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.

Except basic cellphones last for an eternity on one charge compared to big screen smartphones.

Oh really? My old Samsung C90 could barely survive 2 days in idle mode. Siemens C45 - 3 days, while iPhone5 or Xperia Mini can work 3-4 days with music, internet, etc
