    Warranty service will require you to send to China AFAIK.

    It depends on where you are. If you're in the UK, Clove will give you a better experience if you need warranty service but you'll pay more.

    I'll use the m-pen exactly like I used the s-pen: i.e. for about 10 minutes every 3 months when I remember it's there.

    No idea, I don't have that issue. Ask the developer, he's very helpful, email address on the Play Store page.

    I think it was "pocket sensor" that caused battery problems for me. I leave AOD on all the time because I charge overnight anyway.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.newgen.alwayson Make sure not to set any options in Settings that say may drain the battery. With this one very little battery drain for me.

    Use a decent AOD app and LED isn't an issue.

    It won't be cheaper if you get charged 25% VAT on import. I'm just hoping I get away with it... :eek:

    I've bought from this eBay seller on Monday, DPD says it's in transit. Remember that Switzerland isn't EU, so you may get hit for VAT on import.

    Thread Screen Stays on While Running

    Recently, my Fit2 Pro has started keeping the screen on while I'm out running. It used to turn off after the timeout (15 seconds) but now I have to turn the screen off manually, and then it'll turn on again and stay on. Maddening. I've had to get around this by turning DND on or by turning off...

    I've been keeping an eye on that one too, looks great. But big question is whether the extra 0.3" of screen diagonal is worth three times the price of a Mi Max 3. Tempting though... :eek:

    I would try out the Mi Max 3 if it had wireless charging. I would hate to be without that now.

    But you'll take keyboard and mouse, hope for access to a screen? Whatever works for you I guess, I'll have a play with it, but expect to put it on eBay pretty quickly.

    Have you guys not done a post-purchase freebie before? My experience is that they are all like this, farmed out to the lowest bidder to process, and then ignored by the supplier.

    1:2 ratio, so only marginally bigger than Note8. Looks good though.

    You guys should stop stressing. In my experience, these things take time but always get there in the end. Dell cashback one time took 8 months. Samsung SSD cashback 6 months. Just chill. :)

    No stuttering or glitching here, OEM unlock available, and doesn't feel at all cheap to me, it's incredibly comfortable in the hand. Screen is amazing, camera is very good. In fact, I would say that it's the best phone I've had to date, and even the bloat is much less than it used to be. The...

    It has a "screen zoom" setting under Display (as well as the usual font size setting). You can always adjust dpi via adb, that's what we had to do pre-Nougat for phones like the XA Ultra, but it's built-in now. Even on the smallest the Note8 is still a little too narrow, but it's a lovely...
