An awesome OS created by an even greater community. I use Ubuntu Touch for my Fairphone after using the OS on the Oneplus One before.

I have been using Ubuntu Touch by UBports on my Nexus 5 as a daily driver for many months now and I love it. I am soooo happy this dream didn't die. Plus I've heard Unity8 is back in development and active so this could get really awesome.

My Qosmio needs Ubuntu, my Nexus needs UT.

Free of Google and Apple spying, what's not to like. But Ubuntu Touch is much more than just an alternative to those OS's; it's a community-driven Open Source project that has privacy focus at its core and that, is truly a freeing experience, in every sense of the word! Plus, the potential that UT OS has over any other, is a good enough reason to at least try it! I got myself a Nexus 5 (Hammerhead)-(£40 in a local shop) and quickly and easily installed UT on it using the Ubports installer. Bought a second one for my wife soon after (2 weeks ago) and so far, she's happy too! It's early days yet for her and not being a techie person at all, I thought she wouldn't like it because the interface is a bit different from the Android she was used to, but so far so good.

Been using UT on a Nexus 5 I bought for the purpose for about a year now. I love it and would really like to be able to give more back to the project. It is still a work in progress and has a few rough edges but for anyone who wants as close as they can get to a full Linux system on a phone in the palm of their hand it scores full geek points. It works superbly well, is slick and fast and looks really nice. Love it! Well done team..long may it continue!!
