It's a holiday in The Netherlands today, so I'm a bit late with this, but Jolla has released another Sailfish update today, and it's a big one. The headline feature of the new update is that it enables the phone's 4G support for all countries. So, if you have 4G, your Jolla phone will now use it. The hardware was obviously available from the beginning, but it was never enabled until now.

Aside from 4G, this update packs a whole lot more - most importantly, it fixes a major annoyance with the Sailfish browser. The browser did not keep its tab contents in memory, so each time you switched to a tab, the page had to be reloaded. This has now been addressed, and tabs stay in memory properly.

These are just two of the many, many improvements, new features, and bug fixes in this update. Us Sailfish users know where to get it.

It did. It broke like that. Yes, the phone have fallen before. But since its quite humid, the whole screen cracked.. its not a small scratch you know. Its the typical iphone issue that i never thaught will happen with my Jolla phone.

Wait... Humidity cracked the glass? Eh... Are you sure?

Having spent many years replacing many iPhone screens, I can tell you that it doesn't take much to break them, but it does take *something*. I've heard of them breaking after falling from a bed onto a carpeted floor. Sure, that shouldn't break it, but it did. Perhaps it was weakened by being dropped before to the point where finger pressure broke it?
