Rooted and self edit to support Chinese Menu, Good News is its On A A860S running A860K version Firmware With Chinese . Haha!!!!
Anyone wans to share technical rooting stuffs can pm me for more,
Rooting is not recommended . Unless you know what you are doing. Cos there will be bricking of phone if its not handle with care.





Battery Review By Me
Estimated Around 1 Day 3Hours Of Usage With Normal 4G Turn On 24Hrs,
Light Surfying ( Emails, Whatsapp, Facebook ), Playing around 45Min Of Game, Making Around 30 to 45 min calls.





Testing On Game Play

@n_bennyhk Thanks for the battery life update!

@ParkJinYoung Gmarket Korea has got quite a bit of options, if you don't mind having to ship the stuff over.

Just got my black set from Benny after researching for very long time.
All i can say is, never regretted my choice. Was torn between P-02E and this initially. Not until when i see the real thing and comparing side by side with P-02E.

One thing i do like about the desktop charger is that it doubles as a phone stand! there is a flap that u can pull out to rest the phone on. Thumbs up!

Rooting and removing most of the useless Korean apps was a breeze as well. With root i can even remove more Korean bloatware in the phone.

Software update can be done via 3G or WiFi. Not like jap keitais which can only be done using thier local SIM. If all else fail, there link above provided by Benny works too!

A rather expensive (around the RRP of Note 2) phone but definitely worth it considering specs are higher than Note 2.
