Pinephone frame damages
#1
maybe from slipping in and out of the keyboard, my pinephone's frame starts to lose some parts. Is this what they call inner frame in their store? is this dfficult to replace? I don't like the frame to be damaged since it does not clip very well into the keyboard even when complete. On the other hand, it snapped in so tightly, the lid of the keyboard cracked too.

i have similar problem, but not that bad. luckily i have spare part phones. inner frame is quite easy to change, problem is where you get a replacement.

i may give more info or pictures later.

order from Pine64 is the only way I know. Seems the lower lip of the keyboard cover bites quite aggressively into the phone frame.
