I was really pleased to finally be able to upgrade a couple of weeks ago now, but I’ve noticed several issues so far and wondered if others had / they are being addressed by the Fairphone team:
- My FP2 won’t shut down - it only reboots when I select this from the menu so the only way to turn it off is to pull the battery out
- If the battery died before with all previous versions of OS I could plug in and turn on the phone. Now I have to wait until there is a bit if charge in there then unplug, boot up the phone and plug back in to continue charging.
- The Wi-Fi won’t always reconnect automatically when I get home. It show’s different WiFi networks from a particular point in the day “frozen” there. Even turning the WiFi on and off doesn’t help, only rebooting the phone does.
- I’ve been getting really mixed results with the battery saver option. In the past I have always turned on overnight, never really being sure if it was actually saving power. I hoped this would be clearer that it was working on the new software. Instead there’s been times were the phone has dropped 30-40% charge overnight.
Sorry to be negative, but what has this new OS actually brought us in benefits?
