  1. Right, I'm with you on that no bloat-ware stance. However, I'm pretty sure not so long ago stock Android had a default app that's not gmail doing email, contact and calendar sync.
  2. I see. That's just a home screen feature then. That's a bit odd seeing how it looks like Android has those built-in shortcuts shown in the settings but no magnifying glass on that keyboard to use them.
  3. I understand you can launch/switch apps using keyboard shortcuts. I found the physical keyboard settings entry where they show the shortcuts but I still have to understand how to use them. I think my keyboard is missing that magnifying glass key 😁 Then again it took me like an hour to notice that Sym key that does not seem to be doing anything. 🤔 I'll blame my old age for being so thick 😁
  4. Do we know if and when Android 10 will come to Pro1? Coming from Huawei P30 Pro I'm notably missing the swipe from the edge to go back feature.
  5. Is there no functioning dark mode on Pro1? Actually there is a Display Theme option but it has no influence on the Settings app itself. It remains white.
  6. Looks like there is no default email app outside gmail on pro one. Huawei P30 Pro does have a really good email app for instance. Though I've had the same problem on that LG G8X ThinQ, no standard email app there either. I'm usually using that default email app to sync contacts, calendars and email from a private Microsoft Exchange server. I do have a gmail account but I'm not using it. Is there no stock email app on Android anymore?
  7. I just got my Pro1 from HK today. Got FedEx shipping notification on Wednesday saying it should be there on Monday but it was there by Friday already. That was a shipment to Germany outside Frankfurt. I'm still ok but then again it's 5 days incubation 😁 The phone itself is just awesome. Thanks FxTec!
  8. Sounds good, looks like I'm getting QWERTY then. I guess I won't bother them with an email.
  9. New AZERTY layout proposal - that's the one we want: Yellow prints on common letter keys are accessed using Alt Gr, other yellow prints are accessed using Shifts. http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/9aa155b55485e01a823b8ccd04d00fe7 Original AZERTY layout proposal - we don't want this one anymore: http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/84c7007c45445b002871e157fdab8cb4 Here is the corresponding QWERTY US layout proposal: http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com#/gists/c8cd79243e2f4470b949991786952262
  10. I've pre-ordered back in February and since paid the invoice. There was no option to select QWERTY or QWERTZ. I'm concerned I'm going to get QWERTZ since mine is shipping to Germany. Ideally I would like to get AZERTY, however since this is not happening I would settle for QWERTY.
  11. Surely DUAL SIM support is baked in stock Android. I doubt fxtec has the resources to implement that themselves.
  12. > Are You pretty sure, that Your case was a genuine Nokia product? Pretty sure, it was good though until that bit broke. Nevertheless it feels cheap next to the PDair all leather case but its low profile was definitely a plus.
  13. I too was a flat screen purist until I saw a Samsung S7 Edge and decided to get one for myself, which I'm still using. I think it brings just the right amount of bling without getting in the way. Though the fact that you may have to push directly on the screen, to open and close it, is a genuine usability and solidity concern. I would just be happy with a flat screen as long as it is AMOLED. However I'm guessing the panel they are using for the Pro1 is just off-the-shelf standard component these days. It could be that a similar flat screen would be more expensive and harder to source.
  14. @EskeRahn You can optionally fold back the cover under the base when you put the phone on a table. It's called a bookcase because it opens like a book, so the screen cover should open on the side of the keyboard. Here is how you do it: - Pickup your phone - Open the bookcase while rotating - Snap up the screen revealing the keyboard - Type happily When holding your phone in landscape the cover is naturally being held in place between your palms while you type with your thumbs. When sitting at a table you either fold the cover under the base or leave it before the keyboard where it do
  15. @MichalTUR I had that official Nokia E7 case for a while but the small plastic bit for closing it broke pretty fast. The PDair all leather case was similar but a lot more sturdy and classy albeit thicker. What we want really is a mix of the Nokia E7 PDair and Leicke Manna for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. See links in Tweets above.
  16. My take a on a proper leather case for landscape qwerty:
  17. Not sure how you could miss as on my phone it keeps spamming me with that subscribe popup. Ought to be fixed...
  18. It would indeed be great it was serviceable. If the keyboard could be replaced you could upgrade to desired layout once regional variants are available.
  19. Awesome! Snaps just like my retired E7. Thanks for sharing.
  20. I sure hope the initial qwerty will support international characters one way or another. It looks like they have plenty enough modifiers keys.
  21. I'm happy with 14mm. More concerned with the battery being less than my Samsung S7 Edge, 3200mAh against 3600mAh. Certainly due to the fact that they need to use off-the -shelf batteries rather than a custom one.
  22. @noir Fingerprint reader on the side sounds good too. As long as it is not on the back. Thanks for the info.
