Interesting looking phone. They're really trying to push their pedigree as a gaming brand.

 

 

 

One concern is the clock speed of the battery - 4000 MHz smile

Aww, it's not a flip phone (and I'm guessing in no way related to the razr... oh I see made by razer the pc peripherals company)

It really resembles the Nextbit Robin, they didn't alter the design that much. Too bad they've gotten rid of the lights on the back, they could've changed that to RGB and market it as a Chroma product.

I just got one shipped from the States.

 

Works well for me.

My only problem so far is that on Skinny Direct, I can only make and receive Calls/Text using "3G Only" option, when I switch to "LTE/3G/2G preferred" or "LTE/3G" options can't do or receive Calls/Text. However, mobile internet works just fine. on all modes ("3G Only","LTE/3G","LTE/3G/2G preferred"). Not sure with other majors (Vodafone, 2Degrees)

Have you tried changing your radio band from United States? Open your dialer and dial *#*#4636#*#* -> Phone information -> Menu (three dots on top-right) -> Select Radio Band. Then chose either Australia if you have it, or Automatic. Reboot and test.

Hi d3xt3r,

 

I tried what you said

I got these options under Select Radio Band:

 

- Europe

 

- United States

 

- Japan

 

- Australia

 

- Australia 2

 

 

 

I tried both Australia & Australia 2 but it still doesn't work, when on "LTE/3G/2G preferred" or "LTE/3G" options.

 

 

 

I also have these options under Set preferred network type: in Phone Info of which I haven't touched yet and currently at: TD-SCDMA-WCDMA

 

- WCDMA preferred

 

- GSM only

 

- WCDMA only

 

- GSM auto (PRL)

 

- CDMA auto (PRL)

 

- CDMA only

 

- EvDo only

 

- Global auto (PRL)

 

- LTE/CDMA auto (PRL)

 

- LTE/UMTS auto (PRL)

 

- LTE/CDMA/UMTS auto (PRL)

 

- LTE only

 

- LTE/WCDMA

 

- TD-SCDMA only

 

- TD-SCDMA/WCDMA

 

- LTE/TD-SCDMA

 

- TD-SDCMA/GSM

 

- TD-SCDMA/UMTS

 

- LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA

 

- LTE/TD-SDCMA/UMTS

 

- TD-SCDMA/CDMA/UMTS

==Update 28/01/2018==

On "LTE/3G","LTE/3G/2G preferred" I can actually do text messages, but still no calls (even if Radio Band is set to either Australia or Australia , when you dial *#*#4636#*#*), so currently on "3G only". This only seems to affect Skinny and Skinny Direct. (I'm on Skinny Direct 3GB plan and I have a spare Skinny SIM)

 

On 2Degrees and Vodafone (I also have spare SIM) Calls/Text on all modes "LTE/3G","LTE/3G/2G preferred" or "3G Only" works w/o issue. I tried it with all Radio Band options as well"USA", "Japan", "Australia" & "Australia 2" and works flawlessly on both 2Degrees and Vodafone.

 

On 2Degrees I had to manually setup APN and MMS first though.
