#Librem5 vs #Pinephone

#Convergence aka #Desktop mode works fine on both #smartphones for light tasks. But what is "light"? This is where they differ.

#Librem5 (left) smoothly plays two videos simultaneously (one of which is 60 fps), whereas #Pinephone is struggling with single 30 fps video.

Why? Librem 5 has 30% faster CPU clock speed, 140% faster RAM standard, roughly double the GPU performance. More details: forums.puri.sm/t/comparing-spe.

@ozmik While all of that is true, Librem5 is more or less finalized product that is being sold, where PinePhone is still a prototype, as far as I recall in a beta right now without any clear plans to actually launch it as a product and it is also cost 4 times less than Librem5. I respect what both companies are doing let's cherish those efforts and investments rather than diminish other guy, otherwise we will be stuck to spying devices in our pockets.


Fully agree with you: #Librem5 and #Pinephone actually help each other and we need both to fight with the walled gardens of #Android and #iOS:


However I often see people saying that they have almost the same specs: same CPU and same amount of RAM.
