I just saw there was a fairly substantial update including a posh package. After the L5 reboot I thought it was broken(buggie) But to my surprise, the basic mechanics of the UI have been massively altered since I started using it. The initial unlocking of the phone now has the battery percentage(though it is very small) so there’s no need to unlock to see if there’s sufficient charge etc. That change is a big help as others have pointed out.
The cellular, Wifi and bluetooth also show their status too so you have that info before unlocking. The clock is also tweeked; a different font and bigger. Something like that can just be preference but I like it. The volume indicator is also different.
The best changes and it is HUGE, are once you authenticate and are in, both the dashboard and swiping from the bottom to kill an app - needs to be done with a very specific touch and pull motion. It doesn’t invoke either accidently now. It is very, very nice. Having the dashboard going back and forth out of control was maddening. And the keyboard space key isn’t the most maddening thing of all now. Since you have to do the specific touch and pull action to get it to switch to the app kill UI function, hitting slightly below the spacebar doesn’t get that flawed cycle going anymore. Very, very, very nice.
It’s essentially like getting the next new iteration of the L5 (fir ;o)
It also did a kernel update. It’s still on 5.18 though.
