That was a brilliant deal for that price!

CopaceticAnswers

Mine is the 6gb/128gb model, not global as I'm not too fussed about band 20. It cost me £210 from gearbest before Christmas. I have the nationwide banking app installed and it runs fine, NFC and Google pay both work flawlessly

I can't speak for Ulefone, however they seem to be a vastly budget minded company, probably just using cast off components to build budget phones. For the detractors of Xiaomi phones though...I can see Xiaomi hitting the UK mainstream market within the next year. You will soon see them being sold on the UK high street, much in the same vein as Huawei, or OnePlus; who started out as a relative unknown and are now competing with the big dogs. I have bought a few Xiaomi for myself as well as family, and they are solid phones for the cost. They're wildly popular in China, so the quality and expectation of them is a lot higher than most of the other "weirdly-named" China phones. I also read recently that Xiaomi are considering buying the GoPro company, so it's not as if they're a fly-by-night outfit. They are big contenders in the tech market, and gaining more traction everyday.

I have this phone. Really good phone for the price but as metioned the specs are not as good as it is on the paper. But still much better than other phones on the market. The screen is really good and the battery does last 2-4 days depending on use. The camera is not that great but most of the chinese phones are the same. I haven't seen any software glitches so far. It runs pure android and promised to get latest android update. Only glitch I have seen is, when you restart your phone, the shortcuts rearranges itself. I have run many games but works really well. I suggest checking out videos on youtube for battery, camera and speed performance.

That is much the norm. Intels Burst mode is very similar too. You get the central task completing at an ultra fast 2.4Ghz whilst 4 cores can be run at 2.3Ghz. Its too hot to run 4 at 2.5Ghz. If Ulefone are underclocking this to 2Ghz max then battery life gets improved much further and at only a small cost in speed. What is your max CPU? https://www.notebookcheck.net/Ulefone-Power-3-Smartphone-Review.286870.0.htm This confirms major benefits of underclocking. Notice that the P25 at full speed can use double the wattage! And the battery test shows 3 times the battery life of some top end stuff. Used right you could make this battery last 10 years easily.

Thanks for the run down. I ended up going via Ali Express last weekend and got the black model with free case, screen protector and other cable accesories. I also paid the extra to use paypal for the buyer protection/ free return shipping. Total cost was £129 after conversion, hopefully it's a small upgrade to my LG G3 which keeps dropping connection/ randomly rebooting. Fingers crossed for no extra customs costs (they've put it down as $21 with plain packaging and called it a media player) also hopefully get the Oreo upgrade soon. I'll report back when I receive - probably weeks from now ;(

Mister35mm

Ive got one and had it for a month. Pluses, FANTASTIC BATTERY LIFE. comes with all kinds of power connectors. Seems pretty speedy despite unremarkable processor. Negatives. 1. Processor is VERY unremarkable. Only ONE core runs at top speed. Tested with CPU-Z. The octo-core 'feature' is a scam as only one core runs at the max cpu speed. I think Nokia are doing something similar. This is power saving plan. 2. Comes with 2 pin charger with no UK adapter (Fail!) 3. It comes with Android 7.0/7.1 and I have my fingers crossed that it is upgradable to 8.0 or 8.1. Remember updates are IMPORTANT to keep your phone secure. 4. Delivery is SLOW SLOW SLOW. Took about 3 weeks to arrive. (Another fail!) However no import duties paid. Cost me £155 inc shipping. 5. Very hard to find any cases to fit. Assuming you buy it, take the offer of a free case as that might be the only one you'll find that fits.

My first choice would be one of the many Xiaomi models that are available. They're always well received especially from the HUKD community it seems (popcorn)

The closest alternative was the P2 but that is no more. This is near 100% what people want. 1080p screen, low power and 3 day battery.

I have a similar problem with AliExpress in that they keep telling me they will give me a refund ans to give them about 10 days to send the refund but it never comes, so I never buy big price items from them anymore, and would give this advice to anyone.

