1) I live in India 2) I use tata docomo and reliance. 3) I use apps like whats app, share it, facebook, paytm and some gaming apps. 4) I have intex aqua fish. (I think main drawback of sailfish is app compatibility and some,essential apps like share it doesn't work. )

I live in India.

I use a pre-paid Vodafone 3G sim & will probably jump onto the Vodafone 4G roll-out next year.

I have a Jolla & am using it as my primary phone for a couple of months now, without Alien Dalvik.

What Sailfish is missing isn't apps; it is popular features like:

I'm not a heavy app user, but I can confirm the importance of Whatsapp chat 'n call, Ola/Uber/TaxiForSure cab-hire, IRCTC Indian Railways travel booking. Mobile wallets aren't a big deal yet here, but are coming up fast & network operators have their own wallets too.

i live in india i use vodafone and tata docomo and will use jio after 2.04 uupdate i generally use apps like flipkart google maps and mx player

what i and my friends like about sailfisg is its very simple and easy to use
no need to reach the far cornors of the screen , so unlike,its always fun to explore sailfish

improvments required.... me and my friends suggest adding.. multiple cut copy paste in file manager file manager really needs tu be rebuilt along with a long list o features

what i noticed is android apps can no utilise the hardware featurea like bluetooth i.e.thwre is no bluetooth optiin for saring via any android application simillarly the cannot find the hotspot shearing feature to share files(internet sharing) but they can access camera ,if they can access camera then why cant the accesa othee feature they cannot access memory card

it looks like i have world in one phone on is android and other is sailfish and both of them have no links with each other the galary app should have more photos and video controls and ther should be double tap to.zoom so as to let only one hand to have contro over zooming

if u want to survive although ur os is outstanding in terms of usee experiwnce in navigation native apps but u should make android apps use the fone fully

what i like the most is navigation via simple swipes the media app
i really have very short hands with very small fingers and i feel that sailfish is just the right choice for me its a work of a genious

most importantly sailfish should give advertisemwnts of the os in a very interesting looking hardware
like jolla(1) in india because it will definately attract the youth just hit the market with a bang and a hell lot of advertisements and make people know about yur n9 thingi in india because nokia lovers will buy it and if they like it they are goona boast it as i do ....

and jolla bring yourself in india i.e. ur brand name

i use intex aqua fish
