  • Can you please start reviewing the new phones coming out if China. They show great specs at low costs but are they any good? The likes of Ulefone, Eelephone, Doogie etc. all look good on paper great specs even pure android on some and the costs are so low are we being ripped off by the big manufacturers or are these Chinese company making a loss to get into the market? These are real stories I would like to read and I'm sure other would too. We all want a good solid phone at a great price!
