I just want to share a few insights I gathered from when I bought a (brandnew) Vernee Thor Plus through Ali Express, namely by their seller "vernee Official Store".

After only 2 months, the power button all of a sudden (and I mean it, there were no signs at all) did not work properly anymore. I examined the button very carefully, blew with air, sucked around, did whatever I could. I could not feel or see any small pieces. Then again, from one moment to the next, it worked again for a few hours, then again, it did not. There are thankfully other ways to lock and unlock your phone, and they work but they're not very smooth, compared to a physical button. A few weeks later, the button did not work anymore at all, zero, nada.

It took two more weeks until the phone died due to an empty battery out in (fairly) cold weather. Never been able to restart it since. Phone's gone, dead.

I have been discussing this with the seller of course, he offered me 20 USD, which will not buy me a new phone, will it. I cannot send it back to him for replacement or reparation, because I live in a region where our postal service does not allow you to send items with batteries by mail. The seller asked to have it repaired in a local shop, but did not want to cover more than 20 USD (it costs about 80 Euros, around 95 USD to repair, if even possible). So no go.

I had no use for the phone so I put it into pieces and discovered that Vernee's falsly advertising the battery size: it's "only" 5800 mAh, stated very clearly on the battery inside. That is 7% more than it really is.

When it comes to the seller: BE CAREFUL. Sneaky guy, not very responsive, cruel and not helpful by any means.

Happy to hear that you had better luck, hope it'll keep it that way.

Then again, the seller is just a piece of sh*t, not willing to help out.
