  1. Well, that's funny. 😕 If I understand it correctly, you get results confirming supposedly higher level of compliance ("integrity") with an alternative OS than with the standard Android as delivered by the device producer? Do I assume correctly that this "Play Integrity Fix" cannot be installed on regular Android (at least not without rooting the device)?
  2. OK, i.e. the same result I have. 😕 Thus it's indeed likely that I may need to lock it (I didn't unlock it, but it was probably shipped unlocked). Thanks for the links, I'm aware of the manual, but I understand that there may be additional information to this discussed on the forum.
  3. OK, thanks. Still - could you please check the results of the small application from Google Play mentioned above on your device? Regarding "...I forgot to lock it before setting everything up" - do you mean that locking it afterwards couldn't be done / would have the wanted effects any longer?
  4. Hello, Since about 3 weeks ago, I started having an issue with using applications in my "work profile" on my Pro1x device (e.g. using MS Outlook to access my work e-mails - I work in an enterprise environment). This turned out to be due to one of Google APIs used to check "device integrity" apparently started to result in a failure. Unfortunately, no details are available regarding the reasons of that failure. Before proceeding to e.g. FxTec support, I'd like to know if the issue is common on other Pro1x devices as well, or whether it may be e.g. due to some configuration or application
  5. Unfortunately, I don't get any events generated when touching the sensor. 😞 The list of input devices is more or less the same: QX1050:/ $ getevent add device 1: /dev/input/event6 name: "bengal-idp-snd-card Button Jack" add device 2: /dev/input/event5 name: "bengal-idp-snd-card Headset Jack" add device 3: /dev/input/event0 name: "qpnp_pon" add device 4: /dev/input/event1 name: "goodix-ts" add device 5: /dev/input/event4 name: "madev" add device 6: /dev/input/event2 name: "gpio-keys" add device 7: /dev/input/event3 name: "Fxtec Pro1"
  6. Well, "for Tmobile"... 😉 I assume you mean TMUS, right? It's just that my network is also T-Mobile (Czech Republic) - obviously, there's nothing in common between the two from the technology point of view (not more common than any two random mobile network operators anyway), it's just funny that U.S. people believe that "Tmobile" is clear and unique distinction. 😉
  7. I decided to post my fingerprint sensor related issues / findings (Pro1x with standard Android, not rooted): At the beginning, I observed the same behaviour as described above for Pro1 - the fingerprint sensor stopped working after some time and only phone restart helped. After some time it happened to me that restarting didn't help any longer. To my surprise, I found out that my previously registered fingerprints disappeared from the system settings as if I'd never initialized them. After teaching my Pro1x to recognize them again, it continued to work more or less the same way as
  8. No, the VoLTE setting was not off originally, I turned it off explicitly after I discovered that having it enabled led to worse phone call quality. I can enable it again, but I don't want to do that with this firmware version. I'm not attaching a screenshot because the Czech messages wouldn't be useful for majority of forum users - just believe me, please. 😉 Mobile voice network type and Mobile data network type both show "LTE".
  9. I'm sorry, but I don't see the band there, it states "LTE band unknown". It also says "Active connections (0)" and "N/A" for all of "DL EARFCN", "UL EARFCN", "DL Freq" and "UL Freq". The "Cell bandwidth (kilohertz)" value seems to be -1 converted to an unsigned 32-bit number. I don't know if there's anything useful in the Advanced data section, but I doubt it - apart from MNC/MCC, etc., I see only "Channel number" (6200), "Data network type" (13) and "Radio technology type" (14 - apparently meaning LTE).
  10. I'm sorry, but the free version doesn't seem to provide this information. Regardless of what the price of the paid version is, I'm not willing to provide my credit card information to Google (Play/Pay) and I suspect that there's no other way to get the full version even if I'd want to pay for it (feel free to consider me paranoid 😉 ).
  11. I don't see much useful information in Network Monitor either - there is information like Cell Signal Strength and LTE RSRQ, but columns like LTE Cell RF Channel (not even mentioning LTE Cell Id) are empty... Regarding Preferred network type - I allow the last/widest option (NR/LTE/TDSCDMA/CDMA/EvDo/GSM/WCDMA); obviously, some of these technologies are not available here, but that shouldn't matter. Regarding Serial No. - do you mean IMEI (in my case ending 137664 for SIM slot 1 and 168669 for SIM slot 2)?
