It`s a Pre-sale
I`m waiting for them to be in stock & getting the black one 8)

PS your link shows it at Presale Price : £183.
#2
I think the R9 is nicer looking, waiting for that.

Some site said Nov 23rd release but can't find much else on a release date/s.

Looks solid!

I think it also had Band 20 unlike most other Chinese phones.

How reliable is this website/company?

does it run stock android?

I'm trying to convince the Mrs that I need one of these
http://m.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_310509.html

It's £114.65 on the app and looks great for the price.
#9
the only downside for me is those huge ugly on-screen buttons on the bottom. Why would they screw that great looking phone up and not put them next to the home button like they did in R9..

£164.91 for the Gold S7 is excellent value

Be careful when buying Mobile with cheap mediatek processors of you're doing anything that needs a gyro. (AR, Pokémon go etc) as some of these phones have been shown to report a gyro sensor but have hard coded values.
I work with people that bought into the phones but felt conned by the misleading advertising. They're not simple to return if you get stung.
Apart from that, they're cracking phones in most cases ! oO

They integrated the back and menu keys into the home button by presses.

You get your moaners on here that **** them off, but they're the ones that miss out on deals. :p

I've never had a problem, pay by PayPal and pay the extra $1 for post insurance.

Don't expect replacement if it breaks after 9 months, but if you want that then a £750 Samsung is probably more suitable. :)

As I said before, 99% of these Chinese-sourced phones will have ordinary/average cameras (sorry, yes me again!). Again, not as good as your LG G2 anyway.

Agree, thats one big problem with these phones.Really only found huawei/honor phones past the camera test, all the others are normally disappointing.

btw have owned a elephone (a S3) and got to say build quality is amazingly good but like most of these type of phones theres always niggles (camera,battery amongst other things) and never believe the specs, a lot of the time whats written down and the picture renders are out and out lies.Dont always believe what you see.

If you've ordered one you'll see it by Christmas - which Christmas might be the issue..

My experience from buying a P7000 in presale last year, its to order it and just forget about if, ignore any Elephone release dates and it'll eventually turn up. I might knock them but I'm planning to order an R9 if they ever get around to opening the presale - was meant to be same day as the R7, but this date seems to have slipped...

With the new oneplus at over double the price or this, I'am seriously thinking of buying this.
Few questions:
How does the Helio X20 Deca Core compare to Snapdragon 820?
What am I likey to pay in import taxes?
Whats the advantage to the R9 compared to the S7?
#23
Bought a gold one for £168. Hoping it arrives by xmas.

Can't help on comparing the processor, googles your friend for this.
Select standard shipping which usually avoids import tax.
R9 = mans phone, S7 = girls phone (_;)
On a more serious note, the curved screen is a new addition to the Elephone stable, I'd have a concern that maybe there'll be some sort of quality issue that Elephone haven't encountered, they've launched previous models with problems.

First batch of the S7's are in production and will be despatched shotrtly (Elephone facebook)

Not sure if can be classed as curved screen (more ball from elephone) its more like rounded glass.Loads of phones (galaxy s7 flat version, iphone 7 etc) now have rounded glass screens. even my elephone s3 has a nice rounded edge to the glass.

Hammer 2006 - Thanks for posting the video.
Infiltrator - Thanks for your comments.

So no edge screen on S7 and both (S9 and R9) do not have NFC (I ues it to swith modes from home to car and work).

Think I'll look for an alternative to Elephone.

They took money from me 3 weeks ago for a product they didn't have in stock but said they did. Took me a while to get refunded. No updates to say it was OOS. Just left the item status as "processing" I only found out it was OOS when I contacted them to ask for tracking info.
