Serious question. Anybody update to Q and once in a while will get the screen glitch? It just happen to my phone. Is it the software or the hardware problem? If so, how do I check the warranty of my phone?

And another thing that I took note of is that after updating to Q. There's a 2 tone on my navigation gesture bar and my main screen. Isit normal or hardware problem as well?

Thanks in advance. Hope you guys get what I'm trying to say...

The 2 tone you're describing is most likely screen burn-in that only becomes apparent after the nav bar size changed in Android 10 due to gestures.. Switch back to standard 3 button set up and you'd not see the two tone but it's just a cosmetic fix (and aggravate the differential in screen burn-in rates between the nav bar row and the upper portion). Would be better to stick to gestures and hope that the burn-in becomes less obvious after some time.

Does anyone feel this is too good to be true?
Here pixel 2 not 3. Don't need to post all over.

So obvious it's a scam.

Singtel dash is not supported in Android 10.

I just got the notification.

Luckily I haven't update.

thinking of getting a p2xl at 339. anyone here already brought from wmart?

scrolling through the forum page it seems that p2xl is relatively problem free already.
so at 339 for a sd835 world phone with about 1+ year left of unlimited photo storage and potentially with 2 more years of android updates (assumption is that Android 11 will come to the device).
seems like a good buy no?

I wouldn't say problem free la. still the same main thing which is potential for screen issues. Like dead pixel or uneven tint. I bought 1 from them, and been using for a week or so. My friend bought 1 too after I did. Self collected, legit SG set, and looks to be new. It's quite easy to tell for 2 XL since the SKU on the box will say SG at the end, then it has that extra sticker with a barcode too that i've seen on Singtel P2XL, and the IMEI number of phone matches the box of course.

Not sure if it's legit sealed or not since the original sticker "seal" can be easily removed and pasted back. But the phone itself condition looks like they've never been used. Mine was left with like 2% battery too, so might be legit old stocks. it was running android 8.1 out of the box too.

Warranty wise, just take it with grain of salt. Because don't even know service centre will accept the receipt from them or not. But since the phone only came out in november 2017, and this has 2 years warranty, at least the next 2 months is safe. Or you can check the IMEI number (http://www.imeipro.info/check_lg.html) to see the date of manufacture, at least will have warranty till then. Mine was mid december 2017.

for that price i think it's a pretty decent buy looking at the prices on carousell for used sets. lol. Specs might not look amazing, but it still runs really well since it's stock Android. Like you said, still getting updates, still has original resolution uploads unlimited till 2021 January. It has stereo speakers too, IP68, and the camera can still go toe to toe or beat newer phones. Just that there's a risk that you might only have a few more months of warranty left, and that you really need to check the screen very carefully when buying. 1 dead pixel on a QHD screen is not that easy to spot at a glance. haha.

Also, they say LG service centre, but you can probably just go Aperia Mall to CTDI to service the phone instead. They might be less picky about the receipt?
