Ordered mine from uredeal.com on 26th November. Its been despatched so cant wait for it to arrive. I ordered the silver one which is the popular one but unfortunatly they ran out of stock when I ordered and were having difficulties in getting more silver ones in, apparently due to supply issues at the Jiayu factory. Anyway, I got offered to take the grey or black one if wanted so gone for the grey instead and they've even thrown in a case for me for free as I've promised to do a review. As soon as I get it I'll put plenty of pics etc up.

Was it easy to root though? Do you have a step by step?

Small problem the root process seems to have worked but the recovery side hasn't we android man had exclamation mark and pressing home as seen on some video has no effect. Can you flash clockworkmod as a zip file ie (update.zip) does anyone know.

Thanks for the link mate. Is this the step by step you used? Also, as the recovery doesnt work, is it advisable not to try rooting yet? Mine hasnt arrived yet and I'm new to andriod so I guess recovery is for restoring backups?

<p>yeah recovery is for backups,  unless there is an app you want to use that needs root or some dev starts making custom roms I would not bother.</p> I don't know why I bothered, just to see if it worked, boredom is a dangerous thing.

I'm thinking of getting the Umi X1 as the G3 seems a bit thick in the photos I've seen. Can you post a side-on comparison photo with a G300 to give an idea of dimensions?

The jiayu has twice the battery capacity, that's why it is so thick. Battery is probably a lot more important than size, so I would still get the jiayu. Apparently the jiayu feels better in the hand compares to the UMI.

It's a matter of personal preference. I am used to charging my phone every night if neccessary and I can also charge via a USB port at work if I need to top-up, so extra battery capacity at the expense of size doesn't interest me. I have also heard that newer X1s are shipping with a higher capacity battery anyway.

As this is a G300 forum, I think posting comparison pics would be very useful.

I own a Jiayu G2 which is about a 100 pounds. 1GHz dual core CPU, dual SIM, a very nice 4" IPS screen and 2000mAh battery. I've been using this phone for about a month now. I've rooted it but have not flashed any recovery. I'm presently looking into alternatives to CWM. There is no urgent need to have recovery since the stock ROM is almost vanilla and plenty stable for daily use.

The phone battery is long lasting. I hammer it hard with streaming music and surfing and I always seem to have enough to get through the day. Big batteries are nice! But on the other hand I only use one SIM slot. I'm guessing with two radios in operation the phone will last much less time. More battery is better for dual SIM phones.

Also, the camera is pretty awful!

The G3 is similar, but has a larger 4.7" screen with higher resolution and 2750mAh battery but with the same CPU as the G2. In theory at least the G2 should perform better than the G3 on account of the lower resolution (but still nice) screen. My brother has ordered the G3 so I should be able to put up a comparison review soon.

Could someone make a quick comparison video of the jiayu g3 and the huawei ascend g300? Maybe compare size, and show how smooth the jiayu's UI is against the G300.

Have you installed the latest jiayu g3 update? The latest update fixes battery consumption problems.

Search Google for 'G3-20121129-082828' and you should find downloads for the update.

I'm not sure how you install the update, but I assume you put it on the SD card untouched and run the system update program in the app drawer. Ask 'putbinoot' for more info as he owns, and has updated to the latest software.

You should switch off wifi and bluetooth when not in use. This saves a lot of battery.

Also are you using both SIM slots? Two active SIMs will cause a higher battery consumption.

You can try enabling 2G speeds instead of 3G - under "Settings" -> Wireless & Networks: "More" -> "GPRS transfer prefer...".

If all else fails try downloading Juice Defender and using the "Balanced" profile. This minimizes phone data connections to every 15 or 30 mins for sync purposes - saving you some battery life. I find Juice Defender's notification settings to be a nuisance so I disable this and use the widget to force enable data for when I need it for music streaming etc.

Do you charge your phone through AC power or through the USB from a computer? USB charging is much much slower than regular AC power and the G3 has a HUGE 2750mAh battery which can take a while to fill up. Having said that 5hrs on AC power is not too long either. My G2 (2000mAh) charges at the rate of 15% per half hour I think - about 3 and a half hours is comfortable. Big batteries have longer charge times.

I don't have a G3. Can you please comment on your GPS lock on times. I want to do a comparison with my G2.

Can you please tell me this because of hardware problem or software problem.... Regarding GPS is very tough time to get signal...
