In short, for the money in my opinion the best buy .
In addition to the standard package of things were the silicone sleeve and another film to screen for free.
The display already  had protective foil . Headphones do not come with the phone.
Fluidity of the OS is excellent, no lag , stuttering , etc.

Absolutely stable and cold phone even under load thanks to 28nm GPU - CPU .
Battery is little to say fantastic , versus my old G300 I have three times longer autonomy again thanks to 28nm .
Camera some would say average , for me is good. Compared with my G300 camera I would say its a little better
Video recording in 720p and it looks alright .
As for the games so far everything I have tried runs smoothly without problems .. Fifa14 , Plants vs Zombies 2 , Need For Speed ​​Most Wanted and Hot Pursuit , Modern Combat 4 : Zero Hour.

Recovery and installing custom ROM :
 

Phone arrived with English 1.03 ROM ( current is 1.05 ) and Chinese recovery .

My recommendation is of course to immediately flash newer one.
Of all the ROMs I've tried , the best for me was Max Flavour Slim v3.4 which is based on the latest official ROM.


Download the Rom and Gapss from here and then transfer them to the root of your SD card :

HOW TO FLASH:

1. Download the necessary USB drivers

MTK Android USB Driver
http://www.mediafire.com/?ixfgnclc3xz3j84


2. Download Mobile Tools with Uncle Play Store
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobileuncle.toolbox&hl=sr


3. Download Recovery.img and put it in the root of your SD card

ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.4.4
http://www.mediafire.com/?91zpnarg3n4hi2a


 

4. In Mobile Uncle Tools select "Update Recovery " and select the file " recovery - CWM - 6044.img " which you previously stored the root of the SD card .


5. Boot into CWM Recovery via Mobile Uncle Tools or using the key combination Volume Down + Power button (hold it until it enters in recovery )


6. BACKUP YOUR CURRENT ROM


7. Inside recovery do the following

Wipe Data / Factory Reset
Wipe Cache Partition
Advanced and Wipe Dalvik Cache

In the main menu , select "Install zip from SD Card " and select " ZTE_V967S_Max_v - 3.4_slim.zip ".

Upon completion  again select "Install zip from SD Card " and select " signed - gapps - flavor - essential.zip "

 

8. Reboot the phone (the first restart will take longer ) and that's it .

I agree that the v967s looks like one of the better buys in the current market of China phones. I have been happy with the device apart from backlight bleed that is especially prominent in the bottom corners of the screen on my unit. Still it is probably not worth the hassle to ship it back to China for a replacement. I have also experienced some issues with automatic screen brightness but a different ROM might fix that. I am still running the stock one with Chinese apps removed.

 

A word of warning regarding protective covers, I ordered one for v987 since I could not find one for v967s on eBay (apart from those advertised as fitting both devices). All the cut-outs fit but the sides are not fully covered since the v987 is marginally slimmer.

Luckily i dont have this backlight bleeding. Automatic screen brightness changes brightness way too much for my taste. I have it on manual. Try Gravitybox, it adds tons of options to play with.

Ive switched back to Max Flavour Slim, Miui doesnt suit me somehow. But for the ones who like that whole thing i can confirm it works great.

You need to have proper usb drivers installed. Try removing zte usb drivers from add/remove programs and then run windows update. Then select zte usb drivers and let windows install them. For me when i connected my phone it prompted me to install the drivers that were on the phone and it worked. Try rebooting your pc after installing the driver and/or turn off/on your phone while in windows.

After testing over 30 chinese roms on g300 I can say that

I have never found one without english UI.

Every single one had english/chinese (+mandarin) language.

Well, the 4th step can't be done if you don't have a root access. 

But as I found out a few minutes later it's very easy to root V967S - just use Framaroot.

Few clicks and your phone is rooted ;)

 

Dovahpig, what exactly you didn't like in MIUI rom?

Good thing you sorted it out :)

I dont like UI of Miui (lol). It has tons of options and works great but i prefer more stock android style.
