The fingerprint sensor on the #FxtecPro1 is so sensitive and yet inaccurate that I've all but disabled it. The Bluetooth is also finicky, it's not pairing with my #QC35. Sure I can use the 3.5mm jack but I like how easily my Bose pairs with multiple devices.
OTOH, the #FxtecPro1 keyboard is cool, and I'm back to having normal battery life on a device, yay! (50% in 12 hours, regular usage; while the #Pixel2 drained 40% over the same time just being IDLE on the table.) And the display looks great! I just have to get used to its curves, holding the phone in a way so as not to touch the display on the curved sides too much and triggering stuff unintentionally. Easier when I have the qwerty keyboard out, of course.
Next set is taken with Open Camera https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.sourceforge.opencamera - refer to prev tweet for photo descriptions.
I find this app focuses better but the contrast/colours don't look natural. also image file sizes are halved. more testing needed (probably need to play with the settings)
Got this clear soft case that's meant for Huawei P20 Pro which fits the #FxtecPro1 pretty well. It immediately solves some issues: adds protection against scratches on the back, esp the camera; better grip, less accidental touches on curved part of display; no triggering the sensitive fingerprint sensor. However as the port positions are different I'll have to mod it to access the USB-C, 3.5mm jack and more. One good thing though the camera cutout already fits so my pic-taking isn't interrupted!
Found a gcam port that works pretty well - only limited testing so far but already amazed by the results. Portrait mode working fine too (although I won't share my scary disheveled mugshot). Thanks to Oliver at t.me/fxtec_fans
With the above-mentioned gcam port, re-creating the pics from the first toot in this thread (https://mastodon.org.uk/@cybette/103653930433110815) - brings out so much more from the already great #fxtecpro1 camera. #shotonfxtecpro1
indeed. most devices perform well with plenty of light.
