Volla Phone, A startup focused on simplicity and privacy for the average user. It’s a solid mid-range device with eight-core, produced by Gigaset. This device falls nicely in the hands, and it has an outstanding screen/body ratio. On the other hand, it has slight incompatibility with the UT navigation bar. But, overall, it is working very smoothly and relatively responsive.

Did the maintainer say that feature ‘works’ but you know from doing it that
it really doesn’t?
Start by searching the device issue , if you found it, hopefully the porter is on it. 'Subscribe' to the issue in case it get solved.
Couldn't find it?
Uh-oh… Well it is time to let the porter and everyone else know about the fail and send the tech magic back to the workshop for a makeover.
1. Read 'Bug Reporting' section in UBports docs on 'How to report a bug'.
2. Then (this time), head to the device repository and submit it, so the porter knows about it.
