China is voting with its feet with regards to battery life.

Western smartphones are looking seriously anorexic in comparison.

The last Chinese phone with a battery that size was a complete lie when it was torn down and checked. I'd wait for a unbiased review before assuming it really is 8500mAh.
280 grams!

Good point, but my duff old Wileyfox Swift means I currently have to carry a charger with me that must weigh half a kilo.

The last one was the Doogee BL12000 and claimed "largest battery in the world" at12,000mAh. In fact it was more like 4000mAh.
Also fake dual cameras and with bezels far larger than shown on their adds.

Fake padding too then? That weighs 300g. Saying that, someone complained that theirs only had a 10,000 battery. Fibbing to up the price?

Very topical for me I've just spent over £100 in moolah repairing my Oukitel K6000 o Plus in terms of USB port (be wary of OTG functions they stressed my port too much, especially OTG adaptors) and also screen which cracked (tempered glass protector not install[ed]) and so on and so on. Seems I would have been better off just getting this. The thing is though, with the various 2FA things it's not really that easy to switch phones or even reset phones and even firmware upgrade android phones now.

Thank you and I will add heat shortly. I have no specific knowledge of this phone or OS or whether or not the battery capacity is verifiable. My K6000 can last around 2 days with just over 6000 mah in their specification(s). EDIT: Maybe 1.5 days. It's heavy enough to suggest the battery is a large capacity.

Fake whatever they like, there's no consumer law as we have it over there. They can say what they like buyers have no come back.
Many iPhone 6s batteries looked fake too.

And its rubbish quality that matters too, reliability being down on cheaper ones.This phone has an old chipset.
whereas the Doogee has the new P23.

It looks promising. It supports NFC but does it support Android Pay?
To support that, it needs to be Google Certified.
Will wait for more info.
Bluboo devices come with malware/adware, and various annoyances baked into their stock software like the inability to use a launcher other than their own (which helps spam you with ads).

You shouldn't use bluboo phones even if they're free, if you value the safety of your google account and any associated data.

To the guy asking if you can setup NFC payments with this, you'd be insane to put those details on this phone.

Google Certification checks for these issues such as being able to use Google apps including a Google launcher.
Perhaps, you ought to qualify your statement with evidence of "Not Google Certified" instead general inflamatory unsubstantiated comments and what others said that were not said.
Wouldn't touch a Bluboo with a barge pole ! Had a Bluboo S1 , dual camera my a##e , and also with the added bonus of malware and randomly deciding to switch off.

This company is American & sell their gears in the US. It's unlikely they would lied about the battery. Yanks love class actions.
However, they're quite notorious with software shenanigan.
That is Blu, a small US company.

Boo is big in China.

OnePlus certainly 'Never Settle's with one serious issue after another. Perhaps, their philosophy is a curse, rather than asset.
Maybe they ought to change it to "Happy Customer" philosophy.
I had a bluboo once. Came with free malware in a weather app which used a lot of data, presumably sending my information to China. Stick to Xiaomi or you'll live to regret it.
Amazing specs on paper and for the money. But the issues mentioned by many here are putting me right off from considering this

I am inclined to agree.
The Google Certified status and Google Protect may help identify the shenigans under the hood by signalling Google Pay and banking apps to not work.
These are enforced this year and OEMs cannot just install Google apps (or side load them) on their untested mobiles and sell them because they wont work.

Also, am curious Company philosophy of Bluboo. Does anyone know?
Perhaps, its "CON THEM ALL SUCKERS"

Wow you must love that phone lol. I won't be using an otg cable on my k3 now then
I only paid 75 for mine and I'm really impressed with it for that price and the battery lasts days.. I can play a game for 3 hours solid and still have 40% left.
Did you get an ota android security update the other day?

Thanks for the reply 'jumpinoffthbed'. I mean the phone is pretty good, I wouldn't say I'm all too attached to it it's just hard to get a large battery (mah) capacity retail and if I had to replace it from a Chinese website / retailer it would take maybe 25 days to arrive and there is always the possibility of customs charge. I wasted some of that £100 + on buying a new glass (it's much easier for repair shops to fit a new screen if you get them the part that includes the LCD - which carries an additional cost) and being messed about by a shop that tried to fix it, failed, and charged me £15 for the privilege of returning my broken phone.
Oukitel as far as I know are still providing updates for the K6000 Plus model I'm just not really checking since one of their recent updates reset the OS and reset my 2FA programs which was a fairly major inconvenience for me.

Enjoy your phone !
