China Phone Discussion [Part 2]

Recommended Posts

I had jiayu f1 and g2f for some time and the build quality is good.

If you can wait a little there's another phone to consider.

Lenovo Lemon K3 Note was presented few days ago and it could be a good choice

I won't be getting a new phone for at least a month, so I'll have a look at other phones as well. Thanks.

Apparently its immediately available in 30 countries according to the launch in London. Not sure from which sites though ?

I've decided the next phone I buy will be one with an excellent camera. Unfortunately, this may mean that I need to stop the Chinaphone purchases and go with a mainstream and therefore more expensive device.

I see the Samsung S6 is currently top of the charts for camera quality, but the newly-announced LG G4 looks to be very well specified in that department as well.

I can wait another 6 months or so before my next purchase, I think, so I'm hoping that we'll see better cameras coming from the Chinese companies in this time so I can save myself a few quid!

I suppose the Lenovo Vibe Shot may be a possibility if the camera is good enough, though I admit I was hoping for a more powerful processor. Rather underwhelmed by the Snapdragon 615 which seems inferior to the cheaper Mediatek alternatives.

TCL M2U has the Sony IMX214. 

 

THL2015 has Sony IMX135.

 

Have a M2U on the way to me, so hopefully will find out how good the camera is soon.

Anybody has the idea how to buy a phone

from India - Xiaomi mi4i looks tempting?

It has an improved snapdragon 615 inside :)

I'm waiting for Optical Image Stabilisation to appear on the 'smaller' phones, hence the mention of the Lenovo Vibe Shot.

As it stands, all the Chinaphones with OIS appear to be built into phones of 5.5"+ and I've decided these are just too large for me.

All other Xiaomis are available to purchase from unofficial resellers, so why wouldn't this model ?
