Cosmo Communicator - Hardware / Why does Planet use Mediatek CPU?
« on: January 16, 2021, 05:08:43 am »
This is a nonpoint for the Cosmo Communicator or the Astro Slide, but why was a Mediatek based processor chosen versus a Qualcomm? I ask because I would like to install lineage os, ubuntu touch or another alternative os on these devices. But, the CPU choice seems to be the impending factor. It has not been a simple task porting alternate os to planet devices, from what I can tell. Will all planet devices be based on MediaTek processors moving forward?

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Battery/Power Conservation Strategy
« on: January 16, 2021, 05:04:42 am »

Is the battery life for the Linux OS on the cosmo terrible? I tried to use my Communicator with Linux the other day but the devices only lasted  between  6 to 7 hours in standby mode/Closed.  Are there any suggestions or tips on how to make the device conserve/use less power ?  Would tlp or any other linux packages be applicable?
