Oh shit, I may have missed a step. As soon as I get the phone charged, I’ll try to be a bit more thorough. Language trouble or minor interface bugs here and there are not a showstopper for me. Thanks again, los.
About battery life. I had the phone fully charged and after about 8 hours it was at 77 %. That’s a lot better than I expected. I had mobile data, wifi and BT off. If the phone can reliably do calls and messaging, I’m prepared to carry a battery pack with me.
Another finding is that sometimes - like when reading an SMS - the GUI/DE seems to restart or something. When that happens, the screen blanks and I think I’ve seen a blinking cursor in top corner and after a couple of seconds it is at the lock screen again.
