Yeah color OS 12. There is only smart 5G ootion which auto switch between 5G and 4G. There isn't any option to turn off 5G for good.

Anyone with playstore, are u able to install CHROME from playstore?

I can install any app, but for CHROME, when i hit install button it just doesn't work...

I don't want to install chrome from the app market (oppo app), prefer to get it from playstore.

Other than that, google apps seems to work fine!!

BTW: Just got 12A.07 update... so fast this one came! 2 updates since i got the phone yesterday.

Thx guys! my chrome installed today... dunno why first time kept getting stuck...

11A.07 seems no different from 11A.06

BTW,

1. what case u all using? Where did u get them?

So far I found some options:
a) china cases (price range $7-20+ taobao/shopee/aliexpress)
b) Official case (price range $60 - $128 for ready stock from local seller)

Also, does it make sense to peel off the stock screen protector for 3rd party one?

Using the original Oppo casing ...quite nice I must say . Usually factory preinstalled one is the best .
Btw,are you guys facing the 5G issue?Not able to turn off for good.

60 is just the case no charger as preorder for Jan 13 from local seller. 128 is case only from shop... But maybe the shop one include charger?

The case worth it?

Nice to find a user group here.

Share some tips I discovered.
- 3 locations to make sure you will not get delayed notifications, try one by one until it works else i dont know how much it affects batter.
1, settings - battery - advanced settings - Optimize battery.
don't allow for apps you want prompt notifications. apps like whatsapp, this is enough. restart of phone might be needed.
2, Settings - apps - Autolaunch and associated launch
enable for apps you really want prompt notification which optimize battery doesnt fix. max only allow 5 apps so must be selective. restart of phone might be needed.
3, multitasking screen, 3 dots, Lock
To have app always in memory.
- for apps like microsoft teams, need to do all 3 things for me to not have delayed notifications. Strange thing is, i connected huawei watch GT2 to it, and my watch is prompt in notifications but not the oppo find n........

default to deny notifications for most apps
- initially i am unable to activate one-token in OCBC app, but found out by default, most app you installed default to "deny" notifications. by going into app management of the ocbc app and allowing notification, ocbc app one-token can be registered.

Gpay and pay wave works
- once you add your payment method into gpay, 2 ways to paywave working.
1, long hold power button will show the default credit card there. if its not there, go to settings - system settings, power menu and turn on show cards.
- you can also settings - connections - nfc, once you enable it and choose gpay,no matter what screen you are on, tapping the phone on a CC machine or mrt gate will auto pay with gpay.

set full screen for all apps
- go to settings - main screen - display size to configure aspect ratios or full screen for individual apps.

netflix and disney+
can google for their apk to install. no issue running them.

Screen switching
Settings - main screen - screen switching, turning on the option to swipe up to continue app after folding phone is great. especially when the aspect ratio of the front screen is still very usable.

Wireless charging.
the hitbox of the wireless charging spot is hard to align, and wireless charging on my samsung wireless charger is very slow, as in, 20% after 8 hours. anyone have issues with wireless charging on anything other than Oppo's wireless charger?

hot tip:

i like to permanently use the landscape mode as the main orientation (flip phone 90 degrees to use whe open)... i find its a bit better than the normal.

Sometimes the big screen black TEXT BOXES appear when typing stuff into apps text fields, quite annoyng. But when go 90degrees is ok.

Actually for the stock case, does the case protect camera hump from touching table when flat on the table?

Good to know that Google apps working flawlessly. I should be getting my hands on the 12/512 this sunday!

Question: The 15W wireless charging need to use Oppo wireless charger to work at full speed? Or any aftermarket will work too?
