After reading all these information, we might wish to know what is there in the Ubuntu so that consumer should opt for. If we talk about the open-source, Android is currently available as an open-source Operating System for Mobile devices and also it is the most popular and widely used OS. SO, why do we need another OS like Ubuntu. To understand this, let’s first understand how the Ubuntu OS works for smartphones. In very simple language, Ubuntu will have basically 3 blocks of the code. One is for the devices, 2nd block is for Ubuntu and the 3rd bloc of code is for the manufacturer or the carriers from where you purchase the smartphone. So when there will be any update to be made available, it will be available with either the direct end consumers or mobile manufacturer or any concern party immediately. This is not possible with the Android. In android, users have a delay time to avail the updates.
So, if there might be some, bug, error or any software related problems, as soon as it gets resolved, it will be made available to users and Users will be safe from some unnecessary delay. Applications is the another most important factors that is currently considered for the decision making in purchase and perhaps the same reason why windows has to struggle a lot. As the Applications are concerned, the Ubuntu apps are built using QML but anyhow Ubuntu will give support to the HTML 5 and hence it will support the web apps. But any developer will want to have a plenty number of users of Operating System, before developing app for the market. So, Ubunu might have to wait bit more to have an immense number of Apps available for Ubuntu.
Perhaps this is the reason why Meizu has decided to go for the dual OS concept for Meizu MX3 and not for the only Ubuntuphones. Because perhaps Meizu knows that consumers will surely think of this factor first at the tie of making selection for their smartphone. Anyhow time will tell what will happen. Till than, let’s wait for Meizu MX3 is launched and made available in the market.
