Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Well, this upgrade has fixed the ‘phone won’t RING’ issue that I’ve had for about 5 months! Google eventually replaced Pixel 2 XL with a new unit, exact same issue persisted. Endless to & fro with idiots in Google customer ‘service’,(I use the term very loosely) in Manilla. Worse than useless


For Essential too. Already updated this morning.
