So, how late are they now? 2 years?
Is it possible to make phone calls now?
Does it have any sort of battery life?
Does it still get incredibly hot?
Is the built quality still as chitty wok as it was a few months ago?

And the price went up from originally 600 to now 800$... I pity the fools that are paying that much now, or have waited in vain for so long.

No from what the folks are reporting, it's working quite fine.

When I ordered my Pinephone, I got it in around a month and it cost $175 shipped. I can't imagine waiting 3 years and having anywhere from $600 - $2,000 invested and just now maybe/maybe not getting one.

Purism did/is doing a decent job on phosh. It's what I use on Mobian and PMOS. However when I read the many promises on their website I have to cringe because I know the current status of the software. All I know is I'd hate to be customer support for purism:D
