update to my post.
I found one interesting effect (“old” FW):
When I had my FP2 switched on and connected to the USB port of my laptop, switching from “charging mode” to
to one of MTP || PTP (probably PTP) changed it to "not charging"
Sorry, I don’t have the mode, because when I tried to reproduce I wasn’t able to do so. So this only happened once so far.
Then I tried more systematic on the “rolling reset” issue: (All with the FP2 connected to my Win 10 laptop)
- FP2 switched on; connecting to USB
MTP – charging
PTP – still charging
charging – still charging
MTP – still charging
Off (while in MTP mode) -> rolling reset
Same ending in PTP
Off (as PTP) -> rolling reset
On my first try with the new FW 1.2.8 it seemed in one case to be more picky. Same cable, same USB port (the USB port of my Fritzbox, because it needs standby current anyway,) Here it seems to barely load while switched on, instead the FP2 got warm (something warmer than body temperature, not hot) This had been better before. (Or it depends on some other factor which I didn’t recognise so far)
Just to spell it out: I’m happy with my FP2, despite these problems. (Other here say it’s a show stopper)
I didn’t expect it to be perfect. I surely hope that FW updates fix some of the drawbacks.
But I like it nevertheless. I got what I wanted; I wanted that smartphone also as a “political statement” (electronics can be done better); at the same time the decision “feels” correct and I’m partly amazed of how (and how often and for what purposes) I use it.
I had several (smaller) decisions to buy stuff, between the pre-order of my FP2 and now. (no electronic gadgets)
There my “requirement analysis” seemed to have been incomplete and I had been somewhat disappointed. The FP2 was one of the bigger decisions done right from my POV.
