  1. They are different. I have also bought an Elephone display with frame by mistake which I had to remove the display from. It was full metal anyway but Pro1's frame is at least mostly plastic (I don't know if any metal at the outside of display frame or not, but other parts are plastic). Also, Elephone is a one-piece hardware and its display frame also includes USB connector cutout and also otherwise different from Pro1's frame.
  2. I have just replaced my screen in my Pro1 yesterday. The instructions @FlyingAnterolinked are good - you will need a heat gun (the one which is not looks like a hair dryer but a smaller, better controllable unit). You should heat up the screen edges - the disassembly guide suggest 160 degree Celsius, ensure you don't really exceed it, so a simple hair dryer is really not good (also because of excessive amount of air and uncontrolled temperature). You will need a little bit of patience but the display will come out. Then you should clean the frame itself and you will need something w
  3. I still did not use the new display too much, but I feel I have a working Pro1 again. 🙂 I mostly notice the working of touch panel is smooth again, so I was not able to enter my unlock pattern while I saw the lines but now it is possible. My touch keyboard often used to be stuttering but now it is fluent as it was before. The display is shiny. Color temperature was greatly improved also with original display using stock display and latest firmware and I don't have a possibility of a side-by-side comparison but it seems to be relatively good also in lower brightness. So I don't real
  4. Finally, I had some time replacing the display in my Pro1 which had ghost touches. I have decided not to experience with the original display but change it to the display ordered at Aliexpress because I did not want to stress the phone too much - I had to use a heat gun to separate display and its frame and I did not want to do this more than necessary. Which was strange is that all of the screws were loose (not tightened) and an internal screw near the front camera was almost completely unscrewed (almost felt out of its bolt). However, tightening the screws did not help (blind are

    Flaky GPS

    True and GPS (GNSS) reception can be very poor inside a house or at a place where there are several tall buildings near the road - this is in general, not Pro1-related. Now I remember what helped me on my Moto G6. 🙂 It did not have GNSS reception even after reboot (but tower-based guessing instead) till I have modified what kind of position systems are allowed to use by Android then set it back to allow GNSS / Tower / whatever it had. Maybe it worth a try on Pro1 but so far I only had this problem on Moto G6. ...so, correct. Check this option and also if it is set corr

    Flaky GPS

    Thanks, I didn't know that. So it basically uses the same parts of Maps solution (and same hardware background) but in another form. 🙂
  8. I am also using a black P20 Pro case which I have modified for the Pro1's holes and I am convinced. Edge touching is much better I think, but keyboard opening is a bit harder. However, I can open it easily by lifting its back up first. I wanted to have some protection because a phone with real keyboard is very important for me...

