And here it is! Our latest software update for Fairphone 3 and Fairphone 3+ users is now available.
Software Version: 3.A.0132.20211027
Security Patch Level: 5th of November, 2021
List of changes:
Fixed an issue that was causing, under certain conditions, the incoming caller ID to appear as “unknown”.
Fixed an issue that was causing, under certain conditions, the brightness level to go to zero when set to Automatic.
The network compatibility for several carriers has been enhanced.
Together with our partners, we test the software before its release, and in some instances where a software update might result in some problems for users on a specific network or in a specific country, we prefer to delay the software release for that specific customer base and fix all the potential issues before making the software available to everyone.
That means that depending on your network provider, some Fairphone 3 and 3+ users may receive this update later. Once the update is available you’ll receive a push notification to automatically update.
Just to clarify this is for the FP3 with Android 10 and you mention the FP4
Does that mean you are comparing it to a new FP4 you have and they have hardly been in circulation for much more than a week or two and use Android 11
Fairphone are not in the habit of reading all the topics, so when a problem is discovered by a user it makes sense to contact support@fairphone\dot/com
Only where there is a post from Fairphone would this be unnecessary
As far as Martin_Mattausch-Wie’s about waiting for two months. There is already a new update going through google certification. If it wasn’t included in that it may be quite a while ~ hence the benefit of ensuring Fairphone can confirm the issue in order to address it.
As mentioned Fairphone probably didn’t hear complaints from the Netherlands, which given the following is a bit or a concern.
Even though Vodafone Germany seem to be happy to work with Fairphone there was a 3 month wait for a fix for caller ID in Vodafone Germany ???
The next update is already going through google certification, so it may be worth asking Fairphone if they were aware of the problem with caller ID in the Netherlands and there is fix is in the next update or even further down the line.
All pushed updates are via the networks who are supposed to check they work OK before the customers update.
As OldRoutard indicated you can download and install but
a) It’s a bit of a chore and
b) There may be a reason that Tiscali haven’t pushed it
c) Rollout to each Network/carrier takes some time, but sure you should have had a few updates by now. Contact your carrier
