    Do you guys prefer to use the 4.4mm or 2.5mm jack for balanced output? I know sound wise they're identical but I'm curious as to which one you guys like using more

    According to @WianFiiO:

    Dear friend,
    According to Google Play policy, any device that based on Android 7.0 or higher should get GMS certification to use Google Play service. Unfortunately, Google had shut down the GMS certification channel for versions earlier than Android 9.0, which made it impossible for devices running Android 7.0 or 8.0 to use Google Play service.
    It means there is no Play store in M11,but you can download all the free apps on Google play freely from some apps such as APKPure.​

    That's strange, since the Hiby R6 Pro just recently launched with Android 8.0 and has Google Play (International version sold in the US). The Chinese version launched does not. As a matter of fact, the R6 was recently updated from Android 6.0 to Android 8.0 and has Google Play.

    It launched before this policy went into effect.

    Ha. God I hope people don't think this. I make as many mistakes as anyone else. Hero worship in hobbies such as this is not a good thing. You end up with people gathering followers then using their status to attack people or companies they don't like, often with distorted facts, or sometimes blatant lies.

    I'd hope if I'm wrong about something, that somebody will point it out, regardless of any so-called "status" i have.

    Survey says 4.4 :) but I'm using 2.5 because I haven't changed my cables yet.

    This is not correct. I thought the same, but Google will not make the Google Play Store or Play Services available to any new device without Android 8.1 or higher. Since the Exynos 7872 does not support Google 8+, FiiO has no choice but to implement a modified version of Android 7, which means the M11 can’t be Google-certified. It has nothing do to with Chinese firmware. No doubt there’ll be a root-level hack soon enough that allows you to install a hacked version of Google Play, but none of this will be Kosher and will void your M11 warranty. Personally I’ve not needed Play for anything I use with the M11, though I’m sure there are cases where it would be useful. Interestingly the current A&K megabuck daps don’t support Play either.

    Makes zero difference. I only have 2.5mm cables so that’s what I use. I also have the FiiO 2.5mm to 4.4mm adapter cable so I can use 4.4, and do think it’s a better connector, but it’s bulky, so if you do use it I suggest finding one with an angled connector.
