Best phone ever..The only problem is that screen protector did not fit perfectly due 2 da curved screen at the edges..so I've got rid of it..and I think I can use the j5 prime screen protector instead.

Exactly, it happens after calls. And sometimes I discover that the clock from always on display is not there anymore in daylight and I have to open it and close it in order to make it normal again.
What kind of a bug? How did you manage to solve this? Should I accept the update for the software it has found? Not for android but for the firm ware...
AnonD-436380, 03 May 2018Thank you for the info you have given. well, i am a PUBG gamer and its quite unfortunate that ... morePUBG is playable on a potato LG phone I own. It's even better on my A5. So yes, it can handle. Just not with high settings.
Thank you for the info you have given. well, i am a PUBG gamer and its quite unfortunate that this device cant handle the game. i had a SONY XPERIA X, updated it to the latest Oreo and that xperia x is awesome with oreo. but last sunday i accidentally dropped it and it went nuts, the LCD is malfunctioning. i hope the dealer will repair it at my cost. so maybe i'll just wait for it to be repaired.
I updated to April security patch and the battery drain is terrible now ...
I'm on April security patch since 2days ago, so far no heating issue battery is equally awesome
MIJ, 03 May 2018Just wait for Oreo update. The battery significantly improved and there is no heat issues.Thanks so much for the advice

MIJ, 03 May 2018Not too much of improvement but I think the selfie focus works better with Oreo. Where do u live and when u got oreo update
Anonymous, 01 May 2018What is your experience so far Is not my phone, cannot answer ur question
And ya, come with april patch
Pro - Battery as advertised
Con - Horrible keyboard (need super small fingers;
not very intuitive)
Heavily weighted down with useless apps
Slippier than a sack of wet eels. It's only a
matter of time before it hits the pavement.
Personal overview - frustrating little phone. A nuisance
I've own this phone for a year now. Just installed Oreo weeks ago and there is much improvements. The biggest improvement is the battery, I got about 6 and nearly 7 hours of SOT which is I never achieved with nougat before. The ui transition and animation is much smoother now (Felt like using a Galaxy S8 sometimes lol). There is no heating issues anymore. The camera viewfinder is much like galaxy S8 now. The camera video quality is improved a bit. I noticed the autofocus is much smoother rather than aggressive like the nougat did.
