Unboxing and Testing ( Default Manjaro with Plasma )

The PinePhone I purchased came with Manjaro and Plasma installed. It was somewhat functional but far from being something that could be used in place of an Android or iOS phone.

Many of these issues are probably due to either Manjaro or Plasma specific

We were able to launch a working termina which worked pretty nicely. We were able to edit BASH and Python scripts using VIM. We were also able to launch those from the terminal.
