Behold The Ford Mondeo
The screen sharing (Projection) to and from Windows is fantastic on Android.
Oh yeah, battery deterioration is a given. On iPhones though the batteries aren't that great, even new, you'll just about manage a day, but with power use, you won't last that. And the iPhone XS that I previously had was the first wireless charging Apple device, but not sure if it was my charger or the phone, but I had to stop using it after a couple of years as it would only charge part way and then start overheating the phone which damaged the battery further. I wasn't into it enough to look into the cause or solution. I could have got a new battery for it, but couldn't be bothered as I was at home so much, it wasn't that important.I've always noticed that the battery life seems to deteriorate quite rapidly after a year or 2. You might find that you were equally impressed with the Fold 2 on day one, but it diminished over time to the memory that you have of it now. That's certainly been the case with all of my previous phones
The roll up screens have been in the works for a while now. If they can get the technology nailed I think we can say cheerio to the Projector.
I’ve just commenced a weeks annual leave, filled the car up with petrol and checked my tyre pressures, we can test it as soon as you like.The real test is when travelling and using bluetooth headphones while streaming, that's where it really drains the battery. Won't be able to test that for a while though.
Just getting fully into the integration of android with windows, it's really impressive.
This dynamic lock so that your phone automatically unlocks your PC when you're within a certain distance and locks it when you walk away is a really nice touch.
Just posting this in case there are people who don't realise you can do it:
Yeah, understood, and appreciatedThat's been a feature with Bluetooth devices for a while now, I tried it.... it worked great. I did it with my phone and my earbuds initially but I ended up switching it off as my phone would remain unlocked when I was just in the room.... not handy with workmates!
I dare say the same issue wouldn't be there for Windows but with Hello I've not really needed to look into certain features.
I would only advise caution
I use Edge on my Galaxy S9 and have done for a long time. I like the auto language translate feature.So it appeared that the android edge browser was sucking a lot of battery for mo apparent reason, so I've switched to the DuckDuckGo browser temporarily to audition.
Edge may well have been the cause for overheating when folded closed also. Liking duckduckgo off the bat, very light and no frills.
I think it may be connected to syncing, although not certain but seems to be an ongoing issue for a few people:I use Edge on my Galaxy S9 and have done for a long time. I like the auto language translate feature.
It's far from the biggest user of my battery and I use it quite a lot.
Ah, perhaps. I don't sync it.I think it may be connected to syncing, although not certain but seems to be an ongoing issue for a few people:
Edge is always using 2 cores of my 2.91 GHz CPU on Android, no tabs open. Battery is draining really fast. I'm sad that a quick search on /r/MicrosoftEdge reveals there is so many people with the same problem for the last months... The usual fix is starting from scratch, but I installed it...techcommunity.microsoft.com
