it's Alright! but the fake "bazeless" screen is tacky, 720p@5.5" is FAR from sharp! but then again, its £67! warm from me.
import charges for this then andsnail mail charge as well
some ace banter:

"Question::
Hello Is really on EU warehiuse? Tax free, Duty free for EU region costumer? THX

Reply:
Hi Atlas,
It is available on EU warehouse. But there are a lot of customers placing order on our website, so it will not be in stock at any time. Thanks for your understanding!
If the item is shipped from EUR warehouse to the listed European countries, there is no customs. Hope you enjoy shopping here with us"

Even better is this one-

"Question::
what warranty? battery included?

Reply:
Hi mike,
We have One Year Free Repair Warranty for this item for all over the world. You can send the phone back to us for respiration."

Best to do it before you perspire?

I'm quite sure the 5200mah battery is exaggerated
I had a Samsung mega 6.3" screen that was 720p, that was fine, so 5.5" should be no issue.

Apparently my Honor 7 can. Not got a clue what cable you'd have to use though.
Great deal. Not sure wether to get a cubot phone etc again as had one in past and so did the wife and they both packed in between 6-9 months. Volume went on both of ours, tried everything to fix it but no luck. If I was ever to get again id probably go for a Doogee one as I heard there the best ones to trust ??
When you add it to cart the price goes up to £85.44?

I ordered my P8000 from Gearbest, it was tracked at every stage and arrived within 10 days after shipping so can recommend. No customs charges as the phone was valued at $20 oO

This is a fantastic deal for what you're getting. The issue I see with many of the small-medium league Chinese phone manufacturers such as Cubot, Doogee, Elephone etc is that they use a lot of manual soldering in their production lines (check out the Doogee assembly line videos on YouTube). The big boys (LG, Samsung) have handed over most of this type of manual work on to soldering robots. The consistency of quality in soldered joints made manually can never compare to the quality of soldering delivered by an automated assembly line. Over time, and with constant changes in temperature as solder contracts and expands, soldered joints weaken to a point where devices start having problems of the nature you describe. An overworked, hapless Chinese assembly line worker needs to have only one bad day for an entire batch of phones to suffer issues through a few poorly soldered joints, and who can blame them.
I'm not saying a Samsung or LG phone cannot develop the same type of faults, they can and they do, but statistically one can be fairly confident their failure rates are probably lower due to the high level of assembly line automation, rigorous QC etc.

Great deal and heated.
The review here suggests 3-day battery life so Cubot are probably not making up all of those mA hours!

Looks like even better value than the Doogee X5 Pro with the larger screen and at under £70 delivered.

Just out of interest, did you select any special postage, like insurance? I'm wondering if you select insurance they value it at the correct price, and more chance of customs charges.

Please remove the curved screen from the description. I've read through the description and it doesn't have one. And it certainly wasn't what I was thinking of...e.g. LG Flex...
That MUST BE a non-Apple phone assembly line photo, `cos they are not kids, & no one is sweating his butt off.....
£85 now

No but I did add tracking to the package which cost me an extra £4 or so.

Actually, you do have a point :-) .
With China, conventional economics applicable to Western economies is reversed. They have an almost limitless supply of cheap labour hence automated manufacturing usually costs significantly higher than manual production lines. The impact on families in far-flung, rural communities is of course profound.

Doogee F5: has higher res. screen, is thinner, slightly faster (3Gb RAM), likely better camera (but both poor)
Cubot H1: has compass, better battery, 802.11n 5GHz, Host charging

£4 tracking? It's normally only about £1 I thought when I used it. Maybe it works the other way around - is you use tracking they say it's worth less on the label because they are insured anyway... who knows...
I bought an Elephone P7000, while I am happy with it, bear in mind that the Warranty is not the type of warranty you get from lets say Amazon. If something was wrong with your phone, it takes an average of 2 working days for their customer services to get back to you, even if you buy from an EU warehouse, you will have to send the phone back to China (at your cost), if you get a straight refund from them (not Paypal), the money goes into a wallet (not in your bank account. It is a bit of a lottery i guess, buy your better be aware of this before clicking on that buy button
Thanks for this OP. I've never ordered a dodgy Chinese phone from a dodgy Chinese shipper but hell I fancied taking a punt. And the price does go up in the basket but if you buy it in White it is still £68. Just don't buy gold.
