Our Take

Needless to say, the C1 is offering a great set of specifications and features for the price. But considering how Ringing Bells got surrounded with controversies, it is hard to say whether ChampOne C1 is a scam or not. It remains to be seen whether this company which was never heard of before would be able to deliver what it is promising or not. If you happen to order one for yourself, make sure you stick to cash on delivery option and do let us know about your experience with the same.
