    I was given a new Vivo X5Max handset from China with Vivo Funtouch OS (based on Android 4.4.4) rev 1.12.3, and am wondering if there is a way to install US-based Google Play Store and even Google Chrome. All the current apps are China-based which doesn't allow any Google Play Store.

    I was able to change the language to English for some of the navigation in Setup, but because all the Apps are China-based apps I need US-based browser and apps.

    Is there a way to install a non-Google browser since the phone is blocking it? The current Chinese browser won't even allow me to login into an existing gmail/Google account.

    You will need to root the phone and install a custom ROM. Check at xda developers to see if anything is available
