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.

    • July 3, 2013

      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

        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 🙂

        • July 3, 2013

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

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

    • July 3, 2013

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

      • July 4, 2013

        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.

    • July 3, 2013

      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!

      • July 3, 2013

        Yes this is true

    • July 3, 2013

      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.

    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.

    • July 3, 2013

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

      • Squeez
        July 7, 2013

        So how long will it last?

        • July 7, 2013

          Until they have no stock I imagine

  8. 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?

  9. Boris
    July 3, 2013

    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.

    • July 3, 2013

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

      • Boris
        July 4, 2013
