    Today my phone informed me that it was waiting to install the "latest" android version 9. Just installed it and wondered if anyone had any issues or other interesting things I should know. So far the phone received a call fine but I have little other experience yet. Of course all the icons look different so that will take some getting used to.

    OK I now have my first frustration with this "upgrade". When working at my desk I leave my phone on its wireless charger and use it as my desk clock. It used to display the time on the screen always when the screen was off (sleeping?). It now only shows when I touch it making it useless. Anyone know how to fix this back to what it was? I want always on to be just that.

    Thanks for the response - I had the always on display turned on BUT didn't know there was another page where I had to select ALWAYS instead of tap to show. All fixed now.

    Me too so far. It has been so long since looking at a different android update I notice a lot more things this time - most notably the color on the "always on" screen!

    Came here hoping to find a fix for the same question I had. Thanks, all fixed!
    PS love the night mode and I definitely see a longer battery life.

    I found something that's isn't working since the update. My live message will not work.
    Says; "live message app stopped working". Any ideas??

    I'm sure you cleared app data but just throwing it out there in case...no updates from the app pending ?

    Yes did that, thanks. The other choice, screen write, notes, translate etc etc are working. Live notes is the only one that isnt. Maybe a update will follow.
    EDIT; I restarted the phone and like magic it's working again. Thanks again!

    I apparently have become a bit brain dead after the update - I can not seem to be able to close one running app without closing them all. I used to be able to hit the icon that displays all the running apps and hit the X to close the one I want gone. I now have a display that scrolls horizontally but I can't find an X anywhere to close the desired app. I can click it, then close it from the app, then return to the list and repeat but that is way too much clicking. The close all works fine. Ideas?
