You don't get the idea.
DX.com is usually waiting to collect bunch of orders and are shipping few feeks the purchase. The delivery time is different story.

This offer for difference is with 24h shipping. Not 24h guaranteed delivery.

Sure, but even among Chinese phones, Doogee is garbage quality. There are phones from FAR more reputable Chinese brands for the same money - the only reason to get this phone is if you absolutely have to have a 6.5" screen.

Yes, but like I said - even if they *say* they're going to ship it in 24h:

1 - that doesn't mean that they will (Chinese gadget shops are NOTORIOUS for making promises like this that they can't keep, and DX is no different).
2 - Most other Chinese gadget shops will ship out a phone within a week or less (average is 3-4 days, from most stores). And since they all take 3-6 weeks to deliver any way, what does it matter if they ship it out in 24h or ship it out in 3-4 days? This phone is available for the exact same price in the other thread I linked to.

I'd have returned those phones if the GPS didn't work. I didn't really have that recourse with the Doogee.

It's nothing to do with where it's made, Doogee is just a low-end company. I was quite optimistic when I purchased it, but the difference between say, my Moto G4's, Nexus 6 etc. isn't really comparable. The quality of the USB socket was also low. It literally wore out after a few usages. Not really the same as kids yanking on the cord.

I'd never buy a 700$ phone, that's not what I'm comparing it to. I'd be more likely to go with a Xiaomi over Doogee any day.

If you looked at the post I was responding to, I was answering two specific questions (Is it made in China or Japan? And what's the quality like?). Not all made in China is garbage, obviously, but Doogee is generally regarded as being crap.

Are you in the business of phone repairs, or you are just assuming this?

Don't need to be in the business of phone repairs, if you've followed the ChinaPhone market even remotely closely for the last 2-3 years Doogee's reputation is well known for being one of the worst, when it comes to build quality, longevity and software support.

I bought the Doogee DG310 a couple of years ago and it was one of the worst POS phones ever owned (frustratingly slow and unresponsive). Perhaps Doogee is better now, but based on that experience alone I will not buy another one.

Again asking - any statistics? Tests? Data for return quantities?

Or just spreading rumors based on assumptions?

Of course not, since nobody is going to bother doing stats on return quantities (because these are all sold as grey market devices when they're sold outside of China/India - and the Chinese gadget shops are notorious for making it incredibly difficult to return broken devices for warranty repair - who's going to spend $75-80 to return a phone that they only paid $150 for?). I mean, you might be right - it might all be rumours and hearsay (or those dastardly Xiaomi and Meizu sockpuppets trying to give poor Doogee a bad name), but the vast vast VAST amount of feedback on forums and review sites (the ones not obviously giving positive reviews in exchange for free devices) all over the internet reporting on the poor quality of Doogee phones is pretty hard to ignore. Granted, I haven't used a Doogee phone in over a year now, so hey, maybe they've managed to pull their shit together, but I haven't seen any evidence to the contrary yet.

The criteria is very simple: anytime it is a brand that has nothing to lose, you DO NOT buy, or you WILL regret it.

Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo and Vivo are Chinese brands that have a lot of notoriety and good reputations.

Most of the rest however is to be completely avoided. These phones are simply complete turds that frequently arrive broken or fall apart after only a few months.

Doogee could be closed at any time and restarted under another name and absolutely nothing would be lost. Also it is the same company that has many of these dummy brands, like Doogee, Leagoo, Bluboo, Elephone, ... it's all the same garbage

Actually the same thing was few decades ago with the Hyundai cars: cheap, basic, no options, bad reputation...

Look where they are today!
