Making the most out of my n7100 generic from China


Jan 5, 2013
I have a generic n7100 that I bought from China. I just got it yesterday and everything is working just fine. The apps I've downloaded works great. I have the operating system jellybean 4.1.1.
I knew this phone wasn't going to be exactly like the galaxy note 2. I knew there wasn't going to be fancy stuff on it and there wouldn't be a stylus.Kind of like that it doesn't have all the stupid apps that I would never use on it like a usually get when you buy an expensive phone. However, I would like to get some more control over the settings menu. Such as power saving settings, And a help menu would be nice too.
I thought that the jellybean 4.1.1 operating system was supposed to have gesture keyboard as well. I do not see that on here. However, I did download the swipe beta program and it seems to be working very well.
I know people are going to give me a bunch of crap for buying a chine Chinese phone. It's working just fine don't have any problems with it. I just want to use the phone and some apps and things like that. Nothing fancy. Just wondering if anyone knows of any apps that will help me better optimize my phone so I have more control over the settings and how it looks.
I saw an app on the android market that was kind of a fake jellybean. It had a bunch of controls over settings and how it looks. I wasn't sure if that something that I can use since I do have a jellybean system or if it's just gonna screw everything up. Any thoughts?
