Does anyone know if the JiaYu G3 and G4 support USB Host (USB On The Go) and MHL (HDMI output) feature?

Reply

hello jan,

jiayu g3 and g4 supports usb host but i don’t think it has hdmi output.
btw, both phones are pretty nice and on high demand.

what?? An MTK6589 (6588??) with a SGX531??
The 6589 chip has a 28nm architecture with an SGX544 GPU.
Are you sure about the specs?? Or is china fooling us again?

Reply

Vincent on January 13, 2013 at 8:13 am.

hello amore,

sori for my typo, i forgot to change the GPU specs, GPU specs are still TBD (to be determined)
anyway, tegra 3 (geforce) would be better for games,
fastcardtech still not sure when the phone will be available.

i think all 2013 releases of any brand on androids should come out at the least having a jelly bean 4.2 version .standard stock …4″HD IPS capacitive screen..a 8mp back cam dual led flash..a 2mp front cam..a 1Ghz dual core cpu..a 2Gb ddr3 ram..an 8GB internal storage cap…and pre installed wih the best free softs …Is there any model having these specs yet? i dont think you need a quadcored cpu for a mobile phone ..for a tablet yes

hello kurnoy,

thank you for visiting my site, 2013 more and more phones are starting to emerge with quad core cpu processor 1 or 2 gb ram and some even have full HD or 1080p display’s. for practicality though, most dual core phones nowadays are good enough, i am currently using an HDC Galaxy s3 i9300 ex, and its a pretty good phone its fast enough, it runs almost anything i throw at it, the battery is excellent, screen quality is gorgeous as it uses a 720p IPS display.
But if you want the fastest phone you can find that’s as fast as the original galaxy s3, if you’re into gaming, multitasking, then you better go for a quad core processor. anyway, just make sure that you get the most of the phone, like if your getting a quad core processor, make sure its fast and has a good GPU like nvidia tegra, o the new K3V2 processors, 720 or 1080p IPS display 2gb or 1 gb is fine, a huge battery 2000mAh to 3000mAh is enough.

for tablets though, better go for quad core, since we use our tablets mostly for games, multimedia, multitasking, then you want it to be quick and fast.
although, quad core processor phones and tablets cost a bit more than their dual core counterparts.
