  1. How did you make "Detect edge swipes" working? It does not work for me and not being able to swipe is as painful as accidental touches on edges.
  2. Doubt it will help. I have problems with screen being slightly to the right, it can be felt but can't be shown on photos, however I can lift the screen with nails because it extends little over the top case and I showed it to them and it's a nice place for a dust to get under the screen and it can be perfectly shown on photos. Support didn't quite believe me even after sending videos and when I asked them few times for the location of closest authorized service so they can confirm it, they ignored that question few times. I guess I will try again... They've seen that my phone was dropped once
  3. I guess that F(x)Tec would pick up my current phone and I would have to wait in the line like everyone else leaving me without the phone for a long time. Clove would either immediately send a replacement(which they don't have currently) or give me full refund. If the phone would have to be repaired then they would have to replace the top part of the phone, I think it's the reason of the problem, this also probably could fix the wobble because it's on the connection of upper part. Question is if they can get that entire part to replace(so far no info about spare parts and it's custom made part)
  4. The keyboard of Pro1 itself is great but suffers currently from software issues that are being worked on. Once they fix it it will be a mile better than virtual one. Also it takes a lot of time to learn to use it properly. The performance is also great. The phone looks great with opened keyboard but as soon as I close it I feel like the "magic" goes away. I used Samsung mid-range phones before and I hated their performance and planned obsolescence but now I see that they were much more comfortable to use in portrait than Pro1... not because of size but because of button placement, every button
  5. Hold up, edgy boy. Pro1 is not any "genius" work and you talk about it like Fxtec is some kind of world savior or god emperor and everyone who doesn't follow your Fxtec religion is worthless. I just wanted a $720 phone that is perfectly usable. If you think that posting flaws and telling what is wrong with the phone is a bad thing then you are just a fanatic.
  6. I did not mention letter shifted qwerty being a flaw at all. The wobble is in closed position at the bottom of the phone, it wobbles from the left to right making sounds when it moves. I asked people here about that and so far nobody else had the same issue. By "right side buttons" I meant volume, power and fingerprint sensor. Not the keyboard. I feel like you completely didn't understand my previous post. Where did I want a PC with phone capabilities? I wanted a smartphone with keyboard and issues I mentioned happen in portrait mode. The phone is annoying to use in portrait,
  7. Nice... I wrote both to fxtec and clove.co.uk(because I bought my phone from them), let's see what fxtec writes about it. I actually prefer to get a replacement from clove once they get their next batch because at least when they have it, they will send it immediately unlike fxtec.
  8. The problem with Pro1 is that most design flaws are not related to being a slider. Bad placement of right side buttons(the worst I've seen in any smartphone), bad camera button(the worst I've seen in any phone, there's no press feeling between "focus" and "make photo" stages), loose sim tray that makes sounds, curved screen that in my case I can lift with nails at the sides and only one flaw that the Pro1 has because of being a slider, the wobble on the bottom of my unit, is there because the bottom part of the phone lacks the second support like the top part. It can't be fixed with simple sof
  9. Just to make things clear, the gap in the red circle is there because i can lift the screen with my nails(which shouldn't be allowed to happen anyway) and what the gap looks like normally without any lifting is circled with yellow circle, however in that yellow circle it looks like that at all edges, even left ones. Something like that, the right side of the screen goes a little bit farther than the top part. When I move my finger from the top part to the screen I can feel the difference, unfortunately it's impossible to make a photo of it. I circled how the
  10. Another problem is curved screen, don't know if you already saw that but a lot of dust goes under the screen on curved parts. You can lift the curved screen on the edges even with your nails, there's no protection there. Top and bottom parts of the screen are fine because are flat but curved screen + nonglued screen will be a nightmare in the future, I don't know how it is designed under the screen but if there are some parts vulnerable for dust, there will be a lot of failures. I still don't understand why they put curved screen into Pro1, I don't care about "fancy" look.
  11. I find it amusing that Unihertz Titan already sent their phones and still they had more than double amount of preorders than Pro1 while not many people got their Pro1 yet. Some people are trying to sell their Titans for absurd prices to make money on it. I heard that main issues are software but from hardware side the phone seems great which a plus over Pro1 flawed design choices because software can be always fixed unlike hardware. Btw. I'm 100% sure that there were no Beta testers at all for Pro1 and it was just PR move to show that something was "happening".
