I’m using Brave 1.0.42 on my Samsung Galaxy (forget which model exactly, but the phone lists itself as an SM-G935V) with Android v7. The ad blocking just completely stops for what appears to be all sites. I have tried reloading pages, closing and reopening Brave, and forcing shutdowns on Brave to correct this, but nothing short of completely restarting the phone works to rectify this situation.
Thanks for reporting. We have an issue logged for this, it can be tracked here: https://github.com/brave/browser-android-tabs/issues/566
