Chosing device for Ubuntu touch

@needforkill Stick with Nexus 5 for the time being. Oneplus 3 should be supported soon enough as Marius said, so that would be a nice upgrade to a much stronger, faster, better device overall.
I believe the the Meizu Pro5 is the best big screen, fast processor, long battery life, and great overall phone
@speedracer08861 Apart from bluetooth not working

hello guys, I'm new here,
I have a Bq aquaris E4.5 that I bought in February 2015, I was 18 months using Ubuntu phone, it was unstable in updates,
I was already tired and I installed android and I gave it to my daughter , now she has a better phone, so I installed Ubuntu touch of Ub ports, now it is very stable, except for the GPS that does not work well,
I bought a Nexus 5 to install Ubuntu touch and see how it works in general but for my taste it is a phone with little camera, does not have dual SIM, little storage space and lack slot for micro sd,
I would like to know which devices will go ahead in 16:04 version and anbox,
I think Meizu pro 5 is great, although I read here some problems on that device, One plus 3 also seems good phone,

As you say, there will be more devices ported to 16.04 than those in that list, but none have been officially announced yet.
P.D. There's a UBports Spanish Group in Telegram if you want to join us (https://t.me/UBPorts_ES).

@stefano Why do you think bluetooth isn't working?
@hummlbach because you cannot hear the other person on the outer side after you pair a bluetooth. Pairing works for music but not for calls
@hummlbach Can't hear the other person due the noise and cracking sound, the music works fine.

@prog-amateur Hi the mx 4 in my opinion is abit slow and clunky on mobile data/wifi and is not that future proof and might/struggle with 16.04. I have no experience of nexus 4 so can't comment.
Also try the welcome and install group at https://t.me/WelcomePlus they will have the answers if none appear here.
Thank you very much for your feedback. I have also found, thanks to @libremax that the Meizu MX4 is affected because of the ARM Cortex A17. It is too bad that only some BQ are not exposed to Meltdown/Spectre. I think, it should be nice to aim another A53 smartphone to ensure privacy and safety.
@flohack Source was from https://www.techarp.com/guides/complete-meltdown-spectre-cpu-list/4/
I have concluded that only MX4 and Nexus 4 are affected.
However, I didn't know that the MX4 was affected and probably the Nexus 4. It means, almost all core smartphones compatible with UBports are affected by Meltdown/Spectre (it is a big concern). I hope another A53 smartphone will be in the core list in the future, despite the fact that I know it is far from easy to port UBports on new devices.
By the way, it seems that Snapdragon 400 is made with 4x ARM Cortex-A7. Could somebody confirm it ? Because, it would mean that Moto G 2014 can be not affected. Thank you. Source : https://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_g_2014-review-1139p5.php
