    Hi,
    so I'm looking for a Dual SIM phone at the very most 300€ which should have android 4.4, a screen between 5" and 5,5" (at least HD), a decent camera and at least quad-core and 1 GB of RAM. (Preferred with LTE and a good camera.)

    The thing I would suit me best would probably be a dual-SIM Nexus 5, but sadly that doesn't exist :(.

    I have looked at:

    - Dual Moto G: worried that it maybe already too old to buy now, that the hardware isn't that good and that the camera is just so-so.

    - Dual HTC Desire 816: would be nice but is just a big stretch in budget.

    - HTC E8: slightly dumber plastic HTC one that isn't yet available but probably also expensive.

    - Wiko Highway: Octa-core, 2GBs of RAM and 13mpx shooter, 5"FHD for 300€. - but probably will never get past android 4.2.2, doesn't have a ROM community and I don't have trust in the brand and it's services

    - LG G2 Mini: Looks a solid phone overall. Hoping the price drops when the G3 is released. And a bigger screen wouldn't be bad.

    Any suggestions and opinions?

    BQ E5 HD.

    2GB RAM, 13Mpx camera, quad core, 4.4 stock, 2.500 battery, 5 HD 720P IPS display, etc.

    No 4G though.

    Sounds good. Do you think the extra 50€ are a good-deal for the octa-core
    and Full-HD version? The biggest downside is the brand themselves I think, I am not sure of how good is their customer service and the mediatek chip also doesn't have my full trust with optimization and software upgrades.

    I tried the 720P one and it was very fast and nice.

    Prices are really good, so if you like the FHD go for it.

    The brand has been around for quite some time, so don't worry too much about that. Problem would be dealing with warranty if you're on another country. Don't know how that works.

    Kata i3

    I can't get Moto G, Moto X, or Nexus 5. Not available in my country and sellers jack up the price for second hand units.

    So Kata i3 is the next best thing at $175. Kata Digital is very low profile. But the design and performance introduced earlier this year is awesome value here locally where a MyPhone Rio cost $113 with similar specs. But for extra $60, I like to take a chance on Kata. Probably offers better value than the Moto G at $200. Dual sim. Quad core. 720p. 1 GB RAM. JB 4.2.2. Near stock Android build. Has the gesture swipes to wake up screen when off similar to OnePlus One. Love the i3 design. Very Xperia-like without the back glass. One of the most attractive phones here in the Philippines under the $200 price range.

    This phone is starting to grow on me. I have seen reviews that say the camera is just so-so but the price makes up for it... Will probably be going with this one. :D Does anyone here have a another opinion on this phone?

    I can't get it in my country :/.
