OTA-4 : NEXUS 5 status.
Firstly, thank to everybody to continue to develop and support the ubuntu phone. I'm a very daily happy user.
I was very exiting when I saw in the News forum that the OTA-4 will be deliver today. I was very enthusiastic to test it even if it's recommended to wait for OTA-5. I looked in the milestone and backlog everything seems closed especially the scaling issue for convergence. I checked the changelog (from the Q&A 34) and it seems fine.
But in reality, the bug seems to just move in OTA-5 milestone…
I buy the nexus 5 a few month ago for convergence (as recommended on the promoted device page) and it works very well. I really like convergence and use it often.
Now I would like to know what is the real status of the Nexus 5 with OTA-4 ?
In particularly for the following points as it seems the most challenging things to port:
- Camera freeze
If I understand well, the anbox port is not ready for OTA-4.
Thanks in advance if you could answer my questions.
If not, I will try OTA-4 in few days and report my finding here.
@altor OTA-4 is just over 30 mins away. Keep an eye out for it and the accompanying blog post. You may find it very usfull, and thanks for your intrest.
@Lakotaubp thanks for your answer. I think I'm a little too enthusiast
So, I try the OTA-4 and in addition to the blog post and to close my post :
Convergence : scaling doesn't work as written here https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/632 Picture in slideshow mode with Gallery works.
Camera freeze : as indicating in the blog post it didn't work
Libertine : it works
One remark about, the libertine application scales well with convergence (tested with shotwell).
@altor There is nothing wrong with a little enthusiasam
We needed to come forward with 16.04 badly, so we left aside various annoying bugs, yes we know. But making xenial happen was far more important. Excuse our dust
Ubuntu Touch OS 16.04 OTA-4 On Nexus 5
@flohack you right and it's not an issue. But, maybe you could add in the changelog that convergence doesn't work with xenial ? I think it's a very important part of the ubports.
I am a USER who has a Nexus 5 impacted :
Be carreful if you want to buy a NEXUS 5 because of this annoying bug afecting LG-D821 LG-D820 :
Overheating in some circomstances. So the phone is ALMOST unusable. Or not easily usable.
FOR ME, I can't only use my Nexus 5 as a hotspot without overheating.
It's seems to be topical yet with 16.04 Xenial.
I can't tell you what are the nexus 5 without this problem.
