any thoughts?
Yes, it has the same problem as the A60 = only 256MB of RAM...

This modile have been offering Chinise shops such as etotalk.com (etowalk.com) and fastcardtech.com. Here's dialog from etotalk.com:
"Lenovo P70 Vs Lenovo A60 October 5, 2011
By: by sfs (from: ?)
The only difference I check from your specs between Lenovo A60 and Lenovo P70 are the back cam pixels and battery.
Lenovo A60 price is $184 and Lenovo P70 price is $249. Why is the price difference so big ?
Are there more better features in P70 compared to A60? If yes, can you explain the better features in P70 not found in A60?
Reply:
P70 is 5 mp with auto focus, A60 is 3.2 mp.
The battery of P70 is 2000 mAh, but A60 is 1500 mAh.
Others features are completely the same.
Thanks"

I ordered a Lenovo A60 but I sent it back after a few days because at many places I had no GSM coverage whre it was OK with my other phones (Samsung and Nokia) The A60 has a weak GSM transceiver which will only work in areas with many GSM transmitters. Inside buildings or in the train most of the time there is "no service".Nice Android toy but worthless as phone.

I have the same phone, but can't agree with you. Mine doesn't have any GSM or other wireless communication related issues. Sound quality form the earpiece and speaker is great... Only thing that may be better is battery life (I charge it almost every night), but that seems to be an issue with many android smartphones. Anyway, excellent android dual-sim phone and I'm not planning to change it soon.

I agree completely with you.
I must say that is the best phone on coverage and audio quality that i have ever had. I wish i can add it 256MB of RAM (like a desktop), and it will be perfect!

This guy called Bruno Martins has a forum for the G11i pro where he also publishes new ROMS. This one runs on MT6573. He shows this is quite faster then the MSM7227 (600MHz) as in HD958/T8888. Spefically, the 3D graphics is much better in the G11i. The XT531 with the enhanced turbo and the G1345 come up clearly better.
However, there is one remark made in the review by Bruno: it seems that when using data connection on SIM1 reverts calls to SIM2 to voicemail. Can someone confirm, and can I see that as a major advantage for the qualcom chipsets?
Any thought is welcome
"...when using data connection on SIM1 reverts calls to SIM2 to voicemail..." This IS NOT TRUE.

I assure you that when someone calls you to the Sim2, it interrupts the data connection and the phone rings. This is a Qualcom specification.

P70 is exactly the same as A60 except it has a better camera and look slightly different.

There is slightly more developers (though not nearly enough) supporting A60 compared to P70.

Hi,

There is a company in Holland that sells the GSmart G1310 DUAL SIM phone. It costs 185 euro (250 US Dollars) excl. transportation in Europe.
With 24 months of factory guarantee. Website: SCOPEQ | Scope on Quality | web - graphics - marketing - consulting... - or email: info@scopeq.com.
By my opinion the G1310 is the best and most stable android 2.2 dual sim phone.

I have purchased my GSmart their, and its great!

How long ago did you buy it?

I know that when it had come to Ukraine it has had a lot of bugs both with software and hardware as well as with assembly. Also, dust appeared under its glass after using within some days.

Some bugs were fixed with new ROM-updates later, but not all.

probably you have device from the latest shipment.

Could you tell me you have some troubles with him?
Which is the number of its ROM?

I believe screen size 3.2" is too small for the outside dimensions: my HD mini now is much smaller with the same screen size.

Ugh. Not for that price. My limit is $300 although I might have stretched my budget to $350 max. At $400? No thanks.

It is a little expensive compared to the alternatives (such as Lenovo A60), and their shipping cost $50 too. u can get a Nexus S for that price. However, it is a motorola build dual sim afterall.

I m checking with etotalk if it is in stock and available for delivery immediately before making up my mind.

Sure. With practically LG Optimus One-level specs (granted, the dual cameras are nice). I think I'll just carry a couple of Optimus One phones (costing $100~150 a piece) with me rather than pay $400 for the XT532.

I think the whole point of this forum thread is so that we dont have to carry two phones but your point is certainly valid (and i agree with you completely as well).

I think etotalk is over charging on this phone given that they are the first retailer to sell it online. I reckon the price will drop significantly very soon.

Also, has anyone have any news of the Moto317? (the one with physical keyboard).

