Chinese IPhones (China IPhone)

18 posts in this topic

Having done a 'Google' to see if anyone has written review on the DaPeng T3000 model that I won in a PayPal competition, I did come across a Review for DaPeng T998

.....

 

The Bad

 

The Hideous Startup Theme: The phone's built in speakers are good quality, but every time the phone is powered on, super loud music greets you, and can't be muted.

 

Access To the Internet: WAP is steady, if not spectacular, but speed will definitely annoy with lack of even EDGE. No wifi as well also annoys.

 

God Awful Camera: Forget good camera phone pics, as the resolution is bad, the pictures you take most likely will look very poor even by the stereotypically bad camera phone standards.

 

No Way To Use Java Apps: My opinion is that this phone would be improved if I could at least upload some mobile java programs allowing the T998 to get some new functions and games.

 

The Digital Movie Player: The phone's move player only will play files in 3GP format. If using the video camera, it will record in AVI, however, no downloaded AVI files will seem to play.

 

Final thoughts

 

Just like the title suggests, this phone is at least an ok media player. The MP3 player and stereo mix is where this phone shines, but if you have the time to convert movie files to 3GP, then the video player works quite fine. This phone has all the basic functions you need, and also has enough extras to warrant its price.

 

Price. US$90.04

 

The DaPeng T3000 does not have the Bad Points mentioned in that Review of DaPeng T998

 

]The Bad

 

The Hideous Startup Theme: The phone's built in speakers are good quality, but every time the phone is powered on, super loud music greets you, and can't be muted.

T3000 Startup Theme is not so bad. All the 'sounds' for actions/Alerts, are user selectable, and can have customised sounds also

 

Access To the Internet: WAP is steady, if not spectacular, but speed will definitely annoy with lack of even EDGE. No wifi as well also annoys.

T3000 has WiFi - works well.

 

God Awful Camera: Forget good camera phone pics, as the resolution is bad, the pictures you take most likely will look very poor even by the stereotypically bad camera phone standards.

It is 3 megapixel (not 0.3 as mentioned in some Specs). It is OK and does include Flash, there is built in Front Webcam also.

 

No Way To Use Java Apps: My opinion is that this phone would be improved if I could at least upload some mobile java programs allowing the T998 to get some new functions and games.

T3000 JAVA Support: JAVA 2.0 Many Java Applications included.

Same situation for me on 2 so called china IPhones..They both took a shit in 2 months..The software was so time consuming to do simple tasks also...I learned my lesson now about buying anything China...Its all cosmetic in the beginning..

 

I have owned 3 of those chinese Iphone knock offs. All 3 broke or stopped working. Maybe bad luck on my part. You can now pick up an Iphone here in the west for $125 to $150 ( 3G ). Every one is buying the newer models and trying to get rid of their old ones.

MT6235

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

220px-Star_C6000.jpg

Star C6000 is a mobile phone that uses the MT6235 platform

The MT6235 is a processor used in many Chinese cellular phones. It is a member of the MT62xx series of processors by MediaTek.

 

The MediaTek processor based Chinese cell phones often come with features not common to North American phones such as analog television viewing and recording. While these phones have vastly different builds and configurations, they all run on a common proprietary OS.

 

The MT6235 is a specialized processor design containing both an ARM926EJ-S RISC CPU running at frequencies between 26/52/104 and 208 MHz and a DSP.

