    Obviously a re-branded by Bush so difficult to get any reviews.
    I have a near identical spec phone a Cubot X15 same price and gets very good reviews one of the best of the cheap Chinese phones. I would spend my cash on a Cubot rather than an unknown quantity.

    Pretty much the standard unbranded Chinese phone but branded Bush.

    Look on ebay, you'll find the same cheaper, I think.

    It looks very similar to my UMI Hammer which I took a gamble on and it's worked a treat, apart from poor GPS because of it's metal frame.

    Or you could pay Apple about six times as much.

    I liked the Hammer that I bought apart from the GPS which was the reason that it returned it. Looking for another 5.5 inch dual sim + SD card phone with better GPS than the Hammer.

    At this price point I'd be looking at getting a Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 [£99]
    It gets excellent reviews being pretty much the best of the budget smartphones and quite competitive with all but the latest high end models.
    It can be 'unlocked' via eBay for about £1.69 in just a couple of hours.

    With hindsight I should have done but I didn't test the GPS soon enough. Apart from that I can't fault it.

    The only other problem I had was with the rear camera lens cover - it broke after a week. I've never had one break before. Amazon were very good at accepting the return.

    I spent a lot of yesterday looking online for a similar type of phone and I am really considering getting one of these. Only negative I can see is that the camera isn't brilliant, but that wouldn't be the reason for me wanting one. Any thoughts?



    (By the way, 1st post - and I would never have thought that it would concern a phone!)

    Hmm! My link isn't showing in my post above, I'll have to work on this posting malarkey! Anyway, the phone is on Amazon, a Ulefone Be Pro 2, £84.99.

    showing ok now, they all appear to be the same phone, loads on eBay, don't know whether to go for one or not, it would only be a second phone to use as a small tablet in France on the normal 3 , 321 sim, as well as my o2 , so if they work ok , should be pretty sure of a signal for data and wouldn't have the tethering problem with 3 but if they are no good it defeats the object a bit.

    Must admit I am tempted by the Argos one simply for the ease of returning, only 4 mile away , save all the posting malarkey (y)

    It didn't show on my laptop UNTIL I temporarily turned off Adguard, then it came up OK complete with a picture. (Windows 10 and MS Edge.)

    MotorhomeFun is not about motorhomes, they are just tin tents, but motorhomers real people with many real questions.