I'm willing to pay a (small) premium for dual SIM. Heck, I bought my Nexus S for $300 and am willing to spend around the same price for basically an Optimus One level smartphone that supports 2 SIM cards. However, I draw the line at having to spend twice as much or more for Optimus One-level hardware just to get dual SIM functionality. I've seen dumbphones costing $25 that support dual SIM.

I think Lenovo A60 might just do the job for you.

Waiting to see if I might be able to nab an LG Optimus Net P698 from ebay or something. I've already experienced a couple of forced close with the LG Thrive (512MB) due to running out of memory.

Hi Genna,

I purchased it two months ago, the software version is 0.46.2, I did not find any dust behind the screen.
It works great, no trouble at all.

Yesterday, I asked the following questions at etotalk.com, concerning the XT532:

- when will you start to deliver this phone?
- what menu languages will be available?
- does this phone come with a good working android market for free and payable apps?

Their answer is:
- This phone is in pre-sale. Thanks

Still have to wait I guess...

Thanks for the reply.

that is good, you have no problems with him!

to concerned, Guys from ukraine and russia have already received root rights for GSmart 1345.

By the way, have anybody paid attention on XT532's screen resolution there. I guess, qvga 320X240 is not enough for 3,5" display, or there is the mistake in specs? I think, it must be second, hvga is more appropriate

By the way, have anybody paid attention on XT532's screen resolution there. I guess, qvga 320X240 is not enough for 3,5" display, or there is the mistake in specs? I think, it must be second, hvga is more appropriate
Hi, Genna,

Do you know if it is possible to make a ROM copy of the ROM that is present on a GSmart phone? How do I get those root rights for the G1345?

Thanks!

I really can't see what is the advantage of the XT532's versus the Gigabyte Gsmart G1345??

Pricey. I think I'll get this phone but I'm gonna wait when price has dropped to $300~350 (inclusive of shipping).

The G1345 is know to be buggy. The XT532 is still unkown...

Hi Times8,

Let me make clear some points.

Do you need to make a backup of your contacts, apps, so on. or you need to make ROM cope entirely? if the last, I know that is the problem!

also, do you need to get root rights for 1345 or even so for 1310? Because you have said before that your phone was 1310.

Hi Genna,

I need or want to make a ROM copy of what's present on the phone, not contacts etc.
Yes my phone is a G1310, but I think if it works for the 1345 it also works for the 1310, or am I wrong?

Thanks!

Hi Times8,

I have learned our forums, so GSmart 1310 may be rooted with SuperOneClick v1.6.5, 1.7 and z4root 1.3.1 as well. others search internet to find these apps.

Instruction(have been taken from there):
1. You have to install all drivers of the device on your PC and check correct installation in your devices manager(devmgmt.msc), if some drivers are not installed then they must be reinstalled. drivers are located on your device or you can download them fromhere
2. Next, you have to download SuperOneClick v1.7 and un-zip archive.
3. Then, turn on USB Debugging mode in your device settings, leave the setting and connect to the PC in charging mode.
4. Finally, you have to push the button "root" in run SuperOneClick.exe.
if all right, your device will be rooted and you will see a message about it, apps may propose to verify rooting and it's all.
this work was done with ROM 0.36.

remember! I cannot give you any guarantee and all work you make will be under your responsibility.

Good luck!

My HDC A9100 finally arrived, and after a few days living with it this is what I think:

I use the phone with 2x GSM sim cards, 1 from my work, one private. The work one is in Sim 1 and is set to be the default for 3g data. Both sims are active at the same time, the only restriction is that if you are on a call on one sim, the other diverts directly to voicemail, so you can't switch between calls. The dual sim bit works just as I was expecting & I'm quite happy with it. I'm not so happy with the 3G connection though, I get a much better signal on my iphone & HTC Desire Z, but I guess that's not unexpected.

The phone itself is nicely made & feels exactly the same as the Samsung original - the only visible difference is the logo's. The screen is good, multi-touch works well and its a nice size. The main camera is surprisingly good, nice clear pictures in all light levels, and the flash is okay for a single LED. The front camera is a let down, not that you get to use it as it doesn't support Skype video calling (yet. Apparently.)

