I just hopped onto this thread and read only a handful of posts, but is there any possibiliy to get access to the beta software? It cant be worse than my FP4.TP1X.079 image!!!
I dont want to wait anymore an Im considering flipping my phone and getting a Pixel with GrapheneOS… I was here for the first 5G bug, I coped with the problem that NO EFFING PERSON can understand me with traditional phone calls, when Im not using my Sony In-Ears, my second pair of Fairphone Earbuds was broken weeks after I got a replacement from you (I didnt bother to get them repaired!), my frontcamera got black dots in the image (no it was no dirt. I checked and even scratched the lens before replacing it. It was the sensor) my screen glitched the F out mid this year and was broken (not ghostinput!), I had severe problems with the ghost inputs in July/August (and got a new screen from you guys, which changed nothing).
And now I cant use my phone for 60 min straight, because it eighther freezes up in horizontal mode, craps itself when I use PiP mode (presumely) and randomly reboots without any input.
When it freezes up it stays unlocked the whole time, the assumed “PiP-bug” (thats how I call it) renders a black screen. When I unlock my device the backlight turns on and the LCD part stays black. And only god knows why the reboots happen.
To be clear: Your customer support is helpful and very nice, but at some point I didnt even bother to tell them all that, because they cant fix it and its a waste of their and my time.
And now I read the update comes around christmas?
Ill switch back to my Pixel 3 something with /E/Os and I dont know if Ill bother to change back after the update.
Im not really angry, Im annoyed. Updates take forever (Ok, fair, you have small dev groups) and are buggy/unsuable. Why cant you offer quick bugfix images here? This is a million times faster than the OTA carrier update. Why is FP4 not getting any upgradepath? Oled Display? Better camera? Nothing? Maybe a later release for FP5 would have given more resources to FP4 development?
I hope that all reaches you as critique and not as internet-hate, because criticism is justified when I have to swap my sim, if I am expecting a really important call!
I love the idea of fairphone and I accept some drawbacks, but not a complete halt.
Contact me for any further questions, have a nice week
