From now a resident of any country has no limits to purchase Ubuntu smartphones. These handsets are stuffed with Ubuntu Touch mobile OS.
BQ is not ready yet to please demanding customers with a wide range of its products. For today only two Ubuntu-based smartphones are available. Let’s talk about the first one called BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition. This compact device is powered by a quad-core 1,7 GHz MediaTek processor. It has internal storage of 8 GB and RAM is 1 GB. 4,5 inch sensor screen allows to show 960*540 pixels pictures which can be taken with a cam of 5 and 8 Mpx. Accumulator battery has a capacity of 2150 mAh. The price of Aquaris E4.5 is only €180.
Let’s proceed to the second smartphone. Its name is BQ Aquaris E5 Ubuntu Edition which costs €200. It has much in common with BQ Aquaris E4.5 for example RAM capacity, processor and 5 and 13-Mpx camera. The other specs have been improved: a battery with a capacity of 2500 mAh, the integrated storage of 16 GB, 5-inch HD screen. Both Ubuntu Touch Mobiles don’t have LTE but support GSM/3G. Dual micro-SIM slot makes these phones more convenient.
Although Ubuntu OS has lots of advantages it can’t compete with such sharks as Android and iOS. However in favor of Ubuntu speaks the fact that this OS has never been hacked yet so your personal data is absolutely secure.
