    It is not the octo core specifically, but the 9695 chip with the LTE built in that I want.

    No, I spoke with my bank, set up another bank account. If I make purchases that are foreign or I do not know the source, I use that account, as it has limited funds and only has what I put in from my main account.

    Well, it arrived.
    But, It was NOT the phone I was looking for.
    it is one of these Original OFONE P7 5.0 inch screen Octa Core 2.0G Dual SIM Android smartphone 13MP In stock Free Shipping-in Mobile Phones from Electronics on Aliexpress.com

    And on top of that, the Phone processor is not as advertised. It is supposed to be MTK6595 It reports as a MTK6592 in some tools. It reports as MTK6572 faked as a MTK6592 in others. MTK6572 is only a Dual core This is advertised as Octo core. Cheap phone with fake and incorrect sales information!

    Will post more when the dispute is resolved.

    Moto G is a great phone. Quick, good looking and my screen stayed scratch free for 5 months. Until I dropped it off a table onto a hard floor and smashed the screen. Still works, looks awful and shed glass into your finger until I stuck a screen protector on it.

    I never trust these dodgy companies selling cheap phone like that I certainly wouldn't hand over over more than £100 to them. Even if it was an Octo-core etc... you would find something such as the battery would stop working very quickly (as they're made on the cheap). Nope not for me sometimes it's about quality not quantity.

    Hopefully you get it resolved but you may find it will cost a small fortune to send the phone back to them and then you have to hope and pray the company gives you your money back because if they don't theres not much you can do.

    Well, I opened a dispute saying that it was a fake, I wanted my money back and I was not returning it. The seller agreed! I have my refund. And a phone! I havw even managed to get Google play store working.
    I will be more careful next time.
