  • ZTE-U V880 China Unicom - 2.3.5 upgrade

    posted by roumahum on 04/09/2012

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    1. Good build quality - nothing creaks and wobbles, nice surface, good bright screen.
    2. Good pirce for this set of options (Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS) - there is nothing like this phone in the domestic market for same money.
    3. Can be upgraded to Android 2.3.5 if you spend a day to reading forums.

    Cons:

    1. Hard to open rear cover at the first time. I was afraid to break it, so opened it very carefully.
    2. It's hard to use this phone without switch to English or oter native languages. Stock flash contains Chineese/English only and turns on Chineese by default.
    3. No Android Market (or Google Play) installed, so you can use only limited ZTE market applications.

    OtherThoughts:

    Very good phone for this money, despite the difficulty of localisation and updade.

    Bottomline:

    1. To switch language on English you must go to Settings (cogwheel icon on the main screen), then search position whis icon [A...] and click it, then choose top menu and select English.
    2. To flash this phone and upgrade Android from 2.2.2 (in stock) to 2.3.5 I was find this compilation: http://android.modaco.com/topic/350875-romgen2-swedish-snow-rls6-android-235/