Once I'd rooted it & cleared off the crap it runs pretty smoothly - comparable to my Desire Z if you don't push it too hard. If you're listening to music, browsing the web and taking a call expect it to lag pretty badly though. (Rooted easily with SuperOneClick).

The RAM is okay, with 443Mb available, but internal storage is crap, with just 220Mb available - and most of that is taken up with the preinstalled apps, most of which you need. I'm installing all my apps to SD, but I still seem to run out of storage occasionally.

The CPU only shows as a single core in Z-Device Test, which would be about right with its performance, although its claimed to be a dual core. I don't believe it.

The GPS is crap though. Mine seems to get a fix about once every 30 mins, and then only for a few seconds - so its useless for navigation. I've been led to believe there is a rom update available somewhere which fixes this known issue, but I've not found it yet.

I'm not sure yet about Battery life, as I've been off work with man-flu this week so although I've been using it a lot its been plugged in a fair bit. I think it should be okay with an overnight charge each night as long as its not used too much in the day, but it wouldn't really last long enough for too much serious use. It lasts longer than an iPhone with the O/S5 update though.

On the whole, as long as I can get the ROM which fixes the GPS I'm very happy with the phone. It beats carrying 2 phones as I had to before, and apart from a little performance, I've not really had to sacrifice any of the functions and features I had available to me when I carried the iPhone 4 & Desire Z everywhere. Its certainly slimmer than either in the pocket.

I'll keep using this now for another 6 months, and hopefully by then MTK will have brought out a proper 1Ghz Dual Core CPU and there will be a dual sim phone that really does perform as well as the main brand single sim alternatives.

I hope that's helpful.

Default W7272

My W7272 just arrived. First reaction is that is well built (a bit bulky though) and running smoothly. Will report more when I will have used it for a while.

Edit: Wifi running very smoothly (better than my MSM7227 phone I used before), GPS a little less sensitive, good enough for the car. graphics indeed very smooth.
Battery usage: it just survives one day with heavy playing on each functionality of the phone

Made up my mind and just ordered a Lenovo A60... Hope it will arrive soon.
Regarding the fact that we probably have to wait till 2012 to get Motorola or LG phones, I now choose the Lenovo.

Will let you all know how it works!

just received my Alcatel 913D.

Initial thought: very pleasantly surprised!

as I mentioned before, the phone is manufactured by TCL communication in China, which is a trustworthy manufacturer. total cost about $180 and shipping is free. no custom duty/tax involved in the process either, bought it from ebay, and only took 1 week to arrive.

Overall, the phone is very well built with a combination of metalic chrome and matt plastic finish, not at all feel like a budget phone. The build quality is comparable to HTC Sensation in my view. and its a very compact size (not bulky at all!) and very light, probably only slightly bigger than the old Motorola RAZR clamshell.

The phone support GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz + WCDMA 900/2100MHz.

The screen resolution is not very high though, and the UI seems have a bit of lag.

I will post a more detailed review once i have a bit of time with this little devil, especially the hardware configuration. and also, my A60 should arrive next week and when it does, i ll have a better comparison of the dual sim performance.

I'm still thinking the Gsmart cames with some firmware error that with the update will be solved and this answer corroborate that.

The Motorola is too expensive and have to show how it works. I hope the shadow from Google make that the rom works fine from the beggining.

See all

Just received my FET T8888 and wan to get stuck in. Issues so far. Windows XP PC asks for Qualcomm HSUSB driver. Anyone know where to get one ? ..... Not tried on Win7 yet. Struggling with Google Navigator - doesn't appear to work on 3G - only Wifi. Want to root the phone so I can fully control. Sure I've seen a guide somewhere.

It is the same compay, only they have different websites, some of those is etowalk.com, etotalk.com and futurejs.com.

In my experience they will change between what website is active for PayPal payments. My guess is that at some point, after to many PayPal disputes the site will be closed by PayPal :-) For a long time the site etowalk linked to futurejs.com for PayPal payments...

I have bought a couple of phones from them, and their initial support is better then other Chinese sellers. The will help you with software updates and such. However, I bought a HD958 from them, where the microphone was broken (hardware problem). They were not really happy to repair or exchange the phone. I had to file and escalate a PayPal dispute. Thank god for PayPal protection - the ruled in my favor and got me a full refund :-)
