My time with Android 9 so far.

So flashed my phone using another carriers firmware.


I must say I am enjoying it. 

All my functions work flawlessly i.e. WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, calls, screen brightness, fingerprint scanner, speakers, all apps are running/updating etc.


Battery is VERY good!!!!!!


Yes it is missing key features but I'm not too worried about that. All issues in the forum regarding this update I am not experiencing at all.


I would recommend flashing using xperifirm and newflasher. It will wipe your phone so be sure to backup. Here is a tutorial I used. Farelly easy to use.


I'm thinking that the OTA is a "dirty flash" that's why problems are occurring.


Also I'm using Lawnchair launcher which adds to experience.
