Ubuntu Touch is by far the best OS I have tried on the PinePhone. I am really impressed. Very responsive, no major UI issues of windows not fitting within the screen size, gestures work very well. Briefly tried the OpenStore to install some web apps, haven't tried any flatpak or anything yet.

I am keeping my notes on testing PinePhone here. github.com/Perelandra0x309/bra
I will post tips on getting things working as I discover them and list the good/bad things I find. I only did a brief test of each OS this weekend.

It came with a screen protector already installed from the factory. Nice touch!

Twitter wants to decentralize because they see how fast Mastodon and other decentralized networks are growing and Jack wants to monetize that.

He doesn't care about a freer, more open internet, he cares about watching Mastodon grow and that he's not making money off it.
