A few days ago I bought a Lenovo P700i for 1400RMB from China Mobile. This is a 4inch screen Android ICS 4.0 phone with dual-core CPU. Feels very solid and well constructed, better than the Galaxy S I had. Very smooth and responsive, not laggy. Battery life is really good for an Android phone, goes for two whole days without charging
. Has a 2500mA/h battery as standard. The Galaxy S with its 1500mA/h battery, could only manage one day without charging it. It's only got 4GB internal storage, but that's not a problem as I've put a 32GB micro-SD card in it. Also it doesn't have Google Play, but then that's not too clever in China anyway, free apps only
. It syncs with Google just fine though, for contacts, email and calendar. No redundant analogue TV or anything silly like that. However it does have an FM transmitter as well as normal FM radio, so I can hear my phone calls and music on any convenient radio LOL.
Lenovo is a reputable manufacturer of quality phones, unlike many of these Chinese dual-SIM devices. However they don't normally sell phones outside of China, and the P700i is officially only sold in China.
It was the screen itself that broke on the Galaxy, not the front glass, had great big crack in it. Don't quite know how it happened, it was in my pocket, pulled it out and noticed that the screen was busted. I didn't drop it or anything. I was quoted 1600RMB to repair the Samsung, but that was more than what the Lenovo cost, so definitely not worth it.
Here's a screen-shot of a couple of the home-screen widgets.
..it's getting cold at nights now.
