After disappointment with my Sony z5c I sent it back and bought this to put me on till Nexus 5x arrives. Cannot fault it except bit to big for me. Does everything even camera results are more acceptable than z5c . On my box it does state it accepts a 128gb card which is great just stuck mine in out of z5c for now.
Nice bright screen always available 3 android touchscreen buttons lit in blue. In fact it could look like iPhone 6 plus if your budget is low and want a lookalike.
How they built all this lot for 125GBP is amazing.It even has NFC because on set up process is said tap to exchange data off other android which is NFC action and yep it has it.Vodafone could be subsidising this I suppose,it even has 3000mA battery. Easy a 400GBP sim free device.
Picked this up 2 weeks ago after my Xperia Z3 screen cracked. Can't say I've noticed any real difference in the quality between the 2 considering the price. Very few complaints and they're only niggly stuff (no proximity sensor for calls etc). For the price you pay, this is an absolute bargain.
Just a heads up, the Android version is 5.02 but the phone runs smoothly and the price product balance is really good. The headset that you receive with the phone is bad quality, I am using my old in ear headset.The GPS runs great, I have installed the latest NFS-NL, Corridor Z, Clash of Clans and Dead Trigger 2 and all are running great. The battery life time is not that great even though it is a 3000 maph. The 4G runs properly and the signal antenna is fine.

No £10 topup is needed if you buy it online. Select keep using my own sim at the bottom and you will be good to go.

i think Vodafone is out of stock. i didn't see it on the shelf.
where is the best place to buy it from which is in stock not paying more then £125.
Have this phone for few days now. Does not get 'hot' but sometime after heavy use, it gets little bit warm around the camera but that is perfectly normal. About the lag, it depends on what mobile phone you had before. If you ask me, this phone does not lag as such. Given the price, its the fastest phone. Even Galaxy s6 lags now and then. I do not have any complains about lagging. Excellent screen. Best battery life i have ever had from any mobile phone. Cameras are surprisingly good. Excellent selfies but in low light, main camera is a bit average. Overall its a great mobile phone. In £99 i have a 13mp autofocus cam, 3000mah battery, 5.5" fhd lcd, 5mp front cam, mem card option. All sounds too good to be true but it is.
Does the phone lag or get very HOT?
And how is the battery life?
I heard its the best budget phone in UK?
excellent value for money better than Iphone 6 not tied to apple .
,lightweight ,big memory ,excellent sound system ,great camera updateable.
over all excellent phone buy it now.
SomeoneFromIreland, 13 Jul 2015Does it have a gyroscope??? can I use it with google cardboard? ThanksNo, it does not have a gyroscope sadly.

It has NFC, USB HOST etc. Screen can be relatively easily scratched. Beautiful phone. Up to 128gb Micro SD. Currently upgradeable to Android 5.0.2.
Their are two colours available, from my voda store. You can unlock device, it seems to be a zte. It is better than iPhone 6 plus, camera by far better. Plus you get NFC, for touch and pay...if voda have sorted that out and not insist on you sticking a tag on their NFC enabled phones??

Andy, 03 Sep 2015thanks, has the LED have only 1 colour (blue) or multicoloured?No there is only one colour
Lags in transitions. Anyone else experiencing it? Otherwise the display is gorgeous. Hope it gets an update to marshmallow.
NZMurray, 11 Aug 2015Brought one through Vodafone NZ where it is not locked to a plan or Vodafone ($299 NZD). Actua... moreI got it from Vodafone NZ too, but it was free on a plan. I'm actually really happy with it. Value for money it's exceptional.
One pleasant thing worth mentioning is that it supports OTG out of the box, so I can mount my USB thumb drives. Makes sharing stuff around a bit easier.
No other phones in this price range with a big display, plenty of power, good battery, lots of storage options AND 4G/LTE.
I was looking at an S6, but for $900 more I couldn't justify the spend just so I can brag about having the most expensive phone. It's a no-brainer. 4.5/5!
If it supported the 700mhz LTE band and had a sturdier build quality I'd give it a 5.
