How do you guys come to own a S8??

All shops list it as *out of stock* or *unavailable*.
Was it available for a short time? Or have you gotten special pre-series-devices?

Hi,

I'm in a real strange situation. I've placed my order on the 6th of September but the status says that it is still in process. I've asked explanations to Gearbest and they told me that Elephone have not give to them the amount of phones that they had ordered.

I read on the Elephone's facebook page that other users have the same problem. We all find ourselves in a wierd situatiion where people who bought the phone quite after us have already got it.

Is there any Elephone employee that could please give us some explanation and a clue on when we could receive our orders? It's been a month and a half...

I doubt that.
It says "Ships on Nov 8", which is Gearbest's way of saying "We don't have any but we sell them to you anyway".

The "xxx pieces left" is just the number that can be ordered for the flash-sale-price. It has nothing to do with the amount in stock.

It was a presale but they didn't say it was a presale. And as a result they have massively over sold the phones. The first batch seem to have been sent out from pot luck. I got mine last week after a 3 week wait. I ahve spoke to people who ordered before me but still haven't got theirs.

Got mine from the Gearbest pre-order as well. It was shipped on Sept 27 and I received it on Oct 9. The first batch is sold out, no idea when they will be getting new ones.

Gearbest showing "stock" is bollocks. They haven't got any. They are just generating money.

Quite right. When I ordered mine weeks ago it went round the numbers 3 times. Whilst telling me mine hadn't been sent as they didn't have any stock
