Well my trusty g300 finally hit the wall,er... bit the dust so im looking for a replacement phone .

Gotta be dual sim and 4.5 screen or larger.

Was thinking of the moto g ,single sim i know but could live with it but would prefer dual sim though.

I'm having an issue with the miui installed on my red rice, I move the apps into folders and when I turn /reboot phone a lot of the apps are out of the folders and back on the home screens. Any ideas?


Not used MIUI for a while, but I seem to recall that there used to be this sort of problem if the apps were stored on the SD card. This was something which occurred with some enthusiast builds of MIUI on a Motorola Atrix. I do think that some other builds didn't have the same issue, however, so it might not be something to do with that.

Looks pretty decent, but a pity that the Kraits are clocked relatively slowly. I'm sure they'll still provide decent enough performance, however. It will be interesting to see what people have to say about this one in comparison to Chinaphones such as the Hongmi, though that is more expensive of course.

 

I'd perhaps give it a try but for the fact that I've spent cash on an Ovivo SIM and therefore now want to have a dual-SIM phone to use! I did (briefly) find the second SIM useful on holiday in the summer so I hardly use it, but there is a principle at stake!

I've just checked the apps that have moved out of the folders and they're all the apps on the SD card, so that looks like the problem!

Well I'm quite impressed with the xiaomi red rice. Ive got nothing but good reports for Merimobiles, good communication and they advised me to upgrade to Singapore post from free delivery due to the delays and it only cost me $8. They also rooted my phone and added an anti-slip mat free of charge. It only took a few weeks to arrive and from arriving in the UK took 6days to get to me, it was marked as a gift $30 and didn't have to pay any custom charges. The build quality looks and feels very good, the back cover is easily removed so easy access to the battery. The screen seems very responsive, and the phone for me is very fast, including downloading apps. At a push I will be able to get 2days out of a full battery charge and that includes 2days of using the music player (approx 40 mins both times) and an average days using internet etc.

Don't forget the RR gets OTA updates every friday and it should come already rooted.

I would leave well alone for a bit if I was you..well till you're sick of MIUI.

The Huawei Honor 3C looks to be a pretty well-specced budget device:

http://www.gizchina....ed-pricing-131/

Wonder what the reviews of this phone will be like?

Regardless, you really can get a heck of a lot of phone for not much money these days. I'm tempted to buy one of these (or something similar) in the new year but will wait for reviews first, I think.

The red rice at the minute doesn't have weekly updates, I think they're monthly. I don't think I'll be messing around too much with it as so far I'm quite happy with it.

I searched this phone on aliexpress but it is not available yet. The specs are very good for this money. But I am sure that it will not be available for international buyers for this price. Huawei products are supposed to be of good quality.
