MTK6589 root tool and it also had the drivers which I think we may need to use SP Flash Tool etc.

Let's use this topic to cram in as much info an links for this phone so we can come to just the one place!

Hi Frankish - I presume you're still waiting? I'm seriously considering this and giving my Huawei G300 to my partner as she just broke her current phone. Dealsprime list it twice for some reason - one for €125 and the other for €115 (excluding 3% discount coupon) for some reason. I can't see any difference between the two listings. Any idea why it's listed twice or is Dealsprime like Aliexpress - i.e. a sort of broker site between buyers and sellers?

Thanks a lot,,,

I'm still waiting for mine yes still my tracking number isn't recognised but it's only been a little over a week since they posted it.

Regarding the listing twice I just assumed it was an old listing and that they are just a little unorganised to be honest as I couldn't see a difference either. I just ordered the cheaper option.

Judging by specs and benchmark scores this will blow your G300 out of the water you will be amazed at the difference. Just make sure you root and install a custom rom to avoid Cai Os as I've not heard good things. I'm sure Tillaz will make an almost AOSP version of the stock rom and if not I will do my best at it.

Tillaz where are you with that mini review ha ha. A busy man I'm sure.

Just be aware that most people who select dhl end up being charged tax for their items while cheaper china post may take longer but seems to mostly avoid that. Where did you order yours from again?

Sorry merimobiles I see...

Yeah, merimobiles. Althought I have asked them to put it as a gift and $50 :( but I wanted it quick... but it`s taken them 4 days now to 'fulfill' and well, it`s not left yet :( plus I got 3-6 days shipping....

Yeah I ordered my phone the Thursday at midnight and DealsPrime didn't send it out until at least the Tuesday! Seems normal for them to take around 5 days to ship judging by other peoples orders.

You mean 1GB? (Split between main CPU and baseband as usual of course)
In any phone?

I presume you're referring to the Haier W910?
As far as I know the 1GB RAM is split c. 670K for the main CPU and the rest for the baseband.
The G300 has 512MB RAM total usually split c. 380K for the main CPU and the rest for the baseband.
I don't see how you can say that c. 75% extra CPU RAM (and 100% extra total RAM) is "not much better"?
Whatever way you cut it 1GB RAM is better than 512MB RAM all things being equal.
Add regardless of the technical spec minutiae the real test is real world use. Hopefully I'll be able to report some comparative info when I get my W910.
I realise that it's not exactly a cutting edge phone (and officially limited to ICS) but for around €90 with some of the other features (e.g. 720 x 1280 resolution, dust/water proofing, 8GB ROM etc.) it suits me as a replacement for my G300 right now.

No I not knocking it, it just seemed looking at it it didn't have much usable ram, I havent read a full review just looked at the atutu thing and it stood out as being on the small side. Now you have explained it it will most likely be a far more pleasant and speedy phone then the g300 and I wish you look with your choice.

i will be doing some stuff for the x9 now that i am actually using the phone, and so far i must admit its been great all round
the phone has 1.73GB for the data partition (apps) which is great, Cai OS is not that bad but i still want AOSP :)

Attached File  Screenshot_2013-09-09-21-58-12.png   38.96KB   24 downloads

i will put a guide up for CWM in a few hours.
i really want to get TWRP on this but the 6mb recovery partition is a problem for all MTK6589.

There is already a CWM available and I thought you just flash it with SP Flash Tool? Mines still not here yet but at least they have definitely posted it!

I definitely want an AOSP like rom to try I'm sure you will have a go at one? :)

It's here it's here. It's on charge now and it's white not green but I didn't hold much hope for that I'll just order another back.
