anyone else notice more and more of Phone Arena's stories come straight from GizChina.com?
or, put another way, if you're interested in reading about all the new Chinese phones that are coming with 5" screens and quad-core MTK6589 chips clocked at 1.2GHZ then just check GizChina.com

For $230.00 it's not a bad phone at all, in fact I think the Chinese consumers are very lucky that they are the real superpower, in smartphone production. Even if they are copies, it's their customers that are benefitting. So many beautiful "but cheap" phones staying in China, that a lot of westerners would love too own.

So cheap... I would be tempted, but well I worry more about software issues that may come from a lesser known company. Not to mention being a pentaband user there's a very slim chance it could even work for me.
I would like to see a better known brand take on a Mediatek CPU and make a sub $400 1080p similar to this. Unless that is the Mediatek chip is seriously underpowered for a 1080p display.

I wouldn't mind paying more for for technology these days. I mean for a phone with these specs to cost $230? Think about how much the labourers get... kinda sad :(

Let's not forget iPhone & iPod made in China ...iPad made in Korea.
Hmmm labour costs where's the rest of the big $$$ you pay for Apple product going ???
Reckon China in the past yes cheap knock offs catering for their own market.
Now that they have the technology are developing their own competitive Brands.
Interesting but what would you expect from the now 2nd biggest economic superpower.
