Please make smaller and lighter phones, sized like:


Smaller phones don't necessarily need to be ultra slim (although the SX is less than 10mm and less than 100g), so it may be easier to put a better camera (like a similar camera like the Nokia 808/1020, also the slimmest compact cameras with zoom are about 15mm thick -cybershot tx55 or similar- by the way). Actually the Xperia Z1 Compact comes pretty close to what is really good regarding camera, size and specs (bluetooth 4, usb host, video out, card reader), but it's not Jolla!!

Also, you need to move the camera in case you want somebody to be able to make an "other half" that is a keyboard. Regarding to the "other half", I think you probably need to add USB (host/client) and Power (source/drain) in addition of SPI for connectivity between the two halves.

Please try to account for that in the next Jolla so that I can buy one :) Even though girls carry a bag and could in theory carry huge phones, we don't have big hands and hate the weight, please, make normal sized phones. You are ex-Nokians, small phones with good camera and good battery life was the thing a few years ago.

i actually like the size of 4.5", but not with that huge bezels aspecially the lower bezel. What is the point of having no buttons, if you have space for 2 rows of it.

@michel - I don't know about you, but I like having a good grip on my phone, and don't mind the present bezel.
It should definitely not be larger, but the way it is is fine with me at least.

(also: see my "answer" below, regarding moving all further discussion in this "wishes for future Jolla phones" matter to the one already existing (see link in the answer below))

well... I need at least 5.5" with wacom-style stylus... (as a SG Note II user all other phones are really tiny)

Hello @romancini,

I think @vattuvarg's answer/suggestion to the question/suggestion "Jolla 2nd device HW suggestions." would suit you as well.

@Anna answer-commented that the N9 would be the perfect size for a future "Jolla 2", and I and many others agree.

I suggest this question/suggestion to be closed, and move all further discussions/suggestions to the "Jolla 2nd device" one instead.
