the first one I ordered from India (Intex AquaFish) - did a research if it
would work in EU, and had to pay the custom tax - all together it was like
150-160€. My wife got it after she broke her N9, because the color is very
nice ;-). The OS was preinstalled there.
End of last year I bought Sony Xperia X and installed an image by myself -
total cost around 300 for phone and 50 for image. The Jolla image was
important, so that I may get the android support. 
There are few things I dislike, or want to have fixed before I use it as
primary device, but I don't have the time to work on them. One major point
is BT (bluetooth) and PA (pulseaudio) and the gui support for both.
