That is your opinion, but I disagree. The last version of bluez4 was
released in 2012. It is very old technology which is not updated for new
versions of the bluetooth standard. With regard to bluez5 sailfishos is
pretty close to the upstream releases which I think is good. I am
willing to spent some time on fixing problems that exist in closed to
upstream versions of packages. I don't like to fix problems that might
have been fixed in upstream packages already.

Other packages in sailfishos are quite outdated. e.g. pulseaudio
upstream is version 11.x and sailfishos is on version8.x. Which works
for most cases, but I would like to have a more recent version.

If you want to save money of course sailfish X is not the way to go. You
have the phone with a running operating system (android) and you have to
spend some more euros to get a sailfish license. What is cheaper is
quite obvious.

Your free time is probably the most expensive thing here and if you
don't enjoy digging into problems you should not use your free time for it.
