EE Harrier and Harrier Mini review

 

EE's Kestrel was its first own-brand 4G smartphone, meant for those wanting breakneck mobile data speeds without breaking the bank. One year on, the Kest

Crisp 720p display ; Good battery life

Bloatware-burdened ; Lacking in memory ; Poor camera ; Sluggish performance

EE's Harrier Mini falls short of expectations. A pleasant display and good battery life don't excuse its lethargic performance, shoddy camera and small storage capacity. With plenty of compelling alternatives in the same price range or cheaper...

EE Harrier review

 

The Harrier smartphone is exclusive to EE and is a well-made device with a good balance of features. The exceptionally large screen is a highlight, as is the access to EE's 4G network and Wi-Fi Calling capability. It's quite expensive for what you get...

EE's press release for the Harrier suggests that it's a bargain phone, rather like last year's Kestrel , which made a great impression on us. Yet on Pay Monthly contracts, the Harrier will cost you upwards of £25 per month on a free upgrade. That's not...

EE Harrier review: Vertical take-off for budget 4G handset - Pocket-lint

 

Cut out the middle man – it's one of the best ways to save money. That's the idea behind the EE Harrier budget 4G smatphone: by getting rid of that Sony,

Bright and sharp screen for the price, decent storage, excellent value for a 4G phone

Its take on Lollipop isn’t 100 per cent speedy, locked to EE, design may turn some off

The EE Harrier is not quite a perfect budget phone, but it's not far from it. Some of you will probably dislike the style; some of its finishing touches feel a bit, well, unfinished; and day-to-day performance isn't 100 per cent perfect.

EE Harrier review

 

A low cost, 5.2-inch full HD handset from Britain's largest mobile network

Big, full HD display ; Affordable 4G ; Almost stock Android Lollipop ; Octa-core processor

Noticeably cheap build ; Average camera quality ; Poor speaker

EE launched its first own-brand smartphone last year named the EE Kestrel. Also bearing an avian name, this handset was a rebrand of the Huawei Ascend G6, and was very much a contender at the low end of the market, baring little other than 4G...

EE Harrier review: 4G and a full-HD screen under £200

 

With 4G and a large full-HD screen under £200 the EE Harrier is good value. But it's difficult to get excited about this phone

At £200 EE's Harrier offers 4G connectivity, a great 5.2in full-HD IPS screen and the promise of Wi-Fi Calling. For many people that will make it an excellent deal. But a number of issues prevented us getting too excited about this smartphone: there's...

EE Harrier

 

The EE Harrier is a formidable entry in EE's second round of branded handsets, landing as a budget 5.2-inch Android smartphone.

Stylish design, great display ; Exceptional performance ; Impressive battery life ; 4G/LTE support

Iffy camera

What wonderful times are these, when you can snaffle a decent 4G ready phone for £150 and under. EE’s Harrier is a solid all-round device and an affordable entertainment machine, offering Full HD gaming and movies on a budget. If you can afford the £50...

Absolute rubbish. Screen locks, it overheats, can't add much to what others have said. Total disappointment. Don't waste your money.
