The Huawei Y360 is cheaper by degrees.

That's a 4-inch screen, with a lacklustre resolution -- a movie machine this ain't.

The 4-inch size means it's perfectly pocketable though, bucking the trend for bigger phones.

Exact prices haven't been confirmed, but Huawei told us it would cost less than £100 in the UK. That's pretty cheap for a smartphone, in any language -- it translates to about $150 or AU$200.

The biggest omission is 4G LTE, but that does keep the price down.

The Y360 will be powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat software, not the latest 5.0 Lollipop.

The phone packs a generous 2,000mAh battery, which is removable if you need to swap in a spare.
