Maybe another mic for noise supression, or some audio filter is active.

Possibly....I can't seem to reproduce the problem in sound recorder though. It only seems to affect Skype and video recorder so far. It might also happen in voice calls but haven't tested that out extensively yet.

Has anyone with a Xiaocai or perhaps any Chinese phone found their touchscreen to be a little TOO sensitive? It's really responsive and works well however I've found if it gets some greasy finger prints on it, the touchscreen plays up as if it's being pressed in multiple points. If I clean the screen then it's fine again for a little while.

Right, my THL W100 finally turned up as a replacement for my damaged Cubot GT99.

 

Really impressed with speed and screen so far.

 

Couple of questions, I'm struggling to find much support online to root/install CWM and custom roms - can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

Also, the notification LEDs don't seem to be working - I'm sure I read about a fix somewhere in this thread, possible in the engineering menu (not sure how to access that though) - anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance!

TS7 aka Cubot One aka KVD K7

There are differences in rom (4GB and 8GB models)

 

Don`t be fooled. TS7 is not a thin phone. 

They are all near 9.5mm thick.

 

 

Prices are 90 - 110 pounds, depending of rom inside

Well, from following this thread, I have learnt one thing. Phones and Wives do not mix! :P

 

Also, I would recommend an (sorry for my awful spelling) Xaoimi Red Rice or the Vowney V5. (This is my opinion)

I would have a quick skim through the last few pages, to see what people have said about lots of different phones.

EDIT: When the European version of the Red Rice comes out!

Hello. I have some really important stuff to do. This means I will be away for the forum for at least a month (from 8.5.14). 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help.

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

Why don't you recommend Vowney?

I would also hold on for a phone until after Christmas (  :D ), as then the Octa Core Mediatek SoC devices will be released, which will hopefully also be really cheap!
