@tuxdevices @martijnbraam Thanks for sharing. Hardware-wise, I would argue that the Pinephone is a bit more free than the devices supported by Replicant as it runs a stable and free bootloader.

However, one important aspect neglected here is security. Software-wise, only offers vastly outdated Android versions with tons of security holes in their stable branch. On the other hand, offers recent software.

See also my old mid-2019 article on that:

@kuleszdl @tuxdevices @martijnbraam really cool & comprehensive writeup; sounds like it's a good starting point even today!

Why is Replicant so out of date? How are these alternatives going to be true replacements if they are not up to date, at least from a security viewpoint.
