Will Android Oreo support rootless substratum theme support for this device?
are you still in smartphone retail business? maybe it's better if you could actually get sample and try it and post your impression or review of it compare it to other phones you have or prefer i'm just guessing it could be more useful informations. for some people looking on this page, they actually want to read useful information that could help them decide if they want to purchase it or not like you know from normal daily user, that actually experience with the phone for some quite times now just because i'm guessing they probably going to use the phone in long term not just like for a week or a month

for most people they using sd card to backup or preload it with files. not all of us have the very exact same data connection,in term of stability, quota, and price. i myself using sd card to store media files so when i travel with let's say airplane, i could consume the media that i want for free, unless flight travelling now allowing people to actually connect to their phone network then i guess that's not a problem for most people. all those useless features you've been preaching.it's useless for you.for some people, they might actually need it. i live in tropical country. whenever it's rainy season.it is rain almost every day for 6 months. also floods happen in every year.so some water proof features might appealing for those who need it.
just like the phone design, everybody has their own thing, i like sony design, i prefer sharp, but to buy sharp phone i need to buy direct from japan. and others manufacturers just more or less the same.when you see sony phone it is sony.i like that. not just phone design,but pretty much everything,sony daps,sony headphones,playstation,tv,you knew it's sony brand when you see the products
i do have some complaints with sony though.their customer service in my country is sucks.like super sucks. when you bought sony phone just prepare not to have any warranty.that's how sucks their customer service in my country.also price.but considering the options, sony more appealing(for some people) so i guess that's the price you have to pay
i do have issues with quality control with newer electronic products in general, it could've been better but all those could be minimalize with better customer service. i bought brand new lumia 1020 back in those day.not even a year, it suddenly dead. a year later. i bought used lumia 1020. it's still working to this day.it's been 2 and half years with that used phone now. go figure what the hell is wrong it
xXENDER FREAKXx, 18 Sep 2017Just ignore those haters, they ain't worth it, they waste your time. Don't waste your time on ... moreI always try.
But try it yourself....
Try start discussing anything good about this device.
They jump in, bashing, hating, lying, with unrelated stuff, promoting their fav devices...
See, for ex, I will say that XZ1 camera can produce most excellent night shots, and even best via manual, as seen by tests even here...
1, 2, 3,...and...look at thm replying, bashing, lying, overexagerrating, promoting their fav... ;-)
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017so the sd card problem. is that phone manufacture fault or android os(google) fault? Who do you think added the kitkat SD card write restriction? Google. Who design the entire structure of android even now? Google. And even till now, who isn't making a progress in system structure from 32 bit to 64 bit. GOOGLE. So yes. It's google. I thought android O would have changes in the SD card writing restriction. Turns out. It isn't much of an improvements from the nougat. This is the reason why many android smartphone manufacturers tend to delay or even don't get the latest update for the capable smartphone. Cause it only improves interface. Why do you think nougat only has 13.5% of smartphone brands?
Tann Hauser, 17 Sep 2017True? Give it a rest man. Of course I can explain every single point, and you just wont agre... moreJust ignore those haters, they ain't worth it, they waste your time. Don't waste your time on them when they don't believe or anything else, waste your time on something that is more worth the value than them
L0lip0p, 18 Sep 2017Fact is, it depend on how people use it, if yours can last doesn't mean other's also can, ther... moreWell this is first time i should agree with you.
But it still doesnt mean that if you had lenovo or xiaomi before and these phones wasnt working as you expected it doesnt means others maybe the same models shouldnt.
if you send phone to repairs due some mistake or error doesnt means all phones of same type are bad. Everythign depends on people what they looking for and what they need.
If for example someone using the ophone just for dialing and messaging Samsung S8 or Sony XZ premium, Iphone 7-8 or X will be a waste of money for him.
AnonD-441601, 17 Sep 2017Man mine Lenovo Vibeshot bought 5.11.2015 works till now ike a swiss watch. So what i have som... moreFact is, it depend on how people use it, if yours can last doesn't mean other's also can, there's some people that can breakdown a smartphone in a day or two or find it flaw in an hour of using it, so better controlled quility product and service center is required, the point is you got opinions you can share, not force to other
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 17 Sep 2017Majority of cosumers won't be using the wireless charging if it doesn't have wireless charging... moreso the sd card problem. is that phone manufacture fault or android os(google) fault?
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 17 Sep 2017If you can't explain it. Why even bother complaint against my comment if it was true?True?
Give it a rest man.
Of course I can explain every single point, and you just wont agree, so I wont bother.
I ve been explaining to people here for years now, and they either dont agree, or some just dont even want to plainly think or read.
