The best phone: A SMART WATCH?!?

What is the most important task of a phone? That you are available to receive calls and have the ability to make calls. This is perfectly suited for a wrist worn device. With a build in speaker on speakerphone and with a Bluetooth headphone (or headset) more privately.

Secondary task (in terms of communication) is receiving and sending texts. Receiving shouldn't be any issue, sending is a bit more difficult because screen typing is hard on such a small screen. But solutions like voice dictation or calling back instead of texting can solve that easily.

Then a very good third task should be music/podcast listening. But with the before mentioned Bluetooth headphones and streaming services (and local storage) that is a great use case for smart watches.

And don't forget NFC for contactless payments! (and other fun stuff)

And why should we even consider switching to smart phone watches?
Because with coloured e-ink displays (like on the Pebble Time) and it mostly being in a standby state we could once again have phones with days of standby time instead of just barely making it through the day.!

This is cool and all, but what about Ubuntu Touch/Ubuntu Phone? 😎

So not all standalone smart watches are good...
Do NOT buy the LG Watch Sport...

I've installed Linux Mint 16.* on my brother's pc and he's been using it without much complaints. I have to migrate him some day to 64-bit but otherwise I won't be switching him to something else.

I could probably switch him to Solus to be honest but he is reluctant to change...😐
