I have some suggestions for the Browser and for the mail client:

The Browser needs more settings, this is e.g. a possibility to only load text and nothing else, no images, no scripts etc. Also when I zoom in I miss that the lines do not break automatically. Right now I use webcat browser because I don't want pictures to be loaded - there it sometimes it is a mess - but also the native browser should be able to do so. Remember Opera mobile, there it wored fine with my n8.

The Mail Client also need a possibility to only load plain text messages especially when there are spam mails but you accidently click on it. Also the text size needs to be costumazible e.g. by zooming in, but when I zoom the text needs to break automatically.

For me these are key features which need to be included for anyone who wants to read news and mails with the phone and which need to be included before suggesting the phone to non techies. I don't know how other sailors think about it but readable pages are really important for me. When I can't read a news because of that and I have to wait until sitting on my computer it sometimes drives me crazy.

And just as a general comment: Although all people always say symbian is antiquated and old and so on, everytime I bought a Symbian device it was a complete and working phone where just minor things needed to be changed to get it working how it should. My wife still has her old n8 and sometimes I wish it back to have some features - until I try to close programms with gestures I am now used to thanks to the Jolla device. All in all I think the Jolla phone is pretty good given the time it exists but there is much room for improvement. e.g. without the patchmanager (openrepos) it always would drive me mad to switch on wlan mobile network or bluetooth. There needs to be a possibility to access most important things from anywhere and the events view is perfect for this.

So sail on and hopefully there will be many improvements on the device.

P.S. Sorry if there are some grammatical or vocabulary mistakes, my english is one thing I could improve

Edit: And a minor thing: I'd like to have some kind of "VIP-Profile". I understand it as follows: When I go to sports e.g. I dont want to be interrupted by calls which can be done later but if my wife wants me to be contactable I want to have a profile or ambience where all ring tones are silent except contacs I determined. That also could be my best friend when I know that he might be in trouble or whatever. On my n8 I categorized my contacts and had a VIP Group and a profile where it only ringed when people of that group tried to call me.
