I don't believe the iBex FT3 was in any way superior to some
other sellers FT3's. The trick is finding the right 'other seller'
At the moment they appear to be the only supplier (note NOT manufacturer) who's product is supplied with a 8000mAh battery,which on the face of it seems to be be an advantage, but there hasn't been enough time elapsed to ensure that there are no problems associated with the larger battery (heat dissipation,battery swelling/screen contact and so on.) - but don't expect that advantage to last for long! In fact, I did notice a post referring to a version of the FT3 with an internal
3G modem and a sim slot. Nothing stands still in this market for long!.
I bought my FT3 from Merimobiles. On their site they post the latest firmware update files, there are two files..Firmware2
If that is not a guarantee that the model they sell is a DISCO then I don't know what is! I have had no problems with it and it was delivered in a reasonable time.
Having more than one reliable source can only be good for consumers.
