Looks like a Curry's price match for overpriced tat.
Obviously you've used them substantially. Perhaps you can name an alternative with similar functionality and is completely wire free?
Yup. Toytown tat.

This has a better camera than the Lenovo tho?

Well it has bigger numbers for the camera...whether it's better is probably a matter of opinion. maybe worth checking some reviews to be sure...

This Vernee phone has a camera with bigger numbers than the one on my 2yr+ old Galaxy Note 4 and the Google Pixel..but I doubt its better.

Consider when the phone starts playing up after 6 months...would you rather just pop into your nearest Three shop for a repair/replacement or ship the Vernee back to China....

great item an set up is easy , image quality fine along with night vision , due to no wires you can put them in obscure places people dont expect
the app also stores images for free whereas other companies charge
-- one negative -- burns through batteries which are not the cheap versions
Good price, good product. Have two, one at the rear and one at the front. Movement activation works well too.

​I'm guessing that is the thickness of the aluminum shell. The phone will be thicker.
Sorry for the typo – should say 8mm thickness.

Edited By: jevtamsn on Jan 19, 2017 21:32
Be careful with Bluboo pre-orders!
They seem to release phones with software, with loads of bugs when first released, and send you constant updates that resolve one issue and cause another issue.
It was not until about 6 weeks after having the phone the updates calmed down and the phones worked great.
I would hold off ordering until the phone has been out for a few weeks, and the software on the phone is fully working.

i used to love gearbest, ordered loads of stuff from them, that was until they got greedy and their prices rocketed and i realised i can get 99% of the stuff they sell from the uk cheaper and not have to wait 3 weeks for it to arrive.... or actually NOT arrive in my case twice.
The similar specced Doogee shoot 1 is the same price at a few sellers ( bangood and geekbuying ) and should ship earlier ( its released about now ).

I wish there was a 5" version . The 5.5" models are too big and bulky.

Got this. The screen is fine - had an LG G3 before and you have to look hard to see the difference imo. I'd only pay the £300+ between this and a high end phone if I watched lots of movies and wanted top quality photos or played games. Great to have lots of memory, load on loads of apps without 'memory full' messages from a 16gb phone. Otherwise works well and looks great. Can't get fingerprint scanner to work though! I think well worth this money for the performance overall.
And what's battery life like please?


Battery life been very good so far. Get a full day easily out of quite heavy use. At least as good, probably better than my old LG G3.

Usually absolutely rubbish on Doogee phones, very poor lenses coupled with terrible firmware.

I have Doogee y-pro something or other for about 1.5 years. The three problems I have are sound quality (really poor), pictures are just okay and it is all plastic body which has all corners broken. :(

So, what is the sound like (e.g. when receiving a call), camera and the body/screen of it?
Thanks.

Do you mean the horrible black border around the screen on white models? Xiaomi just silently fixed it on the Redmi 4, I'm not sure about the Redmi 4 Pro/Prime which this is and it may take a bit for stock to filter though.

After something easy to install which will be for the rear garden to go alongside a Yale alarm system
You can get Full HD 1080P ones (Amazon for example) for a similar price/less. There's also no mention if this is ONVIF compliant (probably is) which would be helpful if wanting to record to an NVR or PC.

On top of that, the camera mount looks terrible, I'd want one a bit more solid that locks with a grub screw, so will require a tool to adjust or remove the camera, and preferably has the cable protected within the mount rather than exposed, the wing nut and metal ball will probably rust when exposed to the weather making it difficult to adjust if you need to.

A budget 720p IP camera with a metal case that supports onvif and a reasonable picture bought from a UK seller cost me about £20 last year, admittedly without a PIR detector, or wifi, but for that money you should be able to do much better.

I was an early adopter of Ulefone; I have a discarded Be Pro in a drawer. It lasted 11mths before it was too painful and laggy to use (despite factory resets etc). Build quality was so-so, and promised Android updates never came.
In my opinion, Ulefone seem to develop a phone and instead of adding updates, improving, they move on to the next phone. Each phone seems to be the upgrade to the last. I decided I wouldn't buy the brand again.


