    Post Touch issue after December feature drop

    This issue was NOT fixed in the January release. I and many others are confirming this. Google has yet to fix a major touch-screen bug, almost 2 months after the issue was brought up.

    Post Touch issue after December feature drop

    This is a widespread issue that has been reported by many. So far there is still no update from Google. I am running November build without any touch issues. Google support forum with lots of people reporting.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong. I've tried 3 more times this morning and still bootloop during the setup. Did your installation steps differ from the instructions on page 1? Edit: Turns out it was my 1TB Micro SD card that caused the issue. Setup just fine without it installed.

    Wide angle works in an older GCam port (version 5.1.018, com.google.android.GoogleCameraWide), but is not working in Asus camera.

    Post Power button delay caused by Google Assistant (9.0 Pie)

    There is some specific timing to it. If I wake the phone after it's been sleeping for a couple seconds, then there's almost no delay waking and unlocking. But if I press the power button twice consecutively (or within a couple seconds), then there easily at least a .5 second delay.
