I had a iNew 2000 and it never had a update from 4.2.1. I'm so glad I now got a Cube Talk 5H now loads of roms for it.

All cube has got to do is get a recovery that will do backups  :)

I received a Aoson M33 tablet from Merimobiles yesterday.

9.7 inch retina screen RK3188 quad core 2GB RAM 16GB ROM

The tablet is very good so far.

Merimobiles also asked me if I wanted to pay $8 for quicker delivery but I declined. It was dispatched on 2/12/13 and was dispatched overseas on 6/12/13.

15 days with free delivery in December is pretty good and glad I didn't pay extra.

Wow, anyone seen EE's new budget 4G device...

 

i just got this text message from EE so decided to check out the device they are talking about, and was surprised at the price & specs.

Alcatel One Touch Idol S: http://shop.ee.co.uk...s/#choose-plans £129.99.

 

i have seen people saying its a Dual core snapdragon 400? (also think there is an MTK version in china)

 

Specs comparison to Moto G: http://www.phonearen...hones/8136,8208

 

 

just sold my nexus 5, and ordered this (until i can get a moto G for my self) and i must admit EE are the most complicated place i have ever ordered from...

they made me ring up to complete my order, and now the email says i need photo ID to get it from the courier  :huh:

 

and only i can sign for it.... so you need to take time off work.

Orange have been by far the worst network I've had to deal with in the past as regards customer service so I'm not surprised to hear that their new incarnation "EE" have such a mind-numbingly stupid delivery policy in place. It's almost as if they've gone out of their way to make things even more difficult for customers.

 

Incredible, in the truest sense of the word.  :blink:

Need to get a new phone, bored with the Vowney V5, but the choice is so big now in the Chinese phone market the spec seems good and probably a great phone, but so was the Vowney V5  until the problems arose with the GPS and Compass it was still a good phone though, even with those concerns.  Sure this inew v3 will appear on peoples choice list........might be worth the wait until a few people have purchased though to see if there are any bugs with it..

Finally using my Haier W910 for the past few days.

I'm using this ROM which looks pretty good so far - with just a few quirks as I mention in this thread:

If anybody has any questions let me know.

Dalyer, regardless of how fast your W910 may be ( ;)), can you give an indication how you're finding using it? How is battery life of the device and is the Jellybean ROM you have installed pretty stable?

My FAEA F1 has a few issues which leave me a little unhappy, and I'm thinking about trying to get a W910 once again. After Dealsprime cancelled my order, I notice that Focalprice now have it available cheap so I may take a punt.

I'm very late responding to this but I only started using my Haier W910 as a daily phone on Xmas Eve.
I'm running this ROM:

http://forum.xda-dev...28#post48585228

Which I found out about here:

http://forum.xda-dev...2394696&page=21

As I say in both threads the ROM is working pretty well for me so far.
Seems pretty stable.
A few quirks as mentioned in the first thread but nothing major so far.
I'm getting about 2 days battery life while still playing with it quite a bit while still installing, tweaking and playing with it. And I haven't really done much power usage/wakelock analysis and optimization yet.

As I said above if anybody has any questions let me know and I'll try to help.
I still miss my G300 a bit but I'm sure I'll get over it. :D

Thanks for the comments.

I was sorely tempted to buy a Moto G the other week but managed to hold back as the 16GB memory limit is a little too small for me (despite the small OTG adapters linked in this thread).

I'm currently thinking about perhaps going for a new phone with the MT6582 chip or maybe waiting to see how MT6588 devices perform. A lot happening at the moment and I'm still saving for the wedding so I have to admit that thoughts about a new phone have been put on the back burner for a few months at least. I'll muddle on through with the F1 until then.

Just setup a moto g 8gb version which I got for her from tesco £99 , good for the money unlocked using code bought from eBay cost £2. I like the screen very responsive nice nd bright and good crisp screen would say its as good as my vowney v5 , seems fast phone , now what I don't like feels very cheap and no front buttons uses screen buttons so you loose some of the 4.5 inch screen to accomadate the buttons I really don't like that idea at all and find it too easy to catch the home button, I think there's better £100 chinese phones out there to be honest, its a think phone too, but big plus all the software works well and GPS works spot on unlike my vowney.

no front buttons uses screen buttons so you loose some of the 4.5 inch screen to accomadate the buttons I really don't like that idea at all and find it too easy to catch the home button

For what it's worth the Haier W910 also has no capacitive buttons and only on screen buttons so I use this because I don't like the loss of screen real estate :) It adds a few taps/swipes to some operations but so far I'm happy with it.

I also tried this but couldn't get used to it:

However I'd love a decent gesture based utility to replace the on screen buttons but haven't found one yet.

Hope this helps.

No problem. I know that the Haier W910 is a bit long in the tooth now so I am not surprised if people are not going for it.
However for €90 it'll do me fine for a while anyway and it's working well so far. :)

I can't wait to see the battle between mediatek and Qualcomm's cheap SoC Snapdragon 410. That is going to be really interesting fight in the 2014. second half

well funny you should say that because today the seller as come back asking for $10 more to cover postage , pitty cos I thought at that £99 I thought it was really cheap , I have also found it on ebay for £120 but that includes dhl postage so might go for that option now
