Flashback: Firefox OS burns out, KaiOS rises from the ashes

Anonymous, 6 hours agoUse Linux OS or privacy-first Android custom rom like /e/ or CalyxOS or GrapheneOS. I’ve tried but unfortunately all these packages are made by small teams, so small that sometimes they don’t even have a package for the phones I had.
For example, when I searched, a bundle for Redmi 2 Prime and Redmi Note 4 was not available.

The web-based operating system is a good idea, it’s a shame it hasn’t become mainstream. As for Android and iOS, the number of apps needed on the phone is horrible, every little function needs app download and update. Apps are like inflation, they will go higher and higher and will never go down.

Anonymous, 4 hours agoI can definitely attest to that statement. I bought a Nokia feature phone with KaiOS technology thinking… plusSame.

I bought an 8110 4G as a second phone but most of the time it lagged. The choice of processor was bad on Nokia’s part or perhaps the operating system was not well optimized. It had good battery life, but everything else was horrible. Nokia adorning it with old specs didn’t help much either, so I sold it and got an Android phone.

@GSMArena… post some articles on Ubuntu Touch… Let people know there is a free third OS option.

YUKI93, 23 hours agoNo one seems to care about KaiOS anymore, especially when Google removed the ability to send virtual text messages. plusI can definitely attest to that statement. I bought a Nokia phone with KaiOS technology thinking it would be great as a digital detox tool. Frankly speaking, it’s a complete waste of money. I ended up buying a second-hand Windows Phone device (the Microsoft Lumia 950 to be precise) and it’s a much better digital detox experience than KaiOS.

Anonymous, 18 hours agoFor me, the only operating system worse than KaiOS is MUI.Forget KaiOS or MUI, Linux doesn’t really work well as a mobile OS. That’s why we still don’t see mobile Linux going mainstream despite having Purism Librem 5 and PINE64 PinePhone/PinePhone Pro.

“I had a Xiaomi and it was so bad I bought my first iPhone 2 months after I got it. It was the worst phone I have ever used. Ads everywhere, full of bloat and a very unreliable MUI skin. I will never buy your junk again” .

He was rooting for Ubuntu Touch, his mobile operating system. He’s not dead yet, but he wanted him to succeed.

Vikass17, 16 hours agoTizen might work, but for some reason Samsung never took much of a chance with bada and tizen. T… plusSamsung Wave was great, but that was the only good phone with a bada OS and that’s not enough to compete. Wave 2 didn’t really bring any updates like one would expect, and that was the final nail in its coffin, even though Samsung probably already knew the platform wasn’t going anywhere. But the first Wave had some small aspects that were even better than Android (just like today, some OneUI features aren’t even in native Android).

Kai sucks. Slow and bad battery backup.
The old Nokia S40 or Symbian can run faster than this so call the new OS.
Evan with big funding and new hardware kai os phone cant run faster than old nokia s40 and symbian phone.

A problem was detected: Go Flip V runs an operating system based on AOSP, not KaiOS. Check the Alcatel and Verizon website.
