The last post on giz china states that it has gorilla glass :)

And here I thought gorillas were .. .....well this pictures sums it up.
[img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/77/Gorillas_In_The_Mist_poster.jpg[/img]


Guess who replied.. Yep the fake Jiayu official retailer.

I asked them if gorilla glass would be present on both the 1gb and 2gb versions of the G4 and they replied:

[quote name='[email protected]']
Dear customer,

yes,both of them have Gorilla glass.
Have a nice day.[/quote]

Well of course I'll have a nice day now. I got a fake confirmation from a fake company.

I really dont like the design of the G3 to me its one of the ulgiest smartphones i have seen!

A little offtopic: Since all these phones have a mtk6589 processor i am curious why it is so hard to develop for there is no cyanogenmod for any mediatek based phone? Why? Does anyone have a good article about this or some info? Will it be likely that we will ever see roms like cyanogenmod for these phones?

Not being an expert in mobiles and their processors / chipsets, do the above posts mean when buying from Chine we should avoid phones with Mediatek processors, as there is unlikely to be any dev's working on this type of phone, unlike the G300.??

[/quote]

most of them use the MTK chipset, so the options would be limited.

all it means is that there will be no ROMs built from source, stock based ROMs like the G300 has will be possible though.

Then what about
Tegra3 Quad Core 1.3GHz + 1Gb RAM + (2Ah battery) + 4.7 inch IPS capacitive screen:1280*720, 312 PPI

on 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

(Antutu is ~ 13000)

Is 230 USD too much for this?

looks good, but i don't think it really has a 4.7 inch display,

I doubt that:

Nexus 4: 134 x 68.7 x 9.1 mm
Beidou Q1: 138 x 70 x 10.3 mm

It could be that you are right, but nexus is 4x1 mm shorter.

###################################################

Beidou is a company that set Asia - Pacific bi-directional GPS system recently, going global by 2020.

Here's a little background: Little Chilli is Beidou's fairly new brand that attempts to follow Xiaomi's online retail model,
but without supplying a heavily customized version of Android like MIUI. Most of its earlier models didn't really stand
out as they carried almost the same set of components used by other budget phones; but that was until Beidou and
ZTE announced their ¥999, Tegra 3-based U950, followed by the Little Chilli Q1 which was officially launched four
days ago. The latter went on sale yesterday and the first batch of 20,000 units promptly sold out -- not a surprise
since it comes with Tegra 3 and a 4.7-inch 720p IPS display for just ¥999 as well.....
....
Beidou could be well on its way to become the new Xiaomi (sans the software part), though only time can tell whether
it has the reliability and after-sale service to prove it. If not, there's still plenty of opportunity for others --

For a novice who is venturing into buying phones from China and who was thinking of buying the winner of the poll result, namely the Jiayu G4, which lately appears to be falling from grace, the amount of brands and models now being mentioned is becoming really confusing.......non the less interesting to read about other choices , problem arises in making the right decision for a purchase..... <_<

OK,

after doing a bit more reading, it seems that Beidou`s Little Chilli it is not so good when cheking on a chinese forum:
[url="http://www.lajiaoke.com/thread-6237-1-1.html"]http://www.lajiaoke.com/thread-6237-1-1.html[/url]

[/quote]


could be inaccurate.
just looking at the video you posted, (to me) it clearly looks to have a smaller screen than my nexus 4, which also is 4.7 inch

even the G4's 4.7inch display looks bigger ?

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Q4iOGqPoOys[/media]


it might actually just have a different aspect ratio though... (longer with a thinner width) making it appear smaller. :blink:

or its just me lol :huh:

and yeah, i already know about Beidou, they had a popular budget dual core snapdragon before this.

For a novice who is venturing into buying phones from China and who was thinking of buying the winner of the poll result, namely the Jiayu G4, which lately appears to be falling from grace, the amount of brands and models now being mentioned is becoming really confusing.......non the less interesting to read about other choices , problem arises in making the right decision for a purchase..... <_<

if you don't need a phone now, I'd hold out to see what becomes of the G4. Jiayu seems to be a company that is on the move. I'm going wait a few months to see if they sort themselves out...

£199 pound if you want to buy a Jaiyu G4 from the uk... apparently an official distributor (i doubt)

That is exactly where I am in all this. I'm in no rush so I'll sit back and see how things pan out with the G4 then make a decision.
