- Sam struggles to get signal in London, therefore everyone must get a phone with B20
- UK uses B20 so people who promote non B20 phones are Chinese citizens pretending to be in UK
- Lack of one 4G UK band means the phone is a mini tablet which will only work in China and India but not in UK
- People who post Gearbest deals are commission agents and employees and subjected to Sam's criticism, but it's okay for him to post them
- Sam has an opinion, therefore everyone who disagrees is automatically wrong and he won't accept otherwise
- Sam has personal views/preferences, therefore they must be applicable to everyone else. Anyone who does not abide by these views are brainless, living in the stone age, throwing their money away, not worried about having their details stolen, don't understand the concept of moderation, will get tooth decay, obesity, diabetes and alzheimer's, or cancer unless they use Sam approved cookware.

Hmmm.... 6 of these (£100 for cases) or an iPhone X
Hot deal for a very well spec'd. Usual things apply take it as having no warranty, use free shipping of you want the best chance of avoiding duty and vat, no band 20 on this version and from what can be researched do not expect any OS updates to the device
4070mAh battery with fast charge support as well - pretty good!

Are you sure it doesn't support B20??
Corking price! Gave you heat. I'm sure Sam will comment in 3, 2, 1......
Ah they finally add NFC
Got the le max 2 and v impressed for the price

Heat from me
Unfortunately still on Marshmallow, with no planned update to Nougat (unless you root & install a custom rom if available).

You don't have this phone Sam, do you?
Why not have a walk down poundland, shake your head and stop quoting same boring lines on every deal that you don't post.
How do you install custom rom without rooting ? Did you get it with unlocked bootloader ?
Can someone confirm if it supports Band 20?

GSMarena said it can, very confused?

No it dont there is a x720 version that does but has a SD820 soc and a x722 version that does with a SD821 soc this version x727 does not also with a SD821 soc its for the USA so supports all their bands and according to xda forums cant be changed through firmware mod to support band 20 as it is a modem hardware difference

For someone who's been saying the same thing for months, you'd think at some point you'd have provided links to support your claims. But despite people requesting it, you do not provide any and then continue on with the same comments on the next LeEco thread that gets posted: hotukdeals.com/com…108

I've seen LeEco threads regarding bloatware on official ROM, with owners asking how to remove it because they fear it is spyware. And also problems associated with vendor ROMs. But nothing that links LeEco to installing spyware themselves or that their pre-installed bloatware is actually spyware. I'm fairly certain you're mixing up different scenarios. Feel free to provide links which prove otherwise. The only results I can find when searching for this phone in regards to spyware are people worried of LeEco's own apps being spyware with no confirmation at all, of it being the case. forum.xda-developers.com/le-…389

Yet you've apparently bought 2 Doogee phones and a LeEco phone

Now you're using the term malware, when previously you said spyware and bloatware. They aren't necessarily interchangeable terms. Again demonstrating your lack of understanding. But sure, go ahead and ignore my previous comment requesting for you to provide proof of your claims. I expected for you to be unable to do so, anyway.

Judging from previous interactions, it will have zero effect and he'll continue displaying his ignorance, hypocrisy and tendency to lie, on future threads. He's been doing it for a long time and the fact that many other people are aware of it doesn't phase him, nor does anything anyone else says.

I guess the saying 'once a troll, always a troll' has got to have its roots from somewhere
Phone, specs and price seem to be good.
Only the thing is there's not review on this model.
No B20 which is a shame. This puts off many buyers including me. The specs are good indeed.
There is a difference between rooting and unlocking the bootloader. The latter is all you need for custom ROMs. Not all bank apps check and many will still work they just won't cover you for fraud.

I was just going to add some flavour to this... I don't claim this is correct. It's just to the best of my knowledge.

"root" simply means that: root access in the OS. Any ROM, even an original one could provide user "you" (the user and the apps you run) with root, or an app could give "you" root intermittently (like "sudo su..."). However, an app with root access can do pretty much anything, keylog everything, install traps/hooks in the OS etc. Clearly, that's why banking apps check for root.

The "bootloader" is a bit like the BIOS of a computer. It defines the startup sequence and often checks if the installed ROM (the OS in computer language, i.e. Windows/Linux) is "valid". An unlocked bootloader allows to install other than the original ROM. If you had the manufacturers key, you could sign any ROM as original and install it without unlocking the bootloader.

If the custom ROM simply bunches together drivers + standard android then there is no risk. This does not give root to any malware and you are safe.

However, someone could obviously produce a "malware ROM" that gives a hidden root access to some malware, keylogs everything and sends it to evil HQ. So installing a custom ROM could be as bad as root access (in some sense worse, as root would be hidden). I believe this requires deeper knowledge of the OS or some script-toolkits that do it for you. I'm not sure whether this is an issue already.

Would I run banking apps on a custom ROM? No, not really. If I ran banking apps I would probably stick with a very large manufacturer like Google. But I don't run banking apps, so I don't really mind flashing ROMs if they are from a trustworthy source.

...and no aptx on BT for the music lovers. Which is what puts me off.
GSMarena also cites wireless ac on this phone, which banggood does not. so a few discrepancies to look out for, if they are important to you.

Otherwise, good spec for the cash.
