  1. Personally I prefer PocoPhone F1 port but the viewfinder is upside down if you select Night Sight. However, the picture is right way in the gallery afterwards. There is also BSG port (with fixed viewfinder) but it does not provide as great picture quality in very dark situations (noise level is bad).
  2. Interestingly both Ctrl+Alt+O and Ctrl+Fn+O are working. I am using FinQwerty with "QWERTZ to Finnish" layout. Thanks for the tips. Those tiles are very handy.
  3. You can find the switch from Settings>System>Gestures>Jump to camera. It is on by default (I think). You can remap long press of the camera button to launch any camera app with Keyboard/Button Mapper. However, that will disable normal press of that button so you can't use it for taking pictures (focusing still works).
  4. We are talking about c-rate which is derived from Coulomb's Law. See more from here: https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/what_is_the_c_rate So If you have 1000mAh battery and you are charging it 1A then it is 1C charging. For 2000mAh battery 2A would mean 1C.
  5. According to a few years old study, fast charging can degrade battery performance quickly if the charging current is higher than 1.0C. Characterizing Smartphone Power Management in the Wild Here is a very informative graph from the BatteryUniversity. So if you are charging your device over 1C, you might notice greater reduction in the capacity after 2-3 years. Most users are buying new device by then so it is not an issue to manufacturers. However, if you are planning to use Pro1 3-5 years or longer I would suggest to use a slow charger. I have collected a summary from XDA article (2017) how different fast chargers are acting: OnePlus 3 (3000mAh): 1.33C (Dash Charge) Mate 9 (4000mAh): 1.25C (SuperCharge) Galaxy S8+ (3500mAh): 0.86C (Adaptive Fast Charging) Pixel XL (3450mAh): 0.71C (USB Power Delivery) According to Qualcomm, QC 3.0 charges a 2750mAh battery with a maximum current of 1.5C. Google has been trying to tell OEMs to stop using anything else than PD. Google to OEMs: Don’t use Qualcomm Quick Charge; USB-PD is the future Android 7.0 CDD says Google may soon require OEMs to stop screwing with USB-C charging standards
  6. I can't install the latest on update on Pro1. When I press the APK file nothing happens. However, I am able to to install older version just fine. Is it just me? Suggestion: It would be great if there would be an option to schedule only the screen filter. Mostly I use screen filter when I am going to sleep. Now I just manually toggle filter on at bedtime since the adaptive brightness is not working for me very well. (I don't know if I should disable stock adaptive brightness from Android settings when I am using Fx Service). Other than that Fx Service is very good app with flip cover.
  7. I would like to be a tester 🙂. If you are able to create QWERTZ version it would be very nice to see Scandic also. Basically it could be almost identical to QWERTZ with these fixes: Ü -> Å (replace) Y <-> Z (swap)
  8. Here are my tips and tricks for F(x)tec Pro1 Configuring the keyboard layout Right after the initial setup the phone will ask you to set the keyboard layout. QWERTY users should remain unselected and QWERTZ users should select German so that layout will match the physical keyboard prints. However, if you want to modify some keys with pre-designed layouts you can try Fx Qwerty (for QWERTY) and FinQwerty (both QWERTY and QWERTZ) Adjusting the screen size Screen size is not optimal with default settings for landscape use so you might want to adjust it. Go to Settings > Accessibility and select Display size to Small and and Font size to Large. This will prevent cut-offs in the quick settings drop down menu. Preventing unintentional touches Due to the curved display, you might face a relatively large number of unintentional touches. To work around this issue, download Edge Null, which disables touch from the long edges of the screen. The app also has an experimental “Detect Edge Swipes” feature that doesn’t completely disable the touch but allows edge swipes. Defining key combinations and shortcuts Keyboard/Button Mapper is a versatile application for defining various shortcuts. The application can remap individual buttons or key combinations to perform desired tasks. Below are a few examples: Function + Esc = Back Function + Tab = Latest applications Ctrl + tab = Divide the screen into two parts Function + up = Volume up Function + down = Volume down Long press on camera button = Open Google Camera (does not work when screen is closed) NOTE! Long press disables a short press on the selected button. However, this is not a problem with the camera button because Google Camera does not support the camera button anyway. Android's standard key combinations are listed in the article below: https://www.pcworld.com/article/184656/android_keyboard_shortcuts.html Forcing applications to landscape Not all applications, such as Instagram, support landscape mode, even if "Landscape Orientation lock" is selected in the Slider settings. However, applications can be forced horizontally with Ultimate Rotation Control (URC, paid) and Lock Screen Rotation (LSR, free). URC in Forced Auto mode and CSR in Lock Landscape mode places screen to landscape with the keyboard in the open position and portrait in the closed position. If you want to rotate the screen while the keyboard is closed, you must do it manually or turn off the application. Camera app For a better picture quality, you can try Gcam ports. Personally I prefer PocoPhone F1 port but the viewfinder is upside down if you select Night Sight. However, the picture is right way in the gallery afterwards. There is also BSG port (with fixed viewfinder) but it does not provide as great picture quality in very dark situations (noise level is bad). PocoPhone F1 port vs. stock camera app
  9. Finally I had time to re-flash everything. I followed the guide posted by Chen and everything went smoothly. However, the screen issue is still there after January update even after re-flash.
  10. Is this based on Ubuntu Touch GSI (Generic System Image) or is it made specially for Pro1? https://www.xda-developers.com/ubports-gsi-brings-ubuntu-touch-to-any-project-treble-supported-android-device/
  11. It is pretty common that OEMs deliver only security updates every now and then. However, it would have been nice If there was other fixes as well since the problems are identiefied (and even fixed by community) earlier. Even so, I am happy that there is a new security update available and SafetyNet is finally working again.

  13. Thanks! I think that those are default settings that other OEM manufactuers are also using. I don't that the issue is related to those settings. It might be something else like a aggressive battery saving feature?
  14. Download kernel manager app like below and check what governor and I/O scheduler is used at default. - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.simonedev.kernelm
  15. It seems that OnePlus 8 models with curved AMOLED screens are also suffering from this issue. They have screen panels made by Samsung. OnePlus 8 Pro pre-order units reportedly have varying screen issues OnePlus already fixed the issue (and accidentally touching issue with curved screen) partially with recent update. OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS 10.5.5 update brings partial fix for 'green-tint' screen issue, plus touchscreen sensitivity tweaks Funny thing is that DisplayMate didn't notices any issues in its review. Maybe they had fully working unit or they do not test screens with low brightness. OnePlus 8 & 8 Pro Offer 'Top Tier' OLED Displays From Samsung: DisplayMate
