Software update: FP4.SP21.B.048.20230215

This sounds a bit dramatic. What exactly is the issue? You make it sound as though your phone exploded and killed your pet cat.


I notice that the battery usage statistics, which were not working since the switch to Android 12, are working again.

Are you sure? I still see the same issue happening in the battery usage overview. Only 3 hours of stats, but the phone has been on for a full day without a charge.


You are right… It is very ennoying

Thank you! Wide-angle camera sensor works perfectly.
Now we can record night sky timelapse with wide angle lens :blush:
In OpenCamera even the exposure and manual focus works great.

The problem with the update for me is that technically it didn’t fix any of the things that users reported. There is no improvement in sight for me.

  • Launcher is buggy
  • Bluetooth bug not fixed
  • Google At a Glace bug still there
  • The colors of the clock and the clock itself on the lockscreen

@Yasen_Tomov will this come to KPN Netherlands? Or do we need to wait more for A12?

– If you disregard the distortion. Apparently the stock camera app corrects this, but OpenCamera doesn’t, so when using the wide angle camera all straight lines become curves… :frowning_face:

If you mean the FP4.SP21.B.048.20230215 update, it’s the one everyone left out of the initial release will/should get (AFAIK).
I was stuck on A11 and got it a couple days ago (Orange FR), so if you’re still on A11 check your settings to see if it’s there.

Question to all those now on A12: Did your phone connect to 5G since the latest A12 upgrade?

While on A11 my phone did frequently connect to 5G, but since the upgrade it hasn’t. Now I haven’t moved those last days so I don’t know if it’s due to my carrier (something broken on the telephone mast, after all I’m in the boonies) or the phone itself. :thinking:

(And yes, “Preferred Network Type” is still “5G/4G/3G/2G”)

For the time being, KPN Netherlands is on Android 11. You will receive the upgrade as soon as it’s ready. Refer to this post for information about the reason.


@KurtF yes, people on KPN NL are still on A11. The update isn’t available yet.

@Yasen_Tomov thank you. I will try to be batient :slightly_smiling_face:


Could we have a manual minimum setting for brightness please? Now it’s definitely too dark for people with non-perfect eyes. See thread:

(To the mods: Please don’t censor this too. It’s a direct reply to a direct question of @Yasen_Tomov, so please do not remove it from here.)

No one is censoring, still the official way to report bugs is #contactsupport to ensure its not getting lost among hundreds of reports here.

Depends on how you find out if you have 5G. The system widget tells 5G:

But NetMonster tells LTE:

I’m no expert on this, and this is just a test from a single place.

By seeing what it says on top of my screen, next to the signal strength wedge.
It used to switch between 5G and 4G (depending on orientation) at this very spot I’m sitting, my phone on the desk. Since the A12 upgrade it’s firmly stuck on 4G.

Anyway, so yours (updated, I guess) does state 5G, which means it must be my local 5G network which is down. Some squirrel chewing through the cables or some such…

The Update does not solve my troubles to pair the right Libretone track air+. After pairing the left one, a message should apear to pair the right one. This is missing. The left is pairing, but I had to turn of the HD-Audio aptX setting. The reconnect when I take the left bud out of the charching box is not working. I have to go to bluethooth settings on fairphone 4 and touch on the Libretone track air+ entry. But then the left bud is working. Right one not at all.

Had some problems with the bootloader during the update which made my phone unusable.
