    No, no issues here, seems to be functioning as pre update. When was your update?

    Any recommendations on getting the glass replaced in the Penrith area?

    Somehow smashed the front glass, dunno how but i managed it and its pretty damn annoying.

    If it's AU stock, get it replaced from Samsung as it was actually cheaper than getting it repaired 3rd party (was quoted double to what Samsung offers). You just need to provide a copy of your receipt.

    Prices here: http://www.samsung.com/au/support/screen-replacements/ .

    It took <48 hours from drop-off to pick up. they also replaced my battery during the "service" :)

    Just don't click on it? Are you accidentally hitting the button?

    I thought maybe I was doing it wrong, so pushed the soft plastic part into my ear :lol:

    Nope, still wrong, but believe it or not, it stuck better!

    I flipped my iPhone 7 and picked up a mint S8 yesterday, it's freakin' glorious and that screen is just amazing. Just have to get used to android.

    Accidentally hit yes to upgrade to oreo the other morning, unlocked the phone at 4am to check something and when i woke up it had updated.

    Now most apps seem to create a icon in the top left-hand corner or end up with notifications be it for facebook video even if ive closed chrome, the spotify screen remains even if i close it as well in the locked screen notifications:thumbdn:

    Seems sluggish as well especially if i get a notification inbetween something itll stutter.
