The Pinephone is a smartphone developed by Pine64, which has previously made laptops and single-board computers. It is a low-spec smartphone, fully hackable, running a range of copyleft-containing Linux mobile operating systems. Many components are screwed rather than soldered in place, such that the phone can be disassembled in five minutes. The phone has some hardware kill switches / security switches, accessible by removing the back of the phone.

Initially costing $150, the PinePhone competes with the $700 Librem 5 and the €1199 euro security-focussed Necuno. Compared to the Librem, it has somewhat lower performance, less storage, and a smaller but faster-charging battery. Unlike the Librem 5, its cellular modem is not isolated and replacable. The PinePhone uses more standard phone components (including the integrated modem/system-on-a-chip); the Librem, a convergence device, uses more components designed for desktops. The Librem comes with its own manufacturer-supported free (mainly GPL) operating system, PureOS, while the PinePhone has broader support from more community-driven free operating systems (probably partly because of the much lower price).
