Whether it's daily driver ready or not depends on what you do with your smartphone normally.
If it's just calls and email, then it's more than ready.
If you on top of that also use some more lightweight free software like XMPP, VLC, and such, it's ready.
If you need CJK input, only Phosh, Plamo, and Lomiri are ready.
If you use TUI apps (ncurses powered ones more specifically), only Phosh and to some extend SXMO are ready (reason for SXMO is because you need to flip between 6 different keyboard layouts just to press the 1 key you might not have on the current layout).
If you use some more heavy stuff like Matrix or currently the by far biggest resource hog in the world: a web browser, you might want to wait for the PinePhone Pro.
If you use crypto wallets, please stick to the PC even if you use the CLI wallets (because of storage).
If you use Zoom, Discord, LINE, WhatsApp, or some other non-free software, PinePhone will be a waste of your time.

Thank You for the info. right now I am using Mobian which Im not crazy about as of right now. Im very interested in using either Glodroid or LuneOS. Glodroid is asking for a  Authentication password. Do you happen to know what the password is? 
LuneOS Calls and text will not work. Do you know what that could be?

Thank You
