A 4G phone that costs £39? EE has one for you

Within hours of Three announcing a new 8GB data plan that they claim would suit your monthly browsing needs, EE have now come up with a super cheap £39 4G smartphone that comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop infrastructure and a 1,500 mAh battery.

If you don't have an EE connection, you'll have to shell out £49 for this device.

Named EE Rook, the new phone will bring in all the pleasures of a modern day smartphone, albeit on a lower level. The 4-inch display has a resolution of 480x800 pixels and the phone has an internal storage of 8GB that can be expanded through an additional microSD slot. The primary camera has a workable 5MP resolution and the front camera at 0.3MP can help out with your Skype calls.

The Rook runs on a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor which should allow new apps to be downloaded and used at CAT4 LTE speeds. However, the 1GB RAM may not be enough to run several apps or programmes at the same time.

Available only in black, EE Rook is available for both Pay Monthly and Pay As You Go customers. If you want to Pay As You Go, you can get two £10 top up options. The £10 Everything Pack will give you 150 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data while the £10 Data Pack will give you 50 minutes, 50 texts and 1GB data for a month.
