I just got this Weimi P8 with a wonderful configuration and features. unfortunately, it doesn't come with a Google Play Store. I installed 1 manually by sending the apk file from another phone but it doesn't come up whenever I start it up. any idea how I can get around this glitch without rooting?

Whenever I attempt the computer way, it shows installed because I already have a Google account. Thanks.

  • You're not allowed to install the Play Store on a phone that doesn't come with it. That's software piracy. Phone manufacturers have to do a lot of compatibility tests and pay money to Open Handset Alliance before their phone is allowed to run Google Play. – Dan Hulme Jun 6 '16 at 10:19

    Tobi, please see our google-apps tag-wiki which explains how to obtain and flash the Google Apps to a device not shipping with them. – Izzy Jun 6 '16 at 10:39
