I will start this off with the obvious thing I usually do. Compare this to ANY phone in the United States for these prices. Sure, you could get a great for for $100 with a two year contract, but then you’re getting charged an extra $25 a month JUST for being under contract. We’re talking about unlocked phones here. This pricing is unheard of here in the United States.
There’s also not a single phone sold in the United States that uses a 4300 mAh battery. That will get you a solid two days of battery life. You don’t even have to make sure you charge it at night!
But that’s the Mlais MX Base. If battery life is your thing, that’s all you. For me, the Mlais M7 is what’s catching my eye because I’m all about the camera.
The Mlais M7 uses a Sony IMX135 Exmor RS sensor, which is the same sensor found in the rear camera of the Nexus 6 and the OnePlus One, except it’s a quarter of the price of the Nexus 6 and half the price of the OnePlus One.
Then there’s the RAM. 2 GB is plenty, which is what the Mlais MX Base uses, but the 3 GB in the Mlais M7 is sheer power. Combine that with a 1.7 GHz octa core processor and this phone is a beast!
Consider this: You can grab a Mlais M7 for the price of a Moto E. Sure, the Moto E is OK for a budget phone, but the Mlais M7 is good as an overall phone. You could easily pay $500 for this thing.
Then you have the Mlais MX Base, which you can grab for the price of a cheap prepaid phone that I can’t even think of a brand name for.
This is an awesome deal. The phones are unlocked, so you know that they’ll work on AT&T or T-Mobile or whoever your carrier is. Just pop the SIM in there.
