The best device to install Replicant

Added by ware akaunto 12 days ago

I bought an i9300 to install Replicant, but it was too slow. Surprise. Is this the best smart phone you can install Replicant on?

The reason why your i9300 is slow with Replicant 6 is that, at the time of release, there was no free software driver for it's GPU. As such graphics rendering is done in the CPU, through a technique called software rendering. Fortunately this will be fixed in the upcoming Replicant 10, thanks to the Lima driver.

In the meantime, you can try a N7100, which is slightly faster due to its faster CPU.
