I have had a pinephone since just before Christmas and have tried a 
number of Linux OS on it.

There is a good multi OS options for testing which allows quick boot to 
a number of trial OS.

Link Below.


There are still a number of bugs in some of the releases, and not all 
phone options work. The camera for instance has limited functionality 
compared to more mature apple and android platforms.

The Manjaro Posh build is the most functional / stable with the Manjaro 
Plasma release the second best.
