Have we agreed that is a wish? There are so many people thinking otherwise that you could also include a second, alternating option “Preinstall GAPPS”.
Would you mind to factor the GAPPS out in a seperate wish along the lines: Provide a supported OS without Google Apps?
Similary, thanks for including my idea about the standard launcher, but i would not think of it as a wish, more a point to discuss and i have learned many people like the Fairphone launcher. So, i personally would not include that here.
Although many people are complaining about some features, this is also the general feeling I get: Overall Fairphone has done a good job in juggling expectations from existing users, making the phone appealing to future users, while staying true to its original mission.
The question mark at the battery specs is there because the wish was a better battery lifetime and we don’t yet know how much power the FP2 needs. So even with a better battery it might have a shorter runtime.
Your link doesn’t specify weather the Gorilla Glass prevents smears, or did I miss something?
About the orientation: It seems to me that the front-facing camera is much more noticeable than with the FP1, so I guess it will be easier to know if you’re holding the FP2 the right way up, but I guess we’ll only know once we’ve help one in our hands.
I only included wishes from the wishlist (first post, I didn’t read the whole discussion) and the polls. If you find me a link I might include that wish.
About OS updates: I’m really confident too that updates will be provided with the FP2 but I’ll wait for an official announcement.
About preinstalled Apps: They could include make preinstalled apps that not everybody needs user apps, so one wouldn’t need root.
Yes Google Apps will be preinstalled, but let’s see how easy it will be to install a google-free OS.
This still sounds like a fact, maybe it can be formulated as a wish that can be fulfilled or rejected ;-).
Wish: Give users a choice to use a fully supported Android Version without Google Apps and services (possibly as Alternative)
I don’t know whether that is enough. In practice FP1 also has the Fairphone logo on the top left and the buttons on the bottom. That should be much more obvious than the front facing camera. I think it’s more about whether you can feel a difference the moment you pick it up.
You have a point. I was just guessing, that the front camera would be recognizable even in the dark, whereas the FP1 looks the same on top and bottom in the dark. I replaced the check with a question mark and let the future decide on that point.
I wouldn’t say they have gone further than the community wished. A bigger phone is not necessary “going further” than the 4,48 average which was (averagely) preferred. I noticed a lot of complains about the phone being too big, but the way you present it, it sounds like “bigger is always better”
That’s the last thing I wanted to do. Do you think “overshoot” fits better than “going further”? (that’s how dict.cc’s translation for “Über’s Ziel hinausschießen” which is the german phrase I was thinking about.)
PS: The symbols are not counted as “fulfilled wishes” in the stats, but I think it would be a bit harsh to count them as “unfulfilled wishes”.
If you look at the poll the announced screen size is between options 3 and 4 and option 3 is the second-most chosen option, so it’s not like the FP2 has a size that nobody wished for.
I don’t really know. Wouldn’t a “neutral” symbol be better? It’s not something “we” asked not to do, but it’s also not the thing we did ask for.
Since my German is a bit rusty (to put it mildly), I’m not going to try and give an other translation of “Über’s Ziel hinausschießen”
