Note to self and to thread, dont want to call it a day just yet and dont want to jump to conclusions early, but this android update level seemingly brought much better wi-fi call performance on a FP3 where I had serious Wi-Fi quality and trouble with it, very bad and poor performance, Wi-Fi call being used but huge packet loss or unusable calls etc, very often needed to turn off Wi-Fi in the middle of the call, falling back to normal mobile network coverage for the ongoing call etc. Maybe this has got to do with the Wi-Fi layer in general. Where I use Wi-Fi with some FP3 phone, I often only use it with completely open and public Wi-Fi, meshed Wi-Fi of various community Wi-Fi projects etc, non-business grade, non-corporate but even none-home-use-private Wi-Fi even.
With the current android update, this Wi-Fi apparently is much more stable being used in the same places and same number of participating devices and other Wi-Fi clients etc. The FP3 now seems to stay much better connected to this Wi-Fi than before, or the packet loss is much lower etc, thus giving a better Wi-Fi phone-call. Just doing some uneducated and early guesses. Will see how this unfolds in the follwing days and weeks. If this holds true, I am kind of very happy that the Wi-Fi performance of FP3 has much improved.
Update works good here. No audio problems with regular phone calls.
I notice the same problem when using the Jitsi app for video calls. My voice is extremely low, almost not hearable to others. When using Jitsi web it is working fine.
So obviously there is some incompatibility between the FP3+ and apps used for video calls (Jitsi, WhatsApp, Signal, …).
Beside of that I am almost happy with this update - except the clock-space-bug, which is still annoying to me
And I guess the settings-suggestions-bug is still there (the workaround mentioned in this thread seems not to work anymore - at least in my case).
Very happy with how Fairphone has done good to get out security updates out quickly. While I am happy to see some bugs fixed, I am wondering if this is on the team’s radar, and if there is anything I can do to help: Echo in VOIP calls
I guess you mean this topic as the one you mention is for the FP2.
Also, AFAICT you are two to have experienced such an issue, it isn’t a lot compared to other software problems.
The best you can do for them to be aware is to #contactsupport as I had advised you, if not done already.
I still have the same problem as well. Video chat on WhatsApp and Signal have very low microphone volume. I am very dissapointed, I really thougt this update would solve it. My wife also has a Fairphone 3+ and has exactely the same problems.
Yes poor volume has been a reported problem, this update wasn’t set out to resolve this issue.
There are specific topics that detail more on this. Both my daughter and I had it from the beginning, in fact it’s the only reason I installed WhatsApp, to see what the problem is.
I did too, and for me it did work. Had to reconfigure my widgets afterwards, but no other unwanted effects. Did you see this post? Apparently at least one user had to go through some more steps.
Edit: the workaround also reset my default apps. No biggie.
/e/ is based on LineageOS and AOSP, arguably a fork of either of these. Android is a Google trademark, and contains proprietary parts which neither AOSP nor /e/ contain (though /e/ contains a FOSS replacement, microG). So the remark was actually accurate.
