A5 pro is advertised as having a 4150mAh battery, but cpu-z reported it as 3450mAh. Can anyone confirm this?

Active use, maybe half a day. I use charger with USBC power delivery (PD). With USBC-MicroUSB cable, I can recharge to 100% pretty fast.

Does anyone know how to have the "swipe fingerprint scanner to show/unshow notifications panel" functionality working on that phone? It's my first phone with Pie and browsing quickly the internet showed me that it is a recurring issue with a lot of phones running on Pie so not sure who is to blame on that one. It was one of my favorite Oreo functionality and it will be such a bummer if I have to live without it. In the stock settings the Swipe fingerprint sub-settings is returning a blank screen and every third party app I tried didn't work at all. I can live with a sub-par camera but please don't let me reach the top of that huge screen with my other hand every god damn time!!!

Anyone noticing their wifi mac address keeps changing after each reboot? this is an issue as my workplace requires us to log our mac addresses for an added layer of security.

Mac addresses or IP addresses?

If it's IP, you can use a free app like Static IP to stop the IP from changing.

I've used it on another phone in the past and it worked well.

Now that you mentioned it, I had a look. The wifi mac address does indeed change. However you don't even need to restart the phone, simply turning wifi off and back on will generate a new one. The first 6 characters are always the same (00:08:22) but the last 6 characters are random every time.
Did UIMDIGI leave some sort of mac spoofing setting on when putting out their software updates? Or is just some bug?
Perhaps UMIDIGI will fix it in a software update once it's brought to their attention.

Possible that address wasn't totally legible. A lot of buyers are saying they don't know how the phone reached them because the address on the package was faded and or smudged.

Apparently is not an "issue", it is actually a functionality that Google left only for the Pixel. If you do not have a Pixel, some launchers can do it for you, but depends on the launcher, not the phone. At least that's what a Google search tells me...

That makes sense. Thanks
