are you living in India? or do you travel there often?

Yes

do you have a local (India) operator SIM?

Yes

top 3 local (to India) apps you use

Only Banking Apps - would definitely prefer native apps for those, rather than being forced to use Android ones.

Other indian apps that I have used in the past include OLX, Foodpanda, travel centric app like IRCTC (Official app), Cleartrip & RedBus, payment service apps like Suvidha & Paytm.

I certainly hope you look at the apps included and offered through the Samsung Tizen app store (India). Also, just compare the top 50 apps in the Indian Google Play, Samsung Android Store and Apple App Store and pick out the common ones.

(I don't think I am a "typical" mobile user as I am not very "app centric", and generally avoid them due to privacy concerns. But I am a minority, and I am sure 99% of the rest would consider a Jolla phone useless without WhatsApp and Facebook.)

do you own a Jolla phone?

Yes
