The screen is not great but I didn't expect it to be though I have to remember its 480 x 320 and really not a big issue. It functions fine and the touch response is very good i.e. on par with my SE Xperia Arc. Most phones are crap to read in sunlight except for the super omeled's.

Is it worth Ł250 ? not quite, but viewsonic knew it has little competition for this type of phone in the marketplace, with the main rivals being from China and as can be read on this forum many times, some people are reluctant to buy chinese phones for a variety of concerns.

Good luck with the RMA w_w.............,

Anyway if you know where I can get the user manual lets know, thanks

Too bad there's no mention of 3-way calls.

Rule 16 in the safety instructions says: do not disassemble the ViewPad. I'm so glad it doesn't say "do not disassemble the v350"! It also does not forbid rooting the v350, which I was glad to see.

I'm still hesitate whether ordering this phone or not... There are pros and contras as well.. and honestly not a cheap one to throw it in the bin if it's not working well.
Come on more and more reviews! :-)

Thanks for sorting the manual out, I even looked at that website but somehow missed out.

The battery life is fine , not a problem considering the 2 sims on standby. I have my screen brightness at two thirds up and bluetooth on permanently along with wifi. Had worse on earlier htc's.

If I was you I'd hold off buying for a week to see if a real issue appears, so far there are just small things..

If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer.........

I'll let you know how mine goes too. I refused delivery after Expansys issued an RMA. I then emailed them asking for further instructions since I could not attach the RMA to the package.

New bug discovered: v350 seems to have wiped out all SMS messages on one of the sims. This may not be a problem going forward, but just a warning to back them up, if needed, before inserting the sim.

P1rat3- RMAs are normally only needed if you ship them a package so that they know they have agreed to accept it. Normally if you refuse a package, then there's no need for authorization, as they can't possibly refuse it and have it go back out. And since the package was not tampered, they can expect the original packing slip to be in there, so they will know which order it was.

Yeah, I just got the same from Expansys. Phew. Refusing delivery was the right thing for me.

Here's what they emailed me -

Hi all,

I am quite dissapointed with reviews of V350 so far, I was really looking fourward. I am also afraid of reviews of GSMART G1310 and G1317, they seem also scaring.

Anyway what are the possibilities today?

I guess just two: Gigabyte or ViewSonic..

Users of V350 or G13%:

1. Do you think it is ready enough to use it for calling, messaging and 3G (I take into account all issues mentioned before)?

2. When I am using 3G data on primary SIM, is anybody able to call me on 2nd SIM (it is the desider)?

3. Is price 290EUR (20.9.2011) for V350 acceptable when comparing with GSMART series (actually 190 EUR for G1310 and 219 EUR for G1315)

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

I ordered my V350 from computeruniverse.net last saturday and I'm waiting for it to be delivered. I ordered it from that site because they should have it in stock and they deliver to Belgium.

I also read the negative reviews (before I ordered) but I'm hoping I'm in the same category as jeroensteijl. I'm not looking for a superdevice like a fast-big-top HTC smartphone, I'm just looking for a decent dual-sim smartphone. Hopefully I can live with the negative points, and it will turn out to be sufficient enough while I wait for a top dual-sim smartphone to hit the market.

The G1345 is available in Hungary! I think I will forget the VS 350 and go for the Gigabyte. It has 800Mhz and 2.3 Gingerbread! And seems stronger battery than previous Gigabytes.

I've just arrived from the shop... :-) The Gsmart G1345 is in my hand!! It is on my desk in a fancy black box.
Now I just have to wait until my working day ends and running home to play with it. (I'm afraid I will not wait till 17:00 :-) )
I will let you know about my experiences.

My V350 arrived yesterday. After much deliberation, I decided to open up the box and try it out as opposed to sending it back unopened to Expansys or refusing delivery.

It must be said that I am not an experienced smart phone user. I do consider myself fairly adept with electronic gadgets and gizmos, but up until now I had been using a very old Motorola SLVR w/ just text and voice plan. The main reason I wanted a new phone was so that I could get dual sim functionality (previously I only had my work phone that I used for personal too as I didn't want two phones - but I hope to change jobs soon, so I figured separating work from personal numbers/activities would be wise!). Anyway, I feel this is important because I don't have experience with other current Android phones to compare the V350 to...

So on the V350 experience so far, I must say that I am overall pretty happy with it. I did experience a forced restart within 5 minutes of turning it on thanks to the 3D screens... so I turned them off and am just using the plain vanilla launcher, and haven't had an issue since then. I agree with others who comment that the hardware just can't keep up with the 3D graphics.

Other than that, things seem to be working pretty well. I put both sims in they are working, had no issues getting my Google and Hotmal email accounts all set up, imported contacts no problem, and everything is running fairly smooth.

I have a couple of concerns that I am watching over the next few days to see how they play out:

- I am not getting great reception at work on Sim 1, while Sim 2 is nice and strong. This may be due to Sim 1 being TMobile and Sim 2 being AT&T, but we shall see. Since Sim 1 is my personal/data sim, might not be a big deal if the same situation is not present at home and while out around town.

- I am having a problem calling my TMobile voicemail. For some reason the call won't go through. I was able to set it up successfully last night... but since then, haven't been able to connect to it.

I will continue to update on my progress with the V350. Please keep in mind that I am not the most discerning smartphone user in terms of speed and graphics since I don't have anything to compare it to...

