Librem 5 — Promise Delivery Chart


#42

Most of the wallboards I’ve seen in my experience are using iPad mini which are having comparable price tag. But considering iPads were never designed for always-on and are thus replaced each half a year it makes them even less cost-effective.

Nuh, it’s just that 10 -12 hours straight (most days) the screen is on (navigation, video, calls, etc) , runs through the charging cycles very fast.
The only phone I managed to keep with healthy battery (98%) for about a year was Moto Z Play. And it was thanks to the combo of the Moto’s Battery Mod holding it at 80% and I never let it drop below 30s while off it as well never charging it over night (to 100%).
Less efficient phones with smaller battery, would drop to 90% capacity (same use) in just 3 months , 80% in six and so on.
Then there is an issue with overheating (charging while in use, fast charging, etc) , which also leads to faster battery degradation.
Except for saving money and consumer’s convenience, this is great for the environment.

Regarding the “Phone delivery Q3” promise: I haven’t heard of anyone who received one in Q3 except the two more-or-less internal people - have you @Caliga?


#45

No, that’s why it’s marked as partial.
It’s a very low kind of partial, but it’s also not intended as a scientific analysis.
It is intended to give an overview and everybody can adjust their own rating.


#46

Why not set a battery charge limit at 80%? I think I read that it will be possible somewhere…


#47

Collaboration with Ubports Foundation is definitively far too late : https://ubports.com/fr_FR/blog/notre-blog-1/post/october-2019-status-of-ubuntu-touch-on-librem-5-smartphone-250

IMHO, it should not have a green status.


#48

If you are talking about Moto Mods, that’s exactly what I was doing when I had the battery pack available. It would either keep it at 80% if you start from higher number (let it deplete down to 80%) or if you you snap it on at lower percentage it would charge until 80 and hold it there.
As far as L5 options for charging I’m not aware of any


#49

Not quite; I’m talking about something like Battery Charge Limit but in the Librem 5 settings.


#50

That would be amazing. Combined with possible power through USB (without the battery) , it would keep the battery as new for a few years


#51

Just wanted to say I joined this forum because of the awesomeness of this post, which stands beautifully in contrast to the negative speculation I read in r/Purism
Keep up the good work, all!

With Birch out the door, I made some changes to the “shipping” promises. Hope y’all like it.
While technically inside the shipping window, I added a delayed :hourglass_flowing_sand: as not to appear too biased :stuck_out_tongue:
Also: power supply (according to buyer’s area needs) confirmed. Also added USB-C cable. This might seem a bit redundant. But as Pine only seems to ship the latter, I thought it’s worth to distinguish.

Also added earphones, which were never even talked about. Not once.
It’s a nice touch. Yes, was kinda normal in the past, before they figured out how to make a lot of extra profit with separately sold BT earphones… (In Apple terms, earphones are worth a full PinePhone, a value-add at Purism. What a weird world :wink: )


#53

So… this happened: schematics released :hushed:
I was surprised by that, but likely I mixed up what Todd said. I thought this would happen in a few years, but I guess he was talking about the gerber files.

Anyway, promise confirmed.
Next stations

@Caliga from 33 to 50 edits by now :smiley:

But 42 is always the right number


#55

wow, when locking at the picutres i can just wonder who had the idea to use the m.2 connectors the phone could have been very sleek with some smaller connectors


#56

haha nice one ! should link to the audiophile thread with specs on those IEMs
