I need the battery to last for at least 5 days if the phone is on with only basic conectivity and very short calls (no more than 5 minutes / day).

Forget it, at least since the last releases. Be lucky if you manage two days.

The Jolla phone warranty is 1 year for the phone and 6 months for the battery. I think in the EU all electronics need to have at least 2 years warranty, but in any case, 6 months for the battery is not that much, and it doesn't seem possible to buy separate extra batteries. That would seem to imply that if the battery dies after 6 months you need to throw away the phone. Am I missing something? I think Jolla Care replaces battery if its within time of warranty. Guess they might have reserved a stock for that.

I don't remember if this was Internet hearsay or Jolla official information, but it seems that Jolla is in it mostly for the OS, which it intends to give away to third party hardware manufacturers to use in exchange for a percent of the profits from handset sales. If that's true, what's the future of the Jolla phone? Could I reasonably expect to be able to get a Jolla phone serviced a couple of years from now? I believe Jolla is not clear on this, serviceability. But if you compare with any other phone...what can you expect after a couple of years in terms of service? Maybe very huge brands, like Apple and maybe Nexus and Samsung Galaxy ones that's a possiblity. With serviceability, do you mean from Jolla Care (paid service from own pocket then I guess) or some other phone service company? I think you'd be pretty much left with a brick after two years, if something goes bad.

Forget it, at least with the battery time since the last releases. Be lucky if you manage two days with moderate use.use. But the whole use case on the other hand is strange, why buy a smart phone if you only want to use it for calling?

So if you use it with some daily web browsing some media playing, messaging, android apps. The battery is sucked dry after just a few hours. I'm not complaining, just saying what it is.
