When buying a new smartphone, we are faced with a choice – Android or iOS. however, PinePhone PRO gives us another alternative – Linux. But is it worth being interested in? Yes and no.

PinePhone PRO with Linux is not a smartphone for everyone

PinePhone PRO visually does not stand out from other smartphones. offers us a 6-inch LCD screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. In addition, a 5 Mpix selfie camera and a 13-megapixel main camera and a 3000 mAh battery that supports fast charging. Not very encouraging at the moment. The smartphone will be driven by a 6-core Rockchip RK3399S supported by 4 GB with dual-channel function and 128 GB of built-in memory, expandable with a microSD card up to 2 TB.
