    Moto G2 (dual sim)
  1. As of Monday, 11 July, the OnePlus 3 price will go up from £309 to £329 as a consequence of Brexit's affect on sterling. You can read further here
  2. Ha, ha. So you changed your mind about the OP3 - was price a factor? I can't afford the Honor 5C just now and even though my bank is not participating in Android pay yet, it will be an upgrade of the Moto G2. I have changed my mind about buying from 3UK as I don't fancy the song and dance should anything go wrong. Buying online means that I can just send back the handset and request a replacement or refund.
  3. The UK version definitely has NFC as this the main reason for my getting this phone. It does not, however, have fingerprint ID. I don't use gyroscope or compass - are they google apps - but this guide written by Paul on getting the stock Android look does mention Compass, although I am not sure in what context. The guide may have the answers you need.
  4. I agree that the Honor 5C is in a different league from the entry level Wileyfox, but when your old skool mobile finally dies, the Wileyfox will seem so advanced. Ironically, you could have bought an early Nokia (scroll down the page) for the price of the brand new Honor 5C.
  5. Not in this day and age. I have discovered that I need something with more storage than the 8GB of my Moto G2. My next phone will be the Honor 5C. I don't favour the removable sd card as they are prone to failure without warning - I lost all my photos, but luckily most of them had been copied to my computer. However, for some people price and looks will be the determining factor especially for those moving to a 'smartphone' from a basic handset.
  6. The top of the line Wileyfox SparkX is cheaper than the Honor 5C and bigger too, but the deal breaker is NFC - no NFC, no Android Pay.
  7. I await the reveal with interest. I am still inclined towards the Honor 5C, but like the concept of Wileyfox. There are some must haves and provided they are included, then price will be the deciding factor.
  8. I have had a look at the specs of the OP3 and note the presence of NFC as well as a fingerprint sensor. Do you know for certain that this model complies with google certification and that Android pay will be possible? Just discovered that the OP3 is twice the price of the Honor 5C, so no sale. I have done with 'expensive' handsets.
  9. Thanks for this useful guide. I predict that I shall be doing quite a few tweaks, the first of which will be to add an aftermarket launcher. I am currently favouring Apex having finally ditched the increasingly bloated Go a while back. I have a nice little suite of apps and hope to continue using them. I also use the excellent DCikonZ packs to change the look of any icon I don't like. I am stupidly excited about this phone and have to sit on my hands to stop myself from ordering it NOW.
  10. I have posted the manual on the 'News' page.
  11. I have downloaded the user manual and have been flicking through it. There is mention of fingerprint ID, but warns it 'may not be available on all phones'. No mention of NFC, but it's probably in settings. The handset has built in call/message blocking called 'harassment filter', so I can ditch my third party app (still running 4.4.4 so don't know what the latest update has to offer). On paper, the Honor 5C looks like a great budget phone with all the features user such as me want - dual sim/NFC/call blocking - and a reasonable battery life. Bloatware continues to be a nuisance, so I will remove all that I can and install the Alex launcher. If I were a budget handset manufacturer, I would take note.
  12. NFC and DUAL SIM. The search may be over for an inexpensive phone that I can use in conjunction with Android pay and my two sims. I read that Wileyfox is about to launch a new handset and was hoping against hope that it will have NFC. Well I don't need to bother now.
  13. Android pay has now arrived in the UK, but I find myself without a handset with NFC or a participating bank. Eventually my bank will come around, but finding a dual sim phone with with the NFC chip might be another matter.
  14. Not much of a resale market for this, I wouldn't have thought. Nice looking phone, though.
  15. I have exported my contacts to .vcf and was able to bring them back using a file explorer why my address book went AWOL.
