 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please

 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.

Very sad is bagging about g-850f in same time when for Snapdragon variant rom is went to Android 9.0 (Pie).
Look as discrimination of Exynos.
Very sad story.
