    Everything's on the Argos website, cheap and cheerful better than some of the horrible android devices out there at similar prices. Phones ideal for a kid I suppose but the Lumia 530 offers a better deal. Tablet is ok with HD display and probably offers better value than some but it's more setup for market penetration. Just depends how the uk buyers welcome it.

    Thanks, saw most of that on their website, but was wandering what processor the phone ran, all it said was snap dragon, and the camera pixels looks like it could just be describing a front camera from looking at the picture and also dual sim?

    Personally I have a lot of display trouble with bush tvs so I wouldn't go for it personally. Go to Argos and get a ticket to view the item and get a good hands on feel for it

    The phone reports itself as an Archos - Bush device. It is, indeed, the same as the Archos 40 Cesium device and the Blu Win Jr. I picked one up today, and it's not a bad device at all, and the Dual Sim feature is welcome.

    However, the phone doesn't explicitly report what version of 8.1 it's running. There's a version number that turns out to be Cyan. Cortana is not on the phone, and no updates to Denim are available.

    I'm hoping there will be, but have a feeling that Bush/Archos/Argos really won't trouble themselves with the update.

    Pleasantly surprised by this little phone, brought it 2nd hand from someone who couldn't get on with windows and went back to Android. I wanted to try a Windows phone before my contract runs out in March when I was considering a Lumia. I would prefer a slightly bigger phone but thats probably because my S3 is bigger and I was used to that but to be honest its not much slower that the S3 , the pics are about the same quality (5mp I think ), I'm loving the Windows system on it and the dual sim + sd card slot is a great idea. I really wasn't expecting much from this phone but now I think I might just keep it and get a rolling contract. Not sure I would gain much by changing it for a Nokia.
