Why would a
Text
composable misalign its text like this in some situations (seemingly, only on a Huawei P30 Pro)?
Ive already published a bug report (with the code), but fail to see how it can get fixed considering how rare it is. So I thought Id ask here!

What text are you talking about specifically. "Group 1"?

Try wrapping the text in a SelectionContainer to see if it has some leading whitespace

@tad Thanks for the tip, Im unable to recreate the issue on any of my devices but Ill potentially push an update just to test it. Im using
DateUtils.formatElapsedTime
and I cant find any issues about additional whitespace being included (in the english locale) 😞

@Colton Idle Oh, I appreciate that! Which devices do you have? The release is available in the beta channel currently. You can open the screen above by tapping start workout and then the check-mark in the top bar!

Wouldn't be the first time an OEM broke the framework.
Oh, your bug report says it didn't happen in earlier versions.
Another idea; is the user in a RTL locale?

Hes using LTR, English locale. I even rewrote the formatting logic for durations, just to be sure - no difference.
Since it worked in earlier compose releases, it has to be compose related - but I have no idea what could be causing it 🥲
@Colton Idle Just curious, did you embark on the quest to find two lucky Huawei phones? 🎅🏽

@Colton Idle Yay, awesome! I really appreciate it, this is one of those scenarios where I wish I had access to literary every Android phone out there.

Seems fine to me?

@Colton Idle Yup, thats the way it should look! Thank you for checking, makes the other issue seem even more strange to me. Which phone was this on?

@Colton Idle Gotcha, thanks again for testing it! Hopefully a future compose release sorts the underlying issue out, whatever it is.. 🙂
