redacted as a paid feature.
there are quite a lot of people who would like to use "redacted" scanner for their own convenience, either because prime is to much bling-bling, and hurts their eyes (or feeling of aestethics), because theyr old phone is not performing well, or just because they're to used to that particular old interface.
as fas as i know, there are quite a number of players (my assumption is at least - every third player) that have more than one reason to "not like" the new prime interface (and scanner). most of us would be happy to pay some reasonable and regular money for NOT throwing away redacted, and NOT being forced to use new scanner.
as for me - i may be a not-hardcore player, but switching to client that really eats away on my phones battery, does not look pleasing for my sore eye and slows everything down beyound playability - is to much. even despite the game being fun, community being great and all the other things being nice (which is not quite true at some times). i used to play with old client on Samsung Galaxy Core 2 phone, and it was, well, playable. not really quick and responsive, sometimes lagging and slowish (especially on animations), but still - i really enjoyed. i know, people happily played on Samsung Galaxy S3. now i play using Samsung Galaxy S7, and redacted is flying. can't say the same about prime. that thing feels everthing, except prime (pun intended).
at times i wished there was a button "turn off all the bing-bling". in old client. dynamic animations, portal imagery, trails, shadows - everything that may eat on phones memory and internet connection.
can not stress this enough - i would like to pay for redacted to stay. and i know - i am not alone. maybe we still can make NIA change their minds?
