Or God help if you don't know how to check the information from reviews.

"The current Android 7.0 version is installed without additional bloatware on the smartphone. Apparently Oukitel uses its own icons for the standard apps that are installed on the device. Positive: the Google services are available as delivered, which is not a given for smartphones from the Far East. Kaspersky Internet Security did not find any Trojans or other malware. Many devices from China have root-rights activated as delivered, which prevents for example banking apps from running or sometimes even being installed. We did not find any problems here as well. Merely the developer mode was turned on. "

Android 7 is all it will get cause it'll never get an update lol


So what? I've only just stopped using a Samsung Galaxy S2. The lack of updates for the OS never caused me any grief using it and I barely noticed the difference between it and my more recent tablet.
It's £90 - for what you get it's a hot deal I'm voting hot

Bah! Time to chuck in some random comments about 'China' / 'No updates' / 'Snooping' / 'We're all gonna die', so AVOID THIS PHONE!

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and been stuck on Android 6.0.1 for year(s). So, this with Android 7 is a good deal.

Android AOSP FTW! Discover a world free of vendor lock-ins, restrictions and bloatware.
Can get it delivered from a European warehouse for a few quid more as well, therefore negating any chance of extra customs charges. Hot.
That's not even a valid CE mark on the back of the phone lmao.

Except, when you choose any of the EU distribution options it says that it can't deliver to the UK.
I bought the Oukitel K7000 last year. It was a bad buy as the colour screen had a washed look after around 3 months. I contacted customer services several times but received no reply. I wouldn't buy another Oukitel product again.
Great value but flimsy hardware makes it difficult to recommend when coming from China.

You realise that with the comment, you have succeeded in your clearly programmed mission of destroying all of your credibility.

The S2 *was* a stunning phone

I am still running a Huawei P1 that is stuck on Android 4.2. The lack of updates is definitely causing issues with various apps not working on this version. Mind you, so is the age of the phone!!
I have one of these phones. I would recommend it to anyone. Good battery life and very stable. Ignore the other idiot moaning about cheap chinese phones. For the spec and price you cannot go wrong.
Cannot find full specifications for this , is it all UK networks ?
Chinese phones are excellent value for noney the only problem I have found is getting replacement parts (digitizers) and gps fixing (although newer mediatek processors are seemingly taking a step In the right direction)

Yes - has all the main ones for 2G/3G/4G, including the usually missing 4G B20 (800Mhz):
(below taken from Gearbest's specs):
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz

If you choose an expedited delivery such as DHL then you are pretty certain to pay.

Snail mail route using Royal Mail means less of a chance.
Anyone having trouble ordering - I have been getting "Payment failed" & "Service not available" (not this item). : (

Edit - at 5th try, it worked using Amex (had to pay in £ - probably cost me about 1.5% more). Would not work with Visa, which seemed not to want to load with my fee free Nationwide Visa or non-fee free Barclaycard Visa (I do hate VBV - it seems to complicate my life).

Well, if credibility requires me to be a drone updating my tech annually just because a multinational company tell me I need to, then I'm happy to do so.
Does it lag and overheat? I just simply want a phone that wouldn't do so...
