When was your Nexus 4 built and how long did it take to reach you? (I should warn you not to post your phone's full IMEI number online.) Celebrate its birthday down in the comments, or over on our Facebook page. A wonderful piece of crowdsleuthing by the fervent Android fans of the XDA forums has revealed how many Nexus 4s have been built. A wonderful piece of crowdsleuthing by the fervent Android fans of the XDA forums has revealed how many Nexus 4s have been built. The astonishingly cheap phone was one of the most popular phones of 2012 -- coming second in CNET UK readers' Phone of the Year awards -- but production shortages left many would-be buyers frustrated. So how many Nexuses are out there?.
Arguably the best thing about Ubuntu mobile is its interface, It's clean, easy to read and offers a distinctive design that sets it apart from its Android or iOS rivals, Rather than being filled with a grid of static apps, iOS style, the homescreen displays recently opened apps and last-called contacts and swiping to the left or right displays recently played music, Swiping in from the left displays a list of your favourite apps, allowing you to bts jimin 'serendipity' design iphone case quickly switch between them, and swiping in from the right when you're in an app brings up the last app you had open, This supposedly lets you quickly switch back to check information, but sadly there's no way to immediately switch forwards again -- you'll need to navigate back to your homescreen, which limits this feature's practicality..
There's an Android-style notifications bar too, which allows you to control settings like screen brightness and connectivity. It requires you to swipe down from the top and then left or right to choose the setting to manipulate. At first glance it looked like a fairly elegant system, but watching a demonstration at Ubuntu's press conference in London, it didn't seem to work as well as it perhaps should. The technician using the phone struggled to select the toolbar he wanted, and it would regularly disappear back out of sight before the task was completed. It might be early days for the software, but I couldn't help but leave with the impression that it wasn't quite as polished as it should be.
On the plus side, Ubuntu allows web apps using HTML5 to run almost like a regular app would, You can lay an icon for it down on your homescreen as normal, and it's even possible for it to use the phone's notifications -- an icon will pop up when you receive a Facebook message, for example, While this might help plug the holes in the app store for the essentials of Facebook and Twitter, hardcore app addicts -- particularly, gamers -- who want glossy new titles saved to their phone for offline use are bts jimin 'serendipity' design iphone case unlikely to be satisfied..
Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu, highlighted two main areas for Ubuntu mobile to target. The first is in lower-end smartphones, on which he promises a "great performance" from Ubuntu, and an ability to breathe new life into tired old phones. Indeed, its minimum hardware requirements are only a dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM -- roughly what you'd find in the Samsung Galaxy S2 and far below quad-core brutes like the S3 or Note 2. The Ubuntu demo I was shown was running on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- the first and only phone the software will be available on -- and results were mixed. For the most part, navigation seemed fairly swift, but there were a few times where noticeable stuttering and delay crept in. The Galaxy Nexus isn't even a true 'low-end' phone, such as the ones Ubuntu claims the software is aimed at, so I'm not entirely convinced it's going to offer the nippy performance claimed.
