    Thought I'd start an informal thread where we can exchange notes on when we'll get the next update patch. We were told:

    Late August - nope
    Early September - nope

    So I guess mid September is the next ETA.

    I have been very hopeful and patient but it is wearing thin, as this hopefully will address the last issue I really have with the phone its Bluetooth. other than the BT I have been very satisfied so far. its been 6 months since MR1 hasn't it? like march sometime?

    I guess it seems longer when something simple that should work just doesn't.

    And Razer is Project Treble compatible. The dev team has less of a haul to update the OS.

    I just installed this on my phone.. Doesn't say a hell of alot about what these fixes are, but I do notice my brightness seems higher. Haven't tried it outside yet as it's dark here, but it definitely seems brighter when I crank it to max.. Id sure like to hear from razer what was actually fixed or improved, though it does say July security fixes

    Camera seems a bit crisper, but more testing needed.

    Now the good part? Bluetooth automatically connected to my car!

    Update : for me at least, low light seems better. I pic i took yesterday was washed out. This looks etter than any low light pic I've taken ever with this phone.

  11. You're right! Low light photos are brighter. This should make photos taken in overcast much better.

    It still misreads my sd card size, but percentage seems right
     
  14. Do you have a Class 10 SD Card? Other classes have a problem in some phones.

    I do. It was fine until updating to 8.1. Im not too worried though.

    I can attest, screen brightness higher on same same slider setting after update. Device faster on 90 mhz and Play Store app updates are nutty fast. Screenshot_20180912-235926.png
     
  17. If you haven't already:

    Back up the data on the card
    Remove the card
    Install ZenUI File Manager
    Reformat the card
    Restart the phone
    The card should read properly

    I use SanDisk cards because PNY and Samsung aren't reliable for me at least.

    100% agree. Charging takes a little longer to reach 100%.

    Guys, can someone that has updated pls check the following 2 bugs I found on Oreo MR0 and MR1:
    • Samsung Evo + 256GB microSD card used as adoptive storage will show as double it's size 512GB with 256GB already used by system and issues trying to move files.
    • Fortnite and Lineage 2 Revolution has audio problems in game, during battles the sound effects will be lost and only music plays. The sound effects will appear for 2 secs intermittently.
    Kindly confirm if these 2 bugs were fixed in this MR2 update, thanks!

    My Samsung Evo Plus 128gb Class 10, U3 shows correct storage percentage.
