“Not worth it. -- Not that great
I've got a pinephone. Thrown pretty much all of them on it. Ubuntu touch has the disadvantage of not working all that well in general..."
Absolutely nothing works all that well in general---and in most cases, and in particular---on the Pinephone.
This is due in very large part to Pine's explicitly-stated business model (?) of being a great source of product for hackers only---of building product (all kinds of product) which, on the surface, look very appealing from a hardware standpoint, but which lack that one major ingredient to make it (all their product) work: the software!
Want a good example?---the Pinephone's keyboard option. It's a great-LOOKING keyboard; it's just that it's had all sorts of problems which require software (and hardware) fixes to remediate. Oh...and the keyboard has to be supported by the distro you choose to use. Does UBPort's OTA-23 support the Pinephone keyboard?
Pine Micro is so convinced that "the community" will be so enamored of their products that it will jump right in and write the necessary software (and keep writing software updates), that it (Pine) will not admit that software development---and, most importantly, on-going software development, at that---is THE major portion of any processor-based product. The result? Well-known Linux distro developers, and even Pine's own internal "work-for-free" types, becoming tired, disheartened, and ultimately abandoning their efforts.
