    Had a look on eBay at these , around £70 duel sim , phone, camera , sat nav , unlocked , latest android dobreys, anyone had anything to do with them, thought would be handy in France , be big enough not to have to worry about tethering and stuff and being duel sim should always have a connection, but are they any good , anyone?? Please.

    You definitely need to check if it works fully in this country. Sometimes they are only 2G. Although it may sat 3G that might not work in the UK.

    Well they have many different ones on EBay, that is why I asked, but if you are just asking in general I have just bought one 2 Months ago and it works well in Spain on 2 and 3g

    Not suggesting this one particularly, just an example of what they are like, it was the first on the list that's all

    Sorry, quoted wrong post. Should have attributed to:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Unlocked-...b8&clk_rvr_id=766352428847&afsrc=1&rmvSB=true

    Yes, that will work on 3G in the UK and France.
    But no 4G

    Good value for a dual sim phone though

    I have been using a Cubot x6 since Terry introduced me to them at Wildmans do last August you can get the dual and quad core version on eBay as well.
    This one is 8 core and is pretty quick,using it now 5" screen and for £89 was good value in my opinion.And is as good ,if not better than the other halfs Samsung S4.
    Have down loaded loads of apps the phone is rooted so no branding,so unlocked. And dual sim so have Std Toggle sim in one and three micro sim in the other slot.and can have the both 'live'.Works OK for me.
    I did see in Aldi last week a Median 5" android phone for around £75 I think .
    Hope this helps

    The spec looks good to me. You'd be £300 on the high street with that spec. What you aren't sure of is quality control and cost to return for repair.

    Looks like a good for satnav.

    Go on, give us some feedback.

    Hi I bought a Cubot x6 duel core and a p7 quad core and both works good also got a THL quad core --The x6 last 3 to 4 days without charge /standby the p7 only lasts about 36 hrs but is the better phone (gave it to my brother -well sold it -I got it replace/try the x6 but he he saw it he wanted the p7 so I did not have it more than a couple of weeks -ideal would be p7 with the p 6 battery -The THL is quad core and basically needs charging every night but works very good has a better screen and camera -Just sent for a Lenovo http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261630771025?_trksid=p2060778.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
    nearly 40 quid more but Octa core and a very good spec will be selling the THL to a mate and the X6 is earmarked
    All in all they have all worked good (y)
    terry
    EDITED TO CHANGE FROM P6 TO X6 (y)

    i have the doogee voyager2 dg310,be carefull buying cheap phones of ebay as some you will have a job getting spare batteries,screen protectors,and cases for them but the 310 i have every thing is available,little tip if you spot a Chinese phone you like ,look to see if batteries,screen saver's and cases are available,i have no complaints at all with mine.
    this is the second chinese phone i had,because although the first one was a good phone i could not get a spare battery for it or a case.
