I was hoping to use SFOS X 3 when it is available with a Sony XA2 but wondered how usable it would be WITHOUT using the Android subsystem/apps?

It will be 100% usable.

Depends on how much you depend on Android apps. Write down which apps you use on android and find if SFOS has ones that offer the same feature set. You'll get your answer.

Actually I don’t want to use any Android apps, my needs are pretty simple (notes, contacts, calendar, IMAP email, Twitter) so am hoping they can all be covered by SFOS apps?

All of these can be covered by SailfishOS apps ;-)

@DavidG: Like @ced117 already wrote, they're all covered by SFOS apps. There's one Twitter client called Piepmatz which is amazing - in my opinion actually one of the best, if not the best 3rd party Twitter client on any platform :) https://openrepos.net/content/werkwolf/piepmatz

On Openrepos.net (unofficial store) you get some insights of available apps for Sailfish OS. But that's not the official store - so you won't find every available app on Openrepos.

Quite a lot of providres specific services with closed API are not availabe. I.e. there is no bank in Russia who released app for SFOS. Large IT comapnies like Yandex also do not release nothing for SFOS: no Yandex.Taxi, no Yandex.Money
