Even the prototype was good enough for most tasks.
The only downside I see is that I had no proper power saving mode.
So my Pyra had to be turned off while my phone was on and waiting to be used all day.
That's why I used the phone for most occasions.
Else the Pyra yould have been the better...
I wonder what's the difference in battery life when:
- Modem turned off
- Modem on so you can receive messages all the time
My prototype doesn't have LTE so I'm curious on how well the LTE version works.
LTE is important for me.
To be honest, I don't care about the keyboard quality.
As long as it's there it is enough for a gaming device.
I'm reeeealllly tempted to by the IGG early bird for 780€.
On the other side, I don't like the idea of not buying from DragonBox ...
But then I have to wait longer :'(
Such a hard...
Long ago after my first or second computer science semester I did start programming such a thing in GTK.
As you can imagine, the code is a mess for sure ...
If you want to use it anyways and the paths are still the same I can...
In case you don't know my old Pyra post:
It's quite dated already, but what did work at that time does work now as well :)
I checked right now. Even the file manager has touch support.
So you can touch anywhere and scroll down with gestures.
It was my main device back then.
Except doing presentations and writing my bachelor thesis I did like 80-90% with the Pandora.
As I don't like the glossy...
I am using a Pyra prototype since years and the touchscreen does work.
You may trust me with that.
Pyra uses MATE desktop. XFCE is less touch friendly.
I tested both. I like XFCE but because MATE has great touchscreen support I am supporting MATE as standard desktop for Pyra.
For FireFox you...
That Pyra does recognize the different input devices.
A click with the touchscreen is handled differently than a click with the mouse if the underlying software supports it.
A lot of software does. Most of it.
What does not work is grabbing a text document or LibreOffice document and scrolling...
That is simply wrong.
All major browsers (Firefox with an extension) and the default PDF reader on Pyra support touchscreens as phone users would expect them to work.
Tap the screen with the stylus anywhere to drag the PDF/website up/down/left/right.
Telegram also works that way if I remember...
There are situations where I use the touchscreen and want one.
Scrolling PDF or websites for example.
No precision is needed and the screen is sensitive enough to make that comfortable.
Browsing in general feels good with the stylus.
I like it and I would not want to miss it.
