Re: Android 9 is awful

Unfortunately that doesn't work - at least for me. After mapping the buttons like you said, nothing changed, still the one and only volume slider is media vol.

Oh, how annoying this is.

Do different companies devices have the same issue after Pie upgrade?

Even with 47.2.A.6.30 (Jan. 23019) the homescreen of my XZ1 keeps freezing, not even the clock widget is working correctly, push messages are delivered with hours of delay or not at all. It's a shame.

Androyd 9.0 is the most buggy and worst of all. Androyd 8.0 works better. Androyd 9.0 does not work NFC data transfer function. Androyd 9.0 hangs, or does not transmit data. Rebooting does not help.

Rule of thumb: "If it ain't broke don't update! Newer is not necessarily better!"

Rollback to Android 8
