        Great use of your 15th post. Seems that you'll quickly developed into a 9th level Phoronix Troll Wizard. Here's your tin foil hat, you've earned it.

            Great 1st post. Congrats, well invested...

            @Topic: Glad I sold my Ubuntu phone. It's a crappy OS, just like the Desktop OS.

              As one of the 7 users, I'm hoping web browser improvements means stability and websites that consider JavaScript an essential part of the web browsing experience actually work in a nice way. These forums, for example, are just about tolerable on a desktop (I still have to wait several seconds after page load/draw to scroll down) while on Ubuntu's mobile browser it really is a struggle to use.

              That aside, if this release doesn't have some kind of regression then they're doing well.

                I think you can blame Phoronix coding for that, I had issues with Phoronix forum on Android as well, all other forums I visit on my Ubuntu phone dont have such delays. Writing this now from my E4.5 and eagerly awaiting the update.

                  Looking forward to an update on my Nexus 5. There's no way I could use it as a daily driver right now, especially with the lack of a swype-like keyboard. But I'm eagerly looking forward to the platform's evolution and might even develop some apps for it.

                    On officially launched phones its pretty good now, dont know how well community ports work, I dont lack much on it now, and with Skype going WebRTC we might get a proper Skype client for Ubuntu Touch. I might upgrade my BQ Aquaris E4.5 with Meizu MX6 though and have convergence via wifi screencasting. Is Nexus 5 port working well?
