The dedicated sub was quite popular, and it is probably a question that might interest a few people

Yeah, that would be great. It would also improve activity and engagement level in this community.

"an Android"?

As in a ROM or a device? 🤔

[-] Blaze@lemmy.zip 7 points 1 month ago

I was thinking about a device (phone or tablet), but it could be both

[-] gedaliyah@lemmy.world 1 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

I have the same question

[-] paf0@lemmy.world 0 points 1 month ago

I want a Boston Dynamics

[-] ladfrombrad@lemdro.id 3 points 1 month ago

I'm unsure if there's something on Lemmy for that, but it's definitely something that helps the community since most mod actions I recall are poking people in the right direction like PAAFM.

Awesome team and community over there, and there is the old wiki pages too 🤔

Could we maybe try to recreate this here a bit with such regular pinned threads?

[-] ladfrombrad@lemdro.id 2 points 1 month ago

Yeah I'm unsure of the scheduling of posts on Lemmy, and I know @coles is looking into some form of Automod here on lemdro.id.

Let me poke a few more others ;)

Yeah! I've been working far too hard and meant to get back to you, and the main admin has had a IRL issue so I can't nag them right now and they also mentioned they need to update the instance?

You had a gander through the docs/GitHub to see if an existing thing lives for scheduled posts and could be even hosted by a numbnuts here on a spare Pi etc?

[-] ladfrombrad@lemdro.id 1 points 4 weeks ago

So, I just had a gander myself and this is pretty involved


Maybe there's some existing thing I'm missing but it would be cool :/

Surely opinions on this are going to vary wildly? Lemmy is full of people installing graphene and de-googling, while I'm happy with stock Android on Pixels with a custom launcher. Samsung, Sony and Asus all have serious devotees as well.

There's also different responses depending on what you want in a phone. Some people want smaller than 6", others must have a 3.5mm jack. Some want SD storage. The camera is vital for me, but most of my colleagues don't really care about the camera.

How would you sift through all that for a "best" one size fits all phone?

[-] Blaze@lemmy.zip 5 points 1 month ago

That's the whole idea of the thread.

User 1 comes and say "I want the best camera phone, I don't care about ROM, I would actually prefer stock"

User 2 comes and say "I want the most future-proof phone, ideally with GrapheneOS, but I can do with Calyx or other custom ROMS"

The thread wouldn't be a "one size fits all", it would be a collection of requests and suggestions
