Yea these phones are horrid, 9/10 of them that I've sold come back to me... Which is a shame because they ARE in fact a SD 625, I ran a CPU Z and that's what it populated.
Either way there are better options than this one :[
I disagree with most comments, this phone is wonderful for the price big screen great for movies and if your into social media management. I still have it till today 2018 love it! Its affordable and can do the somethings high end phones can do, I currently play Rockstar Games on it and never Lags. Great for work and social media, yes I agree can have to many apps open but runs clean and perfect
Avoid this device. While the processor is more than adequate, the 2GB of memory is completely inadequate and bottlenecks the processor. You cannot run more than one app or this stutters like a 2012 gingerbread android. The phone will lock, stutter and freeze. Read the comments on t-mobile's website for the phone and you will see a litany of comments reflecting this.

Sorry 200 is a ... moreYou are right, there a lot of cheap Chinese brands which are cheaper than this. The only thing is, this is the only one compatible with US LTE networks. I am on my second month with this phone, and I certainly would prefer Lenovo phab 2 than this.

Mr. Electronics, 13 Nov 2017Did u watch the video? They said 2.0 ghz octa-core processor. Pretty sure that's the snapdragon 625Tom's Guide lists it as a Snapdragon 625, someone from T-Mobile said Mediatek MT6738.
Mr. Electronics, 13 Nov 2017Did u watch the video? They said 2.0 ghz octa-core processor. Pretty sure that's the snapdragon 625No I didn't. I'm using a friend's data, and he has very low data (thanks Canada operators for offering us the highest prices!). But even then there are MT SoCs that comply those characteristics. Except if the price of the SD625 decreased sharply since the release of the SD630 and 626...

I get what they were trying to do here, but when you find out you can get a like new or mint Moto G5 Plus for slightly more and better specs...
The important piece of info missing is the SoC. Cheap SD21x/MT? Midrange SD4xx? 6xx is out of question at this price.

Discovery science channel had 2 same cakes with one have price tag of 10 bucks and other with a 100 bucks tag. They test it out on people and everyone like the 100 bucks cake over the 10 bucks cake. When they comment the 10 bucs cake they say it does not taste good or something like that but the 100 bucks cake was delicious. So basically you have the same problem a placebo effect cause the price is higher and the brand is American then it has the quality and is better then Chinese brand and who cares that they all are made in ASIAN countries. There are only few brands out there that have there own factories that produce there own parts. All the rest are just brand names who do somewhat design for there device and have picked up a list of features the device will have.

With the knows specs of it already then it's hard to say it's light on budget. Sorry 200 is a lot for this device. When there are lots of start up brands that get all of that for half a price.
