the heavy usage of games has hammered your battery. Remove your battery, clean the metal contacts on phone and battery with dry - clean cloth, put back battery and try. If it takes 1-2 hours to charge, disconnect charger after 2 hours, don't leave your phone connected to battery charger for hours, unless you want to toast your battery (this applies to all mobile / cell - phones).

Guys i need help, i lost my phone today and it is still ringing, can you please help and trace it please guys
Forgot to get a case for it the first day, dropped it the first day, got marks on the plastic casing. I've dropped this phone a thousand times it seems... screen has never cracked, but chunks have been taken out of the sides of it and the back casing tends to fly off. Despite that, the phone works perfectly. I think the fact that it's so light weight, plastic and easily falls apart is actually what keeps its from breaking internally when it hits the ground and flies apart. I use it as my make-shift internet service provider, and as that I use about 90GB a month on the free plan as a hot spot to my laptops... it works great. It's better in the country side as there are less people per tower, but it still works most of the time in the city. That said, I live on a hill. Ask a friend what service provider they have and see if they get signal at your house before you buy.
