But if anybody is looking to purchase in China from a genuine source then they are not listed on this page, unless I missed it?

Yeah I've just been read the comments on that article. Someone mentioned the same thing. Just went to the India site, and there is a notice on there that it has been set up in cooperation with androidguruz. That's where they guy in the video is from. If they ship internationally, that may be an option. (funny thing he said no gorilla glass in the video but the India site clearly states gorilla glass on the G4) crazy...

I tell you what Jiayu is on the move. We have a UK distributor now! Probably cost more than buying from China or India, but you'd have local support and warranty.

PS: the UK site only has a parking space on the web for now.

I believe its a hoax as all the distributors are at jiayumobileshop, which is fake.

yeah, I know about those fake sites. I actually found the link in the gizchina article http://www.gizchina....rs-listed-here/ that included a statement from Jiayu about these fake distributors. At the end of the article there is a link to Jiayu's approved distributors and as of last night the UK didn't have one. This morning (GMT) it does. So, unless that gizchina article has been hijacked, it all seems legit.

In fact if you if you go to the Jiayu offiical distributors page there are (sorry you saw that page :P) anyway the links to stores in Italy, Spain, and Germany all work. Also the India store has a blog that includes news of the same event that is in that video that Tillaz posted. And the same guy from androidguruz has his picture is in there as well. Unless this is some elaborate scam, it seems to be the real thing. Either that, or this Andi from gizchina actually put a fake link into an article about fake distrubitors. That wouldn't be very bright :D

more news on the G4, looks nice
http://www.gizchina....dy-looks-great/


further to the discussion about which sites are legit. This is dialogue from the comments section on the gizchina article mentioned above. Andi is the author and I think the main man behind gizchina.




What is real official Jiayu shop?
http://www.jiayuofficial.com/
or
http://www.jiayumobileshop.com/
or something else?
Thanks



Andi APRIL 24, 2013 AT 5:35 AM .

I had a long chat with JiaYu and some of the official distributors today. Only the sites listed in the article are official. The others aren’t despite what the name says.

Who cares what the official site is, when you buy it in a online store and pay less. With paypall buyers protection they cant scam you.

As for the gorilla glass i asume it will have gorilla glass since every site states that i think the androidguru is wrong

yeah that's the address that's on the jiayu site. Just did a street view on the address. It's somebody's house. Not sure if that's good or not? Companies House webcheck shows this as an current name for a company.

paypal is good protection no doubt, but it isn't fail safe. But the main reason would be warranty and service. If you ever needed it the wait should be much shorter, and you shouldn't have to pay for the return shipping.

Not sure how true that is, if you get genuine jiayu ok, but if you ended up with a fake from China then would paypal protect you??

http://www.gizchina....dy-looks-great/


And here I thought gorillas were .. .....well this pictures sums it up.
Posted Image


Guess who replied.. Yep the fake Jiayu official retailer.

I asked them if gorilla glass would be present on both the 1gb and 2gb versions of the G4 and they replied:

Dear customer,

yes,both of them have Gorilla glass.
Have a nice day.


Well of course I'll have a nice day now. I got a fake confirmation from a fake company.

Thinking of trying a Chinese purchase of a Jiayu G4 from China, so been through the posts to try and find all Chinese sites mentioned (listed below)and trying to get a feel for the most popular, a couple do not work anymore but don’t think I missed any apart from fakes identified. The most mentioned site appears to be merimobiles and the cheapest for the basic jiayu G4 appears to be mentoo.com @£135.39

Have you seen this? http://www.modaco.co...jiayu-g-series/ There is some discussion in there about some of these companies. If my memory serves me right the first 2 on your list are hit and miss. Etotalk seems to have favourable feedback, and you've got PayPal with them for sure. Just wondering is that £135 with delivery?
