Man everyone is getting theirs today it seems. Of course mine is still stuck in BC. Crossing my fingers for tomorrow.
Have faith, the CP tracking system is way behind where it actually is.

Honest can't complian for the price. Camera is a little underwhelming but I didn't expect much. Took all of 5 minutes to setup. Speed of phone is very good too
I think that was the prediction. Really you couldn't go wrong with a dual-sim + sd card for $100 USD. I didn't bite because I didn't need another smartphone (I have the OnePlus 7 Pro as my daily driver and a Samsung A50 as back-up and work phone (job isn't idea for keeping your phone immaculate + back-ups to the back-ups.... :rolleyes: )). But for the price, it's still kinda awesome for what you get.

Honestly doesn't matter, I'd toss whatever charge is in the box and get a proper (safe) charger.

I just had a look at tracking tonight and as of 6 PM, it's now scanned in in Mississauga. Should be here tomorrow then. Finally! Looking forward to comparing it to my current (old) Galaxy A5 phone.

Been playing around with it for a while now. I'm actually pretty damn impressed with just about everythibg. Camera does the job but nothing to write home about. Be sure to turn animations off as this makes a huge difference on swiping speed etc. I can't think of anything even close in this price range. Excellent backup/kids phone. (to be used as a hotspot mini tablet)

Thanks to everyone for the comments.
With the tax fees and the need of a better case, I think it’s not a great deal for me (to use a backup photo and music player).
I have just canceled my order.

Holy moly this phone feels heavy compared to my Pixel 3a.

Only if you ship via DHL.

Like every other phone on the planet?

Good luck finding anything else that meets those 2 requirements unless you're buying used which is another can of worms.
Not that $100 and change will even buy you anything good used.

I've had the same reaction with quite a few Chinese devices.

To turn off animation on Android devices :
Go to Settings > About phone, then tap on Build number several times to enable it. Go to Settings > Developer options, and scroll down to Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale. Tap on each of the animation options and turn them off.
