The Nexus 5 has some problems with video recording, so i'd say the FP2 delivers a better experience. But of course, the FP2's price tag might influence your decision... Used Nexus 5 devices can be found pretty cheap. Both are an ok experience.
@fmulcar I think we are in line, more or less, and the both of us think that the Nexus 4 is a nice device. For myself i try to be patient with a hope that the Nexus 4 still have a future, but in the meanwhile i stay with the Canonical version.
However, i think that Nexus 4 should have some priority since it had under the wings of Canonical, being their primary device. 🙂
Well that is great to hear! I'm going to post a couple "deep" questions with a prefix of "Ubuntu AMA:", these will be questions about basic system organization and flow of control. Hope we can start to fill this forum with some answers which will be referred to again and again in the coming years!
The final part is a daemon running on my phone, and its counterpart on that webXMPP server. When my phone's active, it just does a popup notification with sound. When the phone's off, it also gets the LED's blinking. They turn back off when you unlock the phone. The server remembers the client, and as soon as new messages arrive, it does a notification push.
I guess I'm telling you that I don't see how an email client gives you push notifications. The best it can do is try to run in the background and poll an imap account. But Touch SIGSTOP's apps as soon as they lose focus (delta that UI tweak utility) which will fight you, and it's a waste of battery and data anyway. imap IDLE really isn't a great fit for a mobile platform.
During my trip, I had to switch back to my old phone due to a bug in the Python3 notification2 library. _closed_callback() was using an "nid" which wasn't in the notifications_registry any more. I coded some defensive logic and logging, and will see what's going on.
But with that workaround, I have been able to daily drive my Nexus 5 for the second day now. I'm able to keep real time notifications with one 150 byte packet sent and received every 2.5 minutes. It lives fine behind NAT, and also seems fine with the transition from Wifi to mobile data and back.
Ubuntu/Canonical colors are Ubuntu orange and Canonical aubergine. None of this colors has any role in the latest Canonical designs. None of this colors as well is present in the UI I think apart of Ubuntu logo button and Ubuntu Store icon. It may be present also in some apps that hasn't been updated for a long time.
I think that we retain the orange Ubuntu logo and Ubuntu wallpapers as long as the Ubuntu Touch name is kept. If the decision to change it is made or we are forced to do this, then the new branding for the OS should be created, consisting of new name, new logo and colors for it.
@UniSuperBox, last night I was going to post a study  OpenSource.com has published yesterday on 18 open source translation tools to localize your project but I saw in the telegram group that weblate is the winner already.
I don't have an special predilection for any tool.
Anyway here's the link just in case is interesting for someone.
This is not a feature, my Bq E5 also lost notifications at around the end of May. It looks like something cancels the registration of your Ubuntu One account in the Canonical notifications push server, and your device looses the notifications.
A workaround that has been reported to work is to delete completely your Ubuntu One account, create a new one, and register again Telegram with the new Ubuntu One account. Just creating a new account and registering Telegram again, without deleting the old account, has not worked for me (I cannot erase my old account since it is my Launchpad account and I have a lot of history there).
Now I have moved my daily device to a Nexus 5 and I have recovered Telegram notifications with my old account.
In any case who knows how long we are going to have Telegram notifications, as soon as Canonical decides to close the push server they will be gone for good. There is some discussion on how to implement a sustainable notification system (maintaining a push server seems out of the possibilities of UBports) here in the forums and in github.
