The specs on that phone tillaz posted sound spectacular, but it's difficult to gauge the build quality or to know what the after sales support is like. Love the sound of the screen and camera though.

take a look at the oppo finder (worlds thinnest smart phone) from this company

its got better build quality than most zte devices... but that's not been hard to beat in the past lol

not all china based company's produce crappy knock off's lol, this company is similar to the manufactures of the Meizu MX

http://www.xda-devel...m/tag/meizu-mx/

everyone has to start somewhere... just look at zte, they where unheard of not that long ago...

now they are the 5th biggest smartphone manufacture in the world...

they sell more than LG & Sony, surprisingly

10 point multi touch on the oppo finder 5 and 6000+ on antutu. Someone on Youtube mentioned an overheating issue though.

i'm still undecided on what i'm getting next... just wish zte had released the era a couple of mouth ago, its starting to sound dated :(

na, that would defeat the whole idea of the kia-platform it uses... (same as the nexus 7 tablet)

its was made to get affordable tegra 3 devices on the market... same as the nexus 7 tablet @ £159.99

it wont be over £250... have a Google about the nvidia tegra 3 kia-platform

yes, it would in reality, but zte don't seem to be bothered... and here is why

the mimosa x (u970) released in china first at 1999 Yuan (£199.99) few month ago....

last week zte announced that the grand era (u985) will be released September in china , and said the price is 1999 Yuan (£199.99)

so as you can see they have already made the mimosa x obsolete

BUT, by the time the era hits the U.K the grand x will be around £149.99...

so there would still be a £100 differance in price betwen zte quad core and dual core devices

Hopeful logic ;)

i'v already been been told the price of the wcdma version, check a few posts up, but that was not from a UK source

just found out that the WCDMA version of the zte era will cost $385 / £240

the way things go over here with prices... they will probably try scamming us

yeah, i'm still interested.

i was thinking about that MI 2 (MIUI phone with 2GB RAM) but just seen its actually dual core, and way over priced

http://www.merimobil..._p/meri5722.htm

plus i'm going to avoid overseas shipping as its to much hassle, so the china phones are out of the question for me...

plus i want a phone with a good community, and think the era will have that.

i don't think we are going to get anything better for the price in the uk,

since huawei have developed there own quad core chip and those phones are around £400

and as far as i know there is nothing else in this price / spec rang heading to the uk...

but to be fair i would be more than happy with the specs of the zte v985 anyway, so its probably the device i will be getting

my god that looks insane.

"In addition to a 1,920x1,080 resolution, the phone will come with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, as well as a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor.....Other reported specs include a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, and a 2,500mAh battery pack. It will also reportedly feature 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of storage."

This thing looks insane. 441 DPI is better than retina bullshit on the iphones :P

And that quad core s4 is pretty much the best arm chip out there. Beats the tegra 3 by quite a bit.

Just to clarify, the Finder does not have a resolution of 1920x1200 - that would be insane, it's resolution is actually 800x480

Source: http://android-sale.com/oppo-finder.html

Source: http://micgadget.com/26420/oppo-finder-preview-unboxing-and-hands-on/

Disappointing - I know - As someone who has a 15'' 1920x1200 laptop this sort of resolution I'd sell a child for.