 

 

Subsystems

  • Microcontroller Unit (MCU) Subsystem: includes an ARM926EJ-S RISC processor and its accompanying memory management and interrupt handling logics;
  • Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Subsystem: includes a DSP and its accompanying memory, memory controller, and interrupt controller;
  • MCU/DSP Interface: the junction at which the MCU and the DSP exchange hardware and software information;
  • Microcontroller Peripherals: includes all user interface modules and RF control interface modules;
  • Microcontroller Coprocessors: runs computing-intensive processes in place of the Microcontroller;
  • DSP Peripherals: hardware accelerators for GSM/GPRS/EDGE channel codec;
  • Multi-media Subsystem: integrates several advanced accelerators to support multi-media applications;
  • Voice Front End: the data path for converting analog speech to and from digital speech;
  • Audio Front End: the data path for converting stereo audio from an audio source;
  • Baseband Front End: the data path for converting a digital signal to and from an analog signal from the RF modules;
  • Timing Generator: generates the control signals related to the TDMA frame timing; and,
  • Power, Reset and Clock Subsystem: manages the power, reset, and clock distribution inside MT6235.

Wow, lots of info and advice...thanks!

 

So in your opinion, what is the best cell phone (with and without WI-FI capability) for the money in Cebu and where can one purchase it?

 

And how about Cebu 3G networks? Do they have them and which carrier has the fastest Internet Surfing over their network?

 

Also, how do dual SIM cards work? I imagine you have two different phone numbers for incoming calls and the applicable SIM activates and the phone uses that SIM. How about outbound calls? How do you select which SIM you want to use?

 

Thanks, again.

I am happy to share what I discover during my research into things via the Internet. It's really quite amazing just what you can find out with the right searches. I just hope some actually appreciate it, and stop thinking there must be some financial motive/incentive behind me putting in the time /effort behind my Message Posts/Replies. It's quite amazing how some seem to have these set ideas that everything made in China is cheap, low quality rip offs!

 

Well that may have been the case, 10 years ago, but not any more. China are now producing Quality goods, bit it Cars, Motorcycles, or electronic items. It is a massive 'home market' and a growing market segment of Chines with money to sell to. OK so some Chinese Companies are now gearing up towards the Export markets and are teaming up with Western Companies to help improves their Designs, Specifications, Sales and Marketing. You can see examples of this, like Zongshen and it's new Generation 'Cyclone' range, with input from Piaggio of Italy that they make the engines of their 'Zip' Scooter for, and Harley Davidson, who selected Zongshen for their Chinese partner to get Harley Motorcycles on sale to the nuevo riche. Zongshen in return get non-competing technical advice and information, as well as help with design, sales and marketing input from Harley. OK so this new generation id 20% higher than mainstream Chinese products, but still 30% less than Japanese. 50 Years ago they were saying the same about Japan only being able to make Cheap Japanese clones/copies of motorbikes and electronic goods - they don't say that any more, and I bet in another 10 years, wont be saying it aboutChinese goods and products, the same as there is respect for Korean made products, especially the like of Hyundai and Kia?

 

I want to record this research for my own benefit.

 

I normally just 'print' the information I discover, to Adobe Acrobat, and save on my PC. But by copy and pasting to this Forum, I seem to learn the information better and remember it.

 

Perhaps I should not bother with so much time and effort. and just attach the .pdf copy?

 

Anyway back to the reply ...

 

Coming across that information on the MT62xx series of processors by MediaTek explains why there does now seem to be a new Generation of Cellphones coming out of Taiwan/China, with better capabilities, such as WiFi, improved Screen Resolutions, with 'Touch' operation, and now Java Applications and Android type OS even. I would not buy a Nokia Clone or a Blackberry rip off, but instead look for a good quality Chinese phone designed around the latest MediaTek MT6235 platform. Just buy the phone giving the features you are looking for, at a decent price, through a decent supplier, offering good mail-order service and 1 Year Warranty.

China Phone + Google Android

It doesn't need to be touchscreen but the basic specs that we're seeing in the gray market will do: Dual Active SIM, QWERTY keyboard, WiFI, 3G, a TV Tuner, 256MB internal storage for Android App and up to 8GB microSD Card.

 

If they can do that and have Android OS 1.5 in them then still sell it for under Php5,000, now that's gonna be something. They don't even have to put a fake Nokia logo in them to sell these stuff.

 

But then again, because of poor quality control and lack of warranty, it's still risk. Still an Android phone for under Php5k, I'll try it!

