@ademalsasa wow.

quite likely might be my next phone, if i can afford one!

@ademalsasa
Yep, thanks for compling all those posts. I have been always interested in pinephones. Phones with #GNU inside, who wouldn't love that?

Also noticed that pinephone hardware manufacturers are also very friendly, that's very significant.
And it's also very cheap and affordable.

@redstarfish short overview, but very valuable. Of course I want a phone with inside, Starfish.

@ademalsasa

Nice :)

I am most likely getting an PinePhone as my private phone. I do need some apps to work on it first before I can completely move over to it

@ademalsasa Thank you very much for sharing this! I would love to have a proper GNU/Linux phone.

I am yet to read more and investigate into it though. Do you know how free (as in freedom) and privacy-conscious this phone is?

#Purism #Librem5 looked more promising in this regard. At least there is enough evidence that privacy and security are among their top priorities puri.sm/products/librem-5/

@lohang recently Trisquel Forum discusses about PinePhone. I follow their discussion.

@lohang @ademalsasa check out postmarketos.org

This community is porting real linux systems and desktops to multiple devices (as well as ubports)

Reference: wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Dev
devices.ubuntu-touch.io/

@nitox thank you very much. I would love to see more GNU/Linux resources coming from you. I am aware about postmarketOS and i think it is awesome.

@lohang

@lohang @ademalsasa Well, i might be wrong, ubports is not 100% real linux, it's a Halium port, and as long as i know, postmarketos is not

@nitox @lohang @ademalsasa that is not correct. Ubuntu Touch on the Pinephone is not Halium or Android based, but rather 100 % GNU/Linux, just as PostmarketOS.

@Jonius @lohang @ademalsasa Yeah you right, depends on the model 😃 Thanks for getting me things straight 👍

@nitox @Jonius @lohang thanks to you all, I learned much new things useful here.

@Jonius
Thanks very much for this! This is exactly what I wanted to know about it. :)
@nitox @ademalsasa

@ademalsasa want to buy one, still out of stock, when will they be available again

@Yes2020 hello @PINE64 and @ubports, here is a friend asked "want to buy one, still out of stock, when will they be available again" for your Ubuntu Phone. Thanks and good luck you all.
