hey techbro. it's not supposed to yet. this is early adopter tech. shut the fuck up https://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-the-150-pinephone-is-not-ready-to-replace-my-android-device/
it hurts me because all these articles do is harm early-stage tech development. linux-on-phone is one of the only escapes from the hell that is the android and iOS walled gardens right now and writing articles about how it's "not ready" to replace your daily is just kinda introducing unnecessary FUD to public opinion of a new and up-and-coming technology just so you can get some clicks
@bclindner techbros confirmed literally illiterate
@bclindner the worst bit is this isn't even like "well don't gatekeep who buys performance cars but never take them to their limit, they're not preventing anyone else from ordering one" because this is such comparatively low availability that there's literally someone out there who wants a pinephone but can't get one because techbro just had to have one to be a fucking idiot about on line
@feld who is saying that? honest question
I love the phone and hacking on it...but uhhh, it's going to be a bit before it's a daily driver 😔
💯 on first party push notifications. That's probably the hardest thing about running hacked android. You lose push notifications from underlying g services.
On the flip side, I fired up sailfish and it ran REALLY well...'cept this weird thing where the screen would randomly black out. Only happened when the angle the phone was at changed so I feel like the accelerometer module was doing something funny with the display. 🤷♂️
Like I said, hacking for DAYS :D
"PINE64 makes the purpose of the BraveHeart edition very clear, but I think that brings about some serious concerns."
Why does a company making it explicitly clear that their current line of phones is meant for *developers and not end-users* bring about "serious concerns" what the fuck
@bclindner "this thing is for developers but that's bad because it isn't market ready, immediately, right now"
Wtf is this?
@bclindner Daily driving UBports here, on a Nexus 5. My main workhorse is Morph, which is a very nice browser (wish it was based on Mozilla rather than Google, but oh well)
@bclindner lol all the phones in that image are iPhones
