It might be time to consider running Ubuntu on your smartphone

The UBports Foundation has rolled out an update for mobile operating system Ubuntu Touch that eliminates a long-standing pain point.

Ubuntu Touch OTA-21, the latest version of the Linux-based OS, delivers a fix for problems with the set-up and synchronization of Google accounts, first encountered by users more than two years ago. Now, however, users should be able to sync their Google calendar and contacts without any issues.
