Ah! That’s not good news as the update was touted to fix the problem with calls. The echo is an ongoing issue that was mainly associated with video calls but happens with normal calls when using the hands free option.
Looks like I’ll be putting in an official support request for this as it’s been going on since Oct 2020 for me
FP3: Seit dem letzten update im März 2021 funktionieren bei mir Anrufe meistens nicht. Ich höre kein Signal, der Anruf kommt meist nicht durch. Ärgerlich! Habe schon versucht die SIM Karte von Position 1 auf 2 zu stecken, hat nur kurzzeitig geholfen. Was kann ich noch probieren?
I bought a Fairphone 3+ less than two weeks ago. After setup I got this software-update and installed it.
The same day I tried videocalling with Whatsapp/Signal and ran immediately into the issues mentioned: The caller couldn’t hear me. Audio-calling other than normal phone gave the same problems when I tried to use the speaker.
I made a ticket but no answer yet.
In the meantime I flashed LineageOS 17.1. It was pretty easy and it solved problems I had with the official ROM. Normal calling is very clear, video calling with different apps are problem-free.
I hope the official ROM solves the issues but right now I’m happy with how the phone works.
An update over this software update:
I spoke with the seller of my Fairphone 3+ about the issues I’m experiencing. They offered a return for a new Fairphone.
So I did a stock ROM flash, version 8901.3.A.0054.20200929. Curious as I am, I tried a WhatsApp video call and everything works fine. Also the issue of poor video quality during a videocall, which I mentioned in the LineageOS 17.1 thread -here- disappeared.
So I’m going to flash the old version again -yay) before this software-update and keep it until a proper solution arrives.
@DeepSea I’m not sure what you are referring to exactly (updates, recognised problems, option for returns etc.) plus I’m sure you know this is a community forum and I have no idea of what decisions Fairphone make or prioritise let alone communicate with us mere mortals.
Ok Fairphone no doubt get complaints, when there is a certain number of the same issue they no doubt do a test.
Once the test is done and if confirmation is acknowledged (recognised problem) I don’t think there is a general method to inform all users only those that have the complaint. I imagine some issue are related to network, wifi and apps installed so Fairphone wouldn’t assume that for each problem they are aware of it is proper to inform all users
