I decided to answer here (on topic). The Sailfish OS 2.1
is still alpha port but it is working pretty well. So far I have noticed two bugs.
- Every time I reboot the phone I need to enter SIM-code two times (I believe this is CM based bug)
- Sometimes battery level will stuck to 100%
Also FM radio and Bluetooth are not working yet but maybe later. Battery life is batter than on Android but I did overclock to 1,3Ghz on Android. Sailfish OS is different than any other OS so it takes little time to get used to it. The OS itself is beautiful and gestures are nice with QWERTY slider device. It feels natural to swipe from left and right when your thumbs are moving on keyboard already. Biggest issue is the "app gap" since the Android apps are not working on unofficial Sailfish OS ports. However there is community based app store called Warehouse
. There is some useful apps that are missing from official Jolla Store. There is also some fixes like allowing rotation to landscape.