​Agreed, the products get rolled out so regularly that they are basically ditched as soon as they are launched.
I've got an UMI Plus E. It's UMI's latest phone, only been out about a month.
Performance and battery life are nowhere near what you'd expect from 6gb RAM and a 4000mAH battery. Camera is worse than the UMI Super which is older (and still wasn't great) and there is no news on the promised upgrade to Android 7. Also random wifi issues that can only be resolved by a reboot.
UMI announced the UMI Z before my Plus E had even shipped so I presume they are focused on getting that out of the door.

Good phone, though I'd be wary buying from a non-UK buyer. These phones suffer with a very common fault resulting in vertical lines showing on the screen. It happened twice with mine within the first 6 months of ownership. Each time motorola replaced the screen.

I'd be worried that the fault would recur once the phone was out of warranty. You're legally entitled to a refund after ONE repair fails, if the fault was reported within 6 months of purchase. Motorola won't admit that though.

Had this for about 6 months.
Be warned - yes the screen won't shatter, but it will scratch up like anything. Very very soft compared to gorilla glass. It's essentially just plastic. Mine looked awful very quickly. Wish I'd fitted a screen protector, but as the screen didn't feel particularly responsive in the first place I avoided it.
You can of course replace the top layer for £20 yourself if (when) the scratches bother you.
Which brings me to my second problem with this phone.
The shattershield lens is invariably out of stock and the only place you can buy a replacement is directly from Motorola. I waited months for it to be restocked, but finally gave up and sent my handset back.
Used to get bloody hot too...

Same price at Argos if you can find stock
The camera at Argos (and John Lewis) actually comes with a different lens, one without image stabilisation, something that is important if you’re taking photos without a tripod (apparently!). The non-IS lens seems to be newer, however (it is mark III rather than mark II). On Canon’s own website they are selling the camera with the IS lens (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II zoom lens) for £40 more than the camera with the non-IS lens (EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III zoom lens) (the one being sold at Argos and John Lewis). So perhaps that says something about the relative value of the lenses.
So (as someone wanting an ‘entry-level’ DSLR) I’ve opted for the camera with the IS lens from Amazon as the better bet, even though the lens is older and you can get Quidco with Argos and a 2 year guarantee with John Lewis (it’s a one year Canon guarantee otherwise).
both lenses are same age, the number is only relevant to the type
so there is separate series for non stabilised etc

Is it possible to see what the camera is seeing via a mobile or laptop? (so as to set the view up correctly)
I think you can but you have to use a OTG lead and have a device capable of OTG. I just point mine forwards and very slightly down, with such a wide angle lens it's quite easy to get the full view out of the windscreen and all the videos have been spot on despite taking the camera out numerous times. The only issue I've had is the date resetting over Christmas and that was because I've fitted a capacitor but hardly use the car so basically that's my fault!

Edited By: Gitfinger on Jan 11, 2017 17:03
I orderd this and then saw enough negative reviews from the last cuple of months to cancel the order. Has anyone got any alternatives to this? I could really use a dashcam that doubles up as an action cam that is this form factor.

Is it worth spending another £30 and getting the Nextbase 312GW?
NO!

I have both the Nextbase 512G, and a mobius cam.
Nextbase stopped working after 8 months due to battery failure, and had to be returned to manufacturer. Lots of people experience the same issue - and you cannot get the parts on ebay to do yourself.

The Mobius is older than the nextbase and is much more reliable, has bigger SD card capability (nextbase is max 32GB, Mobius is 128Gb) and the mobius is better pic quality too.

