I get this, too. The metal chassis feels premium. A little bit expensive though.

I too received mine last week.
overall this is a really good phone , nicely built , beautifull full hd screen , very fast.

only negative point , but i don't know if this come from my unit or if its general issue from this phone,
the WIFI and Bluetooth signal are weaker than my other phone ( Samsung Omnia 7 / Sony XPERIA U )

if i stand in my rooter room i got no problem , but if i go in my kitchen , i lose signal while the 2 other phone have very low but some signal still.

And about bluetooth , when i connect my audio headset , and put the phone in my pocket it sometimes disconnect when i turn my head in the opposite direction of my holster .
that never happended with my Omnia7.

Actually i can live w/o bluetooth but the WIFI signal at my job is low in my office as being far from rooter and i get trouble connecting

Can you guys test your WIFI and bluetooth signal ? against other smartphone ?

AFAIK every Mediatek phone with Android 4.2.2 suffers from that issue. Might be better with the upcoming 4.4 ... hopefully.

this phone runs android 4.3.9 but it might be the same . i hope it software or firmware related .
i contacted the shop but i doubt they will do anything as it does works but the signal is just a bit weak IMHO.

and i guess the chip is the same for bluetooth and wifi ... so same problem.


edit: made a picture but can't link it here due to being newbie

It definitely does NOT run on Android 4.3.9, an Android version like that does not exist!

As I said in my video, I am sure it runs on 4.2.x, probably 4.2.2

I also don't have any problems with Wifi at all, with MY setup, this phone has a very powerful wifi reception, a LOT better than most of the other phones I had so far

well i received a message from the shop this morning to send the device back.
guess i'll send it back as it seems my device is faulty.

As ColonelZap wrote - it is definitively Android 4.2.2 and not 4.3.9. There are currently no drivers from Mediatek for Android 4.3.x.

I have two other phones with a Mediatek cpu and both have the same BT issues like the K1, not with a headset (never tried) but with car connections (different cars verified). Establishing a connection is never an issue but any transmission is interrupted. Sometimes earlier sometimes later (1 min upto 5 min.)

But the WLAN connection of my K1 is pretty fine.So maybe your device has a hardware issue in addition.
