Samsung A5 - 2015 version only?
from to on 30 Jun 2023 16:26

I’m interested in getting an inexpensive device to install PostmarketOS on just to play around with mobile Linux and maybe do some testing (I’m not expecting this to be my daily driver phone).

The Samsung A5 seems like a device that works reasonably well with PM and can be bought on Ebay fairly cheaply. However, it looks like most of the A5 I see on Ebay are 2016 and 2017 models. I notice the Wiki specifically mentions the 2015 model though.

Are these devices compatible, or do I need specifically the 2015 model?

Any other suggestions for inexpensive mobile devices that support PM that are widely available?
