The G330D looks like it has a front facing camera as well. That's what it looks like in the picture anyway.

I've just noticed that it a WCDMA phone. Doesn't that mean it won't work in the UK or am I thinking of something else.

wcdma is what we need in the uk, that's what the g300 is

you might be thinking of cdma or td-scdma

Ah, yes. It was cdma I was thinking of. There's to many acronyms floating about, I get very confused :wacko:

have to add Customs charges on I suppose [unless you are lucky and it slips thru']

its free delivery and since its only £130, and is not a heavy item it should avoid customs charges in the uk,

iv had a few similar sized and priced things from china / Hong Kong in the passed without any charges, just delivered to my door like normal

bare in mind things from china can take 3 weeks to arrive...

they also have the zte mimosa x (u970) for the same price (£132) (1GB RAM version)

It would be VAT that would be added on by customs which is based on its value, not its weight

think most people hear already know my opinion on phones at the moment lol

looking at this the Acer is the worse choice since it says single core, plus it uses an older CPU (MediaTek MT6575)

that's why i said since its only £130 (no customs)... any way i have orderd stuff from china up to £140 and not had to pay a penny, just delivered as normal

unless they paid the import VAT when sending it... (waived if the amount calculated due is less than £9)

all info on customs can be found here

Have a look at what's on offer here http://android-sale.com/

There are some that are just obvious rip offs of Samsung/HTC/Apple etc but there are others that look like they could stand up on their own. The one I like the look of is this

http://android-sale.com/jiayu-g3.html

1.2Ghz dual core, 4.5 inch 1280x720 display, 1gb ram and front facing camera for £123. It looks quite stylish as well (in the pictures anyway).

You have to laugh at some of the names though like the "HDC ONE X", the "Gooapple V5" and the "HDC Galaxy S3 Plus".

I was originally waiting for this phone before finally deciding it would probably never be released in the UK and so opted for the G300 instead. It's been knocking around for months now, so if it was coming out over here it would have been announced by Vodafone or something by now. I wouldn't like to import one, due to it remaining a niche phone with a lack of custom ROMs etc.
