  • Issue#140: Sony - Sony will you please update the firmware of the XBR-65X950B to Android TV? 950B owners UNITE!!!

    I'm extremely disappointed that Sony has not updated the OS of their Flagship TV to Android TV yet. Yes, it has only been 1 year since this TV was released and I read elsewhere that Sony was considering this (so it is possible, as per Sony), but they need enough owners to request this. Therefore, I urge ALL XBR-65X950B owners to request this here: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/chat-gateway.pl?modelnum=XBR65X950B&region_id=1 Thanks!  ...

  • Issue#227: Android - Better Email?

    Coming from iPhone, we LOVED the email interface and how easy it was to use. On our Note 5 and LG v10 we hate having to use the gmail app so that we have all our email clients in one place. The app is cumbersome and awful to use. Any recommendations for an app to use similar to the iphone email interface?...

  • Issue#228: Android - Lock screen pin keys slow response

    Not sure if this is an S6 issue or android related, but the keypad for the pin on the lock screen is very slow in registering taps. It comes down to 2 issues – if I go too fast it misses registering one of the pin#s, and/or it has a very small area where a # can be touched. I don’t have this problem with any other part of the phone (i.e. when it is unlocked) – everything else responds as expected to my touch in the OS or any apps. Even after a full reset back to stock this persists. I....
