Orange Barcelona Android phone from £40

If you are on Orange and are looking for an affordable handset, then check out the Orange Barcelona, a £40 handset from Argos’ eBay outlet that comes with free delivery and 40 Nectar points.

This is a basic smartphone but still manages to include a QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi connectivity, a microSD card reader, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Android Froyo 2.2, a 2.6in capacitive touchscreen display (320x240 pixels), HD Voice and Qualcomm MSM7227 system-on-chip clocked at 528MHz for not much more than what you’d paid for a feature phone.

The Barcelona is a decent alternative to the more expensive ZTE Kis although the latter comes with £10 top up on Virgin Mobile as well as one year worth of data allowance (1GB per month) that costs £60.
