I've been very happy with the Huawei G300 as my first android phone. I got for around $240. You'd have to switch to vodafone or 2degrees though, and you'd most probably want to add a microsdhc card as inbuilt memory is pretty small.

wow theres some good deals on there at first glance.

Has anyone actually brought one from them?




Ny nephew has purchased from there with no issues.

But as others have said here it is all about what suits you best and there is a element of risk and quality is not as good. But then again what do you expect for a cheap phone.!!

Personally I treat phones like PC's - they are not assets that last - I buy cheap phones and upgrade regularly.

if you want cheap phones that can flick on you should still buy from NZ. for example I bought my u8150 for $130 then sold it 18 months later for $80
