    The problem is with Gmaps V9. The apk link on first page is V8. I'm hoping google fix the issue in a future update too.

    The registration and download 'installer' requirements at the above site are a pain. I've uploaded the rom to http://www.solidfiles.com/d/5d7cc7e94b/AOSP_ChigonTech_4.2.2_Multi_Rom_Coolpad_Great_God_F1_8297W.zip

    yeah it was a thing of beauty. I'm not a fan of bloat but lg made real improvements to the os/gui compared to aosp. Right now it's a brick though.

    Watch out guys!
     
    If anyone bought this phone from the link above:-
     
    It breaks when receiving official LG update. The touch screen doesn't know where I'm pressing. It registers the touch in a completely different place. I think it had a screen from a D800 in it. Official updates dont like that at all.
     
    Edit: Bad news for my 1,000th post :(

    I probably shouldn't keep going on about it as it's off-topic in this forum. It does have usb host though so you can plug a USB drive in with an OTG adaptor

    Could be but when I returned them to tesco (which has very strong lighting in store) they have a 'tech guy' who compared it to the one he had which was a very early 'pure white' version at full brightness. He agreed that mine was duller and less white. Having said that, I'm starting to think it's not such a big issue. When reading ebooks it's actually more comfortable on the eyes.

    If the software was released later then it'll very probably be using the latest internal device tree. I mean why would they use an older version?

    Yes it is, although a lot of companies move excess stock when a new model comes out and sell them as 'refurbs' so as not to undercut the high street and authorised web sellers. That appears to be the case here. Everything was in retail packaging with the original screen protector and sealed accessories etc. It'll be getting official lollipop too which is a bonus.

    Will be selling my Coolpad F1 - Found a bargain :)
    I found a bargain LG G2 (with the highest screen size to body ratio) for £165 @ (link removed) - See post #7
     
    It's just arrived and is perfect. There was no VAT or import duty. 
     
    Will be slightly sorry to see the Coolpad go but to be honest, there's no contest :)

    The third one is pretty much the same. It's either a deliberate decision to use this type of screen or poor production control. Either way it doesn't reflect the majority of review comments.

    I prefer lux. automatic changes based on lux or lumen readings using the light sensor or either camera.

    there are lots of third party utilities designed to format fat32 partitions >32gb. It's outside the official spec but generally works well.

    Glad to hear that it should be brilliant white at full brightness. That confirms the reviews. I'll take it back...again :)
