Three uses 800Mhz/1800Mhz for it's 4G service, so yes it should work.

how good do you think these phones will be for that price?

seems a decent spec for the money. There was an older deal for a smilier model which only had 1GB/8GB memory. This has double, so take a look at some of the comments…..

Or for hardware specs:

HT17 Pro:

http://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-homtom-ht17-pro

If it's too new to be on willmyphonework, match up the LTE bands listed on Kimovil with:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mobile_network_operators_of_Europe#United_Kingdom

So HT17 has 800, 1800, 2100 2600, Three needs 800, 1800 so you're good to go.

OK a just a 'yes' might have sufficed but this might help others in future.

Yeah those are the specs. What about your own experience with the phone? Screen quality? Battery life? Camera? Thanks man

​have not really used it much as bought a timmy and a leagoo shark at the same time. on standby with wi-fi turned off and a 3 sim in it battery lasts at least 4 days, as a sat nav it's OK.

Haven't got it but have got the Oukitel Universe Tap (U8) I listed a bit lower down.

Quick review, bit dated now on Android Lollipop but feels fairly solid and 'premium', battery life seems decent enough. Can't manage to 'root' it and speaker a bit tinny though pretty loud. Good budget buy at around £60 I reckon.

Also Ebay may be worth a check, some make and models of phone turn up cheaper there.

i read this as Hotmom at first lol

heat added decent spec for the price.

I have this phone everything but battery life is great I have brought an external charger and a couple of extra battery's and I find it fine. be aware though early versions of this phone come with malware pre installed there is a thread on XDA make sure you update to a newer firmware (you can do this OTA)

How about talk talk network?

I bought my mother a Homtom HT7 Pro a few months ago.

Apart from a few bits of dodgy build quality and sharp corners, these are not bad phones for the price.

I've ordered 3 things from Gearbest, all arrived no problems. One item was a Cubot phone, worked great for 2 weeks then packed up. Took 3 weeks to convice them it was broken, they told me to send it back to China as cheaply as possible to avoid customs even though I bought it from the EU warehouse. After 6 weeks waiting I emailed them, they said without a tracking number they could do nothing, I told them what the email said about sending it back cheaply and they basicly said no tracking number means they can do nothing and regard it as lost.
So cheap prices, good delivery but rubbish customer services and returns.

wow nice good to see 2gb of ram

If it works fine, if it stops working chuck it in the bin, not worth sending back, as they will do anything to avoid repairing or replacing, my phone worked for a week, and stopped never to go again, I sent it back, cheaply but tracked to their offices, emailed them and they said they never received it, luckily I had used Paypal and after haggling with them, they paid me back, so all ended well for me. (Phone is reasonable just not the vendor)

Just ordered to replace a dying IPhone 4s.

I'm taking it that I should notice some improvement?

If it works fine, if it stops working chuck it in the bin.



It's very resource intensive to produce these devices, especially the mining of rare earth metals that these phones use, which doesn't just badly damage the environment but also has low ethical workplace standards, in some cases some of the nastiest work is done by children. It's best to carefully consider what you're buying because of this in my opinion, rather than just buy whatever is cheap and throw it in the bin if it doesn't work as intended.

Ordered and heat added. Worried about the customs duty on it. Paid by Paypal so should be covered against loss in transit. Had to use the mobile site as the full website showed price as £71.58.
Edited by: "Razi" 1st Sep 2016

Any experience with AlieExpress instead?
They dont use PayPal but use VISA directly
and an extra 2-3pound 1year Replacement Warranty via Spain.

This phone is available on Amazon UK as well. But the reviews are very bad so not worth buying

Recycled mine by sending it them back, bought a Dogee x6 Pro through Amazon, which I am happy with, the comment refers to Gearbest.

I bought this when it was on here for about £35. It's a really good phone, partly thanks to Android 6 giving it good features. The camera isn't very good but something had to give on a phone this cheap with good spec elsewhere. You even get a screen protect and clear case included in the box! Fingerprint sensor works really well

It's £75 on there but as it's fulfilled by Amazon you can always send it back. No import duty to worry about either.

TT uses 800Mhz, so yes. As far as I can tell, all 4G operators in the UK are covered with the bands this phone has.

Edited by: "topss" 1st Sep 2016

Any suggestions for a case for this?

Does this mobile support TalkTalk & Lebara network ?

Just ordered one, and the status is now "processing" . any idea how long it would take to be delivered in UK

ah... Homtom. That well known brand along with Hamsung and Hony.
