Mozilla & Gecko clones

Whether or not the Open fits your needs, one thing is clear: Mozilla needs more capable hardware to demonstrate Firefox OS' potential. The Open is good for someone whose alternative would be a basic flip phone, but the camera quality, connectivity, display and performance don't do full justice to the software.

A promising start, but clearly better hardware is needed. I'm really hoping Firefox OS gets a fair shot.

'it's meant to deliver a smartphone experience to those who'd otherwise buy a basic cellphone -- not to become the "next iOS or Android.


The point is that vastly better hardware is available in the same price range. eg Huawei Y300 - dual core, 512MB RAM, 800x480 IPS screen etc sells for under $100.
