Hey S_O.
First of all, big thanks for the opportunity to test sailfish, it's much appreciated
The verdict, in short, is that the OS is a no go for me. There are to many uncertainties, mostly regarding the support for android apps. Will an update break the ussage of a given app?
Then there's the whole camera and bluetooth issues on the xperia x.
A daily issue with sailfish was the browser, damn that is just utterly time robbing, seriously bad and slow, not even firefox would do the job for me. Simple everyday tasks just got annoying to do.
Though i really like the idea behind and the overall feel Sailfish has.
The thing for me is i'm not in the same place anymore, i just want things to work without any fiddling, it just dont give me any pleasure what so ever anymore, rather the opposite.
I really tried to like the OS as my greatest experiences with mobile 'hacking' was with N900 and N9, though those times are just in the past.
The thing is every tine i see a N900 or a N9 for sale some part in me wants ti buy it even though i know i have absolutely no use of it other than sentimental use lol. Still best ride ever with a smartphone

Regards Dousan.

If you're main use on Sailfish are Android apps...then just pick an Android phone I agree on the browser, which sometimes is quite bad.
Anyway, whenever you want I will be happy to try that phone too

It's not android apps per se, it's just apps that run on either android or iOS and i have an iPhone 6 that runs just fine. I just wanted some more freedom and didn't want to go full android. I was looking for the Meego experience with android support

Just pm me an address

I must admit statements like that really puzzle me. Every time I read something like that, I keep asking myself, what on earth can these people possibly be trying to do that the Sailfish browser cannot do? I have never had any major issue. Small niggles, definitely. Like for example the infamous disco lights on loading a page with "too many" (read, "more than three") pictures, but that has been fixed as far as I can tell. My only remaining issue is that a text selection does not work in browser edit boxes. I still cannot understand why. It works everywhere else.

Itís not so much it canít do it, itís more the speed and at times it doesnít fully load the page or it takes minutes to do so.

If I should paint a picture it would be like racing a Fiat 127 in a F1 race. It would be able to get around the course though at a ridiculous pace compared to a F1 car lol.

Minutes? Any Examples?

Didnít time it with a stopwatch, just an estimate.

Donít see the point in giving examples, though thanks if your intention was to help me get a better experience with the sailfish browser

Just my 2 cents - web changes way too much too often for ancient version of Gecko to cut it. Browser itself is great, but there is really no point in denying that its underlying engine needs some love, no point in blaming users for various speed and compatibility issues. If it "works for you", then great. I don't know how you do it, for me even stupid gmail can't render itself properly.

I am not convinced it is Gecko. It could be just the hardware. My Jolla 1 is faster at loading the websites that I frequent faster than my daughter's Android tablet, but I it is just a dual-core, 1GB, 8 years old thing. I am happy to believe that a recent deca-core, 8GB super-duper mega device will come out more favourably compared to Jolla.
