I'm considering picking up the Mini, but ZTEs notorious dodging of GPL compliance makes me cautious Did they actually refuse to provide source that will build? It's encouraging to see some work being done on it, though. Are the unofficial devs posting their source anywhere? I'm aware that some in the chinese dev community are no more willing to comply with the licensing requirements than the device manufacturers are.
Lack of full international LTE band support aside, this looks like very good phone for the price. If any of you are in the UK, could you tell me whether HSDPA+ is working reliable with 2 SIMs in? I'd like to use a Giffgaff SIM running on GPRS (for free Giffgaff to Giffgaff calls) and a Three SIM on HSDPA for everything else...
I was considering grabbing a second hand Nexus 5, but I'd really like dual SIM and removable SD support. The camera on the z7 appears to be excellent and ZTE have been bigging up the DAC, so I hope that z7 has good output to headphones too. All in all, I'm very tempted.
