I like the display on this one. I can't help but feel that this is nothing but a UV-5R in different packaging. Can you confirm?

The Ebay site showed some different chips in comparison, so hardwarewise it is an Upgrade.

Also find that www.radioddity.com is also selling Baofeng GT-3 and they says that GT-3 was designed by sainsonic.
You guys can check the hardware of GT-3 there.

One other thing to add... If this was a "review" there would be some performance "reviews" also. What is good, bad, versus the regular old uv5r and its million other clones that would make us want to buy one?

Just made a comparison with Baofeng UV 5R
for the detailed info of GT-3, you guys can refer to radioddity GT-3
Advantages over Baofeng UV-5R
Radio Frequency IC
GT-3:Radio Frequency IC
UV-5R:RDA1846
Upgrade SQ to enhance the anti-interference ability.
RDA1846S add an new tail tone elimination function, when transmit and receive signal between 50Hz with 55Hz
Improve the receiver AGV switching noise when signal strength changes severe

Frequency-Modulated Receiver Chip
GT-3:RDA5802N
UV-5R:RDA5802E
The RDA5802N has a powerful low-IF digital audio processor, this make it have optimum sound quality with varying reception conditions

Power Amplifier IC
GT-3:UTC TDA2822L
UV-5R:UTC TDA2822F

LED Flashlight
GT-3:Pro-LED (straw-hat LED)
UV-5R:common LED flashlight

feel free to correct me if there is anything wrong

Sounds good, I like the GT-3's appearence.It looks good.
And I have saw ebay already sell this kind of model in US AU UK DE site
But can not sure the differences between GT-3 with UV-5R.
I am confused, can't sure which one is better
