    Heaps of USB-C headphones and usb-c to 3.5mm havent worked for me. dunno why, is the USB-C port slightly different to normal? It doesn't even detect the hadphones at all in the 3.5mm adaptor or the usb-c port headphones.


    Also the GPS on google maps fails heaps, doesn't know where I am, was worst in the city, asks me to do an infinity symbol with my phone to improve strength and does nothing. Glitches a lot



    Also I didn't include it in the title cause everyone says it but why are the speakers so quiet now omg.

    That's because 8.1 Oreo MR2 still have some unfixed bugs and there's still no word from Razer on when they'll release another MR update to fix those bugs.

    Not all USB-C peripherals are wired the same way, including audio dongles and earphones. We follow the AOSP standard for the Phone.

    GPS issues could be due to your line of sight to neighboring satellites, either from poor weather, tall surrounding buildings, and other signal factors. Google Maps defaults to GPS calibration when this occurs, and is an expected behavior.

    Well why are yours different? I've literally tried 8 :/ But I'll see if i can search for AOSP specific.. doubt it


    Nope, GPS wont even work normally sometimes on a normal open road with no big buildings, perfect weather and etc.

    Some USB-C dongles do audio output without digital to analog conversion, do make sure your replacement dongles have it.

    For the Razer Phone, you must use a USB-C audio dongle that has a DAC, or else it will not work. The dongle that came with the Phone comes with a 24-bit DAC inside. Something like the Razer Hammerhead USB-C headphones also have a DAC inside as well.
