Absolutely right, and if you pay thru Paypal your not covered for any amount... nice phone for peanuts though!

my Oukitel k6000 pro lasted 5 months - I wouldnt buy another of their phones - no updates no support and certainly in my case not well made

Another bezel less phone with big black borders around the screen. would love one of these chinese phones with the samsung screen and sure it will come just not yet.

Get the redmi note 4 same money-ish even if they have stuck a cheaper camera in it.

If you are willing to do a little bit of reading before you begin the process, it really isn't difficult, but if drivers, and the odd typing of a command are not something you can age to, it's not your bag.
But really it's an enjoyable learning process if you open your mind to it.

I don't recommend it if you not confident with flashing ROMs.
Only Indian & Chinese official ROMs get updates ... which you need to flash by yourself or get some mate to do it for you.

Has anyone gone for this? Or, has anyone bought from actual Volumerate before? I know they are part of the Deal Extreme family but Volumerate don't seem to have very good feedback from what I've seen that's all (such as sending faulty / used items, not refunding, ignoring messages). Price is tempting, but all the agro, I'm unsure.

I'm not sure the TCB will work here will it. That's with Deal Xtreme but when clicking through that, this phone is on Deal Xtreme but in US dollars when you checkout. It's only in Pounds when going via the VolumeRate, so not sure the Deal Xtreme will track will it?

Strangely, the Chinese version is selling for about £160!This should have the Indian ROM (I expect) which will have Google Play etc plus regular updates. There are also a lot of custom ROMs out there. You can also chose either a stock Android or the Lenovo UI.



Many thanks

​https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty
well if it's under £135, there's no custom tax. Yes VAT is added on anything above £15 @20%.

From the last time I checked, any goods over £17.99 imported into the UK from outside the EUEA (European Economic Area) is due import duties.

The Royal Mail slaps on an £8 handling change and then there is VAT to be added.

Yes I got caught with a £21 item bought from the USA.

DX have been fine for me during the 5ish years I have been using them. I've no reason to doubt this subsidiary will be significantly different. I have yet to pay any fees for Chinese imports (using the free/slow delivery helps).
