  4. So, you can confirm that phone weight is 159gr and no 189 like every site says?

    1. Hi :-) Yes, I can, see the picture obove :-)

  5. Will the ROM update work for the 3gb version and will it have gapps?
    Also, how do we root the S3 3gb?


  6. Hello there Colonel!

    First of all... love your reviews - they are by far on the higher end of the the scale in terms of practical info... so keep up the great work!
    I am trying to decide between the Jiayu S3 and the Meizu M1 Note - both are very similar in terms of specs and price. which one would you choose? what do you think about the fact that Meizu is a much bigger and more supported company? would you be able to review it? or even do a comparison video?

    Thanks a lot!!
