I have a Pinephone which has some version of UT and it's an absolute horrible experience. But to give them some Cred I believe other devices are much better supported.

Fairly easy to install, but calls and texting is very broken, network availability (LTE or wifi) takes 30-45 sec after wakeup to come alive and battery life is < 10 hours with very little use.

Some apps are available, but to date Spotify is broken, but Telegram does work.

To basically sum it up, it is not even close to a daily driver yet.

oh wow thanks for the info sorry about the bad luck!

It is slowly getting better, but i'd bet at min at least 1 year before it's stable enough.

Also to note, the hardware out-side of beta has been upgraded from a 2G model to a 3G, by the time it's stable they might have rev3 or 4 by then.
