    Looking for cheap backup smartphone, need opinions

    Hey I'm going to Europe this fall and would like to have a smartphone with for GPS and such, but I don't want to take my Galaxy Nexus for fear of losing it/having it get stolen. I found some cheap phones on eBay that run Android, more specifically this is the one I'm looking at getting: 4.0'' Capacitive Android 4 MTK6575 GSM SIM WiFi 3G GPS AT&T T-Mobile Smartphone | eBay

    What I want to know is, does anyone if this phone is even worth getting? From what I can tell it's model number is C2000 (zoom in one of the images), but I don't know the brand. More importantly, can I flash this thing to run stock Jelly Bean and if so, how would I do that?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure if this does you any good, but see C2000 Android 2.3 OS Smart Phone 3G GPS WiFi 4.0 Inch Multi-touch Screen 8.0MP Camera - Wholesale Electronics Amazon has it for I think $219.00 so you can draw your own conclusions.

    Yeah, you won't be happy with some knockoff and why take the chance of something that might malfunction due to shoddy workmanship? In another country you want a phone to be reliable And tbh, I got my nexus for 165 a few weeks ago. They'll probably be even cheaper in the fall if you need a replacement.

    I am totally agree with you. You are 100% good here that In another country you want a phone to be reliable. No doubt they will probably be even cheaper in the fall if you need a replacement.
