@banjofox @PINE64 Mobian with Phosh UI. It came with UBPorts which runs a bit smoother but I had some stability issues with it. I also tried PostmarketOS. It was also smoother/faster than Mobian but I couldn't get LTE data to work reliably.

PinePhone is a bit of a misnomer. It is a developer's pocket computer and expectations should match that. Expect to spend a week or 2 exploring different OSes.

I assume you flashed to the eMMC? I've tried it on a microSD card and it is unbearably slow. @mobian confirmed to me it makes a huge difference in usability.

@normandc I tried out Mobian and PostmarketOS from SD card then decided to flash Mobian to eMMC when it seemed to work alright. I can confirm running off eMMC is noticeably faster. It was still usable off SD card but it was a fast SD card. I'd imagine if it was lower grade media it could be even slower.
