Gearbest are crap for warranty. Been trying to resolve an issue for nearly 2 months but they just keep putting obstacles in the way.
Could be a delay due to the Corona virus. Lots of companies have stopped work.

Warranty associated with Chinese sellers is likely unrealistic unless qualifying for S75 or possibly chargeback, but certainly not PayPal.

Gearbest have had other sellers for a few years now. Delays are presumably due to Chinese New Year which ended on the 10th, and now the Coronavirus outbreak.

China are not running to speed and wasn't until 17th they went back to work. Massive delays at the moment. Could get worse.

My delay issues happened December and again now but fair enough this time
aliexpress I'm waiting. 10 days to dispatch but now stuck somewhere. Well the tracking is showing no movement. Only returned to work on 17th and sent 18th but no more updates. Messages say holiday extended and virus troubles

The parcel is sitting in China right now, are you comfortable with importing from China despite the outbreak? If it was me I'd have cancelled straightaway.

Not going to catch virus from phone. 10 ish hours it will be safe assuming it's been coughed on. Be more than that with UK mail.. However. You should do whatever you think is right for you.
