    hey whats the best dollar 300-320 phone under 5 inch according to u andi ……

      JiaYu G5 or G4, Xiaomi Mi2A, If you are lucky you might even find a Xiaomi Mi2S or Meizu MX2 at that price too 🙂

    Ascend Mate 2 looks really good. It’s only got 720p, but Snapdragon 400 would struggle with anything higher anyway. If it enters the North American market with a sub-300 US$$ price tag, I may even pick one up 🙂

      asus zenfone 6 is a really good deal for $200…

        Yes, it is indeed a great deal for 200 bucks, but ASUS is not really a (mainland) Chinese company 🙂 And I like the Mate 2 better (assuming it also has a mid-range pricing)

    Get this Andi; It dual boots Windows 8.1 and Andriod it is a Tablet/Netbook, it is a 13.3″ screen with a quad-core Intel i7 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal
    storage. In addition, the detachable keyboard dock houses a whopping 1TB
    of internal memory and various ports, including HDMI, LAN, one USB 3.0,
    and two USB 2.0.

    I’ll defintely get like the 3rd production run of this device

    Meizu MX3, even though its been out for a while now but showing support for US makes me confident to buy the phone now 🙂

    Also Flyme 3.0 OS (Their android skin/launcher the phone runs) is just amazingly beautiful with a cross between the simplicity of IOS and the power of Android!:)
