  1. You are my hero, @EskeRahn. I don't knoe what's wrong with it, but my display kept going to landscape. I turned auto-rotation off, but it still did. Turning off auto-landscape in Slider did the trick. Now whenever I type using the physical keyboard, I just rotate it manually (which is fine by me).

    Thank you a lot for your post! I currently have an odd problem: my screen keeps turning into landscape mode even though I haven't opened my keyboard. Perhaps the gyrosensor or a sensor responsible for it broke? Do you know which of these tests I can try to find out if the responsible sensor is broken?
  3. Not sure if SFOS would support APKs then, but I could see myself using SFOS instead of Android, so I'd pay for a good OS. But it'd have to be easy and most things should be working - then I'd buy a license and switch.
  4. I play ToonBlast. Other than that not playing anything currently, but I'd also rather like to buy a game instead of freemium where I have to pay more for coins or no-commercials-option.
  5. It's a common bug from what I read on here (I've got it, too, when using WhatsApp and listening to voice messages via loudspeakers). I also heard a fix is in the making if I am not mistaken, as it probably is a software error - rather than a hardware one.
  6. Anyone tried USB-C-to-DisplayPort? Tried it with a S8 today and it started Dex, probably even at 4k (haven't checked the info of my screen). I have a suitable cable, but am in bed already, so will give it a try. No Hub and probably no charging though since the S8 didn't offer either with this cable (it did offer sound though from what I remember).
  7. From what I can tell it's left of the front-camera. You can try a diagnostic app (built-in), described in the following post: This helped me figure out where the sensors were and if they work as expected. Be careful with the settings and do read that specific post in full before doing anything.
  8. So.. after having someone properly glue my screen to the pro1 (I apparently did not do it right), I do experience some rattle when moving the screen top-to-bottom and vice versa (in closed state). It is not as annoying as the thread author states, but it is there. Still works great, though.
  9. Nuremberg, Germany. Please get in touch via this forum first.
  10. I still use the BB hub under android, because it lets me manage all communication through one app (SMS is a bit weird with it).
  11. In Germany we call them Teledoof (Tele-dumb) or Telekomiker (Tele-comedian). While they probably got the best network,their support sucks big times.
  12. I haven't taken the test yet, but it really depends on what you type. If it's RDP+SSH and +bash-related stuff, there is much more to consider: visible screen area while you type. Like... typing sudo apt get and editing config is simply painful with on-screen keyboards. Typing regular text works alright via voice and especially gboard. Though I like typing on the pro1 keyboard, because it usually doesn't vanish of I touch the display somewhere by accident (and that happens rarely if I use my pointy fingers while the pro1 is e.g. on my bed). I am not as good with my thumbs. Gonna give it a try later.
  13. Just checked mine. No (ill) movement at all, barely any play at all.
  14. Using it as my daily driver. Works fine and whenever I have both hands free and going to type a long text, switching to landscape mode. Without 4G (I have an old contract here in Germany, which does not yet include 4G) the mobile networks keep switching and are really horrible. Manually switching is better, but cumbersome. Luckily I got another sim I am going to use for data. So this should be fixed. WhatsApp is horrible when using speakers (so are some other apps) - I hope there'll be a fix eith the crackling / doubled sounds. I assume it is because of speaker + microphone position, though. No idea of it's going to get fixed, but it is not a deal-breaker for me. Overall a great phone. I am overjoyed each time I connect to my server via RDP (Ubuntu 18.04) and have a full screen even when I am typing. Thank you, FxTec!

    Okay so the good news is: the sensors appear to be working. The bad news is: my phone does not switch in WhatsApp for example to the ear speaker when close to the ear as it used to do... hm.. Edit: seems fixed after restarting the phone... now apps recognize proximity and brightness sensors. Sorry for the hussle.
