Every once in a while we cover newsworthy phablets and phones that get prices simply too good to be true. They usually come from China and today we have two such models, detailed below. I’m talking about the Oukitel U8 phablet with a 5.5 inch 2.5D display and the Mlaix MX Base, a 5 inch HD handset with big battery.


The 5.5 incher stands out through its fingerprint scanner, metallic frame and the great price of just $113.99, plus it also brings a 13 megapixel camera at the back. The Oukitel U8 includes a quad core MediaTek MT6735 processor, clocked at 1 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, GPS, 4G LTE and a 2850 mAh battery. In spite of being smaller, at 5 inches, the Mlais MX Base gets a beefy 4300 mAh battery.


It also has an infrared port, 8 MP camera, 5 MP selfie shooter and 2 GB of RAM. The CPU is exactly the same flavour of MediaTek as the other model’s and the handset measures 9.9 mm in thickness and weighs almost 200 grams, a tribute paid to the big battery. This smartphone costs an excellent $109.99. I should also mention that this model is available for that price only if you enter the promotional code “MlaisMX” at the checkout on EverBuying.net. Oukitel U8 stays priced at $113.99, on the same retailer.
