  • Do you test distributions using the eMMC or a microSD card? If microSD, could you specify which card?
  • Do you flash the latest image, or upgrade in-place?
1) I test mobian off of microSD, Samsung Amazon listing to exact cards used.

2) I flash the nightly build on mobian. Do in place upgrades on ubports. Once my second pinephone comes in I will probably begin flashing eMMC nightly for both.

Notes:  Camera related issues with front camera. Confirmed software related. Front camera image is rendered upside down regardless of phone orientation.

Results: mobian/2020-08-11

Conclusion, Mobian is not ready for pinephone to become a daily driver.

Other comments: I/We will begin marking calls inbound and outbound as failed with severe audio quality issues.  This OS makes inbound and outbound calls without any issue save a really stuff call quality. Just FYI.


@plainenough

Since you are testing almost all updates, I was wondering if you see any improvement.
Can you tell us if you feel this is moving?

What is your opinion?
I haven't seen anything new since I got the CE

Mobian over time has introduced some significant improvements IMO. First, the heat levels of the phone have dropped noticeably, which indicates some refactoring of expensive code. AKA code that used a lot of CPU. That has been nice. Boot times have been remarkable compared to average numbers across all devices. Camera efforts have shown massive improvements since the start of my testing. Call quality has increased a little since the start of my testing (although the calls are still congested and woolly). Even some of the general slowness of the interface has been improved. With that in mind, sometimes the interface feels like it is running on an iPhone 3G/3Gs. Which is terrible considering the specs here.  This is the first OS I tested that call speakerphone actually worked on.

EDIT: To address the first question. Yes, with daily testing (and ignoring feelings of anticipation) I think there are improvements that have impacted my reports. Under the hood, these guys could be making significant changes that don't percolate up directly, but ultimately impact the user experience as a whole.

All in all, I feel like this is the closest candidate to making the pinephone a daily driver. (mind you I only compare to the few OSes I test, not all of which I generate a report for.)
