    Thanks. I don't know why it is weird. Phones need protection and the front pocket is the viable option when seated.

    I will check it out next week. Since the phone companies seem to have forced constant upgrades by not allowing battery replacement, it only makes sense to buy one with a larger capacity to start with.
    Within two years it will probably suck and the whole phone will need to be disposed anyway.

    I know that most smart phones aren't designed for battery replacement, but I don't know of any company that doesn't allow battery replacement....
    It's not what you know, but who you know.

    I should have stated provide or something like that. If I can't change it in the back of a Ford, then the viability is limited.
    Are there companies that will change a battery for a fixed price and not void the warren T? I've heard enough stories that the manufacturers consider the battery to be acceptable until it has degraded rather too much.

    In general, your right to repair will extend to the battery. Any third party willing to do the replacement work should warrant it themselves.

    So far the phone is not too bad, but I'm not liking all the Google stuff the Oreos want to shove up my a$$.
    What do you use for a keyboard? The GBroad really sucks and no other option is pre-installed. Thanks.

    I having seen anything from Oreo that is forced onto my phone.

    I use the Google Gboard as my keyboard. Works fine for my needs.

    I don't know the 8 Oreo but it's possible that the differences are partly attributable to the Chinese phone vs the Korean phones I've used previously. Maybe the Korean phones have a more polished GUI that hides the Oreo Androids. The keyboard and messenger are very annoying. I don't think there is any option to change the messenger. I was able to install a 3rd party email client and the FireFoxes.

    My Gboard keyboard has brackets [], braces {}, and parentheses().

    Mugen used to offer double sized batteries, with a new back, for a lot of models. Now a lot fewer. P.O.

    The eBay and Amazon have sold various expanded capacity battery packs for years. I have three for the dead phone. Of course they can only be made for the phones that support removable batteries.

    The 5000mAh non-removable battery in the new phone is good for now.

    Great. It's far better than the basic GBORAD.
