    It does not work on my G6 Edge plus or on my wife's Apple 6+
    Mine doesn't do it...unless there is setting on android 7 that you turn on.

    Well there you go. It appears my Pixel has the same thing - mine is on, but still get a lot of numbers with no names attached... Interesting to see if the Spam comes up?

    We got our 1st XS in yesterday.
    Not bad having had a little play with it.
    I had originally ordered a XR for myself but have changed it back for the XS.
    Its smaller overall size makes it better for the pocket/travelling, the entire face now is used makes it much better to the eye and use.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    Can’t believe a new apple devices launch has taken this long to be covered in this thread.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Only was released 2wks ago as you may know.
    Stock wasn't available till last week or about.
    I've been away twice last 3wks no time arranging our replacements but now as you know.

    Perko, can't say anything on battery life - the one arrived was for my brother mine should arrive anytime soon.

    By the way, haven't had any battery short life issue with my 8+, I upgraded for 2 reasons, the wife needs an upgrade and those down the line in my fam get my late model handmedowns And more so these new models especially the XS is smaller overall but as mentioned the whole screen is now in use no black out edges as past models.
