I have been quite happy with the fairphone for a while now and have practiced my patience with all the small childhood sicknesses it had.
But now, I am getting somewhat frustrated.
A couple of days ago this “wrong roaming” thing happened in germany. As far as I have read the posts, that was annoying, but nothing serious.
But since then, my battery has turned from a reliable companion to a crazy nut. Has it lasted a good day (on not so busy days even longer), it now lasts only hours. My saddest record has been about 5h.
I thought I had done something wrong, changed the display etc and turned “low” everything I could find, but it didn’t help either.
Than I checked the Battery-App, depicting the “what was using the battery up” (settings -> bettery -> “verlaufdetails”). There I have spotted a weirdness. The battery App declares that a main drainer is the display. But when ever the “drainage” ( a drastic decrease of the battery power) happened, the mobile network signal is big, bright green.
Now, most of the time, my phone is connected to the W-Lan, so there should be no need to request great amounts of data from the mobile network.
So I figured, since battery drainage and the roaming thing happened at the same time there is a connection?
Or are these signs that the battery might “bloat” (what ever that is)?
Please help me making the phone my trustworthy companion again!
Thanks in advance!
