Also, define "new". I am not in the position to buy...

That's what we thought (were told) when Jolla came out with 1GB. Within less than a year since the release an update came out that could not handle more than 3 very basic applications running...

Re: Xperia XA2 vs X

Quite so! I am not (yet) changing my Jolla while it still works and fulfills my needs. Ask yourself if your current phone does and only 'upgrade' if the answer is no.

Re: Palm is back... um, or wtf

"Uptime" or "talk time"? If the latter, then it is about four times better than my Jolla.

And what is this "NumberShare" thingy they talk about? Something US-specific again?

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

XA2 is newer. That qualifies as "better", does it not? ;)

Oh, and it has a fingerprint scanner at the back as opposed to on the side.
Yeah, that must be it.