  12. First of all - as already discussed earlier in this thread, I disable VoLTE in my configuration (and enabled voice over Wifi only as the last resort if not mobile network is available) because it led to lower voice quality. I understand that this option may not be usable for people in locations/carriers not providing other network options for voice calls, but that's what works best for me. As far as LTE Discovery app is concerned - I installed it (the basic free version, i.e. no Pro). Note that my phone is not rooted (and I'm not willing to change that because it would limit usability of
  13. As far as the GSM protocols, etc., are concerned - I may be wrong, but I believe that this area is nowadays covered by the phone chip rather than the phone firmware. The chip isn't specific for Pro1x. In other words, it doesn't seem to be likely that the issue with radio communication observed by some Pro1x users should be related to missing part of a GSM communication protocol. Yes, it may be related to a particular configuration for the device which influences the behaviour of the on-chip implementation, or it may be related to some hardware issues (antenna), or possibly other factors, but i
  14. I may be wrong, but my understanding is that the funding has been needed also due to the new CPU requiring changes in the codebase (remember that the CPUs are not only pure computing power, but they embed rather significant amount of functionality including the communications, etc., and a different CPU thus leads to a necessity to update and test the drivers specific to the particular device)...
  15. As already mentioned before, I use my Pro1x not only for data access (both regular mobile networks and Wifi), but also for calling (outgoing and incoming) and sending text messages using the traditional SMS (and also MMS if necessary). I disabled using VoLTE (voice over LTE) and also changed the priority for voice over Wifi to make it the last resort in case of Wifi being the only connectivity available (i.e. no mobile network coverage), because the call quality was rather bad with both VoLTE and voice over Wifi, but it works for me without any considerable issues apart from this (in addition
  16. Interesting. However, considering that you use a separate SIM card from the local provider, you could also ask the service provider to disable VoLTE for your SIM card in their HLR (OK, I know it isn't called HLR in 4G any longer, but it's still the same thing 😉 ). You'll probably need to be a little assertive and persist on getting your case passed from the call center agent to the technicians, because the call center agent may not even know that such disabling might be possible and the technicians could do it, but it's worth trying...
  17. If you disable VoLTE (option just before the network technology preference within the mobile network settings), it should perform the fallback to 2G or 3G depending on their availability (and it does so for me). If it doesn't work that way for you, it's the matter of the particular network configuration controlled by the particular network provider, not a limitation of Pro1x (admittedly, the network probably may be configured that way, although it isn't a very wise choice).
  18. Simply allow all types of network technologies instead of restricting the selection to LTE only. If you don't allow anything but LTE and disable VoLTE, there's no network remaining for you for voice calls. If you allow everything, the phone still prefers LTE for permanent connection, but uses GSM as soon as a call is made or received. BTW, partly related - in my experience, it's better not to allow calls over Wifi as long as there's some mobile network available, because quality with the Wifi calls hasn't been optimal either. However, that may be due to other factors (many competing Wifi
  19. I don't know current status of network technologies in various parts of the world (US or elsewhere), but Name_not_avail mentioned setting hir/her Pro1x to "GSM only" (resulting in quick battery consumption), so it seemed to me that GSM was available in his/her area...
  20. Unified view on multiple e-mail accounts works well with K9 mail and you don't have to pay for the BBHub application nor be bothered by the advertisements. Yes, the original BB Hub on BB10 provided more, but since that doesn't work with the Android version any longer, there's little point using the BBHub there (I tried it and left it after some time). K9 works nicely in landscape mode too. 🙂
  21. Do you know that you can select LTE network, but disable VoLTE, i.e. enjoy higher data transfer speeds and longer batter life while having no problems with voice quality?
  22. Explicit confirmation that duties/import taxes are on you shouldn't hurt, because that's always the case in situation like this one. Requesting additional money for delivery on top of what they asked when taking the order is very strange at best, especially if they already did deliver to the same "region" recently (at least on behalf of FxTec if nothing else, because my "region" is hardly different from yours from their point of view).
  23. I don't think that such a comparison among networks makes sense. I have no objective measurement and I expect that the same is true for people having issues. It isn't clear whether the problems observed are due to issues with particular devices, particular bands or even configuration of the particular mobile network (yes, there are many other differentiating factors apart from just the network bands / frequency). It isn't clear what is being compared - voice quality? Data speed? Ability to connect to the network at all? ...? I just provided my subjective experience based on comparison with sub
  24. I won't comment on the other statements, but (as an owner of Pro1x having used it for about 2 months now), I can comment on those listed above: - I don't see so many bugs, and the few I observed have acceptable workarounds (yes, I'd like to get those bugs still fixed, of course, but no, I wouldn't call the phone "riddled with bugs"). - I haven't observed any issues with connectivity / reception - on places with poor mobile signal (yes, I tried using it on such places), the behaviour is well comparable to other phones (Nokia E7-00, BlackBerry Q10). - I haven't observed anything l
  25. IMHO, the R&D argument doesn't make much sense in case of Expansys buying the devices from FxTec (unlike from the other scenario 😕 ) - obviously, FxTec might give them some discount, but they (FxTec) would still need to cover the R&D costs through devices sold via wholesale.
