  1. I am also using Firefox with my Pro1 but I am not usually keep it open, so 1 hour of continuous browsing is not typical for me. Maybe I have also experienced this anyway, I just remember closing the app and open it again but I did not really care of it. I have experienced to have a dark (maybe gray) screen in some circumstances in Firefox where I should press back button to current web page to show up, maybe it happens after I download something.
  2. As I wrote earlier, I have received a tracking number from FedEx and they are requesting some information about Customs. In last update of @Erik, I see the following statement: By looking at documents FedEx attached, there is an option of DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) which I can tick instead of the casual way of paying these fees. If I understand the situation well, regarding the quote above, I should use DDP option in order to everything go right. However, I have not seen mentioning DDP anywhere here so I am not sure if I should choose this option or not, I am also don't know what should I write on dotted line after this statement. I would like to ask if @Erik or @Waxberry could clarify it. I am going to call FedEx in the morning (maybe around 9 hours from now) and try to ask them of possible options and what kind of documents should I send them in case DDP is the right option but it would be good to hear some official suggestions regarding how to handle these documents - for me, currently it seems DDP may be the right and desired option.

    Basically it is an application but it adds these layouts to system and the system will use that layout directly and not through the application.
  4. Just a question... as far as I remember well, maybe @Erik wrote they will pay customs... does it mean I have to check "DDP" option with courier? It says TAX + VAT, etc. is to be payed by seller and there is a dotted line after this statement... ...that case what should i write on dotted line?

    That app adds the possibility to include layouts other than those which exist in stock system. So, basically you can use a better layout for yourself if you are not convenient with those built into the system. In other words, not the app which actively does this feature but it gives the possibility to add it to let the system do it. 🙂
  6. Hungary also received tracking number. 🙂 ...however, they also would like to request permission for customs clearance... Doesn't they (at F(x)tec side) told they have customs pre-paid? Don't I remember well? It would be not very good to pay the same thing twice...
  7. Hi, I am basically satisfied with camera itself but Snapdragon Camera is really not the best. Also it seems sometimes it does not take photos (maybe because I have configured it to use SD Card) but then it does again. Also a but noisy in dark environment. I have found myself using OpenCamera and currently trying Footej Camera which looks to be good. Maybe they are better in darker environment but where I user camera, I think it performs well. Basically I can make sharp macro photos - much better than with my Moto G6 - also inside using room light. Outside photos are also look to be good. So I think its camera is not bad at all, however, some improvement of Snapdragon Camera would be still good.
  8. I think it is a bit more complicated than if somebody ordered QWERTY or QWERTZ device because as far as I know, QWERTZ devices were sold only to Europe destinations. For me, I would have been bought a non-shifted QWERTY instead, but as it was not available, I have bought QWERTZ one. However, I use a mixed layout on it which basically has standard QWERTY layout while accent characters are reachable by using FN (blue arrow). Basically my layout looks like QWERTY more than like QWERTZ but definitively not like shifted QWERTY - which wanted to be a useful idea but for me, it would be inconvenient to use it especially if I would like to also use national layout. So for a Poll, I may be curious for these options: - I have ordered a shifted QWERTY because I think it fits well - I have ordered a QWERTZ one because I think it fits well - I would have ordered one with national layout but went for QWERTY - I would have ordered one with national layout but went for QWERTZ because it fits better - I would have ordered standard QWERTY but went for QWERTZ because standard QWERTY is not available - I would have ordered standard QWERTY but QWERTZ was also not available here so I went for a shifted one - I have not ordered yet because I would like to have a non-shifted QWERTY layout - I have not ordered yet because I would like to have a national layout - I have not ordered yet because of other reasons
  9. I think if you are IGG backer then you should have a stock assigned mail sooner or later this batch. Maybe they have not finished sending out mails yet or it may have landed in spam folder of your inbox.
  10. What I can tell you that an order number of #49XX from Hungary of QWERTZ device without IGG coupon has received stock assignment the same time as me with IGG coupon (12:43 CET). It was also payed in 31th July maybe within an hour of request arrived. As it seems there is at least one user who received an e-mail also about not being in this batch, it may happen you will also receive stock assignment e-mail later - maybe tomorrow.
