Anonymous, 22 Oct 2017Well, this company managed to scam a few of my non-techy friends to buy their overpriced phone... moreI am a teck guy and used to do lot homework before purchasing a phone, I often heard that some one is not overpriced and not worthy, I fully trust since the specification will not lie. But when bought two new phones, Yes ,two new phones, finally I found those small issues matter, e.g. camera, lag, battery.
So do try before you buy, just choose the phone you like not the high specification, not the review. Trust me, those review wouldn't tell you those small issues until you used it.
Well, this company managed to scam a few of my non-techy friends to buy their overpriced phones. Slow mediatek chips, hollow feeling aluminum and ugly user interface. And guess what, it cost so much here, you could get a Mi6. Oppo and Vivo brainwashes poor malaysians with their exaggerated advertisements in cinemas. Sigh...
They should have used a better screen on their new model. I was a Vivo supporter prior to that poor decision.
AnonD-427767, 20 Oct 2017You clearly have no idea about latest market. Samsung phones used to be laggy. Use any ... moreAmong my family we have a Samsung Galaxy J pro, a Xiaomi MiA1, a Sony Xperia X, a Samsung Note 5, a Xiaomi Mi5, a Sony Xperia XA, I can says that Samsung TW still lag, Sony is not the fastest UI, guess what the smoothest among them all is Xiaomi MiA1 which runs on Pure Android.
Ugh, even Vivo has the mind to expand out, and I'm still waiting on Xiaomi to come to the Philippines...

Luxor, 20 Oct 2017Well said.Thank you.
People either just go by advertisements or their way old experiences.
They don't even try new tech just because old ones gave them issues.
Happy to see vivo expanding. Xplay series are wonderful phones.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2017Now listen my suggestion. Never buy any Samsung phone. Their phones become very laggy soon. Al... moreYou clearly have no idea about latest market.
Samsung phones used to be laggy.
Use any decent Samsung device nowadays and you will know the difference.
You say Nokia should be trusted? They just released Android devices.
My personal experience says stay away from hTC if you don't have high bugdet. Same for Sony.
Lenovo has vanilla android but it's laggy. Heck MiUi is way better than Lenovo's vanilla Android.
Vanilla Android doesn't means smooth.
Software optimization plays the bigger role.
Themed OS doesn't means not optimized.
Vic4BBM, 20 Oct 2017Parent of one+ is BBK ( same company which owns VIVO OPPO) so be careful.I know that and that's why I compared those 3.
that's not really europe, they would get sued to the ground in europe and north america as they rip off everything from others
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2017Now listen my suggestion. Never buy any Samsung phone. Their phones become very laggy soon. Al... moreI got my self just that weird name Chinese brand Leagoo Kiicaa Mix that is like 2mm taller then my old Nokia Lumia 830 that had 2350mAh batter and weight was 151g with a 720p 5 inch screen and 10 mp camera Carl Zeiss.
Leagoo Kiica Mix that i got half a day less then a week ago cost me only 91.70ÂÂ€ and free shipping to Estonia. It took over a month to get one, but i am happy with what i got. It has android 7.0 on it that runs better then my Asus Nexus 7 2013 tablet with it's 6.0 android.
It has 5.5 inch screen that have 2mm off bezel on 3 sides and fingerprint reader in front.
There are cons like it does not have 3.5mm for headphones, but it has a usb type-c and some cheap usb type-c headphones that work for fm radio even. Cons for more is thatt the top speaker for making calls are in weird on top position.
But well specs wise it has a 1080p screen, 13+2mp cheap cam and better 8mp for front cam. It has some mediatek 6750T 4x1.5GHz and 4x1.0GHz, 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM expandable for second sim slot to something 128GB if i remember right. And well it has a 3000mAh battery that on low use could last on standby for 4 days. I have low use so it last me over a day and on second day mid day it's on 30% Better then my 830 was.
It's a bit wider then Lumia 830 but it weight's same 151g.
My main thing with this was that i needed a phone that is not much bigger then my old win10 phone. That is easier to get out of the pants pocket as this Kiicaa Mix (Xiaomi Mix 1 copycat) has somewhat more rounded corners then the 830 had with it's aluminium body with sharp corners.
