My son is looking to purchase a cell phone from a company called Sky Devices which is a fast-growing, mobile phone manufacturer developing smartphones with premium quality, at prices that any user can afford (according to website). Their mission is the sell unlocked GSM unlocked smartphones without the high costs. Has anyone purchased a phone through them? Also does Koodo support these phones?

Hi,

I can see all the devices mentioned on Sky Device website are low end devices and wont be perfect for day to day use. For sure they will work on Koodo if they support North America LTE bands. I would suggest buying a mid range motorola or Lg smartphone which would be a great choice as compared to the Sky devices. Take a look at moto g which is prices very less on Koodo. Second option would be nexus 5 if you can shell out some more money.

Thanks,
Navdeep

You don't need a compatible LTE band for the phone to work, just the UMTS bands.

If the phone in question support the 850/1900 UMTS bands, then it will work on Koodo. If you want LTE, you'll need the 1700/2100 LTE bands.

I would suggest against sky devices. If your son is with Koodo or will go to Koodo I suggest getting the Moto G on tab while it's still half off. You'll actually get updates too.

For decent, low-cost manufacturers, I'd recommend BLU.

At regular prices I concur. But if you can get a good deal on a Moto I always recommend it over anything else pretty much. Now's the time to grab a Moto g if you need a phone and are on a budget.

Most entry level Android smartphones will have limitations. Internal storage is the downfall across all entry level devices, including the third gen Moto G . When you factor in the size of the Android OS, a phone with expandable storage is a neccesity, (which the Moto G has). On some SKY devices the specs are rather outdated, (4 GB internal storage + 512 MB RAM - Fuego 5.0D), making the Android experience a frustrating one at best.


If the SKY phone fails for whatever reason, shipping it back to their factory could prove to be a time consuming and costly venture. If a Koodo phone fails and you're located near a Koodo kiosk, it may end up costing a few dollars in gas or bus fare. If the phone gets sent out for repair, loaner phones are available through Koodo, so you're not stuck without a phone. Lastly, if you're not satisfied with any phone from Koodo, you have the option to return it for exchange or a full refund within 15 days.

Or there's this thing...
