i am a sailfish user since the beginning. First i had the Jolla 1, then the Intex Aquafish and was very happy about those phones. Now i bought a Xperia X II and can’t believe how many bugs it has. I want to describe a few for you all and hope somebody, hopefully Jolla itself, helps out with them:
1.- Wifi: only the 5 Ghz band is working. I tested the phone for a few weeks with the Android 10 and 11 that it came with. There was no problem with the 2,4 Ghz band.
2.- Fingerprint: I added 5 fingerprints and they are getting deleted from time to time. I have no idea why, i can’t replicate the behavior. They appear again after some time, but that makes that function pretty useless. Please fix Jolla.
3.- App-Shop: I can’t find many of the apps that i found on Jolla 1 and Intex Aquafish. I can understand that the 64bit support is responsible for that, but right now the native apps lack a lot of core functions. Examples: the weather app “MeeCast” is not working anymore, also there is no app for making the sound output louder. The most important app for me was “Lighthouse”, which also doesn’t work anymore and now i have to close unwanted apps in the console. That is not comfortable. Also 90% of the games and other apps are missing. Will there be a change in the future?
4.- GPS: GPS is not working at all. The only app that can use it from time to time is the “GPSInfo” app, which does not much more than just giving a few informations. GPS did work properly on Android on the same phone. I need it especially for the Android e-scooter-apps that can’t display a map without this function. Some don’t work at all without it. Will there be a fix? This problem exists since a long time. Please Jolla, it is a core function of nowadays phones.
5.- Ram Usage: The Jolla 1 had 1 GB of ram and used about 300 MB after booting, The Intex Aquafish had 2 GB of Ram and used about the same like the Jolla 1 after boot. Now the Xperia X II has 3 GB of Ram, but uses about 2 GB after booting. WHAT THE …? Apps get closed constantly when i open more than one. This is not okay Jolla, please optimize this.
6.- Responsiveness: Since Ram is at its max almost all the time, the phone is not very responsive. This is easily to see when i swipe down and touch the keylock to switch off the display. It takes about 1 or 2 seconds until the display gets black. I expected to get a faster phone. In Android it was much faster.
7.- Touchscreen: the touchscreen is not working properly. If i touch something in the four corners of the display, i often have to touch them multiple times, because it doesn’t recognize my input. That did not happen in Android before installing Sailfish.
8.- Android App Cache: I can’t delete the app cache of Android apps. If i click on “delete cache” or “delete data”, nothing happens.
9.- Downloads bigger than about 2 GB: I can’t download apps from the Google Play Store that are bigger than about 2 GB. It just stops downloading at some point.
Can we expect to see updates to these bugs? I have the phone for multiple months now and there was no update yet. But these are big bugs that should be fixed immediately.
