I think 5-6 years ago my N900 was been replaced by me for Indian Jolla phone. At this time I clearly saw - Maemo on previous phone better, but SFOS jung and will be better.
I wasn’t right… Why?
It was 5-6 years ago. I wait when all feature and settings from Maemo will move to SFOS.
I had list of features, what very-very-very important for phone, but SFOS hadn’t.
Now - all features, what I wait still in this list.
I want a lot of? No…
- Alarm volum in settings. (Not in patches from side developers, what need remove and install after each update.)
- Adjustable transparent of app menu. (Not in patches from side developers, what need remove and install after each update.)
- Scrolling app meny row by row instead of screen by screen. (Not in patches from side developers, what need remove and install after each update.)
4*) Setuped lockscreen - positions, what info I need etc. (Not in patches from side developers, what need remove and install after each update.)
And SFOS know abot patchmanager, can see, what patches most downloaded. It means SFOS know, what people need for comfortable using.
Most downloadeable patch is adjusting volume for alarm, because in stock SFOS have 100% volum and it wake up 2-3 streets around.
And why SFOS can’t add this to configuration “from the box”???
Ok, company have a lot of impruvements for catching up Android. But still worst, than Maemo 10 years ago.
Ok, I like, when OS can be modified and setuped for me, but I don’t like the same actions after each update. I have OpenSuse, Debian OSes at home, but after each update I don’t require a lot af actions just continue working/playing games/surfing the Internet. Comfortable? Comfortable.
What about I: I about comfort. In first all people require comfort. But SFOS can’t give it to people((((
Hire 1 person, who one per week will be see in store manager what people most download and apply 1 feature per week. Perfect? Perfect?
Would SFOS be better then Maemo? Definitely yes. But we have to admit that SFOS is not doing exactly what is expected of it now. Yes, there are many expectations, but take the n900 and see how it is better. How many settings does it have?
To be honest, I got tired of editing the lipstick file for a year, in which you need to add the name of the chat application so that it can beep when a message is received. The next version of SFOS will require the installation of OS from 0, and therefore it will require a lot of actions to resume using the phone. Of course, you will ask if I want this headache for myself, when in the end I will get the same OS, which will still be worse than on the n900, but will support Android applications, even though gesture control is more convenient, but that’s it not worth it. As a result, it will be the same operating system, with the same shortcomings. It’s okay for a year, okay for 2, but when the OS after 5-6 years does not meet the same minimum requirements for a mobile OS, it makes sense to continue using it, and even with reinstalling the entire system, it’s a so-so idea.
Sad but true.
