Old and/or cheap? Ironically, A5 "Classic" appears to have the best (glassless) E Ink screen. Yota 2 is/was a solid product in its day. And both can be rooted.

Yes, and the A2 Pro.
Thanks for the links, but I wouldn't call that support just yet - Project Trebble is generic & experimental, and the other has a high likelihood of brickage. Even if you managed to install, some basic functions might not work as expected.

Apparently there are Chinese (gapps-less) and Russian versions of the A6(L). The Russian version has gapps, but no widgets. No confirmation if it works any better than the Chinese attempt to hack Google services into the A5.

Did you try setting the language to Chinese?
That does the trick on some Chinese E Ink devices.

I only use my A5 as a reader, so thought I'd see if it could double up as a power bank for my iPhone...

It works, charging at about half the speed of a regular iPhone wall charger (or 10% of peak fast charging).

The cable type seems fairly rare, I got mine from Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Micro-Usb...53.m2749.l2649

Exclamation iptables/afwall?

Btw, do these Chinese phones - especially the A5 or A6 - have iptables on them? Can someone check?

So you could - once rooted - install Afwall+?

Thanks, for the advice, I set the language the Chinese, and also I made a factory reset on the device and then I set it up with the Chinese language but still I cant update it.
Do you guys have any other advice?

Did you get the original version of the A5 or the "international" version with Google Play?

From what I have read, the "international" version will not receive updates as it is not an official version, but I could be mistaken.

You supposedly bought an A5 with an allegedly international ROM and/or gapps on aliexpress. This is a hacked ROM that simply can't be upgraded.

I went through the same situation and finally resorted to replace the hacked ROM with an official one that allows for normal upgrades.

A short description from where to download and how to replace the hacked ROM with an official one is here:

The process proved to be rather straighforward and painless to me.

Good luck.

Thanks for the help! I did it with TF mode, it was working perfectly, finally I have the original rom on the phone and I could update it, thanks again!

Hi,

I wondered if I could ask which of these hisense e-ink phones is the most sophisticated model that I could use with a tesco mobile sim card to just make phone calls and send text messages in the UK?

I can't use LED backlit screens and my old safe phone has just stopped working, so I think I need to get a move on and buy an i-ink phone.

Ideally I'd like to buy the HiSense A5 Pro CC if it would work with a tesco sim in the UK.

I don't need the google play store.

Thanks!

Jen

You can check the various networks which the A5 Pro CC works on and then check to see if that is compatible with what Tesco has to offer.

Here are a couple of sources showing the different networks the A5 Pro CC works on:

Quote:
Network Type GSM / CDMA / HSPA / LTE / 5G
2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 – SIM 1 & SIM 2
3G Network HSDPA 800 / 850 / 900 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
4G Network LTE band 1(2100), 2(1900)
5G Network No
Network Speed HSPA, LTE-A / 5G
Network GPRS Yes
Network EDGE Yes
SIM Type Micro-SIM
