My FP2 never worked well.
As you all know issues are of any kind: charger, screen, touch, battery, SIM cards, external memory, random reboots, failures in OS updates and many others. You name them.
There is nothing I can do without having to stop and waiting for the phone to exit its frozen status, even if I have to write plain SMSs.
Plain installations of the OS are not helping no matter how deep you get.
It is supposed to be a durable phone, but I got it less than a year ago and I am actually not able to install many applications due to incompatibility issues. Is this a durable phone? (I got it second hand almost new and never used. But I could have bought it from the official store, same model and same specs same date).
What about other FP2 still in use? Is anyone else experiencing the same problems?
If you are not, would you report about which apps do you use, is there anything you avoid?
I have the feeling that very common apps like Instagram are not well supported.
I am starting to think that the FP is a successful project but a failed phone. This is due to the fact that it is really changing the way in which people think about electronics, in terms on how fair they are. The company also managed to collect an interesting amount of funding last year and this stands for a wide support from the people. Anyway the phone is just a pain and I am afraid that if I buy FP3 it is just gonna end up the same.
Isn’t it better to buy a used mobile once every 2 or 3 years and send the old one to FP to be recycled? In this way you are also working toward a better environment and you are hopefully saving yourself much frustration.
Please let me know your thoughts, I’d actually love to change my mind 'cause at the end of the day I always end up cheering for my FP2.
