I would wait for the Jiayu G4. That's the phone i'm gonna buy, definitely. I'm probably going to create a custom ROM for it too if it gets root and CWM.


Yea that does look good.do you know when it will be out and the price.

that will be available in April according to Chinese retailers, for $247.99 / £159.99 (1GB RAM 720p Display)
http://www.merimobil..._p/meri7664.htm


if the umi x2 was the same price though i would rather have that as its got 2GB RAM / 1080P Display

but as far as i can see it will cost $299.99 / £193
http://www.etotalk.c...inch_p3539.html

so, is £33 more worth a 1080p display and an extra 1GB RAM ? (not sure i would pay £193 for a china phone)

There is a flagship version of the G4, with 2GB RAM and a 3000mah battery. The price hasn't been unveiled though :unsure:

I suspect $190-$230

but that would mean the flagship version is cheaper than the normal version ???

even fastcardtech have the normal version at $247.99 / $157.99

My umix1 arrived yesterday,13 days from order to delivery with no customs fee.
I rooted and installed cwm then put on a custom rom using the link tillaz supplied,cheers tillaz.
The phone is a replacement for an ancient galaxy s and the missus is well impressed with it,especially the dual sim function which works a treat.
For anyone that thinks the camera will "break off" , it looks and feels pretty solid when its in your hand.
Depends how determined to break it you really are i guess.
Slipping in and out of a pocket or bag aint gonna cause much damage.

had a look at the weight differences, and it seems g300 is heavier 140g by jiayu g3 121 grams. so it seems it actually light which is now tempting me to buy it, anyone confirm this?

just noticed the weight on the jiayui is without the battery so the total weight is more like 180grams.

another alternative from the umi x1 and G3...

in my opinion this beats both, its from the zopo factory like the other "HERO" phones so it should be high qaulity
as zopo get there IPS displays from LG

2800mAh battery

Problem is you can wait forever for the best value phone, if you want great battery life and a solid phone the Jiayu g3 takes a lot of beating. I've had mine for a month now, great phone!
