Not too bad, although I'd probably be waiting for it to drop to at least £200.

The specs on that phone tillaz posted sound spectacular, but it's difficult to gauge the build quality or to know what the after sales support is like. Love the sound of the screen and camera though.

take a look at the oppo finder (worlds thinnest smart phone) from this company
its got better build quality than most zte devices... but that's not been hard to beat in the past lol

not all china based company's produce crappy knock off's lol, this company is similar to the manufactures of the Meizu MX

http://www.xda-devel...m/tag/meizu-mx/

everyone has to start somewhere... just look at zte, they where unheard of not that long ago...
now they are the 5th biggest smartphone manufacture in the world...
they sell more than LG & Sony, surprisingly

i'm still undecided on what i'm getting next... just wish zte had released the era a couple of mouth ago, its starting to sound dated :(

na, that would defeat the whole idea of the kia-platform it uses... (same as the nexus 7 tablet)
its was made to get affordable tegra 3 devices on the market... same as the nexus 7 tablet @ £159.99

it wont be over £250... have a Google about the nvidia tegra 3 kia-platform




yes, it would in reality, but zte don't seem to be bothered... and here is why

the mimosa x (u970) released in china first at 1999 Yuan (£199.99) few month ago....

last week zte announced that the grand era (u985) will be released September in china , and said the price is 1999 Yuan (£199.99)

so as you can see they have already made the mimosa x obsolete data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABQAAAAUCAMAAAC6V+0/AAAABGdBTUEAANbY1E9YMgAAAh9QTFRFV0AI////V0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIV0AIW0IIV0AIW0IIW0QJW0IIV0AIV0AIV0AIQzQQa0oJbEwJbVELbk4Kb0wJb1QMcVILc1cMlF8Ll2oNmXEQnn8Vo2gLpGgLpGoMpW8NpXEOp3YQq4MUrH0Rro0Xr4QUsI4XsZAYuXQNwIkSwI0VyIAOyocQyqcdy4QQzosS1Kod1rIf3ZMS3ZUT3a8c3o4Q3rcf4ZER5JUR5ZYS5ZgS5aIW55wT554U6KkZ6qQV6qUW6qYW6qcX66gW7Lsf7a0X7a0Y7a8Z7bEb7rAY7rEY7rMa7rMb77EY77Ma77QZ77cd77oc8bgb8bkb8bob8b4f8cUh8skh870c874d88If88kk89Im9Mwl9cMd9cQf9cch9sUe9sYf9scf9sgg9skh9swi9swk98kf98og988k99Mm+c8h+dMk+dYm+9Mh+9Mi+9Uj+9Yk+9cl+9gl+9on+9oo+9op+9so/Ncl/Ngl/Non/Nso/N0o/N0p/dok/dol/d0n/d4o/eAp/tsk/twm/t0k/t4l/uAn/uAp/uMp/uMq/wIA/94m/98m/+Am/+An/+En/+Eo/+Io/+Ip/+Mo/+Mp/+Mq/+Qp/+Qq/+Qr/+Uq/+UrnBinMwAAACd0Uk5TAAABCQoLHCYnMDY4OjuCg4WHiImKm56fx8jJys3P1Ofp6enq7/DyAdnyKAAAAUZJREFUGNNjYMQCGBgZgICZi09CRUWCj4sZxIMIsgnr2niWFntYaQmzQQWZOOWMS/qnTe1rq48xkuNkAguyK7n2q6tv2bRYXb0p10meHSTIKmY/QX3Tli2bN69fqF6XYSnKAhTk0W+evWmz+saNG9XXzGotCtPmBgoK2fUuAgpsWLdOfe2C7ooECwGgoIzflPUb1qmvW7taffWqSbUp7pJAQZX8yWuAIkCwcuWKiTXJ3gpAQdW8ngVgkZUrls/vLI/3AgnK+rTOXAESWb586fSWwig3aaCgiG1t19xly9WBYE5HVXqomSBQkFcvs7FzxjyQYHtDdqS/Dg/I8eLWOdUtHepLlqhXZkUHmoqxgrzJoeyYVlAGUpkaHuigyA4LEMPguKTE2IgQXwNYgICCTtPcJSjA2UQDHnTgQOaXUlOT4ocHMhYAAEOaZXH2KZyAAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC

BUT, by the time the era hits the U.K the grand x will be around £149.99...
so there would still be a £100 differance in price betwen zte quad core and dual core devices data:image/png;base64,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
