With Ulefone Be X, You can now Buy an Octa-core Android Smartphone for $90

Ulefone_Be_X_vs_Moto_GYou’re probably unlikely to notice much difference between a quad core and octa core processor, especially with only 1GB RAM, and Moto G build quality is likely to be significantly better. The price difference is probably bigger, since Be X actually costs $89.99 including shipping, while Moto G (2nd Gen) price is now closer to $180 shipped.

You can find Ulefone Be X smartphone for $89.99 and up on GearBest, GeekBuying, DealExtreme, and some other resellers. You may also want to check out the manufacturer page for further details.

More importantly, the Moto G actually gets updates AND has 720p screen. There is no way in hell I will ever go below, again.

What means “dual band wifi”, if both moto and ulefone doesn’t list 802.11a? Both claim “802.11b/g/n” only. The table is wrong.
