I have decided to but my Gemini up for sale. It has been my daily driver for about a year and I have enjoyed using it. The keyboard is great and made typing so so much easier but on recent reflections I have noticed I have effectively stopped taking pictures over the last year. This is a combination of the quality of the external camera, the ease of use and the default orientation (the latter probably fixable). Furthermore my main use case for the Gemini (coding on the go) never really materialised due to screen size not really working with the IDEs available.

So I have spent a week reverted to my previous phone, a Wileyfox Swift 2X, and have adapted back to the lack of physical keyboard easier than I thought I would. With the other conveniences of this actually very good phone have led me to the decision to part ways with my Gemini.

This will mean I will no longer be able to continue development of my 2 Gemini apps, GeminiLED and GeminiTorch but I will leave them in the Google Play and the source code is on GitHub for anyone to pick up and develop. I will help where ever I can, but won't be in a position to test.

I will probably still pop by the forums occasionally but good luck everyone with your Geminis and Cosmo futures where applicable.

Thought after a couple of days use I'd drop my thoughts on 8.1 into a thread for others to add to add detect common themes.

Biggest concern I would say is that battery life has diminished noticeably. Completely unexpected but on 7.1.1 I am on at about 30-40% at the end of the day, 8.1 15% has been the best so far and that was on a day I used it much less than normal.

Slightly frustrating that the Plant apps are now hard wired in so you can only disable. I preferred the evenly spaced icons on the app bar to the bunched left/scrollable version we have now. I would disable app bar but I use the force rotate (must work out how to achieve this and map the Planet key to do it blink.gifsmile.gif )

There are some nuances that come with Android 8.1 I find irritating like 'app x is using battery' nice idea but I want to be able to swipe it away rather than have to disable it.

Just recently I have noticed the quality of the display has deteriorated. This seems to be mainly associated with displaying dark colours (but not pure black). It is most noticeable on the home screen, icons and wall paper and when watching videos on Kodi. On the home screen it makes the wallpaper look very light and loses sharpness as do the icons.

Changing settings in Display, Miracast(?) has some effect but I can't get it perfect.

Has anyone else seen this? ie has a software update introduced this 'feature' or is my screen potentially on the way out?

I'm sure I'm missing something very simple somewhere but in Linux (Debian running in UserLAnd) I have 2 keys not mapped correctly. They are / and £ which both currently produce ? as does ? so not sure if that means don't know what to return or all 3 are mapped to ?

£ isn't too crucial for how I intend to use my Linux environment but trying to work in CLI without a forward slash is lets say 'interesting'!

Anyone able to point me in the right direction please?

I've had this issue on other Android devices so it's not a Gemini issue as such but has anyone found a way to get the WiFi to actually turn off completely when you switch it off? Mine usually shows as being on in the battery usage more settings even when it is showing off every where else?. If I reboot my device while WiFi is off this normally corrects until next random time.

I've done all the usuals, turned WiFi scanning off and even setting the WiFi off while asleep function was helping for a while but it's gone back to the old behaviour. It really shouldn't be this difficult!!
