2015 is finally the year we’re getting to see full, production model Ubuntu Phones that everyone can have. Out of the gate it had a bit of a weak start, which you can read about in our review of the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition, but a lot of the hardware issues we had look like to be somewhat addressed with the release of the BQ Aquaris E5 Ubuntu Edition.
The new E5 has a 720p, 5” IPS LCD screen, a Quad Core Cortex A7 processor and 1GB of RAM. While it’s not the most powerful phone in the world, it’s a lot more competent than the E4.5 and a bit more comparable to today’s higher end phones.
The phone is going on sale during this month for 199.99 (£147), so keep an eye on the BQ store for when it’s released.
