Wonder why this hasn't been pushed out OTA?

Anyone got any ideas when we're hoping to see the next firmware release? Been several months since Google Assistant was borked.

You can increase the font size in the settings
Text isn't everything, though.  Doesn't it also make icons smaller, buttons and other widgets harder to aim for, and everything generally harder to see?

(Remember that not all Gemini users are young…)

I've set the dpi to around 600 and it's been ok. the accuracy of the touchscreen is pretty good so i've not found any problems aiming for things. Sure, i've probably halfed the years of good eye sight I have left but it's better to burn brighter etc etc

If you use a Launcher like Nova you change icon size, text etc to suit. I haven't noticed any UI elements being unreadable to be honest but I guess it depends on how bad your eyesight is . The good thing is you can try it and if it doesn't work for you, you can always  g0 back to the original setting.

Apart from that, you will find that the left bottom "menu arrow button" does not respond anymore if you change it to 600dpi.

So is there a workarround for the arrow button? I sure need that button or any other way to see all my apps. But i do like the 600dpi screen. Many of my frequent used apps perform way better.
Btw normaly i swipe up, but thats not working aswell.

My left arrow works fine on mine?

Mine as well. That's strange. Chubby fingers ? 😃

It remains surprising to see how the (Google) apps entirely change their appearance.
Try Google Maps, for example.
It does have inconveniences. With Google Maps I suddenly loose the 'bicycle' symbol as to select a route for bikes.

yeah me too - no sign of bike route here either. I've been using my Gemini in this configuration for a while now. I reckon of Planet could sort out some of these quibbles this might be the best set up for the Gemini. The fact the home and back buttons are at the bottom of the screen makes interacting with it much more satisfying as you don't get screen wobble. Wonder when the next firmware is out?

If you go into developer mode and change the dpi to 600 or above a few cool things happen

1) Buttons on the right of the screen move to th bottom. Better experience hitting home and back button as its over the Gemini's centre of gravity
1) Apps like Gmail go into tablet mode. You get a reading pane instead of just a long list of emails.

Just make your font sixe bit enough toread
Thanks for the tip, could be useful, but don't think I will sett it that high though (have it set at 530 at the moment and that is small enough I think).

But setting it to 600 and over made a strange thing happen too: It for instance REPORTS as 552 in the settings when setting it at 600...??? Might be something with my setup, but strange nevertheless...

Mine appears as 594 which is strange! Haven't had any issues so far thankfully!

As i mentioned before, The gemini comes with and app called Data. This is mentioned in the official user  guide on page 109. Its not on my Gemini and its not to be found in the app store, so were is it hiding? Does anyone knows?

It's in development as far as I know. Should be similar to the data app which came with the original Psion 5

n7player is good

Sometimes when I put my Gemini on charge (using the charger which came with it) it doesn't charge the device - it just gets hot. Only happened since the latest firmware

43
Sometimes caps lock turns on by itself when I close the Gemini.
Sometimes when I open the Gemini Google Assistant has launched. The letter z or ^Z is in the search bar
Keys wearing/getting dirty
Bluetooth not turning on at boot and sometimes have to do airplane mode to reset it
Sometimes bluetooth turns off on it's own
Screen is a finger print magnet

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Camera module not working
« on: June 26, 2018, 05:59:07 pm »
I managed to get it working  by booting into recovery, clearing the cache, rebooting, clearing the app cache. All good after that.

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Camera module not working
« on: June 26, 2018, 03:55:41 pm »
I've installed the camera module as per the instructions however it's not being detected. In the camera app there is no option to switch between front and rear camera. I've tried clearing the cache in the camera app but no joy. Any ideas?
