Dual core, ICS, NFC, 100 pounds price ? How can that fail ? But G300 has better screen (IPS panel).

IF it's near £100 in the first quarter of 2013, it should be a big success imho.

at near £150 it has big competition from still better known brands (Samsung, HTC, Sony etc).

can we stop starting new topics on this please? theres 2 near front page already.

Just picked one up today, the guy i the store said they got them in stock 3 days ago.
The build quality on these phones looks fantastic, it's wider than the g300 and rounder
corners looks more like an iphone, also has a rubber back case.

512MB isn't generous but the G300 runs ICS, at least in its CM9 form, reasonably well in that much memory. If they take a bit of trouble over the software there's no reason for not to be usable.

Too good too be true. With no feedback score and coming from china, I won't even think twice imho. 2weeks ago I paid £160. Look like the price is coming down before the official launch. £135 from this seller on ebay.

In my opinion G330 isn't a successor of G300, G600 is the very successor for me.
A dual core CPU and front-facing camera is not enough for me

Will release to Talk Talk on contract sometime in December. As for PAYG, no one know tbh. Some forum predicted Early 2013.

I just went for one of these after having 2 previous g300's , loved the g300 and the amount of development that went on with this handset.

With talk talk taking offering this handset it won't be long before other carriers pick up on it although the current reviews on the handset show the handset to be mediocre .I don't expect price will be sub 100 when it comes out on payg.

I also got a nexus 4 in the google play fiasco last month development initially was slow but there are quite a few custom roms / kernals appearing after about a month after general release, so expecting ( hoping) the g330 to goes the same way.

The g330 definitely needs the current software optimised for the hardware ........
