User Reviews and Opinions


  1. I bought Gtel mx6 from one of your guys, i had issues with that phone from day one but he kept saying it was normal. I dont think i can trust GTEL anymore. the phone needs to be charged multiple time a day. Am actually shopping around for a new phone but am scared i’ll waste money again

  2. GTel 8s is a reliable phone in terms of battery it takes not less than a day with power. I just want the GTel people to put the functions like SMART GESTURES, shake to answer and three fingers to hide like what they used to do on other phones for example SL7.
