Argos have always been great for sim free devices and often stock them before they hit retail,sim free is still the best way to go to avoid bloat-ware and to avail of updates before anyone else..BUSH have been around a while now with Argos and they also have some entry level Windows Phones.The name and product has been often scoffed (In Ireland) be it blind judgement. Lets be honest there is no perfect mobile at a perfect price..This device comes in at €209,95 and Dual Sim.

“The first premium smartphone in the exclusive Argos range, with a 16-megapixel camera, Octo-core processor and the latest Android software. This is a must-buy for anyone who can’t be parted from their phone. The slim line design also means it is lightweight and comes complete with gorilla glass meaning it’s more durable than the average smartphone.”

  1. On paper it has excellent specs but only 20mins after using it it froze and since been stuck on Bush start-up logo despite reboot and factory reset.
    Mirco SD card is not detected which must be a hardware issue as both; friends device and my own have encountered.
    Hopefully this will be revolved

  2. Where is the music icon for this phone how do you play your own music or personalize this phone