So far on android side i understand that it's stock android with some Freeme os that seems to be just a theme.
But well i am happy with what i got and well even if it last me only half a year then it was worth the 90 euro. But i highly doubt that it will last me only half a year. It seems to have good enough quality to last longer then 2 years. Asus was known from PC components maker for motherboards and graphics cards and even sound cards so when they entered in the market of smartphones i was skeptical about the nexus 7 2013 tablet to. But it still have pretty good specs and have lasted me over 3 years and i bought it or 140ÂÂ€
These days everything is made in China or Asian countries and everyone who has contacts can make a new brand name and start selling smartphones.
Russia has most of it's biggest cities in the geographic region of Europe, but there routs are more from Mongolia side and the wast 2/3 size of there territory will be in Asia geographic region.
HutHutHut, 20 Oct 20173/4 of Russia is Asia... Unless 1/4 of the country constitutes "huge" in your definition... lol. geographically, if Russia is part of europe, it means China also part of europe.
we don't need this shitty company in Morocco, we have her sister ' Oppo ' that drowned our market with his shitty, expensive, exaggerated phones.
the problem that BBK Electronics the mother company of OPPO , VIVO , 1+, spend money on advertising, forgetting the essential (the phone specs).
i hate this Company.
AnonD-568153, 20 Oct 2017Wait, My J7 Prime does't even experience lags, even on updates... And also I have Xiaomi Mi 6 ... moreAre you sure you have mi6? I'm using mi6 too, never had a lag and stuttering problem or whatsoever like you said, also using a5 2017 too as my secondary phone, and yes, i think samsung very well optimizing their UI even only mid ranger phone, but still cannot beat my mi6 overall

Anonymous, 20 Oct 2017Now listen my suggestion. Never buy any Samsung phone. Their phones become very laggy soon. Al... moreNot everyone is a fan of Stock Android. For me, it's too plain and boring. One size of shoes don't fit everyone. Also the in-built customizability in Stock Android is very less, like Stock Android still do not have support for native theming. Not into launchers, because well, they can only change the look of the homescreen and app menu. That's about it. If you remember, Samsung had the multiwindow feature before it was made available as a native feature in Android Nougat. Stock Android borrowed heavily from manufacturer's UI. Many features which are now a part of Stock Android were already present in OEM's custom user interface on top of Android. As for Samsung's UI, I agree it was a bit laggy some years ago, especially during the S3 & S4 days because it had plenty of in built features. But it's a different scenario now. Samsung Experience UI, as its now called, is more polished and simplistic while retaining most of the useful features, compared to earlier versions of TouchWiz UI. Going back to Stock Android would feel like a downgrade to me after having used feature rich UI of different OEMs.. Sure, stock Android is light weight but it doesn't have that many features you can find on some manufacturers custom UI. As for lagging, it's both a hardware and software dependant thing. Android is the most fragmented OS ever. So many different hardwares, OS version, custom UIs of different manufacturers and so on. Therefore, it's difficult to optimize an application for a particular smartphone.. An application may lag on your device but may not lag mine. It depends on many things like OS version, optimization levels, compatibility, CPU, GPU, RAM etc. A poorly optimized application would be laggy on any optimized or not-so-optimized OS. Same way, an app can run slower on old SoC (CPU, GPU) but faster and smoother on a new SoC. The most amount of lag I've faced was on budget smartphones. Sometimes users perceive smoother user interface transition animations as lag, which is not actually the case. You can reduce the UI animations duration in all Android phones, therefore making navigation faster in the UI by shortening the duration of animations.. I've used more Samsung phones than other brands in my life but I'm certainly not a fanboy. At the end, it's all about user experience. Currently got two Samsung Galaxies, no lags so far. Xiaomi, OnePlus, Motorola, and Huawei are the only good Chinese brands. Lenovo is pathetic. Recently OnePlus was caught mining user data so I wouldn't trust these Chinese OEMs. As for durability, Samsung is second only to Nokia in my opinion. Much better than Chinese OEMs.
ZloiYuri, 20 Oct 2017Yes. Geographically it's a huge part of Europe, my uneducated not-friends. 3/4 of Russia is Asia... Unless 1/4 of the country constitutes "huge" in your definition...
