I ordered mine from aliexpress. Some of the stores there already have the stock from the first production batch, and if they haven't sold out yet you might get the phone by 1-2 weeks. Mine has not been dispatched, but the seller already has the phones in stock and will ship them in a few days. I still need to wait a little longer because the phone needs about a month to reach my place.

From its specs, performance, and price, I say it's a very good phone. I cancelled my Umi zero order and switched to this phone.

I also ordered for my wife the Meizu M1 Note which has almost similar specs. It's still in pre-sale, and its availability is not yet confirmed.

I've visited the site before but never bought anything from them because there are stores at aliexpress that sale items cheaper than them. But very careful if you want to buy anything from aliexpress. Make sure you read the negative ratings first, then you can decide whether the store can be trusted or no.

My S3 has been shipped today. I still need to wait about a month until the parcel arrive at my place

My order was shipped 19 days after I placed the order. It's not the store's fault, they are waiting the phones to be sent by Jiayu.

Not out of the box. The factory doesn't install playstore, but most sellers would probably installed themselves. The vendor from which I bought it does this.
