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).

when I received my Gemini, I started to use it as daily driver. And it is truly amazing. I am carrying it in my backpack in "glasses" pocket. But I want to protect it somehow more when I am not using it. So I decided to buy some pouch/cover for it.
I did not ordered original one, because I do not like that look of it. I preffer something synthetic/textile rather than leather one (actually I had cover made from wood on my OnePlus 3 which I had before and it looked cool).

So please share your tips, or info which cover do you use. Maybe you found something amazing which I did not.

My tips which should work - not tested yet sad.gif

1) Subsonic iStart pouch for PS Vita - https://www.subsonic.com/fr/pour-psp-ps-vit...0192200912.html
I used this pouch in past for my PS Vita and for my ireadygo Much i5. It worked for them. I found my Much i5 in a drawer, and it is actually slightly larger than Gemini. Infortunately I cannot find that pouch now. But it must fit Gemini nicely.

2) Chinese Wool-like pouch - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Mobile-Phon...2851493696.html
I am probably going to order this one. It should fit Gemini nicely and it looks nice.

3) Chinese pouch with belt clip - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Cowboy-Clot...2698854236.html
Looks nice too. Gemini will definitely fit in. It has a belt clip and a carabiner (so you can attach it to your backpack or something). It can also hold few more things that just phone. But it will be much bigger than pouch just for phone.

I just received an OTA update on my Gemini. So tried to install it and it failed somehow.
Beware and do some proper backup before that! In my case it killed my Gemini unit! It is now stucked on boot animation.

I just wrote to Planet for info and will try probably reflash few hours later. (Which will be pain, because I will have to set whole android and all apps again)

Just wanted to warn other users. That's why I am posting this.

Hi gyus,

I recently noticed, that another planned Linux phone Librem 5 was announced. And as part of their presentation they released a video, which you can find on their web:

I saw there something that reminded me GNOME Shell desktop I have on all my computers. I would love to see something like that on my phone. I like GNOME Shell a lot, because for me it is most complete desktop envoronment (supports multiple monitors with different DPI, docking/undocking to multiple monitors works too).
Librem 5 was supported by Gnome Foundation aparrently. So maybe there is some development about this project. But I was unable to find any recent information.

Does anyone know about some development going on in that Gnome Mobile desktop? Any chances something like that could be ported to Gemini (or used in any Linux distro like ordinary GNOME)?
