      Offering replacement for faulty units is doing things wrong? Other phone brands would call you crazy and pretend the problem doest exist for 2 years until they are forced to acept it(yes im talking about the iphone faulty batteries)

        Agreed, but it’s not the cheapest or easiest option to return a phone these days. Add the almost requisite tracking and it soon becomes uneconomical. Postage is never compensated.

    At least this time they take responsibility about the issue, with Alife S1 battery problem they don’t gave me any solution.
