    Wow people just do not hesitate from going to the top shelf with words. Really, the price was ‘amazing’? You were ‘amazed’ that a phone costs 799? Maybe watch some louis c.k. stand up to see what ‘amazing’ really means.

      umm 799 is less than USD99 at most. Since many Chinese Android Phone with similar price only use lesser AOSP with no modification, this phone offers similar AOSP maybe with in-house built or in-bundle software as it mentioned. So it is pretty amazing, although I myself preferred the best English teacher of all time: Games and Fantasy Books such as Lord of the Ring and A Song of Fire and Ice.

    I can’t find this item (or any smartphone) in the english site of 360buy – can you provide a link for international order?

      360Buy would violate the terms of their sales & distribution agreements with manufacturers if they turned around and started selling their devices in other markets. Inside China, they are the #2 online retailer selling every major brand in any category you can think of. Outside China, what you see are the leftovers.
