That would have reduced the DRAMA of the situation though.

The time is actually written on that image.

Also, surely that's nothing to do with your phone?

That’s his workaround. Every time his phone installs an update he takes a picture of it and WhatsApps it go someone to get the time.

The Garmin Connect App on my phone flashed up earlier today about a MEGA CRITICAL UPDATE that it needed to install to my watch (specifically citing Huawei), based on past experience it's about 50/50 as to whether or not it'll wait until I get home and connect it to my PC via USB, whereby it pushes the update out via the Garmin app on my PC.

However, what it does some of the time (including today) is basically say 'Fuck that' and pushes the update to the watch whilst it's in normal use on my wrist. I can only assume the app downloads the update using my phone's data connection and pushes it to the watch.

Well now I want to know where my update is.

I can only ever remember one update in the past.

Have you got a Hawaii-Five-O phone? The updates always make specific mention of this, along the lines of 'THIS IS TO FIX AN ISSUE WITH YOUR CHINESE HACKERS PHONE'.

Yup, I have the same phone and watch as you.

Clearly a style guru.

Quite liking Sega Heroes so far. Match-three and Sega nostalgia is always going to sit well with me.

I like them too but they're always too complicated.

Yeah, I'm certainly finding that already. I'm already ignoring a lot of the things that are going on in the game.

The Google Now launcher is beginning to get on my tits* and I'm fucked if I'm going to use any Samsung nonsense so what's the current state of the art in terms of third party Android launchers then?

*It rarely recognises the "OK Google" wake-up phrase and uninstalling apps by dragging the icon to the top of the screen just fails hilariously every single time. Digging around in the options to find a particular app is a giant pain in the arse and I'm sick of uninstalling stuff that way.

My usual recommendation of the Evie launcher. Can be heavily customised but day-to-day use is very simple. The stock Xiaomi launcher doesn't even let you remove icons for system apps from the home screen, so I replaced that straight off.

I actually remembered that I used to use the Nova launcher way back in the day and it's still in active development so I'm giving it a shot. The uninstall process is better, although it just gives you a shortcut to the apps properties and you can uninstall from there.

The voice wake up still didn't work and, embarrassingly, I now suspect it's because I've been habitually holding my phone so my fingers sat over the mic. :rollseyesatself: I never had any issue in the past so fuck knows why I've apparently decided to start holding my phone differently!

I'm finding the Samsung interface pretty good actually (One UI, I think they call it now), and don't currently have any major concerns with it. I certainly don't find it to be as hateful an experience as many others seem to have.

It has been a while since I used a plain Android (back on the Nexus 5X before it died).
