Before selling the device, try hard reset it 1st.

Backup all data to GDrive ---> Hard reset.

DO NOT restore from that backup. Start with fresh new setups. Check for latest OS/firmware updates. Next, install all vital apps and test for 7 days. If there is no improvement or bugs still exist, sell it off...

Yup, already did this. Those issues happened from earlier days which is before upgrading to A12. So when I received the OTA, I factory reset the phone and download important apps only. No improvement. laugh.gif

The fingerprint issue, Smart Lock, Google Assistant (not to mention the VoLTE issue, but it's different story) still there before and after upgrading & reset.

Well, the issues are not frequently triggers though so I can still use the phone as normal, but it annoys me when it does especially during crucial times.

Might test again later once I received the new phone.

HI. I'm on maxis, but never experience volte yet. sweat.gif

...Directd is selling at RM1,799 (8/128). manufactured 04/21. i believe mostly from this batch, unless Asus Malaysia has newer batches.

My 1+6 is 'dead'...have to decide a phone by tomorrow. thinking of Zenfone 8, OPPO Reno 7, Motorola edge 30 pro, vivo x70... rclxub.gif

If we wanna be on the safe side and receive full features of the device, invest on Galoxxx series...

Galoxxx series have 4 years major OS OTAs. So, if 5G is going to "really" happen within 4 years, we are surely be able to enjoy 5G (if it's affordable...)

IT Will take around 5 weeks to wait for the part to come from Taiwan. I waited that long.

Could you recommend me a SP which works well with the fingerprint scanner?

I tried a few but it does not detect my finger print.

If you have the link to purchase it do share with me.

mmm...i dont have any SP for now and dont think will apply one. my previous Oneplus 6 was on stock SP (i think just a normal film) since day one. no problem until it died on me.

for me, good case and higher all round bezel tat covers the screen and corners is minimum la.

I didn't use screen protector.

The fingerprint issue is random, sometimes it is really fast but other times it's slow / not matched.

I've searched around and one of the suggestion is to add same fingerprint multiple times, still same result.  sad.gif

Surprisingly mine has no issue with the fingerprint scanner. Could it be your finger is oily or too dry?

My major complain is the lack of high quality thin case. I mean really thin, carbon fibre case. This actually slightly negates the compactness of this phone.
Another thing is, the UI is not as smooth as I liked. It has micro stutters from time to time. Not sure it's because I use the lowest power CPU setting (manual).
