The #pinephone paradox 🥴:
With #postmarketos usage battery lasts (on standby) about 4-6 hours because it doesn't go to sleep but can receive calls
With #mobian battery lasts (on standby) 16 hours+ because it goes into "deep sleep" but has trouble waking for calls & SMS.
Temp solution - standby battery to recharge phone every 5 hours!
Sleep really needs looking into 😁
@Horizon_Innovations We believe this is a firmware problem of the Modem and outside our conrol. Quectel support tells us to awairt a new version of their firmsware without being any more specific.
Thanks for the update. Appreciated.
@Horizon_Innovations And forgive this fat-fingered mistypist for their typos. We cannot afford a spellchecking copy-editor, unfortunately 😉
Typos are a small price for the wonderful work you do!
@Horizon_Innovations Pine's corollary:
Calls, Standby time, Reliability
Pick two out of three.
The closed hardware doesn't really help. Having to rely on a third party to get their act together can be really frustrating.
I wonder if there's an open alternative that woould fit? Or if the firmware could be opened?
@Horizon_Innovations if there were truly open modems you can be sure firms, such as purism, would be using them.
Didn't the openmoko project have fully open hardware?