Nextbase are very overpriced for what they are

We have a panasonic TZ60 which is more of a point and shoot style camera, would this be a good upgrade and starting point into taking better photos?
The TZ60 doesn't perform that well when taking pictures in low light, and the camera flash gives all photos a really warm hue.
well yeah for the same focal lengths this is much better but its also much bigger and doesnt cover the same range
the kit lens gets the same views as using up to 1-3x zoom on your tz60 whilst the 75-300 is like using the tz60 in its 3-16 times range

Each to their own on this one, but I moved away from Canon after the crazily cheap offer with £200 cashback for the Panasonic GX80 came along. Smaller, lighter and with great IQ.
But if you just want to dip your feet in the water when it comes to interchangeable lens camera systems then this is a decent place to start. Personally I'd sell the 75-300 without using it, stick it on ebay "as new" and pick up a cheap, used 55-250 IS - a great little lens, and a steal for the money.
ofc it depends what your needs are
gx80 is probably my top choice for value atm but you need to look at more than just base body price
canon is probably the best value for expanding to a good wide/standard/tele setup
naturally its much bigger etc but know your own needs
The price in Argos is £449 (before the £30 CB) http://www.argos.co.uk/product/4131432

Surely the JL deal is much cheaper, or am I missing something ? This seems a cracking deal for this camera.

Like saying my old 14" portable tv is similar to my 40" flatscreen because I can watch tv on them both.
One is inferior to the other.
Take a look at the review and sample video then compare it to the GoPros sub £250
​I agree tbh. I've owned the original yi camera.
And being an ex owner of a gopro hero 4 black. the difference in both cameras aren't that far off.
There's quality difference between the two of course, but it wasn't much to really beat up either camera. (gopro was a tad easier to use with its remote control distance etc, better wifi etc).
The gopro price points are really high, and don't always justify the quality difference between the two.
If I were to drop £60 on a really good action camera or £300 on gopro latest model. I'd personally pick the yi, as I know I barely used the gopro (ruined my ankle 3 weeks after buying it and sold it 4 months later) and the Yi camera was more than enough with its 720/120 setting (shame sound wasn't recorded at this setting).

WTF has the GoPro got to do with you doing in your ankle and then selling it ?


​I didn't use the point that my ankle being injured effected my opinion of the camera.

Also, my words "as I know I barely used the gopro" and then explained why I didn't use the gopro. (Bought it to record sports, was Injured, couldn't use it to record my sports)

I just stated I owned a gopro for a short while and had sold it off because I injured myself. It's money better spent else where instead of it sitting in a draw.
With a couple of scripts (from dashcamtalk) you can get some incredible footage with this, it makes other generic Chinese cameras look like junk, shame the prices have gone up, was only £44 over a year ago.

Good body. Bought mine second hand for a bit over £500 from Ebay (body only) 9 or 10 months ago. Not bad at this price/with this lens, but IMO much better value if bought second hand. Under £500 for a hardly used 70D is possible now.


I understand where you're coming from, but the lens alone is worth £300
Was close to getting this the other week but opted for the 760d instead

I purchased this for a friend and have to say the battery does indeed last days with regular usage. However, it's like carrying a brick - very heavy
Is he happy with it regarding performances

Yes, no complaints at all baring the weight
my pal had it for couple of weeks... he was annoyed with his note3 battery performance.
he's having note 3 + 10000baterry now.

oukitel battery last forever, crap camera, crap screen resolution (for this size), second sim slot is memory cards also. if u using 2 sims = no ext memory.

note3 is nearly 4 years old since release and some poibt having better performance, apart of that you still get some software support on xda, dunno how it works with oukitel
If you absolutely need a phone to last two days then get this, otherwise theres much better options around the same price point with better processors, memory and features (i.e. redmi note 3 pro). You could also carry around a small power bank which would mean the same amount of power technically but your phone doesn't weigh as much as a house brick.
My friend has this, only get it if you really need the giant battery. It lasts for days, but the camera is awful unless it's a bright sunny day, the performance is acceptable if you're patient, but apps take a while to load & anything graphically intensive is sluggish. The GPS is comical. It works, but it's off center, i.e. you're moving in the grass alongside the road instead of on the road. There's also a weird delay, in that it'll show you as being where you were 10 seconds ago. WiFi & data signal are good though.

