I have an FP2 (bought in December 2018) and I am facing the same issue, that is, the screen freezes when making or receiving call (not always).
I have a FP2 with a very annoying issue. I’ve tried different things over the last couple of months, including trying a few offered solutions for similar issue’s I’ve found on this forum.
The issue I’m experiencing is a total screen / phone freeze in +/-50% of the cases at the moment of an incoming call. Most of the times it rings 1-2 times and then freezes. The only way out is a reboot by pressing the power button >30sec. The issue is independent of sim-cards, I have two installed a…
Since that thread is closed and no solution is posted there, I am opening a new one.
In addition to that issue, the screen also always freezes when the alarm app goes off. It also freezes once in a while randomly while browsing and while using the messaging app.
Any help is appreciated.
Please check Settings > Storage and let us know how full your phone storage is. Often such freezes result from a crammed storage.
Thanks for the reply!
I am using only 5.27 out of 29 GB.
I think I might be experiencing the same issue on LineageOS 17.1. Are you on LineageOS or official Fairphone OS?
My storage: 14.33 GB used of 32.00 GB.
Here are a few posts from the “Lineage 17.1 - FP2” thread. No solution yet, but might be related?
Hi community !
I’ve installed LOS 17.1-20200828 and open_gapps-arm-10.0-pico-20200822, but some apps crashes frequently. E.g. Farm Heros didn’t respond after a while and shows a black screen.
Another problem is a flickering of parts (icons, bars, …) of the screen within of some apps, when the CPU load is high. It disapear, if you press the home button and you switch over to another app.
Does anyone knows, what’s the reason for this problems ?
I haven’t had the “not connected” issue for the last week either, but it does seem to be random for me too.
I have had another issue though. When the phone rings, sometimes (maybe half the time?) the screen freezes and I can’t pick up. After a minute or so, I get a message saying that “Phone isn’t responding”, then I can “Close App” and the phone is back to normal. Does anyone else have this?
Thanks for the message.
I’m using the standard dialer (com.android.dialer). I’ve also experienced similar frozen screens in some apps, specifically I remember it happening while using the WhatsApp and Wikipedia apps (maybe once/twice a week?). Sometimes I’ll be scrolling through something and the screen will start to stutter, with the left half of the screen lagging behind by a fraction of a second. Most of the time it’s fine, but sometimes the phone will freeze. Next time I have another camer…
I am on the Fairphone Open OS.
The issues seem related but I am not sure they are the same. For me, the UI itself freezes, and I am unable to close the app (browser, Phone app). The phone becomes very slow and unresponsive. After a while, a message saying UI (or app) is not responding pops up and asks me to either close the UI (or app) or wait. Even when I click on close (this takes time as the screen is not responsive), the phone does not get back to normal. I have to reboot for the phone to behave normally. This means I need to reboot regularly for the phone to function.
For you, it seems you are able to close the app without any problem and just doing this seems to work.
Other than the main issue above, I also have a minor issue with my phone. Once in a while, some parts of the screen become pixelated. This lasts for a few seconds after which the screen becomes normal. This issue does not impact my daily use of the phone but can be related to the main issue.
