  1. A belated update to my earlier post, I followed up my enquiry with another email and this time Fxtec support responded within a few hours. As per some of the previously posted responses, it also mentioned end of year holidays and quarantine for the delay.
  2. What's the average response time to a support request from FxTec these days? I posted a message about 9 days ago, nothing back other than the automated response.
  3. Isn't one of the major benefits of a phone like this tactile button feedback? You'd lose that with keys printed on a screen.
  4. I had this problem today, and as described the problem was that the display half had "popped out" on the top-left side. Popping it back in got it working again, thanks for posting the fix.
  5. Has anyone had issues charging their phone? This has happened to me twice this week, worked again after a restart. EDIT: My mistake, thought I posted to the Lineage 18.1 thread. 😦
  6. If you're willing to spend a few bucks, another build option is to use AWS or a similar cloud instance. It's been a while since I've done it, but in the past I used a super grunty EC2 and built Lineage in under 2 hours. Good to do as a once off, but maybe not so much for frequent builds, especially if it's incremental.
  7. @VaZso there's also this Docker image you can use. It didn't work for me in Windows 7, but worked in Linux and I think the Docker experience is much better if you're on W10, which you must be if you're using WSL.
  8. Interesting, does it work for anyone else on 18.1? Because I get nothing.
  9. Well I guess any app when I'm typing that doesn't have a built-in emoji button (like Whatsapp and Signal do), for example SMS. I'd be happy to select the emoji on-screen, but I need some way to open the emoji selection if some keyboard shortcut exists. I see the Alt key has a yellow emoji icon but it doesn't seem to do anything. I know there's an option to still show the on-screen keyboard when the physical keyboard is active, but it shows the entire redundant keyboard, at least when using the AOSP keyboard or AnySoftKeyboard. All I'd really want in this case is a small keyboard that o
  10. Also, is there a way to type an emoji with the physical keyboard? So far I've just had to switch back to the on-screen keyboard for this.
  11. Does anyone else have issues where the screen doesn't turn on for an incoming phone call? It's only happened a handful of times so far but all but once I've had to restart the phone by holding the power key for 10s to recover from this.
  12. Wow, that's great news. 😀 Maybe I've become jaded over the years but I was expecting delays until the end of the year. Kudos to FxTec for making steady progress and keeping up the communication. The keyboard backlight video looked interesting, hopefully the light will be more evenly spread across the keys than the bright spots we get currently.
  13. I updated to the 20210621 MicroG build a week ago. I'm not sure if it's because of that or because I disabled my Magisk AptX module before the update, but Bluetooth seems much better for me now.
  14. I thought I'd share more of my thoughts since this post last April. I considered just posting in this thread but didn't really want to necro it after close to a year and my feelings on the phone aren't that much in common. So in no particular order: + It's so much faster and smoother than my Droid 4. For those of you who left the stone age long before me I'm sure this is no big deal, but I'm still happy with instant UI responses and fast internet. Before I was lucky to get a 1 or 2 mbit, especially as 3G was continually reprovisioned to 4G. Now it's tested as over 100! Who needs
  15. OK then, then I can only hope if anything it's an issue specific to the build that I've installed (on MicroG so only one update a month).
