  1. Hi, when you say that it's a dual sim phone, does that mean that it can receive calls from both sims without the need to select just one in the settings?
    Thanks

    1. That is right. Both simcards can be called, no need to switch. BUT!!! If one simcard is busy (let's say you are on the phone, talking with someone on simcard one), the other simcard can't be called at the same time, because this phone only has ONE GSM unit. They do that, because two GSM units would drain the battery twice as fast.

    1. Are you sure you are looking at the same phone on fastcardtech? There are MANY different versions out this.

      The one in my video is definitely a MT6575 phone with a 1GHz CPU.

  3. Will this work on AT&T' USA 3G or only at 2G? Their 3G network runs on 850/1900 mHz.

    2. Hello ColonelZap, how did you get to that screen in your image ?
      Can you get to a similar screen showing GSM frequencies ?
      Thanks

  4. So it's not even 2100MHz or other options are out of the screen. It's a pity that you can't rely on information from website regarding UMTS frequency information. Are you able to check avability of 900MHz frequency which I need in Poland with my provider?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sorry, I can't test that, those are the frequencies that are available in Germany:

  6. They are very quick and not reliable. Now they put your photo of available umts frequencies and again change them in their descriptions even if in comments they confirm that 900MHz is working.
    After this info i quit to buy this item from them. Isn't there any information in chinese users manual about working networks freq.?

    ReplyDelete
  7. That's the problem, the manufacturers in China usually lie through their teeth when it comes to the specs of their devices. The online stores simply believe what they are being told, with thousands of products available, there is NO WAY they can actually check all the specs by themselves :-(

    Just go ahead and do a google search for

    haipai nobel i9220

    and see what kind of specs other stores have about this phone. You'll see that probably every single store will have this phone listed with a 2100 3G network :-(

  8. Fastcardtech is advertising a phone with a 5" inch retina display (IHTC Raider 4G X710E)with a resolution of 540*960. From your experience, is this possible? All the phones I have seen with retina displays have a maximum of 4.3" inches size. I would appreciate your input on this as I am planning to buy one of those.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi Mike :-)

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with the IHTC Raider 4G X710E, I can't tell you if there really are 5" phones out there with a 960x540 pixel resolution?

    That's news to me, so far I've only seen 4.3" phones with that resolution.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree, the information I could find show the IHTC X710E as 4.3". Two list the size as 4.5" which leads me to suspect Fastcardtech took the 4 as an item number rather than part of the specification, shortening to 5". Seems to me they could hold a ruler/micrometer up to the bloody thing to check. ; ^(

      Delete
    2. I already asked their support ... they insist the phone has a 5" retina display ...... which I don't believe it does!

  10. Does anyone know if any of these phones feature "gorilla glass"?
    I'm interested in the durability of these phones.
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  11. They don't use gorilla glass on any of these phones, I bet it would be too expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What do you plan to do with your phone? Maybe this is not a "playground phone", but for example ZP100's glass still pretty solid.

    Anyway its cruel to force gorillas to make glass... ;)

    Do you think it is good for games that are 3d? Is the phone fast? Is the wireless signal ok?

    1. Well, it's not a "high end" dual core (or whatever) device but I think the 1GHz performs very well, even on some 3D games. The wifi signal is o.k., not the strongest I've ever seen but I didn't have any problems with it so far.

  16. Hi,
    I have a question about something that's very important for me. On the website at fastcardtech they say this device has got a 800Mhz GPU. Can you confirm that ColonelZap? Because i can hardly believe this, gaming would be pretty important for me but as far as i know they all just put PowerVR SGX531 GPUs in their phones which has 350Mhz i think. Even a Mali400 GPU has only 300 Mhz and so i doubt that there is any Smartphone GPU with 800 Mhz. I am asking because i found a similar 5.3" phone at china made wholesale which also has Wifi b/g/n. But if the one from fastcardtech really has such a super strong GPU i might rather buy from them.

    Thanks in advance

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi :-)

      Do you know a SURE way how to test the GPU? Let me know and I'll try.

      Delete
    2. Did you run a graphics benchmark like GLBenchmark 2.1.4 on the HDC 9220 and the Star i9220? (or similar benchmark)
      If there was a huge lead considering graphics performance on the HDC's side then it really could have a much better GPU if not it was probably a lie. Plase share your information with me.

      Thank you in advance

      Delete
    3. I ran nenamark 1 on both of them, both scored at about 42 fps, so I think they are identical.

      Delete
    4. Thanks for your help ColonelZap. I guess i'm gonna order the I9220 from china-made-wholesale then because both phones seem to be identical but the one from cmw is cheaper (178.52 dollar) and it also has 4GB ROM and WiFi n. The HDC only has 2GB ROM and WiFi b/g.

      Delete
    5. Hi :-)

      I wouldn't really trust that it has the n-wifi, but of course I don't know that. I also think that the phone I have in my video also has 4GB but I wasn't sure, so to be on the save side I went with the specs that FCT has on their site.

      Delete
    6. Hello ColonelZap,

      it's me again. I'm sorry for bothering you once again!

      You know what, i send china-made-wholesale an email asking for some information about wifi wtc and i also posted a message at fastcardtech asking them about the 800 MHz GPU. The sad thing is fastcardtech didn't even allow my post, i never saw my question appearing there and cmw didnt ever reply to my email...

      Then I used the website customer support at cmw and voila someone talked to me and answered my questions. But when i asked about n-Wifi he just copied the product specs from the website and didn't even check if it was right...

      But anyways if you were to choose, which phone would you recommend me? the one from cmw seems to be a Star phone while the one from fct seems to be an HDC phone. the cmw phone would be 30 bucks cheaper but i also don't trust that its got n-wifi.
      are there other aspects which would make one phone the better choice over the other? like firmware support or quality etc.?

