Very impressive specs for the price. Never heard of this make though.

Sorry, meant band 20.

These should be in the £130s now as the newer models come out, & also have been posted for a little less a few months ago, when it appeared they were trying to get rid of them.

They have has been posted several times in the past (not quite as much as Xiaomi & similar better-known FE-brands):

I've had one since pre-order in Feb and it's a cracking phone (ordered to replace the rose gold 32GB version which I lovingly passed on to my wife). I still can't see anything with comparable specs anywhere near this price point so have a load of heat from me.

I have one myself. Specs are fantastic. The sound on the supplied CDLA headphones is amazing. The best I've heard on a phone. Stock rom is terrible and updates have been extremely slow, not even sure at this point if official nougat is being released. The company are not saying anything. I was considering selling it myself until I flashed the Pure Nexus rom with blackscreen kernel. The device is extremely fast and responsive now. Was only getting about 3hrs screen time with stock rom, with nexus+blackscreen I'm getting 6hrs screentime.

Good to know. Pity, once you root any phone & install a custom rom, banking & similar apps don't work. If they did, I'd have gone for one.

​agreed, it's too much headache.

although I did see a tool that hides it's rooted status from apps, but it was quite a bit involved and wasn't a set and forget scenario, so I let it be and decided rooting a phone isn't for me. I now only get a phone I know I will be happy with even if updates aren't coming for a while.
I generally have very low expectations from companies as I have seldom had excellent customer service, so now I just buy very very carefully.

It's possible you could flash a rom, relock the bootloader and then use Magisk to hide the root. Although I haven't tested it myself.

I see, but wish it was guaranteed to work.

How's the fingerprint scanner? I've read a lot of people are suffering from their FPS not detecting any print and it just dying on them completely.

I've no no issue with the FP scanner. When the phone sleeps it takes a little bit longer. Doesn't bother me one bit.

My FP scanner works as expected on both of my x829s, not as quickly as my mi max though fast enough. Happily recommend the phone.
