    so I was looking on and it just listed the HDC Galaxy S4 Orochi with Mediateks octa core processor clocked at 1.7 ghz. says it will come out in late october. So would this make it first or will the Xiaocai come out sooner?

      They normally do that to keep you hooked and most probably that’s the presale date. Although, HDC is one of the quickest manufacturers to release phones with updated new chips.

      I actually think it’s that bloody cai os that doesn’t let me introduce my pincode. sometimes when i’m in an app and i hit the home button i see the pincode entering screen appearing for a fraction of a second but i don’t get a chance to enter my pin. Anyone knows if theres an app or something else i could enter my sims pincode with ?
