    I'm using the global model on AT&T with no issues.
    SMS and MMS texting works without issue.
    Calls are loud and clear.
    Getting LTE speeds.
    Camera is outstanding.
    Screen is vivid and bright.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    IR blaster works just fine. I really never thought I'd use that, but I do all the time now.

    There are no LEDs for notifications on this phone. At first, I was pretty frustrated by this, but it's not an issue now. If you have a smartwatch or activity tracker that's capable of getting notifications, you'll get used to having no LEDs on the phone really quickly. Still, I think it was a bonehead move by Huawei to get rid of them.

    That's a bit ridiculous. Different if they upgraded the AOD to show all notifications then remove the led like LG/Google etc

    Yep, I don't know why they keep their version of AOD so limited.

    My 2 complains of the 20x would be 1) always on display did not display notices for WhatsApp or any app [or is it a setting issue? Would like to hear from anyone who could make it to do it?] 2) my photo album names keep turning off out of a sudden. See pic attached. Would like to hear from any who could tell me it's me, not the phone?

    This is normal for Huawei's Always On Display. It only shows clock/date, calls, sms, music playing and battery. No email or 3rd party notifications can be displayed...much to all our frustration and constant requests for it

    As dov1978 said above, the AOD only displays Huawei's core apps. Bummer, I know.

    As far as the photos app goes, I use Google Photos, and have not had a similar issue as you are having. Are you using the Huawei stock gallery? If so, try using Google Photos.

    Thanks, will give it a try. The other thing about it was that when I changed to default lighter background, the album names came back

    That's strange. Not sure what would cause that. Must be an issue with EMUI handling dark mode.
    Let us know how Google Photos handles the issue if you decide to do that.
