Today I am going to review a smart phone from a marketplace called DHGate the world’s leading B2B online trading marketplace for goods manufactured in China, serving the world’s small and medium-sized businesses since 2004. they are backed by investors KPCB, JAFCO and Warburg Pincus helping them make online trade simple. The design of the phone is very unique and  looks very nice for being able to get what you need done quick with no lag the phone costs about $81.89 USD and comes with Free Shipping if you want to wait for a few weeks for the phone but I would suggest getting DHL shipping as they are very reliable when dealing with international packages  so it’s worth the extra cost. So not bad for the price but how does it perform? That’s what this review intends to show you, so read on….

The Review:

So you might remember I reviewed the a few Nokia phones in the past few months I liked reviewing these phones  for one common reason simple to use without lag this has always stuck with me since I’m an apple dude

My experience as I said in the video below is very clear I really liked this phone just as good as some of your big name phones out there  I had some worries at first since it’s coming from China that it would be cheap and the Android OS would be corrupt like a cheap tablet I had back in december which I never reviewed since there was no point anyways moving on This phone could be a bit hard to set up since most of the videos out are unboxing this phone but it’s very simple just remove the back  and insert the battery but be careful of the back cover which is made of plastic so take care as I didn’t see any store selling those back cover replacements  for me I just had to remove the tape on the battery and I was set to go

A few things I’ve noticed from my tablets and phones I have used running Android is the battery with phone I’ve good battery power provided you let it charge for a few hours when you get it, The camera was surprising really good as well I recorded a few clips of my cat and snapped a few photos there’s no button for photos just press on the preview to take the picture or press the red dot to record a video much more simple then on my iPhone ,Gaming on this phone is quite simple I played one of my favorite games for both iOS and Android Fruit Ninja  this is a good game to test the lag and responsiveness of the phone and it passed with flying colors I did noticed the screen also seemed very clear to read like the white background in the settings I prefer it over the black , Now for users who like to use your phone as a hotspot I found the stock app on the phone wasn’t the best BUT wait there’s an easy app to use to enable this It’s called Portable Wifi HotSpot Free  there is probably more apps but I picked this since the preview pics in the play store looked simple and easy, The Graphics for this phone are great you don’t see any pixels as you would with some cheap tablets or phones, Now for the protection of this cool device you will need a case Correct! this phone does come with a wallet style suction cup case which is nice and has a sleep and wake function found in most iPad covers  but  I wanted something a bit more to my style I’m using a Proporta Universal Leather Gecko Case which fits the phone right  I have review and discount code for this case on my YouTube channel The phone does comes with instructions but focuses more on basic software features of a smart phone if you follow what I’ve told you today you are sure to enjoy this phone while saving some mega bucks!

Anyways I had friends help test this out and they loved it the ease of use and grasp of getting to know a phone in just under 3 mins they really liked it

The final score averages out to be a 10 out of 10,  I can’t really find any cons since I did run into some problems like Wifi Tethering but a quick search in the google play store helped fix this
