Megi's #PinePhone kernel updates bring battery life, performance improvements
He's not employed to do this, but donates hundreds of his own personal hours helping to get the hardware working, increase battery life (over and over) and generally make a huge amount of the smartphone progress we've seen, happen.
I'm personally extremely grateful and encourage everyone to donate at the bottom of his page here:
Some big improvements for the #pinephone !
> But thanks to an active development community, PinePhone battery life is getting better all the time. Now developer Megi, who maintains a custom Linux kernel optimized for Pine64’s Linux phone, says the latest versions offer support for up to 6 days of standby or idle time.
@jarbus pinebook pro. 6-8 hours while browsing, terminal stuff and lighter programs. About 50-75% brightness. And this is running KDE Plasma. You’d get even better results with i3 I bet.
A lot has changed in our latest #beta with #phosh on @ManjaroLinuxARM for your #pinephone. Get it now: https://github.com/manjaro-pinephone/phosh/releases/tag/beta10
'Free Software is about empowerment.
When I was a student with little money, Linux enabled me to do interesting things with my cheap and old computer where the pre-installed software failed.
Since then, my whole education & many achievements would have been impossible had I not been able to experiment, learn, disassemble, reassemble, modify, tweak, and use #software the way I wanted.
This kind of #empowerment needs a strong lobby: the FSFE'

@PINE64 It's good to see FemtoStar has already thought through end-of-life and deorbiting, otherwise this would be grossly irresponsible.
We're taking aim for the stars with FemtoStar - a mobile satellite service running open software atop of open hardware spacecraft.
You've just named two of my pet peeves why I started working on this in the first place: (1) a missing, powerful podcast app that works everywhere (desktop, phone) and (2) syncing between all these form factors.
There's still an awful long way to go, but if I can keep finding the time and motivation to work on this, I definitely want to get there.
Aspiring System Admin, Software Developer, Network Administrator and/or Cyber Security Professional...in other words one day I'll know what I want to be when I grow up.
For now I tinker.
