List of devices that have been tried on the PinePhone, and the results.


Screen protector

The official screen protector can be found in the Pine64 store under PinePhone Tempered Glass Screen Protector.

Most screen protectors for the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone XS Max fit the PinePhone (if the top notch is not obscured by a black foil or similar).


The Pine store has official cases:

Tight-fit cases of other phones can't be used with the PinePhone because most times the proportions and/or camera notch won't fit. The phone can however be used with most "phone sleeves", such as those from fitBAG. The sleeve from fitBAG for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is fits the PinePhone tightly.

Peripheral equipment


USB hubs do not require a custom driver and are therefore expected to be compatible with the PinePhone, as long as they are within the USB specification. On revisions the PinePhone mainboard revisions v1.1 and v1.2 the VCONN fix is required, on v1.2a and later the USB hub should work out of the box, see PinePhone#Hardware revisions.

Bluetooth devices

In general, Bluetooth should be working. However, due to the audio setup on the PinePhone being complicated due to the dynamic rerouting needed for phone calls, Bluetooth-based audio might still be in a finicky state no matter the exact headphones or speakers used.

Note: for people who have new info on the PinePhone's general Bluetooth audio state e.g. from own tests, feel free to update this text.