Hoppity_Rabbit

The Ulefone T1 was bought from the ‘Official Ulefone Store’ on Aliexpress for its seemingly impressive specs. However theapps I regularly used never utilised the full capabilities - the phone reported that on average it only used 2-3 GB of its 6 GB available RAM. I am not convinced this amount of RAM or number of processing cores (8) is required for the average user. Unfortunately after only 4 months use (in the included protective case) I had to put the offered one year warranty to the test when the screen stopped lighting up. The phone was securely packaged and posted from the UK on 29th December and received in China on the 16th January. I asked for updates several times over the next few weeks as it would take only seconds for somebody to switch the phone on and see that it was in perfect condition externally but didn’t light up. On 18th January I was informedthat as Chinese New Year was only a month away that staff were very busy and I was asked to be patient. On 18th February I was informed that Chinese New Year had just passed and staff were very busy and I was asked to be patient. On 14th March they sent me pictures to show a badly damaged phone with the screen coming apart from the body of the phone and severe scratches and dents around the metal edging. This was not my phone as it was when it was sent back, but how could I prove this - I had neglected to take pictures of the condition of the phone as I was preparing it to be sent off. I contacted my credit card provider to try and make a claim under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act which means that the credit card company is jointly liable for any breach of contract or misrepresentation by the retailer. But I learnt that as I had paid Aliexpress who then paid the retailer then there was no debtor/creditor relationship and the Consumer Credit Act didn’t cover me. Apparently the same problem arises with the likes of Amazon Marketplace. It was also too late to request a charge-back. On sending the phone away (even naively thinking that it may take a couple of weeks to get the repaired phone back)- I still had to buy a replacement to use in the interim, who could be without a phone for weeks these days ? I tried to go back through Aliexpress to open a ‘dispute’ but was now outside the allowed time to do so and this proved fruitless. I would offer some advice as a result of my experiences : If you must have a Ulefone phone, these can be bought from a UK seller at a premium - the UK sellers such as Amazon will offer a replacement as they are obliged to under the Sale of Goods Act. Alternatively, there are plenty of phones that can be bought in the UK for a similar price with slightly less impressive specs but that come with a usable warranty. I bought a Huawei p8 lite from Carphone Warehouse for a similar price which came with the reassurance that if it proves to be faulty like the Ulefone, it will be replaced or repaired within hours or days. Until a more suitable arrangement is in place to deal with faulty products this phone is not suitable to be sold in the UK via AliExpress. I would advise taking the protection of buying locally - either a lower spec phone for the same price or this phone at the increased local price. Do not buy direct from China and expect to be treated fairly.

The battery length is my main factor in getting a phone; that and toughness. Armour 2 and Power 2 owner

Couple of weeks, maybe 3 weeks is pretty normal, be it Aliexpress, gearbest or banggood.

Any idea how long the delivery time is? £125 sounds good, might be able get discount code too, maybe some tcb?

A little niche, maybe...Here's another "tough phone" competitor but of course many will dislike the antenna on this - NOMU T18 (has a replaceable battery, which makes a change!) "...a rugged chassis that meets the military standards of the Army of America (MIL-STD- 810G) that means into resistance to water, dust, falls and blows....it offers something that had not been seen, the possibility of offering a Walkie-Talkie function by hardware, and this means into being able to connect an antenna accompanied by a wheel where you can change the channel to communicate with co-workers, either through another NOMU T18 Smartphone or a traditional Walkie-Talkie." https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_1140367.html £193.57 seems the best price (use cellphones code 8% off code GBMBP) Specs say "NOMU T18 Ragged IP68 Mobile Phone Intercom 4G-LTE 3GB RAM+32GB ROM (With External Camera) Two Way Radio UHF/VHF Walkie Talkie MTK6737T Quad Core 4.7-inch HD 1280*720P Gorilla Screen 2+8MP Camera Android 7.0 5200mAh OTG NFC Interphone Fingerprint"

Why are you talking trash here? I got HTC U Ultra from eglobalcentral 2 months ago, no import tax. Discovered that the memory card slot is faulty, returned it to UK address from which they shipped it to China and after 5 weeks the phone came back fixed. Not to mention we're talking about a £100 phone here, that pretty much equals to a nice dinner for 2.

I've also had no issues before but as you say, use PayPal and they've got your back if anything goes wrong.

ozskins

In an effort to get gearbest to sort issues some info for everyone. I have bought lots of stuff from them and generally good, but when it goes wrong its a mountain to climb. However recent android box went wrong. First remote then box. Gearbest customer service woes started. Offered a couple of quid refund and no joy, or even understanding of English through gearbest ticket system, next to useless. Escalated to paypal, eventually full offer of refund. Eventually through paypal offered a UK return address for info (gearbest ticket system contradicted what they were saying through paypal) Weiwen Luo Address: Woodgate Business Park, Clapgate Lane, Bartley Green B32 3BZ Birmingham United Kingdom Phone: 07780841791 They then repeatedly refused delivery from courier. One could interpret this as a device to 'pretend' to offer refund then refuse to accept the returned goods. No goods return=no refund to pay. Only when I refused final paltry offer from through paypal, (after they had previously offered full refund) did the return that mysteriously had been repeatedly rejected, was now accepted, on the day Paypal ruled in my favour for full return of money. coincidence? doubtful. So if everyone uses paypal for payment and escalation, keeps full records, they will compel gearbest to fully refund. If everyone does this then maybe gearbest will sort it properly. Hope this helps.

