    Actually just ordered this, so might be a little too late to ask for opinions. Haha..

    What is up with this phone, its features and its price? It is unbelievable. Anyone know who manufactures it and why it is so cheap? The story behind the phone?

    it looks like a cheap Chinese phone - in other words it was probably produced to look like something cool, but it'll probably break in 6 months

    Hm, just found out it is made by CECT, which is one of the largest cell manufacturers in China.

    I think it is a Galaxy Note rip-off.

    With 10 reviews, you end up with a 4.3 stars out of 5 so this can't be too shabby a phone. A lot of the reviewers say it's surprisingly sturdy for the price so I bet you end up happy with the purchase. Heck, most people upgrade within a year or two anyway, so I wouldn't be too concerned.

    They can easily submit fake reviews in order to boost the rating of the phone. It's a very common tactic. But I agree with everyone else that it looks really cheap.

    Well, had this phone for a day so shall write a quick review. Looks almost like a Galaxy Note. Uses 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, stock android. Navigation is smooth and easy. No problems installing apps/texting/email/web-surfing. I don't have a data plan, so not sure how it will link up to that. Cons, camera could be a bit better--but it is still rather usable. Call volume is a little soft, can't really hear in crowded areas. Can't connect to GPS for some reason--not sure whether it is because of phone issues or I am just a noob. Battery lasts around 24 hours with a 7hour sleep and pretty heavy usage during the day. Pretty happy so far in general. Let's see what happens in a few months. Will post an update if I remember. The exact model is CECT N8000.
