    • Good low cost hardware readily available. Beautiful and elegant OS that handles all the tasks you need without selling out your personal data. tomoqvMar 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because the code is out there so you know exactly what actually happens with the data on your phone, ads opposed to iOS. Ubuntu Touch is also beautifully designed.

There is an amazing and fast growing support community that is willing to help others with any issue any time of the day. Guest • Mar 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
