Hello everyone. It's been a minute since I've posted anything on this site. In January this year I decided to upgrade from my aging Blackberry Priv to one of these phones. I've been using it without any issues until early this morning when I tried to look at my notifications and the screen wouldn't light up. It was working fine all throughout the day, and I don't recall the battery being below 50%. It is unresponsive when I plug it into the wall adapter or my PC, however the PC seems to pick it up as a device called "QUSB__BULK."

The phone is running stock Android, and I only charge it with the wall adapter it came with and occasionally my PC. I only have a few social media and email apps on it. I had the Open Camera app on it, and I'm a little sus of it since there have been times where I would wake the phone up and the camera would just randomly open. It seems like it would bog the phone down a bit when this would happen. I installed the app because I didn't like the way the stock app processed audio while recording videos. The app gave me the ability to record raw audio which worked fine aside from slightly lower volume.

Does anyone have any ideas on what could have caused this?

Figured I'd bump this for an update. I contacted the company shortly after I made this post about the phone. The phone was covered under warranty, and they told me to ship it to them for repairs. I shipped it in June and have contacted them a few times since. I'm suspecting that there was some kind of defect in the motherboard since I'm apparently not the only one who has had this issue. I found a post on another forum dating back to last year from someone with the same experience as me where their phone just randomly said "ight, Imma head out." It's been quite a while since I sent it off, which adds to my suspicion that it was a board issue given the whole chip shortage we're going through. I'll update this post if anything comes up in the future. I miss that phone. Been using an iPhone since I sent it off. It's okay I guess, but man do I miss that keyboard.

Update on the phone - I was contacted by F(X) Tec about four days ago. My phone has been repaired and shipped to the US. I should be getting it back by Wednesday. They did not specify what actually caused the issue with it. Hopefully, once I get it back it won't have any further issues.
