The answer for me is too late.
The phone failed me yesterday in an emergency again, it started displaying ‘Problem with network’ errors when I was in a place which I know for a fact had strong 4G signal, and it’s not the first time this has happened (although before it had always been for less urgent situations). I tried the usual: airplane mode on and off, data on and off, etc. Ended up fully restarting the phone, which took about 6-7 minutes (from shutdown to full 4G and being able to call), which is more or less how long my Blackberry Q10 from 2013 took. I cannot trust SFOS anymore for emergencies, so I will be relaying it to a second, more experimental phone. I was quite sad to see that this OS, after almost 10 years in development, is still not ready for daily use. I know some people don’t have any issues, but the main thing here is that if some do have severe issues and others don’t, it means that it’s not a ready, mature OS. The persistency in some of these issues throughout system updates is also surprising (there are some bugs present in the latest version that were also there in the first Xperia 10 II release). I’m not fully giving up on SFOS and will come back to it in a while, but it’s Android for now, sadly. Then people wonder why there’s a duopoly. I’m not asking for much, I don’t need fancy apps, but the fact I can’t call in an emergency makes a TELEPHONE device completely useless. I’d rather carry a dumbphone, I know that won’t let me down in an emergency.
So long and thanks for all the fish, Jolla!
