    I was going to say how nice it is for a company to have an open forum and respond correctly to issues raised (cough), but just had a look and can’t see a single mention of camera issues, so is this just a case of any news is good news..

    New Alife P1 Pro is even slower than my 4 years old Galaxy S3
    Skip to 2:00 to see the slowness.
    All other phone sent to reviewer most probably having higher spec (MT6735) compared to the one sold to consumer (MT6735M).
    It also overheats very much.
    This happens before and after the OTA update.
