I will try to feedback my own experience with ubuntu phone (sorry for my
english, i'm not at all native english speaker).

*==== [CRITICAL BUG] ====*

   - Some wifi network doesn't work. Indeed, when I try to connect to my
   college's wifi network ( tunneled TLS) it's not work, worse it crash my
   phone. On the network available list, when I select my network once, it
   doesn't connect but when i try to connect 3/4 time the wifi shut down
   (something like the service is stoped) and for restart the wifi I have to
   restart my Aquaris E4.5.
   NB : It's work fine with ubuntu desktop


   - The 3G network and MMS doesn't work. Indeed, when I try to configure
   my APN network it seems like some fields are missing. When I fill all field
   matching with my APN config and I try to connect to internet it doesn't
   work. For more information, thisi is my APN configuration :


   - When I try to select the text inside the TextBox, (Let's say : "
   48months.liffeytelecom.com"). if I stay press the textBox for while, it
   will select me only the word "liffeytelecom" but no option "select all the
   text" will appear, if I want to select all the text he'll have to change the
   sliders manually and it's a nightmare (see next point)
   - If I am in a Textbox or textArea, and I have a mistake (let's say I
   have enter a phone number "0669....") and I want replace "06" by "+336",
   With my finger it's pretty hardl to get right after the "0".  There is
   no way to refine the cursor. For example if I stay longer press, it does
   not pop me a loupe to be more accurate, or I do not have arrow in
the keyboard
   to move the cursor character by character. So to replace my number is the
   real nightmare.
   - When I accidentally click a Textbox there to no function to remove the
   keyboard that just appear.
   - In the french keybord, an important character is the : '  (apostrophe).
   And it's not present on the main keyboard page, I have to go in the second
   - When I want to type a word with an apostrophe like "l'autre" but as I
   type "lautre" it will not guess the word ...
   -  The keyboard is very strict, it doesn't allow mistake, I mean if type
   "avzc" instead of "avec" (in french keyboard the "z" is just beside the
   "e") it will not correct the word.
   -   The french auto-corection is not good, for example it doesn't know
   this word (because it have a special character) :  "ça".

*==== [ MULTIMEDIA BUG ] ====*

   - When I watch a youtube video in full screen, after 1min (the time that
   I have set before my phone goes to sleep), the screen darkens. it's super
   - When I watch a video whose width is too small (for example, this one:
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fBaOADbUg8), the player bar is
   truncated. I do not have the icon "to full screen" is displayed because the
   bar is truncated.
   - When I look at the gif on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/gifs/) and
   of reading is 'jerky'


   - It will be very nice if the youtube webapplication could be run in
   background. ça serait vraiment bien si l'application youtube aurait le
   droit de s’exécuter en fond, like this, I could listen to music on
   youtube while I read my email ^^


   - in the center circle that displays notifications like "no message received
   today" it would be nice if there could also display the time, because the
   time to see it forces me to open the hull
   - It would me nice to swipe to the left from the center for go in
   previous page instead of display the main scope.

But ubuntu phone still a good phone, I really like it, thank you for your
amazing job.

> It would be nice to have a current language indicator on the keyboard.
