Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

PINEPHONE Anonymous 12/13/2019 (Fri) 17:18:21 No.1078
Have you already ordered your Pinephone?

>$149.99, shipped from China
>Estimate dispatch in late December 2019/early January 2020
>Chipset: Allwinner A64
>CPU: 64-bit Quad-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A-53
>GPU: MALI-400
>Removable back cover and widely available Samsung battery
>Hardware switches for LTE (include GPS), Wifi/BT, Mic, and Camera

Looking forward into it. Where does this shit made from?
I'd rather buy an older phone with better specs for half the price. Also get access to third party cases and it's easier to get repair parts. Root it and install one of those OSes on it, you've got pretty much the same thing.

>Hardware switches for LTE (include GPS), Wifi/BT, Mic, and Camera
Just keep the phone in a faraday bag.
>Have you already ordered your Pinephone?
Seems interesting. Will buy if the processor is good.
>shipped from China
All phones are shipped from China, some are just handed to you through a mildly shinier company name.

Speaking of phones, what old Android do you guys recommend getting? Ive had my phone for over 5 years. I will not get a modern android because they decided to make the os interface worse and harder to get through, and bloatware. Can you even change Android oses to older versions?
>>1406 get phone running GNUu linux instead Check postmarket os
Maybe I'll get one whenever my current phone dies. Will it work with Verizon? They can be cunts with certain unlocked phones
>>1083 odds are its from hong kong bought the PINEBOOK Pro for my mom >>1406 >LineageOS >postmarketOS >Replicant check that shit and see if any of them support your phone
>>1432 My phones been running a bit slower than usual. I do not mind this much, however the battery life is decreasing and it doesnt show a charge ( and shuts down) if its cold. Is there a way to remedy this?
>>1434 >however the battery life is decreasing buy a new battery, anon.
>>1440 Will that also help it be more resistant to cold?
>>1444 I think that batteries get fucked up because of the cold, you should research about that.
>>1389 Would you believe me if I told you I would rather have the chink government spying on me than my own (U.S.) government? Chink government won't dox me for being myself.

How secure is this chink crap? Less secure than the iPhone.
Do the librem 5 cellular data/bluetooth/wifi hard switches actually work as a way to avoid any triangulation methods?

>>1711 this. until anti-malware-drone-guy is running the place, the chinks are literally more trustworthy having my data imo. >>2546 any is a big word anon. any RF point sources are pretty much 'triangulate-able' (is that even a word?) afaik. even if the contained data can't be decrypted, the location of transmission can be. also isn't it a bit (((odd))) how many shills quickly astroturfed this thread? why do they care so much what phone i use? really makes you think.
Holy fuck the librem5 and pinephone still isn't fully released yet? Why do we have to wait this long to get a suitable linux phone. Whats the best phone to have now?
>>2564 Librem 5 will most likely never be fully released. If you want to run linux you might want to get nexus 5, if you are into Freetardism use any phone supported by Replicant, if you are into security by all cost while using a phone use google pixel 3 variant with GrapheneOS. Ideal situation would be obviously no phone at all since phones are tracking and surveillance devices by design.

>>1078 I'm pretty excited to order one, but I'll probably order in the 2nd or 3rd run so Pine has a chance to work out the bugs. I'm really happy with my Pinebook Pro, works like a dream. >>2642 Shoo, shoo
>>1711 >Would you believe me if I told you I would rather have the chink government spying on me than my own (U.S.) government? Yes, which is why I personally use Yandex unironically. I trust the Russian more than I do Google and the rest of Silicon Valley. Still, the Chinese are not as less trustworthy as you might think. Looking at the various videos articles from /cvg/, you watch as many Chinese both official communists and unofficial shitheads deliberately botch up products before they are shipped. The Chinese are also known to root many domestically made devices with backdoor software and hardware. Sure, they might not be an existential threat like the U.S. Government, but the companies that make tracking devices are selling and using that data without your permission, often maliciously. To completely ensure a secure phone with secure components in America, while expensive, obscure, hard, and tedious, is at least still possible. We ought to enjoy and use that freedom while it lasts. >>2546 >>2550 >Do the librem 5 cellular data/bluetooth/wifi hard switches actually work as a way to avoid any triangulation methods? The purpose of a phone like Pine or LibreM is lessen the footprint of a communication device you cannot not use so that whatever data a mobile company, NSA, and the like are getting on you, it won't be much and won't cause severe future legal or social problems, if any. Like the other anon said, the cell phone by it's very nature tracks your location. It cannot work without doing so. If you truly wanted to be safe from any and all phone tracking the only way to win is to not play that game. Welcome to the brave new world!
