    Do any of you have a problem with the "display ambient"? It doesn't work for me. The screen doesn't turn on when I receive notifications

    Disabling gamebooster works too

    This update has so many bugs, most apps crash. Notifications don't come up, they only stay in the notification bar. Bluetooth sometimes doesn't work. When is this all going to be fixed?

    Mine has been mostly solid (and was surprised when miracast worked!!). Bluetooth has been better than ever. Notifications seem fine, and the only crash I have experienced is the chrome webview in some apps (opening a web browser in another app) but a reboot fixed that. The only big issue for me is Game Booster. The anti-aliasing feature is dearly missed.

    Maybe you need a hard reset/factory restore??

    I think this new update need more time to run a full test before users can perform an update

    Can razer even release the factory images for users that will also do a factory reset after installing the image then release a patch for the game booster bug?

    So, things i've noticed after almost a week...
    Bluetooth: seems to be working fine... again. It was initially fixed with an update and then mediocre for almost a year. Zero issues as of updating. Last update caused an issue where if a notification or call came in while connected to my car, the audio would behave the same way after I leave the car. In other words, super low sound until I reboot the phone. This is fixed.

    Stability: mostly fine.... mostly. Every once in a while, opening an app or game is SUPER sluggish. Closing it and trying again seems to be a quick work around.

    Game booster: it doesn't work... at all. You have to disable or reset Game Booster after every reset or games won't load.

    Battery Life: seems to have gone down a bit... Not sure why... nothing has changed in the way I use the phone.

    Casting: Miracast is finally here meaning I can use my TVs native wireless connection.

    Storage: my 128GB card is still detected as 256GB.... official samsung. Not in the mood to hard reset at the moment to see if that'll fix it.

    And then there is my 1 HUGE gripe with android 9.0.... the way the volume slider works. There are times I need to mute everything. The ability to quickly mute ringtones/notifications but nothing else is trash.

    So, Razer, any word when the update with fixed Game Booster will be released?

    so, wait a sec! Is it actually integrated into the system natively? Like e.g. Sony has this integrated into the connections menu in settings? Or do you still need a 3rd party app to use it?
  16. godashram

    Yes, native Miracast support. Tested with my firetv stick and a few Samsung TV's at work. Just go to the cast settings page, hit the ... In the top left and enable wireless display.

    Well nice. Since the RP2 doesnt have this so far, I am guessing it should be around the corner... :D

    oh and another thing:

    Has anyone checked, if maybe, just maybe, they finally enabled better bluetooth audio codecs? aptx/aac/ldac/anything?

    For anyone that is not aware. Atm the RP2 only uses the basic SBC trash codec for any BT device. If you wanna check - enable developer settings, connect to a bluetooth speaker/headset that should be capable of aptx/aac/ldac, play some music and then check your developer settings/options which codec is in use. "bluetooth audio codec" section - half way down the list.
  18. Qualcomm aptX chip is not installed on RP1 and RP2 even if you choose any version of aptx it will go back to SBC codec.

    On following link you can see there isn't any aptx chips on Razer phones:

    Not sure what you are talking about, but I think your understanding of audio codecs is wrong. The snapdragon 845 SoC does support aptx/aptx hd - see here:

    But it still needs to be supported in the System, where Razer comes into play. Also Sony LDAC and aac are both free to use codecs. They only need to be implemented. So Razer could - and hopefully should - be doing this at some point