So stop pulling my leg for explanations, and stop patronising over "truth"...
savage, 15 Sep 2017Wireless charge is not a useless thing,it became useless if majority of consumer wont using it... moreMajority of cosumers won't be using the wireless charging if it doesn't have wireless charging. Most android smartphones tend to use the microUSB and USB type C. Since apple joined the wireless charging consortium. There should be a significant changes in all android devices. Rendering all smartphone brands to use wireless charging.
Sony has wireless charging since the early Z series? You mean This?
It was specifically made for Xperia Z3. So why all the preceeded xperia devices didn't get wireless charging?
Cheap SD card? I have a Sandisk Clas 10 64GB microSD card. And I tell ya. App data that was on the SD card cannot be deleted and requires a PC to manually deleted them. I recently have too many photos, videos and App data that once were stored on the MICROSD card back in the jellybean years. Ever since kitkat came around. I can't even delete any files from my MICROSD card via android phone. So those useless data get's stored on the microSD card without users consent. Till Now, these are the hidden folders that can only be seen on android device.
A. .HhtjqSR.... folder
B. .android_secure file
C. customized capability.xml
I didn't even knew these files. So when I tried to delete them. They don't appear on my phone or when the phone is connected to the pc.
And FYI, Higher than 64GB microSD card are hard to find. Mostly you would find 128GB microSD card. But it is priced at $120. The hardest is the 256GB which is priced at $199. Both have excise tax in it. So The point of getting an expensive microSD card isn't worth it if it would have the same price tag as a cheap smartphone.
Tann Hauser, 15 Sep 2017No, not actually. It would take too long a post to explain, and you probably wouldnt agree. So no. If you can't explain it. Why even bother complaint against my comment if it was true?
L0lip0p, 17 Sep 2017You seem definitely know nothing how a product is made...
And your ego seem over the top, mad... moreMan mine Lenovo Vibeshot bought 5.11.2015 works till now ike a swiss watch. So what i have some special model made by someone else?
And i definitely know how product is made you just try to negotiatelike always. I know its your opinion same like i told you mine and we can argue forewer who is right and whos not.
I am selling phones for a long long time i know what i am speaking about. In my shop we selling like 40 different brands. So i should know something.
About my ego. I dont have any. I dont need to tell you chocolate with caramel to amaze you. I bet you have your own head and you should know that my words make sense. About the support if an update is released often it means the product is failuer. In other words someone trying to fix often same errors. Less updates but more complex are usualy better. And your Lenovo and Xiaomi it should be wrong model.
Every phone breaks soon or later.
You can buy the biggest crap on the market for example Samsung Z4 and it will last 10 years even with that specs its should be unbelievable. Or you can buy iphone X and it will die in 1-2 weeks. Looks how ended Note 7 from samsung. So please keep your stories for scarying children over night not for someone who speak to the point and have experience.
Ye and one last thing. In last year in my shop i sold about hundred of xiaomi devices mostly Xiaomi 4A, 4X and Redmi 4 Note. And only 2 returned for repairs.
By the way have a nice day my friend.
AnonD-441601, 16 Sep 2017Man i think you never had a chinese mioodel before. Using Lenovo Vibeshot for 2 years and work... moreYou seem definitely know nothing how a product is made...
And your ego seem over the top, made in chinese and made by Chinese is different, it got to do with quality control and how the phone is supported, if we are talking about features phone which what you pay is what you get and it stay... Nowdays phone had to do with the long term support and that alone cost money
Lenovo phone last long? , where that come from, i used lenovo before and it stability barely last me 6 month before it started hang and heating up for no good reason
In fact i even had my xiaomi that died coze of bootloop and it didn't even last a year
Sending it to the retailer and guess what after a mont they send it back to me and said the phone can be repaired and the annoying thing even the power button is uresponsive after i send it
AnonD-441601, 16 Sep 2017Man to be honest i said my opinion and wasnt offense. If this touched you then you didnt see m... moreJust regarding your comment about a splash resist feature being a waste of money, at least a couple million phone users use either public or motorcycles to & from work for financial or efficiency reasons, and this trend occurs mostly in countries nearest to the equator rather than the poles..this means rain & humidity, lots of it and sometimes unexpected thunder storms. Not to mention the occasional unavoidable waterborne traditions in some parts of South East Asia (28 million phone units in 2016 survey), everything is about being wet one way or another in that region. The anti-soaked-to-death-while-in-your-pocket feature is badly needed!. You are saying unless all criterias are met its a waste of money, is a waste of sentence, its like saying: unless everybody likes ice cream then its a waste to build an ice cream factory. Well, most people do like ice cream! And sometimes even when it rains... Just a thought, peace!
