Jolla articles from different Tech Sites. Happy Reading!
“We were excited to get an extended look at a brand new smartphone player that’s building its own products and OS. However, we came away a little underwhelmed. The handset is distinct, but not remarkable, although we’re yet to see what can be done with the “other half.”
“The Jolla smartphone is certainly unique. The styling of the hardware is unusual and the gesture-based Sailfish OS is intriguing. I enjoyed my time with the device, but I’m still not sure who this handset is for.”
“The Jolla phone has colorful cases, runs Sailfish OS software but uses Android apps”
“Jolla now styles itself as a “distinct” mobile operating system and design philosophy, characterized by the use of swipe gestures instead of iOS- or Android-style navigation buttons.”
“Jolla’s first phone is very much a work-in-progress, and while that might appeal to the fans who have seen Meego develop into Sailfish and are keen to support the software as it grows, few consumers used to the iPhone and Samsung Galaxys will understand why Jolla is different and why it deserves praise.”

This is The Verge Hands on of the Jolla Phone. There are positive response and negative response that are on point.
The Jolla phone feels light and compact,
though it’s no category leader with a weight
of 141 grams and a thickness of 9.9mm.
– It’s also got a blocky, utilitarian design, which
nonetheless appeals with its quirky sandwich
look — courtesy of the swappable Other Half
back covers — and subtle Jolla branding set in
an inviting cursive typeface.
– Android Compatibility
– Two years in the making but no LTE support at launch
– Its reminiscent of the Nokia
N9, but in practice it’s highly unintuitive and
unwieldy to the point where the entire UI
paradigm can be considered broken.
transitions and in-app animations go from left
to right, inviting the user to swipe from right to left to go back, but that’s not how you’re supposed to do it. A notification pops down from the top of the screen, but if you try to swipe down to view it, you’re liable to unintentionally close your current app, or more annoyingly, lock the entire phone.
– Then there’s the fact that a swipe from the middle of the screen produces a different result than a swipe from the edge.
– It all adds up to a
frustrating learning experience. The user is
forced to adapt around the operating system
rather than the other way around.
I do agree in the UI side, I mean if you are not a techie Its pretty complicated and you really need to read or watch videos to understand the UI. But remember that its the Beta version of Sailfish OS so No Worries about that.

store for the Google Android operating system
