    get the Moto G (which a mate got for $220 last week at JB)


      only thing I HATE about the motoG that this one has over it:
      •Card Reader: Support Micro SD card up to 32GB
      (and to a lesser extent the removable battery)

    Yeah I have to agree with people suggesting to buy a brand name phone with good support from the manufacture and the community of owners. At this price point I can't see the value in buying no name phone.

    No 4G…


    How does this stand against Lenovo P 780 http://www.antelife.com/lenovo-p780-mtk6589-quad-core-smartp...


      Same cpu and screen res so pretty much the same, only difference is that P780 has a 4000mAh battery that's marketed as a phone that can charge other phones.


      Limited 3 G band, only 2100MHz.

      GSM 900/1800/1900MHz WCDMA 2100MHz.

    The price can already get you a MT6592 (True Octa Core) phone, MT6589 should really be in the $200 or $150 range by now.

        it's not as bad as you think, it's getting better rapidly
        especially the MT6592 is pretty much as good as the Qualcomm S600.


          my tronsmart T428 died pretty much as soon as I got it, very disappointing, and wouldn't play a large number of files wither chugging, they would play fine on my acer a510…

          finally I got plex up and running and it was smooth, then the thing dies completely…sighs


          Tronsmart T428 uses a Rockchip CPU though? not MTK
          MTK is on another level, not quite Qualcomm level yet though.
          I wouldn't expect much from mainland Chinese mobile CPU manufacturers like Rockchip and Allwinner


    Aldi just do not have any good deals anymore.


    was excited about this Bauhn phone until I found this Octa Core for USD$199 http://www.tinydeal.com/presell-thl-w200s-50-ips-mtk6592w-8-...


    this china phone for US$149.99 has pretty much the same specs.

    similar spec phones can be found for less (this is just the first I saw)


    Good luck finding a nice case to fit. Get a motoG and if you need more storage. http://www.meenova.com/st/p/m3r.html
