- Many android apps, some rather important cannot be run, except with google services and play store, but of course those break everything. This is not android support. I’m sorry, but it just isn’t. I don’t expect perfection, but I can’t even run, for example, hangouts, which is not exactly a complicated application.
- I’ve been away for years, and still you can’t remove the self study app/icon, among others.
If I don’t use it, I don’t want it one my screen as simple as that, I had rather thought this had been fixed by now.
- Theming. All I want is a black background and a green foreground, but apparently that is not possible. You have first of all to use an image, it seems, which is just silly. why can’t I just choose a static color? And when you find a black image and download, you cannot use it, or so it seems, before you manually move it from the download folder to the image folder. And once you do and try to generate a theme, it looks absolutely horrible, apparently not respecting you choice of color at all.
I’m sorry, but it’s just not good enough. It is basically exactly the same as it was several years ago.
- I had great issue installing sailfish, because I was only warned about not upgrading to android 10 in the instructions. Not in the supported devices list, or anywhere else, so naturally I did what I was expected to do, and updated. I cannot put into words how frustrating it was to basically be standing with a very expensive brick, as I already have a newer and better android phone that is not supported. This phone was a compromise specifically bought for use with sailfish. Please do write in big red letter where ever appropriate, that you should NOT upgrade past android 9.
I could go on, but those are my main frustrations right now. I’m sure there will be more though.
One thing is that everything may not just work. I expected that, but after a number of years away, I did expect the details of the user experience to be more refined. Honestly.
At any rate, I am happy to be back, but the sad fact of the matter is that I may not be able to stay, end it has not exactly been a cheap experiment either, which again, is not okay. You have to get what you pay for, or it is simply a bad product.
I’m sure I’d be offered a refund if I asked, but I’d still be left with an expensive phone that I have absolutely no use for, and unless I can somehow install the original android firmware, or whatever it’s called, I can’t even sell it.
I suppose that’s my frustation rant over with. Hopefully I’ll calm down, but it won’t be easy, because I’ll be reminded of this disappointment every time I cannot do the most basic things I’m used to, like chatting on hangouts, paying with my phone, using my phone for authentication when login into the public systems we use in Denmark, and so on and so forth.
Anyway, best regards and may the future be brighter.
