GPS sensitivity of my Armor is too poor compared with Ulefone Power despite the same chipset MTK6753 has installed.
Low signal level and unstable fixing...What's wrong?

Hi,

I have the same problem.
If the phone stay still it can fix the gps in less than 2 mn but if I move it, the fix is lost (tested with gps test)

The phone is completely useless for google maps, pokemon go, etc...

Have you been able to contact ulefone?

I bought mine on gearbest and received it last week.

I updated the phone via OTA with version GQ3268AH_Ulefone_V1.0.6_20161209

Hope this problem can be solved with an update, don't want to send the phone back.

Hi

I have same problem too.
I contacted support of ulefone.
Their answer is this...

Hello,
As different environment has different signal, please change different direction and position.


I already tried such things over and over.  

And I posted this issue to everbuying review, but they will not publish my post.  

Currently Armor's GPS function is useless.

Thanks for your feedback, I wrote a mail to the support too.

I will contact gearbest to see what they can do on their side.

Hi all,

This morning I managed to keep the gps fix when walking using "locationem2".
I will run more test using a car today, and if it's positive I will explain the procedure here.

official answer from ulefone:

Hello,
Please Use software( gps test ) to try to locate, positioning and then use Google Maps.
Gps test needs to keep the screen lit and do not exit the search star interface.
And then send us video about it.

Have a nice day.

GPS TEST in use, you need to keep the screen open, and secondly, you can GPS TEST settings, select Clear GPS data, and then download the GPS data, the first positioning time will be relatively long, about 5 minutes, positioning again after positioning speed It will soon.
