Hot phones from Asia?

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've a T-mobile pulse and it generally serves me well but I'm a little fed up of its small memory, old software version 2.x which means I can't install some apps and inability to tether anything to it.

I know I could root it and mess about with this and that but I'm reluctant to do so.

I'd rather just upgrade the phone to something not too expensive, I was thinking a Galaxy S2.

I did see a post on a site like redferret.net or gizmag.com which compared about 5 hot Android phones in from Asia.

I can't find the article now but it was basically a load of unknown (here) manufacturers producing some good stuff.

Does anybody know of any sources or have advice about getting a good phone at a better price from such a source?

Thanks, Matt

I ordered a Jiayu G3 from uredeal.com just to give it a whirl. Just need to sell the G300 when it arrives.

Thanks, that's the sort of info I was looking for. :-)

That G3 looks like their most popular phone.

How about support for these things? If it's not main-stream is it difficult to find?

Cheers, Matt

I ordered a Jiayu G3 as well and just waiting for it to arrive. Support is apparently a standard 12month warranty but if they would stick to that I dont know.

I'm pretty excited about the Jiayu G3 myself now that I have seen it.

I'm probably going to order it myself come January.

Information seems a little sketchy with people saying they are changing the spec regarding to screen & use of the gorilla glass.

Seems a bit pot luck what you'll end up with.

Where are you ordering fro reganlives?

I ordered it from www.uredeal.com. Seems like a lot of people have ordered it from there and they are the most reliable site I think as they also send sample phones to magazines for testing and I havent had any issues with comms either. They have replied to every email of mine within 24hrs.

None supporting it yet I think but hopefully someone will soon. Would be good to get custom roms etc.

Is it possible to take a rom dump from an android phone though as a backup?

I know what you mean about the complaints but I havent had any issues. It seems like people have thought that they'll post in the "reviews" area rather than emailing and even then they havent been straight forward. I do think however that they are struggling with demand therefore as you would expect some people are getting angry...

Try Aliexpress (if only to compare prices), was absolutely problem-free for me (G2).
