    @Andi very impressive, looking at my finance I think this is a good alternative for the oppo find5. But how does the TD-SCDMA 3G affect us international potential consumers.

      TD-SCDMA 3G only works in China 🙁

        then no international buyer would show interest to buy this phone .

        I have here a source from wikipedia ” it does not require paired spectrum for downlink and uplink, spectrum allocation flexibility is also increased”, so im no communication engineer, but it sounds as if the TD-SCDMA could’ve have been compatible 3g network on the WCDMA spectrum. I don’t know im confused.

    another good option would be the Dream S…. I would hold out for that one instead of this….. As much I would like the Oppo Find 5 it would really depend on which is better on the pocket…..

    I asked one of Amoi top managers about this product, even sent him reference to your article, here is the answer:
    I have checked with my team. we have no this product now. My quad-core product will be mass production at end of Nov not this one…
    This is not real Amoi product….
    we cannot help you with this product.

      As I have heard this is an OEM from AMOI so yes they won\’t be able to help you with it.

    Andi you are a cock-tease! hehe (pardon my cheekiness)
    I got all excited reading your email only to open the blog and see it’s another disappointment. OK waiting for a REAL phone that works outside China, doesn’t fall apart, and as actually available for purchase.
    Ideally with Android 4.1, micro-SD, 1280×720 (ish) screen, quad core….
    does such a thing exist yet?


    • October 11, 2012

      Haha sorry Simon 😉 The Xiaomi M2 could be what you are looking for but it’s going to be a while before they’ll be stock at hand.

    Hello Andi,

    My inquiries are producing MANY replies with 6 inch devices … BUT THEY ARE ALL FOR LOW RES SCREENS AT THE 800 x XXX LEVEL.

    Are you aware of any REAL offers of 1280 x YYY resolution and how to get to talk to anyone ?

    Cheers …

    • October 11, 2012

      Sorry there aren’t any yet. It’s just a matter of time though.

    TD-SCDMA only works in China. It’s their version of 3G. Hope the version that is Amoi branded is WCDMA. Even in China, I don’t think TD-SCDMA is even that popular.

    • October 11, 2012

      Yep China only it’s China Mobile’s version of 3G and as they are the largest in China I would say its pretty popular 😉 However I’ve never been impressed by them and am Unicom.

        @Andi Is there an alternative for this product, I mean exact spec by spec, minus the TD-SCDMA replacing it with WCDMA. This right here is one of the best due to its price and spec. I would say Amoi built a justified phone (period)!
