A Smartphone with Thermocamera


I am a proud user of eOS for few years now and i can’t say a bad thing about it.
However my phone is unfortunately getting old now (5+ years) and i might need to change it soon.
I was thinking if i am going to get a new one, might as well get a more useful one.
I use a thermal camera at work frequently and was wondering if you guys know a good smartphone with a thermal camera that supports eOS (i know it is much to ask, but it never hurts)

I figure you’d have to go through various lists of phones and cross reference with the list of supported and discontinued devices at the LineageOS site.

Why do you need to change it? Has it stopped working? Has it slowed down so it is no longer useable?

I use a device of a similar age (Xperia XZ1 Compact - released 2017) and it works fine.It continues to receive security fixes and functional updates from AOSP and LIneageOS. No need to change for sake of change (in my opinion :wink: )


Hey, you are right I don’t “need to”, in fact i like.my pjone ao much i have cold sweats at night thinking that one day i will have to replace it :). However, it is getting a bit uncomfortable to use. It’s reception is not great anymore, battery barely lasts a day and… well thats it really. Unfortunately 80% of my job is over the phone so a charger is a constant accessoriy in my bag, still though im just scouting the market, i hope i last couple of.more years with it

Replacement batteries can be found and fitted for most devices

already looked into it, I’ll order over when i reach a certain efficiency %(I’m monitoring that too😅)
