Hi guys,

Just wondering if there are any differences between so called "global" versions.

I noticed 3 things...
1. My dialer/contact app/message app are from Oppo. The ones I saw on YT look like from Google
2. Latest update A.17 showed on my phone with almost 300 mb to download. For other people here it was only around 160-170MB.
3. Except Google Play I have also App Market which I assume is from Oppo.

Do you have google dialers/messaging apps or from Oppo? What about this AppMarket? Do you have it?

My X3 pro is from Spain:
1. Dialer and message app are from Google
2.It does not have an App Market, nor a Theme Store (although they can be downloaded and installed separately and they work 100%)

Yes i think contacts is the same app (incl. dialer).

Example:

You can look for contacts/dialer app on the apkmirror as well.

How about these files:

For phone (dialler and contacts) https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/oppo/phone/phone-8-13-3-release/
For phone services (do i need this???) https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/oppo/...e/phone-services-8-3-17-android-apk-download/

I did not find anything for contacts, just the phone and oppo calendar!

Thank you for helping out!!!

I have the leather backed Chinese version and there are a few issues that I might not be able to live with. I can't use Google messages as default sms app, at first I was not able to restore all data from google during setup i ended up finding a way to do that. The big issue is my apps passwords are not being auto filled, works fine through the chrome browser but not with apps. I don't even get the option to have the information saved in autofill after I enter the password in apps. I don't think that's a problem in the Global version, correct me if I'm wrong. I love the phone but I think I'm just going to sell it at this point after having it less than a week.

    The contacts apk also includes the dialler? Is there any way to extract them as an attachment and have them posted here.
