Hi Vince,
You are doing a good job helping people specially online buyer to know about the reality of the products they going to buy from their hard earned money. Now please give me a piece of advice about Thunderbird i5 LTE performance, Resolution and specially about 8 MP camera in comparison with Galaxy s3.
After your review I will decide wether I shall go for it or not.

hi Wajid,
Thunderbird i5 LTE
its an older Processor MTK6575 (single core) (GPU+CPU) which totals at 2.0 ghz
FWVGA resolution @ 480*800 pixels
8 megapixel camera (same with jiayu G2/G3 cameras, same sensor CMOS sensors) same quality with the other 8.0 megapixel cameras, i’ve tested one of my friend’s phone a jiayu G2 (8 megapixel camera – nice quality, 720p audio and video recording, the phone is fast since its dual core, and IPS quality screen – clearer image and color visibility as well as visible angle)
the thunderbird is a nice iphone clone (single SIM, 2.3 Gingerbread android, large battery @ 3000mAh, GPU – PowerVR SGX531 Ultra for 3D games, metal frame) overall its cheaper.

Which Galaxy S3 are you referring? because there are a lot of models in my site.

Hllo vincent is me again….

hey im wondering to buy the Huawei Honor 2… is the best Quad-core now for sale (for me), but im a little concern about the bought… so i have a few questions.

- Is it safe to buy in fastcardtech? a have read too many bad comments about it.
- Do u think there is another cellphone with same characteristics that u reccomend?

Reply

Vincent on December 15, 2012 at 11:08 pm.

hello miguel

the huawei honor 2 is a nice phone, but if you want an even much cheaper quad core, then try the ZTE U950 http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/zte-u950-cheapest-quad-core/ its $209 dollars i think its the cheapest quad core at present, but you do have to sacrifice screen quality because its only a QHD Display instead of a an IPS which is available on the Honor 2,
For me, its safe to buy at fastcardtech, i bought my phones there, and i have friends also bought from the site, just make sure to correctly place your address, and in terms of shipping, i would suggest EMS, which i use most of the time.

Vince

Hello Vincent;
God I am glad i bumped upon your page. Within the last 2 weeks I have seriously been considering buying a phone from China however, every time I made up my mind; I fell across a new website with different names of phones that look the same. Therefore I was really confused and I have been putting off buying because returning unwanted items back to China is costly and I doubt I will secure a refund.

Basically the phone that I initially wanted to get was a phone that was similar/identical to the Samsung Galaxy SIII and my budget is about US$250.00; however I then came across the Note and I think I will get a phone similar to the Note 2 instead.

I came across this phone: http://www.bigboxsave.com/note-ii-n7300-5-7-inch-hd-ips-1280-720-screen-android-4-1-mtk6577-dual-core-1g-ram-3g-gps-smartphone.html

and this one: http://www.fastcardtech.com/Galaxy-Note-2-Mega
As well as other modules…

what is confusing me is simply the fact that they all LOOK THE SAME!! Do you know what the difference is?
And aside from the 2 models I just showed you do you have any personal recommendation?? I need a new phone rather urgently!

Thanks Vince! Valence

Vincent on January 5, 2013 at 5:48 am.

hello valence
thank you for visiting my site,
in my opinion, with your budget, you can already buy a quad core smartphone the ZTE U950 @ 193 dollars, http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/zte-u950-cheapest-quad-core/
http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/hdc-galaxy-note-2-ultra/ (this for me is much better in terms of spec)
the HDC Galaxy Note Mage (is only a QHD Display, IPS HD Display is much better)
or you can have the HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 Ex (which i currently use right now, its pretty gud, 1 gb ram, 1.2 ghz dual core, 12 megapixel camera, IPS HD Display)

CAN YOU TELL ME IS IT A GOOD PHONE

Reply

Vincent on January 24, 2013 at 4:07 pm.

