Can we have an Ubuntu touch/phone discussion in here?
They're fucking up the same way Mozilla did. You can not release a new platform on reheated android handsets. It's shit for development, it's shit for the consumer, and the first issue you are going to have to deal with is manufacturers deciding your platform isn't cool enough for them to bother creating update images for.
Jolla's hardware might be shit, but at least it's clear which device you buy if you want to get the intended Sailfish experience (no matter how good or bad it might be). The fact they've seen Mozilla turn around and put out a FxOS reference handset should have shown them how stupid not doing so is.
Sailfish is far better than Ubuntu Touch at this point. They really need to up their game big time if they want to challenge anyone at all.
Sailfish OS > Ubuntu Touch > Firefox OS > WebOS > Tizen > Anything else.
Been using it for a few months and compared to my old wp 8 lumia this just rocks. Sure there are a couple of bugs here and there, but overall I'd say that there is no way back to other phones unless Jolla as a company goes extinct ( I assume that they did't sell even nearly as much as they wanted).
I would like.
nop, but they are talking about the meizu MX4 pro on january/february. I think they'll permit to install or they will sell it on the MX4, and probably the MX4 compact (right now it's called meizu K52).
They want to open their market to the world. The MX4 is sold in my country.
I wonder if the manufacturers aren't tired of android and if they can decide to switch to a more interesting OS.
Yes and it doesn't look bad at all
Something I can't find on the internet is the battery life
additionally, Android and iOS wil copy/steal any good ideas to come out of Ubuntu Touch. People will have less reason to swtich when their current platform does the same things, and they dont have deal with switching platforms/ecosystems.

Get a Meizu MX3, it already runs Ubuntu touch.
