I had the Chuwi Vi7 for a bit, which used the same Sofia processor - although the CPU was clocked at 900Mhz and not the advertised 1200Mhz.

The Antutu score was around 25K, which was okay - a bit faster than a Moto G or something of that ilk. The 3G on the chipset worked fine as well, and I was able to get good download speed.

For this price, this looks very good. I paid slightly more £37 for the Chuwi.

Hot deal!

[Note: There appears to be a bit of confusion whether it uses the C3130 or C3230 CPU]

Looks pretty naff, but at that price I guess you can't expect much!

Has GPS and is dual sim as well, so great for a Carputer or something that's not your main machine. Very cheap for this I think.
does anyone know if this supports agps

I've got a tablet I use with just GPS, and my cars front screen doesn't let the GPS signals through very well
I thought if this has agps, it would help it grab a decent position fix, without too much dependence on proper GPS.

I only drive city to city so I will not need the GPS in the .middle of the forest where there's no mobile signal....

so far its driven me bonkers as it misreports the position and the software constantly tries to reroute me!...
thank you....
1GB Ram, GPS, Quad core and dual sim 3G, with Bluetooth 4 even. Those are decent features at this end of the market.

I just bought one and I'm already regretting it..... wish I'd bought 2.
is this a phone? im not upto this kind of thing or is it a tablet thanks
So your get charged by royal mail for this?

It's a big big phone. Not for everyone tbh
is it good?? my son keeps on losing his, so not willing to fork out for the current range of smart fones, i want something tidy, but that's not too expensive as he's likely to lose this aswel!!

It's pretty much down to luck. I was charged £10 handling fee by Parcelforce plus relevant duties/tax which are decided by HMRC.
Depends who is doing the handling once in the UK .. I've had about 10 £30+ items in the last few years and got stung for one.

I'm not sure AGPS would help you.

​i thought because it uses the mobile network.. it could assist the weak proper GPS ....

You'll be ok, bit worst case you pay 20% which is 6 quid!

I found the '7 inch Chuwi Vi7 Android 5.1 3G Phablet' for sale on the same website for the same price - just chose the option with no charger.
This one is supposed to be a bit better (plus it runs android 5.1)

Hang on, so you get charged by hmrc and the post office then?

That's my understanding yes !! The handler, be it parcelforce/UPS/whoever grab their fees for ermmm "handling" and then the package is assessed by them for the relevant import duties/tax applicable.It's just down to luck whether you get caught or not... Going off the parcelforce link the current allowance is £15, anything more valuable can be charged for.
leeparsons

Yep, if you get stung you get stung for both - the handling (from the post office) is often more than the duty (from customs & excise).
Price went up to now
for this price its a steal !

No. I've been very lucky. Over 50 orders and nothing lost or customs! I always get cheapo postage. If you get dhl you will get stung.
Maybe a silly question but would it work with no sim and using home internet and use like a tablet.

So £36 is allot more than the £15 i was told about earlier, going via that link. So you should miss import charges, but might get caught by the po. Why does the po take a cut, when postage has already been added then? Smells like a **** take to me, as it;s already been paid. Typical greed from certain people in our society, and they wonder why people then do the things they do.
you ONLY pay royal mail charges if HMRC require you to pay the import duty.
If you don't 'get caught' by HMRC you won't be charged anything by royal mail.
It's basically an administration fee because you don't pay HMRC directly. Royal mail collect the money, hold the parcel etc.

Same.

Also wild out there question. Since this an Intel Atom Sofia processor, would this phone in theory support a Windows install? I mean copious driver issues aside, this thing would run x86/x64 code right?

Paypal is the problem. Why people are obbessed with them and think they are protected mote, is beyond me.
Chargeback is via yojr debitcard for things undet £100 and use a credit card for over £100
