This is an awesome little cube for $3.50! I wasn't expecting much, honestly I just wanted a 2x2 to round out my collection. I was pleasantly surprised. It turns very smooth, cuts corners very well. Probably not a pro-level speed cube, but you'll definitely get your money's worth if you're just an average hobby cuber.

Catches a lot, low quality plastic, and pops frequently
The Guanpo is a great first 2 by 2, but not for people like me who average sub 6.The cube is simply way too locky to be used by fast solvers. Also, mine frequently gets internal pops and the only way to stop this was to tighten the cube to the point where it's impossible to turn, and doing that would make the cube useless.

Gr8 Cube For Newbs Like Me
personally i'm not the greatest cuber so i chose this cheap alternative. Out of the box it felt dry but fast and totally controllable. After some lubing it has gotten much better with a smooth crispy feeling.

This cube had sandy feeling right out of the box, and I found it a bit tight for my liking. But after loosening it and lubing it the cube turned out pretty nice for the price I payed for it.

This cube can pop, but that+the price+crispy fast feel=okay. This is my back up of backup mains, and much prefer the dayan, but for beginners this cube is good.

This Cube feels like a Lingpo mixed with a dayan. Yj had really surprised me with this Cube. IT has a smooth buttery feel that is really Nice. This Cube has spectacular corner cutting, over 45. This Cube has really showed the improvement from Yj, considering they dont have very good Cubes. I highly recommend this. The cheapest on the market is the guanpo

This is a nice fast puzzle with loose tensions and feels like a tangpo and lubing is even better.

This is a good cube for beginners who want something other than a rubiks, but i would not recommend this to speed-cubers. The inner pieces pop way too much. I got this cube a a comp, and during that same comp, i had 9 pops of the inner pieces when i was using the cube.

This cube is a lot better than Rubik's Brand, but is also pretty bad for compared to something like a Weipo. Good for beginners who want a first 2 by 2 cube with decent performance.

An okay 2x2x2
The guanpo feels like a cheap 2x2x2, with a hard plastic feel. Corner cutting is not somthing awesome, it cuts under 45°, but not 45, and the reverse is not good. This cube is really fast. When turning really fast, you are gonna have minor catches, and that's a bit ennoying. Overall, this cube is good for beginners who want a cheap 2x2x2.

YJ GuanPo 2x2
The GuanPo is the first 2x2 speedcube to come at such a small pricetag. Out of the box, it was fast (very fast) and felt smooth with a sandy background. It did some with the standard Moyu stock stickers and I have replaces them with my shades. After some work on this puzzle, it is good cube overall. It has decent corner cutting, turning is great (and you might want to consider slowing down the cube with some heavy lube), and the price is amazing. My complaints are that the turning speed is way too fast and that lock ups are frequent. Overall, it is great cube for those that want to begin learning how to solve 2x2.

decent performance, amazing price.
This cube is probably the best budget 2x2 there is right now. Although there are minor lockups and pops only on loose tensions, this cube does surprisingly well for its price without lube, the cube feels airy, almost hollow in a way. the corners are not filled in, but they can be best described as torpedoes with minimalist caps
TLDR: its cheap and pretty good

YJ GuanPo 2x2
Like the YJ GuanLong; this cube is slow, scratchy and locks up a ton during solves. But for the price, it is OK. I would only give this to a beginner who just wants a first 2x2 that has OK performance.

Great for beginners
This is an excellent cube for the price. It is fast and fluid for the most part, but catches occasionally. Overall, it is a great choice for beginners and people on a budget, but I don't see any world-class people using it as their main.
