  1. Kind of obvious, but AI Dungeon 2 works great because you type everything! 😁😁 Stardew Valley is okay. It supports the default keybindings of the PC version, so you can use the keyboard for most things... except actually interacting, so I've been using on-screen buttons for that. The modding API (SMAPI) has been ported to Android though so there might be a way to have full customisable keyboard controls.
  2. Bet me to it! Temtem is fantastic on this device. Make sure you install FinQwerty so that Esc works properly. I've just been using the base keybindings though and the game itself doesn't have a way of changing them.
  3. Well, I hope someone does. I'm not sure if it'd be Fxtec. When I went to the London meetup I got the impression that this is their one very specific niche that they want to work on and perfect. I might be wrong on that though. If a portrait Fxtec doesn't appear, I think it's more likely to be done by a company that specialises in filling in niches, like Unihertz.
  4. Yeah, sounds quite sketch. But, they provided a possible root cause so hey. It may help the devs (and people in the community doing their own fixes).
  5. Agreed. Blackberry isn't even really a competitor just like Gemini and Cosmo; there's some crososver but it's another niche. Not to mention that at least the Blackberry brand had the power to have keyboard devices shown in store. It's also another justification for people to go "I guess not enough people want keyboard phones!".
  6. If BB took the Priv and just refreshed it (more efficient processor, bigger battery, fingerprint sensor) I probably would have gotten it!
  7. They were always terrible with having fluid software... but I loved all their hardware. I know the die-hard enthusiasts will scoff and say that the Priv/Key keyboards weren't as good as the old Blackberries and while that's true, they were still a hell of a lot better than the software keyboard. Not to mention some of us are way better with portrait qwerty than landscape -- I'm still getting used to it!
  8. Thanks @FlyingAntero I'll give it a go.
  9. Does anyone still make keyboards like on the bottom left of this photo? I still think my ideal phone would be a re-hash of the N950.
  10. Admittedly, I haven't had a look at the teardown to see what the internals look like so maybe that is the only realistic place they could put it? Agree about the case though. Should stop it from being triggered just by being held in the hand, and should make it easier to find and prevent Partial Fingerprint scans. A flip case where the flippy bit blocks the fingerprint sensor would be wonderful but... one step at a time 🙂
  11. That Pixel mod seems to be really good except for the Night Sight -- This is the only bit of 'jank'. I'm not sure how to configure the Gcam ports though as I haven't had time to look into how you change the config (this port doesn't seem to have the settings mentioned in FlyingAntero's post). But that aside, the picture quality is miles better than the Stock Camera. It's worth installing just for that. The selfie portraits come out pretty well as well.
  12. I agree with this somewhat and I can see the idea behind it, however imagine if the fingerprint sensor were the same distance from the power button but above it instead of below it (and the volume buttons moved, obviously). It would sit perfectly in landscape to use with the left index (presumably you're using both hands if you have the keyboard out) and this wouldn't be an issue. I love this phone, but I'm genuinely curious to hear from Fxtec what the justification was as surely they noticed this. I don't agree with every design decision but I can usually see where they're coming from.
  13. I'm just imagining how loud it would be if it was missing! But even with them there, it's still a pretty loud clack imo. Edit: This is in many ways my smallest concern with the phone. Just an observation 🙂
