Exclamation [Q] THL W8+ 5inch 1080p 16GB Phone Black Screen

Hi guys,

Sorry, didn't know where to post.

Recently got this phone thlmobilestore.com/thl-w8-android-4-2-mtk6589-quad-core-smart-phone-5-0-inch-1080p-fhd-screen-12mp-back-camera-16g-white.html

Really happy with it.

However, roughly every hour or so it will just give me a black screen. I can hold the power button on the side and the touch buttons either side of the home button light up, but nothing on the screen. It is totally unresponsive on the screen, the only way is to reboot.

Any ideas how to fix? How do i get the latest software for this phone, i have no idea what software is on it already.

Thanks for any help.

For your black screen problem, turn off auto brightness and put it manual at a medium level. If it's too low it will go black. That should solve it
