Which device (phone) is best atm for some testing?
as an long term Ubuntu user on desktops, I thought it might be time to get in touch with Ubuntu touch. From what I have read, Nexus 4 is still the best device for now, because other phones are not reference devices. At first, I thought of getting started with Ubuntu touch on a Nexus 5, because its somewhat newer and faster and its not that much more expensive (f.i. ebay) than a Nexus 4. Also, I have seen that KDE's Plasma-mobile reference is (for some reason) the Nexus 5. On the other hand, again, I have read that battery life of Ubuntu touch on the Nexus 5 is rather bad (don't know, how it is on the Nexus 4...).
So, that leaves me a bit with doubts, which Nexus I should get. Any advice?
@hairy I don't really have any knowledge of these matters, but regarding the battery problems at the Nexus 5: https://plus.google.com/+Ubports/posts/iWEKKRyUnrV
Hi Semi, thanks. Sounds good.
The newest device is the meizu 5 pro. It was 'released' with ubuntu touch last week.
Sadly, you have to order it from a chinese shop.
I ordered it and am still waiting for it to arrive.
Looking on zdnet I noticed these phones available soon/recently.
Just wondering (I won't go through the list here) - what phones would be a good starting point for testing ?
Be glad to know what users' thoughts are about what we can achieve; rather than looking to antiquated devices, these days
Anyway I have been away for some time - 'member to add to the Legacy devices page whenever you see a good fit
