How do you think, why Shuttleworth wanted to build his own device and why after few big attempts of bugfixing and porting (on Meizu) Canonical just closed the project?
You probably don't understand what is going on the hardware manufacturing. And why Android's (lets call it) Convergence works well throw the dock stations with few gadgets?
Well, your best device for convergence is still nexus 5 (2013). I own this device. I'm trying to use it as my single daily driver. But It's pain.
Cmon, we still don't have copy/past option between apps. We can't use devices even as media players, can't watch (!)480p video online, can't normally send and recive files throw (!)bluetooth protocol, can't even upload screenshots in this thread...
It's simple user's point of view. System you are building can't download and set up maps. I have to use PC to get offline navigation. Web apps will stop working if something'll happen with network.
Without internet connection I can:
Make calls (sometimes with different bugs),
SMS (don't use them),
Simple Player (works just with .mp3 with high CPU usage, ugly appearance)
Take some photos / screenshots (with bugs here also)
Use a piece of Terminal (still unstable)
Make some local notes.
*I continue to get issues even writing this message. The keyboard or the dictionary (i'm no sure) sometimes places previous word when trying to capitalize present.
Yes, sir, I know, SESURITY is on top.
But then what and who this os and devices are for?
Testers, enthusiasts. Then you should write it on your web site.
I'll definitely try The Convergency mod, but I'm afraid of:
The device will explode;
The convergence will be useless because device running UT is still useless even in phablet mode. From 2013. Useless.
It's a reference to "more or less capable device"
As I can understand, you and your team coudn't yet "bring the convergency" to any new device.
Why, what's wrong?
Is it just about the code?
