• Nuu Mobile A1: Pure Budget Mobility

    By Josh Bethell , October 31, 2017 - Leave a comment


    Smartphones are a huge global market, with several manufacturers and brands vying for attention. You’d be forgiven for thinking there wasn’t space left for any more! Agile companies will always look for a niche though and Nuu Mobile are just that.

    The A1 is Nuu Mobile’s cheapest handset. At an incredibly low £46 it does have to remove LTE connectivity, yet still provides a full smart experience.

    Cheap doesn’t have to mean poor quality though. Mobile specifications have plateaued in the past couple of years. Components which used to grace much more expensive devices are now available at the lower end of the market.

    Capitalising on this, Nuu Mobile have a range of easily accessible mobiles to suit even the most budget-conscious buyer.

    Great for new users or fleet purchases

    The Nuu Mobile range are unlikely to win awards or receive glowing reviews in big name tech magazines. That’s not what they’re hoping to achieve though.

    Nuu Mobile’s philosophy is to present the most affordable options in an increasingly saturated market. If you simply want a modern, connected device at the lowest possible price, then Nuu Mobile should have the phone for you.

    The A1 still runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so you can install fairly modern apps. A lot of bthe savings come from the size of the phone and the lack of LTE – you can still use 3G mobile data though.

    With a screen size of just 4 inches the A1 may look dated compared to modern super-size handsets. Yet if all you need is quick access to the web and other connected applications, and don’t care too much about media & entertainment on the go, this is a basic and affordable tool.

    For a first time smartphone user, or a company looking to outfit workers with simple, yet capable handsets, the A1 is a great choice.

    Dual SIM

    Every smartphone we range from Nuu Mobile is Dual SIM (dual-standby). With this technology, you can run two SIM cards and numbers in the phone at the same time.

    If you receive a call on one line, the other will switch to standby (voicemail if active). In the settings you can decide whether to have outgoing calls/messages defaulted to one SIM, or to provide the option of using either.

    Dual SIM capability is increasingly popular. Many people use the technology to run a second line for work. Others may travel or lot, or find themselves wanting to call home to family in another country. You can often find great rates for international calls with niche suppliers, so having one phone to handle domestic and international calls on different numbers is especially useful.
