A Quick Look at the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Phone


With so many questions asking about the hardware and the visual aspects of the Ubuntu Phone I decided to make a quick video showing some of its features:

Don’t worry though, there’ll still be a full review of it in FCM#95.

Some of the more technical questions (eg: SSH, sales, etc.) I’ve emailed to Canonical to get the official word on it.


  1. I enjoyed the video Ronnie, it was nicely done. I have acouple of questions.

    How was battery life for average usage?

    Is there any possibility bearing in mind this OS and Android’s roots in Linux, of being able to via an emulator or other means, of running Android apps? I seem to remember another mobile OS (can’t remember which though) on which could run some Android apps albeit not very well.

    Thanks for your continued hard work with this and the magazine.

  2. Have got an ubuntu phone and the battery life seems quite good, lasts a bit longer than my galaxy s4 did.

    Anyone know how to get own music set as ringtone?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
