Ubuntu 16.04 in Meizu Pro5 daily use
I am currently using my Pro 5 with xenial as a daily driver. Here are my experience so far (probably forgetting some things + haven't really tested everything yet):
All basic functions for mobile and wifi, including mms (tested with Telenor Sweden)
Contacts and calendar sync
Bluetooth connection works, but there are issues with audio routing
What doesn’t work:
Phone audio over bluetooth (brief scrambling noise, then quiet)
Calendar app (crashes right after launch)
Dekko2 (but there is a really good Gmail web app alternative)
Google+ (won’t display more than briefly on any browser)
What is flakey:
Ringtone volume (sometimes extremely loud despite ringtone volume set low)
Notifications (in fact, mostly not working)
Anbox (very, very unstable. No keyboard, no connectivity)

@tomoqv Just a quick response as rushing about. Try uVolman app from the openstore it might help with ring tone. As for notifications try switching to the dev channel in update settings see if that helps you can always go back after if you want.
Derek 2 should work on 15.04 I would just check your settings in the app against working settings on another device first off. Sometimes some of the security permissions don't match. As for thevithers there is abug tracker on github. Sorry using phone at present so can't find link, and don't forget 16.04 is nearly here which should help with alot of issues.
Your response was a little too quick, this thread is about 16.04, not 15.04. I have already switched to xenial on my Pro 5 and was sharing my experience so far. uVolman is not available for xenial yet.

@tomoqv Plz update today, we seem to have fixed a few things that affect camera and GPS. Lets hear from you if it works
Me and my phone are having an extended weekend :-). I though the fixes were due tomorrow, but I'll try. Somewhat afraid to bork my phone again by updating to soon...
I can confirm now that camera and gps works - awesome!

@flohack yep, GPS working and so is the camera, great work guys. Now I only wait for Dekko and the switch to 16.04 will be permanent.
