Hello. I've noticed that on the root of the phone storage I have two folders called "shading" and "shading_otp". They are full of strange log file that start with the word "sensor_1". I tried deleting them and they got recreated and starting filling up again. I just wondered what they are? Does anyone else have these? Thanks

Yeah, I have these as well. Deleted them now and trying to figure out what creates them. Sounds like camera, but I took some pictures and nothing showed up. Neither did using the fingerprint scanner (which could also be a "sensor").

Ok, they are created on startup:

.audio_param
mtklog
shading
shading_otp

Guess they may have rushed their OTAs a bit and left some debug logging on. Gotta see what the upcoming update changes.

I get that you are joking, but in case someone thinks this is the case - at least in these folders there are only what looks like hex dumps with names like: sensor_1_align_cap_0_17x17_4608x3456.log

So it looks very much like some camera related logging. Doesn't prove someone isn't spying, of course, but at least not blatantly

Actually I have to say having a basically clean Android on a Chinese phone is a big advantage that many people who directly compare hardware fail to address. Not dealing with hard-coded weird keyboards, optimization apps, all sorts of alternative play markets and what not is pretty great.

Now back to our wait for the big fix update