hello aman,
At first i was quite skeptical at first, until i got my order
its a pretty good phone, i have ordered the HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 EX (extreme edition) and im using it right now, the only difference from your model of choice is that mine has 1 GB RAM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_RLNFhUaOY here is my short video review of the phone
ive tested the phone myself especially with antutu and got a score range between 5700 to 5900
Screen is excellent, Real IPS, real 1 GB RAM, ROOTED Android 4.0 ICS, decent 12 megapixel camera
here is what you should do before you order.
sometimes language barrier often is a problem
ask them first if the model is available or in stock just to be sure
you can make your order now, make sure your mailing address is correct,
you can choose what courier service you like, i prefer EMS, you have a waiting time of about 2 weeks from the date of the shipping, not on the order
because they have to ship it first then thats the start of the 2 weeks,
you have to wait about 3 days for the tracking number to be online (so you can be certain where your package is located at present)
me, i always asked them when my package will be shipped, when my tracking number will be online etc… so that i will be prioritized hehe

as for the fraud allegations, i’m not so certain of the sources but from my experience i haven’t been a victim,
i think most of it is due to miscommunication, cause ive experienced alot when talking to them, so an advice asked them on simple words and just be professional on the language
or word of choice.
i hope this helps

best regards,
vince

Hello sir,
its a good phone, but it think HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 is better because the LTE is 512 MB in RAM, the phone is 100% full featured and has playstore so you can install apps to your device.
Steps in buyinh
1. visit http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/ and then choose the phone you like
2. click on the link with a price of the phone (image)
3. you will then be redirected to fastcardtech.com the reseller of the phone
4. Register (its a requirement to fastcardtech) make sure your address and contact information is correct (for shipping)
5. you may now order (choose accessories and such additions, request to your order)
6. SHIPPING (EMS, DHL, reg mail) personally i prefer EMS, its quicker and safer

Hope this helps

Hi Vince,

I’m thinking of getting the following phone:-

HDC Galaxy i9300 S3 Plus Andorid 4.0 MTK6577 Dual Core 2GHz 3G Dual Sim Standby 8MP Camera

Is it true that this phone is GSM 3G compatible ?

Is it also true:-

Connectivity
Connectivity Technology: GSM network & WCDMA – Standard SIM card (Dual SIM)
Network Band: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz & WCDMA 850/2100MHz
Data Technology: GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA
Bluetooth: Bluetooth 2.0
WLan: Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/a
USB: USB 2.0
GPS: GPS, built-in GPS chipset

If so I will get this phone until I can find Rom firmware for:-

http://www.fastcardtech.com/goods.php?id=8113

FCT haven’t able to give me a link so that I download and flash this firmware.

I also checked Talkinmobi and found this firmware:-

HDC Galaxy S3 G9300
http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shareid=142493&uk=369379295

http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/rom-download/

Another would be the HDC Galaxy Note 2 Mage, its a value

Hi Vince,

can the HDC Galaxy Note 2 N9589 and the Galaxy Note 2 Mage be Rooted ?

Also do these phones have the following connectivity GPRS,EDGE,3G,HSPA, HSUPA.

If so I may be would be interested.

Re. my HDC Galaxy G9300 is of no use to me now until I find the correct flash.
Have tried to flash using ICS.V1_3.120921.FWVGA.4P4_COM_EN_SAM, and now get a white screen with the samsung bootup tune. Cannot get into the recovery mode Power on volume up pressed no more :(
But as the phone was not useful I had to try. Phone can still be flashed so maybe in time I can find the correct flash.

Best Regards,

Hello neisha,
Is the phone still in warranty? if yes, you may return it back to them but it will cost you shipping,
furthermore, please contact fastcardtech and ask them if you need to return it or they will just refund you for your cost in the repair of your mobile.
btw, how did the screen broke? was it already broken when it reached you?

did you purchase your phone at fastcardtech? if so, you can return it to fastcardtech for a replacement (if under warranty).
or another case might be, you can have it fixed on your phone store, i think the display matches with other touch screen devices such as samsung, although it might cost more.

Hello Vincent,
i am Lodovico and write from Italy.

Thank you for your website, i think it is very useful because
its difficult for me to understand if some chinese smartphones that can be found searching on the web are actual devices or fake devices
There are many websites that sell various smartphones models and brands,
and it is not easy to understand if the brand is a known brand or its an unknown low quality brand.

