Fool me once

Strong advice for you, if you’re ever tempted to go for one of those insanely cheap but seemingly high-spec Chinese Government phones: DON’T.

Case in point here. Oooooh look at all those lenses! Oooooh it’s got a Sony sensor!

Let me tell you from actual experience buying one of these – and it also had a Sony sensor. The entire experience is WEAK. And the updates and/or support, after a year, are pretty much non-existent. As for the camera itself, the photos were incredibly underwhelming. Having a Sony sensor does not automatically make it a great phone. It’s the equivalent to putting Continental tyres and alloy wheels on an Austin Metro. You have to know what you’re doing as a manufacturer to process that Sony sensor photo within the phone, and trust me, Chinese Government manufacturers don’t have a fucking clue. The photos were drab and listless, and the colours were washed out.

Furthermore, after I gave the phone away to my friend, he told me it suddenly started shutting down, and loads of weird code started appearing. I joked it was probably sending all his contacts and messages back to Chinese Government servers – although that’s probably not too far from the truth (as that’s been known to happen).

Avoid disappointment, and just go higher.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
