I have been trying to find reviews of the Cosmo since it began shipping and there don't appear to be any in English that are more than just "hands on" clips or reviews.

I saw one post on here but that was it.

What do Cosmo backers think of their device? It's odd that there are so few reviews of it compared to when the Gemini first came out.

In the end, I just didn't like the phone call quality on the Gemini so I don't use it much any more. And the dumb plastic hinge design meant that I kept having to get replacement devices.

Is the Cosmo improved in these areas? Please let those of us who might consider buying a Cosmo know what you think of it.

I have now gone through several Geminis that all eventually start getting cracks in the plastic that covers the hinges.

The latest Gemini has a flaw that the keyboard and the display do not turn on when I open my phone. Has anyone else had to wait several seconds before the display turns on after opening? The Gemini does not even respond to the Esc/Power key

So out of frustration with LXQt, I had not bothered using my Gemini much on the Linux side but I just came back to it recently.

It turns out that you can actually use KDE, you just have to make sure that its global keyboard shortcut daemon is not running.

You can find it within the KSysguard task manager. The process name is kglobalaccel5. Just kill it and your keyboard will work as normal.

If you don't want to have to keep killing the process, just have root make kglobalaccel5 non executable

sudo chmod 444 /usr/bin/kglobalaccel5

The downside of not running the global shortcut manager is that KWin shortcuts will no longer work. But on the other hand, KDE Plasma is much better suited for touch use and the task bar can actually be used, unlike in LXQt.

You can also set up KDE Plasma to put applications' menu bars inside of your panel and save vertical screen real estate.

I've had this bug for a while but never wrote it down until now.

On my Android side, I have DAVx5 set up to synchronize contacts via WebDAV. They all appear in the list, however when I am in the phone dialer and type in a person's name, it literally never returns the results I expect.

So, for example, if I have a contact named Zirgo Fleham, and I type "zirgo," it will not show the contact in the search results. Oftentimes, it returns names that do not even have the search string in them.

This bug only happens in the Phone dialer, however. If I search in the Contacts app, then things work as expected.

I downloaded third-party dialer apps and they don't have this problem, only the default Dialer.

I just got a replacement Gemini and the bug exists on this new unit. I'm not running 8.1 though since I want to keep my root setup for now.

I pretty much gave up using Linux on my Gemini since I now use it as a primary device and need apps like OneNote and aCalendar and synchronization with my Samsung watch.

Has anyone tried KDE on it lately? Last time I used it, most of the keys didn't work properly.

If thing have improved, I might reflash and try again.
