WOW… MY PHONE WAS STILL UNDER 7 DAYS REPLACEMENT AND THEY EVEN DIDNT EVEN WANT TO REPLACE IT? THAT WAS A FACTORY DEFECT!
    Issue: home button doesnt have default launcher option.
    They said that it was a system issue for all cherry flare S2 Not having Default launcher options when you press the home button…
