Pulled my old Nexus 5 out of my drawer and gave Ubuntu touch a shot. To my surprise, the vast majority of things seem to work, including wifi, bluetooth, etc. and performance with one or two apps open isnt even half bad for such an old phone (writing this post on it).
I have just a few snags I'm curious if others have experenced. Not looking for fixes exactly since this is just an old backup phone, just wondering if my mileage is good, bad, expected, etc.
Libertine- works fine for cli apps, basically non functional for gui ones. They fail to install, fail to launch, or are broken in some way (firefox will no load anything, as an example)
Youtube- the youtube dev app manages to play 720p video, no other app or browser appears old to manage more than like 240p. I assume this is related to hardware video support.
Maps- no map websites or apps seem to be able to find my location. Might be because I'm not using cell functions (just wifi, although location is turned on of course)
Scaling- many web apps from the store do not scale properly.
Battery- kind of sucks, but its an old phone so hard to say for sure.
Otherwise my only complaints are lack of software (hopefully anbox and improved libertine resolve this in the future). Very interesting project here, hopefully it has a future on more phones.
