Seriously sam of London , could you stop your trolling every android phone post and spouting utter crap . This a deal any way you look at it (thanks op) and please stop this waffle with band 20 . The crap that we buy from the high street is also " made in China" that includes the iPhone !!
So could you zip it? Or is it too much to ask of you?

There is B20 version of this phone. Buy it instead.
Are you talking about the Z2 Pro ?
Yes maybe cost little more but work much better in long run
And why would that be? The specs are the same, the only differences are LTE band 20 and slightly larger screen (but lower ppi).
Because it would also work as a phone not just as a tablet in UK.
What do you mean? 3G will work just fine on this one.
Also EE 4G and potentially Three and Vodafone should work as well.
Yes but not as it should if you buy phone in UK. B20 is best UK 4g band with all networks including 3 and ee. Cat 12 Lte and higher which use carrier aggregation, download speeds are possible if only all bands working. If you are looking for voice and WiFi only you will be fine. But is it worth the hassle and money to get the phone to UK from China when it is not going to work properly on 4g. Plus customs cost and administration free from courier.

Here you are talking absolute nonsense about cat 12 lte again, when no UK networks even have cat 12. EE offer the fastest 4G using carrier aggregation of 2 2600mhz and 1 1800mhz. Article here. 800mhz does nothing for the speed. Only improves coverage to more rural areas which is irrelevant for people who get full signal anyway. X12 is not dependant on Snapdragon 820. It can support it but the phone needs to also have it. One Plus 3 for example has X7 modem despite being SD820 so even if Cat 12 LTE existed in UK, it couldn't access it. Article about 4G speeds from Ofcom. O2 is clearly a lot slower than all the rest and uses pretty much only 800mhz, yet you determine "B20 is best UK 4g band". Typical nonsense from you to back up your "opinion"

Sam is a funny one who thinks that phones without B20 won't work at all for data service. You'll see Sam on any thread for import phones, saying the same thing then being silent once challenged. Either a persistent troll flogging a dead horse or just incredibly wrong.

What happened Sam, who hurt you?

all those specs yet no battery size?

nice and fast, weak points are no band 20 and 3000mah battery. I'd prob go for the slightly cheaper redmi 4 pro if I was after a 5 inch phone.

still hot though

Samsung put a 2550mAh battery in the S6 and that doesn't have the best battery life, 950mAh more should definitely be better.

Could you tell us more about this "little work" that it needs? I thought it would work right out the box?
#12
I think this looks like a very good deal. Does anyone know if a less mainstream phone like this one will run apps like SkyGo, Amazon Instant, Now TV? I know in the past many of these apps only worked with the big name phones though I gather that may be less the case these days. (I appreciate people are saying I'd have to flash Google Play, but I'm not so worried about that.) Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

I believe that you need to do some fiddling with the ROM stuff. Mainly there may be no Play Store or the usual default Apps (all the Google Play stuff, Youtube etc). However, that depends on what the retailer has done to the phone to get it ready for market.

One fairly major thing is that there may be some spyware on there which you'd need to unlock developer mode to find and get rid of.

While it sounds daunting, I had to reinstall the OS on my current phone using instructions online and it was relatively time consuming but fairly straight forward with instructions online. The instructions tend to be a little jargon-laden, which can be tough to begin with, but I figured it out in a day or two! There was a thread for this phone about 2-3 weeks ago (from Banggood) which had quite a lot of info and links about the stuff you'd need to do.

Does anyone know how long will the shipping take realistically? What is the chance of getting it before Christmas?
#16
IMO this is a good deal, but not outstandingly so in comparison to other deals for the phone. The phone has been around the £155 mark from Banggood for the last month or so.

However, for the specs and reviews for a phone of this price, its an amazing deal.

My biggest issue with the phone (other than B20) is the lack of NFC which means no Android Pay, something I've become reasonably fond of.

Pro model is nearly £300, but for that money I'd choose a OP3.

I'm perfectly happy with 3G for data, and this phone will support it just fine for all the networks. For 4G I can use EE as it operates solely on 1800 and 2600, which again this phone supports. Other networks use 800 (this spectrum is missing) plus some other that this phone can use. source

Good for you. But for most people like me if they spend £200 and go through the time and hassle of getting phone from China, it should work properly on all networks and have fast download speeds just like if you bought the phone on the High Street.

How much commission does Gearbest give you to sell their stuff here? Why don't you recommend UK sellers with all UK bands and UK warranty, instead of grey imports from Gearbest China with no warranty and many time are full of viruses, pups and root kits to help Chinese hackers steal personal data of people in Uk.

But I just said 4G will work on EE with full speed. Also, unfortunately I can't afford a £600 phone from your High Street, because this is how much I'd have to spend to get this sort of specs.

No 4g Lte only works with carrier aggregation at full speed, which is only possible if all network bands are working. B20 is the best UK 4g band as it is lower 800 frequency so more able to penetrate buildings and longer reach. All the networks paid millions of pounds to buy this band from the government when it was sold after end of analog TV transmission in UK.

To help people see the fact from conjecture in the "will it work" debate, here's a link: http://willmyphonework.net/

EDIT: Probably worth saying that there will be differences in speed on networks and so on based on phone, network, where you are, what websites you go on and so on, and then whether this speed is "fast enough". All of which no one except you can actually determine.

On the other hand, if your Pixel goes wrong, you have Google support plus warranties from whatever company you bought from, plus potentially random phone fixer companies if those two fail. On this one, while there's a warranty, it involves posting to China, hoping they get it, hoping they fix it, and hoping they send it back. Or, alternatively, going to a random phone fixer and hoping they have the weird specific parts. Or sourcing those parts yourself and fixing it yourself.

So yeah, its cheaper than the Pixel. But you're paying at least some of that for reliability/peace of mind.
