    Received my 7.2 yesterday but I will be exchanging it tomorrow because the front camera doesn't work. It was an easy job to connect to the Nokia Chat Support and they had me do some tests such as clearing the camera cache, soft reset and eventually a factory reset but all for naught with regards to the camera.

    While waiting I'm putting it through some testing. Definitely has whole day battery. Just finished watching/casting a concert video off youtube that lasted 1.5 hours. The HDR screen is awesome, I'm easily adapting to Pie coming from Oreo. If my exchange phone is faultless I'm definitely keeping it.

    BTW signal levels both Wi-Fi and cellular are better than my Keyone. Main camera is pretty good, portrait mode is awesome, wide angle is good and night mode is good but for best results you'll need to do some color correction.

    I'll be back with more after I get the replacement. Nokia 7.2 Experience-notable-00005.jpegNokia 7.2 Experience-notable-00004.jpeg

    The number of apps you have is not related to the amount of RAM you have left. Only running apps are.

    To some extent you are correct, but there are apps running in the background as well.

    Did you try safe mode if the camera works?

    Indeed. Even tried installing a different camera app. Even during setup of Android on the phone where it asks if you want to use face unlock there was no indication that the front camera was functional. Going for the exchange tomorrow.

    Just an update for today's battery usage. Definitely lasts a day with about 8 hours of SOT. No heaving gaming but I did seek in a few rounds of bowling lolNokia 7.2 Experience-notable-00007.jpeg

    Fingerprint sensor is fast and accurate and I'm liking the ability to use it to scroll down the notications and settings bar.

    Adaptive screen brightness is quick but not jarring fast.

    Audio volume is loud enough but it is quite tinny (no bass) at full volume. However while using the VLC app I adjusted the equalizer to cut down the high frequency and raise the bass levels. Quite the improvement.

    The 7.2 is definitely slippery in hand. Just ordered one of these... Nillken brand from China, hard case but with a grippy back. Doesn't seem to have spyware preinstalled LOL! Nokia 7.2 Experience-notable-00009.jpeg

    Used my index fingers to set the fingerprint sensor. It is insanely fast to recognize the print once set up.
    Once you are in the fingerprint sensor will recognize any finger for bringing down the notication/settings bar.

    Exchange went super quick and easy at Best Buy! In and out in 5 minutes. I now have a functional front camera, which works quite well btw.

    I have experienced a couple of hangs lasting about 10 seconds or so which I attribute to the BlackBerry Launcher. Will keep an eye on it and try Nova if the issue returns or continues. Ram usage hovers around 55-60%. Coming from the Keyone that is very good.
