You can cut a watermelon on the Newman N1 Gorilla glass Chinese phone: Video!

Another great video showing off the strength of a low cost Chinese phone! This time we get a good look at the Newman N1 being put through a nasty looking screen scratch resistance test!

The Newman N1 looks drop dead gorgeous! It is as simple as that! Although many of you are  torn between the Newman N1 and the JiaYu  G3, I’m positive that you can all agree the N1 is a fantastic looking Chinese Android phone!

Best of all it’s not all just good looks! Just like the JiaYu G3 dual-core, 4.5 inch phone we featured earlier today, the Newman N1 also features an extremely resistant and scratch proof Corning Gorilla glass display! But don’t take my word for it just watch the video below!

    There’s a phone like this, i think this is it, in the merimobiles…however i did not see any mention about gorila glass, even thought its pre order.

    Same for JiaYu G3. Pre order and dont mention about gorila glass, and pre order.

      JiaYu do state the G3 has Gorilla glass on their website, it’s strange an online seller would miss it out!

    Some sites says opposite things to other sites, dont mention about the gorila glass…

    Android-sale is trusty?

    Anyone know the manufacturer’s website? I’d like to confirm that this has 850/900/1900/2100 MHz frequencies for both 2g and 3g service. Above it says it does, but other websites only show 850 and 2100 for WCDMA.

    It appears that this phone will have only a 1700 mAh battery, 1000 mAh less than the JiaYu G3. Makes me a little nervous as battery life is important and this seems to be a weakness of Android phones
