Is this phone the antidote to the iPhone X?

First the spec list for the M-Net Power 1...

Display: 5.0 inch 1280 x 720 Pixel IPS screen
CPU: MTK6580A 1.3GHz Quad Core
System: Android 7.0
RAM + ROM:1GB RAM + 8GB ROM
Camera: 5.0MP front camera + 5.0MP back cameras
Sensor: Ambient Light Sensor, Gravity Sensor, Proximity Sensor
SIM Card: dual SIM dual standby. Dual Nano SIM Cards or 1 Nano SIM Card and 1 TF Card
Feature: GPSA / GPS
Bluetooth:4.0
Network:
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz
Battery: 5050 mAh


So the cons are the 1GB of RAM and lack of 4G. It will also be quite slow.

The pros are, Android 7, a big battery, an SD card slot and of course the price!

So if you're in the market for a phone that you don't mind losing while you're drunk or dropping in the swimming pool or accidentally flushing down the bog, this might be for you!

Awesome. Buy this instead of iPhone X and have spare cash to buy a car.

Decent & honest review of the M-Net Power 1 here (he was rather impressed by what you can get for fifty bucks!)

Not trying be that guy, but this looks like a better option for anyone seriously considering a phone in this price range.
How long will it take to deliver UK 🇬🇧

Had a quick look and this one has better camera and almost twice the battery, the rest being similar, care to expand what does yours have better?
Pretty big battery for this price!

Better camera is debatable tbh.

Having had experience of 5 different Blackview phones in the past 12 months I know they're a decent manufacturer that produces solid devices. Like an upper league 1 or lower Championship level. I've never heard of this manufacturer so you'd be taking a bit of a punt in that regard.

Obviously the specs are there for you to make your own judgement and I've not actually used either device, was just offering another option
I have an iphone 6s and a elephone that i got for £80 a year ago and the difference is not that much
Spotted this last night. Don't see high capacity removable batteries so much these days.

Hot from me.

Now try telling that to other iPhone owners and let us know how they reacted.

In the 1990s in knew people who purchased watches for £2000+ humans have the free will to make their own choice, if i had the option of any phone i would still choose an iphone for my children who are under 14 i would choose a phone like on this thread.

Of course everybody has the right to make their own choice,
but that doesn't mean everybody makes the right choice.

Okay. Looks like it's been and gone now. Will expire. If anyone managed to get one at the low price, I hope you enjoy your new phone.
