Hi all,
My Cosmo closes nice and tight, but when it is open the hinge is pretty loose and the top is a bit flappy if you know what I mean.

Is this normal for the Cosmo and the Gemini?

Are there any known tweaks for tightening things up a bit? I haven't braved taking the cover plates off my Cosmo yet....

Hi all,
Yesterday I tried using Google Pay but I ran into problems.
Every time I tried, I got an error like, "phone moved away to fast" and "try holding the phone to the terminal for longer".
I was at a shop that was not busy, so I tried several times. I tried putting the phone to the terminal in different positions, and I always kept it there without moving. Always got the above error, it never succeeded despite several tries.

I used Google Pay with this same associated card on my previous phone, and it always worked flawlessly.

Would appreciate hearing anyone else's story who has had either good or bad experience using the NFC functionality.

Hi all,
Does anyone know how to adjust which media players show up in the Cover Display media app list?

On the Cover Display if you:
* swipe in from the right and choose the play icon,
* then swipe in from the left
... you get a volume control on the right, and four media icons on the left. The top one is Google Play Music, and the other three (on my device) are blank and greyed out.

I have DDB2, TuneIn Radio Pro, and Poweramp for my music player.

I wonder what it would take to get these apps to show up here. Does anyone know how to do this?

Hi all, I connected my bluetooth keyboard - I know, I know, half the reason for having a Cosmo is the fantastic keyboard, but I have this one Lenovo BT keyboard with the TrackPoint nipple thing that I love and when I'm sitting at my desk I use the one keyboard for everything: PC, laptop, phone ... it has the bluetooth multi-connect thing. Anyways, on the Cosmo, the single and doublequote and the twiddle and backtick keys make slashes and pipes. I haven't figured out how to do quotes via BT keyboard. I haven't tried plugging in a USB keyboard to see if it has the same issue. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

Hi all,

I thought the battery on the Cosmo was under the keyboard. I even remember reading how the hardware team added a super-capacitor to ease power transfer to the other side. However, when I'm charging, it feels like the top (right under the cover display) is warm, while the other side is cold. Where is the battery located?

I'm also curious what's the little oval on the right side of the main screen? I thought it was a light sensor. However, when I turn on Adaptive Brightness, the display adapts to light levels on the Cover Display side of the device rather than the main screen side.
I can confirm using a Sensors app that the light sensor reacts to something located betwixt the cover camera and the cover display. Same for proximity sensor (which does make sense).
Maybe it is a second light sensor that is currently disabled or otherwise unavailable?
