I'd rather pay a few extra dollars and purchase from CECT Shop.

I will now only use Aliexpress for inexpensive items such as a bumper case for a phone.

Best of luck.
I am sorry to hear that too. Pretending to ship, that is the absolute worst. Last time I was ripped off on Aliexpress I must have spent thirty hours resolving it, in four rounds. Always getting the same message from customer service "We will fix this right away", and the seller giving nothing but radio silence. And he is still allowed to trade on their platform.

Thanks for the good luck wishes. I will need it.

There's quite a bit of bad whispers coming out of forums here and there. First, problems in cold weather. Second, potential screen damage from humidity? Both of these would be due to poor sealing. Is there a case that can fully seal the device?

As tempting as it is, I can't buy something that's that badly made. But at the same time I need a bit more than a rumor to be sure.
Ay, caramba! I plan to use the Hisense A5 Pro for all things books. E-books, audiobooks, and I listen to audiobooks outside, with the phone in my pocket, in cold weather. Could you point us to the place where it says it gets trouble in cold weather? If it has such problems, I sure would like a tight case. I use a see thru pouch for my old phone, if I use it for audiobooks, in bad weather.

EDIT: If there is an honest soul who wishes to swap his Hisense A5 Pro for my Hisense A5 Pro CC I am in.

EDIT2: Fool me once ... I got a note from the seller that he'll accept a return and refund, of 300$ of the total of 355.05$. I will send it back, but it might very well end up with the seller claiming he's never got it, and all is lost. Hoping for the best, though. Getting the refund.

I just ordered the Pro CC from CECT-shop.

What'll be interesting is the performance of the device. Does the fingerprint scanner work better than iPhone6 (I hate it! My fingers are apparently unrecognizable.) Does the NFC work? Does the face recognition work? Do the Bluetooth and WiFi have separate antenna's? Most of all: How it reads?!

Anyone any experience to share?

Hope that works out for you.

If, for some reason, you end back up with the A5 Pro CC, I have just discovered a setting which I hadn't previously noticed. It is under the Display and Brightness area in Settings. It is called Classic E-ink Screen Mode. When you enable this mode, the phone only displays blacks and whites and greys, just like on a regular e-ink device. I don't notice the grid effect as much with it enabled, not that it bothers me anyway.

I don't know whether this feature has been there all along or whether it is new because I recently received a firmware update after not having had the phone connected to the internet in months.
