PaulSS's review of Banggood - www.banggood.com

★☆☆☆☆

“Warning do not buy a phone from Banggood.com”

Written on: 22/12/2016 by PaulSS (3 reviews written)

I purchased a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro which most people will know is a decent spec phone. The price I paid was not insignificant but was fair for a decent phone. However the item supplied by Banggood.com came with a modified Android 5 skin (MIUI OS). Embedded in the software were at least two malware apps. They were in the “system” area of the operating system. Under normal circumstances (unless you root the phone) the system folder in Android is not accessible. As a result for most users this Malware is permanent. During the first week or two I just noted the odd occasion when adverts popped up but soon after it got to a stage where ads were popping up very regularly and having a major impact on phone use. At times it gets so bad that the adverts overwhelm the phone and there is no other option but to reboot. If Banggood were honest and honourable they would have pointed out that their price was dependant on you accepting a sub optimal product which frankly becomes unusable. My advice would be as Banggood are so untrustworthy I would not buy products from them.
Beware of "independent reports" posted that are grammatically comical - they are all one review and are characterised by over the top enthusiasm. They are of questionable origin - perhaps employees?
