    Was the Xplay 3S the first ever 2K phone (not just launched, but also available for purchase)?

      Yes, it already launched for sale with initial batch of 1000 phones. Oppo find 7 will be second 2k phone for sale.

      You know any other 2K phones that HAVE shipped? They already shipped 1000, and will be in distribution tomorrow. Considering that Samsung, Sony and HTC all pulled their punches and stuck with 1080p for their 2014 phones, you really need to give Vivo some credit.

    Andi, any way to find out when they’ll ship in Thailand? They’re advertising it here, but nobody knows when it’s coming…

      That’s not the Xplay 3S that is the X3S an octacore Mediatek phone. No idea when it will launch sorry.

        Ugh. They have 2 models with nearly the same name? I guess it could be worse; they could have 2 models with EXACTLY the same name, like Oppo (Find 7).

          g pro 2 and g2 exactly same name
          s4 and s4 mini also looks same name
          one s, one, one x, one max also EXACTLY same name
          but never have problem

          all you have to do is just don’t be stupid

          • March 4, 2014

            Not exactly the same thing, but point taken.

            The only one with exactly the same name for 2 different phones is Oppo Find 7.

              what did you mean? oppo find 7 has 2 different phone with same name?

              if you try telling oppo have 2 different phone with same name because they have different resolution, you still stupid, so by your logic phone with 16gb and 32 storage is different phone? no! it’s called optional!

              and you still didn’t get the point, once again i telling you don’t be stupid

            • March 5, 2014

              I’ve had my fill of your trolling. In addition to you being dead wrong, you have been needlessly insulting.

              I won’t be responding to you again.

              Don’t worry about the troll, I know what you mean. Chinese manufacturers and resellers are renowned for getting specs and/or sending wrong item out. It’s expensive returning items that aren’t as advertised especially if you’re unfortunate enough to get hit with customs/duty.

              If i’m a troller you could counter me with a truth, i’m just fixing the way you think, you whining about its name without realizing what actually happen to it

              if i’m a troller please tell me where is the trolling part?
