The real deal: http://www.chinatron...U970/cPath,1_79 again, I don't know if this site is legit :/

only problem with this version is that its TD-SCDMA

anyway the link i posted for this model is even cheaper 150 pound...

Personally, I'm quite tempted to buy a new Motorola Atrix 4G off ebay, root it, install ICS and boom! The same specs as the Grand X except this has 1Gb of RAM! :D (and yes a slightly smaller screen) Thoughts anyone?

is there an ics rom for the atrix, it seems like a pretty good idea but i cant find any ics roms on this site

and is this a usa only phone? i didn't know that this phone was released in the uk?

Yeah the phone is US only as far as i know but apparently it works fine in the UK: http://androidforums.com/motorola-atrix-4g/298927-us-import-work-uk.html here's a link to an atrix cm9 ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1445052 And here's a review of cm9 (relatively early build from March, best i could find) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUfdrHwzwuU

i think i might do the same thing, after checking on ebay the atrix will work out cheaper then the zte grand x, seems like a very solid idea

edit: after reading through some of the cm9 threads, there are still a lot of bugs with ics, so there might be a few bugs with JB. i would've bought an atrix in the next couple of weeks if i knew there was a fully (everything) working cm9 rom.

An unboxing and first impressions video on the Grand X [media=]

this guy says it is 1.2ghz and records 1080p, if this is true it should also have 1gb of ram, like the Asian version (u970)

well worth the money if the above checks out

as far as i can see virgin media have made a massive fail announcing this with lower wrong specs lol

Don't think they got it wrong you know. ZTE even mention the lower specs on their UK devices website for the Grand X http://www.ztedevices.co.uk/specifications-grand-x.html

if that guy in the review "leodee" had of used antutu he would of been able to get the proper specs...

if its not true what he says he is miss leading people...

to be fair it would make sense for zte to dumb down the grand X in the uk

the only difference between it and the ERA was the tegra 3 chip set...

now there is a much bigger difference...

someone should leave a comment asking that guy to check antutu for the specs,

but if you noticed... his quadrant score was above the lg optimus 2x by quite a bit...

and they apparently have the same specs... (512mb ram 1ghz tegra 2)

so why score higher ? (1gb ram 1,2ghz ???????)

who knows, you cant believe anything until you see it they days...

Does the version of Android running on the device make that much of a difference to these benchmark tests? Maybe because the Grand X has a stock ICS rom it scored higher? I dunno.

I set one of my slaves in the London office out to have a look, Phones4U are selling them, according to him its £269.99 without a SIM or £249.99 + £10 on Orange, T-Mobile or Vodafone. they are all SIMM free..

He also said he asked in Virgin Mobile shop and they where fairly clueless..

Well ZTE bullsh*tted about the specs, so I'm not surprised they told us the wrong price too.

lol, you just to laugh at those prices... its nowhere near worth the price of £269.99

i got my lg optimus 2x for £199.99 brand new sim free, and that was a year ago...

what happen to the big announcement where virgin media said it would be £189.99 from them on PayGo?

zte need to remember why they got where they are right now... affordable good spec phones...

if they bring there prices to close or the same as Samsung, htc, lg etc... they will kill there sales,

people will never choose zte over the likes of Samsung or htc...

you can get a brand new galaxy s2 for £260...
