Aliexpress are one of the best far eastern suppliers to order from.
Your funds are not released to the seller until you have taken delivery and confirmed all is well.
Picked up a Oukitel K4000 for 67 quid just before christmas and it is an excellent cheapo phone.
This is a good price but it is a pity it's not a 4G model.
Heat added.
Positive, detailed review on youtube CLICK HERE made by a guy who knows his stuff. These competent, well built bargain price Chinese phones just keep on coming. Factor in UK shipping and there's nothing to not like if you are in the market for a budget phone. Hot.
I got this for my dad a couple of months ago, it's quite a nice phone for the price.
2GB Ram, Android 5.1 and shipped from UK. What's not to like? Hot.
Tempted but I just missed out in a su6 for 60 yesterday off gumtree (because the seller was oh so lovely) and isn't that a better Phone ?
I got the cubot H1 for the Mrs a couple of days ago via Amazon....really surprised how good it is! and this is from someone who has a note 4.....it's really making me think hard about whether I actually need a flagship phone from any of the big four android phone makers......might just get a sim only deal and buy a Chinese takeaway
No 4G though .
True, no 4G if that's a dealbreaker. Mind you, comes in the box with a free clear silicone plastic back cover and a factory applied screen protector. Be great if the established UK brands did the same.

Many thanks for this deal. Only two in white were available for UK and I ordered both.
Can anyone confirm that returns are back to the same UK warehouse when it comes to faulty gear/warranty issues? I'd assume so but I've come across a lot of threads referencing gearbest forcing customers who've had issues to send them to China at their own cost, even though they were bought from the EU warehouse - that's really underhanded!

This phone looks pretty good for the money. It's obviously gonna have a few little niggles, but what do people want for £55?! Heat from me
no longer shipping from uk
I was looking for something like this for a friend but the lack of 4G was a bit of an issue and I found this, also from the same UK warehouse hotukdeals.com/dea…427 and thought I'd post to see what people thought.

Oh, ok, I posted a deal from the same seller using the same warehouse and it was marked as spam and deleted - seems your face has to fit - cheers mods!

Just ordered from here as it's out of stock from the store in the OP.

Also on Amazon UK and eBay for £64.99.

I'm looking forward to getting this phone as a replacement for my ageing S3 mini.

It's illegal too, they should take GearBest to the small claims court. If they're selling stuff within the EU, surely they have to abide by EU law. It makes no difference if you're buying an item that's sent from Germany, Spain or whatever, you should have the same rights as if you bought the item in the UK.

Thank you. I just checked it doesnt but another seller sold at the same price through mobile app so ordered one from them.

Thank you anyway.
Loads of 5 star reviews on Amazon BUT they are all 5 STAR reviews!!!!!

Looks like most have been given the phone for free or very cheap

Still seems good for the money but dubious about the battery and how long the phone would last in reality
Only shipping from Italy or China via the mobile app, am I missing something? Lot of phone for the price though wouldn't mind something like this as a back up.. Anyone know of any similar alternatives?

Still shows via App as despatched from the UK to the UK
Download app. Search cubot note. It's the first one sold by Cubot at 20% discount
Cubot always seems to make really decent phones. My three year old Cubot GT99 is still going strong and lovely to use.

​I'm not getting it. Just China and Italy. I've just checked again now. That's both within the app and following the 'get deal' link from here. Maybe it's going in and out of stock and I need to keep trying. Cheers for the reply.

3 years is amazing!
You've tempted me... I'll keep an eye on the Aliexpress app. Good app
Probably wait for the imminent batch of 5.2 inch marshmallow handsets...Maybe a month or two

yeah i'm on the lookout for a 5-5.5inch handset with 2gb ram 16gb memory 13mp & 5/8mp cameras for under 100 nearer the 80 mark .... probably dreaming (though my p8 lite was 85 and fits that spec & from uk -cpw)

Yeah all that please with marshmallow for £100
Will interesting if Vodafone match the Ultra 6 later this year with another zte handset. Possibly they might rebrand ZTE axon mini.... Just a guess

i sold my su6 and kinda regretting it but reminding myself it was far from perfect my messaging app didnt work properly and i dislike that it didn't really have led notifications only one blue circle in the middle for all. it was also huge -_- i mean the bezels didnt need to be as big as they were really screen to body ratio could have been better but i guess that's to expect on a budget phone. i love how easily and cheap it was to unlock though.
would be nice to see a smaller phone as budget phone of the year this year. when to they usually come out anyways? no word as yet of what we can expect. hopefully no great jump in price either like moto g have done with their most recent version taking it out the budget catagory.

yes my ask was ambitious but like i said not impossible pretty impressive really to get a phone with those specs from a uk retailer at that price. i'm just not loving my p8 which is somewhat disappointing having came from 2 huawei's previously oh and i guess i'm not overly bothered about it having marshmallow

how does this compare to the infocus m560
not sure if its a chinese brand think indian but either way sells on the same sites.
it looks aesthetically pleasing and seems to have similar specs
can someone tell me the cheapest chinese phone with released sources? I'm trying to find one around £150 mark I'm bored with android lollipop.
59.49 now

You get the cheaper price by ordering via the app. To be fair the price will fluctuate a little because of the exchange rate.
Is the Play Store preinstalled?
