EE Rook review

 

The EE Rook is possibly the cheapest 4G smartphone on sale. It comes with the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop, and is a smart, compact phone. However, the cost-cutting needed to make the device so cheap is in evidence everywhere, and we can't really...

The EE Rook does what it claims - provides a very cheap 4G smartphone option. The market demand for cheap smartphones ia huge, and if you're buying one, then 4G must be a bonus.

EE Rook

 

The EE Rook is an entry-level smartphone from the UK's biggest network provider, and the cheapest 4G handset we've ever seen.

4G support ; Incredibly cheap ; Android Lollipop

Poor screen ; Bad camera ; Thick, stumpy build

EE Rook review

 

EE ups the price wars with a 4-inch 4G handset for just £49

Nippy processor ; Reasonable screen resolution ; Latest stock Android

Awful camera quality ; Poor inbuilt speaker ; Terrible viewing angles

Old-hat screen technology, poor speaker and camera aside, there certainly are positives to be found in the Rook, and (with help from ZTE), EE has crammed in as much tech as is feasible for a tiny price.

4G ; Crazy cheap ; Decent second handset

Poor screen for media ; Very basic camera

If you need a super-cheap phone for a younger relative or to replace your usual handset, and your priority is nippy web browsing, then the EE Rook is a solid choice. The basic processor handles everyday running without too much of a struggle and the...

EE Rook review

 

Affordable, but worth buying?

If you don't mind the basic design, the EE Rook isn't a bad little phone at all. We can hardly argue with the price of £39 for existing customers and the performance is better than we expected for a sub-£50 phone. It's mainly the miserable viewing...

EE Rook

 

I think they have tried to cram too much into a budget smartphone, they would have done better just having 3G technology instead of 4G and looking at better batterys instead. Don't get me Wong its alright if it's a first or second smartphone or if your...
