This is a great phone. I have one here for testing and I'm very impressed. Android One too.

What are you most pleased with? I think the overall build quality on the 7.1 is great and you're right - Android One makes it pretty snappy and unbloated. Impressed by the pics it takes, too.

The reassurance of guaranteed security updates for at least another couple of years is brilliant!
Is the battery any better than the 3.1?
Good price if brand new.

As a package, I think it's great. A nice metal build, slim profile, good screen, great OS. Specs similar to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 but with nicer build and Android One

... plus very good camera for the money, premium feel, average battery life is only weakness.

Great deal I'd normally congratulate OP but this seller has been found previously on HUKD to advertise used phones as never used, just a heads-up, see following thread as example

The battery is the weak point of this phone by all accounts, not sure how it compares to the 3.1 though

My 3.1 lasts about 5 hours with continuous use.
Had the phone several months now. Nice phone and does everything I want. Only downside is I don't think WiFi reception is particularly good. At least compared to my old Wileyfox which this phone replaced. In my kitchen the old Wiley never had issues picking up WiFi. This phone sometimes cannot connect at all and I have to bounce the WiFi to try and convince it to connect. When it does it still a poor connection.
That said all the other features of the phone, especially fingerprint reader, still make this a good phone for the money.
Version 10 Android due for this phone q4 2019 too!

Yeah I've heard battery is reasonable/satisfactory but it's still the weakest link as screen and camera etc very good for the cash.

Also unsure how it compares to the 3.1

Thanks for the heads up...shame I'd already ordered!
I'll let you know how I get on.
It also highlights the problem with e bay. I recently ordered a phone that was fraudulently sold under the Music Magpie banner. Turns out they were in China! 5 weeks, no phone, no contact so reported it. Got an immediate refund but was not allowed to warn others about the seller, or leave a negative rating, which is ludicrous.

Some eBay sellers' dirty tricks come out... thanks to HUKD

(eBay should be grateful)
Edited by: "xavierluther" 23rd Sep
Well, I received mine this morning (Wed) via DHL having ordered Mon afternoon.
The box had been resealed with two discreet pieces of sellotape, no stickers and just a small crease in the corner of the box which isn't an issue.
The phone doesn't have a mark on it, it does indeed look brand new, however I do think it has been used.
The phone has 3/4 charge and bluetooth has been enabled. The protective film on the screen has been removed, the sim tool is missing and the charger and cable are missing their plastic wrappings. Headphones are still sealed up and the instructions are intact.
Apart from that, it all looks perfect. The only issue is whether or not that constitutes the description ' opened- never used' which obviously isn't the case. Bearing in mind what it cost, I'm happy to keep it.
Hope this helps.

Apologies Paul, I'm a bit slow today lol, manic day at work... Cheers mate and sounds like they've been a bit naughty saying its new, when you're describing more of an A grade used phone... I think you're making the right call to keep it as at that price for an A grade 'almost' new phone, its still a good deal imo. I wonder if you complained about a false description, if they'd knock a tenner off or something?

Well, I'll give it a go!
You're right though, they are being naughty. I thought about getting one for she -who-must-be-obeyed so I will message them first pointing out the phone has been used, that the next one better not be and what chance of a discount.

Yeah, defo keep us posted mate . Definitely worth asking them for discount and like you say, saying you'll order another providing its exactly the same as their description of it this time! And if you can get some brownie points off of 'she-who-must-be-obeyed' as well, that's always a big bonus!

Hi, I received the phone today but it has clearly been used; the screen protector is missing as is the sim tool, the charger has been used and the phone has had the Bluetooth function enabled. I am happy with the condition of the phone, but it is certainly not as described, i .e ' never used'
I was going to order another once I had the opportunity to look at this one but bearing in mind the fact that this is clearly a misleading description, can you guarantee one that hasn't been used and can you offer me some discount bearing in mind I didn't receive what I had expected?

From the seller..
techsave2006(35,694)Good afternoon

This does not come with a screen protector and is not advertised as including one. Screen protectors can be purchased online for as little as £1. We will send a replacement SIM PIN tool to you in the post. The item will have been removed from the box for checking purposes as per advertised. If you are unhappy with the phone then we do offer a 30 day return policy

Also, this was already purchased with a discount so we are unable to offer anything for the issues you have stated


I pointed out that the screen protector I mentioned is the one all new devices come with, the glorified sticker not a screen protector, per se. Note how they make no reference at all to my point that the phone is actually used.
So the conclusion is that the chances are you are NOT going to get an unused phone, but if you are lucky, as Xav pointed out, you will get an A grade phone.
But it's still false advertising and very naughty of them and EBay who have been told of their behaviour before.

It is naughty as even though they are saying you already got a discount, you were supposed to get a discount on a new phone, not an A grade phone (although in reality the difference is probably slight it's still a difference). They obviously know they falsely advertise and offer a decent return policy to covers the customers that are dissatisfied - knowing most customers will see quality is still overall excellent and keep. For me, if I got an A grade rather than brand new, to be honest if it is mark free I would be totally happy if the price was right. But its a matter of principle. Ebay tolerating it is also a little shady.

But hopefully the bottom line is you still got a good phone at a good price. The question is, are you still going to get the 'other half' one? :/

Good on ya' for tryin' Paul!
