I might want a couple more of Ultras in the next month.  Let me know if you see any decent specials from a major retailer.  Would consider secondhand if anybody has decided these models are not for them, but would require proof of purchase if still under warranty.

I think the price of the Galaxy S4 and the nexus 5x when on special at $290 and $350 are good buys but seems prices have gone back up. Will keep an eye on that. Super low last gens in Aus if anyone is traveling.

 

Whats the Ultra priced at now? I think they are good its just real shame they wont uprade to 6.0

I've got a mint ultra about 6 weeks old that I'm considering getting rid of. It was bought as a temp phone for my mum (who was in hospital) while her phone was being repaired. Pm me if you're interested.

Its not getting 6.0 is my understanding, is that correct?



Did Vodafone ever comment on this?

I'm interested in version 6, as it seems to restore the direct save to SD card functions android used to have.

Most camera apps for example can't save direct to the SD card presently.

Semble app was just offered to me! I've had the sim for ages. Is it worth the effort? I wonder if it is accepted in the real world.

Have just installed a dual band 2.4/5Ghz wifi access point and noticed that a Samsung S3 can access both bands, the Smart Ultra can only access the 2.4G.  Is this part of the spec for the Smart Ultra?  Noticed the S3 is a/b/g/n the Smart ultra is b/g/n.

Smart ultra and prime do not have 5GHz WiFi support, unfortunately. Expecting that to be fixed in this year's models.

If you use WhatsApp and find the enter key has disappeared from the keyboard on your smart prime ultra, go into the WhatsApp settings and untick 'Enter is send'...

Does anyone know if this phone will work in the USA and Canada?

 

The 2 Degrees website says it needs to support 850MHz or 1900MHz frequencies.
