Ooh, look what just arrived.

(It’s the PinePhone UB Ports edition.)

Looking forward to sharing my experiences and thoughts once I’ve had more of a play with it.

@aral Great, looking forward to see your experiences with it as I have the "normal" edition and a big downside is the missing battery management. The battery drain is huge - unfortunately also in standby mode.

@QWxleA @aral A lot more certain than you could be of a mainstream cellphone. Nonetheless, you still have to put up with the awfulness of the way that cell telephony works.

@QWxleA Nope. And that’s my final answer regardless of which piece of hardware you’re asking me about. Also, what @Lofenyy said :)

@aral I am waiting for that, Aral. I really like seeing Ubuntu Touch alive today in 2020.

@aral Mine too just yesterday (about 3 days early). It's going to be a lot of fun to play with.

We both took almost the exact same pictures, lol. I'm eyeballing manjaro on it for the SD card.

@shebang Neat :) Do let me know how you get on with Majaro. I’m keeping it on my Pinebook Pro so I have a different distribution to test with but it doth geteth on my nerves a bit :)

@aral Can you please post a screenshot with neofetch?

@BartG95 Hey Bart, I couldn’t find neofetch in apt (probably no ARM build for it yet) but here’s a photo of screenfetch for you :)

(Not sure why it’s reporting the CPU incorrectly. Also, I haven’t looked up how to take a screenshot yet) :)

@agustinh88 Haven’t had much of a play yet as I’ve been working hard on Site.js. Will update when I do :)

@aral finally I found this post again, Aral. I'm glad I bookmarked it.

@aral How are you finding the phone so far? Usable as a regular device? Is it encrypted?

@theprivacyfoundation Sorry, still haven’t had a chance to play with it properly. Been busy with Site.js and setting up a live streaming setup.
