    Won't the screen be a bit small to function as a "Smart phone" ?? :o o:.
    My old "not-smart" phone is 66g, and has a removable battery too.
    4G isn't available much away from urbanisation.
    So why would this be a good idea ?? :confuseded::whistling:


    PS…….GPS :thumbsup:

    It's cheap for a phone that has all the latest android functionality, far more useful than a dumb phone. I used to have a Sony Xperia X10 mini many years ago back when android was still on donut, great phone then. Granted I am now joined at the hip to my phablet which is all I use for day to day tasks, only dusting off the pc when I absolutely have to.
    As for 4G I'm sure the UK will catch up some day… probably by the time 5G is the norm

    +1 @cathyjc. Never mind 4g you're lucky to get 2g in the hills.

    I carry a Spot so's my wife can see that I'm moving. No real need for a phone at all, though i still carry my Nokia 2760 - not sure why.

    The one thing that would tempt me into this is the GPS…….then I could leave the 'big' smartphone at home. Only use the GPS for grid references - and that only rarely.

    Android is a big negative for me - I tried an Android phone …….didn't get on with it -awful :(. Every time I logged in they'd "upgraded" and moved the layout around and lost all my settings…...drove me to distraction. Gave it to my teenage son who thinks it's great :whistling:. I am not a techno nerd = keep it simple.

    GPS makes you lazy ;)

    Which is why I rarely use, or need it :angelic:. I begrudge carrying a 'big' smartphone (iPhone SE) to have it :arghh:. I can remember only 3 times I've used the OS grid ref. app.

    If true...the 7 day battery would be a bonus, but this is usually calculated on a radio off basis. I would need to know the true battery life even in 2G with variable coverage.

    My bro gets 7 days battery use out of his Nokia 6210, and he uses it quite a lot.

    If i'm going to carry a phone for GPS use, I want a nice high-res screen to looks at the maps on. What would be useful would be a way of minimising cpu cycles, and a transflective screen for daylight use (remember them?).

    That's not an android phone though. It runs symbian. My Landrover phone lasts for 2 weeks!
