Mine broke after almost a year unfortunately


In what way? Was it repairable?
Just tried changing to shipping from France, it only increases to £85.62 and should be delivered a lot sooner.

Pretty much all bases covered even NFC. Wish the battery was a bit bigger but for 83 quid I think it's forgivable

hmd? They need to buck their ideas up for sure. The Nokia 9 Pureview was a huge disappointment
Currently typing on this phone. Got it in September 2018 and it has served decent. Never overheats and although storage is low, as card sorts this. I'm having battery life issues as it's running out faster now. Speed is still decent. Finger print scanner useless and camera takes a while to focus to my liking but is good quality for £180. If you are buying for this price it's a no brainer as it's much faster and superior to the Nokia 2.2 which I recently bought for my dad (he only uses WhatsApp video call and YouTube chromecasting)
Hot. Good phone for the money, and being a fan of the smaller phone to fit in the pocket - this goes against the current trend of monster phones that arent very portable.
...and it's Android One. Mine updated itself to Android 10 a couple of months ago.

There's a lot to like here at this bargain price. OK it's not got the super dooper features some will want but for many people this will nicely fit the bill. Heat.
The build quality is amazing for this price, its a solid piece of aluminium
Think I might get this for an elderly relative as it ticks most buttons. NFC for all payments as she paranoid now about contracting COVID-19 from notes & change. My only concern is if this is 2 years old and have been left in a warehouse all that time, how well the battery still fare as it will be depleted whether in use or not.

It hasn't necessarily been lying around for 2 years, I think the phone was still in production as recently as the end of last year. Also as long as it was stored with some of its charge like most phones are and should be. The battery should be unaffected. What kills batteries is leaving them completely flat
Ordered on 25th but yet to receive any update regards shipping showing as not shipped and I've contacted the seller no response. Anyone have an idea how long the wait is? Or should I be worried about GearBest legitimacy?

I've ordered from them twice before. One took 3 weeks. Other took a month. Given current situation with travel I wouldn't expect it within a couple weeks. Did you pay by credit card or PayPal?

So if worst case scenario it doesn't turn up. PayPal will refund you. But I'd give it 3 weeks before you start worrying bud. It's coming from China and also there is travel restrictions in place. People on here have said they've had to wait 4 or 5 weeks for stuff from Xiaomi UK website and they apparently ship from France

If you got tracking info just keep an eye on it. Mine was slow to update with them before too. Was while ago though. Think it was like 2 or 3 days behind with updates

Good. At least PayPal will refund then if it doesn't turn up. I have ordered from them before and they took 3 to 4 weeks. But 1: it was with shipping from China and 2: it was before Covid-19 so obviously different factors at play.

Hopefully someone else here who did order can give their experience. Did you get a confirmation email btw? Did the order definitely go through?

I can't find my order confirmation but I'm sure I had one but I have the PayPal receipt. With ordering via the France link I thought it would be sooner.
I ordered from France on 25MAY and it's still not showing as despatched. I emailed a few days after to ask when it would be sent and after about three days they replied asking me if I'd received it. I told them I hadn't and wanted to know the tracking number and which courier it was sent by (if they're asking if I received it then they must have posted it?) but didn't get a reply so I've now requested a refund.

I don't mind things taking a little while and I have bought from China before where 3wks+ is normal for delivery, but from France it really should be here by now (CS mobiles ship from Spain and always arrive within 7 days - I bought from France for customs reasons but expected it would be quicker), and it's simply not on to show as not even despatched a week after paying. Question is, which will arrive? the phone or the refund?

It's likely that it might be stuck somewhere in the postal system, as I recently received an item from China after 3 months of waiting. The tracking showed it arrived in the UK and stayed in the customs office for over almost 2 months!! why I don't know but I recieved the item eventually, now I just need to email them to pay as they refunded me thinking it was lost in transit

I've requested a refund via PayPal, I found my details and it hadn't even been dispatched!
I ordered from France on 29th May and it was still not dispatched by 11th June. I messaged the seller (in English and French) saying I'd need an update or I'd have to cancel. and all I got back was 'ok' - no other info. So yesterday evening I requested a refund through Gearbest. 5am this morning I get a message that the refund has been denied, as the order has shipped. And lo and behold, it finally reads as dispatched this morning - with a tracking number saying it's been sent through La Poste.

Does this sound legit? I still want the phone, but I'm concerned this may be some kind of scam? Why would you hold onto an order for two weeks and then suddenly dispatch it when the customer asks for a refund? Who does business that way? It seems guaranteed to unnecessarily alienate customers.

I've not had issues them before. Ordered twice and both took 3 or 4 weeks. I'd say give it another week then maybe contact them again or if you paid by PayPal or credit card contact them

Thanks, guess I'll wait and see what happens. When you ordered did it take over 2 weeks to dispatch? I wouldn't have minded if they'd just told me when they were going to send it.

The last time I ordered from them was last year so not 100% sure. I think they were a bit slow with updates tbf. I paid the extra £2 or £3 for shipping insurance too

Too much bezel but awesome screen
Has anyone received this phone from the seller yet?! After cancelling my order because it hadn't shipped nearly a week later, I decided I did really want the phone and place another order on 1st June. It's still not showing as despatched and the seller is ignorning my daily emails asking them where it is. I don't want to request a refund again as I lost £6-8 last time in currency conversion, but some money back is better than the promise of a phone that may never materialise. The seller not responding and it not showing as despatched some 16 days later are making me nervous - how bad would it be if it arrives damaged or faulty?!!!

Phone was just delivered Wonder if they actually dispatched it last week, but forgot to update it online. A day and a half seems weirdly fast coming from France.

Mine just arrived from France via DPD. Placed the order on 29th May. Last Friday messaged the seller through Gearbest saying I would cancel unless I got an update - 'ok' was the only response I got. Requested a refund on Monday evening. Tuesday morning I get an email denying my request because it's suddenly shipped - and now I have it. All looks shiny new and setting up now.

It sucks that you lost money on the refund. Was that through Gearbest or Paypal? I guess if it gets to the point that it reads as dispatched and you have tracking info, you're probably golden. But how it gets to that point is another question. I would say at least give it another week - they may have already dispatched it and just failed to update the info. I don't know how people can run a business like that but maybe customers accept poor service for the sake of the deals?

I think it you're right there. That's the trade off. It's cheaper than ordering from somewhere like John Lewis. But the customer service won't be as good. Tbf. You got in in like 2.5 weeks so not too bad
Still no phone for me.
