Please dont misrepresent me and then talk down to me, and insult me, it will not go well for you.....if you cant take constructive criticism, perhaps ROM development is not for you. These bugs and oversights should have been evident if you tested your ROM before you simply uploaded them....
I would also respectfully request you read my comments again. At no point did I insult you, merely highlighted the purpose of XDA forums and reiterate the nature of experimental open source software. Your response reinforces the impression of a stereotypical entitled user, you provided no "constructive" criticism at all, and resorted to threats. I pointed out how your posts could be seen as entitled and demanding and offered an alternative way of expressing your issues. That right there is constructive criticism, whereas moaning about wasted bandwidth is not. If you're not prepared to deal with buggy software and need a production grade OS, perhaps ROM testing is not for you?
To address your specific issues with Pixel Experience:
It boots, phone calls, text messages, mobile data, WiFi, sound, vibrator, touch screen all works. ROM is usable, for a given definition of 'usable' which may or may not match your expectations.
You need to understand the difference between functionality
. Any decisions about GApps and which apps are or are not included is down to Henrique Silva who is the lead developer of PE. There is a good reason why certain apps are not included and that's because some phones don't have a large enough system partition to store all the GApps, so 'core' apps are installed instead. Android WebView isn't even needed if you have Chrome installed, as chromium is installed as WebView provider. Henrique is ensuring functionality
on as many phones as possible. My part in this is implementation
of said functionality. If WiFi doesn't function as expected or you can't make a phone call then that's up to me to fix. That's where testers come in, a lone developer fuelled by coffee and donuts couldn't possibly envisage and test for every possible use case.
I have no intention of engaging in a tit-for-tat back and forth argument with an anonymous stranger I met on the Internet. If you have something constructive to say about anything related to my implementation of these ROMS, then I'm all ears. Got any suggestions for additional features? Sure, I'll listen and perhaps maybe incorporate it if its within my means, otherwise it needs to go to the lead ROM developer. Want to engage in argument about who said what when? No thanks, got enough stress in my life as it is.
Sincerely, have a nice day. Life is too short to get into random arguments with strangers
