Is this a misprice? Should this be the standard X5? If not, an absolute billy bargain. Black version only. Hong Kong warehouse so expect a 3-4 week wait. Spec is literally incredible for the money.

******EDIT: YOU NEED TO TAKE THE BACK OFF THE PHONE AND REMOVE THE PLASTIC FILM COVERING THE BATTERY TERMINALS BEFORE POWERING THE PHONE UP. IF NOT, YOU WILL THINK YOU HAVE THE DREADED DEAD ON ARRIVAL!!*******

How to avoid PayPal conversion fee

When it comes to foreign transactions, PayPal defaults to use itself for converting rates in UK Sterling after adding a margin to their conversion rate.

Not only does it hide the "Not To Convert" option well, it also gives a false illusion that one may change the option when reaching PayPal's payment landing page. Even their customer feedback form has been made so difficult to submit any problem with screenshots. Their reply is equally pathetic that one has to start over again as they do not appear to even read the screenshots, as if the problem were just user error!

To avoid their conversion rate (eg, if you have Halifax Clarity card that does not add their own conversion margin), you must set it up first by going to :

paypal.com/uk/…hub

It lists all credit cards on record. Click the "Conversion Options" for the credit card in question.
Select "Bill me in the currency listed on the seller's invoice"
click Submit
Logout

Now you can shop online without paying extra to PayPal. In the PayPal payment landing page, "Pay With" now shows $XX.YY USD, instead of a £ amount.

Blimey, just paid that for the std X5.
I think my wife was just talking about the Doogee the other night.

I'm sure I heard her mention something about the Doogee style.

Yes, my wife accused me of having sex behind her back the other night to which I replied who did you think it was?

How do you get £37.57 delivered??


£40.34 here as well. It's probably conversion rate?
Comes out at 40.34 and also at checkout you can choose faster shipping for free (5-10 days)

Are you being charged £37 or £40?

With regards to the £37.57 asking price that's what Gearbest are quoting but it all depends on the conversion rate of your chosen method. Paypal has a horrible conversion rate but a credit card like Halifax Clarity has a great conversion rate.

Careful with going for faster shipping as it has much more chance of being picked by Customs!

Whoops

Whoops didn't know that will keep fingers crossed
This is an outrageous bargain. If I didn't already have a similar spec K3 Note I'd be all over it.
Can highly recommend this Case and Glass Screen Protector

More likely it was you, snarf snarf. I said to Mrs topazz the other day that she never tells me when she is having an orgasm. She replied that she doesn't like phoning me when i'm at work. oO
mine packed up after a month ,going back to banggood, who are paying half of postage cost. Has anyone's x5pro packed up or did i just get a dud?
whats the camera like on this. good specs but need better camera.
Original Poster
Camera is apparently the only letdown. But.....it's £38! What can you expect?
Edited by: "bellboys" 11th Jan 2016
I bought the standard x5 at roughly this price on another deal here a few months back. Don't regret it at all, great phone, bit plasticy but get a decent cover and you're set. Camera is dogpoop mind you but I wasnt expecting much.
will you get hit with customs charges?
Good deal but the 'pro' is only a minor upgrade from the standard one. However it has 4G and is a good price for a quality phone. That said, I cannot get mine to work with a Virginmedia Superhub router for more than a short time.

I previously brought one from Bang good and had same issue (Was White version) managed to get all my money back and they paid all the shipping costs too (Will say tho that the claim process was crap and you had to have pics / video of the issues)

Hoping this one will work right 1st time

'Twas me. The 'workaround' was to use a BT wifi extender which sort of solves the problem.

Minor upgrade? Twice the storage, twice the RAM and 4G added. And this is actually cheaper than the standard X5. Crikey, there's no pleasing some folk.:p

Fair comment. It just doesn't amount to a Pro in my view

Not usually; they ship either NL post (which it registers having come from Holland) or with "UK/British Express" which is Yodel and supposedly comes from Hayes, Mdx (at least that's what has always happened with my stuff when they send- just failed to get $269 back from them through Paypal- time for a chargeback on the credit card as suggested by Paypal). They also use Yodel to ship from their UK warehouse.

​ I'm having the same problem with my homtom ht6 which is made by doogee
Anyone know if this phone would be good for VR? I've got an elephone p7000 at the mo which doesn't have a gyro sensor so doesn't work.

​ can you send us a link please on how you sorted it out.cheers
Are these refurbished ?
Original Poster
Doubt it. IIRC I've never seen refurbs sold by Gearbest?
Ordered - needed a phone to use on holiday in easter and had been looking at this - £40 (approx) you cant go wrong surely?
Hmm, no NFC and no wireless charging?
If so my nexus 4 lives another day.

Love that micro SD slot tho. And at the price would probably take a punt on this over say the nexus 5x.
will this take an SD card?

Yes.
