Lately I unfortunately had several times to restore the device, and each time i had to take the tutorial, which is a bit long and boring now... I think at the beginning there should be a question like: "Do you already know how to use Sailfish OS?"

full support. it is just one question more for someone new, but would have spared me more than 8 tutorial tours setting up devices for friends and family and resetting my own ;)

What about lock and unlock using power button, long tap, close?

Additionally, it would be convinient to be able to remove the Tutorial same way as any other app by using the GUI.

I have a folder with utils and I moved the tutorial app there, I find it useful when I demo Jolla to people ;-)

You can close the tutorial by tapping all 4 corners clockwise starting with top-left (iirc this does only work on the first page). It is good to have new users forced to do the tutorial but at the same time have a hidden way to close it for advanced users (can be part of the tutorial!). We are mostly talking about Nerds here, people most known to the abbreviation RTFM but still trying to do everything without it. Many how-do-I duplicates here are in the tutorial. I totally agree that the tutorial needs to improve and a good way would probably be to have a video tutorial installed (the YT tutorials are actually pretty nice!) to the device by default, which can be removed later (free up space).

You can close the Tutorial App directly like any other app by swiping from side and then closing. (Or directly closing by swiping from top, but that has to be enabled first.)

I think this is also possible when the app starts for the first time, isn't it?

Not when you first use the device, i'm pretty sure about it

I had tried closing it by swipe from top edge. But it can't work, because this function is not activated by default.
