When you talk about a better experience, I assume it is thanks to the better hardware? Or do you have also other comments about the handling of it (shape & surface of case, others)?
One thing I find with my Pinephone is that the rear case is very slippery. I plan on buying a protective sleeve.
@normandc @rakor I think the hardware could be a part of it(phosh feels a little smoother to me), but it could just as well be the software work purism is putting in. I like little details like haptics with phosh. I also like the fact it doesn't drain power when off like by braveheart pinephone. The case of librem5 is more textured than pinephone and I don't worry about it slipping. I also like the notification light better than pinephone because it's more subtle.
@eyecreate Two questions: How is battery life on the Librem 5? What does the app do, and is it publicly available?
@linmob battery life is okay, though I haven't used it like a daily driver yet. I haven't measured, but I've used it constantly for a few hours before needing to recharge. The app is for tracking vehicle maintenance and some maintenance reminders. An initial version is on flathub.
@eyecreate Thanks! Does the camera work yet (as in work at all)? (I am in the Evergreen batch and wonder what to expect from the Librem 5.)
@linmob There is no camera app installed yet, and cheese gets upset, so I suspect that is still TODO.
