    I'm loving my P2, it's so much slicker than my Note 3 and I haven't charged it in 2 days!

    It's currently sitting at 41%, hasn't been charged since about 10am Friday. Software has taken up 38%, hardware 62%

    Has anyone found a decent case a screen protector for theirs?

    The only thing I don't like about it is that the camera is not great but hey ho.

    Does this thing support adopted storage? Tempted to get one for the kid to use without a sim card.

    It does. When you add a new card it asks how you want it to be used, just for media storage or to be able to use it for apps and what not.

    I just received the clear Avidet case and I'm pleasantly surprised. There is very little choice at the moment and the likes of Case Mate and Spigen may never produce a case for something that doesn't sell in the millions like a Galaxy or iPhone.

    Considering this, has the video playback problem been fixed yet?

    This is the only reason I'm holding back as I watch a lot of content on my phone.

    I've not had any issues have been using it to watch a lot of videos.

    On a side note, I just charged it for the first time since 11am on Saturday. I haven't used any power saving features, always had wi-fi or data on, auto screen brightness and had plenty of screen on time including watching a lot of videos.

    Coming from a Samsung Note 3 I'm blown away by all aspects of this phone, including build quality. The only thing that could be vastly improved (for me) would be the camera but then it wouldn't be a sub £200 phone.

    Thinking of getting this phone but I've heard that there's an issue with music being played at a low volume via the headphone jack - causing some interference.

    Has anyone else experiened this?

    That is good to hear I guess I rather take a punt on this than those chinese phones. Hows the warranty?

    i still want to get this phone, that battery, but why cant they make a ~£350 version, same specs other than a mind boggling good camera.
    why are good cameras only on high end phones, don't need fast cpu etc.

    I agree that manfuacturers should make phones with specs like these but with a great camera. Maybe they are worried about canabilizing their high end model sales. I think you are right, most people would prefer to buy a cheaper model with decent specs (like this phone has) and a great camera for a lot less than a flagship.

    that's probably what it is. but i bet they would make more money overall, people like me wouldn't buy a £700 phone regardless, and those who do buy them are unlikely to want to drop the high end cpu/screen etc.

    Managed to pick up a Z Play for £30 more. At least I know that won't have any issues with sound and has a slightly better camera with guaranteed Nougat update that's rolling out now in Brazil and India.

    anyone else got issues with whatsapp notifications not appearing whilst the screen is off? I just opened my phone and got like 10 at once!

    Also, any recommendations for a case? This phone is slippy as hell :p
