2nd Batch of JiaYu G3 phones coming in 7 days!

Are you still waiting on your JiaYu G3 to arrive? Then we have great news as JiaYu are preparing 10,000 more units of their dual-core 4.5 inch to ship to customers in just 7 days.

According to this post on the JiaYu forum which was spotted by Gizchina reader Simon, JiaYu have 10,000 more phones in production which will be ready for delivery in just 7 days.

The post goes on to say that the majority of the 10,000 will be black unit again, with some of the phones being grey models. Those of you waiting for the white model JiaYu G3 will have to wait 9 days as materials are late arriving to the factory (possibly due to the current Chinese holiday).

Gizchina News of the week

Although the recent JiaYu G3 news has all been good, I can personally  say that I have yet to receive my order confirmation which I placed through JiaYu early last month! What’s more I chose the black version of the phone! Perhaps my message will come in the next few days and I’ll finally get one of these legendary phones in my hand once and for all.

Thanks to Simon again for the tip.

How about you guy’s any updates on your orders? Did you manage to receive one yet?

      Actually, there were at least 8 colors, but the most popular are black, grey and silver. That’s why the factory will be producing them as long as all the pre-orders are more or less fulfilled.

      Frankly speaking, the less paint you have, the more immaculate your phone will look for years cause there will be no visible difference between scratches and bare metal ^_o

        Only 3 are official production colours though.

    I have just found images of all the colors in jiayu’s forum, but i dont know how to upload them here so i will just post a link to theme. There is no white color.
    What color do you like most, i would like to get silver one, but I dont want to wait so may be i will choose black color.

    Perhaps it would have been better if they also stated how many units they have in back order. It’s useless to excite people by stating you are preparing 10,000 more units when 100,000 units have been pre ordered already.

    But JiaYu already failed major monkey balls in PR and marketing so anything new they say won’t hurt their bloodied and battered image much more.

    Where would you recommend buying one of these from? I have never dealt with any Chinese sellers/Websites so I don’t know who is good and who isn’t.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Here’s some stuff I found on another website. If anybody could translate well it would be great. Google is patchy at best!


    Glass problems with first batch (Oh no!):

    Statement on glass problems. Says next batch will be delayed. Was this before the latest statement in this blog?:

      It would be great if someone translate reviews, because google.translate from chinas is really bad idea 😀
      Are these problems serious, I can belive it. JiaYu is my dream phone and now, when we are so close to get it, some problems 🙁

    Hi, I have read on several forums that G3 is dual SIM but only one module phone i.e. it has only one IMEI. Could anybody explain what that means or what problems may it cause ? Will it be problem if both sims are from one operator while no problems if SIMs are from different op’s ? What I have also read that same “feature” has also G2. Can anybody also confirm that’s its no problem at all ??

      maybe this is a big problem in Turkey. All imei numbers must recorded on communication department. any imei number that not recorded are treated as illegal phone. to catch this stituation, public system control all calls. if 2 different gsm number use one imei number than system say that this phones are clone and illegal. after 30 days all calls ended for this imei.

    Poor quality control I guess. This happens when you rush production to meet orders. They did promise to do “rigorous quality inspection” for the second round.

    Did anyone get any of these phones yet. I have been waiting for six weeks now for a silver phone, anyone got a black one or a white one yet?
