Hi Guys,

is there anyone else here to confirm that this device can be enrolled to intune for company portal?

Also what about Volte, can it be enabled?

Hello Bro
Good to read your message

Is the wondamobile.com trust website to buy?

I was searching and googling but then came to their link of the CEO/managers, it seems to be a fake thing, that's why I'm asking your opinion, please:

1- it is supposed a phone shopping website in HK but the directors are ladies' fashion designers' job titles!!
2- The CEO is David miller and his photo is a photo of a girl!!
3- Directors' names are not HK names, it is a western names!!
4- Our mission, our story...etc, are all non-logic and no sense articles, I translated and it's all no sense!!

Anyone who can see the link below of wondamobiles CEO and board of directors will notice something weird.

Anyone can help? Thanks.

Not sure what this is about but I've used them for years with absolutely no issues. They are a trusted business. The only issues I have had have been FedEx!

Just a quick one, did you get your x fold 3 days after purchase from wonda? My fold 3 literally died yesterday and I need a new phone ASAP. The 2-3 working day processing time and 7-10 delivery time was what stopped me from checking out yesterday. I'm also in the uk.
I feel your issue, but the phone is worth waiting for, just think of a phone that the whole world doesn't have yet, it's a unique unit.

Nice!

What phone did you have before and have you ever used any of the galaxy fold phones?
I am currently having galaxy fold 2 and I am just wondering if I am going to miss important stuff I got used to use with this phone.

From 0 to 10 scale how much satisfied are you with Vivo X fold?
Me 2, trying to convince myself to upgrade my ZF2 to vivo fold, only afraid of the chinese rom software, afraid to have difficulty moving from Samsung to vivo.

Hello Guys. Any one having issues with synced contacts from Google? I recive a message or call its does not show name only number even if it is saved with name.
Check to make sure that contacts in phone is set to display your Google contacts if it still doesn't work try deleting your Google account and add again under settings > account sync.

I transferred to a Vivo X Fold from a Huawei phone doesn't have much issue except for WhatsApp because Huawei doesn't have the function of backup to Google. Apart from the fact that it has some Chinese apps that you may not use but after installing Playstore it works just like any other phone.

Hi All,
Fo those of you which are using galaxy watch 4 and would like to pay with the watch.
You can use samsung pay, it works (gpay is working on the phone but not on the watch)
You have to download samsung pay framework on the phone and launch samsung pay app on the watch.

Yep bought it, thank you everyone for the great tips. Notifications along with work profile are working as intended :)

I got a question though, unfortunately as bought it from second market, I couldnt get the official charger, do you guys know any good alternative charger that I can get? even though I have a 66W charger, I see that its charging very slowly(phone is hot though due to multiple parallel installations).

    Just got my X Fold yesterday in Canada and loving it so far. I have 5G on the videotron network and forced the 5G radio by using the app "ForceLTE" in the Play Store. I previously used this app to enable 5G for my Oppo Find N and it has worked on both phones with China ROM. I change the settings to "NR/LTE/GSM/WCDMA" under set preferred network type. After a few moments I have full 5G signal.

    I also have managed to get all notifications working using the methods described by Greggles on YouTube. I noticed that even though notifications were being delivered, that they would not appear on the lockscreen. I isolated the culprit to be "Smart Notifications" under "Notifications and Status Bar". By turning that thing off, all my notifications started to appear on the lockscreen. I also ensured that "Google Basic Service Management" was turned on under "Accounts and Sync" which seemed to also help with notification issues.

    Lastly, I followed the steps to set up a Vivo account to set a default launcher from a 3rd party app also outlined by Greggles. I have been using Niagara for quite some time and it scaled beautifully for outer screen and inner screen (see photo).

    I can say that I have tried most foldables (Z Fold 1/2/3, Surface Duo 1/2, Oppo Find N), and the X Fold has so far delivered the best experience so far. It was well worth it. Happy to see many others enjoying too!

    I get vibrations when notifications come in, but it dosent light my screen up in lock mode(sleep mode), when im using the phone the notification banners shows. Any way to make my screen light up when a notification comes in?
    There sure is!

    After you get to that setting, select the apps you'd like to wake the screen for when receiving notis.

    Guys, do we have any guide on how to root the phone?
    I found one in Chinese on THIS site and used Google Translate to read it and seems quite straightforward but is it really?
    Also, please don't download anything from this site as I have no idea is it safe or not! I already have adb and fastboot set up on my PC so I should not need anything else than Magisk I guess... Would appreciate it if someone that did it, share their experience.

    These are the instructions (assuming you have BLU):

    1. Download and install DSULoader located at https://github.com/VegaBobo/DSU-Sideloader
    2. Download the following GSI rom to your external storage:
      I highly recommend the BvS version found on the page as other versions have issues. Download the BvS LOS version to your device.
    3. Configure DSULoader to load the GSI rom (this requires extra steps - through ADB but the app provides the exact ADB command to enter).
    4. Once DSULoader is configured, reboot. The rom will never load and it will bootloop for 10 minutes (which is plenty of time to grab the boot.img)
    5. Enter the following commands through ADB while the GSI rom is bootlooping because of the dual screen
      • adb shell
      • su
      • dd if=/dev/block/by-name/boot of=/data/local/tmp/boot.img
      • chown shell.shell /data/local/tmp/boot.img
      • Exit
      • Exit
      • adb pull /data/local/tmp/boot.img
    6. The boot.img will be stored on your computer (rather the location where ADB is stored). You will need to get the boot.img on your device. You can push the file to the download directory or upload it to gdrive and download the boot.img from your gdrive. The next set of instructions can be found https://topjohnwu.github.io/Magisk/install.html or you can read on
    7. Open magisk manager once the boot.img is on your device. Tap install under magisk and patch the boot.img. Do not select patch vbmeta.img in boot.img
    8. Once your boot.img is patched move the patched boot.img back to your machine (preferably in the same directory adb resides)
    9. Connect your device to your computer and run adb boot bootloader
    10. Once in fastboot, execute the following command:
      fastboot flash boot /path/to/magisk_patched.img
    11. Once completed run
      fastboot reboot

      And you are done

    Finally successfully root my X Fold.
    System Version is 15.7, here's my original boot.img without patch, hope this is useful to you guys.

    And this is the 15.7 OTA package link which I intercept by wireshark.

    And is there anyone know how to connect Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 to Vivo X fold?
    Tried for a few hours, but didn't get any solution.

    Hey guys, two days ago I got my X fold delivered. Big thanks to Wonda Mobile for a 3 days delivery from Asia to UK!
    Interestingly enough I am getting notifications on I think everything with dark mode enabled! Have not deleted any of Vivo's apps and I have not disabled anything. The only place I don't see notifications, other than calls and smses is the always on display.
    I'm in London on Smarty (runs on the 3UK network) and have 5G everywhere I had it with my S21 Ultra (it is even better I think) getting more than 700mbs
    I have checked and all UK operators are running their 5G networs on bands supportd by the phone.
    The only major problem I have is the connection to my Tickwatch 3 pro ultra gps. The Wear OS app (from play store) will connect to the watch but not go through the setup proces after selecting my google account. Just spins and nothing... Tried with the Chinese Ware OS app but during setup it tells me that for decices otside of China I should use the one from the play store. Any help on this would be helpful.
    Regarding notifications I just went and enabled everything in app info notifications and permissions sections for the apps I need and also in the single permissions section.
    Ask me for specific things and I might be able to test them for you guys.
