android impression

Just for giving my first (and last) impression on Android on rock64. To try it, i flash android 8.1 on a SD card.

First remark is that my screen (1920x1200) is not recognized, fortunately, a standard TV is. Then, after booting, i was able to change the language, but my Azerty keyboard was still not recognized; apparently Android only knows qwerty keyboard. To be able to use my keyboard, i had to install a software found on the net (thanks to google), even if android says that this software can record keyboard entries, password,... Angry .
The good thing, is that everything seems to work (wifi dongle, wireless usb keyboard+mouse). The videos (youtube,...) seems to be more quicker than with ubuntu 18.04. The bad thing is the UI: what an horrible UI which is absolutly not practical. I really think that android is not made for a device like an SBC with standard keyboard.

So,  end of my android experience on rock64. Smile 


I've already created several threads and made numerous posts about UI of Android for Rock64. It is absolutely unusable with touchscreens.
Still there is no official response.....
