Default [Q] Decent chinese phone with custom roms available


I have been lurking around for a while now and still can't find what i am looking for, a decent chinese phone. I find it difficult to find one that comes close to what i am looking for.
  • Quad core MediaTek or Qualcomm
  • 1GB ram
  • Decent screen 4 inch or 5 inch screen IPS or anything else that is good of course no capacitive touch ..
  • Decent battery 1500 + mAh
  • Wifi b/g/n
  • CMOS 8mp+ cam (only a rear cam is needed), no interpolated cam.
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Other sensors are ok, but not needed
  • 3G support for EUR
  • CWM and some custom roms available here on xda for the specific device

The only brand from china that i don't want is Huawei, don't know about any others that are bad imo.

Budget is about 150 euro / 206 USD.
It doesn't have to be a perfect phone, but just one that can replace my current phone without costing over 200 euro / 275 USD.

Thanks if somebody could help me or give me tips.
