I experienced hundreds of phones in all brands and bq has been far the best I have used.

We're all happy with them. For the price, of course. Really good phones, no problem whatsoever. Good cameras, good battery life. Great build quality too.
Xiaomi is a great brand, of course. Maybe some people literally hate the MIUI experience with all that cheap chinese bloatware and workorounds to get the play services fully working and would like pure Android on their phones.

It's not a spec fight. Phones are more than just specs. I had a BQ M5 and it was truly a great phone. And I've owned lots of phones.
this phone is very weak, very expensive, the cpu is slow, and the photos are very bad, dont by this, and the BQ support is terrible. there are so most better phones to buy for this price.
I'm a proud owner of an old BQ model (E5 FHD) for 3 years and I can say it is worthy.
It's very fast comparing to other known brands. It has fallen many times and didn't stop working despite the broken screen. The battery is not very big but lasts a day with intense use (calls, facebook, gps, internet).

I do own a bq smartphone, the Aquaris E5HD (2gb ram -1st generation) since 2014.
It still being a great phone (camera is not great although) and it durable!
Once I needed some assistance and it when very good. Start an RMA, phone was picked up at home, went to spain (bq headquarter) and returned to my home. They do work well.
Plus, it has a very genuine Android operating system, since bq keeps the android version clean with only some soft retouches.
I still have my E5, and intend to change it only, to have a more better mobile camera.
Hope it help!
I got it last weekend, and what should I say: it`s great. I had the HTC 10 before, but was not happy with battery consumption and wireless reliability.
The bq feels very nice, runs smooth and fast and is not bloated.
For me it`s perfect!
I am having an issue at the moment with Android Pay not working because it fails SafetyNet. BQ have just said this morning that it is caused by their last update and will be fixed in the next one - fingers crossed.

How good is the x pro's camera over all? And I guess the overall feel of it? Any issues or regrets? Cheera

I also came from a 5X! Do you really find this camera comparable with the 5X? There's a stark difference for me and I'm just wondering if it's my phone or not.
I received my Aquaris X Pro (in the UK) yesterday having bought it direct from the BQ website.
So far I'm very pleased. Nice big, bright screen with small bezels. Simple, vanilla Android 7.1.1 with 1st May 2017 patch level.
I've installed all of my usual apps and so far everything is super smooth. Camera seems good (as you would expect from a flagship - it's the same as in the Galaxy S7).
All in all I am very happy. My last three phones have been Nexus (4, 5 & 5x). After my 5x turned in to a brick I spent a while looking for something reasonably priced (under £400 with case) that still had the bits I wanted (fingerprint, NFC, Android Pay, USB Type-C) and this kept kept coming up in my searches.
It has vanilla Android and BQ have made all the right noises about regular updates. If you are looking for a new Nexus this is the closest I have seen on the market.

For me a battery in Oukitel K10000 is not enough but no phone on market have better battery.
But there are milions of phones which much better specs.
AnonD-441601, 10 Apr 2017Battery should be bigger otherwise good phone. Battery must be quite good. Snapdragon 625 and 625 have a very low battery usage, they are very efficient.

Are their ... moreHello, I have the BQ M5 for over a year now, its pretty good, wont die easily (good quality) and is guaranteed 5 years by BQ themselves. Only problem imo is the processor, not strong enough, that is now quite slow on some big tasks. For normal stuff its still very reliable tho. I'm pretty sure it can live at least until it's 5th year, even if i will replace him in a few.
The android version was stock, which is nice since it doesnt have any of the crap app pre installed and impossible to remove.
