Hello All,
I've been looking for a cheap android phone for several weeks, then found this homtom HT17 on Amazon.ca, only CND$90.99 with FS. I checked youtube to find out reviews:
Highlights

- 5.5 Inch Screen, 1280*720 Pixel
- MTK6737 1.3GHz Quad Core
- Support Touch ID
- 1GB RAM + 8GB ROM
- 8 MP (SW 13 MP) Back Camera + 2 MP (SW 5 MP) Front Camera
- Android 6.0 System
- 3000mAh Battery
- Dual SIM: Micro SIM + Micro SIM + TF Card, three Card Slot
- Band: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz, WCDMA 900/2100MHz, FDD-LTE B1/B3/B7/B20, Support 2G & 3G & 4G LTE Network

I am almost going to buy one now, this is the lowest price I could found. Anyone could found lower price? or don't mind to share the experience if used it?

I honestly thought you had typoed the title when posting this thread.
I would be a bit wary of the item though, because:
1. Not by amazon nor fulfilled by amazon, so you may have troubles in the future in terms of receiving and returning the item
2. The seller's earliest review was September 3, 2016...meaning that the account is relatively new

I would personally stay away from phones like these as I would question the reliability and security of the phone, but if you would compare it to Amazon's Blu phones, the specs are a lot better. However, I would probably just buy a re-certified phone/wait for a koodo/fido deal than to buy something like this. That's just me though. I'm really not a huge fan of "deals" that are items posted on amazon/ebay, because people tend to have a bad time with them and then complain on the forum after.

Thank you so much. This helps a lot. I personally don't use amazon/ ebay a lot, Then where do you recommend to get a cheap android phone? ********/ banggood / geekbuying? saw several threads about those Chinese online sellers, haven't used them yet.
Anyway, thanks a lot for your help.