Ordered this a while ago, using the free delivery option. Shipped on 3rd Nov with 'Delivery within 10-20 business days'... so still waiting. Have purchased from Gearbest once before, so it should turn up (!). As for the phone, there's a few YouTube Reviews - it definitely isnt as good as the big brands that sport the same spec. P25 Octa-Core boasts its comparability to Snapdragon 835 but in realtime performance doesnt square up precisely. Worth the shot for me.

I'm in the same process of getting my ZTE Axon 7 too - currently dispatched grey version

Throbbo

The 'speed comparison' to the Snapdragon, Exynos and A10 chips is so laughably disingenuous that it's pretty ridiculous. The P25 is very much a mid-range chip so they shouldn't attempt to tell fibs to try to compare it to the top end chips from the big boys. Can't speak for the device itself or the brand but you have to be a bit suspicious about such misleading guff.

mk-donald

FYI: I have a Ulefone Be Touch 2 from 2.5yrs ago. It took them c4 months and a couple of software updates to get it mostly working as advertised. They NEVER delivered the version of Android it was advertised with ie 5.1, just a 5.0 patched to pretend to be 5.1. (They haven't maintained the firmware at all for over 2 years now.) It was cheap, and has worked reasonably reliably though showing its age now but I'd never touch them with a bargepole again because of that personal experience. (I'm currently in process of retiring it for a ZTE Axon 7)

I placed the pre-order for the Ulefone Mix on 12-Oct and received it on 20-Nov. PROS * Most noticeable amongst the positives is the screen quality. It is bright and sharp. * OS is stock Android * Battery lasts 2 days on low use / idle * Fingerprint sensor is snappy. * Comes with a screen protector and case. * Very good value for money. CONS * WiFi seems a bit buggy .. keeps dropping network connection from time to time. Don't experience this with other devices on my network (I have a TP-Link Tl Wdr3600 Dual Band N600 Router).

I went ahead and ordered this when it was still £98 ish, it arrived today after an 18 day wait which was less than l expected and was delivered by DPD next day once it was in the country. This was to replace my aging Google Nexus 4 and l have to say it is extremely good value for money, my wife has been using it today and she uses an iPhone SE and an iPad Pro and was surprised by the clarity of the screen and the camera, everything copied over fine from my old phone including hundreds of photos, l have now installed everything that l require including Mobile MSOffice and am still only using 12GB of the 64GB storage, at the moment having only used it for about 10 hours l cannot fault it, l have already recommended it to friends, if you are unsure about going for this then l would take the leap.

I ordered and paid for this 2 weeks ago and still waiting for it to be shipped. I usually buy my Xiaomi phones from Geek Buying and the process is usually quite painless. I'm not sure I will be inclined to order from Gear Beat again.

Text on a computer monitor is normally much larger than on a phone screen, therefore ppi can be lower. Also, most people sit a full arm length from a PC monitor. My Sony Z3 Compact is 720p, but only a 4.6 inch screen, giving 319 ppi... This is noticeably better than 267ppi of 720p on 5.5". Generally speaking, Retina Display for a phone requires > 300 ppi.

At least with wileyfox there's some come back, with ulefone it's an angry German fella on Facebook who won't admit defeat no matter the fault of Ulefone!

Banggood.com do not comply with UK consumer laws. Plus delivery can be up to 28 days which they told me after I ordered - it says 1-2 days, then 6-8 days on its website. Order at your peril!

i've swapped my old samsung note3 to xiaomi mi max1 over a year ago, cost was £204 including shipping and insurance from gearbest for the 64gb version. I am well over a year now, and cannot recommend Xiaomi phones enough for price/performance ratio. ( bought also Xiaomi M365 and Mi band from xiaomi too, also from gearbest and no issues ) I've dropped it multiple times, however once dropped right on the power button from about 2 feet high and cost me £4 to get the replacement from ebay and about 15 minutes to replace it. Lucky? maybe, but my next phone is going to be from china too. I'm sick of top brands, and wannabe top brands ( looking at you Huawei ) pricing phones well over £500 and most recently close to £1000 mark. That's a price of a laptop, or a semi-decent gaming pc! I might open a flame war with this... but iphones are probably the most chinese phones ever made / been sold.

I love when Samsung released update that completed life of my long loved pristine condition note 4. Lol if nothing goes wrong with your device then manufacturers will make sure it will.

For us looking at these sort of phone's it wouldn't matter if they had malware or not! There's nothing to steal from us poor fool's anyway!! Lol

True, but it's no less effort for them rather than someone else to do it.
