Exactly my thoughts. The phone looks really good (especially that insane battery..), but some future software would be nice.

Anyone got ideas on the battery llife?

Battery life is superb.

Just looking at status right now, I've had 14hrs since last charge with 4 hours SOT and I'm still at 60% and estimated to last until 17.00 tomorrow (it's 21.00 now)

Bootloader is locked out of the box, but doesn't verify signatures before booting (so SPFT can be used to bypass the locked bootloader), it is also unlockable in a Nexus-like fashion if you want fastboot support.

It'll work with any US carrier, this phone's got amazing LTE band support.

Battery life is good, but the power management software is a little too aggressive for my liking. When I have time to do full benchmarks (with my usual optimizations, including limiting the aggressive power saving) I'll post more info.

The Android Pie navigation is part of the stock launcher that Google ships on Pixel and Android One phones, it's not actually built into Android. I haven't tried getting it working on the F1 yet, but it does have it's own implementation of fullscreen swipe-up gestures in Smart Assistant

EDIT: I'm not actually positive about that first part. Either way, it's something that's not included here.

For root you need to use Magisk 17.3, it doesn't work with Magisk 18+ (not good, hoping we find out why soon). To remove encryption you must Format Data in TWRP and then flash this zip BEFORE booting back to Android: https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...crypt-t3817389

Correct, but you must visit the settings and enable OEM unlocking first, and the command is "fastboot flashing unlock" for this one. Also the bootloader doesn't verify signatures if it's locked so all this really does is allow you to use fastboot to flash things. SPFT also works so this is insecure but on the bright side it means the phone is virtually unbrickable. I would love to see XDA add a forum for the device. I'll also be working on it a bit.

Power management is fine if you turn off the on by standard Duraspeed.
This basically shuts down all background tasks unless whitelisted

Even with that off I'm easily getting two days

DuraSpeed is not the thing that's murdering my tasks, friend. I froze it and something is still killing everything and disabling my accessibility services (OW!) whenever my phone slips into deep sleep. I've set everything important to not optimized as well. Battery manager off (not really sure what that does? Is it like Adaptive Battery on Google Android?). It's stupidly even killing YouTube when the screen turns off (sometimes). Not cool. Just turned off "Standby intelligent power saving", that's my current suspect. After we manage to get all these weird enhancements disabled, we might be left with a sorta OK Android ROM. Also would be great to find out why Magisk 18+ won't root it. :/

EDIT: I totally overlooked the DuraSpeed menu in the Settings. It's entirely possible that freezing the app just disabled that settings menu but didn't actually disable the system service for it. Turned that off and re-froze DuraSpeed. I'm still suspicious of that standby intelligent power saving though.

I am interested in getting the bootloader unlocked. Putting the command "adb devices" into PowerShell lists the F1, but when I use "adb reboot bootloader", it reboots to fastboot mode but isn't recognized.