 

Update: I heard Torque Mobile is doing a Pinoy Android dual SIM phone? Is that out already?

          Police Officer Test

      How do you tell the difference between an Australian Police Officer, a
      Canadian Police Officer, an American Police Officer and a Scottish police
      officer?
      The answer is  found below.

      You're a policeman, on duty by yourself.
      You are walking on a  deserted street late at night.
      Suddenly, a man armed with a huge knife comes around the corner,  locks
      eyes with you and screaming something that sounds like  obscenities, raises
      the knife and lunges at you.
      You are carrying your truncheon and are an expert in using it.
      However, you have only a split second to react before he reaches you.

      QUESTION:  What do you do?

      ANSWERS:

      Australia:
      Firstly, the Officer must consider the man's human rights.
        1) Does the man look poor and/or oppressed?
        2) Is he newly arrived in  this country and does not yet understand the
      law?
      3) Is this really a  knife or a ceremonial dagger?
      4) Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
      5) Am I dressed provocatively?
      6) Could I  run away?
      7) Could I possibly swing my truncheon and knock the knife  out of his
      hand?
      8) Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong-doings?
      9)  Why am I carrying a truncheon anyway and what kind  of message does
      this send to society?
      10) Does he definitely want to  kill me or would he be content just to wound
      me?
      11) If I were to grab  his knees and hold on, would he still want to stab
      and kill me?
      12) If  I raise my truncheon and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if
      he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself? 
      13) If I hurt him and  lose the subsequent court case, does he have the
      opportunity to sue  me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my
      family home?

      Canada:
      BANG !

      America:
      BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !
      BANG ! BANG  ! '
      Click'...Reload... BANG ! BANG ! BANG !  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !

      it stuck up yer arse!"

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is it just me or what is up with the mall keeping the temp so warm? The wife and I went there to go shopping today and there was no way I wanted to stick around with the temps being so warm  and apparently I was not the only one, the mall was almost devoid of people.

      My wife and I are listing our extra condo studio unit for sale, we bought this extra unit with the intent to move to Cebu full time but because of health issues, we will just continue our yearly stays, thus we do not need this extra unit which was intended for guests and storage, it is in Winland Tower C which is the newer tower of the two existing towers, so nothing fancy but inexpensive for a 30.27 sq meter unit, asking p1,600,000.00 CASH ONLY, that is less than half per sq meter of what most of the newer buildings going up are selling for. We will be in Cebu from February 24th to May 12th, so if anyone is interested and has cash for a quick sale then send me a message. The unit was freshly painted last May during our last stay and we left it empty.     pool area Building entrance Lobby Floor plan Photo taken standing just inside doorway, on the left is the door to the CR, to the right is the kitchen CR Kitchen Mountain view side or building so it is pretty cool in the unit most of the year, very little direct sunlight hits the unit itself. A/C hole and area to place bed etc. Shower and window to the hallway BBQ area and behind that glass is a gym with some equipment and CR's   Winland is far from top of the line but it is a decent place to live, which is close to just about all a person would need, many restaurants, banks, 7-11, coffee shops, laundry, internet cafe, McDo, Burger King, Jollibee, etc, walking distance to Robinson's Mall around 15 minutes, Osmena Circle, Ayala is close too, p60 or less by taxi or a 15 minute walk and all with low monthly and yearly costs. If a person wants top of the line then Winland will not be for them but many westerners live here and seem happy, why, because it cost so much less than many other places to live here and yet it is still very conveniently located.    Property taxes are around p3,000 a year, condo monthly dues are a little over p1,000 a month, so very inexpensive to upkeep.  Smart or Globe LTE pocket wifi works great in that unit if a person wants inexpensive internet for a full time or part time lifestyle like we do. Unit is wired for cable and telephone and has an intercom for the guard in the lobby to call up to the unit.  CASH ONLY, NO TERMS     Any other questions feel free to send me a message.
