I think perhaps if you buy this Pay As You Go in person from a Three store you get a better deal. I got it including the £10 for £100 from Oxford Circus Three store.

The downsides to this phone are definitely the resistive screen, its size and the camera.

However, I have to say, for a phone that costs half the price of an HTC Wildfire, and has Android 2.1, I am extremely pleased for this £100 price. The phone does so much for literally, so little! Definitely glad I bought it.

The Wildfire is a classy phone, but having said that, with all the factors included, I think this is the ultimate budget smartphone.

Don't think its too ugly though. :P

It's good to see TR review more and more budget products make it on to TR. Not sure I agree with your definition of a smartphone though, jsg. Surely at that point everything bar handsets for the elderly become smartphones. Don't we have to start restricting the label for things like the Droid and the Evo. Then again, I refrained from including the original 2G iPhone in that category.

Yeah, I agree that the term "smartphone" is getting more diluted as time goes on. But compared to my last phone, (Sony Ericsson W800i) this is! :) Although I'm sure there will come a point where we'll be calling things like the upcoming HTC HD Ace smartphones and remove the label for things like the Wildfire.

WOW just WOW / The biggest bang i have seen for my buck.

I have not yet seen a phone with soo many features at this price.

Phone feel it bit cheap and 'plasticky' but looks great and u can over come the feel when u start using it, as u will be so involved in using it u wont know what it feels like :P

but of course there is a down side to all these features which is battery life. It is decent but it could be better, having said that I do use the phone almost 5 to 6 hours continuously on skype or web browsing. But keep an eye on killing apps u r not using using the app killer on androids and also turing off Sync, GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth, and not having it on full bright indoors, etc.

Also one down side was that you can not download skype using the official skype website. you must use 3 (if in UK). And because of this you can not use skype on Wifi only on the 3g network u can. (i think this is because 3 only want u to use them for skype when on their phones)

But the phone is excellent, i don't think u can get a better phone then this unless u spend a little bit more and get the HTC WildFire.
