This phone looks really good, I've looked at others, like the Maze Alpha and the Vernee Mix 2, but this one has a decent chip, decent camera, decent sound and good screen resolution. Am I missing something, or is this actually decent?

What's the price including VAT & Customs duty?

Very in depth review here

Youtube Review by GizmoJoe

A highlight for me, was his chat about the shutter speed, which seems to have been resolved with an OTA update. But he still has reservations about the camera, the battery and there is no 3.5mm headphone jack, they do include a dongle for using the USB type C connector for standard headphones. But for the price, and yes, it's a mediatek processor, but one of the higher end Helio processors, it seems ok.

and more importantly;

Network type: FDD-LTE,GSM,TDD-LTE,WCDMA
2G: GSM 1800MHz,GSM 1900MHz,GSM 850MHz,GSM 900MHz
3G: WCDMA B1 2100MHz,WCDMA B8 900MHz
4G LTE: FDD B1 2100MHz,FDD B20 800MHz,FDD B3 1800MHz,FDD B7 2600MHz,TDD B38 2600MHz,TDD B40 2300MHz.

If its sent by China Post possibly no charges, don't send via the faster sevice using DHL that will cost you approx £30 extra. I found to my own cost last week a purchase of £23 cost me an additional £16. As this is a deals site there should be more warnings on deals from China if they cost more than £15, the trigger amount for customs.

When do you find out if you get a customs charge ? I bought a tablet from gearbest and was delivered 3 days ago . No charge up to now

AFAIK you find out when customs stop delivery on entry to the UK and you get a letter. I could be wrong though.

Was actually watching a review of this phone on unbox thearpy youtube channel this morning... seems like an excellent phone for the price. Only concern would be shipping, but heat added!
