Jolla Sailfish Phone Taking Smartphones To All New Level
Total Articles: 99
Jolla – a Finnish company started sailing in India with its first phone Jolla powered by Sailfish OS. With its uniqueness of Sailfish OS, Jolla has yet to decide its share in major Indian market. Though it has mediocre hardware relative with its price tag, only software has to decide its “Smooth Sail” in the Indian market. So let us check out, how this new Sail-fish can teach us latest moves.
DESIGN AND BUILD
The design also shows its uniqueness among the other phones, as this phone looks completely different in design. The phone looks like two halves attached to one another. One half the screen itself, while the other is removable back cover. Though back cover is made of polycarbonate, it is fingerprint resistant and scratch resistant.
This back cover is replaceable with other colors, Best thing here is that Jolla Phone knows that which back cover it has been joined with. Once the cover has been known to the Jolla (which is detected by the use of NFC), then software adapts itself with that particular back cover and also the matching theme also will be applied to it.
Jolla phone has very basic design, nothing much to praise about the design of outer body. We didn’t feel it comfortable in the hands also in the pocket with its sharp edges.
But the power button and volume rocker placed in the proper place and they easy to handle. Apart from these buttons, you won’t see any other physical or capacitive touch buttons. There is only one multi colored notification LED placed below the screen.
Jolla Mobile has a 4.5 inch IPS LCD qHD display with a resolution of 960 x 450 pixels. The screen looks bright and color reproduction is very good. The touch sensitivity is very impressive, very smooth and it has 5 point multi touch. Also the touch screen is protected by Corning’s Gorilla glass.
The Jolla Sail Fish OS is a Linux based operating system based on MeeGo operating system. This MeeGo operating system released jointly by Nokia and Intel 4 years back.
The phone is fully controlled by the touch gestures. Here each swipe is a different function depending on its direction.
Swipe from left to right --- Acts as task switcher/ multi-tasking navigator, the current running will be minimized and takes you to the grid of running apps. Here you can jump from one to other app or exit from those.
Swipe from bottom to top --- which brings you the notification bar.
Double tapping anywhere on the screen --- wakes up the phone from sleep.
Jolla is open source, so anybody can modify for their new devices. Best part of Sailfish is support for Android apps.
But while running the android apps, the device isn’t smooth as it was. Sometimes the applications did crash.
The Jolla smart phone powered by Qualcomm’s snapdragon 400 dual core processor (Krait 200) clocked at 1.4 GHz with Quad core Adreno 305 graphics processor unit. With only 1 Giga byte RAM, the mobile runs pretty smooth, as the operating system is light in processing.
The phone has 16 GB of internal storage, in which users get 13.8 GB for apps and storage. Anyways phone also has an external microSD card support.

It has LTE (4G) support in few countries only. It supports the WiFi b/g/n, GPS with GLONASS and Bluetooth v4.0. Here NFC also present but only to pair with back cover to adapt the UI scheme.
Main 8 MegaPixel Autofocus camera with LED flash captures images with just decent quality. It can capture videos with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. The camera app is very simple to use, as there are only a handful intuitive options for the user to choose. A point to worth mentioning is that, it does not have HDR (High Dynamic Range mode) or Panorama.
In daylight the 8 MP shooter performance is very good, as the colors look very natural, but in low light conditions it has a very poor performance. The pictures in low light are noisy and details are unclear.
The Removable 2100 mAh Li-ion battery gives only an average backup. Jolla says it gives 10 hours of talk time on 3G. But in our usage the device performance was not that impressive, after playing 2 hours of games the battery drained and reached almost its limit. So battery life is a thing to worry about.
For those who want their phone to adapt according to their personal usage, this Jolla Sailfish is would be excellent choice for them. Though it takes some time to get used to this new operating system, it has its own uniqueness to offer the user. Priced a little higher for its hardware, it is worth using the sailfish OS at a price tag of Rs 16,499.
