1) Source codes can't be released by Blackview. That's because policies regarding out developer/tech team. I can't share more details about that with you, as these are classified. i'm sorry, i hope you'll understand.
2) I know and understand what you are saying... but we don't have unlimited resources. We can't stop focusing on the development of new (and always better) phones.
3) As stated many times, our internal development roadmaps are very very dynamic. Our deadlines are dynamic. I know that BIG companies have sharp deadlines (..and not always..), but we can't be compared to them at the moment. We will improve and get better. We are not Microsoft.
4) Your disappointment on the Bv8000 pro is a bit excessive in my opinion. I use my BV8000 pro as my primary phone since one year. It isn't perfect, but definitely far from "being unusable" as you state.
First, thank you for your answers.
1/ I can't understand, but I'm not surprised. I imagine there is no point on asking why, and honestly when a company can't explain something why they can't release something tha should be open source, I think they're hiding something in the code that they don't want me to see (huge loss of trust). Anyway, everybody looses in this situation.
2/ I'm not asking you to stop doing it, but to change the way you are doing it. If you don't have time to focus on software, let other people do it (the community is for free...).
Sorry but when you release several "flagship" phones per year, it's normal you can't keep up with the software so if you want your customer happy, let them have the code to deal with it. You can't have a small team, release 10+ phones a year and have them to work seamlessly. Once again, your strategy is hurting everyone.
3/ There is no point on arguing that, we won't hear eachother. We'll see how it turns out for you !4/ I can't use it on Oreo for obvious reasons... As for Nougat, security patches are from july 2017. Two big vulnerabilities were found around september 2017 (BT + WPA2) that are still not patched as of today and I work in a restricted area where security is controlled. So no, I can't safely use my device on a daily basis. Maybe I am a demanding user, but that does not make my point invalid. I need safety patches to be updated on a regular basis, and I naively thought Blackview could do that. I guess I was wrong, hence my disapointment.
