I found a trick by myself. The problem is that the notification channel on android oreo reguarding an application "prevails" on the settings within the application itself, in this case whatsapp. If we want, as in my case, to receive notifications of a new message only in the notification bar (without pop-up on the screen) and without sound, it will not be enough to adjust the settings only within the application, but we will have to do it in the new "notification channels" introduced with oreo. However, there is one however, if we set the notification when a new message arrives on "low" (without sound and without visual interruption) at the next message, Oreo will change "by itself" this setting on high , with sound and pop-up screen. Even within the application itself the settings will be changed with the sound on, while those regarding the pop-up notification will remain the same, although the pop-up will be displayed theanyway. The only way to prevent Oreo from overwriting and shaking our settings is this: 1) Adjust the desired settings within the application (no sound, vibration on, NO pop-up) then go to the notification channel of whatsapp and set the importance of the message received on "high", then click on it and change the ringtone to "none". In this way we will to not receive the pop-up on screen notification and settings will be respected. It seems to work, although this morning the urgency of the notification was back on "urgent". Again changed, and seems to be back to normal now. Let me know your experience about that.

A joy so far. Gorgeous screen. Fingerprint scanner a bit quirky to setup at first. I am a lefty butI frequently hold the phone in my right had. I've setup my left index and right thumb. Left index fails often when the phone is in its case. Right thumb never fails. Haven't used motion eye or 3DCreator yet. I don't much like Nougat so installed oreo immediately. On the 5.51 update. Battery life seems low but I suspect it will improve. down to 28% after only 16 hours. I did play some Asphalt on it though LOL

You can register any finger as you probably know. i register almost all my fingers so i can unlock without even having to pick up my phone.

my battery life on oreo has been great. i consistently get 5.5-6 hours of on screen time. I have my brightness on automatic adjust and spend most of my days under indoor lighting. I have yet to need to charge my phone before i have to go to bed.

Glad you're enjoying it Denty.

Something's up with GSM Arena. They posted a video comparing the front video camera of the XZ Premium against other phones and when there is a bright window in the background the XZ Premium darkens the persons face almost a LOT.

I decided to test my XZ Premium and it works perfectly with no issue. I took a video and also posted it over on GSM Arenas comments section. Here it is:

So... anyone want to guess what's happening? Is their phone defective? Did they never update it? I even did another video with the sun itself shining through a window and even then the results weren't nearly as bad as what they're showing.
