  1. Got the same errors 3 times, then I thought I will not enter my credit card number once again. I then gave up... Maybe I will wait to have your wise thoughts before buying it. Honestly if it was the BB Q10 form factor, I would insist. But to me the titan is still too big unfortunately. Thank for having shared you problems with Kickstarter, I feel less alone 🙂
  2. Wise decision you had to check the frequency! I would personally don't recommend the Gemini as a phone. It is almost unusable to make and receive phone call. It is quite fragile as well...
  3. You're right. I just checked by powering it back to life. I've put lineage 14 at that time. And it's damn slow... It boots and charge the battery though. It's funny how it looked big at the time I got it, and now it is cute and the good size to me. Sad in a sense...
  4. I have a Droid4 I can send you (from France should be easy), but it is one I got used and yet in a pretty bad outside shape. If I remember correctly I've put cyanogenMod on it...
  5. Did you noticed the coming unihertz titan pocket campaign ? https://launch.unihertz.com/pages/titan-pocket While I would prefer a landscape keyboard and "pro1 mini" , I enjoyed the BB Q10 I had between the Droid4 and the pro1. Let's see the spec and price...
  6. I'm like you yes. I think the pro1 is excellent, it has the portrait full keyboard I desperately wanted, and it is the only one. But a bit too big. To me the best size was the Droid4, I could easily reach the center of the keyboard with my thumbs. Nothing is perfect, and regarding my wishes, the pro1 is by far the best option.
  7. I finally decided to buy the tech bundle... I could not reasonably get a second pro1, but want to modestly support fxtec. It would be too bad if they sink now. My pro1 is still in perfect shape, but knowing me, having some spare part is a reasonable anticipation ˆˆ. It is true it would be even better if the bundle includes some keyboard parts. I know it is quite robust, but these tactile buttons have a life time. I remember my old blackberry Q10 has the "M" button starting failing after 3 years... Anyway, I let you know how it will going with th bundle.
  8. Same here, I completely missed it due to dollar payment not so easy with my card, and now it is a bit out of budget...
  9. Card refused because it's not euros, no other payment option (paypal for instance), so long early bird discount... I would be happy to contribute to the fxtec endeavour...
  10. I know batteries are evolving, however I'm wondering if charging regularly at more than 1C (faster than one hour or more than 3.2A on 4.2V for the pro1) is still reducing the overall battery lifetime. Personally I try to not let discharged less than 20% and plug a 2A 5V charger. But I agree, in some situations a quick charge totally make sense.
  11. Very nice design! It takes time to draw and adjust such 3D prints, well done!
  12. I had the Gemini, not the cosmo. However my opinion is the Pro1 is far more useful to me. TL;DR My Gemini is fragile, the hinge is plastic, and will eventually break ( and I'm taking good care of my devices ). The metallic plates are locked in place by tiny asperities in the plastic body. This is ageing fast and I start to loose the metal plates just by opening the device. The only good thing is the screen is protected when closed, but, the keys leave marks on it, as the screen is in contact with the keyboard. So use a screen protector film... There is two usbC port, but only one can
  13. I never pay attention, but 26 days and counting.
  14. The astroslide has an interesting mechanism indeed. However I think it will be very prone to the same problem I had with one Droid4. If a play build up between the two rails, every time you try to open or close it by pushing not at the center, the screen put itself crooked asymmetrically and hang. And it seems to be yet the case on the prototype video. Not speaking of the mandatory ribbon or flex PCB fatigue with such a long travel. Anyway, I had a Gemini and didn't like it unfortunately (hardware and software, removing the Sim to put it in the Pro1 was such a relief!), so this new planet
