SQT is where questions go to die so I'll try here.

Anyone else having Smart Lock location trouble, or just me?
So I've set my phone to stay unlocked at home with Smart Lock. Location setting is High Accuracy. But over the past few months, I leave the house and quite a while later (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes over an hour later) I go to use my phone and it unlocks with just a swipe, no pattern needed. Even though it's been a long time and I'm nowhere near home. I'm quite worried about the security aspect of this, obviously.
If I change the Location setting to Device (GPS) Only, it improves things quite a lot. But it never stays that way. After a few days the problem is bad again, and when I go to Location settings, it appears to have switched back to High Accuracy all by itself. This has happened multiple times.
My sister has the same phone model, on the same update, and is having the exact same problem. Moto X Play, SIM-free, 6.0.1. UK. Anyone else experiencing this?

Many thanks for the replies!

For context, my phones up until now have been HTC Desire X and Microsoft Lumia 535... Even the Mi A1 will be a huge step-up. The U Ultra's SD821 may not be the SD835, but it's still good (just like the LG G6).

Here is the thing, the Mi A1 is a great offer on a budget but I do want the Nokia 8... Just not sure if I really need such an expensive phone. On one hand Nokia 8 is much better but on the other I'd probably just be fine with the Mi A1.

That is why the U Ultra looks like such a great offer, one that kinda came out of nowhere, appearing as a good "balanced middle" choice... For that Price, on the cheaper end, it's fantastic and I like the look of the phone. I really don't care about the lack of a headphone jack. Is the battery life really an issue?

im getting a new phone and i'm willing to put in the cash.

i'm considering an S8. i like samsung but hate touch wiz (i know you can use another launcher). will there be an s9 anytime soon?

i've been using an apple now, and i don't mind getting an iphone 8. (since i'm using an iphone 5, the upgrade will be worth it).

i was considering a google pixel, but pixel 2 seems apple-tier, and i rather get an apple.

Maybe it's already formatted as internal storage?
If I remember correctly, when you first insert a card, it makes you decide whether to use it as internal or portable.

Portable = just like an SD card or USB drive plugged into your computer
Internal = treats it as a continguous part of the phone storage. Meaning you can't take it out and put it back in casually, you can't dleiberately save stuff there. But as long as you keep it in, it's combines its space with the phone's space as one continuous space.

I use mine as external/portable, which is why it doesn't show portable as an option. It's already portable. So the only option I have is to change it by 'format as internal'.

So maybe yours is already internal so your only option is chnaging it to external.

Typing this from a V30. It's really nice, I like the size a lot. It feels like it's inbetween the S8 and S8+ in terms of size to me. Audio is great, screen is great, camera is pretty good but LG's optimizations are kinda fucky so it's just pretty good, I believe Samsung's cameras are better.

Battery wasn't what I expected on the first day of usage, but that's likely because I waa fussing over it and playing with all the camera features and shit. Today has been better, it's still at 26% right now after 12 hours of on time with fairly regular usage, and some heavier usage towards the end of the day (Native 2:1 content looks amazing on the screen).

I only finally jumped on the V30 because my carrier had it for $400 off. I'm still undecided on the camera and battery, but otherwise I'm very happy with it so far.

Not sure. I got the plus, myself. The plus has tons of ROMs but since moto hasn't released Oreo yet, a lot of the Oreo ROMs are in alpha right now. I'm sticking with AOSP-CAF 7.1.2 personally because it is fast as fuck, and with EX kernel this is the kind of sot I get (over 7 hours with 38% battery left) and the plus comes with a turbocharge cable and wall wart in the box so 0%-100% charge takes about 45 mins.

sony's cameras are that good, almost every flagship device uses sony sensors, that said the IMX400 in the XZ1 isn't as good as the pixel's but you won't notice a difference in day to day use,

they also have the same 2700mah battery, which is good enough for a day of fairly heavy use.

Can someone tell me the best way to change the icons in Android?

Get a phone with quickcharge
Without this you'll be stuck charging for way more often and it will end up being an "overnight charge" every single night where as with quickcharge you could fill up your phone from 30% to 100% in like 45 minutes. The bigger the phone battery the more you have to charge, I had a k6000pro with a 6000mah battery and it took like 6+ hours to charge to full.

A reasonably new phone with way more efficient processor to what was available in 2014, your standard s8/g6 will last way longer than a big battery phone from a few years ago because they use way less power, even if you run it full brightness, AOD, 1400p etc etc on all the time you'll still end up with more battery and SOT per day than any older phone that claims to have a "big battery"

Quickcharge and a battery bank that has quickcharge will be way better than any kind of multiple battery messing around, you'll have to charge them up eventually anyway

I guarantee you any of the latest flagships with a 3000mah battery will outdo any phone from 2014 or earlier regardless of how big their battery is, whether you have 6000mah in one battery or 3000 twice with a backup one.

So my current phone is the Galaxy S7 and I kinda regret getting it. Not much to do with the phone itself it does everything I want just fine but I feel like I got on the "newest flagship therefor best phone" bandwagon and dished out more then I needed for a phone.

Any recommendation for something more 'medium range' that can last me more then 2 years. I don't do any crazy shit with my phone seeing as I want it to be reliable above all else.
