update today on my zte v955 phone, been ripped off, china seller sent me a screen protector and no phone completely ripped off, should paypal give me a refund?? ive put a claim in

What option for delivery you selected when you ordered the phone?
Anyone of you know a forum with a similar discussion? Because I want to sell my G300 for an upgrade with a chinese phone but I see that to buy from China is very risky and I want to read more opinions

so, both phones where delivered today...
and i must say i'm quite impressed, first thing i noticed is that the build quality feels very solid and is much thinner than i expected

here are some roughly took pictures, nexus 4 is on the right on all pics (for comparison)

will take some better ones once i pick my daughter up from school

first let down about the china phones (and i see this a lot) is the battery is not the size they say its is....

manufacture says its 2800mAh on the battery

retailers in china say its really 2200mAh (most websites i looked at)

so after checking myself, i was quite shocked to find its only 1500mAh... but it comes with two battery's, so not to bad ?

the app i used to check is definitely legit as it reports the nexus 4 as having 2100mAh (which is correct)

They do look impressive! I can't wit to get a jiayu G4 myself, my brothers G2 has amazing build quality and performance even for a dual core device, so a quad core version will be fantastic!

after reading more about that app i used, i'm not sure it is 1500, as it says unsupported devices will not give an accurate mAh reading

NOT all phones report accurate mA - Check app web-site for more information for your phone


and this phone takes ages to fully charge, just like on the nexus 4...

will try to find out what it really is, how long it lasts should give an indication

well, i played gta vice city for 15mins and it used 6% battery, before passing them on to my parents

build quality is excellent
1GB RAM
1280X720 (720p ISP DISPLAY)
implementation of jelly bean is very good (4.1.2) (everything works)
very fast and responsive, plays gta vice city with no problem
has WIFI Direct
camera is average, flashlight apps work

not came across any apps that did not work, all gameloft games showed in the play store
will update this after a couple of days see what they think of it, and what they dislike / how long the battery lasts

the recovery, is useless its in chines and only has an option to format data... the rest is just various hardware tests

once i root it, i will build clockworkmod for it though :)

will wait a couple of days and ask what the bad things about it are

Tillaz I can't see in the thread what actual phone you ordered for your parents and how much it cost you? The pics look nice though!

What Chinese sellers do , with regarding high end torches is to advertise the maximum lumin power you can expect. Always takes into account using 2 batteries ( that are impossible to fit) to give you the expected values. Looking at what you're saying they do the same things with phones. Probably not illegal in China , something to think about though.

For the price you paid its a very good spec , I didn't notice is it dual sim , did you get stung with import duty , and how is the battery lasting up.

yes, dual sim
no customs charges, i thought it might of with it been delivered by DHL, but it was only held in customs for 2 days before been cleared

the battery is on par with my nexus 4, lasts a day with moderate use, normally 15% to 20% left around 11pm
it also takes ages to charge like the nexus 4... witch makes me think it is 2200mAh


for anyone else, here is the phones i got
http://www.merimobil..._p/meri7358.htm

i personally would not choose this phone though, as a 5inch display is way to big for me... (cant use it with one hand)
but my parents wanted a big screen, 5 inch preferably, so when with this

4.5 to 4.7 inch device is what i would go for
