  1. Fine Review. I’ve bought it and I’m very satisfied.

    There seem to be some minor bugs:
    It is not possible to resize widgets
    It is also not possible to Change the order of the Screen or to insert a blank Screen in the middle

    For me as a Business user, the performance is fine, also GPS is very good.

  2. Fine, have you tried out the minor bugs?

    After 1 week I also noticed that there is a sometimes a WLAN disconnect. From my Point of view also a minor bug.

    In Addition to the description on the Meiigoo Homepage it has a gyroscope and an ecompass. That is more than I have expected.

    Unfortunately I haven’t find any Forum to discuss about the phone.

  3. Hey, great review. Thanks for the info.

    Can I ask, how is called the gadget that u use for battery testing?
    And the GPS Benchmark app?

    thx again.
