PureOS on the Librem 5 USA has a long list of default capabilities and a longer list of applications that are available to install and an even longer list of applications that are coming. Full blog: 🤍puri.sm/posts/pureos-on-the-librem-5-usa-summer-2022-snapshot/
Just got my shipment tracking number. Yay! Please wait, they will ship it!
It doesn't matter how many features you list. If it cannot run WhatsApp, Uber, and other apps people depend on, it's a useless phone for most people unfortunately. Improve Android compatibility with Waydroid, Anbox, etc, and sell it for at least less than flagship Android phones, then you might have a shot
Am I missing something? Why is everything recent all focussed on the Librem5 USA? Everything I can read says it's the same phone, built somewhere different. While that does have it's own value, if it's the same phone, why is everything being talked about in regards to the Librem5 USA and not just, the Librem5? It's not just odd it's also seriously making me question ordering a Librem5 in the first place because, despite everywhere SAYING they're the same, they sure as hell aren't being treated the same, and that's making me seriously question if they are. I mean I appreciate what you're doing, but if the Librem5 USA IS different, say so, explicitly, make it clear, if it comes setup differently, say so, make it clear. Otherwise, stop treating it like an entirely different device. I like what you're doing but it's going to be a hard enough sell for people to buy a linux phone in the first place, adding this ambiguity really isn't helping.
“Your digital life is fully protected…” that is worth its weight in gold!
Great work. I have been waiting for a while for this!
I just want purism to add customizable home screen app shortcuts/pages like android/iOS/manjaro(with plasma mobile) have. Makes no sense to have to go back to the launcher every time to open apps. I worry they'll try to make a small row of 4 customizable icons on the bottom, like no, I want full pages of customizable home screens like all other modern mobile OS's have. Plasma mobile does this and multitasking well in new version, hopefully they implement it also. Otherwise is looking promising.
Tbh it's sooooo sad we don't have even better. Phones have become like politicians... Two bad choices and a third that your friends get mad at you for....
Oh shit! Now Google knows!!! 😲
I would like to see in the performance of your company
a touch phone made of high-quality materials with a screen with electronic ink. Without a camera and Internet access, without music and everything else. With buttons to turn off the microphone and speaker, communication modem and battery.
In general, a phone for calls, SMS and calendar notes.
Yall do realize this is a scam...
Remember that guy who did that American phone for security reasons or whatever the reson was? My point is, it was a scam.
2035 : Phones are using 4gHz intel processors with 32GB RAM, 1TB nvme SSD and DSLR level cameras
Purism : our Librem 5 with specs from 2015 will ship soon, here look at this cool features where it can cast stuff on a screen
I was weeks away from switching to this phone and then my mom gifted me a brand new iPhone for my birthday 🤷♂️. I’m still going to switch, but probably next year.
By the time people receive there phone the hardware specs will be truly out of date.
It is sad that people have been waiting nearly 3 years to receive their phone
Matrix built-in. Not on my model and I have latest updates. Also no Bluetooth detected in my device. Emailed support and they don't even reply. The device is really not worth buying.
Вы очень очень интересный продукт.
Hell yes, so tempted! 🙌
Need to integrate Signal.
I totally forgot about this😂
I just hope, next month you will start shipping Librem 5 like you promised in the mail ;)
