Why Switch To Ubuntu?!
Applications: I know most of the people would prefer iOS or Android over Ubuntu just because they won’t get as many apps on Ubuntu as they would get on iOS and Android. Well its a great point to look at when you’re choosing an OS, but Ubuntu is not far behind when it comes to different applications. Almost all the android apps just need a little tweak to work on Ubuntu, as they both use Linux based kernels. I’m pretty sure that Canonical would be working very hard to get this done! You can visit the Ubuntu Store here to go through all the current Ubuntu apps.
Better Security: Android is Linux based, so it inherently gains a certain level of security. Good news for Ubuntu is that it is even closer to being a straight-up take on the Linux kernel. This means even more security than Android. In recent times virus and malware has become key issues on many mobile platforms, and people are looking for safe options. In this scenario, Ubuntu totally overtakes Android.
Regular Updates: Ubuntu promises regular and punctual updates to the users. There would be no hassle. Android lacks the update punctuality and delays updates for different regions. All the Ubuntu devices will be updated at once, same date and time for all the regions! No delays by the carriers and manufacturers either.
Great User-Interface: You can navigate the phone from the various edges of the phone. See the images below to know how it works!
