29 posts in this topic

First off, is the Alcatel AK47 (what a stupid name) the same device as the Alcatel OT-986? How are people's experiences with the site android-sale.com? If they are legit, £193.60 is a great price for a device this powerful! Too good to be true? I reckon so, thoughts and opinions please :)

I am using a Chineese version of the phone. Here is a short review.

Thank you! That was informative, looks like a really nice device :) Any idea where/how I can get one from a trusted source? (I live in the UK).

Shame it won't cost that much here in UK after adding what-you-ma-call-it TAX & VAT on top... We be looking at least 250£... So the ZTE Grand X from Virginmobile will look more appealing to us in the UK!... Just my opinion!...

2pence done... :P
