yeah, i'm still interested.

i was thinking about that MI 2 (MIUI phone with 2GB RAM) but just seen its actually dual core, and way over priced
http://www.merimobil..._p/meri5722.htm

plus i'm going to avoid overseas shipping as its to much hassle, so the china phones are out of the question for me...
plus i want a phone with a good community, and think the era will have that.

i don't think we are going to get anything better for the price in the uk,
since huawei have developed there own quad core chip and those phones are around £400

and as far as i know there is nothing else in this price / spec rang heading to the uk...

but to be fair i would be more than happy with the specs of the zte v985 anyway, so its probably the device i will be getting

my god that looks insane.

"In addition to a 1,920x1,080 resolution, the phone will come with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, as well as a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor.....Other reported specs include a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, and a 2,500mAh battery pack. It will also reportedly feature 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of storage."

This thing looks insane. 441 DPI is better than retina bullshit on the iphones :P

And that quad core s4 is pretty much the best arm chip out there. Beats the tegra 3 by quite a bit.

Just to clarify, the Finder does not have a resolution of 1920x1200 - that would be insane, it's resolution is actually 800x480

Disappointing - I know - As someone who has a 15'' 1920x1200 laptop this sort of resolution I'd sell a child for.

impressive benchmarks on the stock rom,

i know some tegra tweaks that can add 2000+ points to my tegra 2 score... (o2x)
so i would think they can be applied to tegra 3 which would bring it even closer to the S3 score... which is probably from a custom rom

another reason why i would rather tegra 3... like tegra 2 it natively supports most video formats straight out the box.

( the info below is extracted from the Chinese xda forum )

Comes with video player player supports
full-screen playback of 1080p HD mp4, mkv, mov format video video screen virtual keys will automatically hide the
ZTE U985 mp4, mkv, mov format video smooth playback of 1080p Full HD resolution

looks like someone applied those tegra tweaks i was talking about... (adds 2000 points)

and as you can see it now beats the galaxy S3 (screenshots from Chinese xda)
