Earlier this month, we talked about a device out of China called the Mpai 909T. It was unique as it offered a fingerprint scanner for cheap, but that’s not the case anymore. The new MPIE G7 specs are worth noting, and not just because of a fingerprint scanner…
Gionee has put out some slim devices, but they seem to have outdone themselves with their latest smartphone. The Gionee Elife S5.1 is gearing up to hit the streets, and when it does, it will be the world’s thinnest smartphone.
The OnePlus One dubbed itself a “Flagship Killer” when it hit the streets, and it looks like another company is coming to steal their thunder. The IUNI U3 is the name of the new handset, and it’s bringing a QHD display and stellar specs to the table for the low price of $320.
Yesterday we talked about the Nubia Z7’s arrival in India, and if you live in the states and felt left out, we’ve got some great news. It’s not the Z7, but the ZTE Nubia 5S mini LTE is coming to the U.S.
Last year QHD displays were more myth than reality, but this year we’re seeing more companies turn to the high-end screens. The Chinese manufacturer Elephone is joining the club as the Elephone P1000 specs reveal a QHD display and the handset will run on CyanogenMod.

It wasn’t long ago that we we’re talking about the Ascend Mate 2, and comparing it to devices like the Galaxy Note 3. The comparisons were mild as the Mate 2 could only hang with the Note in the display department. That may not be the case with the Huawei Ascend Mate 3, a handset that’s just shown up on a benchmarking site.
We’ve covered a lot of budget devices in the past and will cover many more in the future. The handsets come in many shapes and sizes, but we’ve yet to see one run Android KitKat for well under $100 bucks. Until today, that is when we came across the Leagoo Lead 3.
We really don’t why the major phone manufacturers haven’t cottoned on to the idea of a front-facing camera featuring autofocus. However, the iOcean X8 has front camera autofocus appeal and we imagine some other OEMs may consider bringing this to their smartphones. The iOcean X8 is for the Chinese market and so it’s anticipated that…
If you are in China and are on a tight budget but wish to get a new smartphone, how about taking a look at the Lenovo Vibe X S650. The Lenovo S650 aka Vibe X smartphone is very affordable, and if you visit Amazon you can pick it up for only 1499 Yuan, which is…
