Coolpad F1 8297w - Review / Info / Software / Custom Roms

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

My Coolpad F1 is dying - can anyone recommend a good China phone around £100 to replace the 8277w?

How is it dying?

Battery or something else?

I have a spare battery that was never used in case that's of any use and you're welcome to it (subject to reasonable P&P costs).

Or maybe there's something else wrong with it?

I presume you're already aware of Kimovil for searching for Chinese phones?

I usually use that and then check reviews when looking for something new...

Hope this helps.

@dalyer Yes, for some reason batteries don't seem to last long in my F1.

 

I'm onto my third replacement battery - they all end up bloating and suddenly cutting the power.  The current one is bulging quite a bit, putting pressure on the screen causing it to bend.  Other smartphones don't seem to destroy batteries like this one does!

 

Didn't know about that website, will take a look thanks.

 

Do you know if they are clamping down on import tax on stuff coming in from China these days? I've been hit recently by stuff coming from the US :(

LeTV LeEco Pro 3 Elite x722 - great phone after Coolpad F1 at really good price.

I use it since few months. Some other F1 owners bought x722 or other LeTV models, too.

@dalyer Hi, do you still have the spare F1 battery available? I tried to PM you, but it didn't work.

 

My F1 battery is totally dead now, and the one from China I've ordered will probably take a month to arrive.

I don't know why PM didn't work.

Yes - I still have the battery.

You are welcome to it - where are you located just to assess P&P costs?

I'll see if I can get PM working if you want to follow up on this.

Sorry - didn't get a chance to check the P&P costs to UK over the weekend - will do so this week.

I can't seem to see how to enable private messaging here. 

In fact I don't see any PM options at all for some reason.... :-| 

 

Regarding import taxes/duties I'm not sure what the story is (at least here in Ireland) but I recently ordered a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 to replace my Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which I am passing on to somebody else and I will probably find out soon if that gets stopped. :-)

Try clicking on the below menu option, maybe messenger just needs re-activating:

Items from China/Asia used to be pretty good for avoiding tax attention (due to sheer volume of post I guess), but I recently got hit hard on a watch from Singapore.

 

Thanks.

Regarding import taxes/duties I'm not sure what the story is (at least here in Ireland) but I recently ordered a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 to replace my Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which I am passing on to somebody else and I will probably find out soon if that gets stopped. 🙂

Ha ha - wouldn't you know it - I got caught this time and had to pay an extra €50 (€40 VAT + €10 post office handling fee) on delivery.

Bit of a bummer but still cheaper than buying locally (a few places now stock Xiaomi phones including the Note 5 here in Dublin nowadays).

However a colleague said that he imported a load of 3D printer parts and they got through OK but then he got an additional small part in an envelope which was stopped and charged.

So it looks like it's still pot luck but I presume that they're wiser to packages coming from the likes of China/HK etc. these days and are more likely to pick them out for inspection...?

 

BTW - apologies @KennyPowers for the delay in sending the battery - definitely this week. P&P seems to be only €1.50 so don't worry about it.
