I have the same problem
Oh don’be scared. Here you find mostly people who had issues with phone. My blue cover is not broken (and I opened FP2 several times), the display flickers (not so much) only with low brightness, I don’have found any incompatible app and I’ve never experienced a reboot…so some FP2 work well indeed
Particularly if you experience issues I’d strongly recommend to update, as the updates are supposed to fix issues!
I bought two units which work without problems apart from a little flickering at low brightness. No reboots, no bluetooth errors, no broken covers (black matte and black translucent) or anything. All apps run as intended. OS is FP Open OS.
I bought my phone with the solid light blue back, but soon decided I wanted a transparent one. The only one available was the translucent blue one. I’ve had loads of problems with the phone and had to remove the battery loads of times. The back of the case developed cracks within weeks. Luckily I have the solid blue one which seems problem free. The spare case wasn’t cheap though but I’m more concerned to get the phone working probably before sorting the case out.

Request #104887, 17 days ago… no answer yet.
EDIT : i had an answer today!
I had to wait 3 weeks and 2 days until today to get an answer. So please be patient.
I hope they will handle the cover issues faster now.
I’ve not had exactly the same issue, but the rubber around the volume control is coming away. I raised request #102233 about it in April but haven’t heard anything yet.
Yes I do! For some reason my search didn’t bring that up. That’s exactly what’s happened to my case though, and it’s getting worse.
I’m trying to submit a question to Support, but form is not working (not in my daily-use Firefox, nor in a pristine Chromium). Submitting the form causes a refresh, no confirmation is displayed and the request is not showing up in my “Activity” neither.
Is there another way to contact Support?
Do you know that you can’t use your account which you use for this forum.
You have to make up a new account for Support.
Perhaps this is your bottle-neck.
I don’t understand your message very well (English is my second language).
I do have an account on the forum and another on Fairphone’s Zendesk. The latter worked fine a month and a half ago, when I opened another ticket. Has something changed?
The account you made for sending another ticket to support should still work for sending a new ticket.
Yes, there is: you can give them a call. The number is at the bottom of https://fairphone.com/support (if you are in a mobile browser, you need to click “go to full site”).
It is not, that’s the problem,
I’ll try to reach them by e-mail first, but thanks for the heads-up.
Thank for your help, guys,
I cracked my cover, too , because I mostly opened my FP2 after reading this forum
However it is a small crack and I only found it after I was reading the forum once more
Cracks like thomaselsted in the headspeaker corner
And one running from the top mic to the camera
And two small cracks running parallel to the power button next to the Camera.
Still holding together.
First noticed the cracks around age 3-4 months, now 5 months old.
Trying to be careful but actually droped it 4-5 times from the bed/seat to the floor
