Given I could not get a Jolla C I went for an Intex aqua fish. Just dispatched from Dehli it should take a while to reach Costa Rica but I already want to see what native options I could have!
Just got an Intex the other day, very happy so far. Most whizz-bang handset out there? Hell no...but if you're reading this, chances are you don't care about that anyway. Great value!

Similarly for Telegram you can go for Jollagram which is a native Sailfish build of Telegram.
And go for Prostogram if you want a native Instagram client.
There's even a Tinder client called Sailfinder and Reddit client called Quickddit.
Do remember to install Warehouse for SailfishOS from Open Repository to ensure latest updates.
Hello guys, please have a look at this thread at Jolla & Sailfish OS Forum. I have 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/sailfish-news/list-of-features-that-we-all-want-in-next-version-of-sailfish-os-(must-read)/
Vishal, 17 Aug 2016Indeed, however when it was rebadged as Intex Aqua Fish they changed the body color to Orange ... moreI got the Intex Aqua Fish for about 5200 INR on Snapdeal a week ago. As it is a rebranded Jolla C, the design is same but as you said the back cover is orange with an Intex logo engraved in metallic silver words is present below the camera, it doesn't look that bad and if someone wants, they can peel off the logo quite easily. In fact the design looks standout to me because it's a simple and elegant and is rectangular with no curved edges. At the end, everyone has different design preferences. I bought this phone only because of the Sailfish OS 2.0 and I'm using it as my primary phone along with a Redmi Note 3. Have been a fan ever since Jolla announced themselves but couldn't get the Jolla phone that was released in India through Snapdeal so opted for this phone. The unique thing is the Sailfish OS. It didn't take me more than 5-10 minutes to be familiar with the OS. So far I find Sailfish OS 2.0 to be a very nice, user friendly OS with real multitasking capabilities as you can enjoy live multitasking, no lagging at all except a little bit in the settings app, the UI relies on gesture or swipe based navigation and is button less, this ensures better one handed usage and being used to Sailfish OS, I no longer like to use Android phones. Another nice thing is that the OS supports Android apps so you won't feel App-less but some Android apps like Xender & Shareit don't work (aren't able to create Wi-Fi Hotspot) though it is a bit less in features compared to Android but with software updates things will definitely get better. Android phones come with a bunch of Google crapware installed which are mostly useless to me as I only use the web version of Gmail & Youtube and sometimes the Play Store. Thankfully Sailfish OS doesn't come with Google crapwares installed. I am compiling a list of features that are needed and will be posting it on the Sailfish Forum soon.

In India the price has dropped further to mere Rs 4500 which equals to a mere $ 67.30 which is damn cheap. And as far as smoothness is considered it works smoother than Lumia 650 and 640 which cost more than twice of its price.
In India, Jolla C is sold as Intex Aqua Fish. I've ordered it and waiting for it to arrive to experience Sailfish OS 2.0. (:
Anonymous, 28 May 2016Either this is as powerful as a 2 stone bouncer or the Jolla O/S is very lightweight.No the hardware isn't powerful at all, it's just that Sailfish OS is damn lightweight.
Oops my bad, they had a discount coupon code for this phone and after applying that the price reduces to mere Rs 4950, which is merely $ 73.75.
At such a low price I'm fine with buying this device. And since in India it is sold rebadged via Intex brand so unlike the European Jolla C the one available here got 1 year warranty.
In India this phone is still available although they have partnered with a brand called Intex and have rebadged it.
The rebadged variant of this phone is known as Intex Aqua Fish and it's available at an extremely low price of Rs 5499 which is almost equal to mere $ 81.9.
dear jolla, can you improve the specs and get rid of sailfish os 2.0! for the next jolla? no i cannot tolerate the os and specs 8mp to 20mp hd to 2160x3840 uhd! and snapdragon 823!
Sold out already, only 1000 will be made. Jolla doesn't need to sell this phone widely, they just want to focus on the software of Sailfish by gathering feedback from these phones and users, all to improve the OS.
Best multitask menu ever in smartphones - icons for the opened apps stand in their place and the last used app does not replace the previous in menu.
Community developers are buying it and it is already sold out. Only offered 1000 units.
This would not have made the grade 3 to 4 years ago, let alone now.
