    Just wondered if anyone has bought a new phone from China unbranded? , I have a Cubot X6 octa -core 1gb ram 5inch HD screen
    Paid £90 and the phone benchmarks over a s4 easily, really good phone for the money!

    Thanks to greens117

    I have a Zopo C2. One with the quad core and 5" full HD screen 1gb ram. Can't fault it for the price. Camera is 13mp but struggles in darker conditions.

    Would definitely recommend it as a cheap alternative. Think it was about US$230.

    Out of interest, have any of you run Avast or Malwarebytes on your device?

    I agree, I read a while back they could come preloaded with spyware.

    I'm running AVG with no issues.
    Not tried those two.

    I don't use AVG on my mobiles but I imagine it's ok. Malwarebytes might be worth a quick install and scan

    That's a good result I was hoping that there wouldn't be anything suspicious on there, for everyone's sake.

    Some of the Chinese phones really do look worth the money. The only thing that would probably upset me slightly [because I'm a Nexus whore] is having to live with an older version of Android. My son wouldn't give a monkeys though if his games run ok and he can watch YouTube!

    With that said, I don't know if there is CyanogenMod Rom for these devices...

    If you look up the frequencies for whatever network you will be using it on. Then buy a phone that supports those frequencies.

    I was pretty confident it would be all clear.

    Of course this is only one brand from one supplier. Would be best to scan anything that is purchased for peace of mind.
