Found 26th Jun 2014
Yes, Moto G blah, blah, blah... 4G, micro sim, blah, blah, blah.

something a little different but the same (and maybe better?)

Dual sim
4.7" screen
HD video
13mp rear cam with flash
2mp front cam WITH FLASH
16gb data storage
2gb ram
android 4.2.2
LTE
free delivery
possibly makes tea (unconfirmed at this time)

as good (minus kitkat) as g in most areas and better cam, unless it's made of chocolate buttons...

okay, tell me i'm wrong in soooo many ways!

ooopsie! amended.... ta.

It's £40 more than a Moto G with 4G.

I'd have to go with the G for the price and the company.

this is dual sim sooo.. has at least one feature the moto doesn't

It's worth the extra £40 over the Moto G just for not being as pig ugly. The Moto G may be many things, but pretty ain't one of them. The better cameras and double the amount of RAM help as well. I'm actually quite tempted by this. Heat from me.

I hadn't even noticed that. That's a brilliant feature as well. Not for me though... I'm not nearly pretty enough. X)

Proper comparison gsmarena.com/com…355 the Moto G has Gorilla glass which is a big plus. All depends what you want but you are pretty much just paying for the camera.

OP has mentioned LTE... But I can't find that info or 4G anywhere in the specs page.. I think this phone is 3G only.



What did I miss .....

Personally speaking, the Gorilla Glass is pants!, as it does nowt when it comes to protecting the Phones Screen from Cracks & Smashes?, so ..... :-(

Lol. :-)

it is still good for non-4G users and could be the cheapest on phones with 2 GB RAM.. also dual sim is a bonus.

It's a good deal, but someone has mentioned on here the CUBOT X6.....it has a genuine 8 core 1.7 Ghz processor, 5" IPS screen, 16GB storage, dual sim & 1GB RAM & ANTUTU benchmark scores only just below the new Galaxy S5 & all for around £130

ACER Liquid E3 DUO Plus ... Blah Blah Blah Blah

dog poo media tek cpu, nuff said

What size of sim does it take ?

lol Moto G rival? it's double the price, cold!

This seems like a fairly good deal to me for a mid-range smartphone. I personally like using dual SIM phones for their flexibility, and it's probably only the Lenovo imports that can compare in terms of dual SIM phones in this price range, unless anyone else knows of any others?

I think I might hold out for a price drop to something like £120 - £140 - the likes of Expansys tend to pick up on Acer phones and may have deals like this closer to the end of 2014 or early 2015. It's just a shame that it doesn't support 4G, for forwards compatibility, but that isn't a real issue for me at this point in time.

The Cubot looks promising - will do some more research...

If you want something bigger there is also the 5.5" Cubot S222 which is also dual sim, IPS OGS display & a very impressive ANTUTU score of over 17000 similar to the MotoG with 16Gb memory & 1Gb RAM for around the same price

hi corred1964, the screen shots show IMEI number, if it is your phone better hide those numbers.
