Pinephone Keyboard

Posted on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 by Seb

I’ve received my Pinephone Keyboard Case today and after using it a little, here is a little photo session to see what it looks like.

A more detailed review will come later on the blog after using it a little.

The camera remains available, so Megapixels still works fine.

Using Firefox, the virtual keyboard is showing up, but you can hide it with the button.

Fun fact : You may have noticed the battery is now at 100%. I haven’t recharged the Pinephone during the photo session, the OS froze and I’ve rebooted it. Then, the battery gained 1%.

I suppose is just a bug in the battery usage calculation.

Hey, it's rendering well on it !
