Something to keep in mind when buying phones directly from China(usually HK or Shenzhen) or on Ebay, it's caveat emptor(buyer beware).

It's worth reading the forum sticky about Chinese phones as well...

The ZTEs sold in the West, e.g. UK, USA, all have Google Play. However the phones sold in China do not have Play. Same with Huawei.

Lenovo is certainly not an off-brand. One of the world's largest PC makers, and their phones are very popular in China. However Lenovo and Xiaomi are only sold in China and SE Asia AFAIK.
