Man this is sexy....

http://www.engadget....cl-idol-x-s950/

2000mAh? LOL. go home phone, you're drunk. 5 inches, super powerful processor, IPS, high pixel density... and 2000mAh? How long's it going to last? Half a day?
EDIT: On a serious note, the 1.7mm bezels look appealing... how thin are the bezels on the V5?

the zte grand S is even more powerful and only has a 1780mah... yet people say it lasts a day ?

the newer more "powerful" CPUs are actually more battery efficient than the older stuff like found in the skate (Armv6),
especially Tegra 4... it offers 6 times the power of Tegra 3 yet it uses 45% less power... (72 core GPU)
http://nvidianews.nv...cessor-8ed.aspx

" Tegra 4 consumes up to 45 percent less power than its predecessor, Tegra 3, in common use cases. And it enables up to 14 hours of HD video playback on phones."

this is what i am waiting for... hopefully its in the nexus 5.

while where talking about batterys i would be interested to see what capacity the battery actually is in the Vowney v5...
as the china phones i got where advertised as 2200mah, yet after checking with an app it said its was only 1500mah ?

use this app and post your screenshot like mine here from my nexus 4

Battery again - 5"/1080pix iOcean has 2000mAh battery.
Here`s a nice review regarding battery endurance and other stuff:
Review

P.S. After reading thru a lot of forums and dedicated websites, I would strongly advice against
5" phones with FHD.
1920x1080 is too much for MTK6589!

P.P.S.
Check the MTK6589 phones list in my sig.
Latest releases are the ones with date in the first or last column.

Same results as you.. V5 should be 2400mah but Battery Monitor says 1500mah...The same results two different phones?..no way that app is compatible.

My phone has arrived! Came with a second battery and a light plastic cover which I want expecting. Just charging it up before having a proper pay in it tonight... :D

I think you have to add at least $12 for shipping to the UK (12-18 days) or $18 for fast shipping (3-5 days).

Even so, it sounds like a good deal... I mean, £165 for the phone, a screen protector, a case, a folding stand, an OTG cable and a power adapter. Price is in line with other sites, has anyone else done deals with Spemall before?

P.S- They can say whatever they want for the shipping, I bet it'll take a month

For £145 plus shipping I'd buy it, but not more than that.. an OTG cable with extended micro usb connection, to fit through your case, only costs £1.49 from ebay and I got it next day.

I read somewhere that the Jiayu G4 buttons capacitive buttons don't have a back light.
Does anyone know if that is true? Seems a bit strange not to have that, although I can only compare it with my G300.
