GizChina readers can buy the JiaYu G4 for just $236.99


The quad-core JiaYu G4 is currently still our favourite quad-core Mediatek powered phone for 2013, and now GizChina readers can pick this great phone up at a great price.

Here in China JiaYu fans are lucky enough to be able to buy the JiaYu G4 at just 999 Yuan, but pricing for international customers has been much higher since the phone launched and became available.

Thankfully though prices are stabilising and resellers are reporting a steady stock supply meaning the 4.7-inch Android smartphone is relatively easy to get hold of.

The G4 has become one of our favourite phones thanks to the clear 4.7-inch 720p display, powerful 1.2Ghz quad-core MT6589 processor, 1GB RAM and excellent build quality.

    hey andi does xiaomi mi2s have nfc and can u do a full review of jiayu g3s and when will be the full review of zopo c2 platinum be available

    • Xiaomi mi2s has no NFC the mi2a does. No plan to review the G3S. C2 will be next week along with C3, FAEA F1 and Voyo A15

      • roobeyn

        Hi, I have the Voyo a15 at home since one or two weeks ago, cant really remember, if you want you can save both time and money by letting me review it for you, mail me if you are interested.
        I do this as a thank to you for sharing and writing all these news and that being the reason I found this tablet 🙂

        • I already bought one 😉 but happy to publish your review.

  • Mark

    Is the wifi on the G4 really as bad as the user comments on gizchina suggest? Does the g3s suffer from the same problem?

    • Wifi isn’t at all bad for me really how about you @Brian?

      • BrianJackson

        As I stated in my review the wifi is better than my acer laptop. I dont find any problems with the G4 wifi. There are a number of wifi cafes here in Spain and the phone will pick up all of them, including some my MID tablet wont, and from a good distance away in some cases.

    • e3d

      WIFI on G4 is working ok form me.
      I’ve the no OTG version for some time now and never have problems with WIFI.
      Using it for 8H/day.

      Andi i read somewhere that G4(A) advanced version will pack the 6589T and will be available early July, can you confirm this?
      Thank you!

      • Yes this is true

    • Mark

      Thanks, E3d and Andi.

      I was concerned because Andi you said in your G4 review that the wifi is weak. Wifi and web browsing is my main priority.

  • Squeez

    How long will this discount will last? I’m willing to buy it in August/September, will it still be avaible? And is the Swiss Post a good solution to deliver the phone? Thanks.

    • I’ll ask them tomorrow it’s 8pm here so no one will be in their office

      • Squeez

        So how long will it last?

        • Until they have no stock I imagine

  • Tivver

    I was looking into Antelife as my father was very happy with his G3 from them, and their standard price is pretty competitive when you consider the free shipping.

    However, I only want the OTG capable version. As the discount is only offered on the black version, does this mean the white version is from new OTG-enabled stock?

    Secondly, does anyone know if there are hardware differences between the G4 revisions to support OTG or could these early phones support it with a firmware update later?

  • Boris

    Andi , can you tell us to which version does this discount apply ? What is the difference between the earlier ones and new batches – is it just the Panda color or OTG support ?
    Thanks in advance mate.

    • Just the basic one with no OTG. Not sure if its the panda or the all black one though

      • Boris

        Thanks for the info Andi.

    ” Coupon code “GizjiayuG4″ is not valid. ”


    • AndyW

      Works for me.

    • No idea just woke up. I’ll find out today.

      • The discount code only works with the G4 linked to in the article

  • Paulo

    the coupon code is not valid for me too

    • Perhaps they are out of stock? I’ll check with them today

      • Paulo

  • Loukas
  • liljohn

    i wish xiaomi mi3 will have a discount also…

  • foozy

    hi everyone, i wouldnt trust antelife. i had placed an order in early may, and i haven’t received the phones. i was always lied about the shipment. so i had to have the paypal to send my money back, but it took me 6 weeks. i would not buy from antelife anymore.

  • winder

    jiayu just missed the train with G4.
    they could have been market dominant with going live one month earlier….
    i went on the IOcean X7 Elite.

  • Simon

    Winder how do you find the iOcean X7 Elite ?

    • winder

      hopefully, next week i will get the device, then i’ll be happy to share my impression.
      i ordered it because i think it is the current winner by specifications.

  • aaa

    Can someone tell me expiration date of this coupon?

  • Michael

    I ordered one yesterday 4th July with the coupon. Coupon worked fine.
    Order says under processing today let’s see how long it takes to shit. Also paid extra for DHL shipping.

    • Guga

      I can’t find the DHL option… help?

      • Paulo

        I want order one too but I don’t know if Antilife have it in stock…
        I asked Antelife but no answer
        I will follow your shipping and see


    • Michael

      Antelife shipped today 5 days after ordering… This is not great considering they quote ships in 24 hrs on the website.

      • Paulo

        Thx you I am still waiting the shipping

  • Paulo

    just ordered one I hope Antelife has it in stock
