Remember Neo? Well there slim Android phone which was promised to also come with Windows OS is now discounted to only $120.
A few years ago, Neo were right up there with JiaYu and UMi as upstart phone makers. The Neo N003 wasn’t a bad phone, but was the last time we really saw a flagship device from them. For 2014 they kept their profile low and aimed at the mid-range market with the launch of the Neo M1.
Gizchina News of the week
The M1 had a look warm acceptance from smartphone fans, despite it’s slim design, Sony cameras and promised Windows OS (which is still unavailable). With the year heading to a close Neo have cut prices on the Neo M1 from $180 to $120 in an attempt to attract customers.
Personally I would wait for 64Bit LTE phones to arrive, or go for an iNew V3 Plus, but there offer is there for anyone wanting to take it up.[ Neo Mobile Via GizChina.it ]
I got this phone from the pre-sales discount and I can’t recommend the phone to others (for that price)… The camera is far worse that the one listed on the specifications and also software updates are lagging behind. I do have to say it’s a nice slim phone design wise but the brand has lost my support because of the reasons above.
Also the forum on their website is dead, a representative from Neo hasn’t been on the forum for months.
They lost my support when their billing malfunctioned. As a result I didn’t get the phone on discount. The discount was lower than claimed. At the end of the day I was happy not to get one
120$ is still far too expensive… I grabbed a Leagoo Lead 1 (which is basically the same hardware and very similar design but 5.5inch) for under 70$ on “Singles Day”.
