I just spent entire day soldering stuff onto the PCB for the phone im making (yes a phone you read that right) (Yes im absolutely crazy).

Not because i would suck at soldering but because the project i based the board on (prototype only and future version will be fully from scratch) has PDFs of where the each component goes. BOM and that PDF do not match at all. Yet the names i guess in KiCad match up with BOM. So i used those as reference. Only finished half of it cause i had to redo the entire soldering cause it didnt match up at first. Also turns out im missing some freaking resistors which aint good.

    @mundo03 not at all. Im not dumb. iC is handling the battery for me so even if i have a short it will be fine.

    @Haxk20 right, because that is not what samsung did

    @mundo03 also if it makes you feel better i dont run it from battery yet. Direct 5V for testing.

    What board is it? I'm curious

    I looked into this aswell but it either ends up being a THICC brick, based on some raspberry pi or you spend literal years engineering you own board on some random Snapdragon SOM. And spend even more time trying to port the latest android to it. This also made me realize how overkill some phone chips are. Integrating support for tech that has yet to show up. Like DDR5?!?!

    @GyroGearloose i based it on Blueberry pi for now. V2 is from scratch.

    @JFK422 nobody in their right mind would make open phone on Qualcomm SoC. I work with phones based on Qualcomm SoCs daily and yeah no unless you give them.money they wont give you datasheet.

    @Haxk20 I found some leaked parts of their datasheed on a random chineese website. Also using the chip on a module reduces a lot of bs already. But I do agree that datasheets should not be locked away. Especially annoying when you need to sign up to download one. And the signup says that gmail isnt a corporate mail address. Damn you export regulations!!!!
