A quick update after using the t328w: nothing wrong to report. The phone functions as it should be and the added google sync works incredibly well, all the contact, calendar apps syncs with google accounts very smoothly. The only potential issues I have noticed are the following:
1) the lack of front facing camera could be potentially problematic for people that uses video calls
2) the screen is a little sensitive to touch
3) there are now custom recovery made for this phone, but most of the dev work are Chinese based.
Overall, I m happy about this phone and has stopped using my Moto XT328 altogether. So much so, I bought 3 units of t328w for my family. I m going to stick to this phone until something better comes along.
