Simply stated - beta. I also took a chance and bought the device early based on the fact that my PP works great. All I was looking for from PPP was the speed. I still have a Blackberry Classic which is also a secure device hence why governments around the world have used Blackberry. Now that Blackberry has rolled over into Android my BBC is now a table time piece. My Moto E4 I use for images as required but it never leaves the house. From the very start all I have wanted for the past 25 years is a device that is secure and can handle documents. In my opinion only the Librem and PinePhone can handle that task. I'm willing to hang in there and continue with these devices. I think it's worth the wait.
Curious as to what OS/desktp combo you are using for PP.  Trying to avoid separate post asking this question in PP section of forum.

I use Lubuntu laptop and Arch linux PP

which desktop with arch.  Those available look to be: phosh, plasma, sxmo on the PP.

PP Arch Phosh. I just had a major issue with PP. For the first time I had to reflash EMMc with Arch phosh 2022-05 version. I just finished an hour ago. It seems tobe the last update which was settings and Uboot. I believe the Uboot update may have been faulty? My device kept shutting off by itself. Sound familiar (PPP before towboot). Resolved and now no more updates.

Thanks for arch/phosh info for PP.  I am fairly successfully using manjaro/phosh.  I think I will stay with that until an issue arrives.  Then try arch/phosh. For reference, I did major system softeware update yesterday (approx 200 files) with no issues noted thus far on manjaro phosh

I see additional posts about failed sim/sd card holders which I think are from excessive use.

My question stands:  Has anyone yet received a replacement card holder under pinephone's replacement program?  i still have had not even received any communication or acknowledgement .
