Yes, I don't disagree with that. More RAM and a more standard compliant screen is always nice. I tend to believe that build quality is not important for many people so I guess that also can be sacrificed for the first phone they make.

I mean a thinkpad cost a lot more for the same amount of ram and the same speed of same generation processor than a consumer market asus. I believe a first phone can use cheaper less reliable high spec parts rather than expensive reliable low-spec parts. It's not like most consumers these days expect their phones to last 5 years anyway.

Not so sure about local laws regarding warranty though.

I don't agree here.
I think a lot of potential Jolla customers are former Nokia users, with Nokia being famous for quite good build quality (while at the same time having low specs).

I could imagine that especially for a new company with a new OS and all, it's quite important for the first impression to have a decent quality - more than having the best specifications. Especially with an OS that "should" be quite efficient also on low spec hardware.

Otherwise Sailfish will soon get the image of "that cheap Android replacement for cheap China phones"...

So if I were Jolla, I'd try to get decent build quality rather than high end specs for the money I have to pay for the hardware.

Since specs are now clear, let's hope build quality really IS good...

I agree with Casanunda on this one. I think that build quality in case of this specific company and this specific OS is *very important*.

Like Casanunda said, many (most?) potential Jolla customers will be existing/former Nokia phone users, especially the N9 which offered really high build quality. The OS itself is also meant to be "unlike" (the rest), offering features like full openness and being a direct Harmattan follow-up, so it doesn't seem to be a product for 'every kid' but rather for more serious users.

Also, it is usually the very first model that gets the most publicity, so it is in Jolla's best interest to make a good impression with a phone of PROPER quality. I don't mean Vertu-quality, just something that won't disapoint anyone.

I'm afraid, though, that the screen will remain the phone's weakest point, and a subject of many complaints.

It doesn't have to work on the moon or, in an atomic reactor or other places with the same amount of radiation:) It does not need thinkpad quality either I think.

N9 was not really that good quality I think as I had to have my touch screen replaced and my micro usb is lose so I can only charge it with one of my chargers. Think that level is sufficient for them. I'd say that is mid to low range quality, not very poor, but not very good either. Haven't tried dropping it from 1,8 meter landing on a hard floor, but that is a good test for whether it's good quality or not(except that you might discover the damage only months later).

I gave my N97 mini to my sister and it still works even if I lost that from high height some times. Been less trouble with that than my N9.
