it’s been a long time since my last post in here. Have had my FP2 since February and I’m still a proud owner. However the phone has become more and more annoying to me in the last weeks:
Apart from occasional screen freezes (which have been discussed on this forum already but I haven’t had the time and patience to mess with the suggested workarounds yet) my phone tends to reboot on slight bending pressure. Even when I just get the phone out of my jeans’ pockets or when I sit down with the phone in my pockets, the bending sometimes is enough to make the phone reboot. In General, this happens quite often when applying slight pressure to the middle area of the back of the phone, approximately the battery area. I can reproduce it by simply putting some pressure onto the phone with my hands.
Reboots sum up to ~2-10 times a day and I don’t have the feeling any of these reboots are caused by software issues. That’s why I started this new topic instead of adding my issue to another “Random Reboot” topic.
- latest Fairphone OS 1.8.1, it also happened with earlier versions
- I do also have the backcover issue where the rubber over the volume buttons stands off. Might be related to the reboot issue.
- Since the update to 1.8.1, I had two situations in which my battery was wrongfully shown to run on a very low percentage until I rebooted the phone at least once. Could be caused either by the update or by hardware?
Anyone else with this issue? Any ideas?
btw: I have not yet filed a support ticket, hoping that we can find a solution in here
