    You did a recovery backup as the first step?

    What does it score on the Antutu benchmark?
    My Moto G scored over 17000. Easily beating an S2 and pretty much equalling an S3.
    For the money it is phenomenal.
    I have owned one of these dual core Chinese phones and the build quality is inferior to the Moto G.
    Also, the finger tracking in a game like Scramble with Friends was horrendous, it simply couldn't keep up.

    Right. Well the next step was getting a case for the phone. Sadly you can't buy one. I found this on Ebay...

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290883209...eName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

    I got the orange one for 99p delivered.. Any way, check it out.

    OK so here's what I did. Step one and two I didn't take photos of, sorry. But basically you need to open up the case and peel off the felt backing. I then used Arctic Citrus TIM clean to remove the sticky residue. Next step was cutting out the camera area BUT only the camera area, not the leather. For this I used a slim diamond coated cutting disc in my rotary tool.

    Not bad..

    Now the phone will lie flat. I then had to mod the side bit here.

    So I could get to the power button. Then it was two small strips of double sided 3M foam to hold it in place, job done. I'll no doubt order myself another one to mod for when this one gets dirty. At 99p it's a steal :)

    Looks like he has been banned according to the status under his username.
    Just get a Moto G and save yourself the hassle.

    I've had two of these phones. First one lasted 5 hours and the hard broke and scrambled the screen. Second one lasted 24 hours before the mic broke. Having use the headphones until the eBay seller gets back to me. Brilliant for the short time they work. Avoid.
