  1. Excellent phone – when it works. Problem is, it will keep shutting itself down, restarting, updating apps for an hour, it will freeze, won’t start, won’t recognize your SIM cards etc. Basically a waste of money and nerves on yet another piece of Chinese garbage

    • Seems to be bizarre. i got no problem with it. It’s an excellent deal for the price. Root it easily, play plant vs zombies2 . GPS, Bluetooth and wifi are all ok. Facebook, viber are ok too. 3G is fast too. I do not have any issue with this phone

  2. Leagoo M8 is good smartphon at the price but I found better one. Uhans A6 have upper hand in many options.
    1. Fully-laminated screen, clearer display effect
    2. Android 7.0 Nougat out of box, pure UI and less power-consumption
    3. 4150mAh: powered throughout 2 days
    4. More available storage due to the pure OS
    5. 10-fingerprint touch, great for game players
    6. Support Huge External memory.

    I hope you will get better idea or compare them yourself before buy.
