BAUHN 4.5" Android 4.1 Smartphone (4GB NAND, Dual SIM) $199 from Aldi
Just spotted this on Aldi's latest catalogue. You can see the product page here on BAUHN's website (except it's dead slow at the moment). $199 for the following smart phone:
- 4.5" IPS screen 960x540
- MTK6577 1GHz Dual Core + SGX531 GPU
- Dual SIM with WCDMA on 850/2100MHz (good for Telstra/Vodafone)
- 5MP rear camera + 0.3MP front camera
- Bluetooth + AGPS/GPS
- Micro SDHC slot
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
It would be in stock starting 6 March.
A good deal? Maybe. You can get other MTK6577-powered 4.5" Android phones cheaper from BuySKU/Banggood/Whatever, for probably $150-$180 delivered. What Aldi offers is (1) Australian store with GST price (2) 60 days satisfaction warranty (3) 1 year general warranty.
Performance wise it would be slower than Qualcomm MSM8260 + Adreno 220 in the other popular $199 phone. It does have a 2000mAh battery though.
