Hi everyone.

I recently saw that Game has started selling their own line of cellphones entitled Mint Mobile. I am considering the Mint M5W as a work phone for myself, currently on special for about R1700 . I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S5.

What do you guys think, is it a good phone or a waste of money?

Here are the specs from Mint Mobile Website:

What struck me is that Game advertises it with a 13mp camera while the website states a 5mp camera...

I did some quick googling and could not find much on the phone...

Your biggest deciding factor here would be what exactly you want ot use the phone for? Other than a work phone, which would mean lots of calls and perhaps replying to emails, what else?

I'll be perfectly honest with you, WIndows Mobile 8.1 does not have the best email client. There are a couple of third party applications but currently in my opinion the best one out there is the Outlook client. Which is only available on Windows Phone 10. And I doubt that version will go to this phone.
