I don't think many people know about this but you can anonymize your DNS requests if you own some linux server with shell access. Steps to take:
1) Install Wireguard on your server
2) Install dnscrypt-proxy
3) Configure dnscrypt-proxy to use anonymized DNS in .toml file
4) Profit

You can also install PiHole for adblocking and configure it to use dnscrypt-proxy. You can connect then with Wireguard and have VPN+anon DNS+ adblocker.

With the new version of Plasma, PMOS and Neon just jumped ahead of Manjaro for usability on the PinePhone. But they are still behind Ubuntu Touch.

I just added instructions on how to increase the size of your PinePhone system partition to use the entire SD card. codeberg.org/Supernova/bravehe

I pushed a big update to my PinePhone Ubuntu Touch setup instructions. This is very important because your phone is running an SSH server! If you are just getting started with UT on the or even if you've been using it for a bit you may find this useful. codeberg.org/Supernova/bravehe

Using a PC to SSH into the UBPorts PinePhone makes things so much easier.

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!

OK first impressions after 30 minutes. I tried both Plasma Mobile Neon and Plasma Mobile Manjaro. Neon is definitely snappier. I couldn't find any way to add new apps to Manjaro. Both connected to WiFi fine.
