I was buying a Sony Xperia 10II after my Jolla Phone 1 is not longer supported.
So I was installing SailfishOS X (free version) on the phone and played around for 2 days without limits. Of course there have beena lot of problems in the 1st try.
After 2 days I installed a fresh and clean SailfischOS X again and started to configure my new phone with my preferred settings. (I didn’t restored a backup because during my tests before I got a lot of problems.)
Current status (22.05.2021):

- speed - very fast
- device accessabillity - very slippy
- is to long (1,5cm less would be better) so the handling with 1 Hand is unpossible!!!
- double-tab is not working (or I have done something wrong)
- low-power modus - working but have a to short time to show date and time (0,5 sec.)
Usabillity - terrible
Right now it is possible to use a lot of actions with one hand but the usage-killer is the menu with the applications. Right now all apps are locateted at the top of the screen.
Solution - I suggest to have a configurtion switch (Settings/Ambiente/Display) to choose between the apps icons start reference are located at the top of the screen or related to the bottom of the screen.
This is an advantege for 1-hand usage and also for handicaped accesebility (and I don’t have to install a lot of scrap apps to fill up the top area of the screen.)
Also I’m missing in the most new apps the possibility to use a shift-menu (top and/or buttom) because the developers are simply using buttons (e.g. start/stop) instead of a menu. (Is there a possibillity to have a config switch in the settings - Buttons/Menu/both.) That is negative for handicaped accesebility … as far as i know it is in the law (in Germany) defined that Software has to be considered for handicaped accesebility. (I know the reality is different but why not include that point … that’s a selling argument.)
So far till today - All-in-All I’m satisfier for a Software test version. For the release I’ awaiting more.
I’ll buy the OS for sure because it serves my requiremnets more that other operating systems.
