> One thing this phone has going for it is that it is, at its core, an Android phone. There is a chance the device itself may not be unusable after just a few years even if the company disappears. That is not the case for a comparable product like the Purism Librem 5.

PostmarketOS supports the Librem 5: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Devices and other Linux Distros have support for the Librem 5. Given how often random Android devices show up and never get supported after they are first released, I would argue the exact opposite. This phone will likely be unsupported after a few years even if the company stays around, whereas the Librem 5 will be supported even if the company goes under.

Thanks! I will correct this.
