BUGS

Wed Sep 16, 2015 11:49 am

Hi everyone,
the Alife P1 Pro is already a very good handset, but some bugs hinder the fulfillment of its potential.
I think it would be useful for Blackview's developers to get a list of bugs found by users, so that they can turn the Alife P1 Pro into an extraordinary device.
I start collecting the bugs already signalled here, adding some and trying to categorise them according to their relevance.
It would be nice if the Admin pinned this (or another) list of bugs on top of the forum, letting users contribute to it and giving some feedback!
(Updated after September's OTA update).

ESSENTIAL

CPU/battery
September's update made the battery definitely last longer, though there is still room for improvements: the still occasionally warms too much when it should deep sleep (by the way, Purdue University has published an open project on such issues, github.com/hushnymous).


IMPORTANT

Wi-fi (solved for most users)
After the september update the problem is solved for most users, but some still lament a loss of wi-fi connection when the screen is off.

Settings/Apps (SOLVED)
The App control page crashes.

Fingerprint reader
It sometimes crashes and leaves the phone open to anyone. (In my experience this happens only after more than a day without rebooting the handset).

Exchange Activesync account
There is no default way of adding an account (WORKAROUND: install an external APK)

Default launcher (drawer version)
There is no possibility of alphabetically ordering the apps (WORKAROUND: use a 3rd party launcher)

Default launcher (no drawer version)
Icons multiplicate randomly, some widgets are unremovable (WORKAROUND: use a 3rd party launcher)


OTHER

Version info screen (SOLVED)
The info screen is misspelled (Andriod > Android)

Hardware capacitive left button
It activates the apps' menu, but the icon represents the task manager which is actually launched by long pressing the home button (ideal solution: provide the possibility of personalising the hardware buttons' funtions)

Calculator widget
It stops working some time after boot (in the first ROM already)


REQUEST

4G data link
Choose through software which SIM to use on the 4G network.

Fingerprint reader
There should be a possibility of setting a delay between the screen switching off and the request of a fingerprint touch (I think the previous ROM allowed it through a workaround).

After OTA update, i found this bug.. When using Fingerprint for screen lock.. It will bypass when we press home button.. It will enter without asking fingerprint or pin.. but if power button pressed it normally will asking fingerprint or pin..

So we can bypass the lock screen when we press home button only.

ESSENTIAL

CPU/battery
The phone gets hot and drains the battery when the screen is switched off and it should sleep, sometimes during regular use, too (by the way, Purdue University has published an open project on such issues, github.com/hushnymous)


IMPORTANT

Wi-fi
It disconnects during phone's sleep

Settings/Apps
The App control page crashes (WORKAROUND: use a 3rd party app to enter the info tab for each app)

applications settings do not crash more 'seems to have been resolved, also the wifi signal appears to have been resolved, but we need more' time to understand
