Found 6th Jul 2016
Thought this seemed an interesting phone for the price, with pretty decent mid-range specs.
All metal finish measuring 6.5mm thick, with a 5.5.inch, 720p screen, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, 8mp front and 13mp rear camera.
Available in White, Grey and Gold.
Never purchased a Chinese phone before and have decided to make the leap with this one, as not taking such a big gamble, compared to the more expensive phones. But still decent enough specs to use on a day to day basis, for an average user.

Below is a link to the manufacturers site and shows further details on the phone and if not keen on buying from BangGood, it displays other retailers.

​exactly!
Chinese phone manufacturers are bad for delaying phone release, in fact the Bluboo Xtouch was delayed by nearly a year I think. good luck with preorder!

And what is so ridiculous with this name?
For over £50 you would expect LTE really.

​It has LTE!

That's what WCDMA is, isn't it? I thought that was the other name for 4G. best

WCDMA is a 3G system

Also only really works on 2100Mhz 3G in the UK so limited coverage......so OK with £ & EE but there may not be full network coverage on O2 or Vodaphone

I should also add that as a Chinese model it could be loaded with Chinese apps & may not have Play Store installed
try looking here to see if chinese phones work willmyphonework.net/

Accepting so-called 'ridiculous' names requires a change in ethnocentric notions about names and issues that go along with it in a globalised world. Difficult to achieve for many.

Thanks for all the tips​ guys, thought for a minute I'd purchased a £50 brick...
Fortunately I'm still on T-Mobile (EE) as works on their 3G network and Three too!
Unable to confirm if will have the Google Play store, but some photos I've seen, show it does. Sooooo fingers crossed!
Cubot Note S is another contender of similar quality

As said the prices of LTE phones and/or touch enabled are getting closer by the day to this price level.

You may be OK as the 5" Bluboo Picasso certainly has Playstore installed (it also has an extra 3G frequency as well...the O2 frequency)
