Best deals on the 2016 Singles Day Week - a full week of promotions on GearBest

Normally November would be a pretty boring month, as most new devices are announced in the previous month and everybody is waiting for December, with Christmas and New Year celebrations.

But there is something that changes that, two events that make an otherwise boring month into one that many people are waiting it for : Black Friday and it's Chinese counterpart Singles' Day.
Oh, yes, there's also Cyber Monday, but the first two seem to get the most attention lately.

So everyone is saving their pennies and waiting for these events hoping to get the best deal on various products that they keep their eyes on, and retailers know this and are preparing with months in advance, investing in people, hardware and negociating with suppliers to get the best deals...

Having said that, there will be a busy week for our friends at GearBest, with several promotions and thousands of products sold at a discounted price, so if you thought about purchasing a new gadget, this might be the time.

These are the main promotions:

Oh, and make sure to check out Gift Rain and the coupons.

Here are some interesting products found on these promotions :

Gearbest is preparing no less than 800 Xiaomi Air 12 Laptops - for just above the $500 mark.
This is an well-received device with a 12.5 inch IPS screen, an Intel Core m3-6Y30 Dual Core SoC and 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD, USB type-C and an 7.4V/5000mAh 37Wh Battery.

Another interesting device is the Chuwi Hi10 Pro tablet, featuring an 10.1 inch display (1920 x 1200) and offering both Windows 10 and Android 5.1 (Remix OS).
The device is powered by Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 (64bit,Quad Core) and comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM (expandable via SD card up to 128GB).
Gearbest has another 800 units reserved for this promotion, at $156.99 each.

Some interesting devices that are now on presale:

This is arguably the best phone announced in 2016, and the interest for the device is HUGE - just a few days ago the first batch was sold in just 10 seconds.
Everything seems to be carrefully thought of on this item: the high-end specs (6GB of RAM, 256GB ROM UFS 2.0, Snapdragon 821, 4400mAh, NFC) and the incredible screen. But only 10000 units will be manufactured each month and it will be very hard to get one if you live outside of China.
Gearbest has it now on presale (shipping after Dec 15th) and already sold almost 1000 units - if you have the budget and don't mind waiting for it this could be an excellent gift for someone close to you - or even for yourself.

Another interesting device currently on presale is the Azpen D1300 docking station, that comes with a built-in Qi Wireless charger and additional USB ports for charging two other phones/tablets and with a Bluetooth 4.0 HiFi speaker. The device can also be used to play music from an SD card or to answer calls if needed.

This could be another gift idea for the 2016 holidays.

As revealed in our unboxing, the Z83-4 from Minix is a solid device that until now was considered a bit pricey - if you wanted one now you no longer have that excuse NOT to buy it :-).
I use it daily, so shoot me an email/tweet/comment if you have any questions about it,.
