    1. LOL ;-) I'm even better at it if I'm not stuck behind my camera, trying to keep the phone in focus and in the picture ;-)

      It's tougher than looks :D

      Delete
    3. That's because this phone has a much higher screen resolution.

  2. hallo colonel, danke fuer die review. ich habe mir das teil auch bestellt. gestern lag ein brief der gesellschaft der schnell kuriere in meinem briefkasten, die 25 euro fuer ihre dienste der verzollung und 7 euro lagerkosten anboten - wutendbrannte email meinerseitz mit der aussage, dass ich meine postgeschäfte lieber selber erledige zurück,
    nun meine frage: muss ich mich beim zoll selber melden? was kommt auf mich zu? hab mit ems bestellt, vorher eins per dhl ging einfach durch :(

    1. Hi :-) Keinen Schimmer wie das mit der Selbstverzollung und der GDSK funktioniert :-( Schau mal bei Chinamobiles.org vorbei, dort gibt the Threads zu dem Thema.

  4. Du kommst doch aus Deutschland(?), hattest du Probleme mit dem Zoll oder musstest du nur deine 19% beim Zoll abdrücken ? Vielen dank schon mal im Voraus.

    1. Ganz genau. Die 19% zahle ich immer an DHL-Express.

    1. Hi :-) Of course it has 3G, I tested it, at least over here in Germany it works just fine. Do you have 3G activated in the networks settings? Or maybe your service provider operates on a 3G frequency that the phone doesn't support?

  6. Dear ColonelZap.
    I got stuck with this piece of crap (excuse my language)and the china internet store where I bought it did not send me the manual at all. It's very hard to communicate with them as they are not very chatty.
    The problem appears when I am trying to make a call. As soon as I get connection screen blacks out and handset become unresponsive even though I can continue with my call I can't even hang up until I remove battery.
    I wrote the Internet shop an e-mail and asked for an advice. They responded with telling me to reset a phone which I did two times already without result. Then they advised me to try Als ps calibration. I tried. No result at all again coz I have no idea how to do it. I am not advanced user at all. I am just an ordinary user.
    Thankfully I found your site and hoping to get a good advice from you. Only worried that my English is not good enough to explain you my problem but hope you will understand me.
    Thanks

    1. Hi :-) I don't have the phone here right now, so I can't check. Do you have a proximity sensor calibration in the settings - display settings?

      Delete
    2. And doing a calibration doesn't solve the problem? Sorry, then I don't know :-(

  7. Okay i swapped the Sim card Slot. Having 3g now. But another problem, sometimes the 3g is kinda slow. Do u get that?

  8. hi ColonelZap, habe große probleme mit dem GPS. es werden zwar satteliten gefunden (GPS Test), jedoch wenn ich NAVIGON benutze oder irgend ein anderes navigations programm such er die ganze zeit nach GPS.
    ich habe mal tante google nach dem problem gefragt und habe diese seite gefunden, wo ein mod ( GPS_mod(8NTP)yeddo.zip ) für das gps-fix angeboten wird.

    http://forum.frandroid.com/topic/125466-b92m-star-root-et-rom-custom-fix-gps/

    wollte mal fragen ob du auch probleme mit dem GPS hast und ob du mir sagen kannst wie ich in den RECOVERY-Modus komme. ( mit Home + Volume+) komme ich in den factory modus kann dort aber nichts groß machen. Ich habe auch schon versucht über den "engineerMode" von deiner tollen anleitung über das IMAI -> jedoch konnte ich dort auch nichts groß einstellen. Ich hoffe du kannst mir irgend wie weiter helfen.

    1. Hi :-) GPS hatte bei meinem Phone funktioniert, ein ERSTER Fix unter freiem Himmel kann natürlich dauern, hatte schon Phones, die locker 1,5 Std. dafür brauchten. A-GPS aktivieren kann natürlich helfen.

      Ich hätte auf Power + Vol + für den Recovery Mode getippt? Ich habe das Handy nicht mehr, kann es nicht ausprobieren. Vielleicht postest Du Dein Problem mal bei Chinamobiles.org, dort gibt es sicher User, die auch das Handy haben :-)

  9. Hey, wie sieht es mit dem Display aus Glas oder Plastik?

    1. It had a screen protecotor on it (if I remember right?) but I would guess it's plastic.

  10. Hi Colonel, how i can flash this device?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hello, I guess I have the same, but it has multitouch on my phone only takes two fingers and only has 5 MP, plus the size of internal memory is 210.00, because it's not like the samples?
    It is version 4.0.3 and I do not have GPS.

  12. Hello,

  13. Sorry, no idea :-( There are SO many similar phones out there, it's almost impossible to be sure to find a right firmware.

    1. Thanks for the reply!

      I flashed the device with similar firmwares. but some of them were worked. because when i connect that to the MobileGO in PC. I can see the screen through it. but nothing I can see on the phone screen.

      can you tell me what is the problem on that?

      Your support appreciated!

    6. Thanks :-) Please also google for

      Multiport Flashtool

      With that tool you can somehow change the display drivers, unfortunately I have NO idea how that works :-( But maybe you can find some information about it?

  15. I successfully changed the loudspeaker, but a video on the disassembly of this phone would be much appreciated. Thanks again for all your videos so far.

    1. Congratulations :-) I can't make a disassembly video, I don't have this phone anymore. Also, I don't know ANYTHING about hardware, I would probably kill a phone if I tried to open it ;-)
