Interesting that you said that. I have 3G working in slot 2(big one!)

Micro is slot 1.

I will get micro card somehow and test it in slot 1 and let you know the result.

Bought my son Nibiru H1 to replace Samsung S3. Micro sim from S3 works fine with 3g.

Understood that slot 2 only supports 2g.

What exactly do you mean by "3G" here?

What does it say in System Settings > About phone > Status > Mobile network type?

Both cards can support 3G (not at the same time) I guess. It is up to system software...

I've not seen any reports of MT6952 phones with anything smaller than a 4.5" screen.

You may have to go to the Dark Side and get an Apple! :P

I say smartphones are getting too big. I've just bought 4.5" screen china phone and it's significantly bigger than good old G300. It doesn't feel comfy in my pocket.

 

What do you guys think? Where do you carry your large screen phones (like 5")?

I carry my Coolpad F1 (5" screen) in my trouser pocket. I was initially concerned it would be too bulky but it is thin and light enough for this not to be an issue. Note, however, that I never put anything else in that pocket - no coins, keys, handkerchiefs or anything to ensure I don't scratch the screen! I only use a very slim case on the back of the phone so there is little added bulk to it. The only real issue I'd say I've encountered is that it is difficult to get the phone out of my pocket when I am sitting down. Not too much of a problem, however.

 

I previously had a 4.5" phone (FAEA F1) and this is noticeably easier to handle than the Coolpad. However, I'd have to say that, on balance, I think a 5" screen is better in most respects though a compact 4.7" phone could be a good balance between the two.

 

One thing I would like to see is for the bezel sizes to be reduced further. Sharp is the first company to really go to town on this aspect:

 

http://www.engadget....-is-all-screen/

 

That's a whole centimetre shorter than my Coolpad and a not insignificant 4.5mm narrower. The Sharp is less than a millimetre thicker, but a little lighter though the battery size is about 20% smaller.

 

Hopefully others will follow where Sharp has led.

If you've got plenty of cash, the new Sony Z3 Compact has just been announced. Great specs and a nice, small size considering it has a 4.6" screen. The Z1 Compact had similar dimensions (and we even a little thicker), so Sony have done well to cram in a larger screen as well as all of the waterproofing, high-spec CPU, SD card expansion and a larger battery to boot!

 

The only issue is that it will cost so much more than the Chinaphones which are available. Less of an adventure! ;)

Chinaphones also should follow the way of screen taking almost all front of the phone (like Sharp) :) At least i hope so. Wonder how long it would take...

Hello

I am looking for a good and not to expensive 4G chinese phone.

I just got my Nibiru Mars One H1 and I am selling it :(  Doesnt have 4G

 

So I was exploring a bit and everybody is talking about Moto G 4G
 

I found Huawei Honor 3C on Minideal.net for 199$

But I am not sure about them, they accept Paypal, but their prices are lower then anywhere...so I am not really sure about them.

What would you get, and from where?

 

Lets say that top price would be about 230$

Hi guys, 

 

 

Long time since I've been here, how have you been?

What phone are you using currently?

 

 

I have had the Xiaomi MI2 32GB> Xiaomi M2s 32GB> Oneplus One (64GB international). But I had troubles with my touchscreen on both my M2s and my oneplus so I got the M2s repaired under warranty and sold it.

 

I contacted Oneplus to RMA my device from the first week but they did not respond. So I opened a Paypal dispute within the fist 45 days but they still did not respond, after 30 days so I claimed my money back, Paypal chose my side and payed me back every cent. The thing is I really loved the phone, but the unresponsive screen/ghost touches where making me go insane. I can type better on the crappy Galaxy Ace I have now then on the One plus because it registered my touch on the wrong place or swiped...

 

Topic I made about it on XDA maybe you have seen it: LINK

 

 

So now I am without a good smartphone, and I really love the Oneplus design and price over all the other phones but there customer service sucks! And I really don't want to pay more then €350.

 

Here is my list of phone I would like to have:

 

 

Nexus 6 (Price unknown) - If it has a minimum of 5.5" and 3000mah.

I would love to have a nexus device simply because it will have lots of development

 

 

Oneplus One (OPO) (€299) - If there comes a new revision with the static electricity issue and the touchscreen issue resolved, this would be the perfect phone I would buy it again without thinking twice.

 

 

Oppo Find 7 (€470) - I like all the specs of the phone but its €170 more then the Oneplus. The only downsides I find the speakers and that there is less development then for the oneplus but maybe with cyanogenmod on It I wouldnt even want to change.

 

ZTE Nubia Z7 (max) (€465) - I think this is a beast but it also costs €165 more then the OPO, and the same as the Oppo find 7. Witch is a bit out of my price range.

ZTE Nubia Z7 (normal) (€300) - This is the same price as the OPO and you get the same except it has 2GB of ram instaid of 3GB. But it does have Dual sim but the OPO's design is mutch better imo.

ZTE Nubia Z7 (mini) (€260) - I think this price is great but the battery and display are too small. Also the ZTE nubia Z7 has no section on XDA and I am not sure if it will recieve official Cyanogenmod 11.

 

Xiaomi MI4 - Looks beautiful but no 4G, no 5.5", and no kernel sources = not mutch development and hated on XDA so, I guess thats a no.

 

 

What do you guys think?
