The short answer: NO.
The longer answer:
- My Wife hates it, as the indicator lights blinks at night.
- My colleagues (mobile software developers) laughs at it.
- I used it as my main phone from January until mid-march. Now I am back on my iPhone.

The main reasons are:

  • It never managed to connect to the wlan at work (ALL other phones never had any problems - we are using an apple airport time capsule)
  • It needs a reboot every week. (my iPhone NEVER needs a reboot..)
  • The browser is terrible
  • Android support is unstable/unfinished/slow scrolling. iPhone apps are better than the android ones anyway ... and native Sailfish apps are few and far between
  • In iOS, I can easily say that a particular app should not use mobile data. I only have 250 MB/month, and so this missing functionality really irritates me.
  • no support for apple services such as photo stream, syncing of contacts, etc..
  • its not easy to sync it with my mac with an USB cable.
  • The development environment (QT creator) is really a looong way behind Xcode, I especially miss the "Analyze code" feature that automatically finds bugs for you.
