Features :

Same as the previous reviewed Review :: G14 Dual SIM With 3G :: So i will skip it on this
review xP
Add caption
Design ::
It is the direct clone from the famous Xperia Arc which cost almost triple of this
It has the almost identical size but this is a lil thicker then the Xperia Arc and 28g 
heavier then the Xperia Arc

Thus It will fit any case or accessories out there (Some don't)

From A Glance is looks the exactly the same but with some text changes

It has the same front and end design could be 99% design but due to copyright issue they removed the
Xperia Logo (You may buy one and stick it LOLS)
The curvature of the body are exactly same and some button are remain as Xperia Arc desire
but usb connection has removed and placed to the Micro HDMI output area and added an Antena For TV

Final thoughts
Pros :
-Design Are Remained
-New MTK6573 Processor are fast for daily use
-Dual Sim
-Compatible Accessories such as BA-750 
-3G Supported
-Nice Gingerbread Android

-Less availability
-Screen seem glaring(Need to test in real life)
-Question of Upgrading to Higher OS (ANDROID 4.0?)

Before into real life testing i can't yet decide whether it is a good user end phone
but from every perspective it charm buyer with ability video call that not being 
available for Xperia Arc and with new MTK6573 boasted with SGX531 Gpu
It will defeated any MSM7227-T/MSM7230 anytime :: Well hoping to buy it 
and testing it :: I owned a Xperia Arc and Arc S thus it might be measurement of
benchmark of todays China Clones