  11. I have heard about another stock assigned e-mail for QWERTZ, EU, without IGG coupon and order number 49xx.
  12. Hehe, same for me also. 🙂 However, PinePhone's courier told usual shipping time as 10-14 days and I think F(x)tec uses a more expensive shipping company with pre-paid TAX, so Pro1 should arrive earlier I think. 🙂 However, if you expect both of them early February then it will be a real race. 🙂 Anyway, two different phones to play with takes much more free time. 😄
  13. Right. I would be interested in at least two - so maybe four or five. ...in black colour, if possible please.
  14. Right. Also it may worth looking at Spam folder as service providers are not really like to receive mass e-mails spread on their user accounts (and that is one reason that F(x)tec is not sending all e-mails at the same time).
  15. What was written in your e-mail and what is your location / keyboard layout / order number approximately?
  16. Also just got a stock assigned e-mail - IGG order, EU, QWERTZ.
  17. It would be good if someone could manufacture a similar case in a factory-like environment. Anyway, thank you for sharing .stl files.
  18. I have just filed a pull request on GitHub for Hungarian layout of Pro1 as it seems @Anssi Hannula is not actively checking this forum. I hope it will be included soon. I put both QWERTZ and QWERTY versions there but I don't know how usable it is on shifted QWERTY layout.
  19. I think a better solution would be to only turn on the backlight in the event of slider opening or any key pressed. That way if keyboard remains open, one may need to press a key to light up the keyboard (maybe it needs the modification of the low level driver). The best solution would be if a counter would exists (initial value is ideally set by user) and any keystroke would reset that counter. That way keyboard light would be turned off after a certain time and is able to be turned on also if slider remained open when the phone went to standby. Also, it seems the system keeps landscape orientation lock so the most simple solution may be to set last state based on its value on wakeup. Currently, I use fn+F6 to turn backlight on in case of it remained off after wake up and I feel it is relatively convenient as at least I don't have to close and open the slider to get it work.
  20. That is what can be done using ffmpeg at command line (also graphical fontend may exist)... ...but it would be good to not have such limitations...
  21. Yes - I have recorded a relatively long video with my Moto G6 last year. It can not record in 4k but somewhere around 2k - using OpenCamera. I was surprised to see it clipped the video at 4 GB despite the exFAT which supports larger files, but now I know its reason (I didn't know also video API has such a limitation in Android). Fortunately, it could fit in two files but I was not really happy when I saw that. I don't remember what program I used to join them but I think ffmpeg solved the problem and video looked good. ...but the same video would maybe have 4 or 5 pieces which should be joined if it was recorded in 4k. It is not very convenient anyway and solving it only in Android 11 is a bit... strange. So if the same problem would exists when phones are going to be powerful enough to record 8k videos, then we are limited to around 5 minutes of recording per file - it seems they have decided to solve it just "in time" (it is not a graceful laughing but a forced one)
  22. It is too early to ask this, but if a successor will come up later, they may have to also experience with 5G. 🙂
  23. Keyboard layout can be easily modified under Android and FinQwerty does help a lot by adding 3rd-party layouts to Android without the need of rooting. So if I understand well, if these layouts will be done by somebody and included in stock firmware or even they appear in FinQwery for example, then it is a solution for that. As the source code of FinQwerty is available on GitHub, the most simple way of adding my own layout was to build a version for myself which has my layout included. I have also put a layout file in the specific thread here which is a standard layout so it worth to be included in FinQwerty, I hope it will happen to be built-in later. I can even use Android's built-in layout switching (CTRL+Space as @EskeRahn wrote) so I think what you would like to use can be created relatively easily if the actual texts written on the keyboard does not really matter but the actual layout behind the keys. However, it still has to be done by somebody, but again, it is not complicated.
  24. So this thread has ended up with a simple math equation coming from the real life.
  25. I have formatted it outside of Android and the system wanted to format it again and it has always put FAT32 on it. I have also zeroed the first part of the card and also put it on a partition and without partitions at all - when I put the card in, I had a question about using it as an internal or external medium then to reformat it... I don't know what does it look for, maybe it wants to have some specific parameter (setting) or some files at appropriate place but somehow it seemed to found out the card was formatted elsewhere or just because of unknown filesystem. I don't remember if I have also tried to format the card outside of Android but with FAT32 as I wanted to avoid using FAT32. I don't remember having similar behaviour with my Moto G6 running Android 8 but I remember a similar strange behaviour when it was updated to Android 9. That is the main problem of the whole system (the lack of root). It did not help (so to format the card using another OS), however, I don't have any rooted Android phones. I really don't like Android anyway...
