I've had my Atom phone for a couple of weeks now and my new phone is quite poorly.
The first sign that something was wrong was after installing the latest firmware. Shorty afterwards my phone kept resetting itself every hour or so. Initially I was slightly concerned that something was causing my phone to crash but other than that my new phone was working OK.
The next thing which starting happening was the same error message every two seconds about ‘Google Play services’ not responding. I searched online for various solutions and tried everything I could find such as reboots, clearing the app's cache, force stopping the app, reinstalling the app and nothing appeared to work. One online guide stated a factory reset might fix the fault.
So I've done a factory reset and my phone is now slightly worse off. After the factory reset the home button no longer functions and in the top right corner the word 'unactive' appears at all times and is in red. After restoring from backup everything seems fine for a few hours. Then my phone resets (I guess the same crash it’s always been experiencing). After a reset the phone always fails to boot and enters a screen titled 'Android Recovery' and gives me the options of ‘Try again’ or ‘Factory data reset’. ‘Try again’ always fails and shows a picture of a dead android whereas the ‘Factory data reset’ option does initially work until the phone crashes again or I manually initiate a reset.
Any ideas on how to fix? Or is my phone faulty?
Hello, I'm a front end developer, I have the same issue, Unactive, is still present and home button still doesn't work at all, it's definitely related to an" IMEI fault," this device use mtk Chip, it's a known issue, something went wrong into nvram during update or recovery! , maybe unihertz support can provide both part of the factory recovery image.. We need to fix nvram.
