Cheap mobile phones: Quality of the cell phones you will find in AliExpress
- What does AliExpress do to ensure stores sell premium quality product?
AliExpress tries its hardest to make sure that their clients are always satisfied with the mobile phone they have bought. It is for this reason that their main objective is to offer great quality products as well as a wide variety of them to cover every consumers needs. AliExpress is well aware that unsatisfied customers that do not trust the company can have a considerable impact on the company’s reputation.
As a result, customer protection is at the top of the list and is something that AliExpress takes very seriously. They achieve trustworthiness and legitimacy by applying strict conduct rules that all sellers must abide to. If they break the rules AliExpress will not hesitate in shutting the store down and giving all the customers their money back. By doing this AliExpress filters out bad reputation sellers and rewards those who have great quality products and customer service like Goldway.

Thus, you do not have to worry when you buy in AliExpress, once you have made your purchase you will automatically entre AliExpress’ buyer protection plan. If you receive a product that is not up to standard (a rare occurrence with mobile telephones) you can open a dispute with AliExpress.
- Some of our thoughts regarding the mobile phones sold in AliExpress ?
Our thoughts on the matter is that AliExpress does indeed offer great quality and durable mobile phones for very cheap prices (a huge variety of them too). Nearly all of the the cell phones you will find are unlocked (with no contract attached to them) and come with 3G and 4G technology; of course in most cases they will come with either the Android or iOS operating system. A final thought on the 3G and 4G connectivity before continuing. Make sure you look at the technical specifications of the product and pay attention to the wave frequencies of the phone. Depending on the country your 3G and 4G won’t work because they run off other frequency. Thus make sure that the frequencies on the phone you want to buy are compatible with your home country.
If you have any doubts (as small as they may be) do not hesitate to contact the seller so he can resolve them quickly.
