    A solid improvement to the audio while video recording in this update. Sounds as it should now.

    Well the update has caused me issues,


    When I lock my screen while using Bluetooth earphones the audio cuts off as soon as I put the phone in my pocket.

    It's happening with Spotify and Tunein I think it's proximity sensor related.

    I used it on my P1 XL. I really liked it and it worked just fine. Only the keyboard would throw up the old controls with it. Just be aware some wallpapers might not fit properly with the extra screen height. Oh, and it's a little bit of a faff getting rid of the original controls as you have to copy a command to the phone via ADB or usb uebugging or something. Although it's only a one time thing.

    Yes, works very well. Although i prefer an app called Edge Gestures (does the same thing really)

    Main reason to use is you get more screen now and looks much better. :)

    But fluid is getting a lot of hype on reddit and xda at the moment.

    Decided I was bored of iPhones, I mean I gave it a good couple of years, and I bought a Pixel 3!

    That deal with CPW was still active so I thought I'll chance my arm, £369 paid for the handset and I've contacted O2 today to cancel the SIM Only plan it came with in their 14 day policy.

    Had no issues getting that organised, a confirmation email is getting sent through and I'll simply keep an eye on things for the next few days and make sure it goes through since I'll be expecting the SIM to stop working once processed.

    Nice to be back on a pure Android experience again.

    interested in this too. i'm getting my 2xl replaced so will have a brand new one soon, so feel now would be a good time to buy a 3xl and sell the brand new 2xl
