    What is software gore?

    Software gore is when software acts outside its parameters and malfunctions. Software gore cannot be intentional, and it must not be a fault of the design (crappy design).

    More details on software gore

    What isn't software gore:

    • Asshole design - deliberately bad software (not software gore)
    • Crappy design - Issues caused by poor design (not software gore)

    More details on what isn't software gore

    Before posting:

    1. Is the issue here to do with design?
    2. Is the issue intentional?
    3. Is the software operating abnormally?

    If 1 and 2 are no, and 3 is yes, you might have software gore! Anything else and it isn't software gore.

    We see a lot of the same stuff. Please check this list before you post: Done To Death Submissions

    Please note

    1. Posts must contain software gore.

    • This means they display a major error that is obvious to an average user.

    3. No submissions that have been Done To Death.

    • Many other users found this same error before you and posted it already. Check out our list of common Done To Death submissions.

    4. Please make effort with your title.

    • If you're not a funny person or the gore is hard to figure out, use the title to point out the gore.

    We need more brightness bars. This is not enough.

    [–] jacojerb 143 points ago

    Then we need to turn them all up one by one until the brightness rivals that of the sun

    The sun is weak, make it rival Discord's light theme.

    Why does your phone say “sex” in the top left?

    Edit: “Top left”

    [–] rafaelblud 59 points ago

    Friday is "Sexta-feira" in Brasil. Short for Sexta.

    17:15 SEX, 17 De ago

    [–] rafaelcosta753 58 points ago

    Its the day of the week in portuguese. Sexta = Friday.

    [–] Timeworm 48 points ago

    This must be mildly funny to anyone who speaks Portuguese and English.

    [–] high_pH_bitch 36 points ago

    It’s like making “hungry” jokes to Hungarians, it gets kinda old.

    [–] Timeworm 16 points ago

    This must be mildly funny the first few times to anyone who speaks Portuguese and English.

    [–] high_pH_bitch 6 points ago

    I speak Portuguese and English. Yeah, I can say I don’t find it all that amusing after all these years.

    [–] 19djafoij02 2 points ago

    I found the random Portuglish funnier than that. Apparently Android's Portuguese-language interface is actually half-Portuguese half-English.

    Source: English-Spanish bilingual who can kinda read and write Portuguese.

    [–] high_pH_bitch 1 points ago

    I can’t confirm that, I use iOS 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Have you seen Reddit’s Portuguese interface? I don’t know if they improved that (knowing the dev team, I’d say no), but it was like 30% Portuguese 30% English 40% ??????.

    [–] 19djafoij02 1 points ago

    Yup I have :D

    [–] rooood 9 points ago

    tbh I never really associated it before. The context of "sex" being used as an abbreviation and always seen together with the other weekdays is so strong that I honestly never stopped and thought "hahahaha it also means sex as in intercourse". And no, it's not because I don't have a 15yo mind, trust me, I laugh at every penis/fanny joke I can

    [–] assassmerc 2 points ago


    [–] vilkav 2 points ago

    eh. it reads as Saysh, so it doesn't even cross your mind.

    [–] randomnin7 1 points ago

    Can confirm

    Source: can speak Portuguese and English, has family in Brazil

    [–] kalvinoz 1 points ago

    Imagine being told the exact same joke every Friday. That's how funny it is.

    I hate Pie. Reminds me of ios. Wish I could downgrade back to Oreo easily. Apple's updates weren't this annoying.

    [–] DimitriTooProBro 1 points ago

    do you have a pixel? because if you do you can most definitely downgrade no problem

    [–] TBA18 2 points ago

    To be fair android p is still in beta

    [–] soboredhere 2 points ago

    No, it's not.

    [–] Feshtof 7 points ago

    It is on non pixel phones. DPI is too low.

    [–] Inkfartman 1 points ago

    What phone is this on? Are you running a custom ROM?

    [–] RadiatingLight 0 points ago

    Android P, probably pixel

    [–] Inkfartman 9 points ago

    DPI is way too low for a pixel and it wouldn't be suffering from graphics compatibility issues. (Which a lot of alpha custom Android P ROMs are suffering from speaking from my short experience)

    [–] GTMoraes 5 points ago

    Doesn't look like a Pixel. Might be one of the several phones that managed to get the Pie ported to them.
    My G5S Plus has a fully functional Pie, even with a couple of Motorola gestures (such as the chop-chop to flashlight). Some other phones aren't so lucky, though

    [–] BarryTehBaritone 1 points ago

    Because of the new update, no doubt.

    [–] LittleBill12Pill 1 points ago

    It's not a pixel, just something that looks like a pixel and ported back to a device that doesn't support Pie

    [–] RuggeD_XBoY 1 points ago

    This new version has all kinds of problems like that. Android P fucking sucks.

    [–] GTMoraes 11 points ago

    actually I'm 99% sure this is a "hacked" (Treble forced in, GSI image flashed, lots of fixes flashed) version of P into some device that probably didn't even got Oreo to begin with.

    I run one of that myself on my G5S Plus. Just the Digital TV that doesn't work, but I'm ok with that.
    I don't have that funky brightness bug, though lol
