To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It might be tempting to purchase this phone based on its lower price and even though it might work well in the UAE which has led me to write a very positive review, please avoid purchasing from this seller at all costs if you intend to use the phone internationally.
The phone is blacklisted on US and UK networks; this means that the original owner had reported it as lost or stolen, has been involved in an insurance claim, or was part of an un-paid contract. It seems that these phones are bought cheap on a US network contract and sold here at a lower price. Once the contract is not honoured, the network puts a block on them or the owner reports them as stolen to get an insurance rebate.
