What's the Mandarin for Caveat Emptor?


something of a hobbyist handset!

Three years ago, I bought a non-name dual sim chinese handset.

yes, once I installed the google services and changed the launcher it was really good. Also had a micro-sd slot. Cost me about 100GBP. came with an extra swappable battery too.

Unfortunately, after 14 months it stopped charging.

I really hope Xiomi do well in the west. we need an alternative to Samsung over here and Sony seem to be dropping the ball - or at least, advertising that they have the best ball!
