FWIW, this phone is pretty useless in Canada IMHO.

It doesn't support bands 2 or 5, which are critical for 3G on the big three. No Band 4 on 3G means no Freedom mobile either.

If LTE in Canada is important to you this phone will not provide much of an experience, never mind a good one.

It only supports Band 7, which at 2600MHz tends to be pretty short range, and is only offered by the big three.

As an extreme minimum for a phone in Canada you want Band 4 (1700MHz/AWS) support. Even better would be in addition to Bands 4 and 7 would be the 700MHz bands (12/13/17).

If you're on Bell/Telus+flankers Bands 2 and 5 are also very useful.

Nice specs, but frankly not very useful in Canada.

In every single one of these no name Chinese phones threads, I always think of this famous Benjamin Franklin quote:

The Bitterness of Poor Quality Remains Long After the Sweetness of Low Price is Forgotten

Have you ever actually handled one of these chinese phones?

While certainly some are of the more dubious side of things (I don't know about this particular brand), many are now built so well the most common comment I get is "wow, feels like an iPhone".

I have a Xiaomi Note 4, it's build is FANTASTIC, it's performance is great, the screen is almost perfect. It's solid, more solid then most phones at twice the price.

In a few years IMHO these Chinese phones will completely decimate the other smartphone manufacturers' overpriced offerings (Samsung, I'm looking at you).

To anyone reading: don't immediately discount these phones from your purchase decision. Do some research and have a look at trusted reviews, you might find it's the perfect phone for you, but be very careful of 3G&LTE band support.

1. probably never, or 2. probably never carefully review before putting his hands on one, or 3. probably a user problem like i've indicated in my earlier post

I would not automatically assume that Chinese phones don't compare in quality with Samsung or similar high end brands. Samsung is buying the same cheap components that everyone else is. Case in point, the last Samsung TV I had stopped working after just over 2 years (right after the warranty had expired). So I had no choice but to throw it out, have it repaired or try to repair it myself. Well I opened up the back of the panel and lo and behold I saw a couple of capacitors that had mushroomed. I literally went to the source where I bought new ones for a about $8 which resolved the issue. The original capacitor was low voltage (and I assume cheaper) than the replacements I got. So to save a few cents these guys were willing to screw me out of many years of usage.

Everything is made in China (unless Trump says otherwise), the phones could actually solid if you stick with the main core brands. Most cheapo phones are designed for China market such as this poor guy here.

Personally I would stay away from MediaTek phones, especially MediaTek Chinese phones. MediaTek is so far behind Snapdragon it isn't even funny. Lesser known Chinese phones (in the West) are good. Look at Xiaomi, they're dominating the Indian market in spite of being a Chinese brand. OnePlus too, and they're popular here as well.

Just don't buy MediaTek if you want good support. Always Exynos, Kirin, Snapdragon or Apple.
