I wonder why they called it the S8??

Been keeping my eye on this one for a while, and now that it's up for pre-order, banggood have came through with a cracking price for those that get in early.

ARM Cortex A-53 Processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage, TF Card Support, 5.72" LCD IPS Screen at 282ppi, rear Sony 13MP dual camera, and front 8MP dual Camera, all for under £100 quid! Crazy if you ask me.

Use code 'leagoos8' at checkout!

720 resolution on a 5.7 screen, 282ppi, it's not going to look good...

is it an edge display like the Samsung these Chinese companys do a lot of photoshopping, having seen some of the so called bezel less phones my TV has smaller bezels!

Will this discount code work? Amazing phone for price. Any deals on this pro version? leagoo.com/lea…on/

Cold not an S8...oh hang on....

Voted hot. B20 supported

Wonder if the gps is any good

Looks a very nice phone for the price - hot

Pre-order? When is it released and how soon will it arrive?

I am sorely tempted by this. What about customs and is this phone going to be any good?

I have a leagoo shark and a leagoo m8, GPS on both is spot on.

agree

Is a dual front and rear camera either:-

One camera at the front and another at the back

OR

2x at the front and 2x at the back??

Unlike the blatant copy of the Galaxy S8, don't think this has curved edge display (contrary to how the image is made to appear). But for the price, does it matter?

Never if my recent experience (and a very long while if my general experience) with Banggood are anything to go by. My RN4G was due to dispatch 30th Sept, it didn't, they went on holiday for a week & as retribution for telling them I wasn't impressed, the stroppy customer services person cancelled my order.

That said they may have done me a favour - now expected 26th October - will it ever arrive may be a better question!

Banggood parcels are also rumoured to be getting hit for customs more & more compared to other vendors.

The Vernee Mix 2 looks a better buy

But that is substantially more (though at least not from BG).

How long warranty?
And gotta ship it off to China again to get it repaired?

No it looks very good. I bought another similar chinese Cubot phone with similar screen.

Do they also have a working compass?

Shark does, m8 doesn't.

Wonder if this S8 has?

More than likely that a crap brand like this will have fake RAM in it and a CPU that reports itself faster than it actually is.

Run a proper benchmarking test and realise you've been duped into buying a phone with hardware from 2011 in it.

Stick to the better known brands if buying from China like Xiaomi or Doogee etc.

My Moto G4 is dying on me, so the M8 looks like a good alternative.
I tried the Doogee Max Pro and the GPS is awful! Homtom, the same problem, so it's good to hear that there is a Chinese phone which has GPS which actually works..!

but you have quoted several times that cubot are filled with malware. So are cubot okay to buy now?

All the publicity pictures are clearly fake.
The video trailer on Banggood clearly shows bezels on the left and right of the screen.
Makes you wonder what else is fake about this device.

For the price It's ok as a spear phone or kid use,don't think will buying it as main use

Did any of what you said have any factual content at all or was it just speculation and tittle tattle. Provide some evidence for what you're saying, man.

if you are unlucky , customs may apply a charge , total would be £11.50. Cant comment on the dog & bone though as I don't have it and any reviews on here are likely just speculation anyway as this is a pre-order.

kimovil.com/en/…utu

Antutu score of 43568. With those reported specs you should be getting at least 80,000
Doogee Mix which can be obtained in deals for 20-30 more has 85000

Ordered this and current tracking suggests it's with Swiss Post and/or Asendia:

October 13 17:36 Exported from the departure country Asendia Hong Kong

I presume this means it's departed customs and 'on it's way' - but I gather this may not be a direct flight over the course of a day or so and will probably be held up amongst other consignments in warehouses waiting for cargo space etc.
That's all fine and I'm not stressing over receiving it right away, but what are Banggood's current delivery times like?

We talking a couple of weeks for a phone or should I realistically expect to wait a little longer?

They shipped yours already Steevio?

Yeah looks like it. I got this update around 10am this morning I think. I used packageradar which seems to hold a better level of tracking

just made an impulse purchase, quidco tracked also

That's simply not true.

Doogee Mix 1 & 2 have MT6757T (Helio P25), which is 4 x 2.5GHz per core + 4 x 1.4GHz and that scores 65K on antutu.

This uses the MT6750T which is 4 x 1.5GHz + 4 x 1.0GHz. So it's clearly considerably slower.




Doogee y6 uses the same CS as the Leagoo and achieves broadly the same values.

I think you might be overly-suspicious of this due to bad data. Seems like a fine phone for the money - I mean I would choose the Xiaomi redmi note 4 over this any day of the week due to the software, better performance, great battery, full HD screen etc. But it's about £25 more expensive, so this seems spot-on for the asking price if you ask me.

The Blackview S8 looks the same and due out at the same time.

Banggood.com do not comply with UK consumer laws. Plus delivery can be up to 28 days which they told me after I ordered - it says 1-2 days, then 6-8 days on its website. Order at your peril!
