Which network are you on?

If I was buying a new phone I'd get an Orange San Diego, but it depends which network you are on.

Good specs but being Intel doesn't that mean most apps are not compatible?

Owned a G300 for around 8 months coming from a San Francisco, it seemed a good phone but problems with low ringtones and low mike volume annoyed me, despite updates and installing custom roms the problem was still there, Now I have a San Diago and well its really loads better, just feels nice and is quick as well as nice volume on ringtone, brighter screen, slimmer, lighter. No flashing of roms means I leave it alone and use it rather than keep messing around with it.

was about to stick mine on eBay for 60 quid, does have a scratch on the screen that you can see when screen is of but you can't see it when on and does not effect use. Just don't need it now I have my Jiayu. Let me know if interested and I can take a pic of the screen to show you.
