I think power management of chips inside the new phones probably influenced iOS 11 design, thus causing problems with the older phones.

Healthy discussion of snake oils stories as well. Unless the forum is more strict than China is “perceived to be”.

The genius then apologised that a provider they dealt with wouldn't look after the issues, and said they didn't wish me to be without a phone while it was being fixed, and gave me a new phone to place my own sim card in.
Had no idea the Samsung Store would laugh at me, when I walked in hoping for similar service.

Yeah, they handle customer relations well, but when it comes to technical issues, you wonder what their definition of geniuses and experts are. I only get maybe 50% success rate from them, the other just required a fresh install. And they respond like programmed robots.

As per my recent post in another thread, I have been busy with work/shows and other experimentations, I will get back to it soon.

This evening I caught up with the local health store naturopath/dietician etc chick to check up on her now long term experience/findings of using my modded Sony elcheapo earbud headphones.
The result is overwhelmingly positive preference for the treated pair, and other associated observations that I won't go into here.

Dan.
