  1. i am using an Fxtec Pro1 with Bell Canada for the last 1.5 year or so - in contrast to my old Nokia N900 which didn't work with Bell but with Rogers instead. in any case, the Fxtec works perfectly well with Bell.
  2. nop, the TOP PART is in place, it's fine for the last year or so. at that time i had to exchange the touch screen which works right ever since. but what definitely and robustly improved (no random behaviour) is the CALL VOLUME function for calls via SIGNAL. my ear drums finally don't get anymore perforated when i answer or do a call with SIGNAL. but i believe i still have no control whatsoever over call loudness when speaking over the REGULAR phone service. and what also seem to work reliably is the LED NOTIFICATION LIGHT, as said earlier, in terms of color control and actual blin
  3. me too actually - it appears to follow some random pattern in terms of functionality. it worked initially for 2-3 days, what surprise, but now ... once in a while it plays the notification sound, quasi randomly, that's it, so much for the brief joy...sigh !
  4. i began using a few days ago SIGNAL for all SMS/phone/video calls with my FxTec Pro1 - and, voilà, miraculously and finally, the LED notification light and related notification sound for incoming SMS messages started to work as expected, meaning the LED color is now adjustable and the (media) volume for the related audio beep also, from muted to actually quite loud ! and it seems to work reliably for days - as compared as to the previous scenario where these settings kept changing or stopped working entirely till the next reboot. anyway, SIGNAL-app for Android did it for me, not to speak ab
  5. i don't seem to have this feature : "4G calling" (HD voice aka wideband audio) - but i definitely experience this very loud audio volume with certain callers, notably with one that uses a landline phone as you observed too. are the settings under "Mobile Network" perhaps carrier specific ? my phone/data service is with Bell Canada.
  6. and i love my Pro1 too : i forgot to write this to this audience on the 4th of february. that's when i had made a first foto with that Snapdragon, a year earlier. i must have received the phone a day before or so. a full year went by, wow !
  7. i wrote - like others too - a few months ago a few words about my experience with the Snakehive wallet, see here and here. so far i am pretty happy with the result, no major complains about this new wallet & case (TIYA P20 Pro TPU) combination.
  8. i just replaced my screen a few days ago - wasn't hard at all, see here. i followed for that TeZdevice's advice here. you can do it in less tan half an hour. my screen & digitizer worked thereafter flawlessly. the reboot also brought back some sound effects such as the glang when charging - which implies that Android isn't as stable as a full-fledged unix box. my linux-based Nokia N900 was rock-stable and robust with uptimes up to a year or so...
  9. TeZtdevice, your advice was greatly appreciated - i replaced the original screen of my Pro1 and the new screen works flawlessly, or let's say, the upper 1/6 part of the screen started to be responsive again ! that's fantastic because apps like SONOS or FOTOS cannot be rotated and do not allow landscape mode. now i am able to reach reach again the apps' settings buttons. of course i also very much appreciate Fxtec's support service that sent me this replacement part for free !
  10. does anybody know where to get the HOWTO video shows from that will explain how to replace the Pro1's screen ? i just received a new screen by mail (see here) which should fix the problem i describe in the above post.
  11. i first wrote to Fxtec 2020-02-15, got a first answer 4 days later, was asked 2020-02-24 if i preferred a new screen to install myself or a repair service with Fxtec, and was confirmed 2020-02-26 to receive a new screen in the coming weeks - which arrived indeed yesterday, after all this covid hassle. so i am perfectly happy with their service. now i only need the video HOWTO to replace the Pro1 screen... ADDON : issue of switching screens solved : see here
  12. perhaps you only need a new screen digitizer - see here and here ! by the way, that's quite a coincidence, i just received today two hours ago a new back part for the phone base which i suppose holds that digitizer parts that malfunction in my Pro1. with phone base i mean the part that holds the keyboard. anyway, now i need to get that video with the instructions how to replace the faulty piece with this new one. will keep you posted... CORRECTION : i actually had received last night the screen part from the Fxtec support team ! now i just need their HOWTO video ...
  13. regarding hardware issues : i am experiencing trouble with the screen digitizer (see an earlier quote of mine and others' too) and then with that infamous fingerprint reader, again as others... the fingerprint scanner and the associated software work essentially at random, i have no clue how to improve hit rate... otherwise i am more than happy with the Pro1 - but i am at the same eagerly awaiting an OS update too !
  14. i also had and still have an annoying screen digitizer problem (see my post in this forum), and was promised a while ago a replacement screen - which i assume should at some point arrive after all the global viral troubles are settled...
  15. in my case jmtpfs was extremely slow too, but only with an old Android version, v4 i believe. now, having two Android 9 phones (Samsung A10e and Fxtec Pro1) transfer speeds and access are lightning fast under jmtpfs and the very same version(!) - to my surprise i must admit. in contrast, my old N900 was on my host usually mounted as /dev/sd?1 (? being b,c or whatever) - that worked perfectly fine too.
