Obi Worldphone MV1


It's not uncommon to see companies introducing new phone ranges. But when Apple's ex-CEO John Sculley burst onto the scene last year, launching two phones, pretty much the whole tech industry paid attention to him.

Obi MV1 review


Obi one for the UK

The MV1 doesn't achieve all Obi claims to have done. It wants to have changed phone design forever, but instead it just looks different for the sake of looking different. It may be cheap, but it's not exciting.

Obi Worldphone MV1 review


Backed by ex-Apple CEO John Sculley and designed by the company responsible for Beats headphones, this budget smartphone wants to appeal to young professionals. With dual-SIM slots and a customised version of Android, here's our Obi Worldphone MV1 review.

For all its flaws, the MV1 is one of the cheapest dual-SIM phones that supports 4G. Performance is lacking, as is screen brightness, but in many respects this is a capable phone. The design may not appeal to everyone, and if it doesn’t and you don’t...

Obi Worldphone MV1 review - stunning design on a budget


Obi's Worldphone MV1 is beautifully designed for a budget smartphone, but its specs and camera can't live up to the Moto G

There's a lot to like about the Obi Wonderphone MV1, as its head-turning design punches well above its weight and its screen is just as good as its Moto G rival. However, in terms of value for money, the 3rd Gen Moto G still wins hands down, as it's...

Obi MV1 Review: In Depth


Obi Worldphone MV1 4G Review: Boasting the latest Cyanogen OS, this value phone is Obi's first entry into the UK market. Here's our full Obi MV1 review.

Funky (but chunky) design ; Decent battery life ; Respectable camera

Limited performance ; Muted screen

The Obi MV1 is another solid budget Cyanogen handset, like the Wileyfox before it, with the benefits of a funky (yet chunky) design, strong battery life and a decent 8-megapixel camera. Performance is rather limited and the 5-inch screen isn’t exactly...

Obi MV1 SmartPhone


While top of the range SmartPhones are in the middle hundreds there are a few ‘more basic’ offerings often with older operating systems that are available for say £50. So what can you expect to get for well under one hundred pounds?

The Obi MV1 is available in , and remember this is sold SIM free.

Obi MV1 Worldphone – Review


Meet the OBi MV1 Worldphone "Obi who?" Good question. They are a Silicon Valley smartphone manufacturer founded in 2014 by former Apple Inc and Pepsi CEO John Sculley. Obi Worldphone manufactures smartphones aimed at the emerging markets, rather than...

The Obi MV1 Worldphone is currently available from Amazon for £99. This puts in direct competition with a number of other smartphones – the Wiley Fox Swift, Moto E and some Vodafone handsets. All of which are respectable low/mid range smartphones. But...

Review: Obi Worldphone MV1 – Great looking phone under £100!


Obi is a brand that has bit of a story behind it. Started by former Apple CEO John Sculley, the company has a few smartphone offerings. All of those are[...]

It would be unfair to compare this phone to anything that costs in triple figures. As such, for a phone that costs only £99, it is amazing. More so, it also offers the traveller or business man a handy phone with its Dual SIM capabilities, at very...

Obi Worldphone MV1 review


This Android phone from an ex-Apple CEO is rotten at its core

Cheap; Eye-catching appearance; Dual SIM

Sluggish performance and responsiveness; Shoddy camera

A potentially great budget phone hampered by poor internal engineering and component choices
