Hisense A5

Looks to be close to ideal. Will definitely pick one up if the price is reasonable.

Even though I already have the Hisense A2 Pro, and although I'm quite fond of it, I find the colour screen a bit of a nuisance. Would much rather have a single screen device.

Wow, thank you everyone for all the information. This seems like a very nice phone. No more astigmatism.

Can it be used in the United States on carriers like Xfinity Mobile, T-mobile, Verizon etc.?

Uhm,
I'm totally skeptical about the 100 euro prize and the 'deluded' buyers of K1 got it for 250 euro, not 350.
Let's hope Hisense can sell it through amazon european stores.

K1 hardware is nice, i'm pleased about, as for the software..can be somehow arranged/hacked into a smartphone experience.

I'd certainly buy an A5 if it has a retail price around €100 (+VAT) on launch. But I really don't see how they can manage that.

New price!

There are two versions: one with 32Gb rom at 155€, and another with 64Gb rom at 195€

The only thing I don't like about that phone is not having a better camera. Even only having a eInk screen we would like to do good photos

Translated launch article

Translated listing at jd.com


1199 yuan for 32GN storage, 1499 for 64GB storage.

With VAT, that's around £160 for the cheaper version.

Clearly more than originally suggested, but still a very good price. If it becomes available in the UK I think I'll be getting one.

I would most def try the H5 if it were for sale in Europe, as it's so much more handy to buy them from a local distributor, so you could return it in case the phone, for some reason, falls short of expectations. I don't know if any Hisense e-ink phone has been for sale in Europe previously, though rumor has it the new ones might.

They'll prolly not reply, but I wrote them. Asking if it'll be released in Europe or America. Both the A5 and A6L looks promising, promising indeed.

There's a new pretty detailed video of the A5, don't know if anyone else linked it anywhere here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9mWonYybeU
