Thanks a lot for fixing this! Although it's just a funny small problem, fixing this tiny bugs also lead to a better system.
If i compare UT today with 1 or 2 years ago it improved really a lot! Stability, features and speed!

RE: What are must have apps? Things you can do
An unified email client with calender support.
I would somehow prefer a comunication program: SMS, Signal, Telegram, mails,calenders....all unified in one good program with the ability of making a backup.
I would like to reduce this stupid app-mess of smartphones that apple and google created.
RE: Daily usable ?
I use the stable release with a N5 as an everyday-phone for some month:
Ubports-image is much better than the previous ubuntu image.
+stability (1 crash/week)
+gps is much faster, now it is useable
+everything works (gps, bluetooth, wifi, phone, camera...)
+faster than ubuntu image, loading apps is now ok
~battery lasts one day, in hard usage phone gets warm and battery gets empty very soon
-bluetooth connects with headset, but soundquality was not useable. Filetransfer did not work (maybe user fault)
-using the speaker while phonecalls is too silent, microphone does not really work (maybe just on my phone the micro is broken)
Ubports did a very good job to make the system useable on the N5 and i hope we can improve this still!
I will keep it as long as possible.
RE: Ubuntu-Touch OTA-8 Nexus 5 Issues
@advocatux Yes, i was running anbox on a fresh OTA-7 install. Switching to OTA-8 made it slow, switching to RC-channel installed version 36 and gave the performance back.
Now i tried to switch back to stable (version 6) and it works as well. But it removed anbox.
After reinstalling anbox (following to the documentation) my N5 works with OTA-8 and anbox.
RE: OTA-6 Call for Testing
Alarm clock now seems to work (3 days in a row). Looks like existing alarms were ignored after an ota-update. This should not happen, it makes the device unreliable for daily use.
The indicator on the lock screen still does not show the alarm, maybe because it is a repeating alarm. I think that should be fixed too.
I will change the bug report in this way, thanks for testing to find the problem.
RE: Observations on battery life - please share your experiences
For me the mobile data eats the battery. I use the N5 with RC images for 2 years, there were worse versions an better versions, but generally mobile data connection is the problem. With just mobile internet i don't survive the day, even if i don't use the phone at all.
Wifi consumes far less, bluetooth i turned off.
Gps, screen on and mobile data consume so much (navigation), that a 500mA recharger is not enough to prevent emptying the battery...
