aka mode works fine on both for light tasks. But what is "light"? This is where they differ.

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

@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 šŸ˜‰

@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)
