Item Description

These days it’s easy to find an entry-level phone with a bit of design flash. The Vodafone Smart N8, Moto G5 and Honor 6X are all affordable, without being plain slabs of plastic. The usual strategy is to cram in some aluminium, though. The EE Hawk takes a different route, with plates of Gorilla Glass on the back and front, like the iPhone 8. It gives this phone a great look and feel, particularly for £150. The curved sides in-between these glassy parts are plastic rather than aluminium, but it is tough stuff. And, in theory at least, should help avoid shattering the back if you drop it. In theory. anyway. On the back you also get a solid, recessed fingerprint scanner. It’s just a pad, not a button, so you just place a fingertip over it in standby to wake the Hawk. Fairly fast and reliable, this is another part you don’t always get at the price. The scanner can be used to navigate the Hawk to an extent too. Swipe down and the notification bar scrolls out. Left and right swipes take you between home screens. You can even use it to scroll up and down in the Chrome browser. Thanks to a 5in screen and slim 7.9mm thickness, the EE Hawk feels good in your hand or pocket. This isn’t a seam-stretcher. It might look a lot like standard Android, but that's not quite what you get. The Hawk uses a custom interface called launcher3, with Android 7.0 underneath. There’s no real messing with the basic structure; it's just the apps menu that looks a little different. You also miss out on a couple of little Android features, like shortcuts when you long-press an app icon, but it’s a feature a lot of people ignore anyway. EE has reined itself in by not jamming the Hawk full of unnecessary apps. This used to be a real problem with network-branded phones like this. You do get an EE app that lets you check up on your top-up or data/minutes allowance, and a Lookout security app. But you’re otherwise left to do with the Hawk as you will. The phone has 16GB storage, leaving you with a bit over half that to actually install apps and store photos. Thankfully you can also bung in a microSD card if that won’t do the job.
