The specs are pretty standard for a Chinese phone. The price seems good, too.

The stock photos all have the screen badly photoshopped on, though. I'd be a bit worried about that.

You may as well forget about Chinese MediaTek devices, then. The best you'll get with those are modded stock ROMs, if that.

Galaxy Nexus, maybe? Not sure what else you could get new for 200€.

Regarding mtk6589. It's true it's almost impossible to get cm, aospa, and all similar custom ROMs to run since "thanks to" dual sim support there are vast changes made across the whole framework that are related to dual sim. Even if we had a source code from mediatek it would still be a huge project to merge it into cm or other custom ROMs.

On the other side, I'm actively developing an xposed module for mtk6589 which has bunch of nice features and tweaks already.

Hi !

I just wanted to say something about mtk6589 devices, the Acer Liquid E2 is one of them and its really famous in france, belgium, spain... Released in may.

Acer have publish the full kernel source code on their website : http://www.acer.co.u...ntent/drivers (document tab)

If it would help to get CM or MIUI (there have been some ports but there is a lot of issues...).

Kernel source is not enough. Android framework source code modified by mediatek is more important to have. Dual sim support is spread all over the system with millions of dependencies everywhere which makes it too complicated.

This looks interesting but what the real quality of this phone when it's said to be the cheapest.

Only 170€ for a dual sim with 4.5" HD screen with quad core @ 1.2Ghz.?!?

Keep in mind, 'quad core' doesn't mean much here. It's only 1.2GHz and the cores are Cortex-A7, not A9.

Still, it is pretty cheap.

Core by core, A9 is better, but 4 cores is better than 2 :)

$140 with coupon, which is 106 EUR, not 170!
