Camera unavailable when skype open


When Skype is running waiting for a call the camera can not be used. If you suddenly want to photograph something it takes time to shut down Skype first and mis the shot.

Aside from that the only issue is with the alarm. You can't get to bedside mode directly, you have to go through alarm first.

Turning off the alarm varies a lot! Removing from case puts it in snooze mode. Poking the clock in bedside mode puts it in snoose, after 3 snoozes you can see the shutdown alarm mode. Poking the alarm clock icon turns it off totally for all future days as well.  The alarm is very hit and miss & lacks simple structure.

The home screen or clock screen is very elusive as well, waking up the phone gives a glimpse of it but that is it. Have to use button on top to get to the home screen.

Love the texting word pop up, wonderful to use. Touch screen works well. Hub works really well can see everything going  on at the same time and get to it very fast.

Skype actually works!

Please use plain text.
