I have a Sony Zperix phone with Sailfish. Got a few problems.

  • Camera is really dark. Tried to find similar problems, but all I found was questions about black pictures. The problem is not with the camera itself. It works fine for instance wit MiracuCam. It doesn't matter what ISO you choose.
  • Whatsapp doens't communicate with anything else. If you get a message you can't save the phone number straight from whatsapp. You need to write it separately to the contacs.
  • Whatsapp pictures don't show in the gallery and there fore cannot be used. I have version 2.18.192
  • Whatsapp doesn't show new messages (little red number in the sorner of the icon)
  • Mouhijoki update notification won't go away even though I have updated the phone two weeks ago.

If these questions have been answered before, please give me the links. Thank you.

About the darkness in your camera just a stupid idea: there is a plus/minus slider on the left side that should be in the middle of the line. I just mention it because in my early SFOS times it takes me a week to figure out why my camera is dark.

Sadly the Whatsapp issues are not a bug on your phone; they are simply missing features from the Android support. The contacts are exported to Android read-only, and so is the Android gallery (though the images should be available to other Android apps, I believe).

The notification message includes the number of unread messages, but the "little red" number is missing.

It's good that you mention them to attract some attention on them, though.

The Android issues with saving pics and contacts is as designed.

Android support isn't permitted to access the gallery and phone-book for editing as I've understood right.

@BonoNL And what would be the motivation behind this design? It just seems missing functionality to me; I don't see a reason why it would be a good idea to disallow it.
