I have none of these phones. I did look at their specs, liked them all, but in the end went with a phone with 850MHz 3G, which meant I could no longer consider those phones. Still, I had this in my notes (price is an etotalk price - there may be cheaper prices on the web - I put the approximate price in only for relative comparison purposes between phones):
  • Huawei U8836D, dual core, 4.3" display (540x960), gorilla glass, 1GB RAM/4GB ROM, camera(s) 5.0MPixel back/0.3MPixel front, 1930mA battery, ~$219.99
  • ZTE V970, dual core, 4.3" display (540x960), scratch resistant (?) glass, 1 GB RAM/4GB ROM, camera(s) 5.0MPixel back/0.3MPixel front, 1600mA battery, ~$179.99
  • Samsung Galaxy S Duos, single core, 4.0" display, (480x800), gorilla glass (?? < not sure > ), 768MB RAM/4GB ROM, camera(s) 3.0MPixel back/VGA (0.3MPixel ?) front, 1500mA battery ~$239.99
It was clear to me (in my research) that one is paying more $ for the Samsung name for a more expensive phone with quite a bit less capable performance. I guess the question is, by going Samsung does one get better support/quality ?

Out of curiosity, did you consider the Newman N1 ? My guess thou, the Newman N1's quality of build may not be as good as the phone's you listed. But it does mostly have the equivalent specs at a cheaper price.
