China: Vargo VX3 - NFC and 6 + 128 GB for $ 115

I cannot call this news a set of words, VargoThe VX3 is not a new smartphone. At least at the end of last year there were already mentions about him in the vast web. But I discovered it just now. And I can not share, because it hurts so strange. 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of flash memory, and even with NFC for $ 115? It does not happen.

We go to Yandex.Market and trying to pick up a smartphone with the same amount of memory and with NFC. The cheapest thing I see is Xiaomi Mi Note 3. It will be a bit cheaper on Aliexpress, but still around $ 220, i.e. twice as expensive as the Vargo.

So what kind of beast is this very Vargo VX3?

It is a modern, elongated screen, though not the highest resolution. S-IPS, 5.7 ″, 720 × 1440.

A typical and also quite modern looking dual camera, sort of like 13 + 13 MP. Frontalka - 8 MP. I would not wait for good pictures, however, for such money in the device from a noname manufacturer.

The battery is normal - 3500 mAh.

And then weird things start. MediaTek Helio P20 - a chipset for quite serious devices. But only for devices two or three years ago. Where the old man dug out - a mystery.

And Android - to match the chipset - the seventh ...

But - NFC. They say it is quite working.

What kind of company is Vargo and where did they get it from?strange device - I do not know. I can assume that we bought some unsold remnants of some model from someone, stuck our logo and tried to install a “non-Chinese” Android. Is it possible to use this? I do not know, not sure. On the other hand, the money is absolutely ridiculous, and you can risk it.

  • Banggood - $ 115
  • Aliexpress - $ 120
  • GeekBuying - $ 120
