And you call that piece of shit a laptop?
yes. it's a thinkpad x1 hybrid that runs win7 and can switch to android at any time. i get up to 17 hours of use when it is using android. between 10 and 11 if i'm doing nothing but watching movies the whole time.

the only apps I downloaded from the FakeStore are Signal, an app for my city's bus schedule, fitnotes to track workouts and shuttle for music.
from f-droid I'm using chanu, Firefox and a file manager.
using the aosp email app.
