    I just noticed that myself, even though I already installed the update. Taking a look at the apps I have installed, looks like this update forces the Netflix app to be installed on your phone. I guess they're really wanting us to try Netflix with HDR playback and enjoy that Dolby sound!

    ... too bad I don't use Netflix LOL

    Netflix comes pre-installed on the Razer Phone I guess?
    Not much of an update though.

    Nope, when I first got my phone, Netflix wasn't installed. There were a few other apps pre-installed, like games, to try out, but beyond that... Netflix is a new app addition with this update.

    Well, the security updates are very welcome to me, even if they don't mean much to you lol

    Yeah my bad. I meant to say...

    Netflix will now come pre-installed on new Razer Phones after this update.

    I'm a huge user of Netflix but the phone's speakers are already very overwhelming. I didn't know there wasn't 5.1 support until this update.

    And yeah I guess security updates are always welcome!

    i don't have the phone, but is the camera actually good now? or is it still the same as what it was before? (camera compared to other flagship phones around the same price)

    better compared to the release build... but still need a lots of improvement. hdr+ photo still require 1-2 sec to shutter...

    The camera seems much better, but considering I have shaky hands, with HDR on, I'm still able to produce wonky photos.. I was going to create a thread on this a few weeks back but I forgot.. oops. But lately, for about 90% of the photos I take, they look decent enough - alas, I am but an amateur photographer who only takes quick snaps for work-related projects.

    Really upset that I'm on the ThreeUK branded RazerPhone so I won't see the update for months. We only got the day one update which included the September security patch.

  13. Should've gone for the international unlocked version. I'm in the UK and got the update on Tuesday, IIRC. This kind of thing happens all the time with hardware locked to service providers; it's the provider that insists on vetting it, not the manufacturer.

    How come you know your Phone is global or Locked? I think mind is global because i use SE Asia Carrier...

    I didn't get any update since September too.. need help with this

  15. I bought the unlocked version direct from Razer. If you buy any phone from a provider, it'll pretty much be guaranteed to be locked to that provider.

    I am also with 3 but it's only going to take a couple weeks to check and then we will have it. Don't worry friend

    Yeah I'm fully aware the fault is with Three as it's breeching security they have a month to get the updates on my phone or I will just quit the contract with them. As they can't supply me with a up to date secure phone unless it's iOS where they have no say in what gets put on the phone.

    If you guys dig a bit deeper, it was mentioned on social media (link here) that some phones will get the update quicker than others... good luck to the rest of you still waiting, but it should be soon!
