Chinese Android Phones 2 - Read First Post!

    So, for anyone who remembers Chinese Android Phones 1, I finally got satisfaction from dealsmachine. They backed down and sent me a new phone with no extra charge and it arrived in 9 days with no customs fee, so fair play to them (eventually!)

    I haven't had much chance to play with the P3000S yet but it seems nice and fast, bright and light.
    Here's a turnip for the books. A second (or first) phone showed up in the letter box this morning.

    Depends how much you're willing to spend. For €150 or less, probably not, for €150 or more then yes, definitely

    Thanks! I'd be willing to spend between 200 and 250. What would you recommend for that price range?

    64gb Xiaomi Mi3 is a fairly high end phone, specs lie between Galaxy S4 and S5, I have one and I love it, couldn't rate it highly enough.

    It's about €230-240 from most sites

    Others will give different recommendations but that's mine

    THL 5000 I got this a few weeks ago and love it.

    As long as you don't need 4g, the Mi3 is a great phone. I miss mine:(.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,397 Digital Solitude


    You don't need 4G, sure haven't I been living on 2G :pac: Yeah that's probably it's one shortfall

    I haven't even tried but guessing from day to night battery level 2.5-3 days.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,321 ✭✭✭ Mezcita


    I haven't even tried but guessing from day to night battery level 2.5-3 days.

    I've got one and get two days out of it easily enough.

    One thing I've yet to sort out is the GPS though. It's fine at pinpointing your location but next to useless if your're in a car.

    Despite that it's a good phone. Dual sim feature is handy.

    Slightly off topic, But does anyone have a link to a decent aliexpress seller for men and womens shoes? running shoes if possible.

    I was reading alot of the posts here going back to the previous one as well. I have noticed quite a few of the phones I posted below aren't really mentioned.
    I am looking to buy a new Chinese Smartphone.
    The one I have now is a THL T100S and was awesome, liked it alot (until my brother broke the screen to it)
    I actually ordered a new screen and replaced it but I can't get signal anymore and the speaker is broken so it's pretty useless now.

    I want a phone the is 5"

    I was looking at the following phones -
    Xiaomi MI4
    onePlus One
    Huawai Honor 6
    Vivo xShot
    Zte star 2
    Lenovo Vibe x2
    Elephone s2
    Elephone p3000s
    THL 2015
    THL 5000

    Was gona get the OnePlus one but it is 5.5"s which is too big.

    I want a decent battery (roughly 3000 mah) or higher
    dual sim
    2 GB RAM or higher
    1.5Ghz CPU or higher
    5" display
    1080HD screen. Might settle for 720 if everything else is perfect.
    a fingerprint scanner would be cool but can live without.

    Any recommendations or help here would be great as I just can't decide.

    Budget = 200€ - 300€
