  1. Without encryption, if you lose your phone, or it is stolen, someone can access your photos/messages/data.
  2. Iphones encrypted by default. Android newer versions give option to encrypt the memory under privacy/security settings. Otherwise anyone can access your files over usb without the need for a password. https://www.howtogeek.com/141953/how-to-encrypt-your-android-phone-and-why-you-might-want-to/amp/
  3. Is there a way to encrypt the phone with MIUI roms? Can't find the option under settings...
  4. Hi, Not been on the forums for a while, so not sure what the best ROM to have is (I have MIUI 7.3.1.0, Android Version 4.4.2) In light of the wiki-leaks CIA disclosure in the news, it seems all Android versions up to kitkat are vulnerable to hacking (by both government and criminals) Are there any stable ROMs for the 8297w that are at lollipop or marshmallow?
  5. Update - followed dalyer's instructions above, and installed MIUI over Maucat. Everything works fine, even better I can now use a pin on the lock screen :-) Is there a way to get the inbuilt virus scanner definitions to update? (tencent and avl)
  6. Just did what dmrtn above said, and manually installed the latest Playstore APK from XDA forums. This has cured the 'Playstore crashing whilst typing in search bar' bug I had :-) Has anyone managed to fix the pin code lock feature yet? (other than installing a third party one off Playstore - I was looking at Hi Locker, but that wouldn't protect the phone on boot up?)
  7. Hi, been awhile since I've been back on here. Did the Coolpad F1 ever get Lollipop update? I'm still on AOSP Maucat, was wondering if there was a more recent recommended ROM. Thanks.
  8. I think I will try and stick with 4 to 5 inch all the same. The Redmi 3 pro does look like an amazing phone, just a bit too big to be a daily carry. Maybe some of the old Xiaomi models will fit this criteria.
  9. I cancelled the order in the end. One thing I forgot to take into consideration was how big the thing would be. The Coolpad F1 is the limit on how big a 'mobile' device I would carry should be. I don't think I want to go above a 5 inch screen. Even fitting the Coolpad F1 in your jeans trouser pocket is a challenge! I might look at smaller Xiaomi alternative or something. I like the size of the old iphone 4s, but that screen is perhaps too tiny. :o
  10. Ordered it from AliExpress in the end, went for the standard free postage option, so will probably take a month to get here! Fingers crossed they send what I ordered, and no customs fees...
  11. Think I'm going to order one via the GearBest link you said. These phones do look kinda cool! Did you use just the standard 'free' shipping, and did it come with any 'gifts', like phone case or screen protectors? Cheers
  12. Mi account? Do you have to create one of those to use the phone, or can I get away with just my Google Play account? I was looking at how you fit the Micro SD card in it, quite clever it goes in the empty nano sim slot!
  13. Hi dalyer, how much of the 32Gb internal storage is left after the ROM is installed?
  14. I guess unless it's from a Eurpeon warehouse, or the customs is prepaid, then not sure how they can guarantee no customs. Unless the seller reimburses you if you get charged or something.
  15. Aliexpress listing I've been reading some of the reviews online, and the comments people write at the bottom. There does seem to be reports of quite a few bugs at the moment with MIUI 7 on the phone, and that simple things like accessing the phone via a PC requires MIUI software (rather than just appearing as a USB drive) etc. Could be good with a stock android rom I guess...
