My Ubuntu Touch daily driver is...
AntiDroid last edited by
I went from a feature phone to Ubuntu touch on a Oneplus One as my daily driver. The lack of flash and zoom for taking pictures has to be the only features that reduces the phones usability in anyway for me.
The only other thing that I would like to be able to use on Ubuntu Touch is video calling like Zoom.
As for GPS I have only really tried once outdoors and after turning it on and keeping it alive with an app it eventually figures out your location. For everyone that says it doesn't work I think they are used to devices with A-GPS which is assisted GPS that uses cell towers and Wifi networks to determine the location way before it has enough satellite pings for normal GPS locating.
I now have a OnePlus 6T for experimenting and the current build for it is old and not really ready for daily use.

Oneplus One zoom and flash is coming with the Halium 7.1 update, currently its still blocked by some tooling thats needed to upgrade the old installations from classic ports to Halium. But once we have this we can roll it out...

@domubpkm, yes it's true, hanging up calls on the HD5 is somehow a true annayance, but there are times when it seems to work.
@marlboro50 Exact !.... and there are times when it's a real mess !
Thanks to everyone who share his advices!
If you are someone who look for a daily driver, most of the guys who reply here are very very UT active guys , so you can trust them!
Many thanks for all the works done for the OS!

Using Xiaomi Mi A2 for 1 month. Problems: Camera doesn't work when I try to make a video, pretty often it stops detecting SIM so I should reboot the device, also no anbox. Everything else works fine, enjoying Ubuntu Touch.
@purplevvay Did you tried OTA-16 it might solve some of your problems. On the today's devel which is very similar to OTA-16 camera works for me, anbox always worked for me (despite been unoffical) and I guess SIM detecting depends on your carrier

@carlod Yeah! I have updated my phone today. It detects sim. But it usually stops working next day, so I'll see what will happen tomorrow. The video mode still makes the camera freeze.
I don't know what to say about anbox, maybe you should contact devs or porter if you got it working. I guess I should make my image read-write to set up anbox, but how would I install a system update then.
Volla phone here with (for now) ota-15. Awaiting 16

For further talk on this issue, please open a new thread in the dedicated subforum (for your specific device).
This is getting a bit OT here. Thanks.

Xioami Mi A2 here, I'm not sure that I'd recommend it necessarily, it has some issues with not getting calls and texts and video recording doesn't work. I'd probably recommend the Nexus 5, it's fairly inexpensive and everything works really well
Just started running on OnePlus One, so far it's been good, a few freeze ups, battery lasts most of the day even while streaming to bluetooth headset. Calls work on bluetooth (accept-disconnect) but pause/play from headset does not.
Running on stable release, I think I'll stay there for now. I have it on 2g/3g so calls and SMS work on Patriot Mobile, ATT has issues, I cannot receive SMS.
Looking to connect to monitor (convergence is it?), can anyone tell me the adapter they use?
Think I like how UT is progressing. I want a better equipped phone but OPO is the most complete according to UBPorts.

OnePlus 5, tried what I could to break it in my use case: maps, photos, videos, everything. For me, it just werks. I am impressed.

Planet Cosmo Communicator with UT is a great daily driver for me.
Cosmo and UT is a super combination.
Thank you developers and community.

BQ Aquaris E5 since 2015. Switch from E5 to Fairphone 2 in 2019. Switch from FP2 to Fairphone 3+ in 2022.
BQ Aquaris M10 FHD since 2016. An amazing device!
E5 has been the first phone of my son. And UT his first mobile OS . But he wants more apps, especially games, so I may try /e/ OS with my old FP2. If my E5 still stands brave, it may be the first phone of my daughter also!

Nexus 6P and Pixel 2 XL.
N6P does not have hotspot, and video requires a player from the store. Otherwise all works. Occasionally crashes if you open too many apps.
P2XL All works. Fastest GPS I've had yet (less than 15sec to connect) and really strong. My new favorite. Loved my Nexus 5, attached to my Nexus 6P, but I adore my Pixel 2XL.

This is clearly for you, my friend.
