Whelp. Been researching for a while for a phone to upgrade to from my Note 3 with its extended battery. Was at first looking at a sub-model of Lg g4 that had bands for most all the carriers, but got waylaid with a bombshell in the form of LG's policy being that they do not warranty any unlocked phones at all. Which leaves me with no options for a good, unlocked phone with removable battery. And leaves the MXP as 'it' if I still want SD storage. So before I take the plunge, I suppose I should ask a few important things, to see if this one could be a phone that would satisfy me. How do you root this thing? First thing I did was look here for a root guide, but not seeing any is a very discouraging sight already. Assuming it can be rooted, can it tun Xposed framework? Micro or nano sim? What about nandroid backup/recovery? So, as someone that has been spoiled by measuring battery life in days with external batteries, what is one to do to make the most of a nonremovable battery?
