so... what are people planning on getting now ???

i "was" planning on a G4 but now i'm not so sure :huh: and i like the look of that vowne v5 with USB OTG / OGS display (Apparently only £119).

For me at the moment its between the three, G4 been the least favorable

Vowne v5 or UMI X2 (more than likely)

JiaYu G4 :ph34r:

I'm going to bide my time. Still got to remember that the gizchina articles are on pre-production models

Right now I'm looking at the V5, it's only £119 and if it stays that way then the other two just aren't worth the extra £40 to £50. I have been a little suspicious of so many 13 megapixel cameras on a lot of these Chinese phones and after seeing the pics/vids in the post above then I don't actually think the hardware cant cope with the camera, although the pictures were not that bad to be honest. However the V5 has an 8 mega-pixel camera and "Face Detection": 5:50 into this video and you can see the option in the camera settings:

Now the others might have this feature too but I've never seen it confirmed yet.

Also the 5" HD screen looks awesome and it seemed to deal with full webpages smoothly even when playing a video while zooming in and out.

... But hey, tomorrow might bring a different pot of gold under a different rainbow so I'm still interested in what's been turning up in this thread .lol

Ive come to same conclusion , I've just upgraded to zte v970 , got Bruno custom rom on it , dual core dual sim £83 delivered. Will wait a few months until some of these £100 quad core phones have been released and been reviewed , then will upgrade again.

Check the bottom right side of opened phone at 3:00 in video (in full screen).
Wrinkly plastic area, the same thing I saw in some Jiayu phone videos.
Anybody seen that?

Yeah I've seen it.

It looks kind of chiselled most likely because of the mould it was injected into, but that doesn't bother me, on the V5, because the business end at the top, where the hardware is located, it's as finished as the Samsung Galaxy S series unlike the Jiayu G4.

I've been looking at this whole ever increasing MP camera insanity and I think anything over 8mp might not produce the best pictures or experience.

The Galaxy S3 benchmarks around 13 000 and has an 8mp camera, and all of these phones we have been looking at score between 10 000 to 13 000 and have a 13mp camera, where as the Galaxy S4 has a 13mp camera but scores near 30 000, with the quad core Exynos version expected to go into 30k. I think to make it sound like you're getting something close to an S4 they are slapping 13mp's on everything. But honestly the pictures were pretty good and the video seems ok and I can bet if you fiddled around and maybe turned off auto focus then you could improve things.

----------------


Wow the build quality on the ZTE looks as good as an HTC. If all this goes ToneT's up then I'll be looking at something like that. :)

I agree with you about the camera sensors. I've seen some of these Chinese phones saying that have the Sony Exmoor 13mp sensor. Again, this "sounds" good, but even in the high end Sony's, with that sensor don't seem to be better than the Nokia, Apple and Samsung's cameras. I'd rather have less mp and have a back-lit sensor and a lens aperture of 2.2 or less.

is it just me or what, but im not too bothered about the camera, im more than happy with the g300 5mp one , im more interested in the speed of the phone and good ui, and dual sim, and good screen, im sure most of these 13mp camera spec is not true.

Unless I missed something It seems to get roughly the same spec ZTE phone as the Vowney / Verne V5 you have to go for

http://www.fastcardtech.com/ZTE-V987

which is £80 more than the Vowney

no, your right there are loads of people don't see the camera in their phone as a high priority. I'm just not one of them. I think the camera on the G300 is only worth something in bright sunlight. So, I'm looking to improve on it.

I think i might just save my money a little and get a Xiaomi M2A since andi from giz china is so crazy about it and a lot of people are buying this phone so it will have a lot of support. Also it doest have a mediatek CPU so it will get a lot of updates and custom roms...

The only thing that i dont like is that it only has a 8mp camera. But they have F2.2 apertures (But i dont have a clue what that means :P)

I doubt the Vowney will cost so little when it is actually in stock/released ;)

The only thing that i dont like is that it only has a 8mp camera. But they have F2.2 apertures (But i dont have a clue what that means :P)

its how far the shutter opens (aperture = opening). Smaller the number the bigger the opening (don't ask me why) So, the bigger the opening the more light that gets in, and that is a good thing with the tiny sensors that are found in phones.

More mpx is only part of good quality and this is the problem. Manufacturers hype it up cause they know it sells. But 8mp is way more than enough for good photo quality, IF it has a good size sensor and a shutter that will open far enough.

PS: here is an article on the camera quality the original M2 (8mp). Andi perfers if over the Newman N2 (13mp), and I'd agree.
