Hi guys,

I am using mi Gemini as my daily driver. I use Android, because it seems to be only full featured OS so far.
Recently I noticed strange behavior.

My Gemini is sometimes randomly turning off. It happens when battery is about 38%. But it happened about 30% too. But never when batter was full.
If device is in idle mode, it is OK. But when I am doing something - browsing in Firefox for example, or in the middle of call with someone - Gemini screen just turns black. Then I must turn it on by long pressing "On" button. It boots up Android. And if I do same thing (run Firefox) right after boot, it mostly crashes to black screen again. If I wait for few minutes after boot it is in most cases OK (for some time), sometimes I must charge battery and then it is OK.

Anyone with same issues? Or any thougts? From mine point of view it seems to be some problem with battery or with Gemini itself. Because it happens only on energy-intensive activities (which I suppose having phone call or running big app like Firefox is).

I had the same issue, reverted to android 7.1.

No problem since (AND battery time doubled).

The only problem is the firmware notification which is impossible to get rid off....

This raises issues about the Cosmo... While it's possible to keep a Gemini on Android 7.x (or roll back to it), what version with the Cosmo be supplied with? If 8.x, will it suffer the same problems, and if so, will it be possible to install 7.x on it?

The Cosmo is supposed to ship with Android 9, if that will be better or worse than 8 (or 7...), is anyone's guess... tongue.gif

But Planet should be aware of the "problem", so hopefully they will fix it for the Cosmo, and hopefully get that implemented in the Gemini as well???

I sometimes, on Gemini with Android 8, get almost better performance (battery wise), and sometimes it almost doesn't last a full day, so it seems there are just in certain conditions it eats up battery... So to find out what exactly eats up battery seems to be difficult (as someone else have pointed out in this, or another, thread about the battery-perfomance of the Gemini). And the battery usage info in Android is kind of useless as well. I haven't really used my phone much the last two days, but it now shows "Phone not in use" for 1d, 19h, 14m, out of 1d, 19h, 14m time since last full charge. And I have been using it... (and probably at least for a few hours...) huh.gif sad.gif blink.gif
