It is now the time to put my Jollaphone to wait for better times. I hate to say it but I had greater expectations from this product, especially when it is sort of a descendant of my all-time-favourite phone Nokia N900. Few facts that led me to this conclusion:

  • still no working exchange account, after multiple tries now I can't even add any exchange accounts. There probably exists a solution for this but... I never had to struggle with email accounts in Maemo or Symbian (or WP)
  • strange behaviour of audio routing with external FM transmitter & car's bluetooth handsfree (
  • media player is quite limited, for example no search feature exists
  • phone's surprisingly weak construction, I have a broken glass which haven't occurred with me since the days of Nokia 2110 and before Jolla I've been using a bunch of communicators, Lumias and so on.
  • no navigation
  • email client's defiences
  • even I noticed that I do like gesture-based UI, it is not finished yet and in some cases makes things a little bit difficult/complicated

Back to Lumia it is, even I never liked WP but it is more polished and functional, at least with the things that are important to me. I do trust that Jolla will get there... but that time has not yet arrived.

Anywayz, keep up the good work Jolla people.

It will be a journey together to being a full polished OS, BUT even I must agree with their beta status removed I feel that there still is too many basic things missing. I do know it will all come in time but at this stage it still feels like beta.

I will still continue using it as my main phone as I can overcome the issues and just work with community and Jolla to bring the improvements.

I had to switch back to N9 after 3 moths of using Jolla as my primary. Just too many little things that arent working fluently...

i'm close to the same decision, shifting back on N9, but decide to wait for another couple updates (assuming they are monthly ones).

I have downvoted this post because it brings nothing new to the discussion. This is something more suited to be posted on a blog or a forum, but not here. (This is not to say I don't agree with the things you mentioned, of course.)

phone's surprisingly weak construction

I have to disagree on this one. The phone fell several times, once from a moving bike, with no damage apart from slightly chipped corners. My previous Nexus 4 glass was broken twice in 6 month.
