hio77: And sounds like preorders may be ready for pickup now :)

Now to finish work and wait out traffic....

 

 

 

Where did you order from? did you pick yours up today? 

 

 

Spark store, Northwest simply because it's my local on the way home, easy to jump off motoway and carry on through..

 

I ordered last Thursday, as i understand it There are plenty still.

 

 

 

some lucky folk that ordered for delivery possibly will have it in hand by now..

My JB HiFi changed to "Shipped" a couple of hours back but their crappy website doesn't supply a tracking number. Very rarely i get something on the same day but probably not.

2nd 12am is meant to be release time, so anything before is a plus :)

i have my mate 20, it's brilliant.

 

 

 

I have struck my first issue though, For some reason B7 and B40 don't CA at all.

 

on B3 and B28 it will happily CA between those two (so 2CA) but nothing more?

 

 

 

B7 seemed to do Interband CA, although it didn't show as 4G+

 

 

 

on a 16CA device, that baffles me, suspect a software update is required.

 

(to be clear, testing on my LG V20 gets 3CA B3+B28+B7 so it's not a tower configuration)

 

 

 

Anyone else noticed this? I've only tested on spark so far, simply because i don't know off the top of my head where if at all? vodafone have 3CA+..

thudb: Anyone have any screen issues?

https://forum.xda-developers.com/mate-20-pro/help/mate-20-pro-greenish-display-screen-t3859268

 

Not as far as i can tell.

 

 

 

If it's glue like implied, possibly device needs to heat up first?

 

mines hardly stretched it's legs yet.

@freitasm:

 

I have to say, the camera is amazing.

 

Also there was a second patch this morning. So as soon as you get yours, check for System Updates.

 

 

What version was this? 

 

 

 

Mine didn't have an update when i got it, as they were shipped to stores on the 31st and sealed i'm pretty sure the device wasn't preupdated..
