JiaYu G3 delayed again this time we get a ridiculous excuse!


We’ve heard some great excuses to come from Chinese phone brand JiaYu to explain away the various problems and delays for their JiaYu G3 phone, but the latest reason for delay is an absolute classic!

The last we heard of the JiaYu G3 was that the 2nd round of orders would arrive with customers this Friday (17th October) but low and behold another delay has arisen!

According to this forum post over on the JiaYu forums (Thanks for the tip Simeon) JiaYu are claiming that the protective covers for the G3 have been delayed and the company won’t be sending the phones out without them!

To try to make up for the delay JiaYu say that they will give the case to customers for free once they arrive, but customers are still  expected to wait for the covers to arrive before they even get the chance to see their long overdue dual-core JiaYu G3 phones!

jiayu g3 release date delayed

As you would expect customers patience are wearing a bit thin with some saying that they will happily pay for the accessories if they can just have their phone shipped to them on the date JiaYu had promised!

What do you guys think?Is this a valid excuse from JiaYu or does it seem a bit like bull?

    guys,
    please forget about this one and change your pre orders to something else if possible. there are good alternatives available. when you get this thing at last you dont know what kind of hardware issues there will be.

    • October 15, 2012

      Thing is at the price and specs of the Jiayu there is absolutely no competition.

      Show me one that is on par and I would order it. It’s either a poor battery, bad resolution, 512 MB RAM, Display too small or too big etc.

      Still no contender

      Patience. I also wonder why you’re asking people to forget about this. Seems bizarre you should care.

    Ahahaha After the week of the moon in China, ist now the day of the joke.
    I am sure they still are not ready with those phones, there are so many dates I’ve heard today from diferent online sellers (from these days, trought end of mouth to next year), so i decided : Even I like JY G3 so much I will wait for it till end of the mounth, if there are no stable news or stock I will have to choose alternative (may be THL W3).
    How do you think : when will be the date of release?

    A load of bullsh*t once again. I even read that they can’t produce the phone for the price they are selling it… thats probably why they keep makin up excuses.

    Another tell is that they won’t accept any orders from wholesalers because if they do they actually have to deliver them.

    I canceled my order of the G3 today and moved on to the MEOX1

    Muhaha! I think JiaYu wanted to make a hype around themselves, but they screwed it up big time. Everybody was talking about them in positive context, and it may have multiplied their sellings. The promise of G3 was a sensation, no doubt. A fantastic phone for an unbelievable price. But, I think, G3 is like the Yeti: many talk about it, but nobody has ever seen it. And we won’t. The guys at JiaYu may have miscalculated the price, and now they are finding ridiculous excuses instead of admitting that they will not be able to sell their phone for the promised price. But why not admit? Why can’t they say: “okay, it will cost 230$ instead of 143$, because […]”. It would be a more professional attitude instead of weaving this net of lies, and completely ruining their already bruised renomé.

    There are plenty of alternatives, even if they cost $20-$50 more, shouldn’t be a problem. I’m not going to sit & wait for a phone that won’t release till probably 2013, look for alternatives. I might even go for a Quad Core Meizu, or an older Xiaomi If I can get my hands on one.

    October 15, 2012

    I see good things and bad here.

    The bad thing is, Jiayu probably had issues trying to produce a phone with such good specs at a low price. Doubtless they are probably using second line components somewhere: For example IPS screens rejected by first tier manufacturers like HTC. They probably have supply problems here.

    The good thing is they are desperate to please their customers.

    Soooo glad i change my order to THL W3+.

    same spec, 2000mah vs 2750mah but hey…. this phone wont be out for christmas.

    And it work in North America, Jiayu don’t

      They both work on 2G in USA and they both don’t work on 3G.
      There’s no difference in functionality and specs except for the battery size and the glass.

