    That's easy one of those or another site that has the cheapest price including delivery cost.

    What about delivery time?

    I only used them once but it took an age to get everything I ordered!

    Standard delivery is about 30 jours
    Fast delivery (less than one week) cost more.
    But this will be improved as Gearbest is going to build warehouses in Europe.

    yes I've bought from gearbest to and they delivered ( to the UK) in about 1 week...I was quite surprised as I was expecting around 30days!!

    A couple of months to receive a mobile phone of which we were told it had been sent out weeks before, to then be told it has been redespatched?! o_O
    Other cheaper items we received sooner but still didn't match Amazon delivery times!

    Though we did save 20 Euros on the price of the mobile compared with the Amazon price! (y)
    That was the reason to try GearBest! :)
    Also because the phone was reviewed by @robertojorge and GearBest was the link he gave.

    I have purchased from 2 of them. The cheapest Ali but customer service sometimes not that good. Follows Banggood with very good prices and better customer service. The difference in prices might be non existent depending on the product.

    I prefer Ali if amazon is not available, they are good price is is also fair on my opinion.
