    Awesome update, users should also find it easier to work with the raw files from the camera :)

    This is an older post that was edited. What is different from the original post? Also battery life was mentioned as improved and everyone is complaining about battery life since this update.

    Nice! UPDATED! Too late to play with it now though. That'll have to wait for tomorrow.
    I do see that HiYa has been upgraded. Recently I have been getting notifications to update it,
    but then when it tried to install it would fail. Hopefully this update fixes that.

    Not sure what you mean, but the update for public users just went live within the past hour. From B25 to latest B32.

    The post was posted at 12am and then editted at 12:02 , likely due to a miss spelling or something

  • Fantastic. I was hoping for quick tiles and an adjustable night mode. And multiuser was always a weird absence. Now we just need some clarity on Oreo.

    Sorry I misunderstood @DoppelgangerD.

    Awesome to see an update :)

    Amazing! Thanks for keeping our device so updated. Any links for a flashable ZIP for us with unlocked bootloaders?

    This is awesome news. It's great to see that ZTE continuous to hear users feedback and improve on the software front. The fact that we are still getting software update and improvements and new features is something that is quite rare for a phone that is an year old.

    Exactly. We may not get frequent updates, but at least we get meaningful ones.

  • fooofooo Posts: 21 ✭✭✭✭

    Updated fine here. No idea what quick tiles was before this update but now there's a whole bunch of new options I can choose from various apps, very nice!

    That and the amazingly annoying notification tone fix, yay! Plus the hiya fix. So good, thanks!

    IMO and you've seen my complaints... Modem performance is back to b29 marshmallow performance... Finally!

  • J0hnnyM0nkJ0hnnyM0nk MeridenPosts: 1 ✭✭

    IDK what happened but in July it was like 90 something if not a 100 degrees out and my phone was blazing hot after that my battery been overheating constantly I just decided to factory reset and I check for an update after that and just got this I hope this update helps me and everyone out and I have to say the amount of updates this phone has received is impressive for a lesser known company others should take note of that

  • hollaphollap Wisconsin USA Posts: 6,847 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Well done ZTE. Some great enhancements in this update!

  • redbirdredbird Gotham CityPosts: 23 ✭✭✭✭

    Great, update seems to have gone well.
    Hiya updated through the playstore and it looks like the full app now is installed with access to all the settings, nice.

  • jasonejasone Tennessee Posts: 1,283 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    It certainly took awhile but it was worth it. So glad to have quick setting tiles in this update and enhancements to night mode.

  • acatrusacatrus Posts: 221 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for the updates. But is the phone still with L3 certification

  • benkoresbenkores Staten Island, NYPosts: 315 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Nice job ZTE! Looks like a meaningful update for those on stock.

    Kernel source please?

    I think at this point I would say that L3 is not coming. I could always be wrong, but I am not getting my hopes up.

  • samwichsesamwichse Posts: 32 ✭✭✭✭

    Anyone else getting the same version number as before for the update?

    Mine says:

    Current version: A2017UV1.1.0B25 Update version: A2017UV1.1.0B25, Size 793.24MB

    But then lists all the stuff that B32 is supposed to have.

    Except, of course, camera2 API support and on-screen button support (the two things I wanted :-(, oh well).

    I don't need on screen buttons, but I did want Camera2 API support.

    Mine said the same. It will be B32 after it updates.

    Yes! Updating right now! Just got the alert on my phone :) I was hoping for Oreo... but this is a step in the right direction :)