      • phil
        October 18, 2012

        It should work on 3G in USA if you find a provider who use 850/2100 mhz like I did in Canada (Fido use 850/2100). I will test it next week as I receive my phone.
        I will let you know

    I have been waiting for 6 weeks and still no phone and my supplier at AliExpress does not have a “Silver or White” phone in stock but does have black. I have ordered and paid for the leather case like the one show in the picture above does this mean that I will get my money back for the case, I doubt it. This is the first and last time that I will order a “leading edge” budget phone from an unknown low rate supplier. Next time I will order a recognised brand through a recognised dealer.
    PS I looked for Jiayu G3 on ebay and at least 2 suppliers have black phones in stock, but the price they want is around $260-$280

    I’d recommend the Star B92M as an alternative. It’s available online for $212 at Pandawill and you could also find 5% discount coupons for panda ( which would put it at around $200). Probably available elsewhere too maybe even cheaper.
    The specs are pretty much the same as the G3:
    Screen is 4.7 with 1280 x 720 pixels
    Camera is 12MP
    Batter is only 2000 mAh but I doubt it the G3 really has 2700 mAh, I’ve seen false claims from the Chinese batteries before.

    Well, do you understand chinease good? Because i can’t really get how you get this from source topic. It says “The 2,108 batches G3 has issued part of the rest of us will be finished within the agreed time.” ALso it says that whose who rdered on 10th OCtober will get their phones on FRIDAY 19 instead of 17 (just 2 days later), so in compensation theyll get free accesories.

    • October 15, 2012

      Delayed due to the case and Jiayu will give a free case… Think that’s exactly what I wrote and if you read the comments on that link you will see some of the customers are not happy.

    Last month I decided to buy a Chinese phone from Fastcard…I ordered and paid for ihtc one S, the website stated that they have like 98 of them on stock. Well a week or so later, no stock, after I complained where is my DHL number.They gave me a fake one. Said ok, if it is not on stock send me something else, and stated what I liked for the same amount of money. Guess what, non of them were on stock, I would have to wait some more, so they get them either from the factory, or it was at the factory for upgrading or they gave me yet another fake DHL number. I called in Paypal, to resolve the issue. Did not receive nothing yet, no device no money just fake DHL numbers. So I decided to order from Ali…There was this Ant…something, they had stated that the item is on stock, and that it will ship out in 3 days. Well nothing yet and it has been more than three days, just a prolonged time to ship out the item. I do not know how these guys operate, but I guess all of these shops, are fake. Since, they state one thing and do another.I ordered Jiayu G2 6577 1GB…and I doubt I will ever see it in person. What do you guys recommend, from who to buy, that will have things on stock and ship them out as paid? Kind regards

    • October 15, 2012

      Advise for you, never preorder from China.

      In fact never pre order from anywhere online to be safe.

      • October 15, 2012

        Sorry and to answer your question if you can wait till Jiayu G3 is out and in stock it might be worth it but as of now it’s either that or a quad core device.

        Forget dual core with low spec if you want to enjoy your China phones.

      Hi Carlos, I bought a year ago a cell phone from FCT too. They are kind but i think they are a group perhaps a bit caotic. I mean, I ordered a cell phone, a bluetooth headphone and stickers but they delayed the shipment cause they hadn’t in stock the headphone. Buy it was after three weeks, I cancelled the other items and just ask for the cell phone. They sent it me but when I received it here in South America this has a horrible screen calibration. I have to live with that but reading reviews around the world and even youtuve videos I know that the nice cell phone I bought has that problem. So there wasn’t review videos in the page. I think they shouldn’t sell that model…
      Anyway. So I recommend don’t buy a cell phone till see a video review for customers or reviewers like Andi. So the importance of this page. And to buy from FCT i suggest buy just one item cause at seems the people who answer the questions perhaps don’t communicate with the people that prepare the shipments, and certain items couldn’t be in stock. Besides that the customer service was kind and pay me a good service… but i choose a bad cell phone :S
      About the DHL number I couldn’t say nothing cause I used the free shipment promotion. Hope it can serve u.

    • October 15, 2012

      Hi Carlos sorry to hear that but not surprised as many people have had similar problems with that seller. Hope you can find a reliable seller soon.

      Order from etotalk, they are serious sellers. Second phone I got from them arrived just as I wanted, with everything in it. Custom rom, apps, this and that, all neat. I swapped phones on order and they complied, asked for instructions on nhow to upgrade an mtk chip phone (which isn’t simple) and tech support was spot on, something others don’t have. Fastcardtech also erased some comments on their blog too (phone advertised with hd screen, with NO hd pics, 800×400 lol), I was about to order from them and then I changed my mind because of them being sneaky..

