1. Phone working make receive calls
2. Texting
3. Camera

Be nice to have mp3 player and a video player.

Suggestions ? I need a daily driver as my current phone will no longer work at the end of February so its either get my Pine Phone working or buy a De-Googled Android.

Thanks in advance.

My phone came with Manjaro. It had several things at the time that I couldn't live with. So I started using Mobian a couple of weeks ago and it does nearly everything. The latest nightly (as of yesterday) fixed my problem with mobile data not working right. Now it can support itself and also serves as a hotspot (tested and confirmed). Getting the hotspot turned on and off is a little touchy. I sure could use a good navigator, too. But I can live with it like this for now since I can finagle almost everything I need either directly or through the hotspot for another phone.

The music player is a different critter. I didn't need one, so I haven't tried to make what comes with the phone work.

I took it out for a test run about a half hour ago to make sure it's roadworthy. Another successful test and I think I'm ready to try using it to replace my Android.
