Ive used both, mainly Ebay as thats what they use for everything in Australia, and makes Trademe look as Archaic as NZ's economy, butter and milk.

 

Aliexpress Ive used a few times lately for asian market phones, no issues, I do like no transport costs provided its cheaper overall.

I agree with your comments about TM, which really does look like the overall look was designed by children. The idiotic Kiwi logo needs to go - or at least be seriously modernised - for a start. Inserting the word "Kiwi", the letters "nz" and pictures of Kiwis into company names/logos should be banned on the grounds of being far too trite.

 

I would not generally use either to buy a phone though, as I usually get them from the networks.

i use Bang Good mainly because the service is really good. NZ companies need to take note of how they handle returns and refunds.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

I bought my xiaomi note 3 from banggood. No problems ordering and delivery was reasonably prompt. The phone however had a custom ROM on it which was full of advertising (popups everywhere no matter what app you are running)and wouldn't upgrade ota - nasty stuff. Had to reflash to the official ROM which fixed everything but I shouldn't have had to in the first place.

yes banggood is, .... good hehe. i also like gearbeat. and goldway on aliexpress. none of them are always the cheapest prices though. if im buying high end i go with a better company, if im buying a $200 phone i go with whoever is cheapest (providing they dont have a terrible record)

I've always used Aliexpress (Dreami seller, but have heard Goldway is good) as my experience has been that sellers on eBay hardly ever respond to issue queries after the item has shipped out even though they are seasoned sellers. May be just my luck though :)
