Both are somewhat unpolished early-adopter versions though. But it is good to see that they're real and coming soon! 🎉

And hopefully Fairphone3. I am having a hard time deciding which I should buy.

@kaiyou
I think fairphone3 is still android, the other 2 are running GNU/Linux and Librem 5 will have 'Respects Your Freedom' certification from FSF. PinePhone with Plasma Mobile and Librem 5 with GNOME.

Yep. But Fairphone also prmises a pretty well managed supply chain, which is just as much as valuable as a decent OS. Choice is the worst.

@kaiyou
It is about Free Software and Privacy (not just decent OS). I agree fairphone is great, but they give up on the software side. Privacy is a human right and getting rid of Google is an important step in that direction.

Agreed. By decent I do not mean technically great, which Android is on some levels. I mean useful to your security, privacy and freedom.

But hey again, I want to help Fairphone keep the great work on the supply chain and durability as well.

I might end up with Fairphone and the hope I can contribute to a community distro that respect the user. I will surely miss the hardware switches though. 🤔
