    don't buy any of them
    they aren't branded
    buy something better like samsung galaxy y or htc wildfire S or something
    don't buy unbranded things...(you'll regret it)

    Like Ray said, they are unbranded, so don't get either, they aren't even on Gingerbread!

    Go to your local T-mobile or O2 store and look at the range they have and talk to the sales assistants. Their job is to help people like you find the phone best suited to you.

    I own the Galaxy Y, and I own the LG Optimus Me.
    They are pretty good phones for low-end android phones, nonetheless.

    I had them for about 2 years, and they worked perfectly, and even installed some custom ROMs on them

    Like others said, get something branded. a used galaxy s2 is under $200 and way better than any of those.

    Ignore the naysayers.

    They look like old MTK MTK6516 chipset phones.
    I have had several of these in the past.

    They are fine as a basic phone, sms, emailer. Some apps will run ok on them, but you can forget gaming or anything with fancy screen effects.

    The Dual SIM functionality is nice, but unfortunately it means you're restricted to the built in contacts manager and sms apps, as no third party apps support it.

    If you have the resources to save a few more dollars, then look for one of the MTK6575 based Ice Cream Sandwich models. A popular one is the Galaxy Note clone HaiPai i9220 which can be had for around $200. Smaller screen sizes can be found for even less. I have a HaiPai on its way to me in the post right now. :)

    You either really like necro posting because you're that much of a fanboii or you're a bot.

    Can't decide what I think of you.
