I was one of the first ones who got a Jolla, so I've been using it for nearly a year now. At this point it is simply impossible for me to keep using it anymore, so I have to buy another phone - and believe me, it will not be another Jolla.

Apps. Ok. The thing you'll see most frequently on Jolla is "Google Play stopped working". Interesting, 'cause you can't even get Google Play on the bloody thing in the first place. But what it means is that basically 85% of Android Apps do not work. None of the native Google apps work. Gmail is the only thing you can use, but not very well. You can't see the headlines of emails for example. This alone is reason enough NOT to buy this piece of ****.

Getting wifi to work well is apparently impossible. Even a 3G-connection only works from time to time.

The camera is crap. 8MB my ***.

The battery dies during a work day, if you use the phone for anything.

So what can you do with Jolla? If you keep it connected to the charger 24/7 you can text and call someone. But even that doesn't work as well as it should.

The only reason I stuck with this phone for ten months is that I paid too much for it to shove it to the back of the drawer after a few weeks of use. But at this point I have no choice. My conscience won't let me sell it to anyone, because it would undoubtedly be a disappointment to him.

Jolla is the s*ittiests phone I have ever had. I'm completely baffled by the fact that so many of the internet reviews are so positive. Either the Jolla guys have hired a heck of a gang to write them, or the product guality is very inconsistent and I was unlucky enough to get a very poor product. But I'm not by any means the only one who is having trouble with Jolla. It is just not worth it. All the frustration it has caused me... Not to mention I bought it for 399 euros! In all honesty I have to say, don't buy it.

The one good thing about Jolla is that it does not have servers in US which means they won't spy on the user data and this is one of the biggest advantages of having them.

I could not restrain Myself from posting about the issue of pricing! people, we should not compare with xiaomi.moto g would be a fair comparison. despite being a dualcore ,it gets 17.5 In antutu.that is the same as moto g. But if u start comparing the os, the jolla phone will blow anything else out of the water, Ios combined. Mx player works flawlessly for those of u wondering .

i had seen bad performance of the android layer in reviews, like all the android apps open in one window only.so i had thought i could not use this as my primary phone.but after a week of using this i have made my moto x As the secondary phone,Such gReat is the ui. The android apps work flawlessly.and the battery life is also quite good.The native browser Is very slow, but using the android dolphin remedies it.

I had the n9 and it was hands down the best OS/phone I've ever had my only main gripe was the camera meego + 808 pureview should have been a beast. I have been using WP and out of the main OS is BY FAR my favourite as it is simple elegant and nokia hardware. But I was able to get a jolla 5 days ago... it started a bit rocky too few apps awkward navigation but as time passed I have started to see the possibilities. It is amazing not only what the OS can become in the future but such an amazing experience on a midrange hardware? Wow! Jolla is now my primary phone with the lumia 1020 being the secondary... Jolla WELL DONE!

I loved MeeGo in my N9 & now I am very a proud owner of the Jolla device :) 2 weeks in my pocket were enough to make me fall in love again!
