Is possible on Nexus 5 hardware
https://www.geek.com/chips/nexus-5-h...eader-1645580/

Nexus 4 has only 3.3V VUSB so even software was removed from kernel.

2 1/2 roughly...
I will turn all the services....and play some streaming audio at 320kbps ...
see how it drains...
then charge it back up and put some film on it and run the sucker straight and see how fast it consumes battery next... Video tends to be a hog for consumption...
I am curious now what the un - optimized extreme will be...for how fast it drains...
I see room for improvement, but good to hear that it seems to make the day.

The battery runtime wasnít good on the Nexus 5 from the beginning - itís not an issue with UT itís the same on Android, Sailfish, Lineage ...

Yes, a slightly bigger battery would have been appreciated. But I would rather have a microsd slot instead

This would have been nice with included usb microsd adapter somewhere.

but availability seems similar to mugen for n900

Definitely plasma likes to eat the battery more...though..
As I understand it you have 2 of 'em nexii, one with Plasma and one with UT, right?
So it might just be the Plasma-one was already weaker with battery from the beginning.

@endsormeans, do you know whether Plasma actually suspends the device while its inactive? I would expect UT to do that, although not sure. One way to check is to see in dmesg whether you have lots of suspend/resume messages.

Keep posting your impressions.

As for apps, I would expect it will be relatively easy to port them from SFOS to any of these OSes.

i was expecting someone to start this thread, thanks endsor. i am interested in trying plasma mobile but sadly i dont have a compatible device to do that but it is good to know that plasma is a great thing to try. i have seen plasma videos so i have an image like what plasma is like and all but i have no idea about ubuntu touch. ubuntu touch is ubports now i guess. new profile pic! it looks good endsor.

Build it on Linux.
You are mistaken. Ubuntu Touch is not any more a layer on android than Plasma is.

They both use libhybris so that they can use already existing android drivers. That's all there is to it, just like in Sailfish.

Personally I think Ubuntu Touch is crap. But it has nothing to do with (due to necessity of) using android drivers.

But thank you for posting these impressions, I look forward for more of your experiences on both systems. I personally haven't tried Plasma.

Now that i got my nexus 5 back from a friend in need for temporary replacement, i had to try PM again after long time.

You really hyped me up endsormeans, maybe that is part of me now being left quite underwelmed.

All in all, using it gave the same ux feeling that i had when attaching a tiny tft to a raspberry.
Mostly due to unoptimized screen resolutions and stuttery animations.
My endevour to explore it abruptly ended when i tried to update from cli. The Plasma gui told me it sees 161 updates but its update page just showed a refresh icon to look for updates again. No button to start updating as far as i could see.
Updating from cli looked fine. All 161 packages installed.
Then rebooting resulted in a white screen after the google bootlogo.

The best thing i found to be the install script
I will study it and propose one for AsteroidOS at some point in time.
This actually was the best ux i ever had from any linux install script!
Pleasently verbose and informative and yet so simple to use.

Thanks for putting me on the trip endsormeans.

My nexus 5 now temporary runs oreo 8.1 Lineage 15.1 to see what the droid camp is doing. Will propably check the state of sfos ports next.
