Hi all,
I know i am meant to ask the online support about this but they cannot help me.

I have just got update .185 for the p30 pro, this was over 4gb in size.
I'm just wondering what this update does? it seems a rather large installation file.

Thank you in advance.

Vodafone Germany. But I bought the phone free / without simlock or any other vendor dependency.

July security patch some camera improvements and I cant remember what else it said for P30 version. No idea why it was so big (was for P30 too) but all works nicely so far.

@IOI-655321 it just seems a rather large update, normally these about about 500mb. @Amy can you shed any light on this?
Amy is on holiday until the end of the month I saw in another thread.

@Crawshaw09 - yeah, Amy gets time off. I saw your question about the download size, I think I've seen a response elsewhere in the community. Just can't track it down. Monday's can be a little crazy with moderation - even more so when Amy is off relaxing. So hopefully, I'll find it and get back to you shortly. 😎

@Crawshaw09 - sorry thought I'd replied 😔- I couldn't find the comment I'd seen. But if I recall correctly, it basically stated - it's a big update, hence the size. Sorry I couldn't provide further details. As @Tboy2000 states, there are some important updates included.

Hello, any changes worth updating? Is this monster glasses support an app, can be disabled or not?

Thank You.
Pawel
Monster glasses is a device. Nothing needs to be disabled.
Yes I know but there can be an app with update to manage those glasses, and this what I'm asking.
Is there?

Thx

No additional app.
There are changes to the camera e.g. enabling night mode for front cam and other "optimizations" (not that I'd notice a big change to the previous .183 in back camera images..)
And, of course but still important 1. Aug security patch level.

Night mode for front cam is less than spectacular. It's quite hard to see a difference to the normal photo..

Can u take a pic with the screen recorder on ?

OK, in really dark scenes the night mode is slightly better - but nowhere near to the effect you see with the back camera or the magic that GCam does on supported devices.

This is with the normal "photo" mode :



And here the night mode:

That is poor. Why not just put an option to toggle the flash on? Rather than off and auto...

Oh, there IS a toggle for flash set to off, auto and also always on with the front cam now.
Is that new?
Userlevel 5

Yep and the front camera I only see auto and off.

Yes, this arbitrary batch releases really are annoying.
I like it as it is on the iPhones where all user get the update at the same time.
