fortunately it landed on the corner so dented the case and cracked a very small corner of screen. I reckon i got off lightly.

Note to self :BE MORE CAREFUL!

I think its down to the size of this phone. 5.3 inches is a tad too big.

but hey it was cheap as chips. easy come easy go!

The more I play and fiddle with my W200 the more I hate the G300 and wondered how the hell I put up with it so long. I can't get over how good to look at, and how silky smooth it runs. This thing is what android is all about...And it looks like a £300 phone easily so no socially awkward penguin moments.... Verdict is out though that the battery life is very average indeed.

What sort of battery life do you consider average? Post a screen shot of your usage screen and screen on time?

the freelander i30 is the same as the Newman K1, mines the K1a at 5.3 inches.
i cant knock the phone and the OS is Slick. Battery life is just under 2 days but buy a
jelly or a case as its a tad big to juggle with.

Any idea about where to buy THL W200 now?

 

Why - is there a supply issue? I see that they're on pre-order with DealsPrime

 

http://dealsprime.co...-4-2-phone.html

 

but BangGood and DealExtreme seem to have them in stock:

 

http://www.banggood....ne-p-79615.html

http://dx.com/p/thl-...-rom-8gb-243125

 

I didn't check the rest of the usual suspects but there's a list of reputable online sellers in a post somewhere earlier in this thread.

 

Hope this helps.

It's just that I saw one being sold for $150 somewhere (with a coupon of some sort) few days back but I can't find it now. I thought someone might know. :)

Screenshot is vol down + power button right? Didn't work...so you'll have to take my word for it.

Standby time is pretty good, but with some reasonable use battery is about 6-8 hours. It's half a shame really cuz the phone is so fast and slick it makes you want to use it constantly. I'm still cycling the battery though.

Thanks. I want a new phone(MTK6589) that will have\flash the official MIUI as they update every friday after noon

because I'm fed up of the chinese companies never updating their rom even though they say they will.

 

No V5 on ebay so it looks like getting one from china again and get stung for taxes  

 

EDIT= Just seen the Cube Talk 5H A5300 I think that has MIUI

I have ZTE v987 with regular MIUI updates. 

New Lewa v5 looks promising, too (friday updates as well):
