Just before going to bed yesterday, I quickly installed the mentioned update, then turned off the Fairphone and connected it to the charger, battery level was at about 60%. This morning I was shocked to find that the battery level is only at 45%.
The power saving mode icon is grayed out and cannot be selected.
I’ve only had the Fairphone for four and a half months and have never had any charging issues in that time. Since the problem first appeared right after the update last night, I wonder if there might be a connection?
Currently, I can only use the Fairphone when it’s plugged into the charger, and even then it loses battery power faster than it charges. So as a mobile device it is unusable at the moment.
like written above? nothing about android11 is mentioned in the thread starter post. anyhow i forgot that fp3 was still on and11 but i remember now too sad that technical posts lack essential and elementary things.
Okay, I have solved the problem. I removed the battery and put it back in, now it charges reasonably again.
Actually, it’s a little bit a shame that I didn’t try this first, since I suspected a software error due to the update. But I still have to get used to the fact that you can take apart everything with Fairphone
The timing with the update was probably just coincidental.
It seems like something went horribly wrong for me. Since this update (and never before) my FP3 constantly loses, and then reestablishes, the connection to the mobile net. This stops when I disable 4G and only use “automatic 3G/2G”. This effectively shuts me out of mobile internet, as 3G was shut down in Germany.
I experience the same problem. When I manually select a 4G network, I can restore a 4G connection, but usually it switches back to Edge after a few minutes. I restarted the phone without the affected SIM card and then re-inserted it, but the problem persists.
Installed this update 2 days ago, so far no problems until now. Usually when installing an update I use a very safe routine. First step shutdown the FP not just restart the phone. Second step start the FP and install the update. Follow the informations given while of the update process. Wait untill the message “update successfully done” apears. Last step shutdown the FP again. Doing it this way all updates within the last 2 years had been without any curios behaviours as sometimes mentioned in this forum. Just the well known problems of some updates, for example brightness of the display occured. This problems had allways been fixed by FP with additional updates very soon after the problems had been recognized. But there never happened any big other things. So at all I am very satisfied with the FP3. I hope the FP3 will be supported with updates within the next years, to enable the usability of this Mobile Phone for a long time. Expecting this was one of the main reasons to buy a FP.
