Good morning, there are chances that the functions, such as bluetooth and other sensors, not officially supported by jolla are implemented on sailfish x? Since such as bluetooth and gps I use them a lot and I would not find myself without these functions Thank you

primary sensor that needs support and has been consistently ignored in Sailfish Ports and Xperia Sailfish X is the compass, that also didnt work on the Turing Phone and on the Aquafish.

Bluetooth is working for me for connecting to my bluetooth speaker aswell as keyboard and transfering files. So maybe not all bt features are supported but it works fine for my needs on the Xperia X. Maybe it is also all you need.

As for GPS that works just fine. Used it to navigate very often.

Note : If bluetooth fails to pair from the graphical interface, you can usually pair successfully from the command line.

Well. command line is probably not what you want to do when trying to transfer something ad hoc...

GPS works fine, I would say better than on the Intex, better reception, shorter time to first fix (I did not compare with the Jolla 1).

GPS doesn't work well actually and doesnt work well in all Android Apps, signal aquisition is too slow, accuracy not very good, and when using GPS app and starting to track and switching on GPS after mapping app has started and tracking, routing is on, results in abstract issues.

ok, I'm a bit 'worried because on the purchase page is written that functions like bluetooth, fingerprints, gps and various sensors of the device are not supported and then I thought wrong, then the above work in a basic but there are , quite right?

I've seen the fingerprint sensor working in a video on jolla blog, where the founder Marc Dillon send digital money... So I think that fingerprint sensor will be activated soon... or this was a mockup(!).
