Additional Info: Right. I received this as a review device. It never updated. Inquiry to the factory rep informed me that the device sent is mistakenly an engineering sample. The device displays itself as a Coship Moly X5 (?) which does not exist. They never presented me with a solution. I have tried spoofing via Registry Edit to get this updated as impersonating a Lumia model or find the correct entries for Moly W5, but I never succeeded with this method either.

So this device is stuck at factory issue 10586.107

Still, it is very stable and pleasurable to use on this build. Makes a great backup or budget device. Very impressive build quality with a bit of style, rigid metal frame and very nice display. See my full review. This device is somewhat rare and the deficit of not updating does not prevent it from functioning. I found it pretty smooth for a budget model with Snapdragon 210.

I'm curious but the *.107 issue is something that really rubs me the wrong way. :(

I hear you... That's why the $65 when it it is Fine condition and BNIB retails for $199.

FWIW, I think the thing runs slicketdy good on 10586.107. If you can adjust to that being static it's a great device. There may be a way to change that, but I can't guarantee it and it probably takes a lot of hack power. Since there is no WDRT for the thing I just didn't push it beyond anything that a Hard Reset would not put right.

Here is a pic taken with the actual phone being offered. This is Lily, she wants you to buy this phone so her daddy will stop fiddling with it and pay more attention to her... (LOL, trust me, she's spoiled rotten already.)

Another indicator of thoughtful design on this phone is the bottom firing speakers...

From my full review:
...Finishing off on the bottom we have the in-call microphone, a micro 2.0 USB port and a pair of side by side speaker grills. The speaker is mono, but the placement on the bottom is a bonus for unimpeded sound when the phone is laid flat on a surface...
I found this arrangement far superior to a rear firing speaker when in call, listening to music or audio of any sort both in hand and when the phone is laid flat on a surface.
