I am looking for a new Android phone, my main requirements are that it must be Dual sim and also have a good GPS signal.


I have had a couple of chinese phones and the GPS is not good, it may be that they are sub £100 phones. I've tried all the fixes but it still doesn't resolve it, such as, the one I have now, I can be stood still and the GPS will continue to wander around the place some 300 or more meters.


Can anyone recommend one? I don't mind Chinese phones as long as the GPS works.

Hi there @headcoat
My wife has just bought a THL 5000 and its absolutely amazing. Ive personally never heard of THL until my wife bought the device a few weeks ago.
I currently use a Samsung S5, and the THL device is almost as good,and at a quarter of the cost,see here

Looking at the specs of the THL5000 it does not support the 900GHz 3G frequency and so will not work everywhere in the UK.

If you find one let me know  . My requirements are the same . Lumia 430 is good but does not have a message / missed  call  alert repeat  function . Not imprtant to everyone but not all of us walk around with our phone glued to our hand or are glancing at the screen every 10 secs !!  I find that function most useful obvious microsoft don't .
