@emphrath The Android HAL is incompatible with GNU libc and traditional Linux multimedia software. It's less about "kernel divergence" than about how binary drivers are built on top of it to work differently than traditional Linux distributions.
@taiga-woods I'm lucky, I'm not facing such an issue with my Nexus 5 (stable), although the battery drain is quite poor on this device (I have to charge it 1 hour each day at work...). However it should be a little better with the upcoming Halium 7.1 port update (should be released in a few days normally) which would fix an abnormal CPU behavior in current 5.1 port.
@diagon It might be a discussion for Off Topic but not in a really old thread about the merits or not of Signal or Telegram in general. If you want to start a discussion on those issues then feel free to do so in OT as no doubt similar issues affect more than these platforms. Also be Careful with links to off forum sites
I tried that with --dry-run, but it just sits there and does nothing after this output.

Then it times out with:

Just running system-image-cli --list-channels also just freezes.
@ubuntoutou I have now managed to make the Microsoft Wireless Adapter work on another external display but the ubuntu desktop is compressed vertically. It does not occupy the whole screen so that the desktop is distorted. Furthermore, it is blur...
@c0n57an71n I admit, this is an advantage of the PinePhone. I also miss a dual boot option for Ubuntu Touch. Some apps only work on newer Android releases. I currently carry around three different Samsung Galaxy S5 devices with different Android versions. Each for it's on purpose. One for ANT+, one for writing capability to the SD card, and one for phone calls the latest Android apps. With Ubuntu Touch, there will be one device more. Multi boot could solve the problem.
Interresting. As the app just uses the webcontainer I doubt I can do anything regarding memory consumption. I didn't have the issue neither on OPO nor on Volla. Can you maybe link an example or a channel you follow where this happens.
Okies guys, I'll check out telegram more closely. Ubuntu Touch will be so awesome if we can at least get video chat running. I can think of about 10 people I could easily convince to carry a Nexus 5 or Oneplus One phone if it had video chat.
I have never been a telegram user, but I'll definitely check it out and become familiar with it.
