@PINE64: You guys are amazing! I think the transparency, how you develop the pinephone, and how you took all the different communities with you on your path, it is quite exemplary.
there is one thing which seems to me a little inconsistent and in convenient.
If you want to go "back" e.g. in settings, you have to reach somehow the "back"-button across the screen.
In my opinion the ui would be more convenient, if you could just swipe from left to right to go back - especially if you use your phone with just one hand.
@Stefano I hope that. It would be a reward as well for the hard work they have done and the time they have invested.
I think the Xperia X port is worked on more than a year now. Thats quite a lot of time he put in it I imagine.
I learn python at the moment. Maybe a can participate with some apps someday.
Well, that seems to me quite unfair. Volla invests money and time in that device/project. If everyone would buy a Gigaset GS290 because its cheaper than, no company/startup will try to bring another device to UT again. We should hope that they succeed instead that Volla will be able to start another project with UT someday and other companies/start-up will follow.
What's going on with the guys from Shiftphones?
The Shift 6mq will have a Snapdragon 845, which I think is the same as the Poco F1 and Oneplus 6t have.
The company has stated often that they want to offer their devices for alternative OSes as well and they will try to support communities as good as they can. At the end it comes to the lack of men power as it always does.
It think as well, that it would be a good fit, but I dont think we will see this happen soon.
@tomoqv Sounds great! I still look for a device, when the day has come and my Xx resigns. I personally would like to support the Vollaphone guys, but the camera has been tested not that good.
I wonder if it is possible to create a port with mainline support some day. As far as I know the driver for the Qualcomm 845 series will be added to the linux kernel.
@makeixo I think UT on Volla phone is using Halium 9.
Main Camera is 16 MPX which is not bad at all. (As good, or even better than an IPhone 8 for example)
MPX is not everything. I wouldnt bet on that fotos of the volla phone are better than the iPhone8. But when the camera works properly I would love to see a comparison.
I know that the volla phone needs Halium9 at the moment, I am refer to if it would be possible to build an image of UT some day which works without it and with mainline kernel like the pinephone does.
