The phone is locked to the Boost/Telstra network so you’ll have to pay an unlock code to use a SIM card from another network in it.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I am going to buy one to use as a music player for when I am in the gym. If anything happens to it, I wouldn’t care.

Did you get one? I wanna know what the sound quality is like. I’m after a new audio player to keep permanently mounted on my bike.


Sorry mate. Didn’t end up buying one as we replaced my son’s HTC One M8 on the weekend due to a camera failure. I am going to use that whilst he plays with his new Galaxy S5.

You’d have to be REALLY low on money to buy this phone.


‘Remote Control’ to run your Netflix on a Chromecast?

These ultra cheap phones can have other uses.
