Good point (Y) although the only thing i don't like about the nexus is no SD slot, if it had one i would already have that phone... when are Google going to learn


Yeah, and it has no OTG support. They should of added this, at least we could connect a usb to the phone :)

Imagine connecting an Xbox 360 controller to it and playing Dead trigger = Awesome.

It has OTG now, but requires external power source, a guy on XDA hacked the kernel to enable it,

To be honest though its easer to conect a PS3 controler via bluetooth, this works on any phone with the HID profile.

Not a fan of the ps3 (prefer Xbox) but the controler works great on android, with the app from the market


The coolest thing about the nexus 4 that iv not had a chance to test yet is the mirocast (wireless display)
It lests you display your phones screen on your HD TV wirelessly... Same as HDMI but without the cable lol

Oh that's okay then, and yes I also prefer the Xbox :P

Do you need a special kind of TV to use the wireless display? Or do you need one of those Nexus Q devices?

I've got the H7500+, but having a difficult time getting it rooted. I've mostly dealt with Android 2.2 and 4.0, which were easy one click roots. This is Android 4.1.2... I've tried Bin4ry and MTK Droid Tools to no avail.

Also it's remaining at full 100% CPU 1.2GHz while charging (only when charging, when off charger it deep sleeps no problem)....3 hours of charging charged it from 30%-80%

And the auto-brightness doesn't work... the light sensor is returning values of 10,20,40,120,280 (in the sun),1600 (if pointing light sensor directly into sun), but they don't trigger any change in the brightness... The maximum value of the capella sensor is 10000+, and in sunlight it's only registering 280... I think this is an issue with the ROM not associating the values with the brightness step points...

Anyways, anyone can help with any of those issues, it's much appreciated....

tillaz was just wondering why you are purchasing these kind of phones when you have Nexus 4?

When i was looking they all seem hampered one way or another and as they say you get what you pay for? Most of these dindi phones wont gain a following so no development so why bother?

i bought them for my parents, who wanted an upgrade from the G300
development is not really a problem for me as i can do what i need my self, but what iv seen the H7500 has quite a solid build of 4.1.2 anyway

what makes you think they look hampered?


here is a YouTube video of the one i have ordered

The problem is not that they don't have a following or won't see any development. Both are happening significantly for many of these phones. The problem is that most of the following and development are happening in China, the home market for these phones. For example, the Jiayu G2S had mod roms being released almost immediately after the phone went on the market. Because of the sheer size of the Chinese market, many of these cheap but high spec phones have a large following almost immediately.

But, the critical issue is that you need to be able to interact in Chinese, or, yes, your options will be limited.
