Hi there

I have been running Sailfish since my first Jolla (The First One), then I bought a Jolla C (But my First on is still my favourite)....

No I want a new phone, but the Sony Xperia X is to large on my pockets, i want a smaller phone, so I have been searching for someone who tried to put Sailfish on the Sony Xperia X Compact?

Consider carrying your phone in a bag. Because it may not be health to keep a phone on your body (in a pocket). And size doesn't matter in this case.

Good joke, not everyone is wearing a bag.

I prefer smaller phones as well and I really thought about buying the Compact variant -- until I went to a shop and compared it to a full sized Xperia X in real life. The Compact is indeed smaller, but the downside is, it is much thicker and has sharp edges. I think the full sized model fits my pocket even better than the Compact! But YMMV...

True, Xperia X size is ok when we consider only a pocket but it's way different when you try to use the phone with one hand only.

If it is a community port, you will probably not have Alien Dalvik (Android layer). Just noting this.

Don't forget to vote for this thread, X Compact needs strong voice to convince Jolla there's enough interest in this phone to provide official port.

@domino4evers Yes, X_Compact SfOS_Edition is my everyday device.

Mine too. Still hoping for a future SFos update.

Mine too. Using it since October last year. Just great. @steph did a great job. I hope Jolla will support it officially as one of the next devices now that all sister devices (standard X and dual SIM X) are officially supported already.
