    Post [ROM] [Final build 1] 14/05 LineageOS 13.0 | Android 6.0.1 | Stable

    Was gonna ask the same question, but you beat me to it. Maybe the Dev will look into it if he gets bored ??? But there is a solution to the 'Spam Ads' now. Check out this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/elephone-s7/help/s7-mini-ads-startup-t3591227

    Post S7 Mini 'Ads' on startup.

    Thanks for the reply nickzeptepi, It looks like its something in the stock rom, people are complaining on the Elephone forums, and not just about the S7 Mini. http://bbs.elephone.hk/thread-13381-1-1.html Have to try and find another rom.

Figured I (or the kids) had installed something stupid =/ Today I did a full factory reset, only to get an 'Ad' on the home screen with in minutes of resetting.

    Post Elephone S7 mini - Terrible battery drain

    Thanks Matt, this worked great. =) 'play services' got installed when I installed Google Music and battery life plummeted. (100% going to bed 80% in the morning) I checked I had the latest version and cleared the cached files (as you suggested) then rebooted. Last night 100% going to bed 96%...

    Post New Firmware Update

    Finally got an update notification on my UK SIM Free 950XL. Although it seems to be for the 01078.00038.16025.390xx firmware. Can't say I've noticed any difference yet.

    Post New Firmware Update

    No, its for all versions 950 and XL, Single and Dual SIM. But, no sign of it on my UK SIM Free 950XL, either. I'm wondering if we'll get it free with our 'Free Display Docks' sometime in April... :)

    Post Possible to unlock b20 800mhz mi4c ?

    ggkameleon, I don't have this phone (yet :( ) But, my Telco uses Band 20 too. What I intend to do is use my sim for phone calls/TXT's and get a 'Pay As You Go' LTE sim for Net access.

    Post Which USB-C cable works with MI4C?

    As I understand it, its only when 'Charging' devices that the cables you are using becomes important. Real Type-C devices are USB 3.0 and can draw a lot more power than USB 2.0 devices.. So their cables need a higher rated resistor to protect your devices. The Mi4C is a USB 2.0 Device with a...

    Post Mi4C from Gearbest

    jonasb_dk. Ulver. I was reading about this last week. IIRC the Mi4C is a USB 2.0 device with a Type-C connector. Whereas real Type-C devices are USB 3.0+. And real Type-C devices can draw a lot more power than USB 2.0, so they need a certain rate of resistor in the cable to protect your devices...

    Post Coming from Android (possibly)

    jasonnt, Welcome to the Windows Phone world... Most of the issues you listed are what we've had to deal with for the last few years on both desktops and phones. And they all pretty much stem from Google refusing to release apps for the Windows Ecosystem. :(
