I'm so excited to have finally installed /e/os ( @e_mydata ) on my old Nexus 5x.
I'm using Smart Launcher 5 so looks nothing like standard /e/os. Yay for android customisability

It's running an outdated android version but that's really no issue, the only thing I miss is swiping the fingerprint scanner to bring up notifications (there's a setting for it but it doesn't work).
Seems super fast so far which is great (pixel experience by comparison definitely had some stuttering).


The finger swipe for notifications randomly started working. Not sure what's going on there but I am unreasonable excited about it.
Now the only sacrifice I'm making moving to /e/ is Uber not working (it crashes on app launch). I guess it relies on google service? Weirdly Uber Eats works fine
