  1. Way back in the day they did mention they would eventually keep stock on hand after preorders we're filled, but a lot has changed since then. I would still consider this phone but not until they've ironed out production and after sale support. So I continue to wait.... Keep checking in every so often
  2. Good to see progress. Are they going to stick to IGG for all sales or will they eventually sell off their own website? Also, will they ever keep stock on hand or is it made to order?
  3. I just noticed fxtec website shows pro1x at 899. Indiegogo has it for 849, and the prices used to be less than that. I still remember when this phone was being advertised on the main website for 649. I know inflation, supply chain, etc. But I'm surprised the price went up so much. Especially when you consider the raw components are at least a few years old now...
  4. Coming up on 5 months without the device repaired. I would be annoyed too. Insert any excuse you want but this isn't tenable. And if they need to keep spare parts on hand for repairs, they should delay out the new orders further. Existing customers should get priority.
  5. Honestly fxtec should be more concerned about getting these approvals. If I can't use the device on a carrier of my choice, I'm not going to get it, regardless of how good or novel it is. That only limits their already limited pool of buyers
  6. If you have time and money to float, this is available with free returns from Japan https://www.ebay.com/itm/F-x-TEC-Pro1-English-Layout-5-99-Type-Curve-6GB-128GB-Black-Unlocked-Used-bz563-/194584138574?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0
  7. They just posted an update on their indiegogo page. Looks like production will start October
  8. SD835 is about 5-6 years old depending on when you start the clock, but I digress... While I agree that regarding raw power and specs don't matter on their own, they do matter in the context of an Android device that doesn't have vertical integration of software and hardware. Apple has proven this concept with a much more refined experience with less hardware (ram, battery, etc). Google has followed suit on this idea with their pixel line. The pro1 doesn't have the benefit of this integration, so in my opinion, the specs do matter.
  9. I wonder if th phone is covered under credit card warranty extensions
  10. I wonder if the warranty starts from purchase date or when you receive it. Either way, 1 year warranty is really not enough from a company that has this many deficiencies. Both production and post sale issues
  11. You might even want to delete the boot animation for faster boot time. Made a difference back in the cyanogen days but not sure if it still would
  12. Fingerprint sensor will be redesigned - wonder what means. I know on the Pro1 right now that is a pain point for some
  13. I told Chen about this nearly two years ago when the pro1 was still in development. Still think the device is too big but that ship sailed a long time ago. Given you have the added bulk of the keyboard the screen should be a little smaller. Maybe 5.5 - 5.8 inches. As it sits right now, the pro1 is one of the thickest, heaviest, and bulkiest phones on the market. Using a 6 inch screen doesn't help that agenda
  14. I used to root and install custom roms on my previous phones all the time. Ever since using Google pixel phones, I've stopped modifying my software. Simply put, the stock firmware just works. No glitches, no maintenance, no reboots, bugs, battery drains, etc. More than anything I can't find the time to mess around with my phone anymore, maybe a part of getting older. Modifying your phone is always fun, but for a phone that I depend on daily, it will probably stay stock. I'll be honest, I haven't missed lineage or felt the need to go back to it for years now. And it used to be my go to rom
