Not sure why - but when I try and apply a live wallpaper - after a period of time, it seems to reset to the stock wallpaper?
Anyone else seeing this?

Does anyone else have an issue with battery life on their Gemini on Oreo 8.1?

Things I've noticed

- battery usage is worse than with Nougat - can not get more than a few hrs out of it
- occasionally turning itself off even when the battery has charge
- sudden battery drain - like 50% disappears in 30 mins
- misreporting battery charge - Android thinks its got 0% left and turns off, when I plug the charger in with the device off it reports 28% - its as though the OS and the battery are out of sync

It's really frustrating. It's liek the calibration and optimisation on 8 is totally out of whack...? sad.gif

Google have approved the latest Gemini OS build - so fingers crossed will be available shortly. Wonder what improvements have been made this time?

OK upgraded my X25 4G Gemini yesterday

- when I tried to install I got an error message - smcard full or something like that - rebooted and went perfectly at second attempt
- set up screen is presented on bot - very simple and elegant set up procedure. Much improved
- the Data app is included - seems like a good start but feels like it's in beta. Needs to have an import ability. It's not clear to me whether this is backed up in any way - so risk of data loss if you have to flash your Gemini? Also when you try and add an image to the cover of your database it crashes
- the Agenda app has been upgraded to include a new view. it's pretty nice. I have my DPI set at 600 - which unfortunately leaves a white bar at the top of the screen
- there are some more Gemini settings - you can toggle Fn Space and the smart button on and off
- my Gemini now responds to volume, next track, start stop, ff, rw via bluetooth when closed
- google assistant now works when closed - I had to reinstall Gemini Voice Assistant from the play store to get the buttons to respond
- I haven't noticed any change to LEDson
- Bluetooth seems a lot more stable - I had issues with it randomly turning off. Haven't seen this issue since the upgrade - so far so good
- there is still an issue with the A Bar - if you un-check AutoHide it intercepts keystrokes making the device unusable. Leave this on!
- I use Nova but new firmware has Launcher 3 installed I think (not sure if this is new since the last firmware??)
- Backing up Notes causes a crash
- Speakers sound MUCH better

Overall a really good update restoring some lost functionality and some new stuff to boot. Well done Planet!

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