🎧 πŸ“Ά stable bluetooth headphone connection
:firefox: pretty snappy Firefox
πŸ“· cameras working (though slow and muddy)
πŸ“ž USSD codes seem to work now

Still:

πŸ”‹ Battery life could be better (well carry a powerbank then)
πŸ’₯ the UI crashes sometimes

Oh I totally missed that it is now possible to see changes between wiki page versions on :gitlab:

The :pine64: @PINE64 USB-C docking bar works well with both the πŸ“± and the πŸ’».

I can now finally use ethernet and a second screen with both devices still while charging. Neat! πŸŽ‰
