Amazing to see, that the Update is coming after all! hats off to zte, well done
I would ask them to look into sRGB mode, in dev options, it seems it does not work, put it on, and then it resets back to of when you
go back to dev options to see it...
TL;DR- sRGB option in Developer settings does not stay on
This is great.
I got my replacement today from amazon, Yes,Display is little better,yes.
But the funny thing is,instead of reddish tint, i now have greenish/yellowish tint spots.
Left side is fine but right side is more warmer, "blue starts to look green" is what i mean...
Simply little better,but not how it should be. Less smooth panel "more motionblur,most noticeable in VR"
TL;DR- Replacement came, Is better now yes, but still B grade panel with different issue...
I will just keep this one. If i knew replacement is no better, i would not have asked for a replacement...
Amazon shipped me already replacement instantly.
Well that was resolved quickly... Now i need to ship current device back to Germany.
- i sent them mail, and like 5 mins later they shipped a replacement
Lets hope new unit wont have same problem and that i will be able to ship it back.
it seems i lost the display lottery, i got bad panel on my A7...
You can check if you have bad panel here (Oled Banding test) https://www. youtube.com/ watch?v=dP4vEGREGD4 Skip to 1:28 To gray scale
Yes, Security patches is priority N:1
Daydream, it is needed, many invested in this device because daydream VR option.
-Very good view on the matter "DK666" security patches is more desireable/preferred than new build.
I can recommend to disable assertive display in the screen settings
yes, good ideas. assertive display off now. will test more now, in low lit room will test.
I think this can be fixed easily by Disabling it on over 75% brightness if that will be done so in next updates.
ill check back to share how it goes now (assertive display off)
Here is some devs made their S7 edges better by simply tweaking Kernel Stuff.
TL;DR - Yes,It is possible by Tweaks, to make it better, and reduce PWM (like make no PWM aover 75% brightness)
ill try to forward this to LOS developers.
Also yeah, Assertive display off and is slighty better i think,not sure.
More testing i will do
I need flicker free screen.
i agree. i notice the flickering,i cant use the phone for long time youtube etc.
next time ill go for Quality LCD, Even though my old S3 and S4 had no problems with flickering, but A7 does...
Happy to hear the good news!
Very good ! The support of this device has been very good.
-Yes,Camera Api2 to be Fully enabled, (so to have HDR+ with google camera app)
-Making good usage of the DACs ,That it has for audio.
There is some great feedback on this thread, all of them seems like really usefull stuff.
member "squicky" says it all.
My Axon 7 from GEARBEST just arrived.
Do you know if I have to install every other updates from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1 before the latest?
hi, it seems you just put the B4 or B8 update on the card and manually update, or so.
Someone will correct and add more accurately the update process i hope.
Increased Finnish support yeah!
Niinistö likes it haha. Lol.
i will update my device too when it arrives (over a month now from gearbest)
Id say, Oreo Update will fix it.
we can only wait now.
I hope they take care of the international G model too.
-It would be amazing to see Camera2Api enabled fully in future, To have googles HDR+ function (it has very good advanced image processing)
right now the downloaded app cannot use that function, because its not enabled on hardware level.
Happy to hear that support continues
Im happy to hear. Honesty is good and i value it. thank you for that.
now, there is no rush for Oreo, better late and stable fully working, than early buggy broken,yeah, would you all agree?
so yes,i hope the Devs take all the time they need, to make a Good ROM,stable android 8 Oreo.
-yes more functionality for stock music player is a must, as others (players) do not support dac function,
so no HI-FI on 3rd patry apps yet. (adding DAC "on/off" function maybe?)
i dont think they will give pure android,no company does this other than Nokia. so thats 100%
Yet,Option to choose 2 updates is too complicated for most users,agree what user -Wes- said, so option on internet download manually Stock android tuned for axon 7 would be amazing for the community members.
------TL;DR -No rush for Oreo, we can wait for stable working update. We can wait-------
Can look into the TouchPal keyboard issue?
it seems the solution was to update it or disable and replace with diff app ie swiftkey or so.
-also No root firewall app can block its access to internet thus no ads.
Yes, A better functionality on Player is a must, because other music players do not support DAC,so
improve DAC usability (on/off) function or improve stock player. 2 ways
why? well this is sold as great audio phone yeah,so thats why.
imagine if ZTE would reach great community like 1+.
i believe ZTE can deliver.
Thanks. (theres no like/thanks button so i just type :D)
Will do a test of my own not so very soon
So, I will do a test in near future with A7 and VR headset, Daydream,cardboard Vr.
For those who want to know more about Vr and so.
So i have ordered Bobo Z4 mini (its same as the new Z5 ) VR Headset just to try it out and share my experience.
i will test how it is and tell if it is , in my opinion a must try experience. Something you should try or not.
as of now i have Only tried it with different headset and different screens. (Leji mini Vr+Galaxy s4) (yes, Youtube in VR is epic!)
Still...Connecting phone to PC through TrinusVR app and playing GTA V or so, is AMAZING
Ho lee Shizzle!
Very promising...htc vive/rift on the cheap , diy style.
i will do a full written review and thoughts here (when the stuffs arrive) , and tell if it will be something you will find worthy to try as well.
