Keyboard "typing quality"
« on: November 30, 2020, 06:35:29 pm »
I got my Cosmo a while ago and use it quite often actually (but not as my main phone). However the keyboard is a bit wierd. The tactile feedback and key placement is actually really really good. I believe at this size it cannot get any better really. However, i have some oddities which happens a bit too often, and would like to hear if its a general issue or if its just my unit. When i type i often either find a key press not registering at all, while I'm sure i pressed the key, OR registering two times or sometimes even three times. If it wasn't for this issue I would be almost as fast on this device to type as on my regular main PC, and i think its a real shame. They keyboard feels surprisingly good to type on though. Others with this issue?

Think if you read enough posts on the Cosmo forum, you will see that this is an issue for some people.

Some people notice it happening more than others.

The "multiple keypresses" issue is called ghosting, and it's an issue on the Gemini too. An user has made an Android image with a fix for this issue, it would be nice if an image with the fix could be made for the Cosmo as well:

Good to know that it can be fixed through software though. Crossing my fingers that something like this will come for the cosmo as well !
