Today was my best day with the pro1!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Today was the best moment I've had with the pro1. I bent it with my hands, threw it across the room into a wall, I retrieved it and the thing was still on even though the screen was cracked, and the keyboard dislodged from the body! I pulled my sim and sdcard from the phone so I could finish the job. I took it out to my workbench and smashed it to pieces with a hammer. It was truly the most satisfying moment I had with the pro1.


  • The spontaneous reboots for days on end and then stability for a couple weeks, only to start rebooting again.
  • The ability of the camera to take one picture and then move to the settings screen every time I want to snap another.
  • The dropped calls ad nauseum.
  • The screen swapping to whatever application or doing some unwanted action because I so much as looked at the rounded edge.
  • The inability to wifi call or use SMS over wifi.
  • The bluetooth failure to transmit audio to some devices only putting out a weird popping sound.
  • The wobbly screen that rattles because the hinge mechanism is put together poorly. (The nokia n97 worked with zero rattle)
  • The first screen that had a pink line through the side.
  • The antennas/radio that are garbage (I put my sim in a unihertz titan and found out I actually have 4g service in a lot of places I thought my provider didn't have service at all.)
  • The lack of updates/patches.
  • The autorotate feature that just doesn't work.
  • The volume controls that don't work for speaker phone, in call volume, or other externally played sound.
  • The constant popups to us gboard/keyboard when trying to use the keyboard.


Even though I destroyed my phone with a hammer, I want a refund for the time and trouble this phone put me through. I can't think of a worse experience I've had with a phone. I can only hope that a second release comes out that is a bit smaller and a lot more functional.

If a pro2 were to come out as wide and tall as the iphone6 without the rounded screen, decent radios, and decent build quality. I would consider using my refund money to buy fxtec's next iteration. Good riddance pro1.

Seems an awful waste since a) I have no idea why you think you are entitled to a refund for a smashed phone and b) unsmashed, you probably could have sold it.

But if the therapy was worth $700+, glad it was cathartic.

By the way, very little of the above has been my experience.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Sounds like you could be right. Looks like an odd scam. The account created a few days ago using a "spamdecoy" mail-address. It all have an ooze of fake... But I could be wrong of course.

I don't understand the mentality of people who choose to use their time for wit, instead I dunno...community service? Or reading a book to better oneself. 

I have a Unihertz Titan to pass the time, but no doubt I will be ready to buy into the Pro 1 the moment things start settling in. We're a niche audience: This is expected.
