I changed from using Android, and everything is looking good so far:
- I could set up Google accounts for Mail and Contacts sync
- Q: Google Calendar is not present to sync. How to change this?
this post shows that there could be a checkbox for Calendar, but I see none.
- A: Have to install Calendar Application from Store first. Then it is possible.
- Q: GPS location is off by 30 km. How to make it more exact? GPS is not really working, i.e. 'Here' cannot find my location.
- A: this solved itself after some time.
- Bluetooth is either turned off or discoverable. How to set it hidden, while keeping it turned on?
- Q: How to set the Weather measurements to Celsius and meter on the Today scope? Why is it in Fahrenheit?
- A: This depends on the Region you set for your phone. English (US) will use imperial and Fahrenheit, and English (UK) will use metric and Celsius.
- This probably changes the Spelling auto-correction too, but I will not use it anyway.
Some of my essential apps I would want to use on Ubuntu Phone too:
- Facebook messenger
- opening m.facebook.com/messages in the browser is a huge help
- Google Tasks
- Google Keep
After the first afternoon with the dual SIM UbuntuPhone I quickly went back to using the previous Android device for The Phone For Work, as my professional life requires the usage of a variety of stable Android apps, which UbuntuPhone currently cannot provide.
However, as my private phone, Ubuntuphone will probably be a lot of fun :)
