IcI:

nzkiwiman: ... It does have the back fingerprint reader ... 



  • Who here has tried to use the fingerprint reader?

  • Have you tried to unlock your phone with a non-registered finger?


Mine unlocks with any finger on the sensor.


My wife uses a leather wallet cover so the finger print reader on the back is useless to her. Has to use PIN unlock unlike Mt Motorola which has the reader in the front and easy to use.

ronw: Another oddity when you make appointment on calendar, you no longer get option to choose a colour. In past you had a range of choices now it's brown only

Setting it via an exchange server account? I use the outlook.com calender and it's always brown.

Another problem with Pie is DND which has been changed to the point of being useless. I used to be able to pull down screen select DND and tap the time and then done and the phone was silent for that period.Try doing that under Pie it is a nightmare

If you hold down on DND, it will open the settings. Under Schedule, you might have Duration set to something (Until you turn off, or For 1 hour etc). Sounds like you want that to be Ask every time? Then it works as you describe, click DND and you get a popup asking how long to activate it for.

@ronw do not disturb works fine on my One Plus 6 running Android Pie. I get all the options I need and it is dead easy.

The default behaviour changed and finding the setting was not immediately obvious.

I have noticed that on other phones but gave I Heart away and use another app. Have not noticed any drop outs since Nokia 7 though. I did have problem with Radio NZ app which is really bad with dropouts. The other thing is that I live in the East Coast Bays of Auckland and the 4G reception is pitiful. If I lose 4G the radio stops. Doesnt seem to like non 4G

October SP is available for 7 plus now. Looks like we're getting it at the same time as everyone else.

Samoi: October SP is available for 7 plus now. Looks like we're getting it at the same time as everyone else.

 

Checked for updates this morning and it was there - now installed okay. I'd previously sideloaded Pie, so doing that hasn't stopped the OTA updates coming through.

 

(Like others, I needed to re-boot afterwards to get gestures back)
