I have been testing several Linux flavours on my Google Nexus 5 for a while, and have condensed my general thoughts on it in this article, where I also tried to compare it with the more popular "true Linux" smartphones on the market.
New megapixels is now on stable #postmarketos builds, this is the update that makes it faster
Adventures of porting postmarketOS to the Librem 5
"I’ve been longing to drop the shackles of Android ever since I made the decision to stop using my Nokia N900. Nokia had given up on Linux phones, and it was clear that there would be no further security patches for my favorite smartphone of all time. "

Got some speedups in the megapixels app for the #pinephone
This is with the rear camera running at 1080p, it can also do 5MP but that halves the framerate.
I found a GTK #weechat relay client that runs ok on #postmarketOS with #Phosh after fixing some performance issues with it. My dream of using IRC (and matrix via weechat plugin.. grumble grumble..) how I want to on a mobile device running Linux is one step closer!
Definitely needs some libhandy love though, any good starting points for porting GTK apps to libhandy?
Developing on the #pinephone in the docked mode.
JumpDrive now also works on the 3GB edition of the #pinephone
After the nth try, finally got #postmarketos booting on the Motorola Droid 4
I know computer stuff
