    For Android users on Android 10, anyone having a problem with the Microsoft launcher and the gesture navigation (hidden navi button)?

    The few gestures I use work fine.

    Here's an interesting idea for companion device (especially for S-Pen fans, @dstrauss ahem)

    Here's a Samsung Tab A 8.0 2019 (model SM-P205, unlocked GSM, it appears on the Samsung page for the Phillipines) that works as a phone and supports S-Pen. I have it running right now on a Mint Mobile SIM with *phone* & SMS service and LTE data & speed. The included S-Pen is siloed; and it works wonderfully with the S-Pen from the Galaxy Book 12 OG.

    Other than restoring my twitches about Android UI inconsistencies, I have to admit being fascinated...

    Thanks, do you have the 2/3-button Navi buttons or hidden navi button option enabled?I'm kinda obsessed with minimallism with regards to my device screens, so hidden menus and navigation are very important to me. But it's grayed out when you select third party launchers as default in Android 10. Something about not being supported. Only works with the Google launcher.

    Yeah, and it's got the 18:9 form, so it's quite easy to hold in one hand. Got mine from the Philippines too.
