I picked one of these up for $38 as a replacement for my old junk phone that is stuck on 4.4, to use with dodgey .apk files that are linked to by sellers of various things that I dont want to put on my real phone.


Not bothered with the sim card yet, have set it up on a google account but am finding that its constantly losing wifi - gets a ! on the signal bars and then disconnects and reconnects soon after. Cant even get an app downloaded from the play store without trying several times.


Anyone else found any issues with the wifi on these at all? Everything else is fine on the unifi APs here, many silly IOT devices, phones, tablets, laptops etc all sit on it fine for as long as I want. Just this phone giving issues.

I got one of these yesterday as a temp phone. It's been connected to wifi both at home and work with no issues.
Perhaps there is an issue with your unit?

All I have noticed is it's slow... very slow. Lol
