Buying from China?

Recommended Posts

I just thought I start a thread relating to buying smartphones from chinese e-tailers such as fastcardtech, merimobiles & the likes...

First off I have been doing some googling and I haven't come across a huge amount of postings from forums in the US and UK ( such as here & XDA and the likes ) about these chinese sellers, so, here I am asking for some opinions and advice?!...

For people who have experience buying Chinese smartphones:

1. Where you got your smartphone from?...

2. What experience you had with shipping and import tax?...

3. The experience you had with the service from this seller?...

4. Whats the experience like with after sales service?...

5. Would you recommend them?...


These are just my initial thoughts and queries!... So, I might come up with other questions to ask... And, you're welcome to contribute any other information I might be interested to know as well!...

Look forward to reading what you have to say... And, thanks for posting/commenting... ;)
