Following on from recent news, we have found a nice little demo (in Finnish) of the new Jolla handset which we hope you enjoy!
Changing the wallpaper (or is that the screensaver) from the lck screen itself. Pretty neat!
new feature in the video is the changing locked screen wallpaper from lock screen.
He not only changes the wallpaper, but the theme of the phone at the same time. The wallpaper he chose had the text “hiljainen”, meaning “silent” mode. So I would guess you can define quite a few features or settings to change with each wallpaper. Pretty handy in my mind.
Awesome. These demos sertainly negate any issues I had with the screen resolution. I’m sold to the fact that the user experience and the Sailfish OS will work magic.
Santa, where are you!?!? 🙂
If you had issues with the resolution please tell us what resolution and size is your PC’s monitor. Are you having major issues with it too?
Do you hold your phone as far away as your monitor is?
I sit about 1m away from my monitor and 0.5m distance when holding phone.
Let’s assume that the monitor is viewed from the distance which is double the distance which you look at your phone. What finally matters is the the angle formed by your eye and two adjacent pixels on the screen. Then the angles are the same with an 18″ 1920 x 1080 pixel monitor screen and a 4.5″ 960 x 540 pixel phone screen. So, my conclusion is:
If your Full-HD monitor is larger than 18 inches, or if there are fewer 2880 x 1620 pixels on your 27″ monitor, and you don’t want to recharge your phone more often than now, you should start your personal “arms race with display pixels” by purchasing a Full-HD monitor which is SMALLER than 18″, or a 27″ monitor with more than 2880 x 1620 pixels.
Sorry, my recommendation is not for you Ukkooh, but for those who insist on getting more pixels on their phones 🙂
This is exactly what I’ve been trying to get people to understand. Thank you for joining my fight 🙂
Screen looks really beautiful =)
At first I thought there are some serious light bleeding in upperside of the display 😀 Looks nice though. I wonder if that blurring while scrolling is effect or weakness of the display…
Possibly also due to the camera recording the video not recording at high fps.
That “bleeding” is the pulley menu, that glare is the way to let the user know it´s there.
I think it’s an effect. The display can’t be that bad .. actually it looks quite good. I think I need to see it in my hands. Anyways, I will keep my preorder.
This doesn’t really demonstrate anything other than page transitions… which are superfluous eye candy fluff to me. How about demonstrating some core functionality
Totally agree with you. I hope they demonstrate sth more serious from the OS.
The one new thing I noticed is that we can close applications with a swipe down just like in Meego, and that’s a really good thing. With a 4.5″ screen, it might be inconvenient to do it with only one hand though, but still better than having to reach the multitask screen, long press, and then close applications with the top right cross as we have seen in all previous videos.
However, I don’t see any Low Power Mode when he locks the screen at the very end of the video. I hope the screen will be LPM capable though.
In general, I still think the transition effects when reducing applications or closing them are counterintuitive. This is a fade/blur effect, and I largely prefered the slide effect of the N9. It was much more convenient in my opinion.
that slide effect is owned by MS and hence jolla cannt use it?
Why would it be owned by Microsoft? Nokia licenced their patents non-exclusively to Microsoft if it was ever a Nokia patent in the first place. I would hope it wasn’t a patented gesture.
Nothing to do with any kind of patent. BB10 uses that side effect. The fade/vanish effect is to get a full glance at the next screen before changing the page. You can check your indicators, or your event without changing the current page.

galaxy mega 6.3 has 233 ppi lower, that is lower than 244 jolla, i have seen the mega 6.3, the screen is good enough.
Cделайте поддержку nokia n9 пожалуйста!!!!!!!!!))))))))) а то люди преданные к данной оси ждут чтото нового!Я конечно понимаю что мы её уже перелопатели сами как могли и подогнали под себя (кто хотел) вот именно поэтому очень прошу сделайте обновление под N9 пуст оно будет не официальное но будет или официальное)))
I hope CLOSING an application means shutting it down. I don’t like any backgrounded sh*t that I have no control over.
