I'm from the Czech Republic.

The camera lens stands out by approx. 1mm, maybe even less.

I have had a HTC Evo 3d, and the N2 is way better. I can use it much more and it still lasts late into the night. I get 14-24h with 2 to 3h hours screen time, with WiFi on half of the time and data on all the time. I would say I get 75-100% more...

I can not compare it with my wife's G300 as she has completely different usage habits. She only calls, texts and sometimes takes a photo or checks emails.

Another question:Newman N2 it's thinner or thicker, harder or easier than G300?
I want to make idea about how it is in hand
Thanks

The N2 is of similar thickness as the G300, but it has very slightly more protruding camera (half a milimetr? one milimetr?). For me the feel of the body materials on N2 is better. The viewing angles are better also on the N2.

Bloody hell. I think the Nexus 4 has really changed the pricing game we'll be seeing from now on with top end Android devices... Now China are going to drop prices as low as possible with the clones. Excellent! I'm at that point where every potential purchase is going to be eclipsed by new hardware within months if not weeks of purchasing, mobile development is moving so fast. As soon as the clones move towards N4 pricing, though, I'm put off and think "I might aswell buy an N4". I think an Nexus 4 will be my next purchase this year.

I too was shopping around china phones. Started with g3 due to all the hype surrounding it. It was a big mistake, as it is probably any mtk 6577 based phone. The phone was literally choking on hd display and could not do anything right. I am not talking latest games here - I could not even type a message without dropping every fourth char. Don't forget they all pack first gen gpu, sgx531. Newman n2 on the other hand, has Mali400mp, which is 3rd gen gpu. We are talking about exponential performance ratio between the two. I too I have set my sights to nexus 4, which is still ubeatable by any chinese Device, unless you care about Swappable batt and expandable storage. While waiting for my nexus to arrive, I ordered Freelander i20 and sold my G3 on ebay. Make no mistake about it, it was best 50eur upgrade ever. It's pretty damn good phone - until you take nexus 4 In your hand, like I did today;)

looking closely at this thread, these chinese phones are amazing, just got to pick one around £120, any suggestions?

btw, is the ZTE V955 a newer, better phone than the V970?

That's why I wrote "in the Chinese market". And anyway, if it really is double the price, your looking on the wrong website :P

Did anyone ever manage to track a phone using fastcardtechs tracking numbers ?
Frustrating to say the least.
Ordered the umix1,in black,got email to say it had shipped then next day another email to say only white left and would i take that instead.
Agreed to the white one,got email to say was with shipping company,"china dhl" ???
Tried the tracking number without sucess ,contacted support only to be emailed back with "sorry,out of stock".
Is this the norm when buying from china cos i dont think i will want to go through all this again.
