Woohoo - order mine during AliExpress pre-sales on 21 May ... surely waited long enough here in the USA for getting it shipped & delivered. USPS delivered my Global A5 Pro on July 11th - it came via SIN to LAX, cleared CBP & continued via postal system. The package was securely wrapped with padding, bag within the shipping pouch.

There is a newer OTA update (7-05-2019) that promised some bug fixes & enhanced functions, installed & rebooted just fine. Camera function - not acceptable - unsatisfactory. Otherwise, everything else basically working fine ... as initial impression. Battery life in standby mode and while in use - is draining faster than what a 4,000+ mah battery running stock Android 9 should be, I feel, don't see how it can easily last 2+ days as advertised. AccuBattery installed ... stay tuned for update, battery was fully charged before installing apps & setting it up, will give it time to settle down & do the usual tune-up & tweats, brightness set to no higher than 75%, etc.

There are few, if any, aftermarket case for the A5 Pro - Umidigi included a free one (in black) along with a pre-installed screenguard/protector (not a tempered 9H one) but it is a "magnet" for fingerprints & smudges, etc. 2 amp charger (110-220V US 2 prong plug) with micro-usb cable included.

For reference & comparison, I plan to use my Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite - global (5.7" dual sim) For a 6.3" screen, it is only slightly larger & easy to hold in one hand, non-slippery with the free case. I am mostly interested with its wide range of 4G/LTE bands as advertised and plan to use this for travel use - video & email, basic web browsing - not going to compare its camera to a mid-range/high end smartphone, given its selling price. Stock Android 9 apps installed without issues and runs fine - 4GB memory & 32GB internal storage should work for me, with a 32GB or 64GB micro-SD card for extra storage. Instead of the stock launcher, I switched to Nova Laucher for more flexibility. Developer's option enabled, to be prepared - just in case.

Sim 1 roaming on AT&T at 3G (China Mobile HK prepaid line) and Sim 2 on Google Fi (T-Mobile USA) for 4G LTE data. Speedtest.net results on cellular data seemed a bit slow but acceptable/reasonable on 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz, slower compared Motorola Moto X4 and even the XiaoMi A2 Lite. Without stereo speakers, sound is OK but not great - much improved listening via in-ear buds. Bluetooth works, paired with BT speaker for video playback.

Stay tuned - I will amend/update with more screenshots & user findings as I go along. Feel free to ask questions or comments, and share ... add to. Thanks.

Anyone having problem setting up the virgin mobile sim card?

I added 2 sim cards (rogers (call) + virgin mobile (data) ), then I go to mobile settings and disable the rogers data. If I do so, I'll only see my virgin mobile 3g signal. I can't change it to 4g, can't edit / add apn. Even though I see the 3g signal I can't even use it to connect to the internet.

If I take out the rogers sim and only use the virgin mobile sim (tried both slot), no signal detected.

Mine is on AT&T 3G roaming (no data) in Slot 1, Google Fi = T-Mobile (data only) 4G/LTE in Slot 2, and I can configure mine to use data in Slot 2. Voice call & SMS/text messaging (roaming) seemed fine, that is with both slots active.

Have you checked your Phone Info settings - from Dialer, input *#*#4636#*#* -
Testing >> Phone Information & see
"Set Preferred Network Type:" is it LTE/UMTS auto (PRL) ??
take a look at the various status, anything look ususal ?

Go back out to Settings, look under Network & Internet, then under Mobile network, open the Advanced screen and also check your SIM cards, are the "Preferred Sim" set correctly ? Are the APN settings for Virgin and Rogers correct ? Might want to edit & manually save them.

Whenever I use/move my Fi data sim around, I have to manually configure its APN setting to use data ... on the Nexus, Moto, Samsung, Xiamomi, etc.