    Flaky GPS

    I don't really know what is Android Auto exactly, but I never had any problems with GPS on my phone, also I found it to be extremely good in every situations. I don't use it very often though, but sometimes I use Waze and sometimes the Google version (Maps? application - it is translated so I am unsure about its name). It has always found satellites easily. Last time I used it today and I have not noticed any problems, however, mobile internet was active, so AGPS was available. Otherwise, I had problems with GPS on my Moto G6 phone in a strange way which appeared in a very bad situa
  10. I think someone should try it using anybother phone and external keyboard (or external keyboard using Pro1) to see what this problem related to and if it is a firmware issue or not.
  11. I am also using "Textra" as messaging app and this function works in it unlike the stock application.
  12. I also have blind area since the problem appeared but this blind area is also not constant. Also, yesterday I looked at comments in one application of play store and had two feedbacks sent to Google by ghost inputs for the same, non-problematic comment saying it is spam or unwanted content... and there is no option to revoke it... 😞 Once I was unable to type certain characters on touch keyboard, but later the same characters are worked in the same touch keyboard and same orientation, so it is varying. What I feel constant is a blind area near that place where ghost inputs are appea
  13. I have also experienced this thing with opened keyboard but I have not played with opening/closing mechanism in order to see if it changes anything. However, I have noticed if I press the display at a certain corner, the self-working ghost touches seems to behave better...
  14. Thanks for sharing... these problems are the same as mine written above (one of the videos was mine). Anyway, my replacement screen ordered from Aliexpress has just arrived so I plan to disassemble my Pro1 this weekend if everything go right. I am curious about the internal state of the display's back so if an insure can be seen or not. If the latter (and I can remove it without insure), I would like to remove the display and, if possible, I will try to reapply it again - if it does not change the problem then I will replace the display with the one received. It is more than inte
  15. I have also had a restart yesterday (update installed when it became available) while I wanted to take a photo using Gcam Port's camera. Display became green and I think a watchdog restart happened. I have a problem which I still have not dug into so Android keeps restarting a while when I reboot my phone or connecting a charger so it has started its "usual" reboot loop. ...but there is a difference. My reboot loop does not affect the kernel, so practically the hardware does not restarts but the Android on top. The watchdog restart above was a complete freeze or panic so also
  16. I was speaking about this audio recorder. Now I took a record and I have noticed it is also louder in the first few moments (maybe around a second) but gain / cutoff are not varying during recording and I can clearly hear background noises and also my colleague's question asking what I am doing about five-six metres and two monitors in-between while I was speaking something unmeaningful in quieter / louder volume. 🙂
  17. I have also noticed this agressive noise filtering during video recording. I am unsure but maybe one of the applications worked well but the Snapdragon Camera which has good video record capability can't use microphone this way which makes video recording to be really inconvenient. Anyway, I have found a voice recording application which can record audio without this noise filtering effect, so it is definitively possible. Based on this, it would be good if it could be applied _only_ during phone conversations and not for regular audio recording at all. So I hope it can be solved
  18. Not necessarily electrical. It can be a problem of some kind of glue I think. I mean a glue inside the screen module - not screen assembly but in the screen itself which you can buy from 3rd-party sources. ...and that can be an aging problem and both @Milly and me are started having the same issue after about eight months of usage and the difference of our phone's age seems to be only this about one month (time elapsed since manufacturing is about the same) which is the difference of appearing these ghost inputs for us. However, fortunately, it seems only a small number of phones
  19. Hmm, it is more than interesting. I still curious if cleaning will help but this problem seems to have similar root cause, be it anything... dust, physical damage or screen aging issue... The same type and position of this problem is suspicious, but it still can be caused by some factors.
  20. I think it is at similar position for me: https://youtu.be/BpIaO-91PGg
  21. Maybe my suspicion of some dust can go below or near the screen can also be the cause. I don't know if there is some glue between screen and its frame or how it is applied, but I think my first try will be a cleaning of the bottom/side part of the display and the internal edges of the frame. So if I can separate the display and its frame without breaking (I have a high chance but should be prepared for the opposite), clean and reapply (and there is no damage can be seen on the screen itself), then I think the original display will work again perfectly. I am curious anyway and it may
  22. This kind of ghosts inputs are "normal" if the charger is too noisy. I mean I have experienced similar behaviour using other phones and bad quality charger, so it is not uncommon. Also I don't think it is related. Maybe if we could reduce sensitivity of our touch panel by software, it may help to eliminate this problem anyway. I also don't necessarily have to touch the display itself for a normal touch input, so a minor dust which could go at the edges of the screen may also can be the cause of this ghost effect. It may worth a try not to replace the whole display but clean
  23. I have also experienced this kind of ghost inputs a few weeks ago. I don't know what happened, but the screen looks to be intact. However, I have found a minor insure on display frame which I don't know if it is related, but I think so. I can barely see it anyway and there are no any more issues on the frame and my phone is in a protective case (on back), also having protection foil applied on the back and on the screen. However, I can feel it with my nails a bit. So I don't know the reason but I assume the screen has been damaged for me but in a part which can not be seen a
  24. Buy screen protectors made for Elephone U Pro, those will work.
  25. I have the same issue on stock using GCam Mod for example, so definitively there is something similar happening regarding this also under stock.
