Hi all, I tried to teardown the fp3+ due the known issue with focus and, imho, the bad quality of the photo and I see that code on my module is quite different, probably is just a progressive number of the part?
I guess, that’s correct. It seems to be a kind of serial no.
The constant part of the number, at least in this forum seems to be “CT302”. The rest of the number differs. In the other thread you find besides the number mentiones a picture of a new module by the user @Lidwien , that shows a different number.
So, I wouldn’t focus on that number.
And I haven’t heard from Fairphone, that they have asked for that number when someone was reporting problems. This makes it sem rather unlikely to me, that problems are connected to a certain batch of modules. It’s rather a software issue, in my opinion.
I didn’t take a picture of my new Camera+ Module to confirm any numbers but I agree with the fact that the picture quality is not satisfying and even worse the with the normal FP3 module. More noise in general and clearly visible noise artifacts in the upper left and right corner.
A link to the “it is a know issue” would be interesting.
Just for the sake of completeness. I’m on /e/ Android 10 using the most recent Open Camera app.
I also encountered the focus issue once with the Open Camera app installed via F-Droid. The /e/ stock version of it didn’t have that issue. Reinstalling the F-Droid version solved it for me. This was when I was still on Android 9 /e/.
