@robthebold said in Thinking to buy an F8132, can it daily drive?:
One thought is just to give up phone calls altogether and move to ip calling or whatever the term is. I really only talk to maybe 10 people, I can set up amazing peer-to-peer calls using vdo.ninja, or whatever I want to do that involves speech, including simple voice connections up to 256Kbps. Maybe something like Matrix?
I'd like to, but unfortunately for me, that just won't work. 😞 I don't have that many people I talk to regularly either.... I can only think of zero of those that I could convince to contact me on a VOIP service. Not even my wife.
Not that I am advocating for this (I'd prefer to see the VoLTE problem resolved) but in theory you wouldn't have to. I am not sure what level of development Linphone is at on UT, but then you could just get a phone number through a SIP provider and plug it into Linphone. I presume you might even be able to port the number.
Tried several .apk files but non of them worked as expected. Seems that anbox doesn't interact really with UT resources like Bluetooth (Garmin Drive), SD card storage (Keepass app), Web access (Firefox or GMaps) and others. So anbox-tool is currently not usable on Dora device.
@elmx Not having this device I can only speak in general terms and can assure you that we do care about theses issues as with all issues that arise. The normal problem in fixing these are time and people. There are only a few people or sometimes only one person working on each port often in their own time as a volunteer. This is one priority we are working on fixing.
I know it is frustrating when things don't work and you are perfectly free to use whatever OS you choose. I would hope however you will try UT again at some point in the future. @jlabon You can report issues with OTA-17 and find info on NFC in this blog https://ubports.com/blog/ubports-news-1/post/ubuntu-touch-ota-17-release-3755 .
