    They specifically sold just 3,000 units as part of their marketing gimmick. They do this even in china.

    Just flashed Android L on my Nexus 5. Looks promising, but it's a work in progress. I decided to reflash with Paranoid Android 4.4.4 stable running Franco Kernel. Will stick to PA for now 'till Fall. Anyone here pre-ordered an Android wear watch? I am tempted to get the LG "Gwatch" but i'm afraid i'd get buyers remorse when the Moto 360 comes out. I'm just afraid the Moto 360 will be too nice and fancy for an everyday watch. The LG/Samsung watches look rugged enough for everyday use.

    I skip MI3 and got myself a HongMi (RedMi) 1s and a Note instead, already can't let go with dual-sims capability, both are very nice phones, SnapDragon and Octa Mediatek, can't decide which to use as daily driver,

    got my hongmi when in Singapore and hongmi note when in India,

    for anyone who plan to get 1, many or most selling cheap are those so call TD-CDMA version which has different upper band, 3g & HSDPA not working outside China, Hongmi 1 and not 1s is Mediatek and not Snapdragon, Note 1 has several variants and 1w is the new 1.7ghz with 2gb ram,

    research first before spent your hard earned money,

    Guys, please recommend a cheap Android phone (2 to 3k range) which will serve as my backup for SMS/calls and a client for my Nexus 5 which has Cerberus installed in it. Thank you!

    @sunil, nope. I think they are from other channel, btw now I even doubt my note is genuine, hehe!

    but its so smooth and nice, the screen is even better than my RedMi, deep black and works perfectly, may be they flash a customized english rom bec afaik note only released in Chinese when I got mine, anyway, its so cheap at about 8000 pesos, you can't even get a good 5.5inches ips in local brand, it looks so nice and everything you want in an Android, no complain even its a clone,

    now my daily driver,