Collecting the various brand and models in your website, the user can be more confident on the existence and reliability of the brand and of the specific smartphone model.
So thank you again for your work.

I see you give many useful informations about the smarphones, so the user can choose the one that fits best with his needs.
The user can choose the smarphone basing on the many informations you provide.

If i can give you a suggestion, i would add some information about actual display and camera quality,
because the user can select the highest resolutions but, as you know, this information is not enough to tell the actual quality of the display and of the camera:
Having two devices with same display and camera resolution, there are other parameters , like brightness, contrast, sharpness, camera sensor sensitivity that can make the difference .
And this information are many times not provided by the seller: only purchasing the device and testing it, the user can get this information… so the user should buy the device before choosing the device to buy :)
Perhaps, the user can search for informations on forums or online videos, but its very hard to find reliable information to compare display/camera quality of two devices.

For example,
now i would like to buy a good quality smartphone – phablet, with very big screen (from 5.7 inch minimum to 7 inch maximum), and quad core.

I see there are many of such devices (but perhaps very few over 6 inch), for example
Star n9589
Cubot a6589
HDC galaxy note 2 n9589
ZOPO ZP950+
etc
I can choose the most powerful because there are online videos testing the antutu benchmarks,
but i cant choose the better display/camera quality because
they have about the same camera/ display resolution, but perhaps some of them are better than the other
in contrast, sharpness, touch screen responsiveness, camera sensor sensityvity etc…
so some information about this parameters could be very useful

For example, i would like to buy the Star n9589, can you tell me if it has good display / camera quality, compared to the others?

Thank you!
Lodovico

Vincent on March 14, 2013 at 1:06 pm.

hello sir
thank you for visiting my website,
in terms of quality, zopo is an original chinese brand which you may opt to go,
hdc, star – mainly manufactures clones (s3 clones, galaxy note 2 clones)
in terms of support (software and firmware) zopo has an official website
therefore if it it were me, i would go for either lenovo, zopo, huawei, xiaomi, Meizu – although a bit more expensive

in terms of speed (antutu), the hdc galaxy note 2 n9589, (all mtk6589 quad core phones performs the same)
Display quality (go for IPS 720p display @ 1280 x 720 pixels, the more the better), i have a HDC galaxy s3 i9300 EX which has the same display, and i can personally say this that it is beautiful, clear, vivid)
Memory (go for 1 GB, 2 GB if you can)
Camera (megapixels, ZTE, Huawei, Zopo have nice cameras)
Battery: always go for 2500 or better especially for 5.5 or higher displays

Best regards,
Vince

vicolodo on March 21, 2013 at 6:07 pm.

Hello Vincent,
i see you added the review of the smartphone cubot a6589
What do you think about it?
It is a good device?

It has a lower benchmark than the HDC galaxy note 2 n9589
(11500 of the cubot vs 12700 of the HDC),
but reading the features, it seems to have the same features (same processor, gpu, resolution etc),
but better camera quality : 3 mpix / 13mpix of the CUBOT vs 2 mpix / 8 mpix of the HDC

Perhaps difference in benchmark could depend from other factors,
like active processes in the smartphone during the test…do you agree?

Thank you!

cpu model: quad-core ARMv7 Processor (VFPv4, NEON)

however CPU-Z showed me this:
hardware: mt6589

so, which is correct?

besides, there is an app named ‘software update’. can it really do the update and solve the existing problems ?

May i know what phone model specifically? because there are alot of models of S4.
Most chinaphones advertise 13 megapixel camera, however quality wise, its far from the real thing, i don’t say its bad, its just not comparable with other 13 megapixel camera currently available, most take decent pictures good for social media’s like facebook, youtube, etc…

Hi Vincent,

Thanks for the reply, Actually a seller in India sold it to me as original S4 and with much effort i have figured out that its not a genuine s4 :( Like it has Android 4.2.9 whereas original s4 comes with 4.2.2 android. In settings i saw applications named MTK Android suite etc. So basically I do not know what you are looking for when you ask for a specific model. If you can tell me where in the phone to look for it I might be able to look and tell you. Please let me know.

Thank you.

