*explaining the state of Linux smartphones to Kristin* so there’s one that costs like two hundred dollars and it doesn’t work that great, and there’s one that costs like a thousand dollars and that one doesn’t work at ALL
@mark i miss having a pocket camera that wasn't a phone but tbh the practicality of the combined device is way too high
@mark My 2.5G feature phone has been on its way out for a while, and with Verizon killing the 3G network soon it was time to get a new phone.
I was about 90% ready to get a PinePhone but the more I read about it the more I realized I wasn't ready to jump that final 10%. I need to be able to take pictures of my kid and let people know when my car breaks down, so for the same money I got a used OnePlus 6T.
I'm still holding on to hope that there's a Linux phone in my future.
