  1. That clearly sounds like a bug (so moved the comments in here), but COULD be another aspect of the known bug that some links are messed up...
  2. We have had this spread in various threads, but perhaps it would be nice to get it gathered. If you ask me none really work super well. The build in has its benefits, but are quite simple. The big ones like Nova, does not really work well with Landscape nor keyboards. Usable, but not really good. But those being used to a specific third party launcher, that supports landscape, could continue to do so. I just use the stock, as the pros outweighs the caveats of its simplicity to me. ADD: I strongly suggest to change the Android setting under Settings, System, Gestures, "Swipe up on home", to Off, as this works poorly IMHO, requiring a REALLY long swipe, or a double swipe(!) to get to the apps list in portrait. But a matter of taste obviously. The clever thing about the build in launcher is that it divides the desktop in two groups of icons, and then displays these groups side by side or one above the other, so widgets are neither cramped nor stretched on rotation, like almost all other launchers do. The caveat of that is that you can not have a widget crossing the centre of the screen, it must stay within one of the halves.
  3. As far as what I know the only relevant we got recently is this but that was quite pessimistic it seems only expecting stock assigned by the end of next week, and it seems that at the least a fair portion of those have already been emailed today. Earlier batches via warehouse took about two weeks from stock assigned to it arrived on the doorsteps in Europe. You can see some examples browsing in this, Mine took 15 days. Four days between tracking code and delivery to DK.
  4. Here we go again with the accusation, just wind this thread back about 100 pages or so, so we do not need to all repeat ourselves.
  5. 1: Yes - at the least I can not imagine it 2: Clearly possible for the lower part. A bumper for the Huwei P20 Pro would be a good one to modify 3: The problem is that there is very little to grap on the top part, and the screen active almost all the way, so I highly doubt we will find anything 'standard' or generic that will fit.
  6. No that is just me hating you and using the moderator power to delete your posts.... 😈 .... Actually I had some too I could not find, but ended thinking I could not find the proper keywords to find them. But there could be something that was lost in the conversion to the new forum. I doubt they ever got all the missing images and incorrect links straightened out, so there could be other bugs too. You might be able to find it here, there are various filters available. https://community.fxtec.com/discover/content-posted/ If that is not a moderator only thing.
  7. No no, you need the micro air pockets in your floors not walls... 😇🤣 The problem I see with a case for the top is that the 'arms' at the sides are going to be either so thick that they will be annoying, or so thin they could be flapsy and will be vulnerable, Of course if we combine it with some software reducing the active display area (display and touch), then the sides can be made more sturdy. But a transparent silicone 'top' can follow the edge screen smoothly. But yes it obviously has its drawbacks too.
  8. Just tried to take the silicone shell of the Pre-prod unit and put it on the screen part. It works flawlessly! The grip is not good, and can't work well with another shell, but the touch works just fine! so 1mm silicone is NOT an issue, So you might even consider going for that as the primary choice!
  9. Tape is definitely an option but it tends to act badly with time and micro-movements when taking it in and out of the pocket. But It could easily become a habit to change a few strips of thin double adhesive tape every one or two month. There is also the possibility of a clear full covering silicone top!! Like in the double-case @lameboyadvance linked above. A more drastic approach, but might be quite a lot easier to get a good grip. And the Pro1 has a very touch sensitive screen, so I think it would work through thin silicone too.
  10. Being a bit evil I would say they are charging them too fast, or charging while hot. Both are great ways to kill batteries and get poor stamina on your device..... My old BB Priv can still last VERY long on a charge. Is currently testing, it is 'down' to 56% left after 10 days idle with WiFi On (no sim though)
  11. Now THAT was on purpose! Mails were sent based on order numbers to give early orders a chance to pay before LATE orders, so that part worked as planned.
  12. Ah I see. If you rely on straight edges being held by the stretch and friction, I think the conic shape might trick you. That is preventing all the hard cases and hard cases with soft inner shell i tried in staying on. Of course they ALSO have the problem that the bottom is stiff, and that helps pulling them off I believe the reason why the soft TPU and Silicon cases for Huawei P20 Pro and Samsung Note 7 fit so well is because they are made for a rounded shape so the top of the shell is going inwards, and this just catches the phased edge of the lower part. BUT these cases/shells are taking more than half of it. so it is going to be hard to get both halves to grip at the same time, without interfering with the slide. IF that fails, you just might consider having the lower part gripping on the long edges, and the top part on the short edges! So the top long edges comprises sort of a rubber band connecting the two end-parts. Below is a close up of P20 Pro flip-case grip. It is only the outermost that is part of the case ( @abielins please don't look too close, at has not been sterilized )
  13. My GUESS is that someone came up with this scheme in a hurry, when they realized they could not do all in time before CNY after all. And though it might seem like a good plan IF you assume even distribution of everything, it WILL give odd 'sparks' in countries with few orders or an unusual distribution over time. That could either result in late paid orders being included in some countries, or the contrary early paid orders not to be included in others. As these fluctuations are likely to affect countries with few orders the most, the number of people affected should be low - but that does not make it less annoying for the individuals caught by it off course.
  14. The adjustment they made to counter for timezone differences, obviously had its drawbacks. 😢 As it is a complication in their end, I guess that have outweighed the pros and cons before deciding adding this. I'm not going to defend nor scold them for it. But sad for you of course. Note that it is not the two hours in it self that matters, if the other Swiss orders had substantially lower order numbers, they will have received their payment mails earlier, Some report that they got mail and paid on July 31. So If too few have paid after you, you are pushed to the remaining about 30% group, even though you were a fast payer.
  15. I have not heard any mentioning on the qwerty/qwertz ratio in this batch, though both are present among the non-IGG-coupon orders reported in the other thread, But you are absolutely right, that adds a level of complexity extra to the whole thing.
