Gearbest - No warranty , no customer service - No thanks

Not true on either count.Yes if it develops a fault then you have choices …Not true on either count.Yes if it develops a fault then you have choices ot make different to the UK.usually you are offered to keep it and take a discount credit, or you can send it to China at your cost for repair.Gearbest have always been quick to answer any questions I've had and solve any issues.Seems a great spec for a good price.


Absolute rubbish, they totally ignore you and you have to get paypal to enforce a refund
Never spend more on a Gearbest item than you are prepared to lose. If that sounds like the same advice that is given to gamblers, there is a very good reason why!

But never a full refund or replacement (if they even bother to reply )

No I'll agree with you there, a refund isn't something they want to offer.
I had a faulty IP camera dead on arrival I sent them a video they sent me a replacement.

I've spent quite a bit of money with them and it was my first complaint so that maybe is why they were so helpful.

Judging by the likes to the comments it would seem a lot of people have had problems with them though.

I had much the same problems with Virgin Mobile in the UK. My windows phone developed problems in the first month. Virgin CS were pants imo. Long story short, it was never repaired or replaced to my satisfaction and it out me off virgin and windows phones for life. Never again. But I'll take a punt on a phone from China soon.
I've had big problems with Philips and Vodafone so I wouldn't want to deal with those companies again so I can understands the the feelings towards Gearbest if people have had problems.

Back to the deal seems a decent price have some heat
I've only ever used Banggood & Aliexpress and have nothing but praise for them. Is Gearbest worse or are they all the same at the end of the day?
Back to the phone lol..........


Great phone , got mine on the vodafone deal on here a while back, only recently upgrades to a xiaomi, battery ace, great phone for the price.


For those who want a UK phone I just got this for my lass , seems just as good...carphonewarehouse.com/hua…tml?cid=PAIDSEARCH_Google_1013639958_48607054743_aud-488816790672:pla-394025200741&gclid=CjwKCAiA_ojVBRAlEiwAOLRxI_QoUtPn8ytos-a5jWn0dP-e3HjdinQmWgOI4DNbR1_yuq_ko2BbeBoCu3gQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds#!propsId=20634923
Need a decent camera and dual sim for my OH, this seems to fit the bill but gearbest....

Is it easy enough to get a paypal refund if it all goes wrong?

EDIT: Just remembered the lite doesn't have the good camera!

reminds me once , Phillips,when my grandma TV head phones , battery went dead , so i ordered aaa recharge batteries from there website, wanted official ones and was about 7 quid with 3 quid post and packing , which I thought bit high for AAA battery but oka ,then parcel came and i found out it was just one battery, i emailed them saying why send just one battery on the website when it takes two and for that price, bit useless,in the end i just got them from wilko for 3 quid 😁
Another Chinese deal, another rogparki moan.
I own the P9 lite and the P8 lite 2017 and like them both. The P8 lite is the better phone to me as the finger print reader is annoyingly inaccurate on the P9 lite. You can get the the P8 lite 2017 sim free for £129.99 at Carphonewarehouse.

A phone I ordered from gearbest did not turn up and I did not receive a refund. They did however give me 5 dollars store credit.

Is this really a good deal bearing in mind the risks?

Always use something like Paypal when shopping on these sites - they are so much more responsive when you indicate your willingness to raise a dispute through Paypal.

You have been previously informed about UK-based S75 replicated merchant obligations yet appear to choose to ignore that benefit. For a £100+ item simply pay this (or any other) merchant directly via UK credit card to benefit from UK-based and UK-enforceable replicated merchant delivery and warranty obligations provided by UK credit card company. In the case of Gearbest, the warranty equates to 12months merchant warranty serviced in UK. Once you make the credit card payment you need never contact the merchant ever again. Your dislike of Far East merchants is noted, but maybe consider future comments being more helpful, balanced and informative. Some easy-read S75 info here: moneysavingexpert.com/sho…ses

Xiaomi Mi A1 has a decent dual 12 MP camera. I'm keeping an eye out for the redmi note 5 pro.

I am unlikely to ever buy a phone from them again but thank you for your advice. Will remember for the future.

You have been informed (on many occasions ) that Section 75 and Paypal protection are mutually exclusive . Additionally you must also know that getting a refund /repair through this route is like herding cats and can take months as these Chinese sellers use every trick in the book to avoid their responsibilities .

Yes you are correct legally , but I am sure you have read the hundreds of complaints of how they try to avoid refunds and repairs .

The fact you mislead members into believing it is a simple "autofill " solution with Paypal or your CC company when problems occur does you no credit - I presume you are a "barrack room lawyer" who has never been through the process ?

Members are free to choose what level of risk they wish to take , but please stop telling less savvy members that they are 100% protected , claiming S75 protection is not a simple straightforward process as you must surely be aware .

Perhaps you are an employee of or incentivised by one or more of these Chinese sellers as many HUKD commenters are ?

Otherwise why not just make members aware of the risk (as I do ) and inform them they may get redress under S75 after jumping through several hoops .

Some comments , by certain members, go well beyond a cautious recommendation

I have recently found myself that credit card protection is not as straight forward as I had always believed. You have to prove breach of contract etc, in the case of faulty goods you could be asked for an engineers report etc, not just a case of claim and get your money back.
The p9 lite is long in the tooth now. And why buy a UK release phone off a dodgy seller in China. This is cold for me as 130 gets you a p8 lite from a trusted UK retail shop and if your going china anyway you'd be better off with a Xiaomi. No point buying this

Yeah sounds like them (Philips) I'm not a big fan, I went on there website not long ago very difficult to find there customer service or a phone number and when I did email them from there email link I got a message back saying the email address did not exist.

I don't disagree and went the Xiaomi (A1) route myself (still available for £135 from a deal listed). But I know the p9 is highly regarded on here and this was the cheapest I'd seen it.

I think you are right but it was nearly this over a year ago at cpw before the p8 lite 2017 was out that was the time to buy it not now when the newer model has nearly been this. Sorry I'll have to disagree because a deal is also about being on the right phone at the right time not just because it is slightly cheaper now. Cold from me
this deal is just cool, as now new product launched from Huawei that is Honor 9 lite great gadget. should consider that one instead of this one.
