UNLIKE THE ORDINARY

Jolla is powered by Sailfish OS, a new independent mobile operating system. Navigate effortlessly with the gesture-based user interface and load the phone with top Android apps.

Easier, faster, smarter

You have probably changed phones before. And come to realize nothing really changed. With Jolla it’s the opposite. We believe what Jolla offers is truly new, fascinating and valuable to you. Like the fully gesture-based Sailfish OS. Don’t be afraid if for the first minutes, it seems radical and different. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll see why. You’ll see that things can be done much smarter – with an effortless user interface that is simply easier and faster.

The journey is just beginning

Our journey together with our customers and the community is just beginning. Jolla is now in a different place from what it will be in a month. The super easy over-the-air updates ensure you always get the latest and best experience. You don't need to connect your Jolla to a computer to update it and all your data stays intact. The world and peoples’ needs are continuously evolving– and so will Jolla.

Effortless gesture-based experience

Jolla introduces smart use of gestures like swipes, pulls, flicks and taps. Gestures help you be more effective as you interact with your Jolla and perform day to day tasks naturally. It's quick and easy to use with one hand. Instead of awkwardly reaching for the home key, just swipe from either edge to return home.

Live multitasking

Jolla is the only smartphone that shows all your running apps, in a single view. You can even interact with your apps from the home view, without opening and closing them. Just swipe an app cover to trigger a shortcut. With app shortcuts you can switch music tracks, compose a new message, open a new browser window and much more – doing what you want instantly without switching apps. Sailfish OS takes multitasking on a smartphone to a whole new level.

The Other Half

Unlike ordinary phone covers, The Other Half is a smart cover with substance. When attached, The Other Half instantly personalizes your Jolla with unique visuals and tones on the inside, matching its new distinct appearance on the outside. The Other Half concept is an innovation platform full of promise. Today, you can match your ambience with The Other Half Keira Black, Aloe or Poppy Red (white cover included, others sold separately). Tomorrow, you can enjoy new The Other Half creations by us, our partners and the community.

Android and Sailfish OS apps

Jolla Store offers native Sailfish OS apps and you can easily access hundreds of thousands of Android apps via Aptoide, Yandex Store and other Android marketplaces. Jolla brings you the best of both worlds – the super intuitive Sailfish OS apps and the power to run Android apps.

Make it yours

We give you full control over what apps and services are on your Jolla. When you power up for the first time, the Start-Up Wizard and Tutorial guide you through the main gestures, and ask which apps and services you actually want. Jolla then configures itself accordingly – we don't push any pre-loaded apps or services. That way, your privacy is better respected and you’ll only get updates for what you actually use.

Do it together

There are two ways to develop things: behind closed doors or in the real world. We chose to take Jolla out to the real world. Why? Because, we want to co-create with real people and situations to develop it together with you, and for you. Sailfish OS is always in the making. It evolves every day. We want to take Jolla further with people who find innovating important. Like you who appreciate the values Jolla stands for. So welcome onboard and shape Jolla with us.



Customer Questions & Answers

I'm probably not the target market for this phone, I'm not a programmer and have no idea how to handle complex computer problems, I can google up solutions to most problems but that's about it. Having said that, I did own the N770 maemo tablet from Nokia, which was a fun toy for those times.

So I was expecting this phone to be way too beta for me, and I was expecting to (A) have to keep my iPhone as a 'real' phone backup, and (B) have to run mostly the android apps. After around a week my iphone went into a drawer and was forgotten, after a month or so the Android emulating part of the software was removed.

I found almost all my basic app needs were met by real, native Sailfish apps. Spotify, whatsapp, facebook, ebook reader, podcast player, gps run tracker etc. Not only that though, but also the OS is just so far ahead of iOS and android, once I got used to it it was impossible to go back. There are a lot of gestures and shortcuts that feel strange at first, but after they settle in the muscle memory going back to other mobile OSs was painful. Everything takes a little longer to do in Android and iOS, and also everything requires more specificity, selecting options in these OSs requires you to touch them directly, but in Sailfish you quickly get used to touching anywhere in the screen and using the pulley menus to select options.

It's only a matter of time before some of these features are stolen by Apple or Google (as an example, to lock the screen rotation in iOS requires you to double tap the homescreen button, select the radio button for screen locking and then return to where you where with another button press, but in sailfish you just hold the screen as you rotate the phone, that's genius).

After using this phone as my daily driver for a few days now, I thought I'd share my impressions. I started off running Sailfish on my Nexus 5 under MultiRom Manager, but it was an alpha port and there was quite a bit that didn't work, so I took the plunge and got a Jolla Phone to try it out properly.

Overall I'd say that Sailfish shows great promise; the navigation and presentation are well worked out, and Android feels a bit clumsy in comparison. Once you've got used to it, the o/s is very easy to use and the aesthetics are pleasing. The pulley menus are great and work really well, so much so that I'm surprised nobody's thought of them before. Battery life seems very good – much better than the Nexus 5. The specs of the phone say it will support up to 32GB SDHC micro SD, but I took a 64GB SDXC straight out of an Android phone and put it into the Jolla, and it works fine. Double tap to wake is very useful. Music player will play lossless formats (flac in my case) and the sound quality through phones is fine. Speaker sound is a bit feeble though. Software updates are frequent – approx once a month.

Another thing worth mentioning is that the Jolla community seems very friendly and supportive.

So what are the downsides? Well, the hardware is low-spec by Android standards. The display isn't even 720p, and it shows sometimes. Processing power is not great, and there's noticeable lag particularly in the Sailfish browser – it's no powerhouse and gamers will probably want to consider that in deciding whether to go for this phone.

And then there's the matter of apps. Sailfish is a young o/s and at the moment it suffers from a paucity of native apps – you'll almost certainly want to install Android support so you can download and use Android apps.

I have become a Jolla phone owner and user as part of my overall strategy to completely de-google my life. My previous phone, being the Nexus 4 was, frankly a phenomenal phone, especially considering how much it cost. Indeed, one of the best parts of the phone was the aftermarket rom support; I honestly lost count of how many different flavours of Android I tried, all of which had their merits. As well as Android roms, I also tested Firefox OS, Ubuntu and Sailfish OS, the latter being what this phone runs. It was my experience running a ported version of Sailfish OS on my old Nexus that influenced my decision to make this purchase.

Firstly, the phone itself is of very good quality; it looks and feels amazing to hold, with the physical buttons being in the “right” place, as well as the USB and 3.5mm headphone jack both being at the top which I prefer. The phone has a user-replaceable battery and it comes with a white “The Other Half”, which is essentially the back of the phone with a built-in NFC chip containing a new Ambience (more on that later). It feels neither heavy nor light in hand, nor does it feel too large or too small.

Next, the OS. Having had the chance to play with Sailfish on my last phone, the new way of using this phone wasn't as much of a shock to me as clearly it has been to some other reviewers. In this persons humble opinion, once the basic gestures have been learned, they very quickly become second nature and indeed, after booting up my tablet (that currently is still running Android) after having played with the phone for a few hours, I found myself getting frustrated with how cumbersome Android actually is compared to Sailfish.
