Pinephone as a daily driver: test report
@domubpkm Nothing to be sorry, I am back-and-forth with switching channels anyways
Hello, are there any news about stability ?
I have read the camera is now GPU accelerated.
Is there a stable channel or should I stay in the dev channel ? Ok it takes some time until my Pinephone arrives and I hope that the development will progress until then.
With kind regards
@OhneZ No, there is no improvement, on any channel.
It is the first time i try to test pinephone with a SIM card (only wifi before).
BUT my SIM card is not detected at all. Yes my pinephone must be updated. I will do
BUT i want to be sure how the SIM card must be in its slot. tips for getting in and out the sim card ?
could I have one or two photos of the SIM card correctly positioned in its slot. Thank you in advance.
@domubpkm Lower slot, contacts facing down.
Edit: you need a Mini SIM Adapter,
@c0n57an71n Thanks it's ok for the SIM. Detected.
As it must be 4 months since I haven't done an update, what is the best conf at the moment?
@domubpkm Each one has it's downsides, but I think the stable might be close to the daily driver as in this case the camera works. In the case of the kernel upgrade channel it seems more snappy, but the camera doesn't work. Calling (the modem more exactly) is the biggest issue right now and not just with UT. All the other distros seems to have this issue with calling.
@c0n57an71n Ok thanks. should have been more precise: in fact what I'm most interested in is whether the cellular data works, i.e. whether the internet works with SIM (doesn't work at all for me with SIM on the Volla at the moment, ok with wifi) : so it's the conf managing best the SIM APN and cellular data that I want to test.
