The termux terminal emulator for Android is the best way to have a Linux command line on an Android device. This works even on an unrooted device like mine. And you can even use apt-get to install a limited array of software to enhance the application.

This would be very useful with a Bluetooth keyboard to make typing quicker and easier. An OTG cable would also be a good idea, this would allow plugging a full-size keyboard into your phone and use the terminal to its full capacity.
