About the device: PinePhone:
Perhaps you’re in a line of work where security is a must, or a hard-core Linux enthusiast, or perhaps you’ve just got enough of Android and iOS and you’re ready for something else – the PinePhone may be the next Phone for you. Powered by the same Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SOC used in our popular PINE A64 Single Board Computer, the PinePhone runs mainline Linux as well as anything else you’ll get it to run.
The purpose of the PinePhone isn’t only to deliver a functioning Linux phone to end-users, but also to actively create a market for such a device, as well as to support existing and well established Linux-on-Phone projects. All major Linux Phone-oriented projects, as well as other FOSS OS’, are represented on the PinePhone and developers work together on our platform to bring support this this community driven device.
Problem receiving incoming calls if the phone is in sleep state. Like the build before.
Phone takes too much time … 20-30 seconds … to wake up and accept the call. Sometimes the carrier connection is up again after 1 minute
Just tried it, and It’s honestly amazing how good this release is already. Things go smooth, start relatively fast (considering most, like Firefox and Geary, are desktop applications) and it’s seems very stable overall as well. I’ve had no DE crashes/freezes whatsoever. Using wi-fi, no SIM inserted or mobile network modem enabled.
I’ll try it out some more this week and collect some comments. Thanks a lot guys for all the continued hard work!
Everything looks great. My wifi drops out, I think it’s because I have 2 access points with the same SSID and it maybe a phosh thing since it doesn’t happen on UBports. Also, any chance we get the 5.9 kernel since it works really well with HDMI and convergence package.
that’s always useful as it is much faster and pleasurable to use from emmc. But i don̈́t see any mention of fixes to the boot/shutdown problems experienced in alpha3 by me and at least another person at the forum so maybe installing the newest alpha2 build and updating form there would be better, it’s what i did to prevent the problems and it seems to be working fine. I have not however tried alpha4 to see if the problems persist.
Alpha4 was working well, though today I hit an issue while trying to update: gtk3-mobile is conflicting with gtk3 updates. Forcefully installing gtk3-mobile (ignoring dependencies) in place of gtk3 didn’t workaround this either as there is another conflict with gtk-print-backends.
