Google Android catch-all

Welp the Titan Pocket Kickstarter has launched:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...

Not great specs, but all I do on my phone is check Discord, Twitter, Reddit, Facebook and Gmail primarily, so it should be fine for that.

Choices are welcome. I've always wondered why there isn't a plethora of internet-GPS-and little else types of phone and data plans for, say, pre-teens and older folks.

The Kickstarter page has a graphic where it's advertising a great feature of "Andriod 11".

Yeah, that's not so good.

Why not? My current phone is running 11 I believe.

One of the basic ways I filter things quickly; if somebody can't do something as basic as proofreading, I'm probably not going to trust them with anything not-basic. I can't count the number of resumes I've thrown immediately to the side because somebody can't bother to check for typos.

Ohhh sorry I totally missed that. I figure English isn't their first language so that's fine with me.

We just ended up with a lowish end IPhone. We could never find anything else we really wanted.

The part of the Kickstarter video where she demonstrates its toughness by dropping it (1:07) was very strange. The sound effects and quick cuts don't help but it didn't look like actual drops? And were any of those supposed to be the actual drop the woman shows and then tells us she "told us so"? When leading into that segment I thought she was going to do something like throw it straight at the wall or smash it with a hammer. Cutting away to an edited image of a phone doing like a bouncing pirouette in a different background doesn't seem to prove much of anything. I don't know why this detail bothers me so, but it does!

Friends, I've got an odd problem I could use some help with. I downloaded a couple of new notification MP3 files today and put them in my notification folder. Oddly though, the system isn't seeing them, as when I go to the notification sounds in the system settings, they're not there. I've rebooted and restarted and so far nothing.

Any idea how I can do some sort of refresh or some such to have the phone see the new files? Thank you.

Okay nevermind, this is odd. When I downloaded the MP3 from the phone's browser, and then moved it from the download folder to the notifications folder, it didn't show up. When I plugged my phone into my PC and copied them from the PC to the notifications folder, they showed up. WTF.

Omg the Titan Pocket has a notification light y'all.

Miss my Sidekick. Notification light, good physical keyboard with lots of OS shortcuts, spinning slide out. Beautiful device.

I've never had a physical keyboard so I'm very excited about it. I almost got a Helio Ocean (remember those?) but then the iPhone 3G with its apps came out so....

It looks like they are making a Droid Pro. I loved that thing and I'm pretty sure... *rummages through drawer* Yup. Still got that little sucker!

Oh wow yeah they do look similar. Makes me even more excited for the Pocket.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip phones?

Just saw they are on sale at Samsung site. Didn't know they existed. Looks interesting. Might have to watch a hands on video

Preording that flip phone on Fi currently offers a $400 bill credit. Made me take another look before rejecting the idea. I'm gonna hold out for a Pixel 6 Pro I think.

So I finally have the Titan Pocket all set up and WOW this keyboard is goanna take some getting used to, but I think I love it. Also the spacebar might be too small, but I’ll adapt.

Anyone have a Samsung phone with the persistent Samsung Cloud Storage notification? No matter what I do it won't go away and thanks to Samsung options to control notifications for their apps are grayed out

Clicking on it just goes to my home screen.

So I've been using the Titan Pocket full-time for a week now and I love it. The only downside serious moving from the Note 10+ is the smaller screen, but that really hasn't been a problem. The camera is also worse on the TP but I don't care much about that as it's serviceable. The thumbprint reader is a billion times better, bluetooth is more reliable, call quality is great, having physical keys is SO. NICE. I'm still getting used to typing on it but I'm getting quicker every day.

Also because the screen is so small, battery life is amazing. I used it HARD the other day, like almost 8 hours of screen time after unplugging it. Still had over 40% battery after all that.

So far there have only been a few weirdsies, such as Google Maps looking weird on this small screen, but I can make that work. Ultimately I am super freaking happy with this thing.

Mine comes up all the time, but I can get rid of it. S8+ here, FWIW. Time for a new one, it's dying.

Friends, pre-orders for the Titan Pocket start tomorrow, 7 PM Pacific time!
