the phone is big? thicker than pinephone, heavier than any other phone even the cosmocom

PureOS store applied updates, etc just fine but most of the app categories simply .. don't load?? it seems like they time out loading the app store metadata and then render a blank page.

apparently my phone was sitting around for a while waiting to ship.. I bothered them a few weeks ago about my evergreen preorder and they're like "we sent you an email confirming your address months ago and you never responded" and like ... no?? my email is empty except for your "purism investment opportunity" emails?? it showed up a few weeks after that (today)

i thought this thing was supposed to have a matrix client but it seems like the only chat option is xmpp. 2009 wants their phone back lol

for an app store that can barely even load, there's not a lot of apps here.........

we've got a FOSDEM schedule viewer though!!!

gnome web just seems compleetely broken, lol. it also identifies as chrome 64??

we are so far from this being useful or legible to even the most technically advanced users

gnome maps is doing great, OSM's default search is still incredibly useless...

using desktop apps with a mobilizing shim layer library can only lead to great convergence and less resource spend on development

i sure do wish my Respects My Freedom phone let me browse to the world wide web or had any apps to install! well worth the 600$ to support the development :))

at least the input latency is less than the PinePhone pmOS edition. Too bad it somehow does less!

just looked up the address of purism spc and it's a suite in some of the most expensive commercial real estate in san francisco...

premium nearly-functional freedom software with startup aesthetics and startup empty promises. but they're open to investment!! "By popular request: For the next 60 days we will be accepting new investment into Purism."

there is a "what is my ip" tool in the Socialize category of PureOS store, but no matrix client

opening an image crashes Tootle

what a remarkably disappointing device.

The first-user experience is fine enough but does not offer to change the default passwords -- you're advised in the quick start guide to change your passcode but this does not change the default 123456 passphrase which unlocks LUKS full disk encryption.

To do so, you have to be sure to go to the Disks application, clicking in particular the Partition 2: 31GB LUKS, then the little gears below it, and then clicking Change Passphrase......

like all Linux devices, power management leaves ... much to be desired.

It's too bad they crammed a 4500mAh battery in this thing and made it so thick, there's no way i'm also carrying around a USB-C powerbank with it. At least if it was 3000mAh and weight 3/4 as much, closer to the PinePhone I could carry it tethered to a powerbank, but lmao jeez.

this is with wifi on, bt on (but disconnected), no SIM card installed.

okay okay, after 50 minutes with the screen off while I write a Post, the battery is at 82% recording an estimate of 7h of idle time.

the battery is now down to 53; after 2.5h of screen-off idle it's lost 35%
