I do!

I have a concern regarding the upcoming Pinephone.  The videos I've seen so far all show it working, but with a CONSIDERABLE amount of lag.  My understanding is that the guts are more or less the same as the Pinebook, and my experience with that so far has been....slow.  (Which was expected, so that's not a complaint, just an observation.)

Are you expecting the pinephone to start responding much more quickly closer to release?  I assume that much of the current delay comes from non-optimized code, debugging, and the like, but I'd like someone affiliated with the project to comment on the situation.

Thanks!

I have a question regarding the Pinebook Pro!
Does the Wifi Module support setting the transmit power?
If so, do the current open source drivers support such a feature?

The Wifi module in Pinebook Pro is AMPAK AP6256, you can explore yourselves on your question.

Amongst news articles about the Orange Pi 3's use of the module I managed to find a specification sheet(for Rev. 1.3).

In the above referenced sheet I saw no mention of tx or transmit power settings, but such changes could possibly be made by selecting certain frequencies and adding delays to output. In other words, I'm still not sure it's an option. Trying to find drivers just led me to the rockchip linux kernel.
Well, at least my RTL8723be is set to low transmit power.

Trying to set it with

Hej,
I poked around on the forum for a bit and did not find this question asked:
How possible or impossible would it be to have 8 GB of RAM in the Pinebook Pro? I wonder, because I feel that to "replace" a normal notebook 4 GB might be rather small, considering browser's memory hunger.

But I suppose the memory is on the chip, so depending on how far development is, this is probably too late to consider.

PS: yes, this is partly fueled by the awesome Pinetab survey

The rp64 only supports up to 4GB, the ram chips aren't in the SoC...
