Dan Luu’s empirical approach to topics is inspirational.
Another inspirational empiricist is David Mackay, ex-Physics professor
at Cambridge, who wrote https://withouthotair.com/ on quantifying
sustainable energy: what sustainable energy sources can we plausible
achieve, and how efficient can our energy sinks plausibly be.
I expect we can all improve our fields by careful measurement of
benefits and costs.
I understand this. I use Phosh on Pinephone as my daily driver, but I
cannot yet make an unqualified recommendation for it.
What I can say is that if you’re willing to accept a reduced featureset
and polish, a Linux-based OS for phones is doable today.
I also have a mainstream mobile phone which I use for workflows not yet
supported on Linux-based phone OSs, such as navigation and banking.
Is banking not possible in the browser?
My bank offers mobile deposits of paper checks with an android app, but afaik the bank website doesn’t provide mobile deposits.
Ah fair point. A rare but useful need for me.

I like it and I like PR-style development too.
There is also spot-client, another Spotify GUI written in Rust™ which uses GTK. Both, spot-client and psst are lacking so many features¹ compared to the official client that a comparison is almost unfair. It’s more appropriate to call them minimal spotify clients.
¹ scrolling through huge playlists, changing their sort order, recommendations etc. (the stuff that makes Spotify good)…
I prefer the official Spotify client on desktop for the reasons you list, and use spot-client on Pinephone.
