There is nothing perfect in this life (except croquettes and it even depends on who cooks them). Of course, mobile phones are no exception. Over the years, and whether on personal smartphones or those provided for analysis, I have seen things that I liked more and less, but there is one that It drives me crazy every time it appears. Luckily, it is not common to all Androids.
I mean that message that appears when we want to perform an important action such as formatting the mobile phone and the like. Although not so much to the message itself, but to the waiting time that appears on the screen. The worst thing is that it cannot be removed as a general rule.
Yes, I know what I’m doing (and if not, let me take a chance)
The vast majority of manufacturers with Android do not have stock Android on their terminals, but rather their own customization layer. One UI on Samsung, MIUI on Xiaomi, ColorOS on OPPO, OxygenOS on OnePlus, etc. Precisely in some of them a security function is added that is too tiring. Be careful, I understand her, but she drives me crazy.
When we proceed to execute some tricky action with no turning back, such as restoring the smartphone, it is common for a pop-up message to appear. They warn of the importance of this action so that, If we don’t know the functionality, we can still go back or confirm if we are sure. That is common in all Androids.
So far so good. However, in some layers such as those of OPPO or Xiaomi A certain time is set until we can confirm the action. This is done with the idea that the user really reads the message and acts accordingly. I also understand it in part, but on the other hand it seems the most tedious to me.
I consider, and I emphasize again that these are purely personal opinions, that if a warning message is already displayed on the screen, users must be mature enough to know that it is important and read it. If we also know very well what we do, Why don’t they allow you to directly click on “confirm”? Furthermore, in some cases there are several screens in a row that appear for 10 seconds each, half a minute just to confirm an action.
Ok, yes, it’s just a few seconds. We are not going to lose time in our lives by waiting for it and I understand that it is a full-fledged “first world problem”, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying to me. Although what pisses me off most about this is that In most cases it cannot be disabled and we have to wait every time we grant a sensible permission or other important action.
On some devices it is true that it appears once and then when you perform the action again later it is allowed to confirm directly without waiting times. However, and at least on the mobile phones that I have tried and experienced this, it always appears. Thus, if there is one wish that I ask of manufacturers (apart from making their layers as light as possible) it is that at least give the option to eliminate these times Standby.
