iPhone or Samsung may hopefully remedy the frustrations over Sony's lack of foresight in the screen department. It's a shame Sony (formerly a name associated with quality) has dropped down in both trust & reliability. I feel the manufacturer should be held responsible.

Many junk apps such as Facebook, in fact I'd thought all of them, had been stopped upon my own Chinese manufactured ZTE phone, although this very day I saw an auto-update had been performed to Facebook app installer.:eek:
What? On closer examination, besides the Facebook app (deactivated) there remain 2 additional 'pre-installed' Adroid System apps. Facebook app installer & Facebook app manager, each still in operation, & acting independently from those installed manually from The Google Play store which is set to Off for "Auto-download updates". Apart from the warning "Stopping this app my cause your system to have problems", I have experienced none; and both apps are now stopped.:)

I too use ESET Mobil Security as well as Firefox Focus Browser, so your share is a boost to helping me to feel even a little smarter.:cool:

Thank you for sharing, and I shall hope those screen problems remain this Sony's only shortcomings for as long as you must keep it.;)

A year or so left of my contract, I might pay a little more a month and get a new contract with a new phone. You're right about Sony being known to be trustworthy & reliable but this just doesn't cut it, won't be getting another Sony phone.

The best thing of ZMA is that it doesn't create problems even if other protection app is installed. I have used it along with Eset, BD and Kaspersky without any problem.

Thanks for your feedback @jogs, however running 2 real-time apps at the same time could cause also some conflicts; ZMA is better than ESET according to my experience: fast scans, great detection ratio, powerful and secure antikeylogging module and now also web protection module which lets users also to whitelist websites.

Got my XR a few days ago. I'm more than impressed to say the least.
You just missed out on a huge price cut for the iPhone XR.

"On Amazon, the price of the iPhone XR dropped from £799.00 to no less than £798.99, which means you save no more, no less than £0.01. If you’re an American reader, this means $0.013. "
