The first actual review I've seen of the first 3rd party jolla device:

Didn't read further after seeing clear mistakes already in the beginning... this just must be an unreliable one. (1) "The first device to run Sailfish OS, the Jolla Tablet (2) "the first Sailfish smartphone, the Aqua Fish" (3) "Sailfish is an open-source OS"

Maybe the reviewer was supposed to type "the first phone made by other than Jolla" but who knows. Can only dream Indians will buy Aqua Fish in millions to prove the worthiness of SFOS. Well at least there's alternatives!

I read it some time ago and I understood that the author isn't aware of the existence of the Jolla phone.

Also Harmatten was an hybrid between MeeGo and Maemo.

Here are my review after using it for 6 months. I have used a JP1 before, so the review is


  • A bit faster than the JP1
  • Battery life is a bit better than the JP1
  • Screen is more readable in sunshine than the JP1


  • Camera quality is terrible. I know the "you get what you paid for", but is is still just terrible.
  • The black frame around the screen is painted and the painting started to fallen down in small pieces. To be honest I have no idea why did they painted it, because the frame itself is black (maybe to reduce the plastic phone feeling). It is not a pain but I mess up always something with small black paint pieces.
  • Sometimes something is messed up with the GSM part, noone can reach me (it rings out), and if I call someone it says Network error. I am only using 2G/3G and have no cellular data. JP1 with the same sim did not have this issue

Power button is also worn out.

My Intex Aquafish Review as of May 25th I have used the phone about 7 Months:
1. Colour
2. Price
3. OS
4. Screen

1. Middling / slow performance
2. Only works in select countries for 3G and LTE (impossible to figure out which)
3. Camera is mediocre (true for all SFOS Jolla or licensed devices as of May 2017)
4. Lacking fingerprint reader, NFC, nanoSIM, water and weather protection

Lack of nanoSIM is a plus IMO.

Slow Performance? You didn't have the JP1 in comparison ;-) the reason I switched to Intex instead of the JP1 was basically double ram and faster & more cpu cores
