Looking to replace my G300, was initaially looking at the Coolpad F1 but seems too big for everyday pocket storage.

 

Anyone recommend a good popular China phone that is a smaller size? (like g300/iphone 4 size)

I switched from 4" g300 to 5" and its really not that big. I lm now looking into 5,5" phone.

F1 is best buy right now and you should reconsider it.

What do you guys think off the ZTE Z7 max?
 
My first device was a ZTE skate a long time ago and I loved it. It even had official CM7. I think the Z7 has great specs for its price the only thing that it is missing is 1GB of ram IMO.
 
I really loved the Oneplus design and building quality, to bad it had the ghost touches and yellow tint. If it would not have had that it would have been the perfect phone for me. Now the thing is I got every cent refunded but I don't find a device that's as good as the oneplus for that money. I would have bought the OPPO Find 7 since it looks allot like the oneplus but it also seems to have ghost touches... :( LINK
 
So I have been looking at the ZTE Z7 max for a while now. Even tough it does not look as premium as the One plus I think its still a great phone almost all the specs are the same to.
 
+ Dualsim
+ Sd card slot
 
- 2GB ram
- No NFC (Who cares)
- No official Cyanogenmod 11 or MIUI.
 
Do you guys think it will get an XDA or modaco section and official CM11 and MIUI?

You mean a dedicated forum?

It'll get one if there's enough interest.

Coolpad/F1 just today got dedicated subforums because one of the original Coolpad F1 threads had 1800 posts and 100K+ views! :D

I don't think it will get much attention regarding source built roms, you can't get the decant zte devices outside of china these days...

the skate & blade where popular because they had good specs at a good price and where made global so everyone had easy access to buy them

never understood why they changed after been so successful globally   :huh:

 

Anyway if source built roms and latest specs are your main preference the next nexus in October is worth a look

Yea you are right I should get the nexus 6!

 

Well the ting with the oneplus is you can unlock it without losing warranty all the specs where right and since it has Cyanogen you are sure that it will always have the latest android version. This time I really want a stable smartphone that is ready for the future and that gets lots of development and long android support.

 

I was thinking about buying the Nexus 5 before I bought the Oneplus but, the "small" screen the battery life and camera made me change my mind. The oneplus is way batter then the nexus 5 for less money, but I am sure that the nexus 6 will be a beast.

 

I hope it will be from LG and not from motorola (Lenovo).

 

Snapdragon 805

3GB Ram

5.5" 1080 or 2k

3200mah 

5mp front 13mp back.

 

That would be a dream :D

Yeah the nexus 5 is a year old and outdated now, best wait and see what the new one has, i hear it could use the 810 since Android L supports 64bit. 

Probably be 31st of October

64bit? Make it 4GB ram then haha :P

 

I'm going to Australia the 26th of november so I hope I could get it before then, Belgium has always been late with the nexus devices and the nexus 5 is the only phone you can buy trough the playstore here. And I really need a good reliable smartphone to take there because I wont be taking anything else like a laptop. Only a backpack so hopefully I could have it by mid november.

Do you think the new nexus will have 2K screen and 3GB of ram? I hope so but but I think its going to have 2GB and 1080p screen.

I do m8 for a few reasons, all the nexus devices from LG have been modled of LGs G series so I would expect if it's made by LG again it will have same hardware as the LG G3 or very similar just like the others.

And secondly if the nexus X/6 is made by motorala like leaks suggest and is the shamu those are the specs

Yea I've seen the specs If it would be based on the LG G3 :D

 

I asked Oneplus to buy a device from them again, I really can't find another phone that I like and its still the cheapest, all my friends that have had the device after 15/07 don't have any problem with it. It has official CM11 it is going to get MIUI 6 and android L guarantied... The only thing I hope is that the multitouch problem also gets solved still that's no biggy for me as long as it does not have unresponsive screen, ghost touches and ghost swipes.

 

If they don't respond its going to be either the Nexus 6 or the MI4 (LTE version)

 

Edit: Or the IUNI U3

Chill out guys, less of the insults please. With technology today the age of the enthusiast is irrelevant and egis can be turned down a bit.

Have fun and lets keep it civil.

ADVERT LINK REMOVED already lists the Nexus 6: 

http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_nexus_6-6604.php

 

I would really prefer LG instead of Motorola (Lenovo). IMO the Moto G and X design looks terrible, I would even consider buying a phone with less specs just to have a beautyfull looking phone. Maybe Motorola will surprise me :D

 

The thing is I am using a Samsung Galaxy Ace right now, so the urge to buy a OPO again now is really big but I should just wait a month.

Any opinions on the THL 5000 http://www.aliexpress.com/item/In-Stock-Original-THL-5000-5-FHD-IPS-MTK6592T-Octa-Core-Android-4-4-Phone-NFC/1983352428.html ? That 5000 mAh caught my eye. It's not the 160 - 180 $ like the Coolpad F1, but for the 100 $ difference you get a bigger battery (x2 actually), faster CPU and more ROM. Looking to replace my G300 at the end of the year and this looks really good.

Accer Liquid Jade looks nice for a uk dual sim, for 180 specs could of been a bit better in my opinion

I have the oneplus again now for 2 weeks and I am very happy with it I have no problems with it this time (build date: 20/09/14) :D Since I really don't like the moto g design at all and 5.9 is just to big.

The oneplus design is beautiful and cm11 as stock is really nice! Also android L upgrade etc.

If priced the same as their last two tablets (£199) I would go with this all day http://www.knowyourmobile.com/tablets/google-nexus-9/21381/nexus-9-release-date-price-specs the tegra K1 is on another level for gaming to anything we've seen mobile so far
