From a search I get that mass storage was dropped when Android/Google 
increased "data scurity" on the phones. Why we are not allowed to take 
responsibility for the security of our data I don't know.

I guess that any newer Android version will be MTP only. I did try various 
Linux OSes on a PinePhone and I nust say the results are - for the time 
being - quite devastating. The device is slow, and the OS are far from ready, 
to the point that many can't even... phone. Apps don't adapt to the screen, 
most don't rotate (and usually only manualy if they do). There's no camera 
suppport or very bad if any.

I don't use my phone much, and I I still use a "real" camera for pictures, but 
even so I'm not abandonning my compact Sony for a while.
