My Short review on this handset.

Pros:
1. Best battery backup. (Without WiFi & 2G net even 2days)
2. Touch is smooth
3. Less booting time
4. 1ghz processor good for gaming
5. Rotation and browsing speed fast.

Cons:
1. No proximity sensor
2. Low RAM. Causes lag in *some* games
3. 3 touch buttons do not have a backlit
4. No secondary cam, primary is 2 mp but not so good quality
5. No update

I played heavy games with 12 MB and 9 MB available RAM, like Resident Evil Bio Hazard, Crusade of destiny, and both worked without a single crash.
While games like angry birds wont start or force stop.

Phone is best at this price range.
Default launcher is boring. Installed Helx Launcher light and fast.

Apps / Games currently Working fine:
1. 1-Click Cleaner
2. 91 Locker
3. Android Assistant
4. App 2 SD Pro
5. BioHazard 4 Mobile Edition
6. Camera 360
7. Crusade of Destiny
8. Crystal Hunter
9. Fast Reboot Pro
10.MiUi File Explorer
11. Go SMS Pro
12. Mobo Player
13. My Backup Pro
14. Mystique Ch.2 & 3 both
15. Office Suite
16. Opera Mini
17. Quickpic
18. Raging Thunder 2
19. Root Explorer.
20. Screen off & Donate
21. SiMi Clock
22. Skyvi
23. Swype
24. Tank Hero
25. Wheres my water
26. Widget Locker
27. Zeam Launcher
28. Zombie Flick
29. Contra

My Mobile isnt ROOTED. Most Apps on SD card. Still 80 MB free. No Crashes or reboots so far.
Above all work flawless. Little lag at times though. But still good playable.
Those which didnt work are not mentioned.

Database Similarities

This handset is similar to the following:

HTC Desire VC T328d
Huawei Ascend C8812
Hisense E910
It has the same processor as the above

CM7 Development fot Hisense E910 Link


We can try to port from these.

I am not a full time developer, this thread is intended to get as much as possible info and data for this handset so we can start custom ROMs and Tweaks.
Also note, the china version of E910 has locked boot loader as per some threads.
