  1. Yeah, the durability of the Pro1 is uncertain at this point. I have no issues yet (knock on wood!) despite even a few very small drops 😬😬 but I scan the "Pro1 for sale" posts here now and then, maybe I'll buy a back-up one...
  2. I used an E7 for a couple of weeks (thanks to old Nokia's very generous trial program for "bloggers" back in the day...). I thought I would love it but at the time it felt too heavy and the camera kinda sucked (and yet look at me with the Pro1 now...) I almost said the Nokia N97! Despite being criminally underspecced I loved mine, especially starting the camera by sliding the cover and just popping it open with one hand to type messages on it. Clearly I am quite comfortable nursing along hobbled devices...
  3. Not missing my Samsung Galaxy Relay aka ApexQ, which I would boot up now and again just to feel the keyboard. And oddly enough, don't even miss the Pixel OG (and its great camera) that was my daily driver before the Pro1. Or any other phone. Despite the phone's quirks (friggin' fingerprint scanner drives me nuts every day) I haven't had any of the major issues I've seen others report. The keyboard is a joy to use every time, I love the screen, the camera is fine with a GCam port and I haven't had any sound issues -music and podcasts sound great. Never looked back for an instant after I fi
  4. I tried this app, and while it's a nice GCam implementation, it suffers from what all the other GCam ports for the Pro1 seem to, namely: the viewfinder in Night Sight mode is still upside down. Also the Nigh Vision algorithms aren't as good as some of the other ports, the results are kinda grainy. Too bad, I prefer the newer UI on this one.
  5. Given how long the battery lasts I wouldn't be surprised if the OS is forcing the CPU into some kind of power saving/lower performance mode...
  6. Yeah, I think I'm getting the same thing. Notice it especially with the H key. Glad to know I'm not the only one, I thought maybe I was imagining it.
  7. I'm curious, how's your battery life with Android 10 GSI? (Asking because I'm quite impressed with the battery life on the Pro1 so far).
  8. That's the thing, that list of issues doesn't really give a sense of what it's like to use it...
  9. Just wondering, since I am hesitant to take the plunge and flash my new phone: has anyone been using Android 10 GSI on their Pro1 regularly? How does it compare to stock? Any important functionalities lost or messed up?
  10. Hmm... Any word on whether this also addresses some of the Bluetooth encoding (specifically aptX) issues?
  11. I did, it still didn't work for me, only SBC mode... I realize BT is generally cranky and it could just be that my headset and the phone don't like each other 😁
  12. Interesting. My headphones only support aptX, not HD. Definitely sounds (excuse the pun) like a SW/firmware bug then...
  13. Oh wow, yes, I see what you mean. The few pics I took with NightSight weren't good enough to do that kind of testing 🙂 Ok so the Pocophone port is definitely the better one.
  14. Are you really seeing a big difference between both apps in Nightside mode? I'm finding both pretty much the same - both apps have the viewfinder rotated upside down, in both the viewfinder freezes when the light is too low, but both somehow also produce good and just about identical pictures for me.
  15. I know this is an old thread, but I tried my BT earbuds that usually use aptX for the first time with the Pro1 today and they connected but got no sound. I didn't know about aptX issues until I checked the forum but it seems a few people have also encountered no music playback with aptX but yes with a downgraded codec. So this is definitely a live bug still. Hoping it will be fixed in a SW update soon...
  16. Ah, so this is probably why my BT earbuds connect but don't produce sound... They usually run using aptX, haven't tried downgrading the codec but I'll try that next. This is the first bug that is close to a showstopper for me. All the other quirks so far are livable for me as a price of having the keyboard, but my BT audio quality matters a lot to me. There had better be a software fix coming soon...
  17. Interestingly you can install both side-by-side. And TBH the only difference I have noticed so far is the UI, the Pocophone port uses the older Gcam UI. And both have the additional bug with the Nightsight viewfinder that it freezes if the light level is too low, but starts up again if you point it at brighter light.
  18. The rotated Nightsight viewfinder is definitely disconcerting but it still works - cool, you just have to frame the shot in normal camera mode 🙂 So far I've any tried the PX one and it's great. And I'm happy to launch it with a double press of the power button. Anyone had a chance to seriously compare the Pocophone and PX ones yet?
  19. Seriously, you can flip it open with the protector on top? That's amazing.
  20. Thanks for pointing that out, I was wondering about that too. But it would be nice if there you could see the settings icon in landscape anyway...
  21. Google "retrieve" is pretty flakey IMO... I don't think I've ever been able to restore a back-up from the settings menu. BUT I opted - for the first time ever - to restore from my previous device (Pixel OG) during the initial set-up of my Pro1 and astoundingly it worked like a charm! Apps, settings, wifi, SMS were all ported flawlessly. I still can't believe it worked 😂😂
  22. So... is the consensus still that all the known Gcam ports are still a bit janky on the Pro1? Coming from a Pixel I would love it if there was a reliable port for the Pro1 with good Nightsight...
