Till now all I see from this company is pre-sale marketing. Has anyone (real customers I mean) actually "experienced" their first model?
How is the software optimization (for a "new and ambitious brand" it should be 101% optimized) on that one?
Will they offer OTA updates?
Did they even start to ship out the thor?.... To many question marks and pre-sale after pre-sale. No real life experience.

Bottom line:
Would I take a ~200$ chance on this nice spec but completely unknown Veenee Apollo Lite? The answer is Yes!
Would I keep 200$ locked for months in a unknown release date pre-sale? Don't think so.

They seem to be pre financing from pre sales... Just an opinion.

PS. Vernee changed the official page design " Due to the copyright problem..." No phones have reached customers and they already have copyright problems?! (http://bbs.vernee.cc/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=4&fromguid=hot&extra=&mobile=2).

It's a real shame that the TF card has to share a socket with one of the SIM cards. I would be ordering one if this were not the case.

It will be for sure a 2in1 slot. In this last months, many brands using this tray 2in1, so cheap and no trouble to who have 1 sim and 1 sd card.. With 32gb internal memory and OTG, you can also use 2 sims, but your internal SD must be used externally with adapter and OTG cable when needed [emoji20] [emoji6]

Anyone understands GearBest's Pre-Sale deal on this one?

You have to place a deposit of 29,99$ until June 13th and on the 25th you will know whether you'll get an extra 30 bucks cash back or not.

What happens to the 29,99$ if you don't win the cash back deal and how much will you in the end pay for the phone? 230$? 260$?

Thanks!

Apollo Lite adopts all-new Samsung S5K3P3 camera with PDAF function. As a result, the focus speed increases by 7 times.

In particular, the focus ability in night is greatly improved, fast enough to capture every beautiful moment.

9. Fast image formation
