For non-tech users, expecting out-of-the-box functionality, this phone is useless in those areas mentioned in my initial post. Period.
Custom ROM that came up with your reselled phone is useless in those areas. I believe you have flashed it already to stock ROM.

Could you please share your experience with the phone running on original ROM? Micz, I'm especially interested in your opinion as I'm from Poland too. I'd be glad to take a look on other members' opinions for 'global' questions.
1. Except having English language, can you configure the phone to encourage Polish language and location in Play Store, apps, search results etc.? Few times I had a huge issue with that on current phone.
2. What's the sound power, quality and configurability? In terms of power I talk about large, standard headphones (Audiotechnika ATH-M40x in my case). Lenovo K4 Note is more than enough for them, but Lenovo P780 is pathetic. For configurability I need good, old, proper equalizer with more than 5 bands and without any weird effects that cannot be disabled (like in stock Redmi 3S).
3. Is voice during calls using external speaker loud and clear (in - for example - office)?
4. Is signal quality compared to other phones at least on the same level? Do you loose signal (2G / 3G / calls) where your friends don't?
5. Did you notice any property of this phone that is significantly below general standards? (I believe that this small, barely visible - and probably useless during daytime - led mentioned by reviewers is a fair example of such property)

Hi All, I've ordered my ZUK Z2 through GB and expect delivery in about a week. More than slightly concerned about the ROM that comes with it. Presuming I will end up with the international version; is it really that bad? Do I HAVE to change it to Chinese ROM?
Sort of expecting to try it out first, see if it has been improved and working correctly now....
Or am I being way to optimistic?
Love the idea of the forum.

EDIT: Just had email back from supplier who informs me I have the Chinese ROM, not upgraded to international because I wanted English (which works with this ROM), they only custom ROM for other languages. FINGERS CROSSED :)

Hey, french guy here as well :)
As of speaking, i don't clearly remember whether zui is french translated, but 3.5 was not. If the latest zui ROM (4.0) does'nt include it, and you really need a french device, consider upgrading to a custom ROM. Major ones are french translated (but check anyway). I am currently on bootleggers and have a french translation at my disposal.
