What you need to know before importing that exotic Chinese Android phone

My daughter wanted me to buy a OnePlus phone the other day that was going at a bargain discount online. Closer inspection revealed that it was running a Chinese release of the OS and may not have been easy to get the Google Play Store on it at all.

And no you cannot always flash a new ROM either as sometimes bootloaders are locked too. Best advice is to do some careful research first.
