My phone has been shipped!
« on: December 02, 2013, 09:18:04 PM »
To those that haven't seen my thread on .org before it disappeared: I ordered a Chinese off-brand phone whose specs seem ridiculously good for the price. Bit of an experiment on my part, might work out extremely well, or it might be the worst decision of my life.

Anyway, it's been shipped. They even provided a picture of my package. Professionalism, and all that.

In b4 rant about horrible Chinese-to-English translation in product manual.
I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

You sure? It should be there when you go to order details.

might be the worst decision of my life.

Those girls we met in Singapore back in '98 was the worst decision of your life, don't try to block it out.
Wait, is Thork gay or does he just have a thing for lipstick?

We don't talk about that. As far as I'm concerned, '98 never happened.

OMG IT'S HERE!

They declared it as "replacement parts" valued at $15, so I didn't have to pay tax. <3 China.

I'm about to leave for work, but I shall be posting my first impressions soon.

First impressions are pretty good. The build quality is fair - about what I'd expect from an Android phone. The screen looks really amazing.

I took a picture of the phone I've been temporarily using. It's another example of "moar pixels != better pictures", but it does look quite good when scaled down: clicky click
