I had to give up after about 9 months of usage as the only phone (and I am not the only one):

  • Phone has shut down out of a sudden repeatedly, e.g. on incoming calls (there are many reports on battery / battery connection problems here)
  • Screen is illegible on a sunny day (also several reports here)
  • Still problems to synchronize phone with desktop easily and reliable (e.g. contacts, calendar, data)

People are claiming that they have no problems whatsoever and even screen legibility is a poor hardware problem on individual devices. But well: I expect Jolla is still selling its first production batch, so how can you be sure to get a better device?

It is also claimed, that Jolla would be listening to its users. Well, if their ideas fit into their plans, yes. If not, they do not care. The screen legibility could easily be enhanced with a user interface providing good contrast (and a font with slightly thicker lines). This has been requested from the very beginning (as option) -- the improvements have been minor since only, I expect simply because a really good-contrast UI does not fit into their idea of a cool design.

I am not using the Jolla phone any longer!

PS: Keep in mind: Who has left the boat is rarely still reading/posting here.
