That why you remove/hide all the other “clutter” home screens and leave one or two.

Swipe down from app drawer you get a alphabetically sorted list of apps.

They are all system widgets. No apps have widgets yet until iOS 14 is officially released and apps are updated.

This one is user preference. Android have very small trigger zone and small distance and on both sides. iOS has small trigger zone but you don’t have to swipe all the way, based on velocity of the swipe you can just do a short but fast swipe and it will back. Only left side to go back. However there are apps on iOS that can go forward with right swipe too unlikely we will see that on Android. Both sides pros and cons.

That list of limitations is shrinking slowly. Eventually the battle comes down to ecosystem.

Side note anyone considered the Xperia 1 Mk II?
Unless you are a Pro photographer and use the Photoapp software, then shots can be very nice. For the common shutterbug, the Xperia 1 ii seems not to be all that great using the default camera with just point and shoot.

Sony not many keen to develop as the user base is small. The only reason I'm keeping my Note 10+ Exynos is because the Gcam port I'm using is frequently updated and the photos are incredible. Since I don't game on my phone at all, I might look to get a Note 20+ once the prices drop sharply as with every other Samsung as there are already developmental work on Note 20 Exynos Gcam port. Devs are already discussing it on the telegram group I'm in.

My calls coming in cannot display my contacts name. Haha

My contacts normally saved with +65 xxxxxxxx

And it doesnt display the name.. calls coming in is without +65 so maybe it doesnt recognise

All these settings issues are due to purchasing non-local, Snapdragon versions?

i’ve been looking at prices, i think S20 Ultra at around $1200+ is a decent buy

but must pay more than that got SD sets



side note:
is it easy to get good full screen tempered glass protectors for S20 Ultra?

i had lots of issues in the past with good protectors with Samsung S series.. so i’m cautious of the curved screens

Had the same issue with the S7 edge! Eventually went without a screen protector (after 3 or 4 tries...).

Current screen protector on the S9+ is good though. Read that the S20+ comes with a pre-applied screen protector?

even if there’s a pre-applied one it’s just a film that won’t last
