If you have spent any amount of time on GizChina you will have seen that I quite like Xiaomi phones, in fact I bought a Xiaomi Mi2A for my wife just last week, but had I seen the Nuu Nu1 at the time I would probably be coming home with one of them instead.
Nuu are one of those Chinese brands who keep themselves to themselves. No hype, not leaked photos, nothing. The first time you get to hear about their new phones is when they offer them on sale!
So what makes the Nu1 a Xiaomi Mi2A slayer, well the processor is the same 1,7Ghz dual-core Snapdragon unit, there is 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM and room for an SD card! Built-in NFC and 8 mega-pixel rear just like the Mi2A but a larger 4.8-inch 720p display from Casio!
The best bit though is the price. At 1299 Yuan ($211) with headphones and a case the Nuu Nu1 is cheaper than the 1499 Yuan ($244) Xiaomi which doesn’t come with those accessories!
Availability looks to be the major hurdle though, the brand is quite small and their phones seem to be only on sale though their website! Still if you do come by one it might well be worth buying!
