JiaYu G5: high-quality at a great price or just too expensive for a JiaYu phone?

We have already commented on the excellent quality of the JiaYu G5, but how does this premium JiaYu phone stack up against the Oppo R819? Full specifications, videos and comparison here!

I only have 2 problems with the new JiaYu G5, 1) It looks to much like an iPhone 5, 2) the high $271 retail price which is being advertised by some international resellers, but could the price be justifiable?

We have tested plenty of JiaYu products over the years, each and everyone of them has proven to be great value for money, and exceptionally well made using high-quality materials. The JiaYu G5 takes this up to a new level, with stainless steel used through-out, a beautifully crafted rear battery hatch, powerful processor and RAM package and excellent 13 mega-pixel Sony camera.

If the same level of manufacture, quality and hardware was seen on phone from Oppo, HTC, Huawei, ZTE or others it would easily fetch close to $400, so at $271 for international buyers is the JiaYu G5 a bargain or just to costly for a JiaYu branded phone?

Personally I believe the G5 is one of a few Chinese Android phone which really needs to be seen in the flesh to be appreciated. Yes, it looks a lot like an iPhone, and Yes it is a little on the thick side, but for a high-quality, high-end phone for less than $300 the G5 is easily the best!
