Do you think Ubuntu Touch is a good alternative to Android or iOS?

Go to www.alternativeto.net and suggest UT as an alternative to both! What you can do:

1. Go to our page and click the 'like' button
2. Give it a review!
3. Go to the Android page and suggest UBports Ubuntu Touch (NOT the Canonical one!) as an alternative to Android.
4. Go to the iOS page and suggest UBports as alternativeto iOS

The #Fairphone is a nice little device. I like its modularity and that it is built to last.

A lot of things can run on it: #LineageOS, #Sailfish, #UBPorts, #PostmarketOS, ... as well as Fairphone's own libre OS.

I will definitely try out a few of them, it'll be fun.

Decided to try out Ubuntu Touch on my old Nexus 4. Took a while to get it to install (for various reasons, some of which being my fault, won't go into that right now), but once I finally did... Even after a couple minutes of testing it out, I'm already impressed. Major props to @Ubports

The first day of using my Nexus 5 running Ubuntu Touch went well (as I expected it to). I needed to slip out of a few habits, and I found a couple of small things with a couple of apps.

Overall, though, it didn't take too much effort to adapt to Ubuntu Touch. Then again, it's not my first time around the block with it

Anyone have a phone they want to sell me that supports full rooting and preferably #UBPorts (@Ubports)? Am ok with broken screens/dead batteries/scratches/almost-broken-ness

Learned about someting called Fairphone the other day. A phone company trying to source as much of the componants from ethical sources as possible. Also: rad as hell transparent plastic cases

@hellojed I want to play with one. theres also @Ubports making a version of Ubuntu just for phones!

@tinker @thinkMoult @RyuKurisu I've got a Nexus 5 running the Ubports build right now, but it isn't my daily.

It is a little rough as they're transitioning to 16.04. But shows a lot of promise. If you're new to it, I would wait until after that transition to make a serious evaluation.

UBports boosted

I'm a little annoyed with all the problems mastodon.rocks has, so I moved my account to @NeoTheThird. See you on the other side!

We are on the way to Ubuntu Touch 16.04. Show to the @UBports community your creative skills for a chance to have your work featured in Ubuntu Touch!
