here I would like to ask a question concerning mouse-functionality on fairphone2. (I placed this question in the Android 6 category, because Android 6 seems to be the future of fairphone’s OSs. My question, however, applies equally well to Android 5.)
As you can read in my personal introduction, I would like to control a fairphone2 via a mouse cursor. (Most people might not even know, that a smartphone can be operated via a common mouse. It is analogous to how you operate a desktop PC with a mouse.)
As far as I know mouse-functionality is implemented in standard distributions of Android version 5 and later. For example, if one plugs (with help of an adequate USB-adapter) an usual USB-mouse into a Samsung Galaxy S6, then a mouse cursor appears on the smartphone-screen and everything can be done via the mouse.
Now, my question is whether the mouse-functionality is available in the fairphone’s OS, too?
Especially, is the mouse-functionality available in the fairphone’s Android 5?
And, will the mouse-functionality be implemented in the upcoming Android 6?
To check, whether mouse-functionality is integrated in your fairphone, you just have to connect a usual mouse via a USB-to-Micro-USB-adapted to the fairphone’s micro-USB-port. Then, either a mouse cursor appears on the screen and can be controlled via the mouse (in this case mouse-functionality is available) or nothing happens (in this case mouse-functionality is not included in the present OS).
It would be great if either the developers or some fairphone-users could give me feedback concerning the above stated questions!
