Just got the "Black Edition" of the Kingzone K1 TURBO (aka KS1 the big model) with 2GB RAM / 16GB ROM.
I know the white have been out for some weeks now, but not many videos with the black version. So here it is.
I chose to wait to get the black version, as I personally don't really like the white.

thanks s7yler for this thread. I am just in work but I downloaded the videos so I can check on the way home ..
I am expecting the same one soon, but as I am on a "save mode" now, the standard post will take its time
I am upgrading from gingerbread LG optimus one P500, so this will be a big change for me.

thanks to all k1 owners for the info and reviews!
I ordered mine some days ago and now I'll have to play the good ol' waiting game

How do you feel is the sound over 3,5mm audio jack? I dont care too much about the phone speakers, but decent sound quality with earphones would be nice.
I read this phone has a Yamaha YDA165 Audio chip. Also I read Mediatek phones in general often have sound quality issues. Anyone knows more about this?

There are some Mediatek phones with Android 4.4 out there already, is it possible to somehow port roms from these phones?
Or those just fake advertisements like Android 4.3.9?

thanks!

Hello Guys

Anyone have issues with GPS and battery?

The battery drain fast, any app to use to avoid this? juice defender? or other?

GPS i test GPS fix and after this they start, to catch some signal.
I will test in few days again.

Hi there. I did not use GPS for some 2 weeks, so I tried now and the fix was in some 40 seconds in a train doing 120 km/h. So I guess it's not bad.
Battery life is day plus. I'm half day on WiFi the rest on data. But it depends, I don't have any statistics....

Thanks for reply

Did you use the GPs FIX?

On my first try, without any app i walk about 19 km and no signal, then conect to 3G and catch.

I will try later to.

The battery i start to use juice defender guess improve well.
