Why? Librem 5 has 30% faster CPU clock speed, 140% faster RAM standard, roughly double the GPU performance. More details: https://forums.puri.sm/t/comparing-specs-of-upcoming-linux-phones.

@ozmik I think you forgot to say that it also costs 5 times more :p Of course I knew that when I bought a PinePhone, it was more to see how far Linux on phone where and if it is possible to use it as a regular phone. Love the idea, but not quite there yet :)
Note that performance is probably not the main reason for the price difference:
And not five times more but just four 😉
@ozmik It is nothing more I would love than to be able to use a linux phone as a daily driver, and I would pay for it. At the moment it is lacking a bit too much and I'll stick to my Cosmo Communicator running Android (got Debian installed too, but not used it much)
Not to be rude but at 4x the price I certainly hope the Librem 5 has faster hardware. Just seems like an odd flex is all.
@ozmik While all of that is true, Librem5 is more or less finalized product that is being sold, where PinePhone is still a prototype, as far as I recall in a beta right now without any clear plans to actually launch it as a product and it is also cost 4 times less than Librem5. I respect what both companies are doing let's cherish those efforts and investments rather than diminish other guy, otherwise we will be stuck to spying devices in our pockets.
However I often see people saying that they have almost the same specs: same CPU and same amount of RAM.
