@ziggutas The camera on the OnePlusThree is working to some extent. The 3T is only able to do screenshots of the live camera at present

Pinephone - future camera capability
I of course understand that the first iteration of the Pinephone has a camera module which is chosen for basic utility and no more. None of the operating systems projected to run on it will have any significant image post-processing capability, so everything hangs on the inbuilt features of the chosen camera hardware. My 'dream ticket' for a Pinephone 2 would be the module used in the OnePlus3 - back illuminated, RAW capable and with optical image stabilisation
RE: Ubuntu Touch Photographs
Around five or six representative images from each supported device is probably about right to begin with. It will satisfy curiosity and for those users who particularly like to use their phone as a camera, it will serve as a basic review of performance. Xperia X camera is not working yet but when it is, it will be interesting to see how it performs with Ubuntu Touch.
OnePlus3 is the most interesting of all from a photography point of view, for a variety of reasons. That deserves a blog post all its own. Very few users have one yet but photo samples are especially welcome!
RE: Using ut-phones as a media station - offering a specific media-image of UT !?
This sounds like an excellent principle. I would disagree about removing parts of the OS though, as that would add a lot of work to maintaining it and need additional server space (with heating footprint...) but there are other ways of using old phones, by selecting different elements from the UT. Those should be left in the OS too.

@UBportsNews My question is ~ What potential might the new kernel in the Pinephone provide? Improved bluetooth; disk encryption; image and video processing; new UI features?
RE: Ubuntu Touch Q&A 42 - Saturday, January 5, 2019
Asteroid OS for Asus and LG watches is built on Qt, QML and libhybris. Does that mean a close synergy with UT should be possible? [Invite Florent Revest to a future Q&A?]
RE: UBports Community Update 16 | November 11th, 2017
@Flohack If the entry point to Xenial is €500+ we will have a 50:50 split between Vivid/Xenial. There will be disagreement and duplication. If the figure is sub €200 we will have a 5:95 split and Vivid can be dropped without a guilty conscience. Discuss…
This is an uncomfortable subject but we need strategic thinking now. A cheap phone cannot be promised but e.g. server time and advice towards one selected device could improve the likelihood that one will be available.
A small community cannot do 'everything'.
