    I can barely believe it myself, but the combination of a non bloated installation of Oreo, Nova Launcher, and a non root ad blocker (DNS66). For the first time in my Android experience, back to the DroidX, I'm not going to root this phone.

    To my surprise, I am completely satisfied with this phone. Oh and the battery life had been stellar.

    Awesome my friend... Though I'd suggest later on down the road trying DU Rom...

    Incredible support with all stock options plus many many tweaks...

    Run with it stock non root though its a great phone
