Hey guys. Recently got my Chigon A720 (was pretty cheap, approx 185$) and want to share some information about it to XDA community (lost my old acc so had to make new ).

Specs are really decent for it's price. After I turned this phone was like wtf. Screen is gorgeous, vivid and colorful (someone may think brightness is not really enough, but it's good as it is). The only bad thing about this phone is camera, but for it's price, i don't really care about it. Well they could put at least some good quality 5mp for extra cash By the way, I did unboxing and review for Chigon, hope it will help you guys I will try update this topic with useful information and files Also there is retail forum, where you can find some information about phone and firmwares: http://www.chi-gon.com/forum/forum.php

Interesting phone.

Does GPS work with this phone?

You posted a link for the IMEI recovery tool.... does the phone somehow have problems with the IMEI so one will have to use this tool?

GPS works fine, even better with custom firmware and patch.

As for IMEI tool, it's just for issues that may happen or even not Just shared good and handy tool
