Same here. Crashes and reboots several times a day.
Phone is generally way more unstable since android 7.1.2 update.
Wifi doesn’t connect, apps/phone freeze and crash, phone boots very slowly… Very annoying…
Hi there, same problem for me. No problem at all before update, many problems immediately after, with rebooting as main problem. Very frustrating. I did a complete factory reset twice, but this did not help. Other problems and probably related: camera app stops suddenly all the time.
I also have this problem, just tested it some days ago, but I’m using LOS
Must of the times I’m using “Battery Charge Limiter” to avoid fully charging the battery.
My peek-runtime w/o reboot was 720 hours (=30 days) sofar, reboot reason then was a LOS update.
This confirms some of my observation (reboot on fully battery charge).
d2w, please bug report following my bug tracker.
There’s other occasion my phone reboots under FP OS, not sure if there’s something related to memory/cache usage on some app.
I have no account over there at the bugtracker, so I’m answering here …
Regarding “I have some paid apps belong to Google Play Store so going to LineageOS is not my option.”
Google stuff works just fine on LineageOS … you just have to install it. Open GApps offers packages you can choose from for doing this comfortably in TWRP. The minimum package to give you the Play Store would be “pico”.
For the current LineageOS 15.1 on the Fairphone 2 you would choose ARM - 8.1 - (package of your choice).
And since LineageOS is a so-called custom ROM, an Android variant not certified by Google (in contrast to e.g. Fairphone OS), you could look into Google Play Certification, Google’s way of allowing you to use a non-certified Android with the official Google Apps and services without having to fear being blocked by Google somewhen somehow, if Google would somewhen feel like enforcing this.
Just edited my entry. Please take a look at.
Thanks for your info. So even a paid app on the Play Store works on the LineageOS?
I certainly misunderstood about how the OS works with Google. I’ve once tried CyanogenMod OS (predecessor of LineageOS) a long time ago with other Android device and couldn’t figured out how, messed up with OpenGApp once. that’s the reason why I thought we can’t.
It makes no difference to the Play Store whether it runs on LineageOS or any other Android, as long as the necessary Google services are installed (and Google Play Certification is active for the device to be safe in a future in which Google might perhaps block non-certified devices).
I ran the Play Store and some paid Apps myself for quite some time with Open GApps pico installed on Fairphone Open OS and later LineageOS.
Unfortunately this prooved to be wrong. The phone keeps rebooting up to 15 times per day. Even after factory reset it did not stop rebooting. Does it since udate to Android 7.
Slightly fed up with FP II (one of the first …) Since I received it in January 2016 I replaced:
3 cases - now its my 4th
2 top modules
Altogether that makes up to around 250 Euros on replacement plus the original 530 Euros purchase costs: 780 Euros … - Plus the phone now seems to be finaly broken as the reboots have not stopped.