      I mean i neither know HDC nor Star...

      Delete
    7. Hi :-)

      I really can't tell you which phone might be better? Don't get too hung up on these names, neither "Star" or "HDC" are companies that exist, those are purely fictional brands, those are just names made up by Chinese online stores to give their producs a name ;-) We (the outsiders) can never know which factory actually produces these phones, could be 10 different factories, could be just one that makes all these phones?

  19. Hi Colonel,
    I've just bought I9220 plus and sad it didn't come with google play in its ICS rom. I've tried to install it but up to no good, error every time i start downloding.
    Is there any fix for this yet?
    BTW, it there any GB for this I9220plus.
    In my opinion, i think GB will run more smoother than ICS coz from my previous phone (B79 using IHTC Rom) rocks...

      That's basically what I did on quite a few phones where the market is missing. Sometimes you are "lucky" and it's just the vending.app that is missing, sometime a few more google apps needs to be copied to the system/app folder in order to have a working google account :-)

    5. I hope my video gives you an idea how fast it is. Those MT6575 CPU perform nicely but it's definitely not a "high end" dual core (or whatever)phone.

    6. Hmm, will it be able to run high end 3d games that are cpu dependant?
      I know you said it isn't a high end dual core.
      But I am sure that it can run most 2d games like angry birds etc

    4. This model does support 3G at both 850 and 2100Mhz frequencies; thus, support AT&T 3G. However, 3G supports only SIM inserted in SIM Slot 1 only. The Slot 2 of the dual-sim supports only EDGE speed.

    1. Hi :-)

      That sounds very odd, maybe you should try a factory reset? Sorry, no idea why it is not scanning :-(

  50. Very strange! I never heard from anyone having this problem with this phone. Have you tried to turn off the encryption just for testing purposes? Or maybe turn your router off and on again?

    I have no clue why your phones won't find your router unless you are in a flight mode but I'm sure your not.

    ReplyDelete
  51. How can i turn off the encryption?,...kindly let me know how so i can try that,..

    my router is not the problem as other phones connect easily with my router,..i have turned my router off and on several times,..still the wifi on both my i99220 will not scan,..ansd ofcourse i'm not in flight mode,..thanks for your quick response always....i appreciate it

  52. The Haipai included battery label says it is eb625152vu. But on checking, it is not. Anyone knows what is the common battery model for this HaiPai Noble i9220 ?

    I would like to change the battery as the ones included runs out pretty fast. I have a Star B79 and after changing to a Pisen, the battery last easily for 5~7 days vs 1~2 days on the Star B79 supplied battery.

  54. Hi there, I have a question with regard to the DSDS (Dual Sim Dual Stand-by) feature of this phone.

    From what I have understood if I receive, or place, a call using one of the two SIMS, the other one is not accessible. What does exactly this mean?

    For example, does the "free" sim lose contact with its cell? Or is capable to receive a call but not to answer it (rings unanswered)?

    And even more important, if one SIM is used to be connected to Internet, does it make the other SIM unavailable as well? I mean, if I am using an always-on connection for, as an example, chatting, can I still receive calls through the other SIM and still being able to answer them?

    Finally, I suppose the two SIM slots are not symmetrical, I mean one is 2G and the other one is 3G/WCDMA, am I correct?

    THank you in advance for your valuable work.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When one SIM is in use on a call the other one becomes unavailable, as in not connected to the network. It will not ring.

      If you are using data then you can still receive calls through both sims as normal. I would guess that if the SIM you receive the call from is NOT the one with the data connection, then you will loose the data connection while you are on the call. I am not 100% certain about that, though.

  61. There is another 5.3 note clone i would like you to take a look at? It is from FASTCARDTECH.COM called the GT-I9220 note clone. My opinion they are showing you a real note and probably sending something else. Your thoughts would be nice.

  62. I'm sorry fastcardtech has the Star Galaxy Note Plus GT-i9220 MTK6577 2GHz Cpu Dual Core 5.2 inch Android 4.0 8MP Camera. Which is a very nice looking phone. Chinaecarts claims to have The best 1:1 Clone Samsung galaxy Note i9220 Dual core Clone Smart Phone Android 4.0 OS MTK6577 1.2GHz 3G GPS WiFi 5.3 Inch. I know neither of these phone are dual core but I would really like yours or any one elses opinion on these two phones.

    1. Ok thanks but I was asking about both phone because I'm interested in them. But i just read one of your post that says do not buy anything from chinaecart. What are your thoughts on the phone from fastcardtech the Star Galaxy Note Plus GT-i9220 MTK6577 2GHz Cpu Dual Core 5.2 inch Android 4.0 8MP Camera. I only ask cause you have had dealings with them but I have also read bad reviews about FCT. Are they a good trusting seller?

  66. Does anyone have a contact for FIXING my Haipai i9220? I bought it in Hong Kong a few days ago, then the next day came home. I was "fixing" little things, like the GPS wouldn't acquire a satellite and the English dictionary for auto correction was pretty empty. No big deal but ...

    Suddenly yesterday, the camera, which is awesome, just went black. Takes black pictures and the preview is black. Its hard for me to believe that a brand new phone out of the box has a total camera hardware failure within 2 days of purchase.

    Someone online told me to "root" the phone, which I just tried to do here but ... it didnt work. Didnt seem to do anything actually.

    So .. does anyone know of anyone out there that knows how to fix, give advice etc on this phone?

    Thanks so much

    When it dials, the calling screen (red button,...) becomes black after one second and the phone buttons are switched off. Only the speaker and the volume buttons work. Everything goes normally when the call ends. But if the call falls on a voicemail, I have to remove the battery because the phone will continue the call without possibility ending.
