Ubuntu Engineers to Answer Your Questions about Ubuntu Touch

Here at XDA, we endeavor to work with OEMs and software companies to facilitate win-win situations, where the community at-large is the ultimate benefactor. Sometimes it works, other times it is met with resistance. A few months ago, Ubuntu released Ubuntu Touch to the world, and the response has been electric here on XDA. It seems every week brings someone willing to port a the OS to a new device, and Ubuntu couldn’t be happier.

Just prior to Ubuntu releasing Touch, they reached out to us in an effort to find out how we could work together to help the community. Naturally, we were ecstatic. The mobile world needs another player to keep Apple and Google honest, and Ubuntu Touch has a great opportunity to be that third player. After a lot of discussion and collaboration on a few things, it was decided that one way for Ubuntu to reach out to the community would be to run a Q&A thread here on XDA.

To participate, first visit XDA thread and see the list of questions people have submitted. You can also submit one yourself via the link in the thread. Roughly every week, an engineer from Ubuntu will be posting back the questions and the associated answers to the thread so that everyone can benefit. As time goes on, the list will grow into a great Q&A—something that no other company has done on XDA. So go get involved and show your support for what Ubuntu Touch can become!

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
