To get the real feel of user experience of the device, and understand practical difficulties; beyond research and testing, the phone has to be used on daily basis.

So the question is: how many of the Jolla Oy staff actually use Jolla phone as their PRIMARY smartphone?

It would be nice to have a number like: x out of 125. well, the number isn't that significant. but at least how many among the management & tech roles.. who makes decisions regarding the phone or OS functionality.

Asking this because sad to see things lije: tjc website isn't rendered the best on Jolla phone

In what way is this website not rendered the best? The more specific you are in your request the better people can help fix it.

Interesting question, hope the answer is 100% ;-)

Is it possible to use the Jolla as primary phone if you have to be sure that your phone is working whenever you need it, whether a call is coming in or you want to make one at a remote location (remote in terms of GSM signal), are lost there and have to find your way back using a navigation app, being open air with just decent sunshine ...? Or does Jolla staff get hand selected devices that do not have all the random shut downs, that have a high-contrast displays and so on?

How is this question relevant? What difference does it make if the answer is 5% or 100%?

@ossi1967: It shows commitment. The answers show: The commitment to solve the problems existing is too low to have any chance to get the (hardware) problems solved soon. We have bought a developer device, not a device for daily use. Fortunately, the summer mainly was not too bright, so the display was legible most of the time. But I have lost too many incoming phone calls and could not make outgoing calls when required during the last 2 months: I have taken my consequences -- and say Good Bye. Unfortunately I am left with a very expensive brick on my desk.

Everyone of us have Jolla-device but we do not track sailors or anyone else if they are using the device as their primary one. Personally I believe that the percentage is very near full 100%.

Jolla doesn't track others -thats one reason we prefer Jolla. But data can be gathered if submitted voluntarily.. the way tigeli & sdjayna just did :)

Indeed I think about everybody uses their jolla as a primary device. I personally believe strongly in "eat your own dogfood" so I have been using mine as primary device from before the launch. And I sure would call out a fellow sailor if I saw they didn't use the Jolla as a primary phone.

Well, I won't comment too much on the primary smartphone thing, apart from to say I usually have one in each pocket. And some of us get extra special attention at airport security when we're carrying three or four.

But anyway together.j.c is based on Askbot ( +, we've tweaked it a little for Jolla - or mobile devices in general I should say - but clearly it could do with some more tweaking. If there's something specific just say and we'll try and make it better, but alas otherwise it's a rather boring answer: resources are focussed on making the device itself better.

Sorry, this "answer" should be conveted to a comment.

The question was not "how many Jolla devices do you carry with you." The question is: "How many Jolla staff use the phone as their only phone" (or at least primary, i.e. any other device as back up only).

Several vital issues have not yet been solved (e.g. random restarts, UI elements being unreadable due to missing contrast) in 8 software updates, rendering the device unusable as primary device. This lets grow the doubt, that Jolla management and decision makers use the device for more than just having some fun during leisure time.

Sadly I have to agree jgr!

We all know that Jolla phone could not be as stable as an iphone for example. They invest much more money and have more development resources. But things like sudden reboots or browser crashes are not acceptable for daily business! There are more then 300 people voting up these threads. So it is clearly a general problem, which also appar on some stuff phones.

These problems need to be fixed with highest priority! Things like Starter are second when native jolla users are tortured by these malfunctions!
