I’m not convinced that the bods at Fairphone are working round the clock as it has been 19 days since 3.A.0045 was released (as the nag just informed me). I’m not slating them for it though as they are in a far better position to know how many users are affected than I am. *.0045 came out very quickly so we can assume while it didn’t cure all ills for everyone, the number of folk affected by issues reduced. Not all problems are unique to Fairphone either so GOOgle should shoulder some the responsibility. (Yeah, good luck with that!).
Good to read another good report. Thanks.
I don’t think I read that slow charging has been reported as a bug before? It wouldn’t be put off if that was the only issue I got having said that. Pleased it seems to have resolved itself and I hope it was a one off. I take your report as another positive
Fantastic report! You may well have given users the power to remove a bug listed here in known bugs
With Android 10 (for those that don’t know), there are a duplicated layer of permissions which apply to apps that run in the background. This means that though you may have granted foreground permissions, they no longer apply when the app is running in the background. The Alarm is an example of an app that would require background permissions and it would explain why so many users are oversleeping! Have you notified ‘mgkoeln’ of your findings? I guess other apps would require background permissions to function correctly too. With foreground permissions, on Android 9, when an app first requires that permission, it would prompt you to “allow”, “allow once?? (can’t remember)” or “deny”. Now that foreground and background permissions have been separated, I surmise you will have to manually alter the background permission for each app you wish to run in the background or they just won’t work?
Regarding your annoyances, first one is GOOgle telling you what you must have. If you don’t like it, you have to vote with your feet and use an alternative launcher. Don’t know what to do about the second, but you are not alone there.
