    I would just like it if razer would do at least a few updates after major updates to fix bugs, add the most recent security updates and possibly some minor improvements
     
  3. Hi I'm a rp1 user in the UK and I downloaded the update I really wish I hadn't iv had
    • Black screen issues on games the booster reset is only a temp fix every day
    • The volume controls are now horrible
    • I don't get notifications sounds and the screen doesn't come on when I get notifications
    • When I plug into charge it goes into a sort of loop wherewill go back a few seconds to whatever I was doin where it been playing video or typing - sometimes turning the phone off while on charge fixes it
    • The actual brightness overall seems dimmer especially when outside
    To sum up this update has destroyed the few good things about the phone and I have pretty much regretted getting it about 80% of the time I love razer products but I think they should have tried harder before this was released

    • From what I understand, this is the big reason it was pulled. I don't have to reset it everyday, but do have to after every reboot.

      This is an Android 9 thing and a trash decision by google. They are horrible and should have never been implemented.


      Luckily I haven't had this issue

      I thought it was a combination of my bad eyesight and sun brightness where I live...
    I guess there is a bit to fix still. I don't see the volume controls going back to was previous android versions had, because google seems to think that they know what you want now.... Gamebooster needs a fixing, badly. Brightness would be a nice fix.

    nobody knows when. just have to wait. if you dont want - there are custom roms
     
  10. I did some more research on the internet and it seems like to be an licensing issue.

    https://www.androidauthority.com/sony-ldac-codec-790690/ is seems like there is a license cost that needs to be paid to make it work.

    "Google confirmed LDAC is now part of the Android AOSP base code, which means that it’s free for all OEMs to integrate into their smartphones if they wish.

    Third party hardware manufacturers require a LDAC license, and even those looking to use Sony's AOSP code need to pass certification.

    The only detail we’re not sure of if is there’s a licensing cost that OEMs will have to sign up for, as there is with Qualcomm’s aptX which is also supported in Android Oreo’s Bluetooth codec settings."


    And on Reddit:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/razerphone/comments/at5aut/razer_phone_2_aptx_support/

    "Nope. No aptX versions or LDAC. AAC is pretty solid and it’s pretty ubiquitous but disappointed Razer didn’t license aptX or LDAC."

    Same problems with game booster! A
    brightness become weaker,
    can't change anymore Dolby settings from notification area, I guess that's Google's fault. There are Mary UI trashy changes!

    When I connect my Razer Phone 2 (Android Pie 9.0) to a Bluetooth headset, all the sound notifications will go to the head set. And It's not possible to change this so the phone itself doesn't make a sound notification.
    As long as I have the headset in my ear, it's no problem,
    I have missed several texts and notifications due to this and its extremly annoying

    Wrong thread.. this is for the razer phone 1's update.. not 2
     
  14. Any estimate on when it will be available again? I missed the "window of opportunity" and would have loved to get it even with all the issues

    With that many issues, you may want to try a fa tory reset. The only issue most seem to be having is related to gamebooster (breaking games) and reseting settings in gamebooster after any reboot or disabling it seems to fix it for most.

    Nothing yet sadly, monitor reddit just in case. You know just like they say good things are worth waiting for.

  20. Anyone else having call quality issues? Sound on other device being called from R2 is very muffled. Tried factory reset but didnt fix anything. Its worse when in speaker mode as well.
