Turn on the phone 1st time Immediately throw you to terminal Now that's genuine *Linux* experience

@Book Worm Do you know why android took off in the first place? It was adopted by Linux enthusiasts. Taking over blackberry's market share. Android version 1,2 and 3 were hardly a splash in the tech world.
CanadianSwine 2 ore fa
@Book Worm Yes I know that. The kernal literally controls the entire computer. So what's your point? Manjaro, Debian ,Fedora are all their own implementation. What makes them different from android? Ya because Microsoft's kernal is utter garbage.

@CanadianSwine Android is not Linux os. Android uses a Linux KERNEL. Microsoft will also be adopting a Linux kernel in the future.

Wait, so there's finally a phone I can actually use to plug into and hack some random servers in the datacenter of my missing father's organization to sabotage a new OS launch before I base jump off a rooftop crane with music from Daft Punk narrating my every move? Deal!

I think Pine need to emphasize that last point. This phone isn't meant to replace a daily driver, it's meant to be used as a toy alongside a daily driver.

I got the Manjaro community edition. My main thing is phone calls and Telegram chat to talk to my wife, last time I tried to go full time with it it would cut the 4G and not take calls, so I've got to check to see if that's fixed

Pine64. I remember them from the 90's. No thanks, they make stupid comprimises and cover it up with semi functional features. At least they didnt design their own cpu again.
mewserino Giorno fa
Would have liked a quick run thru of calls + text messaging on the various OSes available, but this was a nice rundown of what the phone is capable of. As an old timey linux guy considering switching from ios, this vid was very appreciated, thanks.

The fact that the killswitches are INSIDE the cover just makes them useless for on-the-fly changes. Imagine not wanting mics and cam enabled by default, but then whenever somebody calls you.. You gotta pop the back off, pop the microscopic switches, pop the back on again and THEN answer your phone -_- Then do it again after you've hung up. I just cant see how anybody is gonna use those switches for anything other than permanent settings. Any form of on-the-fly change is too obnoxious for people to do.

I was ABOUT to give this phone some SERIOUS shit for having specs lower than my liquidation-sale Android TVs from 2018...until I heard $200... If they could make these for $300-$350 for a ONE generation old midrange CPU/GPU it would be...perfect. And a real Linux kernel would open up the door for SERIOUS attempts at a "laptop" style phone dock. The current gen ones are a good effort, but you still end up with a janky Android desktop experience.

I'd like to see how it works as a portable coding tool. Atom, Eclipse, Anjuta, emacs, stuff like that. Docked of course, or perhaps BT keyboard? Most of my research and development work is reading and writing, of which this phone is more than capable. Which gets to cross compiling too, or distcc-type compiling. Lots to do! Thank you for the video.

honestly I kind of wish (though can see why they didnt) they just skipped the whole UI thing when the phone is clearly struggling to run it and instead just built a blackberry like phone with a lightweight, command line only OS. There are very few people who are both comfortable using linux (let alone a linux phone) but also dont like using the terminal. UI's can be nice when you have the power to spare, but as it stands phones might not and they probably arent needed as much as they're used.

Its a shame Sailfish OS didn't work, its my daily driver for a year now. And although it sometimes has some hick ups (like ones every 2 or 3 days) it didn't disappoint me, and works great with the android app support. If you like the idea of proper Linux on your phone, you should look in too Sailfish OS.

It is possible to install Ubuntu Touch on more interesting phones, with more memory, you can pick them up at devices.ubuntu-touch.io. But such installations will use part of Android - Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL), and there will be no hardware peripheral switches, but the full stack is still available from Purism products, although perhaps UBports will eventually be able to write drivers for other phones and abandon Android HAL in XLC.
