​hopefully none, but that's the risk you take when buying outside of eu

​and another in the images gallery... 'i ordered this phone and got screws'. looks like someone substituted his phone in transit for a similar sized box of screws then let the box continue its travels.

i worked for a company selling IT equipment around europe. we once had a pallet of boxed of rewritable cds which were shipped to italy. all packed and wrapped on camera...all there when they left the factory. when they arrived in italy still looked wrapped and unopened. Again taken off the lorry and opened all on security camera...all the boxes in the middle of the pallet had been removed and replaced with boxes of biscuits in transit (something cheap to keep the integrity of the pallet). unbelievable.

point taken, ​hope I don't get screw(ed) oO i can always raise a dispute if needed, also the seller has over 7000 feedbacks, 96.7℅ positive, so I'm reasonable assured

its the couriers that nick stuff...not ali express. make sure youve used a visa card for purchases over 100 quid.

im tempted...but a lot of these generic phones are iphone plus clones , and most people i know actually have an i phone plus so id get a bit of stik for that. and i currently have a 2k screen and wouldnt be keen to step back down to a 1k screen.

plenty you tube videos showing it in the flesh, including the fingerprint sensor on the side.

​err none!

anything under £135 doesn't qualify!


Sorry for the silly question but where do we get the coupon from?

Gearbeast have this for £143 delivered.

Also, they have the UMI Max Android 6.0 Smartphone for £154.84 delivered - UK stock. It looks the same as the Vernee Mars but I'd assume be delivered quicker

​it's $238 at gearbest? and that other phone looks similar, but has several different specs

This offer might need resurrecting.

One seller is about to be part of their latest '7th sale' in 2 days, and the price is supposed to be $143.99 = £118 (currently £131). And if TCB/Quidco tracks then its even less.

I bought from Gearbest, it came much quicker than stated, seemingly from the UK? by Yodel. No duties as under £135.

Also came with a UK adaptor for the EU 2-pin charger, and the phone has a film screen protector.

Issues. I have a few niggles;

It refused to see my 64gb SD card saying it was corrupt, so must be formatted, meant the transfer of files was a bit of a pain, but up and running now.

Also the SIM tray is quite hard to get out, you can easily push the pin past the place it's meant to push and right into the phone! I thought my sim was stuck for good, but have now worked it out.

Finally the fingerprint is brilliantly quick when it works, but that's about 50% of the time.

Love the feel of the phone, sturdy and quality feel.Camera seems good even in low light.

OS is lightning quick.

I had trouble getting Google Now Launcher working, but it works from the choosing a wallpaper widget screen, how odd.
