very great!...didn't try yet!....Any chance to remove the Chinese app?

also I noticed (only very disappointing point so far about this phone) that videos are recorded at 30fps FHD only with enough light condition (outdoor morning). If indoor (e.g. evening with artificial light) the fps drop to 16-17fps and I suspect it has to do with some exposure compensation! Is there any way to improve this? It would be amazing!....

THX....

Lightbulb GPS Fix for Mediatek Devices

For those with GPS issues, try this fix ->

First of all we need to donwload the “Mobileuncle MTK Tools” from Play Store and switch off the GPS. After that, we can start with the how-to:

Open the app and press “Engineer Mode”:
After that press “Engineer Mode (MTK)”:
Once you are in the Engineer mode for MTK devices, you should go to “Location” and then to “Location Based Services”:
Now, we tap on EPO and check that “Enable EPO” is enabled and then press on “EPO IDLE”:
“EPO IDLE” will change to “EPO DOWNLOADING”, so you will need to wait few minutes to download a file, I suggest that use it with a Wifi connection.
Once EPO DOWNLOADING back again to “EPO IDLE” we can press back and enter into YGPS:
In the YGPS you will need to press on “Hot”, “Full” and “AGPS Restart”:
Now that you are done test your GPS and you should find that it is faster and more precise! If you haven any questions or comments let me know in the
