First off, is the Alcatel AK47 (what a stupid name) the same device as the Alcatel OT-986? How are people's experiences with the site android-sale.com? If they are legit, £193.60 is a great price for a device this powerful! Too good to be true? I reckon so, thoughts and opinions please :)

Shame it won't cost that much here in UK after adding what-you-ma-call-it TAX & VAT on top... We be looking at least 250£... So the ZTE Grand X from Virginmobile will look more appealing to us in the UK!... Just my opinion!...

2pence done... :P

Thanks for all the info magikstar29! was the service from android-sale.com good? I ask this as the reviews of them i find on the internet say not to trust the site, which is making me very reluctant to purchase this device.

I just received my OT 986, it's amazing

i have updated it to the latest version which still in 4.0.3 but it works like a charm.

I dream off Sense 4.0 or 4.1 on it

Thanks very much for the info! :) I'm seriously thinking of getting it now, just need to scrape the money together, and if i do get one you are likely to get sense 4.0 on it because porting roms is the only thing i can do (to some extent :P)
