I am using an Intex Aqua Fish as my two years old Jolla1 didn't survive a cleaning cycle in the washing machine with 1600 rpm :-( so I can compare.

I have removed the Gaana app and Intex repository as described in another thread on tjc.

General build build quality is not impressive but better than I thought, given the very low price. The larger ram and the processor allow for a significant smoother experience when running a few andoidid apps as I regularly do. Battery life is much better, even with Google Services running (shame on me for using them). One full charge gives me two days, even with Wifi and Bluetooth turned on most of the time and listening to podcasts a lot. This is roughly double the time I could expect from my slightly aged Jolla1 battery.

Overall I am pretty happy with the phone and can recommend it at that price point, even though I find the form factor a bit too large - but I guess that is a matter of taste anyway.

My carrier doesn't offer LTE in it's services, so I cannot comment on that aspect. G3 works perfectly, though, and that is good enough for me.
