  1. I installed the android 9 software update and I’ve had nothing but issues with it. UI crashes and app loader crashes as well. Any way to get The previous version back on?

  2. Man, Google should be ashamed of themselves for referring to this phone as an Android One device. Does not feel anywhere close to #1.

    Good device overall, I love mine w/ Magisk|TWRP. But an embarrassing track record overall.
