Today I got a cheap Android phone with some small goodies - 1GB RAM, 4 core MT CPU, 5" screen with 720 x 1280 p and 294 ppi, 8 MPix camera, 4G, real GPS and very big battery. I configured this phone some hours. After configurating I took my jolla and I feel that I do not want never to use the cheap Android phones - differences is too big for the benefit Jolla. This cheap Andro for my fife's sport tracking and unfortunally I don't know about GPS accuracy.
After updates Jolla is a very good small phone and can run my favorite Android apps like ColorNote, MS Office, Waze, AdobeAcrobat, OutOfMilk, TuneInRadio, MX Player, Firefox, PrettyPainter, others and lot of Jolla app's. Compass with magnetometer on board but Inclinometer can't calibrated. GPS accuracy compared with HTC top phones but little slow. Sound in 3,5 audio is not good but not bad too - listened with amplifier or better headphones. Handling without case is bad but phone itself looks cool (best handling etalons for me is LG P500 Optimus One and SonyEricsson Aspen M1 with physical qwerty keyboard). Camera is not good but better than Marshall phone camera (without settings). Sailfish OS like the increasingly more and more, little bit a stiff but I like it (I have lot of Androids, WP phones, Symbians and old WinMo's and tablets too). Jolla is my main phone sinc march 2016. I think Jolla has to find itself as among the other phones. Good luck, Jolla!
It's hardware friendly compared to androlags. Because it uses c++ on its apps while androlags use java and java virtual Machine called ART.
Hello Guys. Please visit this thread at Jolla and Sailfish OS forum. I've listed almost all the features that everyone wants in the next version of Sailfish OS. Don't forget to cast your votes. http://forum.jollausers.com/sa...(must-read)/
Sailfish OS 2.0 is very nice. I'm using Intex Aqua Fish which is a rebranded Jolla C phone. So far, I like the OS. It doesn't have as many features as Androids because it is a new OS on version 2.0. Give it some time. Hope Jolla is here to make a difference.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR, DO NOT BUY A JOLLA PHONE! My Jolla phone was a huge disappointment! Mobile reception was awful and WiFi via eduroam cannot be used with standard settings. In addition the charger only worked when arranged in a certain angle and eventually didn't work at all anymore. When I returned the phone they charged me 90$ for 1 missing cable - no chance to send it to them afterwards. I feel ripped off.

Namibia is the only African country licensed to sell it, maybe you should get there since it is close to south africa, or maybe get in touch with the company that sells it through the net.
Hi, I'm in South Africa and in need of this jola phone. What should I do? Here is my email to those who wana help me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you sure you own a Jolla phone? Because if you do, almost every 1 to 2 month period they will update their OS, at first they will release to the early adopters first, sooner later(usually 1 to 2 week) they will release it globally.
I just bought jolla a few months back.A lot is exaggerated about this phone.I think it is terrible for 14000. It always asks for Internet connection. Rarely reads the memory card.Camera is not great either just okay.Great idea but poor execution.A really bad mistake.DON'T BUY IT.!!!!
Hi I had purchased jolla through snapdeal in india, Jolla smartphone is great phone, from Nokia n900 to n9 and later I started using jolla but sad to say all of sudden my jolla stopped vibrating and it is still under warranty, I sent mails to snapdeal and jolla customer care but none of them are ready to solve vibration issue jolla says contact snapdeal, and snapdeal says contact jolla, jolla has no service centres in India, I mailed jolla asking about HCL service centres to repair the phone but customer care is not ready to answer my question, from past one month I have been trying to contact jolla and snapdeal for repair, I suggest Indian jolla fans to wait till jolla setup a service centres in India till then don't buy the phone, presently the jolla phone is sold out in snapdeal. And my jolla phone is resting in a box in my cupboard.

The partnership between HCL and Nokia goes back almost a decade and half as HCL were the national distributors of nokia phones in India. We as employees used to get discount in nokia phones. It is not surprising that Jolla has a tie up now with HCL to service jolla phones as they were ex-nokians.

I had signed up for limited edition of Jolla they day it was announced. I waited for almost a year hoping it will get released in India soon then I decided to buy it directly from Jolla shop site from finland and shipped it to UK and then my friend brought it to India from UK...
