I also experienced enormous problems after an upgrade last apr-may and I didn’t have any particular app… maybe a wifi weaknesses. Something like this I never heard happened with other smartphones of friends or people I know. In other phones Apps or upgrades don’t cause the problems many FPers experience.
I also think there are problems with upgrades of the OS, so I usually don’t upgrade as soon as the message gets to my phone, probably risking in security.
I think there are also a lot of other fairphoners that have the same problem but don’t have the time to communicate it. You already waste so much time to solve the problem!!! It should be an instrument that make you save time, not waste more time!! Especially for its cost, that for people that try to work in a fair system it’s very high.
Anyway many of us, as responsible consumers and change makers, are very motivated to go on with the FP 2, with all its limits (bad camera…), but I have experienced almost all the serious problems that come in the forum (cable bought following the indication in the FP website that didn’t work, phone gone crazy after update, months to receive a reply from the customers service…), and other problems I didn’t have the time to fix yet, reading the workarounds (Bluetooth only working for JPGs, audio recording, micro and speakers volume, random reboots, overheating, camera click sound and focus, SD card…)
Something is being done at FP, for example the voluntary OS testing team.
But there is still a lot to do to get it working well, so please take note at FP. We will try and support you as long as we can, but many have already given up…
Food for thoughts… Thanks for all the work done We are proud of your work!