Default finally received v350 (ViewSonic)

Hi pplz

Today I've finally received my ViewSonic, after 11 weeks of waiting.
Looks fine, works also great and fast - no complaints so far.
Has nice menu and recognized both sims directly.

No disappointments, happy to have it! =)

Hello All!

I tried to find out any information about Huawei U8520 on the official Huawei's sites (global and australian) without success. Also I tried to confirm the information about FCC approval this device and also I didn't find official documents. FCC doesn't know about Huawei U8520! I suppose it's a fake gadget. May be I'm wrong?

Its not fake, here is the FCC reports and user manuals: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout =500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=275355&fcc_i d=%27QISU8520-51%27

There are a lot of contradicting info, I too wish Huawei would release the product on their official site. So far I have seen different reports about screen size, cpu speed and memory.

According to all the specs I have read it says its 3g 850/1900 however when i contacted a shop in Australia who have it on presale to confirm the screen size he said yes its 3.2inch screen but its 3g 900/1900.. so I am waiting for it to be released first before I believe any reports on it.

also weird it has not appeared on gsmarena or phonearena yet.

1900 is no good in Australia. Did you mean to type 2100? 900 is only good outside metropolitan areas.

Nope, thats what they said, yet the official page says 850/1900.. they are saying 900/1900.. so who really knows.

also its now on dse.com.au listed as a 600mhz cpu.. so dam annoying!

Default A60 - custom ROM problem

Hello there !

I just want to ask for a help with 'flashing' A60 (I've bought it with original ROM so without Android Market, so that's the reason of it :-) - when I'm trying to do steps as it's written in tutorial posted here before (flexmanual.doc on megaupload), I have a problem in connecting my phone with PC in 'off-mode' -> PC (Win 7) don't recognize the phone (or it does as "Lenovo Preloader" but dont have drivers for it).

I've tried to search everywhere (also in spanish, chineese, etc forums), tried to install a lot of drivers (from Lenovo site, some development android kits and lot more) but with NO SOLUTION

So after few days of useless trying I'm giving up and asking you for help, if somebody can know how to solve it ? I know, somebody here already wrote about similar issues, so propably it will be helpfull not just for me, because it seems to be regular problem.


Sorry for my English, hope it's understandable

I've tried to search everywhere (also in spanish, chineese, etc forums), tried to install a lot of drivers (from Lenovo site, some development android kits and lot more) but with NO SOLUTION

So after few days of useless trying I'm giving up and asking you for help, if somebody can know how to solve it ? I know, somebody here already wrote about similar issues, so propably it will be helpfull not just for me, because it seems to be regular problem.


Sorry for my English, hope it's understandable

Yeah, it's not a snapdragon but a 7227 like the V350.

1900 is useless for Australian networks. Mind you, if you asked at dick smiths, they aren't the best technically.

I will let you know about my experiences.
As I see it, this Gsmart 1345 looks like the most interesting android dual sim.

Did you buy it from the hungary website? Do they ship abroad?

Yes, g1345 is dual sim. and its very good. i have 1315 for a week and from yesterday i use 1345. Web surfing is much much smoother. Everything is much faster.strength of the ring is much stronger. sound in the earpiece I'm not sure, but it seems to me to be a little stronger. I have a little more used to it judged.

g1345 is very similar in appearance to g1315. only a little longer, so now the exterior dimensions are as iphone3

So, anyone who has the GSmart G1345, could you please tell me if the sim cards can be simultaneously active?
Will the phone notify me of an incoming call on the second sim while I'm speaking using the first sim?
Or for instance while I'm browsing the web using the first card, whill the second card still be active and allow me to answer an incomming call?

Would also apreciate some info on the battery life...

Cheers!

Hi! It is dual standby. If you're speaking or browsing with sim1 the sim2 goes to unavailable. The notifications depends on your service provider or you can divert the calls to sim1 but be careful not to answer it bcause it can be charged! But in this case you will see if somebody calls you (normal case you know who knows the other number and you can decide whether it is sim1 call or sim2 diverted)

After 2,5 days usage it seems the batter lasts about 1-1,5day but let's see one or two weeks later

i have T mobile Netherlands.
The data connection works.
Make sure that your datanetwork is sim 1
also set the sim 1 as default datanetwork.

I also find some problems by switching from wifi to mobile internet.
when it switches there is no connection until i disable wifi, than it works fine again... (are there more with this problem ??) is this some setting ??

Jeroen, having to turn off wifi before establishing a data connection is pretty standard procedure, so dont worry.

I suspect you're correct, although I would call this a deficiency -- even if widespread. There are more sensible ways for the device to act.

It could first of all leverage the two uplinks, and load balance between them for increased performance (which would be quite useful if tethering from a pc that has a multi-tabbed browsing session).

Or it could automatically favor one connection over another, when both GSM and wifi are available. When a preferable type of uplink becomes available, there could be a popup asking if you want to switch (to ensure it doesn't interrupt a transaction).

Android certainly needs to evolve more. It seems there is rapid effort going into all the various trivial apps, but not as much focus on the core essentials of the OS.

Someone tried calling me while I was reading the news over wifi. My GSM data connection was disabled, but the call was still diverted to voicemail.

I was quite disappointed with that. But I'm not sure if it's the network that failed, or the v350. Belgian gsm networks are generally unreliable, so it's hard to know where the fault is.
