    Selam Ben İngilizce bilmiyorum ama çevirinden türkçeyi çevirerek anlayabileceğinizi umuyorum. Ben Türkiye de yaşıyorum. Türkiyede bu telefon yeni satışa sunuldu. Sorum şu. c9 pro türkçe ve gabs olmadığı için custom yükleyerek satıyorlar. Honkong romu yüklesem dillerde türkçe seçenek varmı acaba.
