MORE MINUS POINTS…. as i experienced it!!!

  • After two weeks, I have my battery charger replaced with new one after it got burned while i plug it to the AC outlet and put the USB jack after wards. It seems the USB jack got short circuited into the USB port of the phone.
  • After almost a month, i have the unit itself repaired when the built-in speaker (cellphone tech call it–buzzer) has been damaged. The built-in speaker is used for the TV tuner, FM, audio player and most importantly for the phone’s ringer. I go back to my old phone temporarily while my X1000 is under repair.
  • The earpiece sounds very static when you receive a call. The audio is so thin. So, i have my PLDT-All Call SIM card back to my Sony Ericsson R300 that gives me superior quality sound during phone calls.
  • I can not unlock the phone once the keypad is locked after few minutes. I can only unlock in few seconds after it is locked. I have to remove the battery to reset the unit and open my unit.
  • Now, the touch screen is no longer functioning.
  • During SMS composition, the unit displays error message and i could no longer continue writing. Maybe some of the SIM cards are not supported by the unit. I kept on changing the SIM cards to determine what SIM card is not supported.

More updates as i experienced my first China phone

  1. hi sir jun, do you know any china phone with am radio and other features at affordable price. AM radio is important so I can listen to dyab anywhere I go. Fm radio is not very important to me.


    • MyPhone has a model with an AM tuner… Cherry Mobile has also its AM-FM radio phone–the D30 @ P3,190 only. Other features: Dual Active SIM, Camera, MP3/Video player, memory expandable up to 2GB.


  2. i also have a china phone, different from this one though and really the audio is the pits! when i get calls, the caller always asks me where i am coz it`s like i`m near a construction site or something where there is a loud humming or buzzing sound everytime i speak. and one time the caller laughed so hard as i sounded like alvin the chipmunk when i started to talk…ugghhhh!!! never a china phone again…
