    Thanks for the recommendation, I think you may have misunderstood my post and I cant stop laughing and I understand this is the wrong thread to ask why the app detects my battery as 92%. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Post Standby drain

    Does that make Gsam a better buy ? Accubattery estimates that my battery is at 92% health. I am not sure how accurate this is as I've taken good care of my battery and never charge my phone over night and rarely past 95% and Ive owned this device for 3 weeks.

    Post Note 10+ Pre-installed Screen Protector

    I am super happy with the stock film screen protector and I even wish Samsung service centers can offer to replace this for a fee. Mine is still pretty awesome but for sure this wont last 6 months. Whitestone Glass dome is just to expensive for me

    The only 'laggy' part of the UI that I see is the rotation animation it feels like 15-30fps and it triggers me, everything else is super smooth

    Post Note 10+ battery only 4170 mah ?

    Since only 4170 is actually usable this means there should be no worry of battery wear if we charge the battery to 100% as technically its only ever charged to 80%, correct ?

    I turned off AOD for a few days and I am getting 0.2% drain per hour of deep sleep. Are there any AOD mods to keep it at lowest brightness, I noticed AOD is a little too bright at times.

    Post P9 Plus unable to turn on wifi randomly

    Mine just does not turn wifi on, if I leave it connected the entire day there is no issue. I cleared cache and disabled wifi scanning and it got fixed. I didnt bother to future out which of the 2 did the trick. But thanks for the heads up on that post too.

    Thread P9 Plus unable to turn on wifi randomly

    My P9 Plus wont turn on WIFI and its pretty random but turning the phone off (by holding the power button) and turning it back on fixes the problem until it occurs again, is this a sign of a hardware failure or I just need to perform a factory reset? When I switch WIFI on its animation gets...

    What I understand is OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer. Im not sure what you mean by after the OTA, the OEM will not appear anymore, do you mean OEM unlock in developer options? or do you mean new OTA updates ?

    When I got my first unit, i was able to 'screen' a total of 4 units and I settled on the 4th unit as it was very uniform and all of a sudden it developed a huge red tint on the top and bottom after about 5-6 days.

    Post How is the screen uniformity so far?

    I found 1 that is very acceptable, if I had to give a score on the screen its 8.5/10, because anything outside adaptive is reddish but a uniform reddish. the *#15987# seems to only work in adaptive.

    Post How is the screen uniformity so far?
