After a minute of experimenting, I stopped using the Pro1x as a phone, but I knew the problems before buying. I admire you for hanging in there; it sounds as if it's still your daily. Would that be right? Basically Pro1 had a very loud speaker with limited effectiveness of volume setting. That was improved in a later firmware I think or maybe in LineageOS... Otherwise, microphone is a bit silent compared to other phones. I don't have problems with calling, signal strength / capability is not stunning but usable (my Motorola G6 was a bit worse but it was not stunning either), however, I think my service provider has not enabled VoLTE for me, at least it does not work... It also had a speaker miswiring where left and right speakers were swapped. It was also corrected (in software) in a later firmware upgrade, however, now the wrong speaker works in handsfree mode (which is right next to the microphone) causing worse handsfree capability. It had some radio band changing issue which has caused the phone to restart (it happened for me near a certain point of a motorway but only when I was traveling at one direction) but otherwise it was stable... however, it was also improved in a later firmware and I have no issues on the very same road since then. GPS positioning is perfect for me, bluetooth and NFS are working, also fingerprint reader became usable since I use LineageOS. Mobile network also works well and WiFi signal is also good, however sometimes it drops WiFi connection then reconnects... A few months ago we have found an interesting behaviour... after one of my friends has replaced his phone, he told me when he speaks with me, he hears excessive background noise but not when he speaks with others and also there is no noise when speaking with other phone at his site. I don't know its reason but it was not service provider-dependent or place dependent and during a side-by-side test, call quality was perfect using a Pro1X. (Anyway, generally Pro1X has much better call quality than Pro1 /what you hear and what other-party hears/, except its connectivity issues.) 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
