With Christmas almost upon us, our Gearbest team is delighted to list what we consider to be the top smartphone deals this holiday season. Each phone is impressive in its own right, but together, they form a near-unbeatable group of techs. High-tech, high-spec but low-cost, you won't find a better list of smartphones this side of Christmas.


#1: Ulefone Metal 4G Smartphone (Ulefone Metal)

It's a 5.0 inch sized metallic phone. The curved design provides a great premium feel, ideal for longer use. This attention to detail is also seen in the unique texture on the power button, designed to help you distinguish it from the volume keys by tactile feel alone.

The Metal 4G is equipped with 8 powerful Cortex-A53 cores at a 1.3GHz clock speed; more than enough to fulfill daily tasks such as web browsing, social networking, and gaming.

The Mali-T720 GPU and 1080P display is perfect for your gaming experience. On 720P HD, games will run up to 60% faster. Enjoy premium gaming wherever you go.
