Been looking here for some time for a "best buy" upgrade for my G300. Almost bought a couple of times but have until now delayed due to occasional reports of minor faults in some phones received, plus long delivery times & the prospect of bigger / better / cheaper phones  (octacore/ MTK 6592 or 6588 chips/ Xiaomi Hongmi/ Nexus5) coming soon.

 

N'way - fwiw I've always seen this as a best buy / bargain phone topic regardless of source & I'd like to thank all contributors.  Today I decided to pay a (quite :unsure: ) a bit more than originally intended & ordered a Nexus5.  Reasons - cordless charging, latest operating system - always, 4G, easy to sort any issues & I'll have it tomorrow :) 

 

I've got a feeling I'll still be fancying a few china phones coming soon tho lol

 

Btw for those in UK if you go to CPW via TCB there's £3.50 cashback & then CPW are giving a £50 "experience" voucher as well.  So the way I sold it to myself is £295 less £53.50 = Nexus5 for £241.50.  Not bad eh!

I'm selling my W200. Don't know whether to go eBay, gumtree as it isn't very well known. Perfect condition so I'm sure someone would pay a good amount to avoid waiting for shipping etc.

Not sure where we stand on buying Chinese phones with the whole battery thing going on?


Put it up on ebay, I will keep an eye out for it!!!

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Ok will do. Just got my brand new flip case today too! Shame as it's really nice. Replaces the full back cover as it is a galaxy style flip case...like a book.

Should I go buy it now? Or just auction style?!

i think we will see a load of new low end china phones running 4.4 as its configured to run good on only 512MB RAM

and i would Imagen the new high end MTK6592 will also ship with 4.4.1  :)

Received full refund back to paypal today from Antelife.com, 1 day after they said they would process it. So far in my experience their customer service seems pretty good.

RE: Antelife, although ....

Maybe its because I'm dealing with the "Sales" department rather than "Customer Service", but that would hold true for most companies in the world.

 

Which e-mail did you use?

I didn`t have great experience with their CS e-mail.

First thoughts on my Tronsmart TS7   1/8Gb. 

 

I have converted it to a Cubot One by flashing a stock ROM. There were no Tronsmart badges on it anywhere.

 

It is fast with no lag at all. Battery life is extraordinary. Looking at it now (2040hrs) it is at 65% where normally my S3 would be looking for a charger. I normally charge overnight so 100% first thing in the morning.

 

There are a couple of MIUI ROM's available so will try them soon.

Hadn't tried GPS until you asked but it locked for first time in 3 mins. Not done any of the tweeks to improve it.

Camera is excellent.

Really can't be bothered to list my W200 on eBay is anyone actually interested in buying it? It's mint with the box etc. Also bought this case extra.

I've just been reading the last few posts, and I say that it's ok to post about some non-china phones as long as its in the price range of most China phones, and it's something we all want to hear about. The Nexus line of devices is the most popular line in the Android community, so it's not out of hand to post it here.

If you get angry about a phone someone has posted, ignore it. They probably won't post it again. If offtopic phones keep on getting posted by the same person, tell me, and I'll find out where they live for you.

Alright, back to the discussion.
