    Is this the phone I am looking for?

    Original mobilephone LTE Android 4G lte phone 4g network smartphone unlocked 2gb MT6595 Octa core 2GHz Android 5 Inch HD Screen-in Mobile Phones from Electronics on Aliexpress.com

    This looks like the phone I want, but it looks too good to be true.

    The spec details the new mtk6595 chip for 4G LTE which is my main criteria.

    I would have the UMI x3 but it is far too big for me, even this is a bit on the big side IMHO.

    Any thoughts?
    Anybody know of other manufacturers using this chip yet?

    Thanks for posting that up. I've been waiting for phones with MTK6595 to arrive for some time now. They are due to be a game changer in bringing the price of smartphones down to consumer levels.
    It'll be interestng to see how it holds up. If you do get one, let us know how you get on with it please. Oh, and tell us how good the retailer is as well. Always handy to know when buying from China.

    Has anyone read the description by the retailer? Nothing like a bit of Chinglish!

    Look very tempting in description. However i feel 8GB ROM is not really enough for that high specs. At least 16GB would do. Not sure about the Expandable storage with MicroSD Card too. Please report back.

    You have to remember guys that this is a 'China phone'. I've had two now and tbh, they have both done exactly what they have said on the tin. They are never of the most recent spec, but this new MediaTek chipset should be a great leveller.
    They do cut corners to keep costs down such as using Bluetooth 2.0 instead of 4.x and incorporating low storage capacities; relying on SD cards to bump this up. However, both phones I've ordered and used have done sterlign serivce and are both going strong. Battery life is the same as per mainstream smartphones and you will have to charge them everyday if you have all of the bells and whistles turned on, however they also have the benefit of having removable batteries and often you will get two of them!
    Oh, and not one, to date, has caught fire

    I'd be interested in a "real person" review when people get theirs.

    I'm still waiting for the money to be taken from my account (I set up a second account for these things) and the money is still there. Think they may have pulled it, but I have yet to get an email either way.
