    Oreo 8.1 is now out for our Razer Phones, I got it two days ago. Unfortunatley, after the update, many apps and games don't work under wifi connection. I have to use 4g if I want to use em. Or disconnect from my wifi and riconnect again. Annoying ...

    My 128gb Samsung sd card is showing as 256 with 131gb lost to the system if I set it for adaptable storage if I set it up for portable it works fine. Having major headaches with widgets loading apps randomly dying and the wifi probs that hardspur1 1 is having especially with the play store. I'll be glad when the next ones out cause at the moment the phones gonna be taking a trip to the bin at this rate. My advice as bad as it is stay on 7.11 this oreo ain't worth the hassle its the developer image to say its riddled with bugs is like saying windows is bug-free

    got ur point nexy, oreo 8.1 at the mo is a bleeding disaster, but the phone remains a great device. possibly it's big G's fault, not razer's

    While I do not have most of the issues you have, I do have the misreading of the SD card size on my phone too. I have a 128, showing up as 256GB.

    No problems here with my internal storage nor my 64gb slotted SD card (portable not internal) but I am having problems with my USB-C->SD adapters (two different ones by two different manufacturers) since upgrading.

    I used an adapter to connect my DSLR's SD card to my phone to upload to social media. Previously, if I waited awhile in Instagram, it would eventually be usable. Now, it never is. If I look at the card in Asus File Manager, it shows a 0GB size (unlike the 32GB it should show as it did in Nougat). However, I can still view the files manually and in the built-in Files app. It just isn't usable in third party(?) apps which means no album uploads or direct uploads without going through a core app or copying to the phone. It's annoying because OTG storage was the main reason I upgraded from my NextBit Robin to this. Are they using different external filesystem APIs now?

    On top of that, my phone is seemingly no longer working with one of my USB-C display docks (an HP Lap Dock) that previously worked too.. But that might just be the dock since it was hit or miss. It still works fine with my Plugable USB-C->HDMI adapter so there's that.

    I do see app crashes from time to time now too. I'm slowly regretting updating. Ugh.

    EDIT: I did just notice that the internal Files app is misreporting my phone's internal space saying it has 14GB+ free (doesn't match my SDs either), yet the Settings' Storage menus correctly state I have 3GB free. Weirdly enough, before I enter that Storage menu, it also says 14GB on the menu item to view my storage devices. So I take back the "no problems" from earlier. Great.

    luckily so far I have no issues regarding my sd. it's a samsung 128GB and works as it should. free space is as shown. 80 GB used out of 128. After reading what u guys are experiencing, I keep my fingers crossed.

    Don't worry, you are not alone. A bit more patience
    Hopefully Razer will fix the problems very quickly
