Any idea where I could have a demo of the Asus Rog 2 phone in Mumbai? It was launched today I believe.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

I am on the Honor View 10 and may possibly upgrade my phone soon. I also use the Huawei Health App paired with a Huawei Band 2.

Is there any way to migrate the data or export/import the data when moving to a new non-Huawei/Honor Phone?

Does the Huawei health app support Google Fit? If yes, you could sync to that and re-sync to a new device.

Been using 6T for a while and has purchased a OP7 last month. Its a nice snappy phone. Changed to OP from a Galaxy Note 8 and Iphone 7. Everything except the camera part is good. But still for the price it is VFM.

Well, I can say that I am reasonably happy. But am starting to get a bit bored already. Am hoping that Android 10 with native dark mode would bring some excitement. The phone is fast and fluid, no doubt. And it's still a head turner. Major gripe is with the screen which, according to me, is a bit grainy for my liking. I sometimes view it alongside the Nokia 7 plus and sigh.

In other things, the auto brightness is a mess, but then the Nokia wasn't much better. I miss the Nexus 5X here.

Fingerprint reader performance has degraded over time. I don't know what the issue is. But yes, it is still fast enough, so not complaining.

Camera is fine for me. It over saturates the colors a bit too much, but then I guess its a Chinese trait. Nokia had better color reproduction, and so did the Nexus.

I still have not got used to the lack of the headphone jack. I added another pair of wireless earphones to my office bag and bought a Bluetooth adapter for my AT MSR7. But my instinct is to always reach for a wired earphone lying around.

I hope I can hold on to it for a year. I will hand it over to my wife (she is fascinated by it) if I can find something I like better. But chances are bleak looking at the kind of phones being outed nowadays.

i Installed it manually using the Oxygen updater. Below are some of the issues that i have with this update.

1. Adaptive Brightness is erratic.
2. Take more time to charge than earlier.
3. Fingerprint sensor turns on randomly.

1. It was already erratic. So has it become worse?
2. That's kinda strange.
3. I have been seeing this lately even in Pie. I get the phone out of the pocket and see that the fingerprint scan is disabled and a message that I have exceeded the number of tries.

Am wary of the Oxygen updater method as I read somewhere that it installs a version not meant for the region. I'll wait for a couple of days more and then try Oxygen updater.

Not sure if you have Pocket mode enabled. Typically, what you are describing happens if the sensor inadvertently runs against your body inside the pocket, thereby activating fingerprint scan (and the scan failing since your finger is not being scanned in the first place).

If Pocket mode is on, this should not happen and all screen unlocking activity etc is automatically disabled till the time that you bring the phone out of your pocket. I always have this mode on in my OP 6T.

Looks like the pocket mode option is not available for the 7 series. Maybe it will arrive with the 10 update.

This was available since the OP3. (I have one currently).

It should definitely be there.

Check under the head Utilities in your phone Settings section. Most likely it will be there since it has been there for earlier models as well. Don't see why they would delete it since it is a very useful feature and I'd be quite surprised if they have indeed removed it .

I have always updated using the Oxygen updater, as India gets the OTA slowly. Never faced any issue so far. You can actually verify the model number of the phone under device info and make sure it is right, AFAIK File is downloaded based on this model number.

As my phone is rooted , i cannot do the upgrade OTA. Have to download the files do a local upgrade through twrp and then flash the other root related stuff.
