I'm pretty sure you delivered an iPhone 4s there for me once upon a time? Sold and bought off of Carbonite?

We did a deal also but can't remember what it was for yes.

6T officially released, not worth the upgrade I think. Loudspeaker still poor and no headphone jack are my biggest peeves.

Yeah, stereo speakers is so overdue by now!! Headphone jack is a non issue though, unless you someone who perpetually charges their phone while listening to the headphones.

@sand_man I am pretty much office bound.so I find myself in situations where I need to charge and destroy my ears. But you are right, it's not a big deal. Had a an adapter with the mate 10. Worked pretty well

Hi, Gearbest has the official cases in stock. Buy it from there but please DO NOT EVER use standard shipping with Post Office.
I made that mistake. I've had my phone for a month and the case landed in SA on the 16th Oct. They just don't know where it is... Dammit..

The updated gesture navigation is such a huge improvement!

Quick app switching is lightning fast and the home transition is very slick. Kind of a bummer that you have to use the OnePlus launcher for the home transition to work properly (with apps reducing into their home screen icon), but I'm already pretty used to it. Easily the best stock launcher I'm aware of.

Got my phone last week. Ordered the accessories from Gearbest and I should have them tomorrow. Excited to try out the Nylon case.

Bought some tempered glass from India and it sucks really badly. Doesn't fit the whole screen and a lot of dirt and pocket lint gets in. Ordered an original screen protector from Takealot with the app150 code. Reviews look promising. It'll be here on Wednesday.

I unlocked the bootloader and rooted it. Running OOS Pie Beta 6 with Blu Spark Kernel. It's brilliant. Getting 6hrs screen on time. Initial testing of Night mode is that it reduces a hell of a lot of noise from dark shots. Still have to test more.

I prefer the navigation gestures only because all the screen real estate is utilized. Back, home and back, home and recents all take up a portion of the screen, at the bottom. I wish it could be made transparent in apps... Anyway to do this?

Some apps do it by default like Talon but most dont...

The lack of transparency within apps is indeed infuriating. Earlier this year I looked pretty hard for a solution but couldn't find one. Might be a Google-level decision to avoid the buttons being hard to see in apps that weren't designed for transparent buttons.

The full-screen view with gestures is indeed why it's worth some minor inconveniences, such as swiping for back instead of a quick touch.

I actually love the gestures but on 9.0.2 the animations aren't so natural using custom launcher (well, Nova in particular).

It behaves differently to how it behaves using Oneplus launcher.

Also some apps are getting confused whilst typing where hitting the space bar actually evokes the home gesture. This happens often to me in Whatsapp...

Try installing OnePlus launcher apk from apkmirror. October 31st upload. Some XDA guys say it has fixed some keyboard issues for them.

The spacebar thing is annoying. That's happening to me too