I would recommend the the GX80 Mirrorless Camera in Silver + 12-32mm Lens. Also to point out its has continuous recording time of 29 minutes and 59 seconds (limit placed by panasonic to avoid playing higher custom duties).
If you want to research more on the camera, I'd suggest googling gx85 (american version, same camera except for the video recording limit), as they're more reviews.
I got mine from John Lewis, a little bit more than some others, but have had great service from them previously.
the recording limit is not just panasonic so not worth mentioning really?

You are right...apparently, just find out, that when Sony says 1" sensor, means 13.20mm...how this makes sense, I don't know..!

It's due to an entirely obsolete method of measuring sensors based on video tubes, the important thing to bear in mind is simply the differences between the sensors - a 1in sensor is around a stop smaller than a 4/3 sensor, another stop difference between 4/3 and APS-C and another stop between APS-C and full frame. Getting a 1in sensor size into a body this small with a decent lens would be near impossible, the closest camera in that regard is the RX1 which is a compact camera using a Sony FF sensor although it's bigger than the RX100 and has a fixed 35mm F2 prime lens. More information on sensor sizes here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_sensor_format#Table_of_sensor_formats_and_sizes

In terms of the RX100 vs a micro 4/3 camera, it depends on what you want to do with it. I bought the RX100 purely as a pocket camera which I find it superb for, it offers just the right balance of size and image quality. I'd previously used a Panasonic micro 4/3 camera but even with a prime or pancake zoom I just found it too bulky to keep in a jacket pocket.

​Thanks for the info, really helpful...90% of my photography is travelling/backpacking so size and weight are important for me too...

Just recently upgrade from an eos m to m3 which is perfect for me as I can fit it in a small waist bag or my jacket pocket when I'm in travel mode...just came back from a 10 day trip, and realise that most of my images would have look a lot better if they had the more depth a fast lens can give than the standard kit zoom. I had a second body with me, a xt10, with couple fast mf primes that took some good photos, but its pain swapping primes all the time and is a lot bulkier than the m3.

For a moment I thought that the rx100 can combine narrow dof in small size...

Did you buy this specific brand? As I had one before from China which was crap, this one promises actual 720p so thinking may be ok


​Hi @anthonysinclair I had a 720p one. The quality isn't awful. The problem is the interface - Never quite sure if it's recording or not and also the fact it's impossible to know if you're pointing it in the right direction because the field of view isn't particularly wide.

I had a call this morning saying exactly the same thing. There was no "ex display" information at all, nor was there any indication that there was only one in stock. Annoying.

I've seen various things saying these aren't good for the Canon printers.

Apparently these refill kits work well, though obviously take more effort and time http://www.precisioncolors.com/PC42cref.html Equates to £125 for most expensive kit, add £14 for shipping, Royal Mail £8 fee, £25 for import VAT, would probably come to just under £180 and give roughly 8 refills. The same amount of genuine ink carts would cost £652.36.

If you're buying some clothes pegs or anything under £30 I'd say "risk it" otherwise, you've been warned.
I've never experienced this issue with Amazon and high value items.
That's fine and I'm genuinely glad to hear it. Sadly however I cannot say I've come close to having such an experience;
Don't get me wrong; I've 'used' Amazon for about 5 - 6 years (only for odd bits and bobs) and just like you I couldn't complain for most of it. However, I used them recently (Amazon, with 'Prime' and using Amazon Logistics) to order a few items which ended up broken and the replacements sent to the wrong address.
All the while they expected me to pay for the replacement they'd sent to the wrong address (I don't know if I mentioned this but it took them over a week to realise they'd sent it to the wrong address - they wouldn't admit it but refunded me once I'd confirmed there was another flat block near my address + the threat of legal action).
Anyway with that said, a good few supervisors promised me they would call me back "within an hour""By the end of the day" etc, only 1 of maybe 6 or 7 'supervisors' actually called me back. Only two days later than he said he would to give me information I already knew prior to talking to him (that it had been delivered apparently by the courier, great detective work Sherlock!).
I was hung up on once too by a supervisor, that wasn't very polite - only took about 45 minutes to get through to her as well and with all this said; right towards the end of their week long'48 hour investigation' I had some condescending jerk from their 'investigation team' imply (or at least, strong hint at that idea) that I had received my items and was merely attempting to 'scam' Amazon (baring in mind the items I hadn't received both came to under £200..).
Anyway - it was only after I said I would be reporting Logistics to the police & Amazon to trading standards did they miraculously 'suddenly' realise it had been delivered to the wrong address and issued me with a full refund..
Not the best experience for me, took them almost a month to waste a lot of my time and effort and offer little help or do anything - I could have been out of pocket by almost £150+ and have a broken phone thanks to Amazon and they really didn't care.
It was a grueling experiance and I really expected better from Amazon and Amazon Logistics while also using 'Prime'.
Not that it matters, but what I think happened is; [i]there's a flat block near my block of flats and on three separate calls did the supervisors ask "Do you live near this building..?"

