I have been enjoying the Firefox OS experience until my Keon's battery
died. Last I used was 1.2. Updates were regular and always brought in new
features. Not been able to use it as my main phone though.

I think it's reasonable to say that geeks are not really the target
audience for Firefox OS. It gives you a good smart phone experience on
something that might have otherwise been a feature phone experience. So if
you're looking for something simple and non-taxing, for example, a majority
of the time doing phone calls and text with some data usage I think it
would work out a great phone. If you want it to do more it is certainly
capable, I know members of this community who use it every day, but I see
it as still rough around the edges for day-to-day use compared to existing
