Has anyone seen any of these 5G phones that are advertised on Wish? These phones seem to start at around £50.00 upwards. I know the old saying of if it's too good to be true it usually is but I've got itchy fingers. I've got a good Oneplus 6T McLaren in the UK which is faultless but I just fancy something new without spending 100's of pounds. Has anyone tried any?

I've had one a few years back mate, it worked great In all fairness, i didn't get it off wish tho, theres a utube channel called chigz tech reviews, he reviews alot of stuff like that I think, he breaks down the specs ect... might be worth a try but for 50 quid it's worth a shot, I have orderd from wish, I ordered a phone case, only took 3 months to come :disappointed: i actually forgot all about it :ROFLMAO:

I wouldn't get from wish, from what I've heard they aren't the best. I have bought phones on aliexpress etc before. I had a Xiaomi mi for a few years and never let me down until I dropped it in the rappids at a theme park in spain, my son has also had a few of their Redmi phones. You can now get Xiaomi phones via UK carriers which appears to have pushed their prices up some what though.

I'm a oneplus person myself having had the 3T then the 6T Mclaren and my son has the Nord N10 5G. Although it does not work on 5G on the O2 network. I would really like the Oneplus 9 but uk prices of £629.00 and into the £800 for the pro i really cannot warranty spending that much when I have a perfectly good phone. I started the thread as it was just something cheap to play with.

When my contract ended 3 years ago, I got the xiami Mi 8 lite from the Argos refurbish store on the bay! £119.99 sealed and brand new when it arrived, definitely wouldn't change it brilliant phone with tons of update and support

The only problem with Doogee phones is that they weigh a ton, would make a good house brick if they were a bit lighter lol

Anyway what does 5G offer thats better than 4G? is it all wi-fi network?

And remember the more expensive mobile you have the more chance you have of it being pinched or you being beaten up to take it off you.
