Well, I think it varies person to person and what they are using their phone for. I am using Mokee RC6 and it is almost working perfect. I want the phone to ask me every time which sim to use for call. I have multiple phone numbers under one contact and I don't want to use same sim for every phone number under one contact.

Furthermore my usage of phone is purely for communication through regular networks and through internet. I also use Internet related tasks too much like audio and video streaming. I don't play games neither I install too many apps. With a more than moderate usage it gives two days on battery with one full charge.

So it depends your personal preference and what you use your phone for. I'm happy with RC6 and waiting for a nice flavour of lollipop.

Similar thoughts to my own. I've tried several but have always gone back to Mokee RC6. Overall it does & has everything I need based on how I use my phone. The Z7 mini is an awesome phone regardless of which rom one may be using

There is also CM11, I'm using it, it should be like Mokee but missing some personalization and more stable.
That's what I read, I can't compare because I didn't try Mokee.
So far the only problem I noticed is that I didn't find a way to merge contacts like on my old phone, but I didn't use this phone much yet.

I use the app "dualsim selector" with mokee RC4. This does exactly what You want.
RC6 works great for me, expect the not working BTconnection in my Car. Therefore back to RC4

HAPPY CHRISTMAS

which camera app work in CM12

Have you tried the FIUI rom yet? I notice you've gone back to 1.76. Does that mean the FIUI has too many bugs as well? I've tried a few different roms & keep returning to Mokee RC6 but I am interested in this if anyone else has more information?
bro

can you tell me which camera app you used that worked well because i sorted all other bugs .

---------- Post added at 06:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:29 PM ----------

I tried once again to set CM 12 .
- I installed another camera apk. ; after a wipe ( cache+dalvik ) it works well.
- Bad news came from phone + data parts . Even first time all G's can be set properly after few calls the settings vanished and the networks has to be set again . And again . After every reboot a message ( something as " instable system " ) is shown but it can be ignored ( I'm feel luckily ) .
Back to stock 1.76.
If you didn't notice there is a new FIUI ( 20.12) available by DavidKing . It's multilanguage ( a good translation) and stable. It can be found on YDSS and Anji .
sorry for reposting but bro can you tell me which camera app worked in CM12 because i sorted all other little bugs of CM12 .
regards

Stock ROM feedback - UK

I have tried stock ROMs v 1.42, 1.62, and 1.72. Of the three, v 1.42 is the only one where I could get a 4g LTE connection going. Here is a quick summary:

v 1.42: 4g LTE OK, 802.11ac (5GHz) wireless good connection range, on waking the phone the wireless ocassionally fails to automatically reconnect

v 1.62: No 4g LTE, 802.11ac (5GHz) wireless connection is flaky after about 7-8 metres, on waking the phone the wireless mostly fails to automatically reconnect.

v 1.72: No 4g LTE, 802.11ac (5GHz) wireless connection is poor (base station not detected at 7-8 metres), on waking the phone the wireless on occassion fails to reconnect.

In summary, I have not tried v 1.76, but for the stock ROMs v 1.42 seems the way to go because this is the only one that appears to support 4g LTE and good wireless connections.

Best

I thought it doesn't support 5g 802.11act, I'm using 1.72 baseband plus cm11, never saw my ac router.

BTW, 4G LTE (with China mobile TDD network) works fine.

Maybe you can try the new 1.76

Hi, with v 1.42, I can see the (a/n/ac) router and on the phone, and the link speed is listed as 433Mbps. I will probably try v 1.76 at some point - but my guess is that whatever bug is killing off the 4g LTE in the UK (LTE-FDD) will still be present. Still the phone is great and I am glad that I have 4g with v 1.42.

Cheers.

I think most stock roms after 1.42 you cant set 4g within the normal network settings. I had to use the hidden menu by, *#*#4636#*#* in the dialler and then set network mode to LTE/WCDMA. 4G then worked fine for me, I'm 3 UK. This also applied to 1.76 I think.

Hi guys

I really like cm11 for our z7 mini but it was annoying me that gaming and benchmark performance was inferior to the stock roms. For instance quadrant on stock i scored around 17000 compared to 8000 on cm11. I couldnt figure out why there was such a difference in performance. After a little digging i came across some posts that suggested the dalvik run time may not be optimised properly in the cm11/mokee roms. I tried flashing some of the dalviks in the first post here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=56038135&postcount=2918

I discovered the only working one is the oneplusone dalvik, all the others the phone will not boot. It has boosted my quadrant score to around 18000. Antutu is around 34000. Games all seem to run perfectly smooth as well now, tried real racing 3 and goat sim.

Nice find about the Dalvik, its true stock beats CM/Mokee on that. Will try and see if it helps.
Actually waiting for an update of Mokee so I can switch back again, I like it more then the CM rom.
