Hard to belive, that the Pro-X is deliverd bevor the Pro-1 is fully delieverd.

I agree. It was my clear understanding that the ten devices were ordinary Pro1s in the blue Pro1x shell.

Yes this is what I always had in my mind as well but not sure where I read it.

Yes what I would expect from the march batch (which march is another question 🤣)

I'm curious what was bad with the shifted keyboard. I thought they made them like that so that the most commmon keys are along the center. So I guess that doesn't really work well?

I think its a personal preference thing I've never had an issue with it shifted 🤷‍♂️

I think it was not bad in general, but
- it was not perfect as per personal preference like @_DW_ wrote
- it was not good for international layouts

The latter was my main problem of not buying it, but the former was also a problem for me, but much smaller.
So that leaded me to QWERTZ keyboard instead of QWERTY what I would originally chose unless there is no national keyboard for my language which is very unlikely.

However, if there was only shifted QWERTY version, I would have been bought that one, but unshifted QWERT(Y/Z)  version is much more convenient for me,  even as the QWERTZ version does not match my national layout, but at least it does not have huge modifications of the standard one.

It is not that the idea is bad as such, the main problem is that it s non-standard. Had they shifted the numbers along with the letters it would have been substantially better.
BUT things are NOT really centred this way! The centre of letters is between the G and H as also acknowledged by the F and J markers. On the shifted keyboard the G is on the key almost exactly at the physical centre, on the standard layout that is the H. So the layout is half a key off center to either side on both layouts....
For the lengthy story see this

I want the pro1 keyboard layout to match with my desktop keyboard, since I will run linux proot on pro1 and want to have my emacs+vim keybindings and muscle memory matching across devices.

Hey everyone!

Just got my pro1-X and I am loving everything except android 9. 🙂
the form factor is a delight. I found the finger print reader weird until I realized that with more fingers i could unlock it in both landscape and portait. I definitely regret no tasking for lineage os, and might need to flash it later, unless android 10 is on its way. I think the full screen gestures + no menu bar for the phone would just work better.

Happy to answer any questions for people on the fence.

 

How has the camera been on it? And what OS are you using on it? I am going to use this phone for taking photos on ebay, and want to make sure that it is still suitable for my needs. Has the software been improved with the camera button with the focus. 

Thanks

 Camera is fine, its no Pixel. Android 9 stock did the device a huge disservice. I replaced it with LOS 17.1 after a few days. Camera, focus and other things work great with LOS.

Cool! I must have confused that with MicroG - because the reason I didn't put MicroG on my Sony Xperia 10 with Lineage is that it's not available for this device...

So has anyone actually done that on the Pro1X?
OP maybe, which version did you order? Have you made changes to your OS-setup, installed, switched...?

Mine came stock with android 9, but I replaced it a few days later with LOS 17.1 Sideloaded the Gaaps as others have said. Only issues I've run into is instore google pay no longer works (supposedely I can flash Magik and root to get it to work, but I haven't yet). BOA and other banking apps are behaving as are other google apps.
