It looks like the latest #Librem5 kernel update reduced active power consumption by another 100-140mA based on my own measurements. I hear there are a lot more improvements in the pipeline once we switch from 5.3 to the 5.6 kernel.
My patches for iio-sensor-proxy to support proximity sensors just got merged upstream: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/hadess/iio-sensor-proxy/-/merge_requests/300 - thanks hadess !
Wow, that was quick: Thanks to Lucas Stach our #etnaviv runtime power managemt fix already landed in linux-next: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/log/?qt=range&q=ea4ed4a55f7363ad8db1863bd536548fb7e5c6aa..78f2bfa3181cd7ee134274aa17177dd933c69dc1

The video shows the #librem5 devkit but it is the same for the phone. Please excuse the low video quality.
