Would be important if it could at least "make it through a day" with not excessive usage (like OG PP).
I guess there must be also some people here who have used both PinePhone variants in the last months and know if there is still any noticable difference in battery life (or not)... Sad

- so I can't really daily drive it perfectly.
If someone knows image where audio works nearly flawless without need to use wired headphones or similar I would like hear Smile
(I have tried pmos, mobian, manjaro and arch)
.....
Hope this helps. I will write more and even more when I found out how I can achieve working audio with PPP Big Grin

my main problem with PP is that modem drains battery very quickly when in a call. So it would be interesting how PPP permors in a call. How many hours can it be used for talking over GSM?

you probably meant lte! rather than gsm.

i use pinephone regular for internet radio, and battery is pretty much drained in two hours. although battery starts to be bad, but i don't think it's much longer with new battery. i have some spares.

Not necessarily. Voice often still goes through GSM or UMTS rather than VoLTE, which unfortunately was designed as an afterthought rather than as an integral part of the protocol as in earlier technology generations.

E.g., on my PinePhone:
Code:
[kevin@plasma-mobile ~]$ sudo mmcli -m any --command='AT+QCFG="ims"'
response: '+QCFG: "ims",1,0'
This means ims_conf=1 (enabled), but volte_cap=0 (disabled), so VoLTE is not enabled out of the box on this operator.

NOTE: AT+QCFG is not documented in the data sheets on the PinePhone wiki page in the PINE64 wiki, but the document can be downloaded from this Quectel forum thread.

what i know gsm circuit-switch-data is more efficient in power consumption than later technologies. however, eg25g modem chip might be a different case.

volte is a giant mess. even as a afterthought, volte would work if device manufacturer and carriers follow same generic standard, instead they create their own clunky systems. which are incompatible to others. i hope vonr (voice over nr) would not have these issues.

Here, this will help a little bit.

I'm an electronics engineer who knows how to bench test batteries.  The one supplied with my phone tests at slightly over 2000mAh, so I ordered a genuine Samsung EB-BJ700BBU from Amazon, the one that the PinePhone wiki describes as "a tight fit".  It is a little bit tighter than the originally supplied battery, but nothing to get excited about, and it bench tests at slightly over 3000mAh ... I'm quite happy with it.
