So far I can’t use it as a daily driver. Will update and see if it’s better. 2021-09-17 9:30 am Luke McCarthy The best phone that can run this is a slight downgrade from my mid-range, 4 year old Android phone… are there any plans of supporting anything better? 2021-09-17 11:21 am leech There are some that have gotten the newer Sony phones to run it. I still need to try it on something… still irritated about Nokia selling out… 2021-09-23 9:48 am Leszek Lesner Which phone as a mid ranger from 4 years ago can compete against the Xperia 10 II? 2021-09-17 3:54 pm daedalus Naturally, it depends on your needs, but I use it as my daily driver. I put off updating to version 4 until the 4.1 update came out because 4.0 had issues with WhatsApp, and that was a dealbreaker. But the Sony Xperia XA2 I’ve been using for a few years now has been great – cheap, good battery life, not too big (though still bigger than I’d like), and does everything I need. If you need a massive powerhouse in your pocket, then it’s not for you of course, but then I do wonder whether such power requirements wouldn’t benefit from sticking with Android anyway for its superior application support. I’ll give this update a week or so before updating to make sure any potential issues are known. 2021-09-20 10:45 am Bill Shooter of Bul I’m just confused at how the work is being funded. Looks like the only products they have for sale is the os itself. How many people are really pay 50 euros for an alternative operating system? ( says the guy that bought multiple Beos versions and variants) 2021-09-20 5:04 pm bubi Don’t they also license the OS to other parties? 2021-09-21 8:00 am flypig Yes, that’s right.

Oh whats this? so basically the Russian Government is propping them up. Wunderbar. Problems solved. No need to ever worry. Yep, my 50 euro check for that operating system is in the mail.
