  1. I'm using this myself: https://www.gearbest.com/stands-holders/pp_009997192467.html?wid=1433363 Works pretty well with anything up to and including the size of Mi Max Prime. Yes, You won't be able to open the keyboard slider, but realistically - why would You do that while driving anyway? Cheap as dirt, doesn't hurt to try methinks. Mind You that depending on the plastic that your dashboard is made of You might need to glue a piece of rubber to the inside of the mount clamp to avoid it sliding off. But it is a good design imho - doesn't vibrate with the car's engine, doesn't obstruct
  2. I think this discussion is as old as li-ion batteries in phones. It was a common sense habit to discharge completely and then recharge fully anything with Ni-Mh batteries inside, i.e. early mobile phones among other things. With the dawn of li-ion batteries people were told this habit no longer makes sense, and there's even some who claim it's harmful. I have that habit baked into my phone usage patterns so deeply, that even now I still do it that way. If my phone has a few % battery left in it in the evening, I just drain it with a game or some video, and then leave it to charge overnig
  3. Even so that still gives my 855 snappy a lifespan of close to 6 years assuming the hardware will be as solid as it first seems, compared to possibly up to 3 years on the pro1. For less than half the pesos. And I'm not saying one can't live without kernel updates - far from it, I've had my Mi Max Prime for over 3 years now, last 2 of those without any ROM updates to speak of. It's more of a "having an umbrella and not needing it vs needing it and not having" kind of situation. If there's a serious security bug discovered, like the ssl bleed or the spectre /meltdown stuff they found in chip
  4. I stand corrected then, didn't know this has been confirmed. Not great, but with proper communication *BEFORE* this decision was executed, I think the community here would've been more keen to understand the reasons behind that decision. Yet another show of just downright appalling job by the PR people.
  5. Here's a fairly recent one: https://www.androidauthority.com/fxtec-pro1-review-960653/
  6. Not because of the miscommunication (I will still assume it was not out of malevolence, but incompetence and poor judgement on the part of the PR team in F(x)Tec), but because of a few different factors, I decided not to buy the Pro1 in the end. As someone here already pointed out, because of all the delays, if I could even get hold of the phone in Q1 2020, it will be based on a 3 year old chip that peformance-wise is now on par with 7xx series or maybe even the higher end of 6xx chips in Qualcomm's offering. While I couldn't care less about the performance drop, the chip being 3 years o
  7. With the amount of extra load on logistics companies around Christmas, I would be surprised if they kept their promised delivery dates. I'd say do the IT projects' estimation game and add 50% over anything they promise :) It's ridiculous, but that's the reality. They can't double their staff headcounts just for December, it's not that easy.
  8. The car is ok, so is the phone. You just weren't not holding them correctly ! ;)
  9. Ok, how about with more people on LAN (ableit a wireless flavor of it)? :)
  10. yet I don't see a concentric LAN cable sticking out of the Pro1 :) Good times.... Can this run Quake too?
  11. @WaxberryHow far away are You guys from getting all the paperwork in place for the phone to pass safetynet checks? At that point are You planning to move to use a different OTA provider, or will hang on to AdUps for the foreseeable future?
  12. A week has gone by and noone else got their toy?
  13. If that happens, they'll just repackage them and sell as Pro1 Slim edition :)
  14. So how are LineageOS and SailfishOS coming along? :) Any known ETAs on these being ready to work on a "daily driver" device?
  15. I totally feel for all the frustrated guys who have been waiting eagerly for so long for this phone, but seriously - there are people who have received their precioussss, so get a grip. It's not a fraud, Your phone is coming! I'll likely order mine after new year sometime, when there's no pressure and wait times have eased down. I'm also a bit hopeful that all the internals being a year older, maybe the price will drop a notch too :)
