Damn, it is out of stock in the website posted in this article. Anyone can tell where else I can buy this phone? I'm bored with android, ios, Windows Phone and blackberry OS... Wanna try Ubuntu..

Most people comment without understanding what they were saying. People saying i can't install Android apps on the Ubuntu phone is like saying i can't install Android on apple OS. That is not smart because is different ecosystem. Apps are developed in their own ecosystem and for the record Android started somewhere. People are getting so ignorant they think Android or Google play store should be on every ecosystem. If you interested in Android phones that is your choice. Leave the Ubuntu phone for the smart ones

This is true for Meizu mx4 at least.

This future is not Ubuntu. Shame Meizu.

Will remain on the stock, with these phones having the operating system.

This is a great first release handset. Go hard or go home.
Didn't really want to get a Windows phone as I have 2 desktops running Ubuntu and 2 latops running peppermint and the other is duel boot windows and Ubuntu..... I think this will be perfect..... The price though.

Meizu wants to test that is actually real demand of the operating system Ubuntu. In my opinion will not be successful. This phone has features top off the OS.

  • sumadartson

To use Ubuntu on mobile? hehehehehe ... a joke.

  • sandeep yadav

really good to introduce a new OS in phone world........


I appreciate the company for the way they respond, primarily wish of the people. If the company found that there is a demand in this segment of UBUNTU OS, then perhaps this is so. Personally, doubt that demand was so great that to occur under this OS (endangered) for smart phones.

Not a very North American friendly phone (especially not here in Canada). All the frequencies are wrong. Do they do this on purpose or is the licensing just too expensive? That's a shame, I would have scooped one of these up just for "geek cred".

  • AnonD-292359

I wonder if this would also run SailfishOS?

There is no playstore for Ubuntu version. I'd rather prefer the Android version.
