  1. I am very excited for the librem 5 but..
    They could have chosen a better presenter to promote the Librem 5 with
    13:00 like, they have the same, like, this is like…
    I absolutely do not understand why you would not decide to not use that part in the video, and the way hes talking isn't much better in the rest of the video.

  2. If this phone isn't a thing, then I'll just ditch my current Android phone. I can't do this anymore. This phone looks insanely serviceable.

    I'm looking forward to distrohopping on my phone. It's beautiful.

  3. The best part of it will also be the worst problem sadly. The full open system will be the issue some services will hold against it. Like digital signature things for example.

    Hope this thing goes so huge that those arguments could not stop support for it though.

  4. Think these won't be relevant? Look at used Sharp SL-5500 prices. Think the ecosystem won't explode? Did any of you have a Sharp SL-5500? All sorts of support from the user base. I think these will be huge.

  5. ..so toad just got you a prop of a bricked brick to shill on your channel… wasn't the "software " the whole justification for charging $700 for mediocre hardware ?

  6. It'd be great to have an IDE similar to Android Studio for developing apps. While I haven't tried making apps for android in a few years, I remember how intuitive it was and while using it I almost forgot how much I hate java.

  7. Hi, first thing is I am looking to get this phone, for the linux capabilities, hard switches and the development potential but to be fair, I can feel the difference between one object, and another object that is twice as thick, same with the screen, i don't care that it would have a 720p screen, but if someone tells me that the screen is better that another flagship phone, it raises an eyebrow… Again, I will be getting this phone, but it is unrealistic to think the screen is better that flagship android or apple products. but love the show, and the phone… just taking a realistic approach.

  8. If the blue tooth doesn't work yet I'm guessing the WiFi doesn't either. I'm sure it will eventually. What I really want to see is someone stick a sim card in it, make and receive actual calls and texts.
