Is there anyone out there using the Pinephone for daily use so far? How are you finding it?

@cwebber sleep sometimes messes with SMS, but calls now work. can use Firefox as well. battery life is decent. more and more apps also work with a phone layout, like Dino.
much better performance than my Android phones.
the "official" estimate says that the software should be daily driver ready in a few months.
but yeah, way better already than my Galaxy Nexus with Lineage.


@cwebber i should mention that my baseline for phones has been:
- two Nexus 7 tablets that both died after about a year
- several old Nokia phones, all with various defects, some getting worse with use
- Galaxy Nexus that LineageOS dropped support for out of the blue and left me wondering why i'm not getting updates.
- phones of friends that were functional, but expensive, impossible to repair when half of them broke their screens, and riddled with bloatware apps, and of course locked down so in a few years will have outdated software.

so, with the PinePhone i know that it's just going to get better. and i don't rely on my phone so much that a few bugs would stop me, so i'm basically happy doing beta testing. but it's a damn good beta test so far.
