Currently using mine to respond to your post. Great phone, although I bought mine for 160 euro over a year ago. Can't go wrong for 119 worth it for what you get.

Nice crisp screen- it is a little laggy with some apps- but the killer reason to use this- is the outstanding battery- I easily get 2 days out of it. Providing you accept that its a budget phone and are willing to overlook the fact that it simply doesn't have the horsepower of some more recent handsets- its a remarkable value proposition, with a wonderful battery.

Have one with the past 6 months as a work phone and think it's really good. It's big but not awkward to use. Screen is decent - not as crisp as the likes of the galaxy s8 etc but decent all the same. Camera is good - not top class but not too shabby either. Battery is definitly the biggest plus - charges quite fast and lasts aaages compared to other phones I've owned. Absoloute bargain for 119

Bought for €250 on release for the 4gb version. Phone is suitable for all apps only higher end games will have noticeable slowdowns. The slower processor choice allows much better battery usage I generally have no issue getting 2 days out of it on charge. Excellent custom rom community around this device if your are more technically inclined.
For 120e I'm considering buying a spare phone.

The only reason I use nfc is the rare times I need to get the bus to top up my leap card

Never mind, it's the Note 5 and the non-Note 6 that are the same price.
