Jolla’s Sailfish phone is new to Indian shores. How are they receiving it? Times of India question whether it’s a good alternative to Android in their review.
Design wise, they see some cues from Nokia’s N9. To TOI, it looks a little thick, especially when viewed from the sides it appears like two slim phones on top of each other.
For the price, they really were expecting a lot more than 960×450 for the display. Legibility in sunlight was average.
Software wise, there’s been a few updates since release (and another on the way). Like pretty much every review of Sailfish, they mention the steep learning curve with this gesture based UI as ‘taking some time to get used to’.
This is a phone for enthusiast, not for everyday buyers. At this price, alternatives include the Nokia Lumia 730, Micromax Canvas knight, Asus ZenFone 6 and HTC Desire 616.
