EE claim to have the cheapest 4G phone in the Rook
EE is boldly claiming to have the cheapest 4G smartphone around, with the EE Rook. How much is cheap? Well, if you're an existing EE customer, you can get it for £39. If you're not, then it'll be a piddling £49.
As this is a PAYG phone, you'll have to top-up with £10 too, but still, that is very reasonable and would be a good present for a child in need of a cheap phone, or nana who doesn't want to fork out too much.
Naturally, at this price, the spec isn't going to trouble anyone who has an iPhone or a Galaxy, but that was never going to be the case.
As well as being able to go online and all that, you'll get a handset that has a 4in screen driven by a 1GHz quad-core processor, with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It runs on Android 5.1 and has a five megapixel camera.
Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices at EE, commented: “The new Rook from EE provides a great 4G smartphone at a compelling price – allowing even more people to enjoy the benefits of our superfast mobile network from high speed web browsing and downloads to gaming and streaming.”
