    The dual sim support is already done, it just isn't integrated in the build yet. I have been running dual sim for 3 months already. The added encryption is what i'm looking forward to.

        Better Android support is a must. As far as I remember, their emulator is still emulating v4.4 KitKat...

            They always promised a truly open-source operating system, and in fact based it heavily on open-source technology. Truth is, their OS was never as free as Android, and it's pretty certain it will stay this way. Why should I spend money on a system that is less free and has less features at the same time?

                So, what do you run on your smartphone? AOSP is getting more closed source/non-free on a day-by-day basis. Most SailfishOS functionallity that's non-free, is in fact open source; i.e., those components are plain text files in /usr/share. In the meanwhile, Jolla does actually release *more* source.

                It *is* the most viable, day-to-day usable smartphone operating system out there, which does not eat privacy for breakfast, and spits on your freedom.