Yup, there is certainly plenty of manufacturers, most of which are unknown, The known ones include, HDC, Zopo, Firefly, Star, ZTE, Meizu, OPPO and lenovo. HDC and Star often have the same phones and are just rebranded, Zopo seems to have the best looking and premium made smartphone as well as ZTE, Meizu, and OPPO. Although the latter 3 manufacturers are a lot pricier than other rivals. http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/hdc-galaxy-s5-n9600/, seems the best price among the rest of the phablets available, or you could check out its big brother, http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/hdc-galaxy-mega/

I bought a Thl w8s aug 8 with Visa from Shenzen SXV Technology Co,Ltd 283USD
Got order nr and tracking id.
First tracking event was 8/16/2013 “the item has been dispathed from Sweden Post Direct Link’s international terminal for onward transport abroad”
Next and last tracking event 9/04/2013 “local mail tracing”
Nothing happend so I opened dispute 9/26 -no reacktion from seller
I escalated dispute 10/2. Called Sweden Post -they checked tracking id -100% sure the package has
not reached Sweden. Still says seller’s logistics “the item is in Sweden” I say it is unbelivible how they can belive that. I have give Emma at Shenzen phone nr.to check with Sweden Post but it seems like they think I have got the phone.Haven’t heard anything from Ali Express.What can I do ,what have I done wrong? Exist buyers protection or is it sellers protection.

Hello Ola,

Did you open dispute and issued refund from paypal? so that you can get your money back. There is risk when making transactions especially on China.
When it comes to good customer support, i purchase on merimobiles, they have constant 24/7 online chat support, i bought my iOcean X7 turbo, i bought it there. When i purchase, also i usually prefer to pay via Paypal so i can guarantee a refund or money back.

Best Regards,
Vince

Hello Jim,

can you enter recovery mode? what did you delete in the sd card and phone storage?
could you elaborate on being dead? does it still charge? Can you access recovery mode? is the phone still detected by the computer?

Best Regards,
Vince

Hi vince,

From recovery mode i made a full factory reset and format the sdcard also i think had deleted the boot file it started to show “ENTRY QPST DOWNLOAD.” and if connected to PC it prompts me to “format sdcard” which i did that worsen the situation and the phone is totally dead. can access recovery mode anymore but phone still detected by computer.
BTW, the phone is rooted with CWM installed.

Hope you can help me give solution.
Thanks for your quick reply.

Hello Guenther,

is this the dual core version, may i know the full specification of your phone? maybe you can use HDC Galaxy S3 or Star B92M, most china phones are rebranded anyway, but make sure to back up your old rom just to be safe.
ive searched and could not find any room specific to goophone, but you can try similar roms from other manufactures btw. make sure the ROMS you will flash have the same speficications

Best Regards,
Vince

Hello ripon,

if the camera doesnt work, it basically means that you flash the incorrect rom of your phone

Hello Leo,

Pros when you buy China Phones,
- a lot cheaper
- most have better hardware and works great most of the time

Cons
- aftermarket support is not very good
- usually when there is a solution you need prior knowledge of the inner workings of android for it to work
- usually a headache if there is a problem

If you say you are electronically challenge, my opinion would be to buy samsung products to a store nearest to you, so that you can call or return the product if there is a problem

Best Regards,
Vince

Hello Vincent, great website with much information.
I bought a Cosmo mini S4 recently with a MTK6589 processor and
Androidversion 4.2.2. The internal memory is 4GB and I have also a
micro SD card in it with 32GB capacity but now when i have installed
about 10 apps the phone says internal memory is full but it is not, not
even close to full. What is the problem and can I do something to solve
the problem?

Vincent on February 22, 2014 at 1:40 am.

Hello Jonas,

you can go to settings and change where applications are installed, then go to apps and transfer them to your SD card

Best Regards,
Vince

Jonas on February 22, 2014 at 9:27 am.

Hi Vince, where in settings do i change that? Where they are installed? When i go to apps directly and try to move those apps im not allowed.

Vincent on February 23, 2014 at 2:20 am.

Hello jonas,

can you determine if the SD card is properly detected by your phone? in the settings, go to apps and look for downloaded or all apps and transfer your apps to the SD card.

best Regards,
Vince
