So I bought this phone on Aliexpress 3 months ago as a Christmas present for my father. It has always had problems with WIFI (it stopped working after using it for ~5 minutes). Yesterday I tried to get into the Recovery Mode, it didn’t work and to top it all off, it stopped working completely. It doesn’t react to anything I do to it. It doesn’t show the battery monitor when plugged in, it doesn’t turn on at all. All I did before that was pressing a combination I got from some “how to get to the recovery mode” article: vol+, vol- and pwr (which to me already seemed really weird because I did that once a few months ago and as far as I could remember the combination was just one of the volume buttons and the power button).
Has anyone encountered something like this before? Is there some kind of way to reset the phone that I have overlooked? Btw, it’s the Chinese version of the phone.
