It goes without saying this this is another top Chinese Smart phone!

OnePlus One, Best phone?

This is without a doubt the best phone you can buy at the price of just €269 for the small 16 GB version or €299 for the Huge 64 GB version. The only thing I can say that's missing with this phone, is the fact that it doesn't support an external memory card.
That being said, if you get yourself the 64 GB version which just cost  €30 more, you won't need any extra memory IMHO.
Up until now you have always had to wait for an invitation to buy one , you would gain an invite by taken part in the community forum and competitions and other stuff like that. Or you could receive an invite from someone else who had already bought one, if you where lucky enough to know such a person ;).

However that's all over, well as good as, now every Tuesday for 24 hours you can buy One without an invite. Here: https://oneplus.net/home

Let tell you a little about the actual phone, here just a few of the specs and the are GOOD: below I have added the link to there YouTube page and a video.
  • 5.5 inch IPS screen, 1920 * 1080 pixels Display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad Core 2.5GHz
  • 3GB RAM (LP DDR3, 1866MHz) + 64GB ROM

China Cell Phone ELEPHONE P5000

The battery Monster of the China Smart phones, the ELEPHONE P5000.

Elephone are not a well know brand for sure, but the certainly have some interesting phones. This baby as a 5350 mAh battery. They clam that it will run for 4 days before needing a recharge.

I don't know about you, but I think the phone looks just like a the new Samsung. The phone comes it at around 220 Euro, can't be bad if you check the Specs:

TK6592 1.7GHz Octa Core
5350mAh Battery
5.0 Inch Screen, 1920*1080 Pixels
MTK6592 1.7GHz Octa Core
Support 2G & 3G Network
2GB RAM + 16GB ROM
16 MP Back Camera + 8 MP Front Camera
Android 4.4 System
Front Camera 8 MP
Rear Camera 16 MP
Multi-point Touch

At the moment I am stuck between getting this phone and the one below, the THL T200. The Battery is actually the weak spot of the THL T200.

Anyway you make up your own mind, here is the link to the P5000 : http://www.elephone.hk/P5000.html

China Cell phone THL T200

This is a very interesting phone. I have been looking at buying myself a new phone and although I would love to get the Elephone P1000, it may still be quite some time before it actually hits the market. I have been waiting for a Oneplus One invite for Months...NO luck :(

But the the THL T200 seems to be a great alternate.
Here the highlights
It has a 6 inch IPS Screen with a 1920x1080 pixel display :)
CPU: MTK6592 1.7GHz Octa core
It has 3G network, unfortunatly, no 4G.
2 GB RAM + 32GB ROM
13MP back camera + 8MP front camera
Android 4.2 System


And best of all is the price, it comes in at around 240 Euros plus P&P.

Watch this space, if I buy it I will do a full review!

Chinese Smart phones

There are loads of new Cell phones coming out of China and at great prices, or as a German might say 'a Handy'. I for one Love that terminology because lets be honest, they are very handy to have. Any way I wanted to tell you about the phone I purchased for my wife, the Doogee dagger dg550.
Its a massive 5'5 inch phone and a great improvement of her old Sony Xperia Tipo, which was an OK low end phone, just a bit on the small size.
She really likes the phone even though I thought it might be a bit to big for her, but that's not the case and she uses even uses it watching TV in the kitchen, not just facebook or even calling friends and family :)

Here are the Basic Specifications of the DG550:
  • Display 5.5-inch IPS OGS 720p HD (1280 x 720)
  • Processor 1.7GHz MTK6592 Octa Core
  • RAM 1GB Storage 16GB,
  • microSD card slot, up to 32GB (I heard that 64 GB works too)
  • Camera 13 Megapixel Rear Camera and 3 Megapixel Front-Facing Camera
  • Battery 2600 mAh
  • Connectivity GPS, microUSB 2.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth Networks 3G/WCDMA: 850/2100 MHz Software Android 4.2 with Google Play
  • Dimensions 153 x 76 x 9 mm 180 grams
  • Colors Black or White
  • SIM slots 1x Normal SIM, 1x Micro SIM
For the price of around 150 Euros it an absolute bargain
The only down side, it took 3 weeks to arrive after order because I ordered it from Amazon, you could of course order via Coolicool
