BQ Aquaris E4. 5: The First Ubuntu Smartphone in the Practice Test

Best price on the Internet: 114,02 Euro * Pro dual SIM memory card shaft delays of contra order this product at Amazon using only camera satisfying little apps assessment of editorial users rating now evaluate the BQ Aquaris E4. 5 is the first Smartphone with the Ubuntu operating system from canonical. Although there were already 2013 aspirations with a Smartphone on the market will bring, but the Crowdfunding financing the project failed with the open Linux system Ubuntu edge is on ice. Now had the Spanish manufacturer BQ the honor to equip the Android Smartphone Aquaris E4 5 for canonical with the operating system. What does the Ubuntu Smartphone on it, reveals the practice test by Our site.

Beginners-facilities

Technically is the BQ Aquaris E4. 5 not quite on the amount of time. Some examples: The resolution of the 4.5 inch screen (diagonal: 11.43 centimeters) is only 960 x 540 pixels. Already full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) are clearly too little, because many current mid-range phones. And even a quad HD resolution (2 K) with 2560 x 1140 pixels like in Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is already possible. Taken for himself the display who gradually the device near the face sufficiently, is hardly recognizes pixel. The display has got something dark, but enough for operation in the open still out.

Practice test of the BQ Aquaris E4 5

9 impressions to the gallery behind the display is a Mediatek (cortex A7) quad-core processor with 1.3 ghz clock speed and 1 gigabyte memory. During the browsing through the menus of the E4. 5 were repeatedly disturbing delays, so the start of some applications a little in the length retreated around the call to the Gmail app. The app is started once, and in the background, the change from another app is back to the Gmail app afloat. Very nearly measure is the internal memory of the E4. 5 out: by the nominally 8 gigabytes are in practice only 5.5 gigabytes of photos, music or apps available. With a microsd card, you can extend to up to 32 gigabytes of memory. Commendable: Who wants to use his Aquaris privately and professionally, use two SIM cards at the same time (dual SIM).

The camera: pure snapshot Knipse

During test shots, the 8-megapixel camera in the Aquaris provided no compelling photo quality: the images look much noisy and poor detail. Prints of the shots are not recommended. The dual-LED Flash proved useful however. Photos in darker environment appears thus quite well. Ultimately, it should be noted however: the camera is ideal for snapshots only what may be also due to that the system artificially to extrapolate the photos at the highest resolution to 13 megapixels (interpolated). There is a 5 mega pixel camera available for Selfies.

Features

Because Ubuntu is used as the operating system, there are some special features of course with respect to the software. Instead of multiple home screens as we know them from Android and ios, Ubuntu offers so-called scopes. This kind of collective screens group apps and services with the same theme. A music video is for example songs from Apple, Amazon & co. Ready has also selected songs from Spotify on the screen. Very pleasant, it can navigate through the menus of the BQ: by wiping appears to the right of the left edge of the display of a list of the most important applications on the device as phone function, settings, camera, contacts, and the browser. All running applications are included in the bar. Who knows the dock of Mac OS, found their way here quickly. Also there’s the button for the main summary page that shows the user at a glance current appointments, a call list, a weather app and all relevant news such as Twitter or Facebook messages.

Ubuntu store

A wiper later arrive in the app menu from there among other things the Ubuntu-app store is available. A login with user name and email address is enough to load apps there. The selection is limited but to the bare essentials and includes Web apps primarily. These are strictly speaking no apps, but only bookmarks on the mobile Web page. Examples would be the pre-installed Twitter and Facebook app on their call, a redirect to the respective home page. Who is not fully switched to Google services, has it hard with the Ubuntu-phone: except for the Gmail client no E-Mail program is available in the store, nor about detours. Contacts are also only have a Google account to transfer or import an address book file. For an open system, the Ubuntu company canonical sets much value on a tight integration with Google.

For Linux geeks?

Who believes to have a mini-Ubuntu-PC in your pocket, always with the Aquaris will be disappointed. You need to install the terminal or command window first. Also it does not know many commands: the command to install software (sudo apt-get) goes into the blank. Namely, the Smartphone does not know installation sources known by the desktop. In addition, the login by root is not possible. After all, the Task Manager is top installed. About developer mode (settings info about this device of developer mode) succeeds at least full access via a USB cable.

Everyday experience with the Ubuntu phone

Apps are scarce the standard problem with new operating systems. But the forgotten email and missing Facebook and Twitter apps are unforgivable. The use of swipe gestures was learned after a short time and much more comfortable than that of ios or Android. The case follows the industry design simple and robust. So is the device in your hand. The Ubuntu scopes are nice, for the full potential, they require access to the site but a security risk? In the settings, the privacy option to transfer crash reports to canonical can be found after all. If you have security concerns, disables this report. But be careful: during the next call to the check mark behind it is used again. Also on the Terminal, this crash reporter is apport do not stop the root access is lacking. Tarnish the impression these points and also the deep integration of Instagram or Facebook, by an open system would more transparency and privacy preserved.

BQ Aquaris E4. 5: conclusion

The Aquaris is not the amount of time what comes to screen resolution, camera, processor or memory, but know the Ubuntu system in practice entirely to please: it is very easy and tidy. Who is looking for a second smart phone for basic functions such as phone calls, text messages and surfing and has no fear of a new operating system, is with the BQ Aquaris E4. 5 Ubuntu Edition may be the right device. Linux’s friends, however, should either still waiting for an improved version, or pull the Jolla phone into account: at the Jolla Smartphone, experienced users have far more access to the system. If you want only a properly-functioning Smartphone, could either 4.5 with Android buy the BQ Aquaris or if it should be an alternative operating system of the Windows phone product range study.
