    I have this phone. I bought it through ebay and had it shipped to Hong Kong — to my sister’s place, then hand-carried it to the Philippines. All I can say is it’s a brilliant phone, especially if you upgrade it to MIUI V.5 custom ROM. My officemates were astounded by its features and most of them thought that it was an iPhone. Haha. ^__^
