[Staples] Sky Elite 5.5" FHD, 16GB, 3GB RAM, Dual SIM [REFURB] - Great Second Phone -- $74.97 (net $25 coupon)

https://www.staples.ca/products/2721144 ... 1090075573

Staples code
$25 off $75 or more
Code: 71400

Final Price: $74.97 (net coupon)

I own one, when they were on fire-sale at Visions. It's pretty fast for a secondary phone, pretty reliable, surprisingly good phone for $75. You're also not dealing with a shady foreign reseller which is nice.

5.5" FHD Touch screen display
Powerful 1.30 GHz Octa Core Processor
16 GB Storage capacity
3 GB RAM phone memory
Dual SIM capability (Micro-SIM card size)
16.0 MP Main camera & 8.0 MP Front camera
2800 mAh Lithium battery

Decent deal, folks. The RAM and CPU seem to be killing it (i.e. they're good) on this device.

God bless, folks.

Nah, 8 hours max. Honestly, this is one of the best value for money burners this side of an Eastern European Bazaar. Rapid charging half-works on this device.

In a pinch, it could be your main. Swappable batteries is a real plus.

I tried to figure some stuff out for somebody on one of these earlier this year, it was running marshmallow.

I'd rather buy a used LG G4/Galaxy s6/xiaomi a1 off eBay for around $100-$120.

I have a Xiaomi Mi A1 and was thinking of selling it. Think I'll just keep it instead of buying this phone. Thanks