    I’ve been wanting to get this phone for two months now since it was very cheap considering its features. Those two months however have since passed and during that time I’ve saved enough to buy an LG Optimus LTE LU6200. That phone is a bit more expensive than the Jiayu G3 but at least it something I already have in my hand right now.

    I’m glad I didn’t commit to a G3 preorder from online sellers even when I had the urge.

    Still, I’d like to get a G3 someday just to try it out for a while then give it as gift to my younger brother. If it ever comes out before xmas, I might just do it.

    I think Jiayu should be honest and just tell what really is the problem. we customers would understand and appreciate it from them, specially now that their reputation is in the negative zone. we would appreciate it with all the delays if they could installed the jelly bean OS to ease the customers patience… but if this would further delay the phone because of the jelly bean, then we would just accept the ICS OS. we appreciate the free accessory but its the phone that we want.

    Thank you for all your answers. I will give them one more day to provide shipping number, and if nothing happens, I will go to a local shop and buy one LG 4X, at least I know I will get it, and I will not have to wait for some laim excuses. Although I was really looking forward to that G2 6577, as I was thinking of using it as an alternative for a couple of months, and than buying a new phone next year.But one Paypal claim and one not yet canceled order from Aliex… sums up to one decent phone. Since iPhone 5 is way overpriced,and I do not like the policy from Apple any more, although I was using their products, but slavery, suicides, etc…is is just too much.Every one has S3, and S3 mini is just a joke. What were they thinking with such a phone?

    I’ve been wanting to get this phone for two months now since it was very cheap considering its features. Those two months however have since passed and during that time I’ve saved enough to buy an LG Optimus LTE LU6200. That phone is a bit more expensive than the Jiayu G3 but at least it something I already have in my hand right now.

    I’m glad I didn’t commit to a G3 preorder from online sellers even when I had the urge.

    Still, I’d like to get a G3 someday just to try it out for a while then give it as gift to my younger brother. If it ever comes out before xmas, I might just do it.

    Well Jiayu G3 is very promising, but now its testing my patience
    I have searched few other phones which are in same league as Jiayu G3 or may be a bit $20-$40 more than Jiayu G3, but they are excellent phones
    – Amoi N820 has same specs as G3, only diff is screen resolution and price a little more abt $20 more
    – Subar Dream X it has same specs as G3, price diff is abt $15, better 3000 maH battery, diff in screen resolution + 8GB SD card free. This phone is going to come in end of october. It will eat up market for dual core if Jiayu G3 dont keep their promise, this is my perspective
    – Newman N2 is also a good alternative, will be launched tommorow
    Few others i know that have good specs and are below $200 and will be launched soon are as follows
    – Kungfu K3
    – Kai Excursion T1
    – WOHTC Taipower G36
    – Pulid F13
    – Asus Padfone2
    – Umi X1

    I think Jiayu should be honest and just tell what really is the problem. we customers would understand and appreciate it from them, specially now that their reputation is in the negative zone. we would appreciate it with all the delays if they could installed the jelly bean OS to ease the customers patience… but if this would further delay the phone because of the jelly bean, then we would just accept the ICS OS. we appreciate the free accessory but its the phone that we want.

    I opened paypal issue in order to gain time or cancel my order. JY G3 is still my priority because no other phone has the same specs and the same price. I’ll wait a bit more for this legend … but I am already researching other models.

    Hi Andi,

    I really need someone to answer me, how can I contact JiaYu and what is the bets seller at the moment?

    Do you know how I can contact Oppo so I can maybe find out some more about the Find 5?

    Thanks.

    I wanted a Jiayu G3, but after so many delays I decided to get a ThL W3+ from Pandawill. Had delays in shipping, because of unavailability of stocks, but finally received my phone in the Philippines 2 weeks later. It’s a great phone! Had to scour around a Russian forum (using Google Translate) to get the latest ICS 4.0.4 update, as Pandawill doesn’t have very good tech support. But after a week of using the phone I’m very happy with it. Also got an extra battery and screen protector for free from Pandawill. I might still get a G3, though, as it’s specs and looks have really intrigued me. Thank you Andi and gizchina for this great website!
