    I got my Razer 2 three days ago, so after I transferred all my data and apps over, I downloaded the Pie update. I have had non stop problems ever since.

    Apparently, Pie was full of bugs when it was released (I was rocking a Note 5 before this so I didn't know about new updates) and it took them quite a while to work out issues with other phones. Almost EVERY reported issue those early adopters had I am now having. I used Razer Support to try to find out why my Overview button disappeared, and they had no idea. While talking to them I found out on my own that it was an issue the update had (which you can thankfully change back with a setting). I've also had my EXPENSIVE Razer RGB charging dock stop fast charging, as well as the majority of the other problems. I haven't found very much help, or reports of others having the same issues, but until they fix it, the only thing I can do is revert to Android 8, which involves resetting my phone. 3 days in is no big deal for me, but please don't make my mistake.

    Overview, or Recent Apps is now a gesture on Pie.... thats why the button isn't there any more. I haven't recieved the update yet due to being a carrier based handset, however the gesture is part of Android and a well known change. I believe it also details it in the changelogs for the update.

    Gesture control is the default setting on Pie but as you found out and noted above its one setting to change to get the old navigation bar back.

    As for quick charging mine is working fine on the wireless charger on pie charging rapidly as soon as I place it on the charger

    I let the phone update to pie before swapping in the sim, logging into my google account or copying/installing data/apps. Only issues so far are app related due to compatibility with pie, as expected. Phone itself is working great thus far.

    Yup. It is fine for me too.
    It is faster and battery last longer! Like it.

    Wish I saw this post yesterday... Since the update, my WiFi is acting crazy. It works for some web pages and for WhatsApp but that's it. Netflix won't load, Facebook won't update, games won't login. 4g is working fine and if I set a VPN on the wifi, it also works. I don't know what the hell is happening. Is there any way that I can revert back to android 8 without messing with the ROM?
