    • Finally got an answer 48 hours later. Stay tuned and will see what's happen next..  Slion, wow, 2 broken devices...  2020 is the baddest year if my life..   My health isn't very good + everything (COVID) and now, the phone!  That is for my wife, supposed to give my phone to celebrate your wedding anniversary...  It was a surprise when she saw it, she was very happy, but now have to return it, her face touch the ground along with her tears...  
    • I now have cut away almost the entire right side of my P20 silicon case. I believe the small cutout for the power button was shifting around in tight pockets activating the screen by accident. When I took out my phone with an active flashlight this morning, i finally had enough. Been running around without any fingerprints set up the last two days. Slider also works better now. Still, this opens up new ways for dust and lint to sneak into the back of the case.
    • Apkmirror hosts modded apk's wihout the often restrictions. In this case it bypasses some checks, also used for other devices: https://community.philipsprojection.com/t/disney-plus-app/2597/19
    • I've seen this with another small company that a bigger investor demanded a physical action with a notification for any kind of unusual money transfer in order to prevent money loss or theft. It could very well be an internal policy with the same reasons since they can't risk any loss of money. What I find most difficult here is that the order doesn't seem to be cancelled until the refund is done. The worst thing for Fxtec would be that the device gets delivered and has to be sent back since it wouldn't be needed anymore. That would be a huge loss of money that would be easy to prevent. I still hope that you guys get your money back very soon without having to force it back.
    • Try apkmirror for Netflix. I haven't tried straight download from Netflix website, so it might be newer version or something. It is also possible that Magisk is needed to hide root, to make Netflix work. I haven't tried without Magisk. About Magisk, I am not a guru, far from it. Not an android guru either, but I have some experience in Linux systems, which help a bit. But Magisk itself is quite straightforward stuff to install and set up (apply MagiskHide for apps you don't want to see root). The props config is little bit trickier, you need a terminal app to set it up but there's quite good instructions in xda. Props config is needed for banking and some other apps, like my work mail account. Netflix should work without it also. About the safety, I don't really know. Some people are really against Magisk, and I believe they have good reasons for it. I personally haven't found it break anything or even having any effect to any other stuff. In my device, it just does what I need it to do: hides root from the apps I want. Of course I cannot be sure about what other things it does behind my back, but I believe that Google itself collects more of my personal information than any particular app can ever do. About battery drain, I haven't noticed any. I have about two days of battery usage, but I believe it is more about how heavily you use the device than what apps you have installed.  As a last word, I don't recommend you to do anything. Do as you said and read enough about the stuff you are going to play with, and then make your decision whether to install or not. Google has been trying hard to prevent Magisk from working, and even thhough it works for now, it is quite sure that it will be prevented permanently some day.
