SNAIL W3D ALREADY IN STOCK?!
« on: September 08, 2016, 06:34:25 pm »
I found this, guys:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Slim-Phablet-Snail-W3D-Smartphone/dp/B018ZKZVKU
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DHL-Fast-Delivery-Snail-W3D-4G-FDD-LTE-3D-Game-Cell-Phone-MTK6595-Octa-Core-Android/32423765055.html

I could say this is scam, but these are two nice stores. What do you think, guys? BTW still being too expensive, just 3D screen isn't worthy.

The first one seems like a scam, considering the shop's reputation.
The second ones seems like it's a mislabel. If someone's interested in the W3D they can order from there and tell us - generally, if a shop in Aliexpress doesn't have the item it claims it has, the seller will ask you to cancel your order. I've had that happen multiple times.

I suppose, they have to do a little bit of acting to make their post(s) more believable. I will never trust these Asian people. Particularly the Chinese from China or who live in America.

I think this device will never come out. And if it does, at least it should come with better soecs consdiering the price. There are much better MTK chips than the one included in this Snail 3d, like helio x20 for example (or even helio x10 if they want to go cheaper)

Hi Guys, I contacted the seller, and here is what he said, copy and pasted from my message center on ALIEXPRESS. Didn't take a long time to respond, about 5 minutes.

Here is a link to the phone on sale at TaoBao Shop. Below there are users that bought the phone, giving reviews, and posting screenshots.

Certainly distribution has been very smal, or success. No strange seeing the price with specs. That MTK chipset is outdated.

Snail people should also improve firmware support and be more opened to community, that's what makes a device to become a good seller. They should take the example from GPD.

Well, that's super weird.
Still, it could be interesting. Is someone still planning on buying this or at least finding reviews? TaoBao says 12 users gave it 5/5, but no one gave it a detailed review.

I plan to buy but not anytime soon. Gave up on it releasing and money been spent. Now I gotta start from scratch.

Guess it's back to posting sales on Amazon and eBay.

Thanks for the heads up Leaderbell! If you are a rep from Snail, and I hope you are, then do you know if it will be released for sale in the US Amazon market?

Well, at least it has a headphone jack! LOL!

Sadly not. Asked for that links to Snail Games USA Channel on YouTube, without answer. I'm just a follower of W3D. BTW, as an interesting info, that 3D screen technology was developed by SuperD. Curiously, SuperD official page don't exist anymore, at least since first date change announcement of W3D (around september 2014, i guess).

I suppose you need to ask snail for an international firmware.
