Just got the Takee 1 today and want to share my full unboxing & first impressions about this phone.
This is a new cheaper version of the last year released Takee 1. This version comes without any earphones and a more discreet packaging. For me it is okay, as the phone and hardware is the same, but the price is so much better.

This version includes working Google Play Store out of the box! but it was missing Holo Space and 3D Films/Games etc. but I was able to install these things afterwards, so everything is fine! I believe it is called an EU version as the phone didn't include chinese apps and the ROM is pretty stock!

The original introduction price of this phone was about 6-700 USD last year, but this one here is like more than 5 times cheaper! For that price it is worth it IMO, because the hardware & build quality is very good. Only on the software side it is still stuck with JB and there will likely not be any Lollipop in the near future. But I actually did get one OTA update on the phone from 10 septebmer 2015 so they do still update it.

Unboxing & First look at the Takee 1 the world’s first 3D holographic smartphone that uses 3D display technology without the need for glasses

PS. I know I by mistake say that it comes with KK but it is in fact JB.

Hi and good day to you.
Regarding this takee 1,
1. How good is the 3D ?
2. Is the 3D dept adjustable ?
3. Is the effect worth it to actually purchase the phone?
4. Can the entire phone function in 3D such as normal home screen shortcut icons and software or just games and videos only?

Thanking you in advance,
Reff

Only if someone makes it? and usually that only happens on phones with big community support, and currently only very few people have this phone, so I don't expect anything.

1. It is a bit similar to 3D on a 3D TV I would say, hard to say how good it is, what do you compare with???
2. No, that is calibrated on the phone from the manufacture
3. That's up to you, I can't tell what you think. For extreme 3D lovers it might be, for normal users maybe not
4. Only pictures and videos and special apps made for it

Don't flash the ROMs from needrom, the 1S ROM is not compatible! and the other one is a VERY old Beta ROM, not usefull at all. Also you might loose the 3D effect if you flash another ROM, as the phone then needs to be calibrated again to show the 3D effect, and only Estar can do that then. As far as I know there is no KitKat ROM out.

If the look is different in videos you have seen, it is just using another launcher, but the ROM is still just based on 4.2 - I think the Chinese version from 2014 had another launcher, but that version did also miss the Play Store, so not recommended.
