Confidence about what ?
People have to understand that it is more of a concept phone built from ground, which main purpose is to bring an unwrapped Linux on a phone.
It is unfair to compare it to iPhone or Samsung, and tech articles has not the honnesty of showing the way it should be
It is not meant for everybody, and people should be fully aware of what they are buying, as, on the other side, the company is cristal clear about what they are selling.
I understand all of that.
I'm not confident I will ever receive this phone and it's current performance is nowhere near what I was told it would be capable of when I should have received it in April 2019.
I've made no comparisons to other makes and models.
A working camera and volume controls, and a battery life longer than an hour isn't a lot to ask for.
But, iirc, is more than was promised in April 2019. I seem to recall it was was promised to run linux, make calls, and send/receive texts.
There are two reasons I bought my place in line, and both have already been fulfilled:
1) Upstreaming software for screen and phone modem management.
2) Create a market for linux phones. There are multiple vendors now,a couple with decent pedigree producing multi-generation hardware.
