  1. You just did so - pollute the thread that is. Placement of buttons and your unwillingness to install an app to prevent round edges from responding is your personal preference. Same goes to the bloatware you call "UI". Anything other than stock android with the possibility to install your own launcher sucks in my eyes. Fixing errors without the knowledge of software is generally next to impossible if they are software issues. That's like wanting to handle lawsuits against you yourself: you can do it, but if you don't know your way around the laws, you won't really get anywhere. Your hatred for Java is your personal opinion, which you cannot prove to be right (nor can I prove it to be wrong, because you offer just that: your opinion, no arguments or anything worth discussing). Brilliantly working 3rd-party software utilities? Are you kidding me? Also even if: how many of those are start-ups doing everything they can to deliver their first hardware product? Right... thought so... Also yes: the keyboard has issues. What are the alternatives, that don't have these or similar issues? What are the alterntives to the pro1 in general? And I mean those that actually perform quite alright compared to the shitty MediaTek SoCs? Thought so. You don't recommend this phone? Fine. Just wait a year or so and most of the real bugs are going to be fixed. No one forces you to buy it with the first wave and if you did, you should have thought before doing so. If you don't have any noteworthy technical expertise, you probably should have waited longer. But as I suggested: venting without arguments (except those basically reading: I don't want to or can't fix anything myself) is just a matter of opinion. It's fine, but you have to remember you are just venting.
  2. Works just fine. Most menus (context etc.) stay white though. Also there's a plugin for turning white pages into dark(er) ones.
  3. Honestly, I just think you wanted to vent. So it's alright. While the phone indeed does have some mistakes, most of them can be worked around and if you want a proper phone with a keyboard - the pro1 is currently as good as it gets (I still have my BB Priv, but due to a hardware lock I cannot root it and so I'd have to use an OS, which is heavily outdated). I also paid about 720€ and while some errors do annoy me a bit, I use this phone as my daily driver and it works as expected. While venting is okay, you don't even seem to be interested in fixing the issues you have with the phone. So not recommending the phone to anyone just because you have issues you do not want to resolve is a bit weird to say the least. It sure is your right and your choice and if you had expected the phone to be completely flawless, you probably should have waited another year or the pro2 if it is ever going to happen - or pick some keyboardless phone (though I'd argue those do have their problems,too).
  4. I've been using *#*#4636#*#* to check some network settings.
  5. I cracked the screen 2 weeks after I got it - and got it replaced a bit over a month later. It slipped because I was careless (had nothing to do with opening the keyboard).
  6. I am using the pro1 since somewhere December and haven't had a single random reboot. I did have some weird screen locks and rotation issues, but it seems to have gone away 😳. So I'm fine now and use the pro1 as my daily driver.
  7. Too bad it's not available in Germany... no idea which one to pick over here since the backside of the phone is really slippery...

    Displaying Black

    Yes, the pro1's screen sucks. It has a greenish touch to it.
  9. I already replied on the other thread, but what I can add is this: no overheating, no reboots unless I want to, screen is cheaply replaced if broken, the PRIV used to tilt weirdly when keyboard was open. The pro1 is a bit heavy and IMO the screen is not as good (but cheap to replace). Haven't used the fingerprint device, but it's not well-placed on the pro1. Everything else is nice and IMO better than the PRIV, though I did install the Blackberry Inbox tool, that let's me organize everything in one app.
  10. I have used the PRIV too and the only really bad thing about was that it lost support quickly - hence stuck on Android 7 or 8. Also no custom roms and bad for RDP. Since I am currently using the Pro1, I feel like it is better at just about everything.
  11. 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).

    Spare Parts

    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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
