On small touch displays you should never use QtWidgets (the graphical
parts), that is a given. It doesn't matter if it's Symbian, Meego,
Blackberry or Sailfish, it's all QML. When I write an app I first make it
use raw QML/QtQuick on my desktop and then I port it to whatever additional
QML based toolkit is available, for Sailfish it's called Silica (
https://sailfishos.org/sailfish-silica/index.html  ).
