What do people think of this:
STAR N9770 - 5.08 inch MTK6577 1.2GHz dual core CPU android 4.0.4 ICE CREAM SANDWICH 3G smartphone dual sim 8MP camera WIFI GPS, new google play store and flash player supported, with flip case (black, white)
http://www.amazon.co...p_am_gb?ie=UTF8

I know it costs more than a China phone that's a lots better, but as it's from Amazon there are no risks!

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

Star is very bad, they use cheap materials, and overall the end product is low par. No gorilla glass, no metal, cheap sensors, poor manufacturing methods :(

No problemo, I would only go with companies actually mentioned by Andi of Gizchina as he himself lives in China, so he knows what he's talking about. He never really buys or even makes articles about Star phones, so that indicates that Star probably isn't good nor trustworthy.

All development now has a separate section. You can see the folder thing at the top of the normal forum called Huawei Ascend G300 Development. Just in case you hadn't noticed :P

I'm thinking in getting the vowney v5 as well, seems to best I can get for under $200 currently.
I know most people here are from the EU, but it would be great if anyone that gets this phone in the US could confirm if it supports WCDMA 1900, in the vendor's page it says it does but I'm still unsure if is true.

anyone with the device can confirm this info for you by entering the hidden menu and looking at the available bands,
i done the same thing to check the phones i got a while back.

The vowney actually looks good, really good! Im a fan of large screens so I'm definitely interested :)

I won't be buying any new phones soon though, I'm happy with my G300 for the time being :P

I emailed Mentoo about my order for the Jiayu G4 2GB Advanced and just got this back;

"We are sorry that the releasing date for JIAYU G4 advanced version is not clear at present.
Yes, we have JIAYU G4 basic version as well as 3000mAh battery in stock.If you want to change, we will deliver

JIAYU G4 basic version + 3000mAh battery for you asap."


Is that what people believe? That the basic version is available for delivery now from mail order?


Also... in the Jiayu G2, one SIM is 3G enabled and the other isn't.


Does anyone know if the microsim slot in the G4 is the 3G one or not? Or are they both 3G enabled?


Thanks.
