Used an homtom for 18 months, works great

This phone looks great apart from the very strange screen resolution 1440x720. Can see many app rendering issues arising

Great phone but the screen resolution is strange and not great. Also lack of NFC is a deal killer for me as I use my phone to pay for stuff.

No, it's just an HD (not full or quad HD) version of the similar to S8 display - it'll be fine. 720p is actually fine, I'd prefer more but it just means great battery life and performance.

​Referring to the fact HD is normally 1280 x 720p. This is 1440 x 720p, therefore unusual.

Was all for this - cancelled my order for a Note 4 Global, but seems that this processor is not the fastest. Anyone any experience of it (especially in this configuration, i.e 4GB ram & Android 7)?

Yes and I meant you won't get any rendering issues as it's close to the aspect ratio adopted by the S8, one of the most of wildly-popular handsets out at the moment, worst case black bars but that's it. But really I mean I wouldn't discount the handset for that alone

MTK6750 it's a mid-rage rather than high-end processor. I think MTK6750T is an upgrade over the standard MTK6750, but no idea how this performs compared to a Note 4 Global.

This is a fair bit dearer (approx £10-£20), yet the note 4 is about 20K ahead on Antutu (40K vs near 61K kimovil.com/en/…2gb).


Still tempted by this, but also regret cancelling the note 4.

EDIT: SD625 is also mid range - the LG G6 hits 140K IIRC.
