On my 5th copy of this lens over the years... added it back after a long stretch without one.

Was looking at the bokeh quality at F1.8 and when stopped down. I found that on my particular copy, that around F2.5, the bokeh smoothed out while still maintaining a shallow DOF. I can only imagine its due to the shape the blades make and stopped down it improves? I'm not sure. Maybe someone else can answer why the bokeh improves when I stop down the aperture a little? Wide open at F1.8 I find the bokeh to be nervous and busy looking, hallmark of a cheap lens with few aperture blades. A common thing with a $50 lens like this. But, stopping down to F2.5, the lens looks quite nice, bokeh is much smoother. So while the lens is acceptable at F1.8, I find it much more pleasing at F2.5, while still looking pretty good from a DOF stand point in this example, the DOF loss is so minimal it's not missed or noticed really.

Bokeh at F1.8:

Bokeh at F2.5 (much better, smoother out of focus quality stopped down)

Another example of out of focus area quality of the blur:

F1.8: (lots of sharp hard edges on out of focus features looking busy and nervous)
