    This is not new to .98. Pin is required every 24hrs or if phone has been idle for 4hours. Try disabling face unlock. With fingerprint unlock you only need to enter pin every 72 hours.

    (Quote) Question for people who use this: I've read that disabling overlay results in apps using more processing power. Has it impacted the battery life?

    (Quote) So I've set it to 144hz and 60% brightness and here's what I get: The first pic is with 'Disable HW overlays' turned off as is the default case. (Image) The next one is with 'Disable HW overlays' turned on. This setting seems to make it muc…

    (Quote) I didn't find any noticeable black crush on that video. I have noticed it on the Batman vs. Bane video on YouTube (sorry can't post links yet). For me it's most pronounced around 50% brightness. That used to be the case at much lower brightn…

    (Quote) That's unlucky. Hope you find a fix. I tried browsing that site you mentioned and had no issues on my phone. I can't even replicate the issues I was having previously.

    (Quote) I'm not sure that's the issue as I have compared it to my Pixel 3 which has/had no issues with this either in Android 10 or 11. On my ROG 3 certain pages suddenly freeze and stop responding to touch. When I go to home screen or switch to ano…

    (Quote) (Image) (Image) Top pic is using stock camera and bottom pic is gcam. Both using main lense and no night mode on. I have taken hundreds of pics and in general colours, contrast and white balance are better with gcam. Although gcam has its qu…

    (Quote) Well I'm glad I don't have the ROG 2 then. It's very touching to see your concern. Don't worry about bursting bubbles. There isn't one to burst and your attempts are feeble. I checked the frequency bands before I bought it and it's doing ju…

    (Quote) I sold my Pixel 4xl and so I basically got the ROG 3 for about £150. The risk isn't as bad for me. Also, forums tend to be disproportionately full of negative comments and people posting about faults. So statistically these hardware faults a…

    (Quote) I appreciate your frustration. However, I do believe that if companies like Asus didn't include Google apps and services it would annoy and inconvenience more people than it helps. People tend to be annoyed by duplicate apps/stores or servic…

    I think Asus provide certain alternative apps to Google's. Google apps are very popular. You can always install whatever apps you want.

    (Quote) I don't think any manufacturer offers that option. My previous Huawei, Pixel and Samsung phones all asked for pin after reboot.

    (Quote) It's the forum rules. Whenever I try to post links I get this message: You have to be around for a little while longer before you can post links.

    (Quote) I don't know what my neighbours must be thinking... I have the US and UK English models downloaded for offline. Assistant works fine when I activate it using either squeeze or swipe. After I say "OK google" it makes a sound and the…

    I've just tried it with bluetooth on and off and I get the same result. After shouting "ok google" at it for almost 5 minutes I got it to work once. But strangely the microphone started working after about 5 seconds. I haven't been able to…

    (Quote) Thanks. The setting is enabled and I've tried rebooting it a few times and the setting stays enabled. It detects "Hey google" but then doesn't respond at all. The little coloured dots animation that shows when it detects sounds don…

    (Quote) In most cases I felt the gcam had true to life colours. The stock cam made the colours a little too bright and vibrant. It's nice to see but not realistic. However, the stock cam is still quite good a producing colours. Remember gcam is not…

    (Quote) Version 7.3.018.291816413. Not sure if this is latest one.
  • mohammed98221
    I decided to buy a tencent version despite the downsides. The international version is twice the price of the tencent and I couldn't justify spending that much. I appreciate what the mods are saying but as long as you're fully aware of what you're …

    A quick update: So I've speed tested my phone at several locations now and I'm happy to say that it is averaging a healthy 30/40 Mbps download. So I guess I will be keeping this phone. Now just have to wait for a fix for black crush...
  • mohammed98221
    When I first got my phone I didn't have any mobile network data either. I had to add the APN settings manually. If you have the same issue then you should Google your networks APN settings and then go to 'Mobile and internet > Mobile network >…

    So, I have finally got my hands on the phone (12/128 Tencent version with WW) and here are a few thoughts: 1) OTA does not work but I have managed to download and install latest update (78 I think). Fairly easy process and so is not an issue. 2) Goo…

    (Quote) Thanks. For 2) Is CN to WW rom enough for these apps to work or will the fingerprint will also need to be changed to ww? As far as I can tell the sellers are changing the rom to ww but not sure about fingerprint.
