Heat - Worth £35

Finger print scanner, new processor, 4g, decent screen and large battery, Dual Sim, Micro SD for £35 and new OS

Is this for EU warehouse? If not, any idea of custom duty?
Damn!!!!
£35 for a 5.5 inch 720p smartphone????

Cheaper than an a bedside alarm clock X)

Might keep it under the pillow and run Kodi while the missus is sleeping
I ordered this in April and cancelled as it didn't arrive.

Dear mymymy,
This is Gearbest Store Rep. Alice
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience brought to you
Could you please PM me details if what i can do for you ?
Hope to hear from you if you need any help
Best regards,
Alice
Guys DO NOT ORDER from Gearbest, you will either receive a broken item or not receive your order at all. I ordered a tablet that arrived with the screen smashed up due to poor packaging. The item was sent from EU warehouse but they gave me a China return address which was almost the same price as the tablet. I lost my money and now in possession of a broken tablet that never worked. PayPal didn't help either. They should ban Gearbest in the interest of their customers. I know it dead cheap but save yourself the hassle. Chances of getting these preorders are slim.

I will continue warning people to avoid Gearbest.
I've never had a problem with them
hot good specs for 35 quid, nothing similar is cheaper so any nonsense moaning about 1gb , certain bands, etc etc is just silly

It's a good price, but the 1GB RAM does kill it because Android, especially the later versions run much better with more. Apart from that it's great.

ive ordered from gearbest in the past and never had a problem - had 1 item lost in transit but no problem getting a refund. £35 for this phone seems a good deal - yes its from china and could involve additional customs charges ( possible £20 x 20% vat and £8 postoffice fee so might involve a £ 12 charge - if so then would cost £47 which is still a good price)

Do let us know if Alice and Gearest customer service are indeed able to help in any way at all, ngangekrubally. I've also got my doubts Gearbest based on similar bad experience and it will be interesting to know if Alice is truly trying to help aggrieved customers or simply saying so in public for damage limitation purposes.

Never noticed any issues at all with 1GB RAM on my Moto G 4G running 6.01.

​but it's not alive.... just saying

Agreed, 1GB RAM is pointless for a new phone. It is already painful, and will be unbearable soon.

it says despatch on 2nd july ?



You asking or you can't read? I guess I'm wasting my time if it's the latter.

yip 1GB ram is a no no
Expire, as code no longer works.
Very strange spec. Slow CPU/GPU, small RAM and storage, 5.5" screen yet only 720p.

It is cheap but I'd say the Ulephone in the other thread offers better bang per buck:

I too had awful customer service from Gearbest. Mobile phone was dead after 24 hrs. I was offered a partial refund or I could return but would need to pay return postage to China. Absolute joke!

Ye do not order from Gearbest, I ordered 3times and all 3 times the things got delivered to me.

I am mightily upset by this 100% delivery record. I will right to my mp.
Coupon/Code has used its usage limits
I had been ordered more than ten items with gearbest and very satisfied with them, even couples times items never turn up but they refunded straight away.
Can anyone tell me if there's a good Chinese Android phone out there which is not huge (i.e. not a phablet) but which has an octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and 128GB-expandable storage, please?
How does this compare with the Doogie X5 Pro
