If you’ve resolved to splash less cash this year, pricey mobile contracts might be one of the things that you will be looking to avoid.
Fortunately, the EE Hawk 4G smartphone has arrived just in time.
Back in November 2017, EE unveiled their new own-brand smartphone designed to offer the best of the network’s technology at an affordable price.
Dubbed Hawk, the device is enabled with ‘Cat 6’ capability – meaning that it can support 4G download speeds of up to 300Mbps.
In real terms, this means that users could be downloading full HD movies in just a few minutes.
Additionally, EE’s flagship device offers the option of WiFi calling – ideal for users who sometimes find themselves in areas that 4G signal doesn’t reach, such as underground platforms and rural areas.
Behind the all-glass frontage, the EE Hawk 4G packs a punch, with a 1.5GHz Mediatek 6750 64-Bit Octacore processor and 2GB of RAM supporting a 7.1 Nougat Android operating system.
Essentially, it’s a powerful piece of kit, optimised for ease of navigation, personalisation and multitasking.
But it’s not just the impressive features that make Hawk such a revelation.
It’s also a slickly designed piece of tech, with durable Gorilla Glass casing, a 5.0-inch HD display and 13 megapixel front and back-facing cameras.
And with a battery life of up to 10 hours, it’s a device that caters to the heavy usage of today’s mobile generation.
All in all, Hawk is packed full of many of the features we have come to expect from more expensive, high-end devices. However, it’s here that EE have played their trump card.
From 19 January, the smartphone will be available on a pay as you go tariff for a surprisingly affordable price. In fact, with the purchase of a £10 top-up – which covers 1GB of data, 250 minutes and unlimited texts – the handsets come in at just £119.99 a pop.
According to EE, that’s £30 off the RRP – and a good reason to see what all the fuss is about.
