Anybody used this site before, have not heard of them before now.

Also does anyone know how the MTK6582 does in relation to GPS/SatNav uses ?

mediatek not releasing source holds them back (Info), but the snapdragon 410 sounds very interesting... as its 64 Bit and supports LTE

which is amazing considering they say its aimed at sub $150 devices http://www.qualcomm....tegrated-4g-lte

Okay,
Let me ask you a question :
How frequently you track your order if you buy something from online stores?

I check daily.

More frequently than that is a waste of time as they don't update that often.

As far as I can remember there was a similar story in
the second half 2012, about cheap Qualcomm phones.
Then Mediatek bombed the market with mtk6589 and it
turned out that Qualcomm phones were really cheap and fine but
the GPU (adreno 203) was not good enough.

To2c store is OK. I think that there are few Russian or French
forums who's members regularly buy there...

Mediatek could be the new Qualcomm if they just released popper source, i don't understand why they don't they only hurt the companny.

the adreno 305 seems to be the GPU in the budget qaulcomm devices now (its in the Moto G & Idol S)

but i think that will be slightly upgraded in the snapdragon 410, would be great if they threw in the adreno 320

 

Edit:

 

it uses a new "adreno 306" GPU

Well my I new v3 arrived on Monday 6th, so 8 days in total. Paid £11.11p Dhl shipping, that's £117.87p in total.
Phone well packaged and as described.
I had 2 online chats with To2c because my order was showing as " processing " and I was getting a little bit concerned., they said "everything was OK and not to worry"
despite my order showing as " processing" up until the day before it arrived! I did receive a tracking no but, that was pretty useless as my phone was delivered the same day.

The phone itself is well built and of good quality, all be it a little on the large size ( height), but is light and slim, ( not 6.5 mm tho) more like 8 mm.

Screen nice and bright and touchscreen very responsive. GPS working OK without any tweeks. Camera not as good as I thought it would be. Antutu 16965.

Battery getting a full day, 3 to 4 hours internet, music say 1 hour, and average calls 10 x 2 mins and texts 20 to 30.

Would I use To2c again? Probably PayPal backup is a bonus.

Overall, very happy.

Sounds like a nice phone. The new MTK6582 sounds pretty decent and it will be good if it resolves Mediatek's issues with GPS.

 

To be honest, despite the mention of a Sony sensor and F2.0 aperture, I'm not too surprised that the camera might be a little underwhelming. I think image quality on the budget phones is likely to remain average at best until image stabilisation becomes cheap enough to include. As only a couple of top end phones currently have IS, I'd be surprised if we saw it towards the bottom end of the market any time soon.

 

I dream for the days when we can get a cheap(ish) Android phone with image quality close to the Lumia 1020...

 

Think I could be waiting some time for this! ;)

Quad core over dual core any day. Your essentially getting double performance with quad over dual

 

Edit: sorry - I landed on an older page/post and bumped it by replying to it. However my comments below still stand... :D

 

This is not necessarily true.

Haier W910 with dual Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8260A can match some MediaTek quad cores - e.g. MTG6589. See earlier in the thread for a discussion of this.

I know that AnTuTu is not the final word in performance but I get 16800 on the W910.

I'm using the W910 since Decmeber and find it pretty good.

I'm not encouraging others to buy one necessarily as there are probably better deals out there now or on the way but it may suit some people especially if it's going for less than the €90 that I paid for it last year.

A drawback is that there are not nearly as many ROMs as for the G300 or other devices and most are Acer S500 JB 4.1.2 based.

Also I'm not sure that you can say quad versus dual will double performance all things being equal. Not everything will exploit the additional cores.

In december I've bought from a known international China seller Jiayu G5 Advanced phone. Full phone specs found here: http://www.jiayu-sto...amera-32gb.html.
All I can say about this phone is that I love it. Materials used are awesome, the whole construction of the phone itself is very good and daily use is above expectation. Camera sensor is one of the top at the moment but the low quality of flash makes it almost impossible to use in dark conditions. It has an unofficial MIUI port but all working for daily basis. I don't feel sorry for the 395$ payed including DHL shipment, custom tax and the extra 3000mAh battery. The screenshot posted is from phone used with his stock 2000mAh battery with 2 SIM active.

1st you need to find if there are any CWM and ROMs for it. Then, when you find them, I'm sure you will get the instructions to flash it. But in general, for MTK chipset SP Flash Tool is used to write phone partitions ;)