Clearly threatening to call the police did the trick. I usually act on my threats.

My experience has been much better.

I have bought my Honor 8 and it is sitting on my desk. When I bought my LG G4 it came complete with a screen protector. Almost immediately after opening the package containing the Honor 8, it fell from my desk to the laminated floor. Hopefully no damage!

As a result, I decided not to use it until I had got screen protectors and a protective case. I am still waiting for them to arrive. I have also tried to work out how to transfer my date from my existing phone.

I am in no hurry. I would like to get it up and running.

I have decided not to handle the phone to make it easier to put on the protective screen protectors without finger prints etc.

Generally, I am quite pleased. I have ordered quite a bulky unattractive protective case. The phone is so slim etc. that it is tempting to get a very slim case.

For the back of the phone:

6x Mikvon films screen protector SuperClear for Huawei Honor 8 BACK - transparent - Made in Germany (intentionally smaller than the display due to its

For the front of the phone: My phone is blue, but I have ordered gold.


SDTEK Huawei Honor 8 (Gold) Glass Screen Protector - Full Screen


The Case:

Artificial Leather Case for Huawei Honor 8 - Flip-Case black - Cover PhoneNatic + protective foils


When you are thinking of the economics of replacing your existing phone, it is easy to forget to budget all the extra equipment you may or may not need.

I do think this is quite a delicate phone. And I know myself, one small scatch and for me it is 'spoilt'.

Sorry, always will - but colded purely because of Amazon.
They're freakin' useless, incompetent jokers. Do business with them at your own peril if you buy expensive stuff!

What a load of utter tosh, I would rather buy high value items from Amazon over anywhere else
See my reply above if you want a more detailed explanation,not really 'utter tosh' to expect your items to arrive / not be damaged is it?
No, but it is pretty silly to negatively affect every amazon deal because you once had a bad experience.
Amazon customer service is overall excellent, you cannot fault their return and replacement policy. They deal with millions of people and, I expect, billions of orders - there's going to be a small number of problems.
Just because you had a bad experience, doesn't mean others will. I returned/replaced many items when building my pc, never a single issue. I'm fact they gave me more money off my monitor via customer service.
Only reason I got my money back was because I threatened them with legal action after waiting (and waiting) for them to figure out what had happened - all the while with them happily implying I was attempting to swindle them.
Do you see a difference with our stories? You returned some stuff (either because you ordered the wrong stuff, or it was broken? A common issue maybe with items from Amazon :)? ) and got your money back, great.
Me? I ordered some stuff, it turns up broken, takes them another 4 days to send a replacement to the wrong address and they expect me to pay for it until I threaten them with legal action... little different isn't it?
If you still don't understand why I wont actively support Amazon I can attempt to make it a little more simpler but I really don't think I can.
All the best.


I suspect that Amazon work in a similar way to ebay. If you have a record of successful transactions, they are more likely to believe you when things go wrong. I often write reviews in Amazon too.

Like every bureaucracy, you have to play by their rules.
