Jambo📱phone📱has📱arrived

My Jambo Phone has finally arrived after 2 months of waiting!
Got some pics to share.

Here’s the box it shipped in:

Contents of the box:

It comes preinstalled with few apps, like Petra Wallet, X, Backpack Wallet:

Here’s how it looks from the back. Got the gold version:

Here’s a side-by-side comparison with my Solana Saga (on the left):

Some first thoughts:

  • Total cost was 129$ (99$ + 30$ shipping).

  • After using IPhone/Saga on daily basis it feels like going back 10 years.

  • User experience is pretty bad - it often lags when swiping screens, switching apps, basically using the OS.

  • The build quality is meh, the backpanel is some plastic that feels cheap and not durable, so are the side buttons.

  • Screen is decent.

  • The cheaper materials make the phone pretty light though, which I like (Saga kinda feels like a brick in comparison).

All in all, the phone is not bad for the price.
It’s not really a crypto phone like Saga, just a regular Android with preinstalled stuff.

Wish Aptos would partner with Solana on Saga 2, but I don’t think that’ll happen :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m worried it might shatter into a thousand pieces if I accidentally drop it, assuming I even receive it at all
I’m reeeaaally friggin hoping there are some perks to ordering this beyond just having an overpriced paperweight

We’ll have to wait and see :slight_smile:
I got mine randomly, they didn’t email me they’re sending it.
Only received an email which basically said “yo, don’t worry, we’ll send it sooner or later”
