Yeah, XDA made a phone…

We here at XDA have collaborated with F(x)tec to bring you our first smartphone. Meet the Pro1-X, a phone that can run LineageOS or Ubuntu.


The Volla phone is cheaper and you can have Ubuntu Touch pre-installed on it, with an option for SailfishOS.

The f(x)tec Pro is such an interesting phone that I would’ve loved to own. The sliding keyboard and ability to run Ubuntu Touch, Android, or Sailfish OS makes it one of the most unique phones out there, but it’s way too expensive for me. I’m going to try squeezing out as many years as possible of my Pixel XL before maybe jumping ship to the Pinephone.


Also on a Pixel XL (with LineageOS), but my battery is failing even though the hardware is fine.

Yeah I’m on Lineage4MicroG, luckily besides sometimes dying at 26%, my battery seems to be fine. It’s not a super huge problem since I’m always near an outlet because of the virus and all.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
