Ubuntu Touch is currently in development.

As said in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install, stable releases are only for

Google's LG Nexus 4

Google's Samsung Galaxy Nexus

You can see on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices that you can build Ubuntu Touch for Samsung Galaxy S4, but :

  1. Sound is broken
  2. Camera is broken
  3. Cellular radio (call/sms) is broken
  4. Frequent freezes and random reboots occur.

So you could try Ubuntu Touch, but certainly not use it on daily bases.

  • after announcing ubuntu for phones almost one year ago ...where do we get information about developments then ... Jan 4, 2014 at 3:16
  • Informations : wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch and forum.xda-developers.com . Ubuntu Touch was announced for "Nexus" devices since day 1. Other smartphones are not backed by Cannonical and are developed only by fan-developers.
