wow, seems like you nearly got it!
@PINE64 I have the intention to buy one too but when I look at the system monitor of my Xx with SFOS I think I will wait if there will be a 3gb Version. I think at least 1gb of ram more would be good.
Furthermore, I think the comment about people are not willing to let go their Android/iOS phones is not really fair.
I will buy one for two main reason. First I want to support the project. Second I just want to try out some OSes. But for me its not usable as daily driver. I need e.g. Threema and WhatsApp. All this discussion about android on the pinephone shows, that I am not the only one who needs one or two android apps on his phone. Another issue for me is the camera. The camera doesn't need to have 9 trillion megapixel but 5/2 is nowadays not much. 16/5 or 24/13 with a good sensor and camera app would be fine for me.
At the end I see in the Pinephone more a device for devs and to play around but I really do hope that someday I can use a pinephone as daily driver .
@Giiba You swipe to the left/right to go forwards/backwards. In SFOS that is very consistent to the UI.
I never have used an Android device as daily driver, therefore I dont miss the "back" button of Android. I think I wasnt the one who has brought up Android. I neighter have liked the navigation of Android nor I think it is somehow a good example.
Nevertheless I think having the option to navigate through the OS with just one hand could be a nice feature. I personally would prefer a global gesture. If a dev doesnt hook up his app to this feature, nothing happens. I dont think thats a problem. In SFOS not every app is consistant to the UI, but most of them are because its a consistant UI gesture.
I think as well, that the UT camera app doesnt work bad with the Xperia X camera. Especially when light conditions are good. Nevertheless people shouldn't not expect too much of the Xx camera. By opening the bootloader the DRM keys get lost, which are somehow related to the camera as well. Pictures easily get blurry and how you have pointed out, the quality in low light is just bad.
I have no idea if that can be resolved - as far as I understand - its not an app issue but hardware/driver issue.
On the one hand (some) users have unrealistic expectations and don't think about the things which have to be implemented.
On the other hand there is a lot of fragmentation as well. ~ 98-99,99% use, develop and spent their money on 2 mobile operating systems, while some thousands do that on how many? There is UT, Plasma Mobile, ManjaroARM, Postmarket, SailfishOS, LuneOS, Purism, Phosh, Nemo, Maemo Leste. Which did I forget?
Its great if they reach the point on which you can use them as daily driver, but it slows down the progress of each OS.
