There are multiple finders? Holy crap! I am selling my Grand X if that thing actually comes out. 1920X1200 ON A PHONE. Excuse me while I go clean up the mess in my pants.

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

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

the oppo finder 5 actually has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p)

your referring to the oppo finder (worlds thinnest smartphone)

impressive benchmarks on the stock rom,

i know some tegra tweaks that can add 2000+ points to my tegra 2 score... (o2x)

so i would think they can be applied to tegra 3 which would bring it even closer to the S3 score... which is probably from a custom rom

1701128dnwwk8uv7b5kddn.jpg

another reason why i would rather tegra 3... like tegra 2 it natively supports most video formats straight out the box.

( the info below is extracted from the Chinese xda forum )

and as you can see it now beats the galaxy S3 (screenshots from Chinese xda)

definitely,

the v985 is also 1999 yuan in china (same as u985) so if there is a carrier branded version in the uk (like china) we could get it for £199.99

been following the Era and Oppo for quite sometime now..earlier I was looking at Mi-2 but then wifey got the S3 and was blown away by the performance specially since we shed the Touchwiz and went CM10!

And just like you guys, I'll probably get the ZTE if it hits the USD 250 mark, or Oppo if it dips at USD 400..I was always a big fan of price/performance ratio..

I could prolly wait till Jan 2013 to see of we get them at our 'target' prices..but then by that time the new Nexus will be in town..tough choice!

Personally i think that ZTE's idiocy is finally catching up on them because even if they do release the era for a price of £200 who's going to buy that over the nexus 4 unless of course they want a micro sd card?

if the nexus 4 had expandable memory i would not even look at the era... (its the only thing stopping me getting the N 4)

we should expect the zte era for £199.99 as the nexus 4 is only £239.99 sim free with 2GB RAM..

that's the thing... the 8GB version will only actually have 5.5GB available

and the 16GB version will have about 12.5GB available

its like this on all devices with those sizes

this is a no go for anyone that plays games and stores movies / music on the phone... games theses days are hitting 1.5GB / 2GB

that 2GB ram and quad core CPU is only going to be put to use if you do the above things...

winch are massively limited due to the stupid lack of microSD slot... (arhhh, why Google?)

total gutted as i would of took the neuxs 4 all day long if it had expandable memory... without it, its useless to me :( :( :(
