Calling and Audio Issues

Firstly, do you tear off the factory film of the phone? If so, tear off it because you barely cannot hear the sound if the film remains there. Do you wear the earphone but you forget it? If so, please use the earphone or take off the pair to communicate. If the problem continues, try the following:

Charging & GPS Issues

● Some external foreign matters will attach to the charging port, so be careful to check the charging interface firstly and remove the impurity around it.

● Connect to the original charger and then press the power button for about 30 seconds to re-active the battery.

● Try to replace the other charger and the socket to see if it works.

● Otherwise, it might be the charging port or battery faulty, please contact the aftersales for help or go to the nearby repair shop to fix it.

● Firstly, ensure you are in an open area outside. Ideally, there is a clear sky (minimal cloud cover) with good visibility with few obstacles. Using the GPS function inside vehicles or buildings can interfere with the signal clarity and strength.

● When you use the GPS function, try to obtain a signal first while stationary, before using it while in motion.

● If this is the first time you have used your phone's GPS, it can take a little longer to locate a satellite and lock on to the signal, so please be patient.

● Try choosing the high accuracy location mode under "Settings LocationMode - tap on the High accuracy".

● Change to a different map app and see if this improves the GPS signal strength/stability.

● If the GPS is unable to work outdoors, then the GPS module may be faulty. Also, You can check by GPS Plus/Z-DeviceTest to test if it is normal. If it is faulty, please contact the aftersales service for further assistance.
