  1. Never tried YouTube on the Pro1X so had to enable it first, the apps does not seem to work that well, so did not try different keyboard-drivers, just killed the app... But launching Yotube in FF it does respect Esc to exit full screen mode - so just a poor aspect of the app I guess,
  2. Personally I have been using "Open Camera" since about day one - and it is doing a great job - less HDR.
  3. Have you tried the Esc key? That works on a PC. (obviously the active keyboard driver could tease here, not actually sending 001Bh)
  4. Well 5.99" and 2160x1080, gives 5.36" x 2.68", so 2160/5.36 = 403DPI
  5. In Denmark we have a horrible poorly written app, that everyone(!) is sort of forced to use: MitId (that is translated: My Id), and this app completely randomly claims that your device is rooted, and refuses to work, and you have to start all over with reinstall (or at the least wipe all the apps data) and verify yourself with your passport and photos to reinitialize it (Takes at the least five minutes each time), and it might work a few times until it again claims the device is rooted... Utterly useless app, that currently has a rating of 1.5/5!!!! And yet it is mandatory - hence over a milli

  7. You will need to put the coil on the outside of the Pro1, as the metal back will not let the signal through, but if you mean a shell case for the Pro1, it should not block the field with normal materials. I do not know how much effect will be lost by heat generated by electric current induced in the back-plate, But apart from the coils themselves you will have an extra heat source. So though possible, it is unlikely to be recommendable, unless done for slow charging with low current chargers, say 0.5A, and preferably with the phone vertical, to have simple conductive air flow help dispersing s
  8. (And no , we have no info on what the difference nor why there is a difference. Could be as simple as a supplier stopped producing one or the Pro1 Parts.)
  9. BTW tried looking at ebay and aliexpress, and this worked as search term: Battery Activation Charge Board phones (I tried to see if I could find one with a switch for if it is LiPo, but did not find any).
  10. This is awesome news! David. Tanks. The big question is what connector the Pro1X uses, as they say the batteries are incompatible - but that might be the physical shape or the position of the connector, not the connector it self. We really need something to fairly easy charge the Pro1X, unless they by firmware can fix that the Pro1X does not shut down in time, but can deplete it self.
  11. 🤣 I fear that the current phones Pro1/Pro1X/Astro might be the last one we will see with a real keyboard in the right direction. And just hope they will survive until we see some totally new way of communication with the devices. Maybe some fancy smart-watch like device that can sense the signals sent to the fingers, so we can just type on a table or any other surface,,,, I think there still is a long way to devices we can communicate with directly by thought.
  12. Remember that the Pro1X was not originally planned as a new phone, but was planed to sell more Pro1s slightly upgraded to new customers. I bet only the most hardcore Pro1 users would shell out for the Pro1X, just to get a little extra ram and more storage - things turned out differently so the Pro1X was suddenly viable as an upgrade to newer (though less powerful) chipset. I haven;t got the numbers but would be surprised if the original Pro1X orders had 100 Pro1 users... (Though I and some of the frequent commenters in here did order both)
  13. I for one. I tried to fight hard against the shifted layout early on, but unfortunately the Pro1 had it... One mayor issue with the shifted qwerty is that many languages usually got letters right of L and P, and this becomes a mess of awkward positions with the shifted. If you are using A-Z only the shift is just a bad idea, not a nuisance in daily usage. But quite a bit on it here: https://eskerahn.dk/?p=3556#ShiftedOrNot So glad to see that they fixed it for the Pro1X
  14. Screens are fairly easy to find on Aliexpress, just search foe Elephone U Pro, that uses the same screen. The frame is specific for FxTec, but as far as i know they only sell it as a unit with the display.

  16. These are interesting observations. I have never seen this with neither the Pro1 nor the Pro1X. But at 60 I guess that my fingers are quite 'fixed' as-is. I have not 'retrained' the Pro1 since experiments in 2019. (I have the bug that the fingerprint reader sort of stops working on the Pro1, and needs a restart to work - it could be anywhere between a month and the same day, and I struggle to see any pattern in triggering it. MAYBE it is picking it up and attempting unlocking while it still is vibrating with incoming sms. And initially I tried retraining and al kinds of tricks, but for ye
  17. Well that is part of it, yes. But as other have said in a thread on the battery issue, it should have some protection-mechanism doing an auto-shutdown, before it gets so discharged, that it can not be charged.
  18. There are different aspects of this. In principle the Pro1X and Pro1 ought to work roughly equally well/bad. But that unfortunately is not the case all see. First of there are the general issue on what bands TMo uses, versus what the Pro1(x) is supposed to support. And also what the carriers allow into their networks in the US. That long story (that are more general) put aside, quite a number have reported network issues on the Pro1x also where the Pro1 works. But AFAIK, there are no conclusion on why it work for some, and for others not. We are not even sure f it is bound to specime
  19. I'm almost certain that it is NOT the same, as it is placed further from the back on the Pro1X. The port it self could be the same, but would be surprised if the pcb is.
  20. It is always a good idea to occasionally charge it fully, and also (almost) deplete it, for calibration purposes. As the Pro1X seem to have a bug, where you can not have it charging while off, we should be careful NOT to discharge it completely though. (The Pro1 we can enable charging while off, look for "fastboot oem off-mode-charge")
  21. Got any open-source alternatives? Not really no. Obviously a little can be found hidden a bit under Settings►Battery►ellipsis►Battery usage
  22. Unfortunately many are still waiting, some that bought years before you...
  23. This sounds a bit low, how many hours of screen on does that include? If not many hours of screen time a day, you might want to install some helper program (e.g. GSAM or 3C toolbox) to find out where the energy are wasted. Could well be an app that is the culprit. When idle it should burn less than 0.5% per hour. On the other hand with screen on, it can be 10%/hour and even worse if doing something hard. Especially be aware of 'free' apps, the ad's can waste a surprisingly large amount of battery, and thus be a double nuisance.... Some of the apps calling home to deliver the data th
  24. It is great that you do the effort in hunting down replacements, would be so great to know that there is an option, even if the capacity is a bit lower than what we got.
  25. ...A totally different question is if it is wise to do so. AFAIK It is not a two-way thing, and should not require location to be turned on. It is the matter of the carrier broadcasting a message over the cell towers covering an affected area. And HOPEFULLY it is needed so rarely that you are unlikely to know if it is on or off. In DK they have started using this with yearly testing, with a nasty ear-wrecking sound, so this year I made sure all my phones were off,,, during the test...
