Last month the BQ Aquaris E5 Ubuntu Phone was launched in Europe. While the hardware may not be the best out there and the Ubuntu Phone software stack is still maturing, early reviews seem fairly positive.

For those interested in an early Ubuntu Phone, the Aquaris E5 is now the best Ubuntu Phone available from BQ (succeeding the Ubuntu E4.5) while from Meizu is the Ubuntu MX4.

If you're interested in learning more about the new E5, Ubuntu develooper Sujeevan Vijayakumaran has written his impressions of the device. He concluded on his blog, "The bq Aquaris E5 is solid device. On the software side there aren't any big issues. Also the hardware of the E4.5 and E5 is so similar that one is as good os the other when it comes to running the installed software. Anyway the bq Aquaris E5 is still a device for Ubuntu enthisiasts. You'll a get a pretty good device for 200€. The price is only 30€ higher compared to the E4.5, but includes a bigger and better display."