  12. After using Pro1 for two weeks I feel like the curved screen is a big mistake. I have big fingers and I find myself accidentally pressing the screen a lot, especially when trying to use a phone with one hand. Null Edge app has problems with swipe, even with "experimental" enabled so if you begin your swipe at "nulled" edge, nothing will be recognized like you didn't even press the screen at all. If Fxtec ever want to produce any other device, I hope they will ditch curved screens. The curved screen is entirely against "function is a key" motto of Fxtec. But this isn't the only design issue of
  13. Isn't it clear by reading review? Keyboard enthusiasts and power users practically don't exists. Playing games is not what average user does I think, at least in my country mobile games are a minority of smartphone users. That's valid point, bashing hardware was out of place but we don't know which bugs had their version, maybe their version suffered from poor performance, we won't know. My Pro1 for example suffers from wobbling, something i hear doesn't happen in other devices. And you missed the point of how phones are designed today. Learning curve must be as small a
  14. I don't need to force it actually. I can just slide my finger from left to right and I head that noise and it happens in every day handling. If I lightly tap bottom right side of the phone when the hinge is I can also hear that sound. For me this is a lack of build quality, especially because no one else experience issues like these it seems. In the video I wasn't even forcing it that much. EDIT: Also, the top hinge is completely fine and from what I see they aren't different in construction.
  15. You can listen to what is happening when I move my finger left and right on the phone, first I show that everything is OK on the top and then I do the same on the bottom, you need to put your volume up to hear that because quality of my mic in old phone is poor: https://youtu.be/dysNIZc5Pyw The same happens the I tap the screen stronger. It was like that from the start, it seems that phones don't pass proper quality checks after assembling. I wish I could ask for a replacement but I know I will have to wait few months for it... Shame on Fxtec. Since you are quite familiar w
  16. Just a question, do your devices have wobbling problem when closed? My Pro1 wobbles at the bottom at it takes away that "premium" feeling. I wonder how many has the same problem. Hook's device doesn't have any wobbles from what he wrote in other topic. It was like that from the beginning for me and I only started thinking about it after I heard that some people experience no wobble at all.
  17. Damn, I wish my unit was like that...
  18. Kinda funny seeing people comparing two biased reviews (android authority vs xda) and of course calling people names because someone said that Pro1 is not worth buying. Also, these are two separate reviews, one is for masses and second is for geeks(do you really expect "normal" people to care about LineageOS or SailfishOS at all?). Android Authority tells actually about some problems but there are things that are unfair or weird, like saying that hardware gives "janky" performance. For me so far everything feels excellent when it comes to performance. But there are still some valid p
  19. Thanks, it's a good news because it means that it's software issue. This problem only happens with Pro1 for me and with all earbuds I have. I hope it will be fixed soon.
  20. Wired, 3,5mm plug. First two days I also had no problems but now there's constant clicking sound. My phone was always lying on a flat surface so no stress for the connector. It also may be an update that broken it.
  21. There's another bug that started happening yesterday: When I use earbuds I hear "clicking" or "popping" sound every half second in right earbud. It's subtle but extremely annoying and noticeable. It's happening with every media file in every app and with every earbud, I started using my old phone for music because of that. Also, despite the fact that SafetyNet certification was "fixed" and current units should have bootloader locked Google Pay still doesn't work. It saddens me that there are so many bugs, there were supposed to be beta tests for fixing all these issues, right? I
  22. Tried both default app and third-part one, same effect. I wish I had a better camera to take photos of the screen but this is all I can do. yes, these were with flash off, taken in complete darkness. Exactly this, gray-greenish wash over everything, like some light of single colored pixel group was being not properly set. I also see, as you described, that instead of losing brightness there's just something going on with colors. Can you confirm that everything is fine as long as brightness is above 50%? I also hope it's a software issue, I wish there was someone with Elepho
  23. Still, Pro1 is quite expensive phone and the screen itself is very bright, even on the lowest settings, my old phone can go lower than what Pro1 can. Also, "too low" shouldn't be less than 50% when it comes to Pro1. As I said, my previous phone could not only go with even less brightness, it also had no problems with colors at all. Btw, there's also a small gif showing the changes, you can see than below 50% something wrong is happening with colors: https://imgur.com/a/bqBUglI
  24. Sorry for double-post but I want to post two more bugs: Backlight of the keyboard doesn't turn on then the phone is waken up with already opened keyboard(open the keyboard, turn off the display, wake up the phone, keyboard is not lighted up) Brightness settings causes major color distortions, making images look bad which amplified by the fact that pixels turn off in AMOLED displays, I've never had anything like that in my old AMOLED phone: here are more about it: Also, the brightness changed a lot between 50% and 100% and colors there are OK, however between 0% and 50% brightness b
  25. I also had a phone with AMOLED display before and did not have problems like that. The difference between black in pixels turned on and off was barely noticeable. Back to Pro1, I have some images on the phone where blacker spots on the picture are completely black and I experience some heavy color distortions. This doesn't happen at brightness above 50%. However I believe this is not caused by AMOLED turning off pixels but because of other colors being distorted, making a difference between almost black and completely black just huge. I can show how this photo looked like in my old A
