is an octa 1.5ghz cpu equal to a quad 3ghz cpu or does it not quite work like that?

You'd have to compare processors not just clock speed or core count.

focalprice trustworthy?

I'm not great with figuring out Specs. what is this comparable to and would it support my support my Vodafone sim?

​I have ordered a tablet from them & they sent a phone (that didn't work), pain to return, crap customer services. I had to pay for return postage, I wouldn't t touch this company again.

In my experience NO

I have voted hot, but if I read the other thread correctly, it will not support my Tesco sim card, a pity but I added some heat any way.
I will now have a read through the other thread properly to find a 4g chinese phone that will work with my Tesco sim card

Tesco sim will work in the elephone P8000 and has similar specs to this

From what i had read i believe its only Focal Price who are advertising 4g for a Tesco and all others outlet are basically saying it'll only have 3g on this band,hopefully i am wrong as i too was looking at this phone but opted for the elephone p8000 because of the 4g problem

Can someone post a link please to the thread that explains 3G, 4G bandwidths. I'm with 3 and don't (currently) get 4G in my area. Any information on Chinese phones that accept 3G in the UK would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'm confused

Another stupid phone with choice simcard or microsd

​I think it's more like 2 quad cores. One runs at a higher clock and the other at a lower clock for power saving

​spot on. got it from focal price. had a cheapo tablet from them last year without problems. just got a spare battery from pandawill for about £3-4. I am really temted to buy the iron for the 3gb but I just can't justify it yet.

According to

willmyphonework.net/

You'll be able to get 4G with Three, EE and Vodafone, but not with O2, Tesco and Giffgaff you'll only get 3G. For O2 etc you'll need a phone that supports 800mhz to get 4G

​im on 3uk and have got the Bluboo x550 which works great on 4g. I even got 50 Mbps download speed in York this week.
I got it from Aliexpress for £95 and am very happy with it

When is release date? Loooks a nice phone

How long do these normally take to arrive?

I am so tempted to move away from Apple now. I got the kids Onda v989 32gb tablets earlier this year and they are amazing for an unknown Chinese brand at a quarter the price of an iPad Air - and you can add memory cards! This phone has an amazing spec at this price and might just tip me over the edge!

Is there import duty to pay on these?

​i have had 3 phones a tablet and a sat nav, never paid anything.

Thanks, I think I'll take the plunge at that price. Lolipop pre-installed is a bonus, my OnePlus One has been nothing but a pain since the update to 5.1!

​the phone does support 800mhz
2G: GSM900/1800/1900
3G: WCDMA850/900/1900/2100
4G: LTE FDD800/1800/2600

This or the vodaphone ultra smart 6. Being stuck with this choice for a week now :-D

Thanks shady. Does the 3G work on 3? Sorry if I'm being stupid

Thanks again shady. As 3 have yet to roll out 4g in my area I really needed the 3G to work. Away to buy and thanks again

thanks

Tesco sim will work in the elephone P8000 and has similar specs to this

read up on this phone. pretty sure it doesn't have the o2 800htz frequency so no 4g with them tesco giff gaff . shame

think the answer to 4g is do some research previous commenter has found info ive failed to find . trust me I have looked . but maybe not close enough

this is a very good price for this spec! heat op

What are the chances of custom roms being developed for this handset?

Iris scanner? Heart rate monitor? Ffs

Is this better than Ulefone be touch 2?
