@PINE64: You guys are amazing! I think the transparency, how you develop the pinephone, and how you took all the different communities with you on your path, it is quite exemplary.

there is one thing which seems to me a little inconsistent and in convenient.
If you want to go "back" e.g. in settings, you have to reach somehow the "back"-button across the screen.
In my opinion the ui would be more convenient, if you could just swipe from left to right to go back - especially if you use your phone with just one hand.
@Stefano I hope that. It would be a reward as well for the hard work they have done and the time they have invested.
I think the Xperia X port is worked on more than a year now. Thats quite a lot of time he put in it I imagine.
I learn python at the moment. Maybe a can participate with some apps someday.
@DansLeRuSH Well, thats acutally known. Gigasets manufactures in Germany with a high degree of automation. ~ 60% automation. ~ 40 % manual labour without typical assembly lines.
I actually would back it if I get one running UT, but up to 490k you "only" get an android device.
I am wondering, what will happen to the prototype with UT if the campaign isnt successful? Will the knowledge get lost or will they share it with the community, so maybe some other devices with similar hardware can be ported?
@stan Well, if you are interested you can have a look into the documentation and give it a try, but I am afraid its not that easy. I imagine thats why most ports get abandoned at some point.
The porter of the Xpiera X spent more than a year in porting the device until he abandoned it some weeks ago.
The focus necessarily needs to be on the code that can actually be actively maintained, either by the developers or by upstream.
I do understand that. Especially because its an volunteer project, the code has to be easy to maintain. Nevertheless to be successful I think the UI has to attractive as well.
But this is an Open Source project, so feel free to (gain the necessary skills to) pitch in.
I am not an IT guy. I dont think abolishing job-sharing makes a lot of sense nowadays. Do you want to build your house, your fridge or grow your food by yourself?
I have started to learn Python. It will take some time becuase I dont have that much time left beside my normal work load. But maybe I will pitch in some apps some day.
