  1. Great UI. Smooth. Though, crashes quite a lot! Never happened prior to the update. System UI keeps crashing repeatedly. Please let me know if there’s a fix.

  2. Don’t do the update, after update the is a wifi connectivity issue, when ever you change the location with wifi(Saved) you have to reboot the mobile, Rebooting takes 5 mins which is huge, and don’t trust that sometime single reboot will not help you to connect the wifi.

    seconds, when ever you get call, sms, and any notification, screen automatically locked.

    Sometime i am feeling to throw the mobile down which I cannot do.

    Overall, Bad update, please fix this Blocker issues.
