THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN BUYING A CHINA PHONE

#1 - The prices shown here are based on the prices in China. It will cost more internationally as the phone increases in price, and there is also P&P. If you buy a phone shown here for $160/£107, you will probably be paying $200/£130.

#2 - Always use PayPal when buying from a china store, unfortunately a lot of problems 'can' occur when shipping, or with the seller themselves. PayPal will ensure your money is safe until you get your product.

#3 - Only buy from trusted sellers, there are a lot of scam websites around so be careful. As I said before, just use PayPal and you should be okay. Here is a list of trusted sellers to save you the grief of buying online:

TRUSTED

  • FastCardTech
  • Merimobiles
  • Uredeal

UNTRUSTED/NOT SURE

  • Android-Sale (untrusted)
  • Pandawill (not sure)
  • AntElife (Untrusted - they don't reply to emails)

I also found the ZTE U950 which is a Quad core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 device. It is priced at $205 of Fastcardtech.

Its actually 1GB but there is only 700 usable. Most of the top end phones are the same so it should have no problems. I just hope it will get rooted and maybe get JB.

The amount of apps you have does not effect your ram.

Yeah that's true :P

The g300 with only 380mb usable is pretty slick now with CM, so 700mb should be great!

Tempting, Galaxy S3 specs for £170, only £40 more than the Umi X1 although the price is set to rise after the pre-order stage it appears.

Edit: Can't find this for anywhere near £150 at the moment. Fastcardtech had a pre-order price of £170 but orders appear to be suspended now until they get any stock. I've seen another site (uredeal) listing for £209 but not a lot else.

I have seen another phone called the Freelander I-20 which has identical looks and spec, so it appears to be a Newman knock-off but I can't be sure. Sites have stock but dubious about buying.

I think the freelander is the exact same phone, but with two alternate names. I don't really get it to be honest :wacko:

From what I've been able to gather online, it really does seem to be the same phone, just branded differently. Perhaps they are made in the same factory? I saw a youtube video that showed in the software phone info that it was even displaying itself as a Newman N2.

I'm seriously considering it, just not sure whether I really need to drop £70 extra for quad core over the dual core Umi X1. The G300 at £100 was a good price for the spec, just not sure about dropping twice that on a replacement, even if it is GS3 level specced.

Edit: OK, from a translated French forum it sounds like the Freelander could be an international export version of the N2. Apparently it ships with a much larger number of languages, whereas the N2 is English and Chinese only.
