MT6577 4.5inch Mourinho NO2-M1 Shipping Early September to take on JiaYu G3

We’ve seen some very low-priced Android phones over the past few weeks with most people choosing the JiaYu G3 thanks to its large screen, dual-core CPU, great design and low price, but with all the delays could JiaYu lose out to Chinese phone maker’s┬áMourinho NO2-M which boasts a similar spec at a slightly lower price?

From these photos along and without even looking at the specification of the 4.5 inch Mourinho NO2-M I can see that the N02-M1 has 2 advantages over the JiaYu G3!

  1. It is seen working here and looks ready for production.
  2. It is in fact in production!

That’s not to say that the┬áMourinho NO2-M1 hasn’t seen its own share of delays as it has, but whatever problems they have had they seem to have them fixed and are now aiming at a 6th September release date.

So how does the Mourinho NO2-M1 compare to the JiaYu G3? Well both phones feature large 4.5 inch screens featuring QHD technology and the resolution of the N02-M1 is 960 x 540. Both the JiaYu G3 and Mourinho NO2-M1 have great cameras with the rear being an 8 mega-pixel model and the front camera being a respectable 2 mega-pixel camera.

The Mourinho NO2-M1 will be available in 2 models one which features 512mb RAM while the other 1GB RAM and 4GB ROM with a dual-core MTK MT6577 cpu!

So both the Mourinho NO2-M1 and JiaYu G3 are pretty evenly specced with the only notable differences, other than design, being the Mourinho NO2-M1 battery is only an 1800mAh unit and that the Mourinho NO2-M1 costs a little less at only $110 while the JiaYu G3 is planned to cost slightly more at $125.

How about that design though? While some of us really like the class brushed alloy, almost iPhone 5 like, look of the JiaYu G3 there will be some of us who prefer the HTC One X inspired design and white plastic, lightweight, body of the Mourinho NO2-M1!

Which do you guy’s prefer? The JiaYu G3 or the┬áMourinho NO2-M1?

    Is Jiayu G3 going to change its initial 720 hd screen to qhd? I love more jiayu design, although i’d like it had the touch keys arrangment of mourinho (first from the left back key, home and last search button)

    I don’t like the mourinho design. Also Jiayu has gorilla glass, better design and a bigger battery for a price that I’m willing to pay for. I also heard the Jiayu G3 is aiming to launch September 10th. I WANT THE JIAYU G3!! xD

      I’m really excited for the G3 too, I just hope the quad-core G4 doesn’t take so long to launch…

    I’m getting the G3. It has a better hd screen, battery and design particularly the brushed alloy.

    How about custom roms and english support? I’s an important point for me.

    is jiayu g3 changing their screen resolution from hd(1280*720) to qhd(960*540)??

    This Mourinho will fail, doesn’t take rocket science to see there is no competition here should they be released at same time.

    And what’s with the “mourinho” name? Is this football field now

    LOL, Mourinho funny name, it surely be a successes in Portugal and to Real Madrid fans.
    JiaYu G3 theoretically should be better for only +15$.

      The G3 is back in my good books now that JiaYu are ready to produce them ­čśë
