Sale price from Jan 22 - Feb 6. (Edit Friday 3rd Feb): Price went up from £80.94 originally to £81.46 today Sat 4th Feb - currency converter fluctuations :)
Mine was dispatched in a day and a half - others are reporting 8-10 day delivery times to the UK, not bad.
*Seems it won't work with Android/Apple Pay in the UK*
See Post #102, (thanks to Paddy_o_furniture)
"Chinese roms usually aren't official builds (may be seen as rooted) as such Google and many banks won't allow you to use their banking apps or indeed android pay due to security issues. ...it won't be an official Google build.... Many Chinese phones are incompatible with pay/banking apps for this reason"
seinman says, "It's not a Google certified handset as it was never sold outside China."
Can see a discussion thread about this phone already on HUKD http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/zte-nubia-z7-max-5-5-inch-2gb-ram-32gb-rom-qualcomm-snapdragon-4g-smartphone-80-2586140
This has Dual-SIM, gyroscope, compass, NFC, 3100mAh battery and a decent camera. According to the Youtube review (at 14:55) on Post #2 the screen is Gorilla Glass 3. No fingerprint scanner, and non-removable battery.
5.5" Full HD IPS display - Pixel density 401ppi, camera - Sony IMX214 Exmor RS sensor (same as the Motorola Moto G4, Xiaomi MI4, OppoFind 7 and Oneplus ONE). Apparently the video supports 4K recording (!).
ROMs are also discussed on the aforementioned HUKD thread but that's beyond my ken (see Post #20).
