Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive smartphone As an iOS user, I needed an Android smartphone for my wife to apply for Settled Status using the Government app. The A1X performed perfectly; app downloaded & installed swiftly, scanning, photo & NFC operations all worked first time. Highly recommended not just for Settled Status use but as a smartphone per se. I'm still trying to find anything iOS does that this doesn't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance This phone has been a delight to use, it runs very smoothly and the dual camera is a great feature. The screen is large but the phone is not bulky, I am so impressed I am going to buy one for my partner too.
