Wow, I would not have thought that the paste would adhere to the screen well enough in the first place.

Just have to rough it up a bit with a little sand paper first.

Linux_Yes: Librem 5 swoops in for the win once again.


Is there any difference between an operational Librem 5 and a bricked Librem 5?

Linux_Yes: Librem 5 swoops in for the win once again.


Swoops in for the win with over-priced, under-powered performance in a phone you can't even get if you want.  If you order today you can get tech from three years ago in just six months for the low price of 750 bucks.  Where do I sign up?

It takes time to build a real smartphone from scratch vs a spy device that steals ur data and sells it to advertisers.

Several youtube videos showing the Librem coming along nicely.

But u already knew that.

So you could order a Librem 5 and get it this month?  No.  This quarter?  No.  Next quarter?  No.  End of the year?  Maybe.

You've been harping about this phone for probably over a year and you still can't get it.  The reviews are in (for those that have reviewed it) and most of the reviews are not good.

You may (may) have a point about Linux in general, but not about this phone.  It doesn't work great as a phone, it has an app store that makes the Windows phone look like a winner, a sub par camera, and screen resolution that is bested by a 50 dollar burner phone.  All for the price of a near flagship phone.  No thanks said nearly everyone.
