Gizchina News of the week

This is not the first Xiaomi Hongmi clone we have seen, but it is the first which is on sale to customers outside of China. Branded as the OrientPhone M1, the cheap handset gets a dual-core processor, 512mb RAM, dual-sim support, 4.70inch display, and Android 4.2. According to those who have tested the phone, the M1 runs a similar MIUI interface as Xiaomi’s phones too, and with a 2600mAh battery (2 x included) it should offer quite good battery life.

    somehow you forgot in this advertorial post small detail, the resolution is not 720p like in Xiaomi Hongmi, but archaic 480×854 combined together with archaic useless 512MB RAM (which is at least mentioned in post)

    I bought one thanks to Mistertao’s aid. Antutu said it would have a MTK6589 SoC but Mali 400 GPU. That can’t be right, yet the resolution is stuck at 940×560 aka qHD. Some pointed out it’s the new MTK6572 as the most entry-level new SoC Mediatek has released, because that matches the description entirely. So MTK6572 it is, along side with 4GB/1GB, Android 4.2.2., all languages available.

    Still qHD is nothing to rag about, but if you happen to know that up untill this moment I’ve kept using my ZTE Blade II with WVGA resolution it’s already a step up for me. And hey: total cost for me including commission is about €65 roughly $90. So in the end only resolution is /meh like, all other things it’s quite affordable to have such a new gen SoC from Mediatek eventhough it’s the entry level. For those who aren’t heavy users this one is quite sufficient I would say.
