Hi All,
just a bit of info I have found etotalk.com very reliable and trustworthy. just purchased a Jiayu G3 and it was in my hands in 6 working days! fantastic screen! they can be a little more expensive, but a g3 in stock! good customer service questioned ask answered immediately (allowing for time difference)

How is the G3? can you give us some feedback when you've had time to play? there were some questions about 3g frequencies can you shed any light on that?

thanks haxorg.
still no response and, yes, it's a bit frustrating but at least my phone (which i actually really like) didn't cost a fortune.
ugood have now added a $32.67 shipping fee to the uk whereas when i bought it there was no charge!
i must admit i didn't do enough homework on the subject as i probably would have bought the excellently reviewed jiagu g2 from another dealer.

Hope they give a response soon :/ reading your posts i can just imagine the frustration i'd be in in your situation.

I ordered a ZTE V970 from etotalk. Placed the order on Friday night (2nd Nov), it shipped on Monday and was delivered to Belgium on Wednesday (7th Nov). I've been hit for a further €25 by customs but all in all I pretty happy with the phone.

what about the newman nm860? it's like the jiayu g2 (ust 5mp and 512mb) but costs 140$ shipped with ups (jy-g2 is 145+35)
http://www.aliexpres.../682832566.html

It's strange I couldn't find something about it in any website... maybe it's really new, dunno...

another interesting is the haipai (or tinji/tianji/tianhe?) x720d that's 126$ but shipped with singpost. This last has a 4.7, that's why I'd prefer to buy the newman...

Hi Have not had much time to play yet,keep getting interupted by that "work" thing, but first impressions are good.
Did not know about 3G issues, just put in a t-mobile sim I had knocking about, all seems to be working OK.
Will report especially if I find anything bad

FYI, there are two iterations of the Jiayu G2. One uses a single core CPU with 512MB RAM. The second is the dual core with 1GB RAM - going for about ~$170 USD.

really? then the option "mtk6577 512mb add gift" for 145$ comes indeed with a mtk6575?

otherwise the seller of the newman nm860 told me that it's available... I'm really tempted.. :S

Battery life is great, I am not an heavy user, do not play games and stuff, I am getting 2 days easy.
The rest of the phone working exactly as it should, no problems (volume rocker a bit stiff , but more I use it the better it gets!).
I know I already said this but the screen is great, watched a few films and a bit of catch up tv, the 4.5" screen makes the difference.

They charge $1.99 to mark it as a gift (You pay them then you are complicit in it). It isn't the same as if they just do it without you asking. It is you paying them to commit fraud on your behalf.

you guys should think about getting the Neo NO3 when it is out shortly: http://www.gizchina....leaked-details/

The Neo NO2 is £123 ish on uredeal.com so i'm sure the Neo NO3 will be a similar price with this much improved processor.

that is the neo n003, it has a 5.3" screen. Not sure if that is a different model to NO3. Hoping it isn't as 5.3" is too large for me and it costs £225 which is too close to the nexus 4.

jes, one "0" to much...
I don't think n03 will be much cheaper...

You have lenovo with 4,5'' screen and the same quad-core
