    Another What Phone Should I Buy Thread

    Hi all, long time lurker here. Great forum, picked up loads of good advice from other posts over time, but I need some specifics answered so here goes......

    1st if your reading this thanks for taking the time to look. Now onto my dilemma. (Let me know if you have any views / good ideas please)

    The boss (Wife) has told me I can have a new phone for Xmas Wooopeeee.
    Keep in mind the following. Current phone is an Xperia Arc (no s)
    So were talking 1 core, 1Ghz processor, 320mb storage 512 ram.
    Pretty rubbish by todays standards.

    Ive 99% decided to plum for one of the emerging Chinese models as from what I've read they're not totally the pile of plastic rubbish they once were. Value for money is key. (Her indoors + 2 kids arent cheap !!!! )

    Needs:
    Jelly bean or above
    Decent speed (Processor & Ram)
    Sensible storage 16g+ (ability to increase via SD preferred)
    Large screen 5.7 6.0 (Not really after anything outside this range)
    Good camera 12mp+ (I know mp isn't the total factor and aperture / lens quality play a significant part)
    Price <200
    Good GPS, I often use Sat Nav apps
    Im not an intensive gamer, so GPU not massively important, but would appreciate help if you have any good views on this

    My current thoughts
    Quad / Octa core @ 1.5ghz or above
    2G ram. In my experience ram is one of the key factors to a true smooth multitasking device.
    Screen, not entirely sure, obviously capacitive or better, but doubt Ill get better quality in my price range. Resolution, Im thinking 1920x1080, but whats the real benefit over 1280x720? This is often a difference in the phones Im looking at.
    WIFI. I had originally discounted phones that dont have N band, as I have 78meg fibre at home. (Just lucky I live near my local cab). This took a fair few phones Out of scope but on reflection do I really need that? G band will do real world speeds circa 20-25meg and thats plenty fast enough for phone browsing, isnt it? (I dont do much heavy downloading on my phone)

    Ive looked at loads of phone, all seem to be very similar and I have put 2 on my wish list for now which seem to be the pick of the bunch I've seen. Would be great to get some feedback on my views above and the shortlist below. What would you recommend?

    Cheers

    Lee

    Shortlist
    JIAKE V8
    Why Ermmmm its an Octa core, nuff said!
    Honestly... Ticks all my boxes except screen. Its 1280x722

    Orientphone P6
    Quad core Vs the JIAK octa but does have 1920x1080. Only has b/g band wireless, but again refer to my thoughts on wifi above

    If you can get used to the size, I would definitely get the Note 3! It's the best phone on the planet, hands done.
