    Thread Question Debloating

    I don't want to unlock the bootloader but I would like to get rid of some of the bloat - what would you get rid of and how would you do it (e.g. adb pm uninstall) Thanks.

    Thread Very high radiation levels

    Thread Signal messages being sent from wrong SIM

    I have a UK SIM in slot 1, a Portuguese SIM in slot 2, and SIM 1 as the default for everything. Yet when I send a message via Signal to a non-Signal user it is sometimes sent using SIM 2 - has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if it's a bug in OxygenOS or a bug/feature in Signal. I am...

    This morning I received the Android 8.1 OTA, it took over an hour to process and when it had finished my tablet had been wiped. Not happy!

    Thread Daydream compatible?

    I understand that the other HTC U11 variants aren't Daydream compatible - will the Plus be? a) does it meet the requirements and b) do HTC want it to?

    Thread Daydream View now or ZTE VR headset whenever?

    Nougat is supposedly arriving on the Axon 7 sometime in January 2017 - will the promised ZTE VR headset emerge at the same time? How will it compare cost/performance wise with the Google headset which is available right now? https://www.reddit.com/r/Axon7/comments/55uq2q/daydream_for_axon_7/

    Thread "NOT Daydream ready" (!)

    So, neither the Axon 7 or the ZTE VR headset are actually Daydream ready, which is not what I was led to believe! https://community.zteusa.com/thread/1544 You are correct. The ZTE VR headset is not Daydream ready. At launch of Daydream, only the Google headset will be Daydream ready. We...

    Thread Alarm not waking powered off phone

    Until recently an alarm set in the ZTE Clock app would cause the phone to power up a couple of minutes before the alarm's due time, and then the alarm would sound. A couple of times it didn't work and recently it hardly ever seems to work. Are others experiencing this problem? If you want it...

    Thread Unlocked bootloader delay, wifi reception and Nougat

    My Pixel C is due to be delivered in the next couple of hours and I have a few questions for you seasoned owners: Is it worth unlocking the bootloader given the 30 second delay and any problems this might cause getting Nougat? Just how bad is wifi for you now? (This could be a major issue for me...

    Thread Battery level incorrect, calibration not fixing it

    When the battery reaches an indicated 50%, the tablet shuts down. Charging then shows 0%, which I think is correct. I've followed the standard calibration techniques a few times (wipe stats, discharge, recharge) twice and get the same result. Is there a better approach or do I just have to learn...

    Thread European launch

    ZTE UK have mistimed the launch, the Amazon pro-order listing that went up yesterday was the official one even though the countdown only ended today - so there's a one month wait plus 2-3 weeks for delivery! And it's still not listed on ZTE UK's website. The Quartz Grey should be launched...

    Thread Virtually no SMS or calls when wifi connected

    Since yesterday morning I receive very few SMSs or calls when wifi is connected. I installed 4.4.4 a few days before that so I doubt it's that (although I supposed it's possible) I've reflashed the radio, reflashed 4.4.4 in its entirety, flashed CM11 - all with the same result - when wifi's...

    Thread [Q] Won't turn on, no LED when charging

    I've taken the battery out, pressed all the relevant keys but no LED when plugged in makes me think I've got an fatal problem here :crying: It doesn't feel warm when plugged in. This does not bode well. The last thing I did what to put it into airplane mode overnight - it was at around 97% then.

    I've noticed a couple of oddities: 1) Astro's MD5s suppress the leading zero 2) Moving files from downloads to the external SD card results in an error - copying and then deleting is okay though (using Astro - I haven't tested using other tools) Anybody else noticed these?
